The Melon Crop.
The melon crop has begun to move
lively. The Tallahassee, which sail
ed from Sarannah Saturday evening,
for Now York, took out upwards of
8,000 melons. This is a heavy ship
ment for the season. The size of the
melons has been greatly reduced by
the dry weather, and the earlier ones
will be small. As the earlier melons
come into competition with the heav
iest southern peach crop ever known,
it is likely that the price will be low.
The Pear Outlook.
It is now almost certain, barring the
accidents ol storms, that the shipment
LeConte pears will be fully as large
this season as last. The heavy
peach crop of Georgia and
the Carolinas is not duplicated
in . Maryland and Delaware.
Those states a only report something
like half a crop, and the probabilities
are that the prices obtained for pears
will be out of market before pear ship

It will no doubt be of interest to
some of our townsmen, and of very
great interest to the traveling public
and winter visitors to our state, to
know that the Whitlock House is to
rebuilt at once. It is to be owned
the Whitlock House Co. To say
that Mr. Jos. M. Brown is largely
interested—he and M. G. Whitlock
being the principal owners—is a suf
ficient guarantee of the success of the
undertaking. It is to be more than
twice as large as the old house, and sup
plied with every modern improvement
possible. It will bo a grand and impos
ing structure; one of which the whole
state will be proud. It is to he loca
ted about three blocks further from
the depit tliau the old, on the same
street and on an elevation which will
insure magnificent views of the sur
rounding country in every direction.
The spot seems by nature formed
for this purpose, being the most sui
tably' adapted to a house of this kind
it has ever been my pleasure to
behold. The same genial, accom
modating Mr. Whitlock, who ran the
old house, will operate the new. To
say this is to say that a successful
career for it is assured. It is my
pleasure each minute to come in con
tact-with many wlio have taken shel
ter with Mr. W., and in no single
instance have they (lone otherwise
than sing his praises. He now ope
rates the Elmwood, a neat and new-
house, the largest in the town.
It is a source of deep regret to me
that I have not been able to return to
Thomasville. as early as I expected.
