Thek ordered them some time ago hut as, yet the birds have failed to arrive. 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 hand. The inside finishings arc of cypress and pine and are so well put together that each door shuts as if on rubber springs. 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 years. -The Dr. will leave with his family iu a few days for Tennessee, but will return next winter. The tailroad assessors, to assess the value of t’ie Atlanta and West Point and Georgia Pacific, will meet in At lanta next Tuesday. Hon. S. G. Mc Lendon, who is one of the commission, left last night, going via Savannah. Mr. McLendon, before returning, will, upon the invitation of Henry Grady, accompany that gentleman and a party of friends to the University of Virginia, 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 cause. 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. SIGNAL SERVICE BUREAU}) AT K. Thomas JrV 126 Broad Sired. C. S.
