that Body In Cedartown-
Mistaken For a Burglar. t
Among the arrivals at the Stuart, on
Friday evening, was a young commer
cial tourist, representing a well known
Richmond firm. Some years ago, he
had spent some time in Thomasville,
and, as a consequence, had pleasant
recollections of the place. He had,
during his stay here, attended the
Presbyterian church. So, after supper,
he strolled down Jackson street, to see
how the new church looked. The
choir was practicing, and the gentle
man lingered around the new edifice,
admiring its handsome outlines in the
moonlight, and waiting for the choir to
come out, thinking he would, perhaps,
meet an acquaintance. lie did not
know that he was being watched, and
that his loitering around, alone, in that
neighborhood, had excited the suspi
cions of some ladies who lived near.
"I believe he is a burglar,” said a
lady, as she peered through the blinds
at the gentleman.
“Son,” said she, addressing one of
her hoys, ‘‘go up town and tell Mar
shal Spair or Sheriff Hurst, that there
is a burglar in this neighborhood.”
Off went the youth, and very soon
Sheriff Hurst, with a small posse, was
cautiously approaching the alleged
burglar, who was quietly puffing a
cigar on the steps ol the church.
"Come along with me,” said Mr.
Hurst; "I want to find out who you
are, and what you are doing around
It is putting it mildly, to say that
the diummer was taken aback.
"1 am all right,” said the knight of
the grip,” and will prove it to you.”
‘ All right,” said the sheriff, ‘‘come

"Certainly,” said the occupant of
the office, turning from his desk; ‘that

traveler, and only arrived in town this

‘‘0, certainly,” said Mr. Hurst. ‘‘You

around here lately, that wc arc getting

Entitled to a Chromo.
The post office official who deciph
ered the following and chucked it in
among the editor’s mail yesterday, is
entitled to a chromo:
The fellow who backed the missive
can take the cake. It is his’n- -liis'n,
by unanimous consent.
Don’t worry. It doesn’t pay.
Half the human race worry themselves
out of several years of existence. If
difficulties present themselves, don’t
dodge or worry over them, but meet
them itke a man. The worrying
business pays fewer and smaller divi
dends, than any business known.
One can be anxious without worrying.
There are occasions when not to be
anxious, would stamp one as being
callous, careless and hardened. A
man may have a note in bank, which
is rapidly maturing. He ought to be
anxious enough about it to use every
possible exertion to meet it, but it
will do him no good to worry about
it. In fact worrying will unfit him
for the work necccssary to meet his
maturing paper. The good house
wife should be anxious enough about
her household matters to keep them
in good shape, but she should not
worry herself to death about them.
Worrying will not put things to rights;
will not put the house in order, or
keep Willie out ol mischief.
Don’t worry: it doesn’t pay.
One should be sufficiently anxious
about their soul’s salvation, to make
their ‘‘calling and election sure.”
But many worry themselves unnecessa
rily about getting to heaven. A wor
ried Christian has a mighty poor time
on earth ; and it is doubtful if they
will quit the old habit when they get
to heaven. 9 hey will be asking
themselves: "Can this happiness
last? Is it real ? Don't worry, then,
about getting to heaven; or about
what you’ll do when you get there.
It will be all right: depend upon that.
An old woman, wlio had bad her full
share of trouble and work on earth,
and who was a great smoker, said :
‘‘I expect, when getting to heaven,
to just nit down, told my hands, do
nothin", lest, and smoke my pipe the
Now that old woman was a philoso
pher, in her way. She was not weir
Tying about getting to heaven. Hav
ing lead a pure Christian life, she felt
sure of being saved. She didn't wor-
rv about the character and quality of
the wings to be given her, or the text
ure of the while robe awaiting her
None of these bothered her. She had
made up her mind to rest and smoke,
and the picture of happiness was com
plete. She didn’t worry.
Don’t worry; it doesn’t pay.
In contradistinction to this case, is
that of the old maid who, upon an
occasion, was found in tears.
"What's the matter?” inquired a
"I was just thinking” said the wo
man, "il I was to marry and have a
little girl, and she was to fall into a
kettle of hot soap, and have her eyes
burned out, what an awful calamity
it would be” ? And with a boo—boo
—she wept afresh at the possibility
of such a catastropiic. The moral

A FINE SHOWING.
Thomas County in the March of Progress.
It is gratifying to us to note that
Georgia is rapidly forging ahead in
all departments of industry and mate
rial developments, and nothing shows
this more positively and satisfactorily
than the tax returns of her people,
for it is proverbial for people to give
in their taxes nt as low a rate as the
receiver will allow. AVe noted a few
days ago that Bibb county had in
creased her taxable resources about
§1,000,000, and now Fulton shows up
with §ft,000,000. This put us to in
vestigating what ourpiney woods coun
ty was doing; and it must bo recol
lected we arc but as a village compar
ed to Fulton and Bibb. Neverthe
less, we believe we have made as
rapid strides, comparatively, as these
two counties. Looking over our tax
digest yesterday, through the kind
ness of our efficient tax receiver and
collector, we find that Thomas county
has increased her taxable property in
the past year over a thirdoi a million
dollars, or to be accurate, S3ftf>,781.
This iuereasc has been a healthy and
The difference made in the returns
from Ochlockonce will lie accounted
for by reason of the fact that this
year the new district of .Spence has
been taken from Ochlockonce, and
hence in the averaging up, Ochkeko-
ncc and Spence go together. The
following arc the returns as made on
the digest by districts :

'The above is a fluttering showing
for our county, and is one that we can
reasonably expect to pattern after,
year after year, as time rolls on. Wo
have just begun to grow, but we ex
pect to put oft our swaddling clothes,
and, as a recent bill in the Legislature
indicates, become a city. It goes
without saying that we have all the
material and advantages necessary to
become a city, save those which we
are now reaching out for. Another
railroad, and.Thomasville will make
rapid strides, and tliis she will have
at no distant day.
