All About Umbrellas.
A gentleman who has recently been
made the victim, a number oi t.ines,
of the umbrella taking habit, a habit
which appears to be common to all
classes, climes arid conditions in life,
requests us to write a series ol articles
during the summer on the subject of
taking umbrellas. The field is an
inviting one, and we should be glael to
lend our well known talent to the
work, would be glad to accommodate
our friend, but it would hardly be pru
dent for us to pursue that line ot thought
and argument. While wc would, at
all hazards, defend the reputation of
our subscribers lor integrity and honesty
in most things, yet, when it comes to
talking about taking umbrellas, the
chances are that wc would be treading
on the toes of a good many of our
patrons. Our friend will see, at once,
that this would place us in an awkward
and very embarrassing position.
“You can stop my paper,” Mr.Smith
would say, the first time he met us.
“I believe I will take the Bugle
Horn of Liberty, and stop the Times-
Entf.rprise,” Ilrown would say.
“It is too expensive to take more
than one papei, and as I have sub
scribed for the Iiald Knob Bladder,
you may stop my paper,” would say
And in every one of these instances
the trouble could be traced to talking
about people who take umbrellas.
No, no; wc cannot afford to attempt
to reform the world in this respect.
It would break down any country pa
per in the United States. A'ou see it
won’t do to buck against the majority
—the masses. They’ll down you every
time, if you commence criticising ibis
long established habit. A great many
think the habit is inherited—handed
down-from father to son, for successive
generations. Be this as it may, we
cannot take the chances of leclurng,
perhaps the majority of our readers,
on a habit which all tradition teaches
us lias prevailed for centuries, in fact,
since umbrellas were first introduced.
Wc should like ve.y much to reform
the world in this, as well as in some
other respects, but the job is too big,
the contract too extensive a one. True,
the press is said to be hMiower, but it
has never been known to check this
evil, though editors and newspaper
people have suffered heavily by the
habit. Suffered more, perhaps, than
others; for the reason that they always
carry the very finest silk umbrellas,
with gold beaded handles the latter,
not unlrequenlly, inlaid with diamonds
and other precious stones. 'Ilie loss
of numerous umbrellas, like those just
described, tempts us to sail into the
public, but prudence whispers “don’t,”
and so our friend will have to excuse
us, AVc’re ready and willing to tackle
hydra-beaded vice, and bad habits, in
almost any form, but we cannot, nay,
will not, attack a large portion of our
distinguished fellow-citizens. It would
be suicide. No man would be tolerated
or countenanced in any community
after making such an assault. AVe’rc
not a candidate, just yet, for universal
proscription. F.very man must con
tinue, so far as wc are concerned, to
look out tor his own umbrella. As for
passing a law on the subjective would
as soon expect the Georgia legislature
to pass a dog law. The situation is
embarrassing. The only chance to
keep even is to take some other fellow’s
umbrella. Thi sort of retaliation is
bad morals, but there are many exten
AVe again express our deep regret at
not feeling justified in complying with
(he request alluded to at the optset,
but our friend will sse how it is himself.
He has our sympathies, but that is all..
AVe frankly confess, however, that
sympathy does’nt pan out much where
a man has lost a new seven dollar
umbrella, but it is a 1 ' wc have to offer,
And in expressing this warm sympathy,
we would not be understood as reflect
ing on the gentleman—far be such
thought or intent from us—who took
tire seven dollar umbrella. He is
doubtless one 61 our subscribers.

Tho Thomasville Opera House.
The Dramatic Timqp, published in
New York, in a late issue, says:
“Two of the most prominent cities
in the South, Athens and Tliomaa-
villo, Ga., have new opera houses, and
are represented in this city by Mr. J.
Tuimunbaum. The new opera house
in Thomasville, Ga., (built last year,)
has done a very good business. Such
attractions as Jim the Penman, An
nie Pixely, AVilson’s minstrels, Ac-,
have played from $500 to $600 a
night. Thonu'sville is the great win
ter resort for Northern tourists.”
AVe arc pleased to learn from man
ager Reid that the outlook for busi
ness the coming season, is very flat
tering. With a reliable and thor
oughly posted agent and representa
tive in New York, like Mr. Tannen-
baum, the Thomasville opera house will
secure some of the best talent on the
road, and will be protected from
second class trupes. This latter con
sideration is a most important one.
It is the object and aim of the man
ager, to engage only first class plays.
And the public will, no doubt, show
their appreciation of this determina
tion by a liberal patronage.
