We take pleasure in calling atten tion to the advertisements of Mr. L, Schimdt. the proprietor of the Thom asville Bottling Works. Helms re cently moved into the large and handsome store-room formerly occu pied by Mrs. Carroll, andjhas fitted the room up in handsome style, where he will furnish the very best of soda water, milk shakes, ice cream, etc. He is also doing a very large up in fcoutti, and his trade reaches nil over this section.

Meynardic Dead. It will be sad news to railroad men throughout the Plant System to learn that Capt. Meynardic, the veteran railroad conductor, is no more. He died at his home in Jacksonville, Fla., yesterday morning at G:30 of bowel trouble. Way back iuto tho sixties Capt. Meynardic was the fir# [conduc tor that ever brought a freight train into Thomasville, and no man in the service was better known and liked by all than he was. Universal regret was expressed here yesterday on learn ing of his death, though it has been expected some time. At the convention of Knights of Honor, recently held in Indinapolis, the cordial reception and courteous treatment accorded the southern mem- bars, were so much appreciated that a Georgia delegate took occasion to ex press his sense of the goodness of the people through a reporter of the Indi anapolis News. Georgians know how to entertain strangers within their gates, and they duly appreciate any kindness that may be shown. These exchanges of courtesies between citizens of differ ent sections arc tending to break up all jectional feeling and cultivate na tional brotherhood. Monticello Items. We get the following infesting items from the Monticello Constitu tion. Messrs. Moore & Williams, of Thomasville, were in town yesterday and gave out the contract lor clean ing ofl the lot for the brick yard.

The surveying corps of the Augus ta, Thomasville and. Gulf Railroad lire vigorously pushing the work south ot Tallahassee towards Cam- belle. WOOLFOLK ONCE AGAIN. Sanderson’s Crops Suffering Sanderson, Fla., May 29.—The continuance of the drought much longer must affect the yield of cotton and corn. The planting season opened very late, many having recently re planted. This was caused by tho cold wave in the first part of May, which destroyed the seed. The fruit crop will be an average one. The Notorious Prisoner Will Cost Seven Thousand Dollars. . Macon. Ga , May 28,—Once again Tom Woolfolk becomes a leading top ic of conversation, by reason of his trial set to lake place at Perry, on Monday, June 3d. Airangements have been' made bv the Central railroad to run a special train- to Perry from Macon on Monday night, leaving here at 6:30, in order to accommodate the witnesses, lawyers and all others connected with the case. There will be fully rso such persons. There are 125 witnesses alone, and to each of these witnesses Bibb county will have to pay $2 per day and allow 623 cents per mile for every mile traveled going to and from the trial. It is estimated that the Perry trial will cost Bibb county not less than $7,000. It is possible that both sides will be ready for trial. Capt. Rutherford lias announced that he will be well enough to go into the trial. Woolfolk liimsell says be is anxious for the trial to take- place. He says that he is tired slay ing in jail and does not wish any post ponement. He is prepared to accept the verdict, whatever it is. He insists on the belief that the jury will not hang him.

Fort Valley, Ga., May 28,—Un der the supervision of President S. H. Hawkins, Colonel H. C. Harris and Chief Engineer H. L. Collier, the surveying corps offthe Atlanta and Florida extension started out ''this morning to make a preliminary sur vey of the route iront here to Cordele. They will survey one route going and one on their return. After an approx imate estimate they will take the cheapest route. The time of the pre liminary survey will be only a few weeks, then the line will be perma nently located, and. grading com menced, which will be pushed as fast as money, men nnd mules can push it. At no far distant day Atlanta and Fort Valley will have an independent line to d-iep water, thus placing both cities in a much better position as to freight rates. There arc many inquiries for resi dences aud building lots here, which can only be accounted for by the cer tain extension of the Atlanta and Florida railroad, which will prove a great boom to the property owners of our town and vicinity. There is no use doubting, Fort Ynllcy is fast coining to the front and ero tho lapse of many years will occupy a promi nent commercial position in southwest Georgia. It gives us pleasure to note wprk.j5qing.qn iu puy old to add our commendation to'all that might be said favorable to that town and section. When ive get our road to Cordele, and the Fort Valley road reaches that poiiit. wc shall exnect both town's to improvi. The First Trip. Americus, Ga., May 28.— A spe cial train of nine coaches left Atuer icus this morning for Columbus via the .Savannah and Western railroad, loaded with firemen and their frieitdB, who went to attend the firemans’ tour nament in that city to-day. This was virtually the first passenger train to go over the new road, and made tiie trip without accident hr delay. The excursionists returned to Araer- ious to-night. Thus is opened tip nuother route to the West if wo could get to Cordele. A line from Thomasville to Cordele will connect us with Savannah, At lanta, Macon and Columbus over two different lines in each ease, tints giving us the benefit of competition. Hurry up the work. Tlte line to Cordele is being pushed from Fort Valley. Haytian Commissioners. Washington, May 29.—It is re garded as probable by those in the se crets of the state department that neither Lew Wallace nor Beverly Tuck er will go to Hayti. Mr. Wallace is sincerely desirous not to go. Mrt Tucker wants to go, and is very much broken up because he cannot go, but that lie cannot seems certain. “I never made the same mistake twice,” Picsident is quoted as saying to-day. Secretary Blaine still stands by Mr. Tucker, and insists that the objections to Mr. Tucker are really hitting at him. He thinks that Mr. Tucker is a much abused man, who has been vin dicated by his appointment pnder for mer republican administrations from any and all aspersions cast upon him. But Secretary Blaine is not President. The matter will probably be discussed in tnc cabinet Friday, and it may be indefinitely laid upon the table. Woolfolk in Jail at Perry. Perry, Ga., May 29. —Thomas Woollolk arrived in Perry this morn ing. He left Macon on the 3:15 train, escorted by the sheriffs of Bibb and Houston counties.
