It would nppear hardly necessary
that we should again remind the citi
zens of Thomasville who inaugurated
the laudable movement for a grand
reunion of the -citizens of Thomas
county, that much is yet to be done
to make that occason a success. Thom-
nsvillo cannot afford a failure. Her
reputation for public spirited hospital-
ty is at stako. She must prove her-
eelf equal to the oecnaiou, and we
know she will. It should be borne
in mind, that in addition to the thou
sands of our own citizens who will be
here, there will also be present large
numbers from surrounding counties.
These people are coming here at our
special invitation, and.they must be
entertained. There should not be a
shortage in anything; everything
should be in profusion, and of the best.
It will not do to invite people here to
a naked feast. The committee on
subscriptions have done well, but
there is much more to be done. These
gentlemen are giving their time and
attention to the enterprise freely, and
they should meet with every possible
encouragement from all classes of our
citizens: for we tSke it that all are
alike interested in the success of tho
occasion and the reputation of Thom-

and pretty, are always attractive, and

The above from the News and
Courier, Charleston, is very compli
mentary to the charming little South
ern octrees. Cora Van Tassel ranks
.with Maggie Mitchell and Lotta in
her soubrette roles. A St. Louis
paper, speaking of the popular actress,
“Cora Van Tassel is a dashing and
attractive little soubrette. She jump
cd into popularity. Unlike nine-
tenths of the alleged soubrettes who
are starring around the county, Miss
Van Tassel is young, pretty in face
and graceful in figure. She reminds
one of Maggie Mitchell in her prime.”
Go to the opera house on Monday
night and you will see a good play.
