Sheriff Hurst, who is always ou the
alert for old offenders, succeeded in
bagging one of the excursionists yes
terday, who was wanted to answer to
a true bill found by the grand jury
several years ago. Minnie Davis was
the woman’s name, and she was
charged with stealing a pistol. Mr.
Hurst arrested her and placed her in
jail, and if she came with any inten
tion of “dimin’ de golden stairs,” she
evidently thinks now the whole thing
was a failure.
They Hit ’em Hard.
The “Orphan Boys” base hall club,
of Thomasville, laid out the “Heavy
Hitters,” ot WalthourVille, in a match
game yesterday afternoon. The score
stood .10 to 1. The Thomasville hoys
hit the “Heavy Hitters” hard.
Just for One Day.

yesterday afternoon, observing • the
great throng of happy colored people,
all in holiday attire, and happier than
the days arc long, a printer who was
making the types click, click click,
“I would-give twenty five dollars to

click, click, of the types went on, while
the notes of a brass brand, floated in
at an open window, and the notes ol

around the corner from a fife, to which

“I'V God, if dein niggers hnin’t got

course hnd'bccn cut short at “Baker.”
“No they lmin’t,” said another, who
had mastered the blue-back spelling

And the old man marched otf, look

An interesting article will appear^writ
ten by a gentleman who hits been and is
still interested in a statement by Mr.
Grady in a recent address,to the effect
that "the farmers of Gtorgia were
growing poorer”. It will he remember
ed that the late Alexander II. Steph
ens entertained these same views, also.
The gentleman has selected fifty names,
at random, front nmong the average
farmers of Thomas county, aud will
compare their tax returns of 1879
with those ot 1889; thus demonstrat
ing whether farmers arc going back
ward or forward. No reference to
the tax hooks was made until after
the names were selected. .So they
were not selected with a view of either
proving or disproving the position of
Mr. Grady. What may he demon
strated by the camparison of the status
of Thomas county farmers, in 1879
and-1889, will, in a great measure,
apply to the whole state.
They Were Here-
Following the fast mail, yesterday,
which was thirty minutes late, was the
big colored excursion from Liberty
county, and intermediate points.
There was considerable curiosity
among our colored population to see
the colored contingent from Liberty.
The reports of the big religious craze
among those people had whetted the
curiosity of the intelligent colored
people of Thomasville, so that many
of the latter were on the streets to
see the excursionists. These latter
marched up from the depot to the
notts of a brass band. Broad street
presented a lively scene, as the strang
ers straggled up Jackson, some taking
the side walks, others the middle of
the street, filing right and left, when
the principal thoroughfare was reach
ed. Soon more music, away down
toward the depot, was heard. Grad
ually the notes grew more distinct, and
a few moments later the steady rattle
of the drum and the shrill notes of the
file were borne forward over the
surging sea of heads, and “The Girl
I Left Behind Me” fell upon a thousand
listening ears. And with the music
came the “Phcenix Riflemen” of Val
dosta. They were in neat uniforms
and presented quite a handsome ap
pearance. Their drilling and move
ments were very good. They would
not be considered as formidable Iocs,
in either attack or defense, as they
carried only wooden guns.
While a good many were in the
crowd from Liberty, more hailed from
along the line. The sexes appeared
to be about equally divided. The
crowd was well dressed, and so far as
we have learned, very orderly. Every
ont appeared to enjoy strolling around
in a town whose massive brick blocks
and great hotels was a revelation.
Large numbers repaired to the city
hall, where dancing was indulged in.
Several of the Liberty county negroes
were twitted by their colored brethren
here, about the day, the 16th, having
been set apart lor their ascension to
"Go ’way, nigger; you knows I don’t
h’leve no such thing,” said one ol them,
to a town darkey, who asked him if lie
was “on his way to heaven.”
'I he party had a good lime, and
every one here, white and black, were
glad to sec them enjoying .themselves.
If there is any one thing (except a
watcrnullion, perhaps), which the av
erage darkey enjoys more than another,
it is a "’scursion.”
•The parly returned at 6 o'clock.
Wc had a pleasant interview with
Mr. D. B. I’axton, of the extensive
milling firm of Paxton & Maddox, of
neav Clinch Haven, Clinch county, in
this State, the other day.
Mr. Paxton wns nt one time a citi
zen ot tills place, and he lias branched
out considerably. He informs us
that his firm owns 80,000 acres of the
finest lands in that section of country,
and have enough saw timber to last
them in perpetuity; enough now on
the ground to keep sawing on for 15
years, and by the time that is ex
hausted other timber will have grown
to sufficient size. They have a very
extensive plant, aud do a largo busi
ness, having a railroad uine ini'cs
long through their timbered lands,
which will he continued as necessity
arises. This road is equipped with
engines, lumber cars, log cars, Ar.,
and enables the firm to expedite their
business very materially.
Mr. Paxton says lie has become an
expert millman, engineer, mechanic
and general utility man, and can run
any and all parts of the business.
|Thc magnitude of the lumber business
done by these large mills is not gen
erally known, in this and the upper
sections of the State, hut it is of no in
considerable amount, and is looming
up into importance. Our trade with
foreign ports, supplied by the lower
counties, is immense.

A Golden Opportunity.
Though cut oft from the outside

water or a. loug tiresome ride over
land,, Carrabclle has steadily grown,
prospered and carried on an extensive
lumber and timber business with for
eign countries, and now that the ear
ly completion of the Augusta, Talla
hassee and Gulf Railway is assured,
nothing can hold our thrifty little
neighbor down, and she will at once
begin to boom. And Tallahassee
being so closely linked to this, one of
the best and safest harbors on the
Gulf coast, will tcel the throb of the
pulse, and these two cities will in
deed he sisters, each working to Help
in developing the resources of the
other. Tltere arc great possibilities
for Carrabelle, aud, witli the vim and
progress that her citizens have, these
will soon he opened up and made
known to the world.
The completion of the Augusta,
Tallahassee and Gulf will 'give to
some live business men a golden op
portunity. They can establish whole
sale houses at Carrabclle and supply
all Middle Florida and .South Georgia
with bulk groceries, meats, hay, grain,
etc. Why? Let us see. Well, iu
the first place water transportation is
much cheaper than all rail. It will
he au easy matter to secure a liuc of
steamers to ply between New Or
leans and Carrabclle. Then again
grain, hay and meats can he bought
in the Northwest in hulk at aston
ishingly low prices, loaded on hoard
boats and brought down the Missis
sippi and to Carrabell without break
ing hulk. This would secure the pat
ronage of the territory above named,
for the Carrabclle wholesale mer
chants would he enabled to success
fully compete with other markets,
giving lower prices and even then
making better profits.
Then, again, quite a cotton busi
ness can in: worked up, and a liberal
share of tlie crop would lie shipped to
New Orleans via Carrabclle. The
foreign vessels coming into the port
of Carrabclle for lumber will bring
cargoes of merchandise such as is not
produced in this country, and thus a
foreign business will he opened up,
aud we can import all of our coffee,
and work up an extensive trade with
,South and Central America, having
Carrabclle declared a port of entry as

People will continue to buy groceries
on 30 days’ time, and thereby pay 15
per cent, more for them than they can
buy them for for the spot cash. Don’t
you know you are paying 15 per cent,
on some account the merchant can’t
collect? He lias to charge those who
do pay, enough to make good his
losses in had accounts. It is perfectly
legitimate and business-like, too! He
has to live. But while it is perfectly
right in him to charge you that way,
it is very foolish in you to pay it,
because you can make that per cent,
yourself by buying your goods for
cash. I will take your order at regu
