THOMASVILLE, GEORGIA, THURSDAY MORNING, JULY 11, !8S5)
Dr. T. M. McIntosh is now in New
York, having returned there from the
meeting of the America^ Medical As
sociation which convened at New
Port, two weeks ago.
Our old friend, Mr. James Nesmith,
remembers ‘‘ye scribe” with some fine
samples of horse apples. Mr. Nesmith
is not only a successful farmer, but he
grows a variety ot excellent fruits.
Whatever may be the result of the
railroad movement, or whether cotton
brings a good price, it is.absolutely
essential fhat Thomasville be kept in
thoroughly good sanitary condition.
Messrs. Snodgrass & Smith have
their whole force at work making pear
crates, and yet they find it impossible
to keep ahead of the demand. They
made a large shipment to Albany yes
Quite a number will go down this
morning to the big ©hncnnvillc picnic.
They will return this afternoon.
P, S. Doctors should, see that their
door bells are in good working order
trip by themselves, which goes to
show that Thomas county boys learn
to make their own way casly in life.
The road machine will be used to
fill in tho trenches in which the wa
ter mains along Smith Avenue have
been laid. The machine will do the
work of many hands in such emergen
cies. The mains arc now down the
whole length of Smith Avenue.
Mr. S. Richey returned yesterday
from New Orleans, where he went to
see tho Sullivan-Kilrain fight. Ho
had a place in tho inner ring, and
saw the fight trom opening to finish.
He says it was a fair and square fight,
and that tho best man won.
If tho bill recently introduced by
Hon. A. T. MacIntyre, Jr., forbid-

Mr. J. N. Bullock, one of the
sturdy farmers of Ochlockonee dis
trict, grew ten bushels of fine peaches
on one tree this season. He was in
town selling them yesterday. Of a
truth the South has never known such
a year for all kinds of fruits.
From the Land of the Puritans.
Miss Fannie C. Hopkins has pre
sented the museum department of the
Thomasville Library Associetion, part
of a shingle that was placed on a
house in Pembroke, Mass., in 1628—
two hundred and sixty-one years ago.
The house is the oldest in New En
gland, and despite the ravages of
time, tho shingle is in a remarkable
state of preservation.
Meets in Rome.
The Georgia state council of the
American Legion of Honor meets in
Rome, 17th inst. The Thomasville
Lodge will be represented by Mr. C.
H. Williams, and Mr. H. Wise, with
Mr. L. H. Jergcr as alternate for Mr.
Wise. Tho Thomasville delegation
will leave Sunday or Monday.
Capt. Tom Burney, who obtained
the information from Mr. Martin, a
thoroughly practical fruit grower of
Cuthbert, gave a Times-Enteri-rise
reporter a suggestion of a remedy, or
rather preventive of blight among
pear trees. The plan is to trim the
trees back as soon as the first crop of
fruit is gathered, which prevents a
second crop the same year. It is
well known that the LcContc almost
uniformly puts on a second crop of
fruit; this fruit is worthless, and ex
hausts the trees to such an extent that
it falls an easy victim to disease.
Mr. H. H. Sanford, of Dixie Nur
sery, has left, at the Times-Enter-
prise office some fine specimens of
the Kelsey and Japan plums and the
honey peach. Mr. Sanford lits done
a great deal of service to the fruit
growers of South Georgia, by the in
troduction rtf valuable new fruits.
Dixie Nursery is fully stocked with
all the choicest varieties of fruits that
grow in this section.
A Good Scheme.
Jacksonville, Fla., July 5.—A
number ot prominent citizens met at
the board of trade rooms-this after
noon to discuss the starting of a cot
ton factory in the near ffreurc. The
meeting was addressed by Oswald
Wilson, president of the farmer s al
liance. A committee of five was. ap
pointed to investigate the feasibility
of the scheme.
Mr. Oswald Wilson organized the
first Farmers’ Alliance club in Thomas
county, and is well known here.
Would it not be a good plan for
the Alliance men of south Gcorgin to
start a cotton factory? It would dis-

Too Many Lawyers.
In tho United States there arc 70,-
000 lawyers, about one lawyer to
every 900 inhabitants. In- France
there is only one lawyer to over 6,000
people. In Germany the proportion
is about tho same as in France.
Mr. David Dudley Field, now past
80 years old, is of opinion that many
of the disreputable practices nlleged
against lawyers are due to the fact
that the profession is overcrowded.
They must do things not strictly in
the line of professional honor, quit
the profession or starve. There arc
so many of them that competition has
given rise to the practice of soliciting
business. Law offices often, now, have
their regular professional drummers,
like hotels or railway lines. In case
of scandalous stories getting into pub
lication about difficulties between
married people, these drummers have
been known to call on the injured
husband or wife and offer to obtain a
divorce with neatness and dispatch,
Mr. Field says the lawyer who so
licits divorce cases should be treated
as an enemy of the human race. An
other deplorable practice is that of di
viding results with a client.
Tho great number of lawyers does
not facilitate law business by any
means. There arc too many courts
as well as too many lawyers. Liti
gants can appeal and keep appealing
till a case is dragged out like that of
Myra Clarke Gaines, for fifty-five
years. The whole machinery of the
law is so heavy and cumbersome that
there is safety only in keeping out of
The general interest recently shown
in the Sullivan-Kilrain mill, fought
in Mississippi, on Monday, will make
the following rules, under which the
battle was fought, interesting reading
The battle was fought under. the
London Prize rules, and the initiated
may not know that thcro are twenty-
eight of them and that they provide
that the men must fight on the turf,
the door of mother earth affording
better and more satisfactory footing
for combatants than any man can
devise. Though tho place where
they fight is called a ring, the rules
require that it shall bo twenty-four
feet square and outlined with eight
stakes, around which is passed a rope,
and that in the centre of the ring is
drawn a mark which is called a
scratch; and each man shall have two
seconds and a bottle holder. It is
these seconds who toss up for position,
and tlic men take their places in the
diagonally opposite corners. There
are two umpires and a referee, who,
by the way, like all umpires and
referees, invariably succeed iu getting
themselves heartily disliked by both
parties before the affair is over. These
rules also provide that fighting hoots
shall have three spikes only in them,
two on tile sole and ouo in the heel,
and if the pugilist is caught trying to
arm his feet with any more offensive
weapons he shall promptly forfeit the
stakes. After the last grand hand
shaking is over everybody except tho
principals shall retire from tho ring,
and on no account are they allowed
back thcro again until the end of the
first round. When the first round is
over tho seconds rush in, sponge off
tlicir man and afford him watever aid,
comfort and assistance is required, for
they have only thirty seconds to do it
in, at the end of which time the refer
ee calls out “Time” and each princi
pal lias £o walk to his own corner un
aided. These rulqs arc very severe
on any jockeying, and the mau who
attempts it gets Tiimself or his princi
pal into t-roublo, and the other side
gets the favorable decision. No but
ting of heads, kicking, gouging or
scratching is allowed, and a man may
not hit his adversary below the waist
or when lie is down. In case of inter
ference from the police or any acci
dent the fight must bo fought out dur
ing the wotk, or else the whole thing
is drawn and all bets are off. A man
is expected to depend entirely upon
himself. He is watched very closely
to see that he doesn’t carry any hard
substance in his hand or that he docs
not use the ropes or stakes to injure
his adversary with, after he lias driven
him into a corner. The greatest dif
ficulty to be guarded against in all
these prize fights is the ugly temper
of the toughs who make up the au
dience. If the friends of one of the
principals predominate iu the crowd
they arc more than likely, if they find
the game going against their favorite,
to stop tile whole thing by breaking
through the ropes and falling upon
the victor. Of course the police can
not be on hand to keep iu order a
crowd witnessing a contest that is
forbidden by law. This has been the
result so often that every effort is
made to keep the whole thing dark,
not only from fear of police, hut a
still greater fear of the most enthusi
astic admirers of the sport—the short-
Mrs. Pickett Not to Be Married.
Washington, July 4.—The publish
ed statement that Mrs. George K.
Pickett, widow of General Pickett, will
be married to General James C. Lynch,
of Philadelphia, next fall, was without
authority or consultation with the
interested parties, and both the per
sons named authorize the statement
thatitis utterly untrue and without
General Lynch says that he nevor
made any such statement to any
friend of his, nor did he state anything
to any friend of his which might he so
construed. Mrs. Pickett’s well known
devotion to the memory of her husband
and refusal to entertain offers ot mar
riage preclude the probability of there
being any truth in the report connect
ed with General Lynch.
