We were pleased to meet cx-Scna

Mr. McCay, the adjuster for the

Hansell & Merrill are local agents
here, came down on Wednesday anil
promptly adjusted the insurance which
Mr. J. L. Linton had on his stock,sat

came down yesterday, and the losses
will he promptly adjusted.
A quarter to 4 o’clock yesterday
morning the alarm bell announced
another fire, which was soon located
on Dawson street corner of Clay. It
was the dwelling house of Mr. Archie
Davenport, and. was soon consumed,
with about half the furniture. Mr.
Davenport’s family lias been away
from home for some days, and he was
alone in Ihc house, and was waked by
the roaring of the fire, which envelop
ed the whole rear portion when lie
discovered it. Hastily dressing, he,
aided by Mr. Tom Bottoms, who lives
near by, succeeded in saving the fur
niture from the two front rooms, but
everything contained in the back
rooms, as well as all the winter cloth
ing, bedding, &c., which was stored
in a closet in the back part of the house,
was destroyed The Mitchell fire
company and the Hook and Ladder
company responded with their machines
but the fire was of a character, and so
far advanced, that the companies could
do ho good. As there was a great
scarcity of water at that point, it is very
fortunate that the house was isolated.
If it had been thickly built up ncartWfc
fire, great damage would have result
ed. Mr Davenport says there had
been no fire on the place since dinner
lime the day previous, and it is hard
to suppose that it could have smoul
dered for 16 hours, lie was insured
in the Hartford, Hansell A Merrill,
agents, for the sum of $800 on the
house, and in the Atlanta Home, Jas.

promptly on the grounds and assumed
direction of the. fire hoys, who did all

Eleven and a Half Cents for Cotton.
These are the. figures paid by
Messrs. Mitchell and McIntyre for
cotton, this week. These young mer
chants are determined that cotton
shall bring as much, in Thom-
axvillc, ns in] any other place.
This is the right spir.it, and we hope
the balance of the merchants and
buyers here will co-operate with the
firm mentioned, in their laudable ef
forts to hi'ld the trade of the town.
In union there is strength.
Farmers can get ns much money
for cotton 111 Thomasvillc, ns they can
anywhere. And then they can buy
goods here as cheap as anywhere.
The Biggest Yet.
Mr. W. D. 1’cacock has brought to
this office the champion Le Conte pear
of the season. It measured thirteen
inches in circumference, and tipped
the scales at 20 ounces. It was a
beauty. Mr. l’eacock seems to have
the knack of raising the best of every
Col, A. T. McIntyre.
The friends of education and the
university of the State, are to he
congratulated on the appointment of
Col. McIntyre, as one of the trustees
of that institution under the new law.
Recognizing Col. McIntyre’s ability,
long experience, and peculiar fitness
for the resp msihlc position, the gov
ernor lias appointed him for the
longest term under the law, eight
years. The new law brings the great
university nearer the people. And
that is where it should lie.

Thomasvillc now has an opportuni
ty to secure appropriate grounds for a
park; to secure them at less, much
less than the property could be sold to
private parties. We propose, in to
morrow's issue, to meet some of the
objections which are being urged
against the purchase. When the facts
are given, we feel sure that many who’
now oppose the issuing of bonds will
see that they are mistaken. The ques
tion is a most important one for Thom-
asvilic. It is important to every man
who owns one dollar’s worth of real
estate in the town. It is apparent
to the most casual observer that' the
winter business of Thomasvillc is now
her main stay. Take that away, do
aught to cripple it, and decay would
strike the town from stem to stern.
We need not repeat what is known to
all, that Paradise Park is one of the
main magnets here. With the excep
tion of the drives in the surrounding
country, which only the rich can in
dulge in, the park is the only out door
attraction. And shall that be destroyed?

G. M. LOVEJOV,
Why is It
People will continue to buy groceries
on .'!<) 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 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 iu him to charge you that way,
it is very foolish iu 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
lar prices, and then discount it 15 per
cent, for the cash.
