Park Pointers and Paragraphs. Let the advocates of each side re member that every man is entitled to his opinion. Northern gentlemen, attracted here by the park, and other advantages, now pay enough taxes in the town to more than pay interest on the bonds, and to provide a sinking fund for the same. The sinking fund, $500 per annum will he placed where it will draw a good interest, interest equal, if not more, than what the town pays on the bonds. If the ladies had a vote there would be a big majority.for the park. The rich have lawns, big yards and little parks of their own; give the poor children of die town a showing for some fresh air. No money will be expended on the park until the tax paytrs demand it. A number of registered voters do not pay tax on more than $500 worth of property. These will have to pay thirty-one and a quarter cents annual ly to the park fund. With the park secured, many north cm people will buy and build here. This- means more taxable property, and good wages lor brick layers, car penters, mechanics of all classes, and day laborers. A prominent northern gentlemen, who has invested thousands here, and who will in the future make his winter home here, said, before leaving last April: "I will he one of ten men to give $500 to beautify Paradise Park.” Every visitor coming here is inter ested in the preservation of the park. And Thomasville is interested in briuging as many of them here as possible, and then in holding them as long as possible. Did you ever stop to think, that not less than $t0,000 per day is.paid out here by visitors, at the height of ■ the season? This money finds its way into a hundred channels, finds its way even into the cabins of the poorest. And Paradise Park js an important factor in bringing and keeping these money .spending people here. Every progressive town in the country is providing themselves with parks— with open places where the children and all others can escape from crowd ed homes, and enjoy fresh air. Let posterity foot the hill. We will be making a good trade lor them. Paradise Park, if the town grows at all, will, hclorc the last of the bonds arc due, he worth one hundred thous and dollars. It is a good trade. The late S. Alexander Smith, in giving the town an option oil the property, at $500 per acre, priced it at about half what he could have sold it lor to private indi viduals. But he wanted to do some tiling for the town, where his long hie was passed. The Smith heirs, while they know that a much larger sum could readily be realized for the property, feel that they arc acting right in making the sacrifice, for the reason that the late Mr. Smith was anxious lor the town to own the property as a park. They will religiously and conscientiously carry out, in so far as they can, his well known wishes on the subject. It is purely a business transaction. The property, all admit, is worth twice what the town can get it at, not taking into account what it will he worth to the place, as winter resort. This last valuation is beyond computation. Thomasville,Glark County, Alabama, not Thomasville, Georgia. The Age-Hcrald^Birminghani, Ala., publishes, with big display headlines, a dispatch from Montgomery, saying that typho-malaria is raging in Tliom- nsville, Georgia. The Ago Herald will, we are very sure, make the ■amende, by stating that the disease is raging in Thomasville, Alabama, in stead of tlie well known Southern health resort, Thomasville, Georgia. This place has been perfectly healthy this summer, ns in fact it usually is, in both winter and summer. Thomas- ville is jealous of her fair and well- earned reputation for health. It is the brightest gem in her crown. There is not a healthier place in the South. Epidemics, of any kind, are unknown here. People die here, it is true, hut they die from those natural causes and diseases which, in tiie or der of nature and providence, removes the living. The dispatch from Montgomery, as it appeared in tlie Age-IIerald, reads ns follows: 'Momtcomkhv, Aug. 21.—Dr. Cochran, state health officer, who has been to Thomasville to investigate the sickness reported at that point, reach ed tlie city at 11 o’clock this morning, hi conversation with the Age-Herald correspondent concerning his visit to Thomasville, Dr. Cochran said: "The disease at Thomasville was an out break of what is termed by physicians a typho-malarial fever. I was furn ished the names of twenty patients who had the disease, toil of whom died, eight at Thomasville anil two others who had been removed to oth er places. The first case sickened 011 June 8 and died on June 18. The second deatli from the disease oc curred July 3d. “I saw five cases of fever in the town while there, all of whom had the fever before my arrival. There lias been 110 new cases in the past ten days. I found the sanitary condition of the place had, and T think tin's must have been the cause of the excessive mor tality from the disease. “Of the three cases which I saw, two were doubtful, though showing some improvement. The other three were in a fair way to recovery. The dis ease, typho-malarial fever, made its appearance in north Alabama some years since, and has been gradually working southward. We have had the fever in this city, and in all local ities from Selma north. It has only just reached Thomasville,and attracted attention there because of its fatality, caused probably by the had sanitary condition, ami to the fact that it was to the physicians there a new character of fever.” our Birmingham contem porary, and all papers copying the above, will do Thomasville, Georgia, llio justice of publishing the correc tion. Good Farming. Mr. .J. L. Farrier, living two miles from town on the Tallahassee road, has alrcad sold 12 bales of cotton from a JO acre field. He will sell six more the coming week, and expects, to gath er 30 hales in all from the field. It is a double compliment to Mr. Far rier, to say that the place on which this farming was done,was a few years since, considered 011c of the poorest places in the county. Special attention is directed to the advertisement of Miss Laura Jones. Sc is now closing out her damaged stock at prices which will surprise everybody. It is her purpose to clean out the old stock entirely, before the arrival of new full anil winter goods. Now is the time for bargains. l’rof. A. G. Miller, of Charleston, S. C., who is to he prolcssor of mathe matics, and have charge of the military feature of the South Georgia College, will arrive this afternoon. C. H. Young & Co. Tlie Monticcllo Tribune has this to say for tlie above pushing and reliable firm: C. 11. Young A Co., the great clothing house of Thomasville, are now receiving their fall stock, and they have all the latest styles iu gen tlemen’s wear, They sold scores of suits to the Tribune patrons in tlie spring and will do the same tiling this fall. .Ik Hi.
