Situated as Thomasvllle Is, geo
graphically, she ought to receive a
liberal share of patronage for both of

Middle and Eastern Florida.
AVithout intending to dictate to

Times-Exterpiiise suggests that in
this age, patronage of any sort goes
where it is invited, and to such places
as seek it. A little judicious adver

Freight Charges on Pears.
The Ti.itEs-ExTer:c 1:1 sf. has heard
considerable complaint from pear
shippers on the score of excessive
freight 011 pears. The charges on a
car load of 600 crates to Now York
by rail is $500, approximately, and it
is safe to say that this enormous
charge will strike the average man as
being out of all reason, and it is
equally safe to say that if the trans
portation companies insist on kecpiiif
it up they will crush out the disposi
tion to ship by the all rail route, rath
er than by steamer, as heretofore.
The Ocean Steamship Company, in
conjunction with the S., F. & AY. lty.,
will deliver crates In eastern cities for
30 cents, against 85 charged by the

The Bank of Thomasvillc.
The semi-annual statement of this

made is a very gratifying one to the
stocklioideas, and reflects great credit
on the officers that have had its busi

$130,103.27, is especially good for this
season of the year, and shows that our

that they are content to trust it with

eight hundred crates of pears yester

put on and even with that help it has
been found insufficient and another

A number ol gentlemen were stand

watching the shipments of green pears
being made. One ot them suggested
that the growers ought to send the
trees along with the fruit, lor the latter
was of too tender an age to be separ
ated from its parent. And it might
be added that if the shipments of
green pears continues, the trees and
all future crops will be worthless, for
the reputation of both will be gone.

other parties may occupy the territory;
and then that such a parly would

that Thomasville could not control
