A fairer flower never blushed or bloomed in June, than Miss , whose eighteenth birthday occurred yesterday. Born and reared in this fair South land, the roses have budded and blos somed bn her checks for eighteen summers. From the tiny little todler through the stages of playhouse, dolls and school days, the woman of to-day takes her place, looking, perhaps, wistfully back at the switfly past years agone, while the fntnre, tinged and brightened with the allurements of hope, beckons her on to even fairer fields and brighter scenes; scenes of love, happiness and usefulness.

The mourners' seats in the police court yesterday were full of penitents and their frieuds; in fact it was the largest police court held in many a day.

The indications are that he will soon be in the hands of the hangman. Mr. John I. Parker went down to Metcalfe yesterday to return with Mrs. Parker, who has been visiting there. We were pleased’ to meet Mr. Wal ter Peeples, of the Valdosta Times, in town yesterday. He took in the hanging. For two hours yesterday the doors of the undertakers were thrown open so as to admit all who wished to view the body of Will Debill. About two bundled took advantage of the oppor tunity. The sound of saw, hammer trowel, is heard on-evw hand. .Yog can’t keep Thomasville down. She continues to grow and spread, in spite of the croakeis. Injustice, however, to the place, we must say there are very few chronic croakers here. A1 most every man, woman and child have confidence in the future of the place. And their confidence is well founded. Thomasville merchants arc carrying splendid lines of goods. And they are selling at prices which defy com petition. A few more fleeting months, and the tide of Northern travel will be setting southward. Let it come. Thomas ville will be prepared and ready to cate (or all who come here. Do you ever slop to'think, at night, when retiring, that faithful guardians are watching and guarding the sleep ing town, through the long hours ot the night? of Mrs. G. W.

You must watch these young bachelors. Stand up for your town; talk up for your town; whoop up your town; in short, keep it humming. A town is never completed. There should be no let up. This is a wonderfully active and pushing age. Towns and com munities who sit down and wait to be built up, wait for somebody to come along and do the work, invariably get left. And they deserve to get left. Some Handsome Mantels. The Thomasville Variety Works shipped to Mr. R. H. Barnes, Val dosta, two of the handsomest mantles ever made in the-state. One is a double mantle with a bairasoine mirror let-into tho top. The other is a handsome single one. Both arc made of curled pine, and it is hard to conceive a prettier wood for such uses. The designs of their man tles, showing the grain of the .pine, is something exquisitely beautiful and far beyond any painting that man can do, showing that in some cases nature, unadorned, is adorned the most. Nothing can excell in beauty our curled pine when finished prop erly. The Variety Works arc prepared to do work in all of the various woods common to this section, and with im proved m’achincry and skilled work men they can do it in the best manner.
