THOMASV1LLE, GEORGIA, WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY 3; !8B9. tf 4 0 E I !> 5' ID V fel ► 4 r< o n 9) 4 H M 4 91 \3 » Local Matters. The humblest citizen of the town is interested in the new road. Do all your shopping to-day; the stoics will he closed on the 4th" The canvassing committee have been averaging about 82,000 per day. Pretty good work, that. To the committee: Keep up the fight. Don’t get discouraged. Suc cess will crown your efforts in the end. The sanitary condition of Thomas- ville this summer is of the first impor tance. Keep the town clean nnd healthy. A good crowd would go over to Ilainbridge on the 4th if an excursion train would make the trip to and from our neighboriug city that day. There is a tide in the affair; of a town—as well as of men—which, il taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; but which, neglected, &c.—See Shakespeare. The birds ordered by the Thomas- ville Gun Club have come, and the boys will once more try their hands at the traps. They are getting in trim for another match with the Bos ton team. We understand that after paying all incidental expenses of getting up “A Trial by Jury” quite a neat sum was turned over to Miss Mary Laurie, the faithful Principal of the Music Department of the South Georgia College. A bevy of railroad men, John L. Brown, of the Chattanooga, Rome & Columbus, Robinson Wallace, ot the L. & N. R. R., and .perhaps others, went up the Albany branch yesterday to look after melon shipments. These gentlemen say this wif be the week of the heaviest shipments of the season. The Times-Enterprise offers a cheap ehromo to the croaker or kicker who can advance one single well grounded argument against every cit izen of Thomasville, who possibly can, subscribing to the stock of a new rail road, A postage stamp should be enclosed as an evidence of good faith, as well as ot the liberality of the objector. Will Olose To-Morrow. The following agreement entered into by the merchants shows that they are not deficient in a feeling of vener ation for the “Glorious 4th.” In an cient days the 4th was universally observed in the south, and the custom ought to be re-instated: Thomasvillk, Ga„ July 1, 1880. Wo, the undersigned merchants Thom- asvillc, agree to dote our places of business on the 4th of July, the same being a Nation al Holiday.

Moore & Williams, Tobacco, its use and abuse, by Rev. J. B. Wight, of the South Georgin Conference. The above is the title of a very readable nnd interesting volume, laid on our table by Miss Addic McClellan, with the compliments of the author. It treats of the use and abuse of to bacco in a very fair manner, and its perusal would be of incalculable value to any one addicted, or inclined to be, to the use of tobacco, if they would give heed to the facts contained therein. Call at Miss Addic McClel lan's and get a copy and read it, or give it to your boy. - Clean up—We Mean the City. The continued rains have created several “disturbing elements” that stand in wait to offend the olfactory senses, and through them the health of those that arc abroad after night fall. There arc scvcial low places on Broad street that ought to be filled, and some of the cellars in town arc not ns fragrant as they might he. Extra diligence at this season will be a good policy. ' Clean up. Ho Dcolincs. Messrs C. (S'. Boiulurant,T. N. Hopkins and J. H. Merrill, Committee on prize Declamation and Debate in recent com mencement of Sotdfi'Gcorgia College, Gentlemen - —I beg to acknowledge die compliment, and tender sincere thanks to those who, through you, made the request that I furnish to the Times Enterprise, for publication, a copy of my speech delivered in the debate on that occasion.

Mai Lean, Clerk. Thomasville was never healthier than now. Keep her so. We rise to remark that Broad street’s concrete pavements should he pushed to completion. Only one or two small gaps remain to he filled. Thomasville cannot afford to let the present opportunity pass to get a new outlet. It is in sight. One hundred thousand dollars will insure the roa’d to Cordele. Lieutenant Wilder put t^e Guards through night before last. The boys are learning to play soldier right along. The interests of Thomas county will be safe in the hands of her two able representatives in the legislature, during the session of that body this summer. And then there’s Charley Hansel). He makes a good standing members. Charley always keeps au eye on everything pertaining to the interests of this section. It needs only a casual glance at the map, only a brief scanning of the roads already built, and those which arc licing built and projected, to con vince the dullest, that Thomasville is being side tracked on every hand. Will she fight her way out? That’s the question. Thomasville is in earnest about the new road. Railroad Gossip. The Chattanooga, Rome aud Col umbus system is still growing. President J. D. Williamson, of the Chattanooga, Home and Columbus railroad, was in the city yesterday. When asked about the develop ment of the scheme for the extension of his road in Georgia, he said:' : . “I can’t tell you anything yet. The matter is not arranged, and we nre all hound to secrecy. There is a great deal of road going to be built, but just where it will he built is net set tled. Two things nre certain-—the Chattanooga, Rome and Columbus system is going to the coast, and it is going to Florida.” “You remember that two years ago you called attention to__the fact that the Chattanooga, Rome and Colum bus, with the Cincinnati Southern, made a direct north and south line from Ciucinnatti to the gulf coast? “Yes; to Quincy, Florida,” “Will you build direct fom Carroll ton to Columbus, and connect with the Columbus Southern and the ex tension to Quincy, or will you build from Carrollton to Warm Springs, run into Columbus over the Georgia Midland and extend your main line on from Warm Springs to Cordele aud Savannah? “1 can’t tell yet, exactly, by what routes we will go, hut we will have an entrance into every important city in Georgia.”—Constitution. Split the difference and come by way of Thomasville, The Population ofthe United States. The present estimated population of the United States is 64,000,000. The rate of increase, exclusive of im migration, is estimated at 1.8 percent, per ainfuiu—about 100,000 a month. By immigration the increase of popu lation averages over 48,000 a month, or over a half a million yearly. The aggregate annual growth from both causes will not fall much short of a million aud three-quarters. The esti mated foreign population is not far below 14,000,000.—Scientific Ameri can. Fourteen millions of foreigners! That is about four times the popula tion of tin’s country, when the war of independancc was fought. And the natives stand at a round fifty mill ions. Verily this is a growing coun try. Minneapolis, Minn., June 28.— The Journal’s Rushford (Minn.) spe cial says: “A combined cyclone, wa terspout and hail storm passed from ono to five miles oast of boro last night, destroyiug everything in its path. A belt two miles wide in the pathway of the storm, and forty miles in length is absolutely laid waste, trees being as bare of leaves as in mid winter.
