Tho Park Question
The lease and option of purchase
held by the city on Paradiso Park
expires with the year.
The benefits to the city from the
use of this splendid piece of property
as a park have increased vith the three
years thflt has passed since it was
leased and the purchase option se
cured, and as a natural sequence the
necessity of keeping it open as a park
for all time to come has increased in
the same ratio.
As showing how the question is re-
garded by outside parties, that are
conversant with the needs and future
of the city, we give an extract from a
private letter received from a well
known New York gentleman, who has
spent many seasons in Thomasville,
and who will, in all probability spend
many more here. The gentleman
“I am pleased to see that you advo
cate the purchase of Paradise Park,
for the insignificant sum of 815,000.
When our Central Park was outside
the city, and it was proposed to pay
(1 think) about 812,000,000 for it, it
met with determined opposition from
certain quarters. The same parties
that then opposed the purchase would
oppose the sale of it now for 8100,-
000,000. Indeed for building lots (as
it is almost in the heart of the city)
it would bring more than 8100,000,-
000. Never was money more judi
The writer of this letter takes pre
cisely tho same view of this matter
that every visitor will take, and it is
not too much to say that the same
views are entertained by a great many
of our own people; that is to say, that
Thomasville cannot afford to lose the

The Augusta Chronicle, speaking
of the Volunteer soldiery of Georgia,
“Our southern cities, with one or
two exceptions, do not keep up their
martial spirit, and people who
once prided themselves upon soldier
ly skill and instinct have allowed
the support of these volunteer com
panies to go down.
The State of Georgia contributes in
a niggardly way to the citizen-
soldierly. South Carolina provides
for her men more handsomely. So it
is left for the towns and cities to do
their parts to sustain and encourage
the companies. While the people
have begun to provide handsomely
for the soldiers’ homes, let us look to
a permanent home for the young
soldiery of the city. We mean, of
course an armoty. This should be

the most central and conspicuous
corners, and should provide meeting
rooms, drill halls, reading and club
rooms, gymnasium and ordinance
Now why could not, why should
not the Thomasville Guards have an
armory? The Times-Enterprisk
suggested sometime ago, the advisa
bility of the company, at the earliest
practical day, putting up au armory.
It would give them a home, a habita
tion, and better still, would insure
the permanency of the organization.
Every Southern town, with 5,000
people, or less even, ought to have a
well drilled military company.
