We will fjo oqr best to merit the good opinion of our people. Thomasville has 40 pules of streets. To keep then} in cyder U a work of great magnitude, and that they irife kept in fine order is apparent to those that have occasion to travel them. What’s the sign ? A drove of some thirty or forty white cranes were seen flying Northward over the town a day or two since.

Volunteer Signal Observer Bondu- rnnt is lveartily co-operating with the Times-Enterprise to secure for Thomasville a correct report of daily teraperuture. “Merchant” joins issue with our poet drummer of Sunday in the posi tion he took thnt there were in merchants in heaven. This idea, if carried to its last analysis, would involve the tradesman in somo hard ship. With the facilities the Times ; Enterprise has for doing first class job work, and its determination to compete with prices from any respon sible house; you have 110 excuse for sending your, work away. Sustain home industries, if you would have them prosper. Sheriff Hurst returned last evening from Columbus,where he went on Sun day morning. Mr. Hurst went in charge of Mr. Warner Jones, a gentle man who had been down to Appa- lachicola, on a fishing frolic, and had become deranged. Mr. Jones is a prominent merchant of Columbus, and it is to be hoped he will soon recover. Qppd Pividends'. Every mail, woman aud child in Thomasville draws a good dividend from every successful enterprise that is started in the city. No matter whether it he a bank, a’ hotel, a store, a workshop or a newspaper. If this be truo, and no one will gainsay it, it is then incumbent on every mau, woman aud child to help each of these enterprises'. You may. not be called on to take a money stock in them, but you can aid them by speak ing a kindly, hopeful word for them. In short, you ought to cum your dividends. Step by Step. Just now Atlanta is agitatiug the question ot new and enlarged water works. There is no opposition to the move, but there is a division as to the means to be provided for paying for the increased supply. One faction favors issuing bends to pay for the new works; another one favors the poliev of paying for the improvements as they arc mode, as far as this is nos- sihle. Mr. Inman, in an interview published in the Constitution, gives it as his opinion that Atlanta ought not to increase her bonded debt, if she can possibly help it, even to pay for such a necessity as water. He says that one strong point in Atlanta's favor in the past lias been her small indebtedness and low taxes. The views of Mr. Inman are entitled to great weight, for he is one of the best financiers in the South, It will be necessary in the near future to make some costly improve 1 ments in Thomasville, in the way of providing a system of sewerage. The Times-Enterrrise has cited the views of Mr. Inman to illustrate the need of conservatism and caution in providing the means for paying for their improvements. It has been one of Thomasville’s proudest boasts that she had uo bonded debt, and the rate of taxation has been so low that it has drawn investments that would not otherwise have come here. It is, of course, impossible -to pay for what we need as it is done, but it would seriously retard the future growth of Thomasvillo if she were to be placed under the incubus of too much debt. The superb business man is the one that strains a point to pay hiB obliga tions as th'eiy accrue ralher than allow them to accumulate, trusting to the future to provide for the obligations of'to-day. 'Conservatism is, therefore, the watchword ol the hour. Merchants in Heaven. Your little drummer “Burgess’* In his lines of yesterday, “No Merchants are in heaven,” He forced himself to say. He says that he will stay there But In this ho tells a — If tradesmen do not live there He will surely quit the sky. The concentrated forces Each of heaven, earth and hell. Would not retain a drummer, Where no merchant he could sell’ —MEBCHANT. Council Meeting. In the council meeting last night it was determined to have an election on the 2Gth of June to determine the question of issue or no issuo of bonds for park. Col. AVright, chairman of finance committee, announced that he had borrowed 83,000 from Mr. Masury at at eight per cent interest. Mr. Mitchell was given control of the chain gang to lay water mains. The Videttes’ Fair. -The fair given by the Valdosta Videttes opens to-day and will con tinue three days. The S. F. & W. has placed round trip tickets on sale, good until the 24th at one fare. Thomasville ought to send down {a delegation. The Trade in Lumber. ■ Mr. John Beverly told a Times- Enterprise reporter yesterday morn ing that the demand for lumber was better than he had ever seen it before. Lumber means building, and building means business for tho mechanics, business tor the merchants, and money for all. Be Bald no More. Good Roads. Thomas county has long been noted for its good roads. Shakspear said that reputation was often got without merit, arid lost without deserving. This would not apply to the Thomas county roads, but a very close acquaintance with them would not bear out the splendid repntation they have acquired. The truth is the number of public roads has increased more rapidly thnn the road working population, and as a result, while our roads are the best in the state, and this is no idle boast, an im provement in the road laws, or a more rigid enforcement of those we have, would give us even better roads, and that we need them goes without saying. The Best of the Season. Mr. M. A. McKinnon has left at the Times-Enterprise office some stalks of cotton, taken from a field of twenty-five acres. They measure fifteen inches iu heighth, aud have seven or eight forms on them. It is now iu order for the man that can beat this to come to the front. . Burned. We regret to learn that the resi dence of Mi. James Hicks, at Patten, this county, w?,s burned on Monday afternoon, about one o’clock. Loss about 8800, insurance 8500. Action of t}je Southern Farmers. The convention of the Southern farmers at Birmingham adopted cotton bagging, thus putting all the cotton states on this line. We trust our en tire southern section will now discard all other kinds of covering for cotton. Sabbath Services. • The services in tho variouschurches Sunday were well attended. Thomas villo is peculiarly fortunate in having devoted pastors and as a rule these menu'good congregations, Mr. Albert Winter left on last ove- uiug’s train for Atlanta, where he goes as £ delegate td the Road Con gress, which meets on Wednesday. This body is calculated to do much good for the people at largo, and if is to be hoped that we shall spa speedy results from their action. Mr. llenry Storm, vice-president, Mr. Peter Miller, treasurer, and Mr. W. M. Corry, general manager of the Florida Tobacco Producing and Trad ing Company, of Quincy, were in the city last Saturday, registered at the Whiddon. Mr. Miller left for New York yesterday at 12:50. This com pany has done much to develop the lovely hill country around Quincy, and better than all they have made theit venture profitable. A drummer wns in town yesterday selling a nostrum that is warranted to produce a thick growth of nair on tho baldest pate. A reporter saw him in close conference with a well known mau about town, whose capillary ap pendage has yielded to the ravages of time and—he is a married man, which may account for his lack ot hiiir. Results will be given later. PRICES AT LEVY’S The boys have a good joke on Jack Linton, Ask him about it.
