Letter From Tate Springs.
Dear Ti.mes-Enterprise: After
leaving Thomasvillc on the morning
of the first, I joined my family at Ma
rietta. where they were in waiting for
the continuance of our journey to this
point. We reached here yesterday at
6 p. ni., having broken the monotony
of the railroad trip by spending an af-
noon and night at Chattanooga with
our friend and former townsman, J.M.
Hardaway. It will be a pleasure to
John’s old friends to know that be is
fast forging to front rank of bust-
tUss in his adopted borne. The
time is in the near future when not
only Thomasville, but Chattanooga,
will be proud of him. He is certainly
a successful man.
While at Chattanooga we visited the
summit of Lookout mountain over the
new railroad. This road runs back
and forth along the side of the mount
ain, rising higher until the very top is
reached. The engines are large and
pow-crful and take up Pom one to three
coaches at a time at the rate of sixteen
miles an hour. It rAninds us of the
ladder of fame and fortune. It is a
struggle to climb it, but even after the
top rung is reached, how easy to come
Upon reaching Morristown we were
met by Clem Tomlinson’s commodious
hacks. They took us to the spring, a
distance of eleven miles, over the best
mountain road we ever saw, with such
ease and even gait that it was really
pleasant rather than tiresome, as most
persons expect it to be. Throughout
the whole distance our attention is so
attracted by the magnificent mountain
views and valley scenes that we lost
sight of our mode of conveyance and
are lost in contemplation of the grand-
uer of nature.
Long before wjj reach the spring,
perhaps a mile distant,we catch glimp
ses of the new hotel. Inadvertently
we attempt to urge forward the strong
fat mules, which have thus far proven
themselves worthy of trust in every
way. A feeling of Satisfaction comes
over you; you know that within the
portals of so modern a structure you
must find all that is necessary for the
gratification of your soul’s inmost
longings. The hotel is reached through
a beautiful, shadowy, grass-carpctcd
lawn, and our anticipations are real
The house is on an eminence in this
pretty lawn of clover and blue grass.
It is built on the order of many we
have seen at the watering places on
the Jersey coast and is among the
prelticst of them all. It has, in con
nection with the numerous pleasant I
cottages and the old hotel, a capacity
of about five hundred guests.
The climate seems all that could be
wished for; this morning it is too cool
for summer dress and the air is brac
ing and balrny. Of course I cannot
yet speak from experience of the wa
ter, but on every hand comes glowing
accounts ot its remarkable efficacy.
This section affords as # good a cli
mate as any for those sickened in lo
calities of less altitude, but the propri
etor adopts that proper method of
“operating on facts.” He claims most
efficacy for the water in dy^epsia and
only recommends it for those cases in
which years of actual trial have proven
its virtue. A gentleman in Atlanta
who has long watched the effects of
the water, said to me; “I do not be
lieve any one could visit Tate Spring
without benefit. If the healthiest man
alive would go there he would im

A New Book.
* Scraps of Songs, and Southern
Scenes” is the title of a volume just
issued by Montgomery M. Folsom.
There are some gems in it. Mr. Fol
som has captivated the literary world
with his songs and sketches. There is
a touch of nature in them, a vividness
and rythm about them which places
him among the foremost writers in the
south. The author is a wire grass
product, and wc hope his new volume
will find a ready sale. It deserves it.
Mr. James Holloway, a cousin of
the author, has the agency, and would
be pleased to introduce the work
throughout this section.
