VOL 1-NO 51. 4 P 0 i i « H B H V 91 » Local Matters. The Kolb Gem is going forward— and so are the LeConte pears. A stray liorse with saddle on was picked up in East End Tuesday night. The owner appeared and found him yesterday morning. The Gun Club still increases in number of members. Mr. Rernur McIntyre is the latest acquisition. He joined in the shoot Tuesday afternoon, and did some good work. 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 terday. . 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 tonight. 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- ing seining in Linton and Sheldon lakes without permission of owners, becomes a law, as it undoubtedly will, these splendid fishing waters will be come what they oncejjwcre full of tho finny tribe. Big Yield. 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. A Suggestion. 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. Choice Fruits. 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- Masters Charlton and.

The board of directors of the Library Association have ordered the following magazines: Harper’s, Scribner’s, Century, Ec lectic, Forum, Atlantic Monthly, North American Review, Sunday Magazine, Frank Leslie’s Popular Monthly, Lippincott, St. Nicholas and Youth’s Companion. The committee in charge of hooks and periodicals placed the order for these magazines last spring. The members of the association will now have access to the best magazine liter ature of tho age. 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 it.—Ex. Prize-fighting Rules. 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 to many: 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- haired gang. 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 foundation. 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. Tis said that the Shah of Persia is piping hot about criticisms on his hog gish manners, which have appeared m American newspapers.
