One Hundred Thomas County Farmers.
We reproduce to-day, with a com
parative statement of the wealth of an
additional fifty farmers in this county,
the article by S. G. M. which appear
ed on Sunday morning. There were
a tew errors iu the first article, which
have been corrected. The article
will he of interest to the farmers of
this county, showing, ns it does, what
progress one hundred farmers, taken
at rnudora, have made within the
past ten'years. It should lie borne in
mind, that ten years ago, the farmers
of Thomas county, these one hundred
farmers included, were involved more
or less. Now it is conceded, by every
one, that the farmers of this county
arc in a far better condition, financial
ly, than they were ten years ago. So,
that in addition to their increase of
property should be added 'the tlioi^i-
ands and thousands of dollars of in
debtedness which they have paid off
since 1879. It is a fact that the far
mers of Thomas county have, this
jxar, come nearer running their farms
on a casli basis, than ever before.
One. tiling is clearly demonstrated,
demonstrated beyond cavil or dispute:
the farmers of Thomas county, at
least, arc not growing poorer. On.
the contrary, they arc gradually, hut
surely, improving their condition ev
Give the Girls a Chance-
There’s no use of talking; the girls
are coming to the front. Stand hack
and give them a chance. The latest
evidence of this is the appearance of
a neat and readable paper, "Southern
Girls,” published.at Sivaineboro, Ga.,
and edited by Miss Annie L:e Wilkins.
Miss Wilkins will, we trust, receive
that encouragement and support to
which she is so justly entitled. May
the young lady always have plenty of
pie at home, but no “pi” in the office;
may she never be locked up herself
(in places where some editors are)
but always have her "forms” safely
and securely "locked up;” mty
her “impressions” always he good;
may she be able to “make up” with
her best beau —if they should fall out;
may she always he "justified;” may
her “rules” lie straight; may (he ex

WHAT WILL THOMASVILLE DO?
Tho Augusta and West Florida Rail-
Wasiiinot^n, Ga., Aug. 1G, ’89.
Editor Times-E.vterpf.ise :
The charter of the Augusta and
West Florida railway has just passed
the Senate, and it is now in the hands
of the Governor for approval. The
corporators will meet soon for the
purpose of efleeting a temporary or
ganization, and a surveying corps will
take the field as soon as it can ho or
ganized. We want to get tilings iu
shape at once for nit active prosecu
tion of the work, and hope to enlist
the hearty sympathy and support of
every county along the line.
No section, however, lmsso deep an
interest in the building of this road as
the people of Tliomasvillc. Your
railroad system will never he complete
without a connection with Augusta,
nnd your intelligent people need no
arguments in support of this assertion.
A road to Curilelc would give you
sonic slight advantages not now pos
sessed, hut tlie same subscriptions that
would carry von to Uordele, will in
sure the Augusta connection, and give
you tho advantages of ten or twelve
roads, instead of two or three. And
the Augusta and West Florida will
connect you with the same roads that
you seek to reach at Cordelc. Your
connection with The Georgia South
ern and Florida, would he at or near
Tifton, and witli the Savannah, Atner
ictis and Montgomery in the neighbor
hood of Abbeville. If you had tho
Cordelc road finished and in operation
to-day, your railroad system would lie
almost as incomplete as it is now.
You would still need a direct line to
Augusta, because, without it, von can
never enjoy that prosperity which
your great advantages should com
mand. Money is abundant, and ma
terials which enter into the construc
tion of railroads were never so cheap
as at tho present time. The abundant
crops now growing will insure an era
of prosperity, and those things taken
together make this a remarkably fa
vorable time for the commencement
and prosecution of new railroad enter
All that is needed to insure success
in the building of the A'ugusta and
West Florida, is a hearty concert of
action amongst tho people along the
line-in active assistance and in sub
stantial subscriptions. And on this
subject let me say that the projectors
of this road assume nil the risks.
Whatever subscriptions your comity
may make to the preferred stock will
lie for a completed road from Augus
ta to Thomasville, and no subscriber,
therefore, risks the loss of n dollar.
Augusta nnd Thomasville are both
represented in the hoard of corpora
tors by some of their best business
men and largest capitalists, and it i-
earnestly hoped that the Thomasville
members will lie heartily supported by
the people of the city and county.
Mr. McIntyre’s Bill.
lion. A. T. McIntyre, Jr., has in
troduced an, important bill. It will
probably take the place of the famous
The bill reads as follows:
Section i. Be it enacted by the
general assembly of Georgia, and it is
hereby enacted by authority of the
same, that no corporation shall buy
shares cr stock in any other corpora
tion in this state or elsewhere, or to

nesses, or to encourage monopoly;
and all such contracts and agreements
shall be illegal and void.
’ Sec. 2 Be it further enacted, that
upon complaint made to the railroad
commission of this state, by any per
son, that any railroad company or cor
poration has violated the provisions ol

See. 3. Be it further enacted, that

Sec. 4. Be it lurther enacted, that

or has done any act, or made any
contract in violation of the provision
ot the first section of this act, the
solicitor general may, after submitting
the case as presented to him . to the
attorny general of the state, and hav
ing obtained his consent thereto, pro
ceed to bring suit in the county in
which said corporation was chartered,
to set aside anil declare said contract,

To the Merchants.
Since the Boston World Began its
publication at Boston, Ga., and the
merchants set in to advertising so
liberally, the trade of the town has
grown wonderfully. The business
men of the place have pul it on a per
fect boom right under the nose of
Thomasville and Quitman. The
Clarion congratulates our wideawake
friends, and the press has in the plucky
town an illustration of the way in which
big advertising brings big business.
Cairo and Boston are doing bigger
business to their size than any town in
South Georgia, and they both support
their local paper more liberally than
any towns we know. They arc villages
no longer.—Camilla Clarion.
There is a lesson in this for the
merchants ot Thomasville—if they
will learn it. Willjvou take the trcuble,
gentlemen, to look over the Weekly
T-E. on Saturday, and see how In any
Thomasville merchants are asking for
country trade * You will be surprised,
perhaps, at your own indifference.
Wc do not like lo complain about
lack o! patronage; you would say
that wc wanted only to make money
out ol you; but wc will tell you,
frankly, that you art doing yourselves-
antl the town—great injustice, in not
using the columns of your weekly
paper. It reaches almost every farm- j
er in the county. j
Why is It
People will continue to liny groceries
on dO days’ time, and thereby pay Id
percent, more for them than they can
buy them for for the spot cash. Don’t
you know you are paying Id per cent,
on some account the merchant can’t
collect' Ho has 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 cau make that per cent,
yourself by buying vour goods for
cash. I will take your order at regu
lar prices, and then discount it lo per
cent, for the cash.
