Elsewhere, in the proceedings of
the meeting held on Tuesday night
in the interest of the stock breeders
association, and the barbecue which
is to come off on the same day,. the
fifteenth of November, the committee
appointed at that meeting issues a
cal' for a meeting of all ex-confed-
erates of Thomas county. As is
knowif, a State confederate organi
zation was perfected some time ago in
Atlanta. Since that time numerous
counties in Georgia have perfected
county organizations. Next Thurs
day, the third inst. Brooks county
cx-coufederntcs will meet and organ
ize. Thomas county ex-confederates
should not be behind in this work of
organization. It is well for those
who wore the grey to meet, now and
then, for the purpose of renewing old
acquaintances and preserving the
traditions of a 'struggle which will
go down in history as the grandest of
ancient or modern times. The
South, though defeated in this strug
gle, has nothing to be ashamed of.
The name of her heroes and soldiers
are written high on the scroll of fame.
The shadow of defeat cannot, and will
not, blot or blur their memory or he
roism. There are hundreds of ox-
confederate* in Thomas county, many
having served in the same command,
and yet there arc doubtless instances
where these men, though living in the
same county, have never met since
they laid down their arms at the close
of the war. It is for the purpose of
having a general rc—union of those
men who responded to their country s
call when the tocsin of war sounded,
that this meeting has been called.
Coinc, bring your wives and children,
renew old tics, those tics which hind
closely together, men who were en
gaged in a common cause.
A Prosperous Colored Man.
Seven years ago Beil Burdinc com
menced work with Squire Mardre, on
his plantation. Ben was then con
siderably in debt, but by economy lie
lias gradually reduced this indebted
ness from year to year until this fall,
when he paid out and is once more
independent and happy. He was in
the city on Monday, and after paying
the last dollar that he owed, lie had
still left 839.18 in cash, and will
have at least two more bales of cotton
to sell, besides plenty of corn, fodder,
1 syrup, potatoes and meat to do him
for another year. Ben is both honest
and industrious, and is on the right
road to prosperity. He proposes to
steer clear of debt in the future, and
to become a wiser and .better citizen.
To this end lie subscribed to the
Times-Enteiii’hisk for the next twelve
months. It would be well if more of the
colored people would follow Ben's ex

Speaking of the approaching stock
breeders' fair, it is designed lo encour
age the breeding of home raisedstock.
YVe mention the fact, in this conncc
lion, that Mr, \V, M. Smith has ten
horses on his place, and that every one
of them arc home raised.
YVe understand that the city coun
cil will have Paradise Park carefully
and accurately surveyed at an early
day, for the purpose of determining
what is due the Smith estato on same,
at the rate of five hundred dollars per
acre. It is generally supposed that
the tract contains about twenty-six
acres, including three or four acres
owned by the Pincy YVoods Hotel
Company. After paying far this
tract, tho residue of tho bonds will he
appropriated to the completion of our
water works system. This is the prop
er direction, which the surplus ovor
and above what is necessary to pay
for the park, should be given.
“Experience” Recounts His Experience
in Running a Two-Horse Farm.
Experience and observation arc the
two best teachers I know of. By the
first you learn some very Unpleasant
things, by the other you may learn
how they can ho avoided. 9
I have been running a two-horse
farm for several years, and the meth
ods I have pursued show it to be a
difficult thing to make buckle and
tongue meet. At the end of the year,
when 1 have gathered my corn and
fodder, picked out my cotton, had it
ginned, packed, hauled to town and
sold, I have a little money in my
pocket, and feel sorter good.
My clothes, however, are a little
rusty, and I step into YY r olfl’s store
and buy me a now coat and pants. I
pull out mv little pocket-book, and
pay for them. I feel big and Wolff
feels glad, and asks me to call again.
I look across the street, and see two
signs up. One says Bass & McKin
non, the other says Mitchell & Mc
Intyre. Then I think of it; 1 owe a
little bill at each of these stores; I
will go over and pay them. I go, aud
when they turn to their hooks, lo and
behold! their accounts are twice as
big as I thought they ought to lie.
But I pay them, and think it is
strange that my accounts were so
large. I look over the bill, and sure
enough, I remember buying every
item charged iii it,
• Then I go to Stark’s and take a
glass of lemohade. That kinder re
freshes me, and in the exuberance of
my feelings I remember that my wife
told me, when I left home, to go to
Miss Laura Jones’ and buy her a new
bonnet, and also to go to Levy’s or
Lohustcin’s and get some homespun
aud some calico to mnko tho children
some clothes to go to school in. I did
so; but above all things, she told me
“not to forget to go to Miss Addie
McClellan’s and buy some school
books for the children.” I did all
these things, and when through with
her purchases, I begun to feel pretty
blue. My crib had to be re-covcrcd,
so I went to Watt’s and bought a few
pounds of nails.
Then I counted over ray remaining
money, aud the sum total was four
ten cent pieces and two nickels. But
imagine, if you can, the extremity of
my distress, when, as I was starting
home, sad and weary with the troubles
of life, and with an [empty pocket-
book, I saw Pliny Heath walking up
tho street at a pace which indicated
he meant business. Ho seemed to be
In n hurry, ns though ho was looking
for me and feared I would get ofl be
fore he could catch me.
These things I have learned from
experience. To-morrow I will tell
you 80me things I have learned from
The sanitary condition of the town
has been kept good during the sum
mer. There should he no relaxation
or want of diligence in still keeping
the town in first-class sanitary condi
tion. The health of the town is of
the first importance, and money ex
pended in this direction, Is money
well expended. It is easier to pay
the small taxes necessary to carry on
this work, than it is to foot a big doc

Mr. William Miller, the contractor,
lias made a very handsome improve
ment in front or “Oakland,” his resi
dence on Monroe street. He has put
in a beautiful fountain. The rim
of the fountain and center, is orna
mented with choice specimens of
rocks and ores, brought by Mr. Mil
ler from Nacooohee Valley. The
specimens are very handsome, and
are arranged in a most tasteful man
ner. The fountain adds much to the
already pretty home of contractor
Miller. YVe hope to see these foun
tains and similar Improvements mul
tiply in Thomasville. Shrubbery,
grasses, fountains, flowers and trailing
vines, add much to the appearance of
homes, making even the humblest
attractive. Some otjo has said “that
’tis homo where the heart is”; wo
paraphrase, by saying: the heart
should be where the home is, and
that home should ho made beautiful
