Miss Mary F. Barnes is an enthusi

dergarten training school. In a well
written letter to the Thomasvil.le
Times-Enterprise, her home paper,
Miss Barnes takes occasion to say:
■•Mr. and Mrs. Hailmann are two of
the grandest, noblest educational
workers in the United States. In the
educational papers, teaching in
schools and institutes, their whole aim
seems to be the most good to the child.
Their instruction throughout shows
the most careful observation, and the
effects of the different kinds ol work
on the child. Bis po-ition as teacher
in kindergarten schools, also of train
ing classes, has given them something
besides theory to base their ideas on.”
We take the above from one of our
western exchanges. Miss Barnes has
just returned from the west, where she
has been studying the very latest and
best modes of teaching childten. She
is peculiarly well fitted for the work.

A NEW CITY ON THESEA COAST
An Old Homestead Turned into a City—
What a Railroad Docs.
Darien, Ga., Sept. 13,1889.
I left home on a flying business
trip of a few days, and will return on
Monday. I find everybody in this
section elated over the prospect of
their new railroad, which is now ail
assured thing beyond the possibility
of doubt. I have just visited the pres
ent terminus, or rather starting point,
of the road, ft is ntBellville, the old
homestead of the Hopkins family—
the tramping grounds of my father’s
boyhood days—twelve miles from Da
rien, towards Savannah. It seems a
little uureal that the old plantation
should become a city, but there is no
longdV any question of it. The enthu
siasm of the citizens runs high; excite
ment is at blood heat, and well it
might he. There is no more eligible
location for a city on the Southqfii
coast, than Belleville. Its topography
and its sanitary adaptability arc un
surpassed anywhere. It is high and
dry, level, and of greater altitude than
any other point on the Georgia coast.
The natural drainage is complete, and
sewerage is a simple and easy matter.
It consists of several thousands of
acres, which jut out, peninsula like,
into Sapelo river, an arm of the sea,
and is only seven miles from the At
lantic ocean. The harbor is the safest,
most roomy, and best in every way, of
any that Georgia claims. It is about
one mile wide, for even a great dis
tance inland from this point. Large
gunboats ran up it during the war; in
fact, the largest ship that floats on the
ocean can sail right up to Belleville.
The harbor is lnnd-lockcd by Craiton,
Sapelo, St. Catherine and Blackboard
islands, having a depth at tlio bar of
28 feet. That off Brunswick, so boast
cd about, is only 21 feet over the bar
at high water.
Tho railroad is graded and bridged
to Walthourville, on the 8. F. & W.
II. R. The ties arc fast being laid,
the iron has been bought, and the
railroad docks are nearly completed
for the landing of the iron, engines
and rolling stock of the road.
Northern capitalists have already
made an outlay of 860,000, aud many
thousands moro will soon ho invested.
The town is being laid out in lots for
sale. Hotels will he built; artesian
wells will be added to the already
fine supply of pure freestone water,
and there is no longer any doubt in
the minds of the most skeptical that
these old fields and pincy woods,
which have been so long buried in ob
scurity, will rise, Phtcnix like, into a
bright and'prosperous city, the peer of
any, and inferior to none of Georgia’s
thriving sea-coast towns.
The fishing is superb, tlie hunting
excellent, both on the mainland and
the islands. Quail, squirrels and tur
keys arc .plentiful, and deer, particu
larly on the islands, are as thick as
rabbits with us. It will give you a
better idea of the sport, when I tell
you that Mr. P. Hopkins, of Darien,
and a party of less than six in num
ber, killed ten deer in a part of a day,
on Blackboard island. I have myself
flushed six in an hour, hut not being
quick enough on trigger, I failed to
hag any of them. However, I had
the pleasure ot firing off my gun, aud
feeling my hair quickly stiffen up and
lift my hat to the fast disappearing
white tails, which played “now you
see it, and now you don’t,” in the saw
palmetto, and like the old gray mare
to Bro. Watkins, seemed to say, “fare
thee well, Bro. Hopkins.” I experi
enced what you perhaps have never
enjoyed, a genuine “buck ague.”
This islaud afforded headquarters
for the old pirato, Blackbeard. It is
here that his millions ol ill gotten
gains arc said to he buried.
The United States government has
sunk an artesian well at its quarantine
station on the south end of the island,
which spouts hot, smoking water,
about tnc same temperature of the
Carolina Hot Springs. Some persons
think it comes from Blackoeard’s
grave. J. G. H.
Augusta and West Florida.
The Augusta nnd West Florida
Railway company, was organized yes
terday, by the electioii of Mr. C. E.
Smith, of Washington, as President;
A. P. Wright, of Thomasville, as
Vice President; and Colden Ilhind, of
this city, as Secretary and Treasury.
The directors are Jesse Thompson, W.
N. Mcrcier, J. P. Verdery, F. B.
Pope nnd Colden Ilhind, of Augusta ;
A. P. Wright, A. T. McIntyre, Sr.,
Thomas C. Mitchell and S. L. Hayes,
of Thomasville ; Robert Bearden, of
Moultrie; J. D. Mayntrd, of Abbe
ville; W. W. Asliburn, of Eastman.
W. L. Phil lips, of Louisville; T. C.
Ilogue, C. E. Smith and T. B. Grecu,
of Washington ; Janies M. Smith, of
Oglethorpe county ; nnd T. J. Demp
sey, of Jackson.
The road is to he built from Augus
ta to Thomasville, and will probably
pass through the towns of Louisville,
Dublin, Eastman, Abbeville, Irwin-
ville and Moultrie.
Most of the counties along the line
were represented at the meeting, and
every delegation present promised a
liberal support to the enterprise. A
surveying corps will take the field
next week, and President Smith will
commence an active canvass for suli-
scriptions at once.
The directors are mostly active,
successful business men, and they are
earnest in taking hold of this work.
The Augusta and West Florida is a
most important road for Augusta, and
should receive hearty encouragement
from all of our people.—Augusta
For the information of “Flctchervillc,”
and all parties interested in his inquiry
ns to the current expenses of the town’,
we will state that the information asked
for will be given to-morrow, and we may
add, that the figures will be satisfacto
ry to the tax-payers, as well as to the
Iriends of tlie park, for they clearly dem
onstrate that the park bonds can be
issued without any detriment to any
necessary improvement, or without in
any way crippling the finances of the
town. The men who arc advocating
the park would not do so if it crip
pled the town.
Sunday and yesterday were warm
days. While we were basking in
September sun, the north-west, or a
good portion of it, was covered with a
white mantle of snow. Come south,
ye shivering ones.
It begins to look as if there was
another reconstruction and carpet hag
era ahead of the South. The south
has had some experience of this kind
in the past, aud she is fully prepared
to meet the. emergency again.
Mr. .1. M. Scott and wife, nee
Miss Ilossie Cochran, of Camilla,
were at tlie Stuart last night. They
were married yesterday, and are en
route to their future home, Bainbridgc.
Miss Cochran has a number of rela
tives in Thomas.
Mrs. Mattie Robinson, of Thomas
ville, who was the guest of Mrs. Allie
Glenn for a few days, returned home
Thursday morning. She made many
friends during her short stay, who will
be glad to see her in Cairo again.—
A few more weeks of careful atten
tion to the sanitary condition of the
town, and we will drift into the cool,
clear crisp fall weather. Now is the
time for unusual precautions. The
town has been remarkably healthy this
summer. Keep it so for the balance
of the season.
