The question of issuing bonds for
the purchase of a park is one of vital
importance to the city. The discus
sion already had through the city pa
per, eonviuces me that many of the
facts involved in this qupstion are not
generally understoo 1 by the voters of
the city. Let us then assemble and
discuss tlie matter. Let both sides be
fairly presented to the voters, and a
correct conclusion will be the result.
There are many voters who do not
read the papers. To the end, there
fore, that the question, pro and con,
may be presented in its true light to
the voters of the town, I take the lib
erty of calling a mass meeting of all of
the citizens of the town, fo be held at
the city hall on Tuesday, Hcpt. 3d,
next, at 8 p. m., and earnestly request
every citizen of the town, whether
registered or not, whether for or
against the park, to he present.
This matter concerns us all. Let
us discuss it and decide it like business
mcu. II. W. Hopkins,
Our correspondent, with the above
nom de plume, has another article in
to day’s paper on the park question.
We have, to-day, only time and space
to refer to one of Ms suggestions: that
the council give somc^assuranee tlint
monies lie lirst expended on perfecting
our waterworks and sewerage system.
This suggestion will meet with general
approval. While wc bcliovc it is the
sense of tlie public that the park
should he secured now, for the reason
that the property can never be bought
again at tlie same price, yet wo think
it is also the sense of the public that
no monies should lie expended on the
park until our waterworks and sewer
age system is completed.
Broad Street” is a clear headed
gentleman, and lie has shuck tlie key
note of the situation. Wc do not be
lieve the people would vote the-bonds
if large sums were to he expended on
tlie park. Let the tax payers lie
assured on this point, and there will,
be, practically, little or no opposition
to the park. The park is good enough
as it is for the present. In after years,
when tho town sees It way clear, im
provements can be gradually made,
which will mnkc it one of the most
attractive features of our growing
Upon inquiry at the warehouse of
Evans & McLean, yesterday,
learned that they had received, up to
11 o’clock, 72 hales of cotton, and it
was still coming in. This is a good
indication, and shows that the farmers
appreciate the efforts of our mer
chants to induce their trade by pay-
thc Lop of the market. Messrs.
Mjtcliell & McIntyre, on yesterday,
were paying Savannah quptations for
cotton, and seem determined to do
their part towards bringing the cotton
trade to this point. Let other mer
chants, if they arc not doing so, follow
the example of Messrs. Mitchell A
“Ilroad Street,” referring to a para
graph in yesterday’s issue, to the ef
fect that “We have boon crawling
long enough. It is time to throw the
nursing bottle away,” says wc have
introduced a figure of speech which he
fears wc do not understand.
This is the hardest hit wp have ever
id. And it to corhc from a friend,
too. Et In, Brute! Just to think
that wc are not posted in these things.
But our friend is.
A Gem of a Book.
"Scraps of Song and Southern
Scenes” by Montgomery 51. Folsom,
should be in every library. It con
tains many gems. There is a vein of
humor, pathos, and a quaint philoso-
phy, running through the entire book.
The work is tire brain product of a wire
grass bo^, one whose earlier years
were passed in Soutli Georgia. 5Ir.
Folsom, while living in Colquitt coun-
ty, was an occasional contributor to
the Times. One of his true to life
poems, “Jeff Hancock’s Bull” original
ly appeared in these columns. His
tribute, in verse, to Miss Winnie Davis,
the “Child of the Confederacy," is an
exquisite gem. There is little or noth
ing of the “cut and dried” about Mr.
Folsom’s writings. Thoughts and
sentiments bubble up from the hearts
fountain, pure and fresh as crystal
waters. His style is perfectly natural,
and in this lies the great charm of the
work, lie touches, and withthchand
of a master, every chord in the human
heart; and they vibrate to the magic
touch, of the poet’s wand.
The Constitution, in noticing tlie
work, says ;
“The book itself is no small con
tribution to southern literatuc. It
contains pot ms.which wc arc persua
ded will endure. They are - those
which have been struck off at the
white heat ot inspiration. They arc
almost all of them the genuine expres
sions of thought and feeling. There
is nothing of the hanimered-out,
madc-to-ordcr appearance about
them. Whatever there is in them is
the true outpouring of the heart; some
times distressed, some times exulting,
some times bowed down with remorse
and some times thrilling with the ec-
stacy of life and passion, now throb
bing with the frenzied fever of delirium
and now resting in the calm solitudes
of nature’s free and fair domain.’’
The work is neatly bound, and is
offered at a price which places it with
in reach of all,
As an evidence of what persistent
and systematic advertising will do, we
