This term we use this morning
alluding to a habit which some people
have of stealing from us in a small
way; in fact, a petty larceny, a small
larc'eny. Webster defines petit
petty as small, little, trilling, inconsid
erable, and larceny as unlawful taking
ol things personal, Ac.,—theft. Now,
the class of people to whom we are
going to allude would scorn to commit
petit larceny in its generally accepted
meaning, and they possibly have never
considered that in availing themselves
of our time, experience, talents, and
other things necessary to get up a
newspaper, without rendering an
equivalent fir it, they are taking from
us what is ot value to us, and without
rendering a quid pro quo for the same;
and thereby committing an offense.
It is true, a small offense, and there
fore such an one as no right-thinking
person would or could conscientiously
commit. We allude to the habit
which some people have of reading our
paper, especially the daijy, without
subscribing for it. liow often do we
hear the remark with brazen effrontery:
‘Ob, I read your paper; 1 don’t take it,
but I borrow my neighbor’s,” said with
an unction as if the fact that he read
it was a compliment to us. Does he
know the contempt he is held in by
not only the editor, but his neighbor
who is not allowed to read his own
paper because he dislikes to refuse so
small a request as the loan of a news
Now, we are led to these remarks
from the complaint of a subscriber,
who said us yesterday: “Frequently, I
can’t get to read my paper. There
are seven persons who make a busi
ness of reading my paper, and fre
quently some of them carry it off be
fore I can get a chance to read it, and
they are men any one of whom
could buy me. 1 '
Now, is not this a shame, and an
imposition upon the hard worked edi
tor, who has his all invested in his
business, and depends upon the pat
ronage ot the reading public lor his
livelihood ? In pily’s name, if you are
able to subscribe for a paper, do so,
and read your own, or, failing in this,
don't read ■ any one else’s. It is an
imposition on the man who pays lor it
and the man who prims it. Again,
the printer does not contemplate, when
lie agrees with a subscriber to let him
have his paper, that it shall serve for
any than his personal use and that ol
his lamily, and it would be. a good
idea for our solons, who are wasting
so much time changing the code, to
enact a law that no person should be
allowed to read a newspaper paid for
by other than himself or his or her
THE GUARDS ARE ALL RIGHT.
What Capt. Hansell Says in Regard to
Ati.axta, Ga., Aug. 19,1889.
In your issue of Saturday, the 17th
inst., you copied from some exchange
an article calling attention to the fact
that no more new military companies
could be organized in this State, ex
cept those mentioned in that article,
and at the end of that article you
asked: -“What about the Thomnsville
Guards?” or something to that effect.
As the article copied, aud your com
ment, or inquiry, may possibly have a
discouraging effect on the members of
the Guards, and may deter some from
joining that company, who would
otherwise become members, aud
knowing that you desire to do all you
can to aid in keeping up said com
pany and adding to its strength aud
efficiency, I have taken the liberty of
writing this explanation:
The organization of the Guards was
authorized by the advisory board last
fall, and the company had been fully
organized before the last meeting of
the hoard, to which relercnce was
made in the article you published.
The report of Capt. Wight to the
Adjutant-General was very compli
mentary and satisfactory, and the
Thomnsville Guards is now one of the
regularly officered, uniformed and
recognized companies of Georgia vol
unteers, anil will he armed and equip
ped as soon as the State receives the
arms and accoutrements from the
United States. These arms were due
July 1st, and should have been here
about that time, but from some cause,
unknown to the Adjutant-General,
they have not been received.
The Guards are all right, and only
need the good will and hearty en
couragement of the people ol Thomas-
villc, to go ahead and become one ol
the very best companies in the State,
if I may judge by the very great
progress already made.

Advertising Thomasvillc and Thomas
Shortly before the late meeting of
the State Agricultural Society, Mr.
S. G. McLendon was requested to for
ward to Mr. Northen, president of the
Society, some statistics of this imme
diate section. In the brief time inter
vening, Mr. McLendon compiled some
interesting statistics and matter touch
ing Thomasvillc and' Thomas county.
As will be seen by the correspondence
below, the manuscript reached Mr.
Northen too lute to lie used in the
preparation of his admirable address
before the convention, but lie has had
it incorporated in and made a part of
that address, of which ten thousand
copies was ordered printed for distri
bution. Mr. Northen writes as fol

A- drunken man, a day or two
since, used some abusive language
on the streets to Judge Hansell. The
Judge, who always carries a good
stout stick—not for offensive purpo
ses, however—felt very much inclined
to use his stick on the fellow, but
allowed his better judgement to pre
vail. In any event the Judge,
though well advanced in years, dots
not, like Justice Field of the Supreme
court, need or want pny ono to go
around with him for his protection.
Letter from Nacoochee.
Nacoochee Vali.ey, Aug. 19,''89.
Dear TimesEnterprise—As my
friend Miller is out of this immediate
neighborhood, I suppose it would not
be amiss for me to give you a few
happenings occurring in this mountain
retreat. The weather is about the
same as October at home. We had
a fire this morning. I sec by my
friend’s letler in your paper that his
conscience is pursuing him, as he
seems to think I will tell on him while
we were at Indian Springs, but 1
shan’t say a word, because we were
both in the same boat—neither of us
having our better half with us. Tell
him I won’t say a word about that
pretty widow he fell in love with there.
A3 to our other Thomasvillc friend—
but I suppose he has a right to fall in
love—and it seems that he has profit
ed by that right. I won't call any
name, but these same Thomasvillc
boys seem to be up to snuff now. As
near as I can judge, I think that at
least one of our young men means to
have a mother-in-law to see in this
mountain country. It would be very
convenient to be able to get free hash
two or three months during the heat
of summer. But I won’t tell on him,
hut it is provoking to be waiting on a
fellow who keeps promising that “if
you will wait three days I will go
home with you,” and when the time
comes to find that lie still wants two
or three days more. You know when
a fellow has been fooled that way and
sees daily the same young lady at his
side, why we have but one conclusion
to come to, that is, to leave hint alone
in his glory, and that is what I have
decided to do, so I will leave here
Thursday, and hope to be home Fri
With best regards to friends,
K. O. Thompson - .

Yesterday wc mentioned the fact
that the new Jackson street sewer had
been completed to a point near Mr.
A. F. Prevatts. The water was
turned into the last opening yesterday
morning, at four minutes past nine,
through a three inch hose from a
hydrant on Jackson street. Taking
a scat with Marshal Spair, in a turn
out, the reporter and the marshal
started for the end of the sewer, two
miles distant, at the moment the wa
ter was turned into the sewer. It
was a question whether the scribe and
the man of authority would reach the
end of the sewer before the water or
not. The end of the sewer was reach
ed, but “narry” a drop of water was
running. We waited, and waited
and waited ; still no water. A half
hour passed ; three quarters of au
hour passed, and still no water. The
marshal was getting, as Henry Mc
Lendon would say “nervious.”
“The water ought to have reached
here before now,’’said Mr. .Spair, as
he kept his eye 011 the mouth of the
sewer. “Could anything have happen
ed?Is there a break somewhere? Is the
tsewer clogged up at some point?"
The scribe was unable to answer these
“Mr. Pinson,” said the marshal,
turning to Inspector Pinson, who was
present. “1 wish you would ride
hack to town and sec if anything is
the matter at the other end.”
Mr. Pinson departed on his mission.
Still we watched and waited for
water which would show that the
sewer was all right.. And this was an
important question, affecting as it did,
and does, the'health of the town.
“What time have you, Mr. Mar
shal,"’asked the scribe, as the thought
of “more copy" flitted through his
“Four minutes after ten,”—“there
she conics,” said Mr. Spair, as the wa
ter from the new sewer, two miles away,
all discolored with fresh clay, came
rushing out of the sewer.
And the sewerage was all right.
It had taken the water just one
hour to run two miles.
Dr. T. S. Hopkins, who lias been
summering in the mountains of north
Georgia and. the Carolinas, returned
home Tuesday night, looking refreshed
and vigorous from his trip. He lias

Our readers are advised to read the
new advertisement of Mrs. Carroll,
and see what bargains she offers in
millinery. Mrs. Carroll is evidencing
liuc judgment in letting the public
know that she wants to sell goods, and
she lias demonstrated that advertising
is the best way to do that. Advertis
ing pays, aud when a merchant lias
bargains to offer he is very likely to
lot the public know it through the
Thomasvillc Street Railway.
The House passed, on Tuesday, the
hill incorporating the Thomasvillc
street and suburban railway company.
This probably insures us a street
railroad in the near future.
