into account the great impetus the
road will give the town. Every de
partment of business will feel the
quickening impulses of the new road.
With an independent line to Cor-

Mr. J. II. Jenkins has just had
completed a new model of his sash'
balance patent that is both useful and
ornamental. It is made of curleyjpine
and the grain being highly polished,
shows up well.
Our correspondent at lamonia, Fla,,
informs us that two colored women
got into a row there the other night,
and Roseina Gilam had her throat cut
by Sallie Walker. Dr. Robinson
attended tho wounded woman, but
had no hopes of her recovery.
Do the merchants of Thomasville
want to regain their lost trade? Then
let them help to build a new railroad
which will make Thomasville a com
petitive point, thereby giving them
advantages in freight rates which can
be had iq no other way.
Mr. H. AY. Kurtz, of J. H. Seward
& Co., Baltimore, came up from Quit-
man yesterday to spend Sunday in
our city. Mr. K. bos.bought melons
on the line of the S. F. & AV. Ry., for
a number of seasons, and has put
quite ,.&• lot of money in.circulation
among the farmers in this section.
Agent AVilder, of the Southern
Express Company at this point, told
a Times-Enterprise reporter yester
day that pear rates for the coming
season had not yet been arranged.
The Express Company is waiting for
the railroad lines to make its freight
rate charges. It is not likely that
any marked' change, from -the rates of

It Will be on the im of July.
gl^B “Yours, most of the time,
J. M. Blackshear,"
says that the big picnic at Duncan-
villc will conic off on Thursday, the
• nth of July. Mr. Blackshear says
« everybody is invited. The occasion
will be a very enjoyable one. The
eating editor of the Times-Enterprise
will be there
For More Than Half a Century.
Mr. E. M. Young, one of the
staunch farmers of the county, walked
into tho Times-Enterprise office
yesterday and renewed his subscrip
tion. Mr. Young has foil,wed the
plow for fifly-cight years, which is a
fiuc record, ft may be that tho fact
that he has always paid for his court
ty paper may have something to do
with his hale old age. At any rate his
example is worthy of imitation.
Round Trip Tickets,
The Savannah, Florida & AVestcrn
Railway will sell tickets at the rate of
one fare lor round trip on July 3rd and
4th, limited to July 6th, to all stations
on its lines. All lines in the Southern
l’as c enger Association will sell round
trip lickets to those wishing to go be-
yond the line of the S. F. & W. Ry.
Tho Melon Crop at Pelham.
^ Mr. John J. Mize, of Pelham, has
already sold 4 cars of melons on the
Jrack at $126 net, each, and has ship
ped 6 or 8 more, for which he has had
Hon. J. L. Hand has shipped even
more than Mr. Mize. The money re
ceived tor melons at Pelham will run
way up into the thousands this season.
Mrs. Mary Pratt Small, wife of Gen.
M. P. Small, of the United States army,
died in Baltimore June 24th. Mrs.
Small spent last season in Thomasville,
the guest of Capt. H. M. Sapp.
A Pointer For Merchants.
With a new railroad, making this a
competitive point, thus insuring low
rates ol freight, and a cotton compress,
Thomasville would regain all her lost
cotton. Will our mercantile friends
make a note of this? And then they
will please add the wool crop for fifty
miles north of us.
Mr. D. S. Dixon, of Iamonee, Fla.,
was in town yesterday. And hereby
hangs a statement. Upon being in
formed that Thomasville was, at last,
going to make a supreme effort for on
independent line of railroad, and that
Col.’s McIntyre and Wright and Mr,
T. C. Mitchell had subscribed 815,000,
each, Mr. Dixon said:
"“I am willing to risk my money
where Col. AVright, Gol. McIntyre
and Mr. Mitchell are. willing to risk
their’s.” Continuing he said: “You
are authorized to put me down for a
Mr. Dixon lives eighteen miles-
from Thomasville, in the state of
Florida. Ho does not own a dollar’s
worth of property in this town. But
he does his trading here, sells his cob*
ton here, and realizes that a new road
would be worth much to him. Besides
he recognizes the fact that ’tis a safe
investment. Certninly when a gen
tleman, qnd a cool, clear headed, bus
iness man to boot, will thus come for
ward and aid tho projected’ Toad,
without owning any properly here,
surely our own citizens will not be
slow in hacking the enterprise.
The day upon which it is announced
that Thomasville has subscribed the
one hundred thousand dollars, neces
sary to build the road to Cordelc, will
be a Red Letter day for the town.
It will sound the death knell of mo
nopoly, emancipate her business men
and put the place on a foundation as
solid as the rock of Gibraltar. Speed
the day and hour.
Mr. D. J. Sheffield, whoso financial
ability is well known, and whose
investments are always of the most
solid character, takes 82,000 in tho
new roa«Y fj
AVlien Mayor Donkins, who was on
the subscription committee at
the meeting on Friday night, an
nounced that Air. J. AV. Reid, had put
down 85,000 for Mr. J. AVyinau Jones-,
of Englewood, N. J., the crowd broke
into a ringing cheer. I t would ltavo
done Mr. Jones good to have heard
that shout. Mr. Jones hasn’t forgot
ten Thomasville, and Tliomnsville
will not forget Mr. Jones.
Thomasville now appeals—and that
appeal will not lie in vain—to her
sons for her preservation and future
prosperity. Let to-morrow, Monday,
close lip the Hundred Thousand
Doi.ears necessary to give the town
ail independent railroad.
Every subscriber to the Cordelc
road, if it is only one share, will he
on the ijrniiml floor with the men who
have put in their thousands. They
will share, in proportion, in all the
profits and benefits accruing from tho
Just wait a littlo while and you will
hear something drop.
Every one is perfectly sanguine now
I'ribuuc ol Rome.
It is a fact, and a great pity, tiiat
some people are blind to their interest
when it comes lo sustaining a news
paper. They cannot understand lb c
wonderful work it does for a town in
which it is published, how it heralds
forth the advantages of its section, con
stantly voicing its needs, illustrating its
growth and advocating its interests far
from the narrow circle in which the
paper is published. They know that
it costs a dollar a year and that is all
they think of.
The most insignificant country pa
per in the state is the biggest inslitu
tion in the town where it is printed;
and notwithstanding the editor may
not himself appreciate the fact, he is
really an important factor in the growth
and developcment of the country.
The free advertisement that a news
paper gives a town in a year is worth
thousands of dollars to it; and its gen
eral value to any locality cannot be
over estimated. It should he placed
side by side with all the worthy institu
tions of its town, and given equal en
couragement w tli all of them.
A gentleman of Cleveland, O., in a
to the Morning News says: “The letter
south wants a rowing machine factory
somewhere within its borders. AVitli
its wealth of woods, iron and coal, sido
by side, machines uouhl be manufac
tured so cheaply that they could be
sold for less than any sewing ma
chine now in the market. There is a
sewing machine ninniifacfurcd in this
city which sells for 88. I am sure
that it could lie manufactured in the
south so ns to he sold for 8(1. It is in
every respect as good as any sewing
machine now in use. There arc great
possibilities in the sewing machine.
The demand for it is beyond the sup
ply, and will continue to bo for

Electric Hitters with most happy results.

fuver and jaundice, but was cured by timely

Mr. D. I. Wilcoxson, of Horse Cave, Ky.
adds a like testimony, saying. He positively
believes he would have died, had it not been
for Electric Bitter
