Cortland, N. Y., July 25, ’89.
Dear Sir:—Will you please send
me a copy of your city paper, that I
may get an idea of the business done
there before I come to stay, and
,, J. A. H.
It is with reluctance that we have to
admit that the paper will be but a poor
index of the business of Thomasville,
to the shame of its business people be
it said. In that paper the gentleman,
will sec only about twenty business
firms, besides eight professional cards,
which is the sura total, to the outside
world, of the business done in Thom
asville. This is exceeded by every
way station, almost, on the line of
the S. F. & W. R. R., that has a lit
tle newspaper, and yet, as an index
to the business of our city, our paper
has to go abroad, representing the
place as a veritable village.
In point of fact there is within the
sound of our voice almost, within eye
sight of our office, ninety-seven busi
ness firms, doing business in Thomas - -
ville, not to count numerous .smaller
stores on side streets, and manufact
uring concerns not on the main streets.
Of the sixty-nine business houses and
firms who are not represented, four-
fifths of them are amply able to, and
would be benefited in a business way,
by advertising, and probably -would
be shocked at the thought that they
were doing their business, the town,
and our paper particularly an injury
by the thoughtless and un businesslike
way they have of getting along.
Now in all candor we say to them,
they are not doing theirdutv.
Thomasville . has gotten a name
abroad ns a thriving, live city. It has
gotten that name by reason of the
gratuitous work of its newspapers,
more than anything else, and it is
time that some one else should bear
the burden, nt least in proportion to
the benefits derived. Wo dp not.wish
to appear in the attitude of begging
for patronage, but there is not a man
in Thomasville that will not admit
the importance of its newspapers. In
the name of common sense then, don’t
bank on our business capital arid en
ergy, but da your part towards mak
ing your city paper a credit to your
city. The way to do this is to have
your name appear in it. You will
find us prepared to give you liberal
rates to enable you to do so.

The experience of our fruit growers
this season, and in fact every past
season, has demonstrated the import
ance of, and necessity for, concert of
action in disposing of our crops of
melons, pears, grapes etc. Thomas
county is bringing the culture of these
articles prominently forward, and has
demonstrated that there is big money
in their cultivation; hut, unfortunate
ly, from outrageous freight charges in
some instances, heavy charges by com
mission men in others, and a want of
concert of action on the part of ship
pers, thus glutting the market and
throwing excessive quantities on the
markets, it 1ms been a rarity that any
great money has been made in the
Now it has been demonstrated that
.we can make the fruit at such cost as
to be very remunerative, if properly
sold. The means to this end would
seem to us a combination of fruit and
melon raisers in Thoinasvllln (as we
ship a great deal from here), in other
^ords, a "Fruit Exchange,” under the
management of some competent man
ould, by wire, keep himself
fully posted as to market, prices,
stock on hand, etc., and determine
the points most desirable, as to ship-
This plan has worked well in Flori
da in the growing of oranges; and it
has worked well and been the means
of saving of vast amounts of money to
the growers. Lot the exchange be
ready for business another season,
properly organized and officered, with
its Northern, Eastern and Western
agencies, and by concentration and
judicious distribution of the crops,
regulate the supply so as to bn witliin
the demand. Ample money can be
had here to handle the crops, and
there - could be no better point for the
exchange. Let our progressive fruit
raisers move in the matter this fall, so
as to be ready for active business an
other season. Our columns are open
for the discussion and furtherance of

Some of our citizens arc getting
interested in having a canning fac
tory established here. We arc glad
to see this. It would bo a big thing
for Leon county farmers. It would
give us cheaper canned fruits and

hotter prices for their fruit and veg
etables. By all means let’s have it.—
