One of our merchants on yesterday

living within ten miles ol Bambridgc.
This item has a moral: If»you wanf
good goods at low prices, come to
Thomasville; read our paper and go
to some merchant who wants to sell
(all merchants who want to sell bad
enough to offer bargains advertise,and
you can’t make a mistake it you in

It might not be a bad idea to sub
scribe for the Times-Enterprise also,
to keep posted.
As will be seen, by reference to offi
cial notice of Mayor Hopkh s, an elec

26th day of June; to vote upon the
question of issuing $15,000 in bonds
to pay for Paradise Park and for the
additional purpose of paying for water
works, s^weragfc, &c. Themasville
fully appreciates the importance of
these questions. It is well known that
the town lias an option on Paratflle
Park which expires next January. This
place has been properly denominated
the lungs of the town, and is one of
the most important attractions of our
beautiful city, affording, as it does,
health-giving properties to our numer
ous winter visitors, who have very
appropriately given it the name of
In the near future this will be
a public necessity, as it is now
most important luxury; but
outside of this the purchase will be
eminently a proper investment for
the city, and will be a safe one in any
emergency. It is, however, useless
for us to say anything on this line.
Our people are sufficiently aware of
the importance of having the park,and
there is probably no difference of opin
ion on that question. It is recognized
as a public necessity, and our people
will cheerfully acquiesce in its pur
A Word to Farmers.
Heretofore the saving of hay has
been little practiced by the burners of
this section. The mildness ot the
winters enables the stock to go through
with comparatively little feed, and
hence the neglect ot the, hay crop
Hor.es are fed either on oats or corn,
and, if the latter, then todder is : ub
stituted for hay. Few appreciate (lie
damage done to qprn by^ 'snipping- off
the fodder, 01 the cost ol saving this
forage. Wc suggest that our farmers
experiment a little this ^ear on this
subject. Weigh the corn where the
fodder lias been stripped and an equal
quantity where it has been left on the
stalk, Also prepare a piece of land
for hay (the natural grasses) and count
the cost, per hundred weight, of sav-
mg hay and (odder and see how the
account stands. We think one exper
iment will satisfy any one that hay is
the cheaper and better. There is al
ways a market for hay and there is no
good reason why this should not be
come a paying crop here as it is in
the north and west.
Parties are requested to be careful
in the observance of the city ordinance
in reference to throwing paper or oth
er rubbish on the streets. As several
runaways have occurred from paper
blowing on the streets lately, parties
tyho sufter damage will likely have the
parties violating the ordinance before
the mayor. Place barrels in front of
your store and put your trash in it, for
removal by the city carts. We are
requested to call particular attention
Mr. W. R. Gunn, the architect,
has developed into an egg broker.
Being in a neighboring town a day or
£wo since, he bought eighty dozen
eggs aud had them shipped to a gro
cery merchant here. This relieved
the egg famine which has existed for
two or three days in Tliomasville.
Mr. Gunn has the happy faculty of
turning his hand to anything, from
drawing the most elaborate and mod
ern plans of public or private build
ings, to supplying a market. In

John Haman, (no relation, or it' so,
very distant, to the Haman who was
hung in olden time), a colored youth,
was arraigned before Justice Mardre
yesterday for stealing snuff from Mr.
Jas. B. Hancock, near McDonald,
in this county. The boy was evidently
“up to snuff” through the influence of
his mother. His employer, in the
kindness of his heart, stood Ins bond
and took him back home.
The Jacksonville Council.
Governor Fleming has just com
pleted the list ot the councilnicn for
he city of Jacksonville under the
now charter. Here they are: ,
Ward one—B. F.'D.llon, L. C. Em
Ward two—A. W. Cockrell. Jr., C.
Ward three—Frederick Pasco, F.
Ward four—D. U. Fletcher, C. &
Ward five—T. W. Roby, O. L.
Ward Six—T. J. Bovil, J. W. Mil-
Ward seven—J. 11. Stephens, W.
Ward eight—E. E. Bclisario, Oscar
Ward nine—C. B. Rogers, D. T.
It will be seen that there is one re
publican and one democrat in each
ward, except in the third and eighth
where both appointees are democrats.
This makes eleven democrats and
seven republicans In the full board.
The notification of appointment by
the governor empowers them to meet
and organize, and makes it incum

In their war against the Bagging
Trust the Southern cotton planters
are receiving assurances of sympathy
from unexpected quarters. A few
days ago wc quoted an article from’
the Chicago luter-Ocenn, urging the
farmers to stnuil firmly by their reso-
lutiou to substitute cotton cloth for
jute bagging, and assuring them that
they could, by united action, defeat
the trust. The Pittsburg Chrouicle-
Telegraph commends the agreement
of the Farmers’ Alliances in the South,
to use cotton cloth for bnliug this
year’s cotton crop, and says:
“This is a much more sensible and
effective method of fighting the monop
oly than the holding of indiguation
meetings tuid the adoption of frothy
resolutions denouncing the jute trust.
If they adhere to it.it will have the
effect not only of eventually wiping
out the monopoly, but of establishing
the manufacture of cotton cloth suit
able for bagging at home.' It will
keep in the country the money con
sent to India for jute, create a market
for the lower giades of cotton, and
thus improve its price, aud add a new
industry that will give employment
to thousuuds of hands.”
Hon. W. W. Gordon chairman of
ihe Stale F’inance Committee has just
finished examining the accounts and
cash in Treasurer Hardeman's office,
and ot Comptroller General Wright’s.
He said to a correspondent ol the
•‘We have thoroughly overhauled
both the Treasurer’s ant} the Comp
1 roPer's offices. We were satisfied in
the beginning that everything was all
right and as it should be, but we want
ed to be able to report it so of our own
personal knowledge. One important
result achieved by such an examination
as has been made is the knowledge ob
tamed of the system under which these
departments of the slate arc operated,
and the suggestions of improvement
in the system which have occurred to
business men on the committee.' 1
The St. Louis Republic says: New
England cotton factories are beginning
tq transfer their plants and business to
the south. One from Vermont goes to
Alabama, and a Connecticut concern
half a century old has arranged a trans
fer to South Carolina. Nothing will
save the New England manufacturers
of the common grades ot cotton except
a tariff revision which will open foreign
markets to them.
