Mr. C. W, Wiggins’ new residence in Flctchcrvillc is nearing comple tion. The crossing on lower Broad street, from .Smith Avenue, is a timely im provement. ' Mr. George McRee, the extensive Lowndes county planter, was in town yesterday. Rev. E. If. MeGehce ia in town. Ho is always a welcome visitor in ThomasviHe. Mrs. T. J.

As we are determined not to pack up any summer stock at all, provided I I/lokmit for vagrants. The law agiynst this class should he rigidly en forced. They arc a menace to any place or people. We understand that twenty con verts were baptized by Dr. Manning, pastor of New Ochlockonce church, on Sunday. Capt. and Mrs. Hammond, and Master Walter, left on Sunday night for Lake George, New York, where they will spend some time. Tax Returns. As will be seen by the statistics, the showing for old Thomas is a good one. Her growth is steady and sure. While the greatest increase in values lms been In the towns, yet the country shows a healthy increase in values. This is one of the most hopeful signs ol the future. The time is coming, and it is near at hand, when country property will be rated at its true in trinsic value. It lms not touched that point yet. But it will. A man who cannot make a living in Thomas county, cannot make a living any where. It is gratifying to note the increased values of property owned by colored people. They now own something over a quarter of a million dollars worth of property in this county. This is a most creditable exhibit, and shows that, while, there are many worthless negroes ( as there are whites, also), there i3 ( at the same time, a thrifty, well-to-do class of colored people in Thomas county, who are industrious and trying to make an honest living. And they arc doing it. * Upon the whole, we may congratu late both whites and blacks upon the large increase of taxable property in the county. It speaks volumes for the future of the grand old county of Thomas. Thirty-five Years. “Are you going to take a vacation,” the reporter asked the Rev. Mr. MacDoncll, yesterday. “No, sir. My health is always belter in summer than at any other season, and, consequently,-I am aide to attend to my duties during the summer months as well as at any other season,” replied the gentleman. Continuing, Mr. MacDoncll said: “I have bocn an active preaclicfaml pastor for thirty-five years, and only once, during that time, have T bad a summer vacation. In the summer of 1871, I went to New York and was absent from my charge a month. In my experience during these long years, I have frequently, when other pastors were absent, performed the pastoral work of four or five churches.” And the gentleman, with his robust, vigorous appearance, looked as if he were equal to the task of doing the pastoral work ol three or four churches now. LOW PRICES will move what we have left, I You will - positively save money, buying ot us all the dry goods you ; need during the remainder of “the heated term.” Favor us with a call. ' Very respectfully, | Several old offenders were lip before Mayor pro tern. Merrill, yesterday morning. The aggregate lines amounted to about thirty dollars. To-Night. The.first session ol the Distrid Sun day School Convention will he held in Rostou to-night. A large delega tion is expected. The exercises will continue to morrow and to morrow night. Mr. T. J. Ball was elected, on Sunday, as the delegate from the Methodist Sunday School here, with Mr. S. L. Hayes as alternate. All pastors and superintendents of Sunday Schools arc ex officio members ot the convention. It is non-sectarian, em bracing all orthodox denominations. The Electric Light. Among the guests registered at the Whiddon yesterday, were G. M. Chamberlain and wife, Atlanta, (ia. Mr. Chamberlain is liere for the pur pose of putting the machinery in shape to start the pioposcd electric plant. As all the material is hero, it will not take long to have things in shape to turn on the fluid. Thonias- villc will soon have—what she has long wanted and needed— electric lights, both the are and incandescent. First Test in Georgia. The medical world is, just now, very much interested in the claim set up by Dr. Brown-Sequard, the famous Paris physician, that lie has discovered a wonderful elixir. Many tests arc being made in this country and in Europe, of the new discovery. Dr. Hammond and other eminent Ameri can physicians assert that there is virtue in the new elixir. Dr. A. P. Taylor made a test of it on Sunday morning, on a patient who lias been suffering some time from partial par alysis. We have not learned the result. Dr. Taylor was doubtless the first physician in Georgia, if not in the south, to test the new remedy. A New Warehouse. The material is being placed on the ground for the erection of Messrs. West & Fearn’s large grain warehouse, if will he thirty by one hundred and fifty feet, and he built of corrugated iron. The warehouse will be located on the cast side of the railroad tracks, near the road, between Fletcher and Lee streets. Work has commenced on a side track which will be used for loading and unloading merchandise without the intervention of drays. Messrs. West it Fearn are pushing young business men. To-Night. The first session of the district Sun day - school convention, will be hold at Boston to-night. A large delegation is expected. The exercises will con tinue to-morrow and to-morrow night. Mr. T. ,T. Ball was elected on Sunday as the delegate from the Methodist Sunday school here, with Mr. S. L. Hayes as alternate. All pastors and superintendents of Sunday schools are ex-ofiieio members of the convention. It is non-sectarian, em bracing all orthodox denominations. The Progress of Our Colored Population. Last year the colored tax payers of the town district returned $105,098 worth of town property. This year they return $164,063 worth. This demonstrates that wc have.a colored population who arc learning the ne cessity and importance of accumulate iny property. Every one is glad to sec this disposition on their part The man, white or colored, who owns property, makes a better citizen. The talk of the negroes engaging in a general exodus, colonizing themselves somewhere, is folly. They are better off right here, and doing better here, than they ever will any where else. They arc among those whounderstand them and who wish them well, among people who are interested in their future welfare and prosperity ; among people who arc competent to legislate foi them, legislate for them belter than they can for themselves. The negro will never find a better home or people to live among, than in the South, and with Southern people. Mr. B. A. Bass believes in the hi- turc of farming lands in the South. Ho recently - bought the famous Brad ley place, located on the borders of the Miccosukie lake, from Mr. John L. Finn. The place contains 25-100 acres, and is classed among the richest farming lands of this section. H. Wo'fl & Bro. Leaders of Styles and Low Prices. 109 & 111 BltOAD ST Dr. G’assady has returned from his visit to Alabama. lie reports a pleasant time. Ho did not bring Mrs, Oassady back with him. An unusually large congregation filled the Baptist church to over flowing on Sunday night. After an able sermon by the pastor, Rev. Mr, Williams, the impressive ordinance ofbaptism was administered to two young ladies. Did you know that the ThomasviHe district rclurns a round quarter of a million more property, this year than last; to be more accurate $246,551, i Thats a healthy showing. And these are voluntary returns made by the owners of property. If the actual in crease in values had been put down the amount would no doubt be doub led. Mr. B. D. Singletary brought in the first stalk of sugar cane of the season, to the Times-Entehpkisk yes terday morning. It had thirteen joints. Mr. Singletary says that it was cut from ;i ten acre field of the same height. Visions of “Jack Frost” and sugar boilings, were produced by this early cane. Riding by Moonlight. That was a gay and pleasant horse back party on Friday night. They rude out by Col. McIntyre-’?, Mr. Masury’s magnificent country place, and on to Winnton, where a delight ful serenade took place. Mr. Winn, in the absence of Mrs, Winn, invited the party in, when they were enter tained in royal style. Some seven or eight couples of ladies and gentle men were in the party. The pleasures of the ride were so much enjoyed that ’tis probable another similar parly will be made up this week. Special attention is called to the advertisement of a six room, two story house, conveniently located, for real. It is in a desirable neighborhood and can be rented at a bargain. Call at this office. There were two bli- dine flashes of lightning about noon yesterday. Every one thought the lightning struck in a few feet of them No damage was done, so far as wc could learn, beyond a few cases of fright. Mr. George Clewis has in his pos session an old knife engraved with the date ot Aug 20 1857. It is no doubt the largest pocket knife iti the city, its length being a fraction under fifteen inches long. It was found in the Ochlockonce river swamp. Time and rust have played their part with the blade, and it would be a more effec tive weapon as a club, than to cut with. The knife perhaps, has a his tory ; Who knows ? See notice of a strayed pointer dog. Mr. J. C. f’arnell will pay a lair re. ward for his recovery. Notion. Wc have been requested to call a meeting of the Ladies Auxiliary So ciety of the Presbyterian church, at the rooms of the library association, at 5 o’clock, on Wednesday afternoon. A. prompt and full attendance is re quested as business of importance is to be transacted. An Editor’s Duties. Wc ajxilogizc for mistakes made in all former issues, and say they were inexcusable, as all an editor has to do is to hunt news, and clean the rollers, and set type, and sweep the floor, and pen short items, aud fold papers, ami write wrappers, and make the paste, and mail the papers, and distribute the type, and talk to visitors, and carry water, and saw wood, and read the proofs, and correct mistakes, and hunt the shears to write editorials, and dodge the bills, and dim delin quents, and take cussing? from the whole force, aud tell our subscribers that we need money. We say that wc have no business to make mistakes while attending to these little matters aud getting our living on gopher-tail soup flavored with imagination, and wear old shoes and no collar, and a patch on our pants, and obliged to turn a smiling countenance to the man who tells us that our paper isn’t worth 81 anyhow, and that he could make a better one with bis eyes shut. —Sauk Rapid Sentinel.
