Dr. A. I*. Taylor returned yester
day. ' He left his family, Miss Ben

Florric Pittman, on St. Vincent’s
Island, fifteen miles from Apalachico

'living on the island—it is very pleas
ant and healthy.
Rev. Win. J. Williams will preach
his last sermon, until after his vace.

and forwarded it to the Comptroller-
General, is in receipt of the following
Atlanta, Ga., July 29, 1889.
J. F. McCann, Es(j., II.-T. It. Thomas Co.:
Dear Sir—Your digest for 1889 received and
I find it made up in the neat, correct and
business-like manner which characterizes
all of your hooks.
The increase is especially gratifying, and
stamps Thomas as one of the most progress
ive and prosperous counties in the state.
W. A. WjpniT,
This is a graceful and deserved tri
bute to an able, efficient and consci-
Roll ’Em In.
Mr. D. S. Dixon, ot Dixon Bros., of
Iamonee, was in town yesterday, and
informs us than hey will have a wagon
load of cotton in next week. In a
very short time our streets will be lively
with loads ot the fleecy staple, and we
take occasion to say to our planting
friends that, while our merchants are
too modest to advertise the fact, they
will pay as much for cotton and sell
them goods as cheap as any one in
this section of country. Bring your
cotton to Thomasville.
Are We Protected ?
Editor Times-Enterprise—It is
an old ar.d just maxim that taxation
and protection should be reciprocal.
We have plenty of the first, but are we
getting much ol the protection? Our
homes are raided by burglars, while
we sleep, and no citizen lies down at
night feeling that lie is safe, or that
the protecting arms of the officers ot
the law are extended over him or his
property. Our city lathers arc doing
much in and for the town, but is not
die present need ol protection more
pressing and important than any work
they are doing? I am not finding
fault with them, but I would impress
them with the actual necessity of
speedy action in this matter. Our town
seems to lie the home of a gang, who
woik up the town and then go around
for diversion to our neighbors, but
returning to this as-the great center
and the richest ft . Id for their rase-lily.
Will not our city fathers do something
on this line, and do it quick?
Cotton Bales in Cotton Bagging.
Thomasville received her second
bale ot cotton yesterday, grown and
brought in by Mr. W W. T.inton. It
was carried to the warehouse of
Evans and MacLean, and classed strict
midling, weighed 393 lbs, and above
all, it was handsomely clothed in
substantial, clean, while cotton bag
ging. A real Georgia production,
and goes as in evidence that our far
mers, if they want to be, arc perfectly
independent of the jute bagging and
the jute swindling trust. This is the
first bale raised in Thomas county,
and we are glad to say that it comes
up to all the requirements; a full
fledged Alliance banking —all cotton —
bagging and all. Messrs Mitchell
and McIntyre, we understand, has the
cotton bagging for sale. The bale
was sold to I, Stoyerman and Bin.
at 10 1 2 cents per lb.
He Has to Explain.
Mr. James F. Evans, Clerk of the
Water Works, was around interview
ing parties who are taking water, yes
terday. About one hundred patrons
are to be seen Paying for water is a
new thing in Thomasville. .Mr. Evans
says he has to spend a great deal ol!
time with almost every one who is j
taking water, in explaining the where
fores, the whereases and so forth. It'!
wc remember, correctly, slips were
printed, and liberally distributed,
giving the various rates charged for
water some time ago. A brief study
of one of these slips, by ihosc who
are taking water, would simplify mat
ters and ?avc a good deal ol time.
Death of a Good Man,
We regret to see by the Southern
Christian Advocate, that the Rev. It.
f(. Gee, who was in the South Geor
gia Conference as the supply on the :
Mars Hill Mission in this district, died j
at his home near Faircloth port office
last week. Mr. Gee was an old con- ■
federate solder, a colonel in the late i
war, and a man who served his God |
and country faithfully to the end. 1
He Ipaves a family, of wife and sever- 1
al children, and a large circle of i
friends, as well or hjs three churches J
to mourn his death- A good man has <
gone to his reward.
She Thought It was a Burglar,
The shadows of night had fairly
closed in. True, it was early, but not
too early for Mrs. to be thinking
of burglars. Ladies think about bur
glars at glaring noon-day.
“I hear some one in the back lot,”
said the lady to her husband.
“O, it is nothing,” said the gentle
man, settling back into a comfortable
arm chair, with a copy of Time#En
terprise, which he was perusing.
“I am sure there is some one around
the house,” said the lady; “I heard
Now, every married man knows that
when his wife is "certain she has heard
some one around,” there’s no use of
arguing, and this gentleman was no
exception to the rule.
"Where’s my gun?” said the gentle
man, rising and walking across the
room. “I will soon see it there is any
“For gracious sake, don’t shoot in
here,” said the lady, as the husband
thrust a double-barreled gun through
a half open window.
"Do you want me to go out and
expose myself—perhaps get killed by
a burglar?” reproachfully replied the
gentleman, as he examined the car
tridges in his gun, to make sure they
were all right.
“O, dear, no, but I—I—I—don’t
want you to shoot right here in the
“All right, then, I’ll go out and
probably be killed. And then if it will
be any satisfaction, you can reflect on
the fact that you drove your husband
to bis death.”
With this he rushed to the door, gun
in hand,while the wife, now thoroughly
alarmed, begged him not to go.
“Stand back and let me go,” lie
said. “Let me sacrifice myself on the
family altar.” And he disappeared in
the surrounding gloom.
Five minutes later:
■•Well, if this doesn’t beat anything
I ever heard of,” said the husband, as
lie sneaked hack in the house, where
his wife was in tears, expecting to hear
a fatal shot every moment.
“Why, wliat was it? ’ asked the lady,
recovering herself at sight of her hus
••It was a neighbor driving one of
his strayed calves out of our back lot.”
And a long, deep silence ensued
Music By Moonlight,
A wave of music swept up and down
Broad street last night. The passer-by
slopped and listened, as the sounds
floated away on the silvery moon beams
and died away in the distance. Soon
quite a crowd collected in front of R.
Thomas’ drug store, where the stroll
ing minstrels, three Jnegroes and an
Italian boy were playing. All were
sorry when the musicians put up their
instruments and moved on. It was a
pleasant and unexpected breaking of
the monotony of these long summer
evenings on Broad street.
A Revival at New Ochlockoncc Church.
Rev. Mr. Williams, who has been
assisting Dr. Maiming in a series of
revival meetings at the New Ochlock-
nnoo church (Baptist ) at Duncanville,
lias letiirned. The meetings have
been largely attended and deep in
terest shown by the people. A gra
cious revival, both in and out of the
church, has been the result. On
Thursday night eleven new members
were received on a profession of faith.
Seventeen were added to the church
up to yesterday. The e will he bap
tized at 10 o’clock, near the church,
nil Sunday morning. A deep rclig
inns feeling pervades the community,
and much good is expected to follow
the earnest labors of the two ministers
who have labored so zealously in the
Alliance Meeting To-Day.
