The Thomasville and Augusta Road.
Mr. T. C. Mitchell attended a
meeting of the projectors of the above
road at Augusta this week. He re
turned Friday night, and reports that
an organization lms been perfected.
Mr. C. E. Smith was elected Presi
dent., and Col. A. ^P. Wright, Vice
President, Mr. Robert Bearden, of
Moultrie, was elected one of the Direc
tors. Steps were taken for an imme
diate survey of this line, and also for
a thorough canvass of the territory
between Thomasville and Augusta.
This will be gratifying news to the
citizens of Thomasville. The gentle
men who are interested in this scheme
are well known capitalists and rail
road experts. A connection with
Augusta, is, without doubt, one of
the most important to Thomasville
which could lie made. Its results
will be far reaching. It will placo
Thomasville in direct aiid vital con
nection with all the great trunk lines
leading through Georgia to the sea
board. Tho benefits to be derived
from such connections cannot be over
estimated ; it will vitalize business,
make the town a competitive point,
increase her population, build up new
industries, and start the busy hum of
many new enterprises. These will
bring population, capital and pros
perity. This enterprise should, ns it
will, receive the hearty support of
our business men, as well ns others
who are interested in the future pros
perity ot Tlionmsville. We have ar
rived at a period iu our history, where
inaction will he fatal. Action, firm,
vigorous action, should he our watch
From Old Kentucky.
Mr. W. B. Williams, a brother-in-law
of Capt. Shuck Whittaker, whose pres
ence in the city yesterday we noted,
bought when leaving Cincinnati,a round
trip ticket to Thomasville for one fare.
These round trip tickets to this and
other southern points, arc being sold
by Cincinnati Southern and L. & N.
roads. They are good for thirty days,
and arc only sold at intervals of about
ten days. The first were sold on the
loth of this month. These sales of
round trip tickets will again occur on
Jljc 20th inst., and on the lirst of Oct.
The rates arc sufficiently low to induce
many western people, who arc looking
southward for homes, to visit this sec
Mr. Williams has already invested
in property here, and wiH, in all prob
ability, make Thomasville bis borne.
He will be cordially welcomed by all
classes of otir citizens. We want just
such settlers as Mr. Williams rep
For the Children.
Anything affecting the careful train
ing of children and their future useful
ness, should claim thccarncst atten
tion of parents. In connection with
these thoughts, we call attention to
the communication of Miss Barnes.
She proposes, commencing to-morrow,
to take charge of and teach these little
toddlers of Thomasville, these men
and women of the futlire, two weeks,
free of any charge. Parents should
read the communication.
Griffin and Sturdivant.
Our readers will notice the new ad
vertisement of Messrs. Griffin & Stur
divant, who recently enlarged their
store room and put in a very large
stock of harness, saddles, bridles,
whips, and everything pertaining to
their line, as well as having added a
line of carriages and buggies to their
trade. They do a general repair bus
iness also, and all goods sold and
work done is guaranteed to give satis

Mako Your Town Attractive.
Elsewhere will be found an article
taken from the Floridian, to which
wo call the attention of our readers.
It is an argument in favor of beauti
fying and making attractive the Cap
ital city of Florida. The arguments
will apply with equal force to Thom
asville. It is a well known truth,
and we need not reiterate it here, that
Thomasville, now more than ever, de
pends upon her local attractions.
Business has changed. Merchants
who formerly handled osnaburgs, now
handle silks. It is becoming more
apparent every day that the prosperi
ty of Thomasville depends largely on
her winter business. While this
should not he the case, it is neverthe
less true. Without the improvements
which should characterize and mark
winter resorts in the South, Tliomas-
villc will he left, left in the lurch.
There are many things to be clone,
among the most important, is the
acquisition of the park. That will he
accomplished in the near future, but
homes and Streets should he beautified
as well. Not only should attention
bo paid to improving and beautifying
the'town, but our suburban territory
should also receive attention. Speak
ing of suburban surroundings, our
drives rank first in importance.
These should be kept in first-class or
der all the year round, ami more es
pecially during the winter months.
Thomasville cannot afford to tail in
giving the attention to these and other
improvements which will add to her
already many attractions. The com
ing season promises to he a most :;ue-
cussful one. Let everything lie done
possible to make tho place and its
surroundings attractive as possible.
One man cannot do tho work. It
requires the co operation of all our
citizens. If every one will lend their
aid, even in a small way, Thomasvjllc
will soon rank, even if it does not
already, as one of the most attractive
and delightful resorts of tho South.
Our Hotel and hoarding house
accommodations are equal to tho best.
What wo want now is more out-door
attractions. These can lie added to
gradually, and at little cost. Let
everybody co operate in the work.

A Beautiful Water-Fall.
Hon. R. A. Connell, ot Decatur
county, was in the city yesterday. Mr.
Connell is one of the progressive men
of his section, lie has recently had a
beautiful series of views and pictures
taken of his premises and vicinity.
One of these pictures, a splendid
water-fall, has been left at this old. e.
The falls are about seven miles north
of Whigham, amidst the most beauti
ful scenery of southwest Georgia, and
near the celebrated Cane lakes. The
water falls about one hundred feet,
and disappears as soon as it strikes
the ground. At nud day the view is
indescribably beautiful. The water
falling acts as prisms for the sun's rays,
producing a splendid rain bow. A
drive of about one hour through a
dense pine lorcst, and through the
large farms of Mr. Connell, brings one
to the falls, and it is a trip well worth
This view, and others, were taken
by Thotnasville's well known artists,

citizens of Thomasville.
About Kindergarten Schools and Chil
I'Mitur Times. Enterprise:
Some one said to me since my re
turn, “.Miss Barnes, the people here
do not know enough about, and have
not seen enough of Kindergarten
work, to Ikj taken with it, or care
much for it.”
As 1 afterwards thought about it,
1 remembered that during my two
years work, we have had very little
company to sec the children at work.
The parents who have been here to
see for themselves how their children
are working, and how the work com
pares with that of other children, I
am afraid I could count on my fingers
on one hand. At our Christmas and
closing exercises you have always
taken so much interest, and given us
a good audience, so that I am afraid
1 have been nt fault in not giving you
more cordial invitations to come and
sec us at any time.
• Your leaving the children so entire
ly with me, has shown your confi
dence in iny work, and I appreciate
and thank you for it, but I want you
to know for yourselves by coming to
sec them at work.
Some, I know, have seen and un
derstand Kindergarten work, hilt as
there may bo many who do not, I
will endeavor to place it before you
iu the future in such a way that you
may know more of it if you wish.
The work is comparatively new,
and it always takes time to introduce
new and improved work. At first,
there were only a few private schools
in America, now you will find one or
more in every town or village of any
size, and in cities you will find them
scattered here and there everywhere,
ft is only the last year or two that
they have been introduced into the
public schools. This year they arc
adding them to many iu cities and
towns. You will find training classes
for teachers, mothers and nurses, in
the cities, eaclij having a separate
course which has its place in tho
chillis life, the child when it is old
enough to use playthings, and the
mother and nurse lay the foundation
(or the teacher to begin her work.
The time is coming when only trained
nurses for children he iu demand.
It is not many years since wo first
heard of trained, nurses for sick peo
ple. Certainly trained nurses for
children are of equally as much im
You will at once see there i.s a very

There has been more work done
in the school than any other way
yet, more children can he reached
that way, but much will he done by
the mother and nurse in tho future.
If you could only see these people
who have done so much to advance
this work, how much they have at
tained, and how much in earnest
they are for the greatest good to the
child, you would certainly think it is
worth looking into, and that their
opinions and ideas are worth some
i ask the people who arc interested
ill this work to send their children,
who are about 4A years old and up,
who have never been to school, to mo
to-morrow morning, at 9 o'clock. I
will keep them until 12 m., and give
them Kindergarten work two weeks
free of charge. The first week leave
them to us to work with, the second
we will he glad to have any one visit
us as much as you like, every day if
you wish ; or any time after.
After the two weeks are up, if you
do not wish to leave them longer, we
will not feel hurt to have you take
I did not think of doing this until
the above remark set me to thinking
how I could best let you know more
of the work, consequently the she rt
notice docs not give me time to go to
each one. Very respectfully,
