A Cosy Home.
The residence of Dr. S. J. Cobb, on
Hansell street, is one of the most de
sirable in the city for many reasons.
Its location, on a wide street, with
plenty of depth of lot, and one of the
highest points in the city, gives it ex
ceptional advantages from a sanitary
S omtof view. Again, when Dr. Cobb
ecided to build a winter home in
Thomasville, which he did after, hav
ing made the tour of Florida, his pim
was to build a home that would com
bine the advantages of thorough con
venience and he gave minute attention
to every detail that could aid in this
work. The house stands at sufficient
distaucc from the ground to insure
thorougli vcntillatiou, and the body of
the house, in addition to a wide hall
and plenty of windows and doors, has
a projection on the north and south
sides, extending something like three
feet from the main building, with
windows in their cast and west sides,
that give a cross current in each of
the rooms. In the matter of closets
the Dr. is well supplied, there being
one or moro in each room.
Unlike most people who build
houses the Dr. paid special attention
to his kitchen. It is cool, cosy and Con
venient. The well is within six feet
of the door leading to the kitchen,
and there are china closets, utinscl
closets, washing apparatus, all close at
The inside finishings arc of cypress
and pine and are so well put together
that each door shuts as if on rubber
Dr. Cobh is an advocate of coal
grates, and lias, in an ample and well
arranged cellar, enough of the best
grade of Jcllicocoal-to last him three
-The Dr. will leave with his family
iu a few days for Tennessee, but will
return next winter.

value of t’ie Atlanta and West Point

where Mr. Grady delivers an address
before the literary societies, on the
25th. The party will travel in a spe
cial car, witli all the conveniences and
luxuries known to modern railway
travel. Among those who will be of
the party are Chancellor Boggs, of the
University of Georgia, Prof. White,
Milt. Reese, Tom Glenn, Judge New
man and others.
An Act of Justice.
Some weeks ago the Times-Enter-
prise protested against the tempera
ture given Thomasville in the cotton
belt weather bulletin published in the
Morning News. It is a matter of con
gratulation that this matter has been
set]right. In yesterday’s weather report
Thomasville is set down as the cool-
st place in the cotton region, except
two, and as having the same tempera
ture as those towns.
For the Johnstown Sufferers.
In the Times-E.nterprise of some
days ago, Mr. L. Schmidt, the popu
lar soda water maker aud dealer, on
Jackson street, gave notice that he
would give the entire gross receipts of
his business for last Friday to the suf
fers by the great Conemnugh valley
disaster iu Pennsylvania.
A number of Indies kindly under
took to canvass the city for tho
sale of soda water aud ice cream tick
ets. They succeeded in selling 848
worth of tickets, which reflects equal
credit on their zeal and the liborality
of our people. Without making in
vidious distinctions, it is not improper
to say that Miss Addie Goldberg sold
the largest amount, 812.70.
Yesterday morning Mr. Schmidt
turned over to the Times-Exterprise
873.97, realized from the sale of tick
ets and cash sales made, which amount
will be forwarded with other subscrip-
tions-alrcady in hand.
Mr. Schmidt’s liberality in this
matter cannot he too highly com
mended, and it furnishes a splendid
example, worthy to be followed by
others. The duty of aidiug the. un
fortunate does not rest more heavily
on him than on tho rest of our people,
and yet he has come forward with a
donation which exceeds that of any
other man iu the State.
It was suggested to the Ti.mes-E.v-
terprise yesterday, that a canvass of
the town would result in a consider
able increase to the amount already
donated by our citizens. It would
seem to he unnecessary, however, to
make a personal appeal for such a
The fund already in hand will he
held till Tuesday, and if you wish to
add to it drop in at this office and
leave what you give.
■ ~ •*' Tt« Peach Crop.
Georgia has never known such a
peach crop before. The Savannah
market has been glutted during the
past week and prices were down to
nothing. The early varieties that are
now going to market arc poor keepers,
and must be disposed of within two
days after picking. Our home market
is well supplied, and prices are rapid
ly tending downward, and in a few
days they will be low enough to ena
ble housekeepers to use them for pre
serving and canning.
Delivered the Medals.
Mr. A. R. Jones delivered the medals
at the commencement exercises of
Middle Georgia College at Milledgc-
villc last week.
His speeches on the occasion has
been very highly spoken of by those
that heard it.
