An absence of ten days from Thora- asville, during which time Middle and Upper Georgia were visited, gives a splendid opportunity for comparing our own city with other towns and cities in the state. It is not the pur pose of the writer to make invidious comparisons hut he is content to con tinue his lot with Thomnsville aud her people, believing that their futur c is assured. It is certainly true that middle aud upper portions of the state are im proving; evidences of .such improve ment are to be seenr on every hand, and they arc of a nature to betoken solid progress, but Smith Georgia is not bellied in the march of ma terial growth that is abroad in the state. Taking Thomasville as the repraentntive town ofour section, it is not outside the pale of perfect truth to say that it shows more evi dence of solid thrift than any town or city of anything like its size in the state. Besides this, it is undoubtedly true, that if clean and well kept streets, neat and attractive' residences, beautiful flowers and gardens are to be taken as indicators of thrift, Thomasville will impress every visitor as the most attractive and prosperous town in Georgia. The good name of Thomasville has gone abroad, and it excites a thrill of pleasure to hear the many pleasant things that are said of Thomasville whenever her name is mentioned. Where so much is expected it will require extra efforts on the part of Thomasville to prevent disappointing people, who, attracted by her reputa tion, come to see, either with a view of buying or in search of health or pleasure. 1 -This means That out afford to relax their efforts to push the fortunes of our town. THOMAS COUNTY COMMISSION ERS. Mrs. >S. E. Rowlett, of Eric, Fla., is on n visit to her daughter, Mrs. J. J. Biggs, on Carroll Ilill, Mrs. Rowlett brings with her some fine samples of pine apples grown on her place in Florida. Miss Cora Cassels returned yester day from a visit to Savannah, and relatives, residing in Liberty county. The Chattahoochee passenger train brought in a large number of passen gers yesterday, many of them being residents of adjacent small towns com ing here to do their week's trading. Capt. Milton Brown, who was killed in Kansas by the cyclone of Thursday, was closely related to Jeweler \V. S. Brown, of this city. The friends of Mr. E. P. Fearn will be glad to know that he is improving, and will be able to be at his place ol business in a few days. Mr. Aleck S. White has returned to his work, His recovery hits been rapid and is a source of much gratifi cation to his friends. Messrs Snodgrass & Hawkins have rented offices in the Wright building, formerly occupied by the Enterprise Printing House. Mr. John Lewis has rented the Bruce store formerly occupied by B. Clewis & Co. He will open up a gro cery store next fall. The negro who was shot on the Jones place, some time ago, is im proving and will probably recover from his serious wounds. Mr. F. A. Jones, of Savannah, and Miss Tadic, his daughter, are on a 1321BROAB5ST - laOR.fJAOKBONl I visit to Mr. S. A. Jones, in this city. Messrs. Snodgrass & Hawkins, two of Thomasville’s young and clevor at torneys, have lormed a co-partnership to practice law, and have moved into the office formerly occupied by the Enterprise. See notice of Lewis A Blanton, and call and liquidate your indebtedness if you owe them anything, as Mr. Lewis retires from the firm and the business must be closed. The Governor Decides that the Commis sions Shall Issue. Atlanta, May 31.—Ou the re commendation of Judge Hanscll, the governor ou April 20 appointed as commissioners of road and reveuues of Thomas county, Messrs. A. P. Wright, John L. Finn, J. A. Bul lock, M. Iv. Malletlo and Jamc3 F. Lilly. The commissions were for warded to the ordinary of the county, but before the delivery (lie governor telegraphed that they be svith-held. Ilis attention had been called to a local act of 1887 for Thomas county, providing that these commissioners shall be appointed or confirmed by the grand jury of the county. After submitting the matter to the attorney- general the governor decided that the commissions should issue and has so advised the ordinary. The opinion reached, was that the local act is clearly unconstitutional, but the commissions were ordered is sued to the gentle nan named for other and valid reasons. It will be inferred from the above, which is a special to the Macon Tele graph, that the recommendation of the grand jury has not been noted on, and that the first commissions issued will hold. It is enough to say that Thomas county is safe in the hands of either board, whatever may have been the rearm for the action on the part of the governor. Mrs. R. W. McDonell and children, who have been spending some time with Mr, and Mrs. Geo.G. N. McDon ell, 'returned to their home in Macon yesterday. Our post office employes are cqm- plaining of dullness in their business. This is the most striking commentary on the state of trade that could be imagined. Mr. Y. B. Beasley, who was the night telegraph operator here (or the winter, but since then at JacksonWIle, passed through the city yesterday tor Albany, where he will be stationed. Capt. “Shuck” Whitaker sold a horse at auction, corner Broad and Jackson streets, yesterday. The price obtained was low, which shows that horses arc not in as much demand as money. My. Henry Johnson, of Patten, has a fine piece of cotton that lias been planted only five week; it will average fourteen inches high and is full of forms. Look out for Johnson, lie’s coming. Some Railroad Talk. A recent trip over the newly com pleted Georgia Southern and Florida railroad, from Valdosta to Macon, has given the reporter an excellent op portunity to sec what that line has done for the section through which it runs, and in turn to see what the country is doing lor the railroad. Ioadisone r ^||g||, There are on the line 53 saw mills, or an average of one to every two and three quarters miles of its entire length. These mills cut a vast amount of lum ber, which seeks a market over the road. What the Georgia Southern has done and is dqutg lor the section through which it runs would be dupli cated by a road from Thomasville to Cordele, The pine forests along such a line would give profitable employment to many mills, which would in turn give a fine business to the road. There is no better belt of timber in the south than that between Thomas ville and Cordele, and with a road con necting the towns, owned, controlled and operated for the benefit ot Thom asville, this lumber can be turned into money that will be spent here. This fact cannot be gainsaid. Thomasville needs a railroad outlet in the direction of Macon, Augusta and Atlanta more urgently than she needs any single elemnt to promote her growth.

Mr. Figg—Here’s a little toy I’ve brought for Tommy to amuse himself with. Pigs in Clover, I believe they call it. CHAPTER II. Tommy—Say, paw, ain’t you goin’ to lemnie see that puzzle? Mr. Figg—Go to bed! You ought to he in bed nu hour ago!” • chapter nr. Mrs. Figg—John Figg, are you going to sit up all night? Mr. Figg—I’ll be there in a minute. I’ve got them all in but oue. CHAPTER IV. Mrs. Figg—Have you been up all night, John Fiprg? Mr. Figg—None of your business. Tommy—.Say, paw, where’s my puzzle? Mr. Figg—In the stove. Recently, in my close attention in many years capacity at the circuit court, I have been suffering from partial or incipient paralysis of the right hand,or what is otherwise known as pen paral ysis, the result, of course of constant writing with that hand. With so little use of that member I am beginning to make my left hand very useful, and I find it a much more important Icat- tire than we usually imagine. I think the habit of cultivating the service ot the left hand should be more general and taught from early cht dhood; in that way the flexibility would be estab lished and the right hand saved from the great strain upon it. It is not at all necessary to be what is termed “left- handed” to be enabled to use that hand. I know one young lady artist who is not at all so. yet who can use the left hand as well as the right per fectly by cultivation. She can draw with the left hand as easily as she can with the right one, turned toward the right. My case should be a warning to writers especially, not to leave all strain to one Hand, but to cultivate the service of the other, or, at least, its assistance. I now have to do much of my writing with my left, and accom plish it quite as well as with the right, and 1 am, by no means, left-handed. —St. Louis Globe-Democrat. 10c line of assorted Dress Goods.
