Chiet Engineer Cook also informed
the reporter that the contractors would
be here about the first of September,
and that then the work ol construction
would begin on this side of the river
in earnest, and that there would be no
let-up until the road was completed.
The Floridian’s special reporter at
the river sends in about the same in
formation. He says: “It is railroad
now in good earnest—about one-half
of the river is piled, and work keeps
moving—they drive through stiff clay
and sl’ike solid rock—splendid found

Those who have money to invest

body, and had only spoken, when
suddenly, placing his hand on his
heart, he exclaimed: “Oh! God, what
is the matter with me?” He fell hack

JOS. IIA NS FIX MERRILL,
Mayor pro tern.
Thomasville, Oa., Aug. 10, 1880.
Why is It
People will continue to buy groceries
on .'10 days’ time, and thereby pay 15
per cent, more for them than they can
buy them for for tlic spot cash. Don’t
you know you are paying 15per cent,
on some account the merchant can’t
collect? He has to charge those who
do pay, enough to make good his
losses in bad 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,
il is very foolish in you to pay ft,
becauso you can make that per cent,
yourself by buying your goods for
cash. I will take your order at regu
lar prices, and then discount it 15 per
cent, for the cash.
