As soon as he gets over the rush of customers he will fill it with his usu al announcement. IN THE CITY. St. Thomas Church. The congregation of St. Thomas Episcopal church hope to have the new church building ready in time to hold Christmas services in it. The stained glass windows of this church will be very handsome. Lost and Found. The party that lost a ladys’ reticule or purse during the post week, will hear of something of advantage by applying to Policeman \V. I’. Coyle. Shoot To-Morrow. The Thomasville Gun Club will give a shoot to its friends to-morrow, at its new grounds between the Mag nolia and Linton Mill roads. Negro Immigrants. ' Five extra coaches of the Atlantic Coast Line came in Saturday night attached to the Savannah train. The coaches contained, includingabildren, about five hundred negro emigrants moving from South Carolina to the “Lone Star” state. Police Court. William Lcggins, Joe Dixon, Ed ward Johnson and Simon Leggins, were before his honor yesterday in the police court for firing crackers in the city limits. The first two plead guiltv and were let off with the cost, $1. Willie Davis was fined $fi and costs for failing to obey street summons. Returns to Thomasville. Mr. A. L. Loeb, of Chicago, who came here early in the fall, but who, for the past several weeks, has been making a tour of Florida, has return ed here for the balance of the season. It is a compliment to Thomasville for him, after making a tour of the popu lar resorts in Florida, to choose this place iu preference to other places during his sojourn south. Cows on the Streets. The city ordiuance, prohibiting cows running at large on the streets, went into effect Sunday. The terri tory embraced by the forbidden dis tricts is large, aid owners v ill do well to see that their favorites are kept away from it. Marshal Spair says the law will be enforced without fear, favor or affection. Cows caught iu the forbidden districts will be im pounded and sold if not paid out. The Macon Construction Company. This company, which built the Georgia Southern & Florida railroad, has made financial arrangements to continue the line from Macon to Birmingham, Ala. This will open lip a new and direct line from Birmiug ham and points West to Florida. As it is likely that Thomasville will soon have a connection with the Georgia Southern & Florida, we have an especial interest in the new connec tion. Special attention is called to the local of Miss Laura Jones She has a beautiful lot of holiday goods. You will find something there suitable for all ages and conditions. Unusual taste lias been shown in the selection of the stock. Everything is pretty and appropriate, and prices will he found as cheap as the cheapest. Call on Miss Laura before your purchases are all made. Mr. L. Simmons, lower Broad street, has a splendid stock of canes, finished in oxydized silver handles and natural wood. Some of them arc quaintly carved. If you would carry or' send away a souvenir of Thomasville, you canuot make a bet ter choice than one of these canes. Mr. S. J. Cassels has something new, novel and beautiful iu the way if Christmas and New Year cards. They must be seen to be appreciated. The pewa in the new Presbyterian church will he in place by next Sab bath, and the congregation will use the auditorium of the handsome building. It Was a Scoop. “The news of the sale of the Narrow Gauge railroad was read with interest yesterday morning. “Outside of those connected with the deal and the transfer of bonds and securities the sale was unknown. “Mr. Jackson said yesterday: “Of course, I know who the purchasers arc, for I woiked up the deal and found the purchasers myself, hut no body’ else knows who they are, and 1 am absolutely bound to sccrcsy in the matter.” “As suggested in yestcrday’s.Chron- icle, it is probable that nothing will be done before the auniial incctimr of the company, which is less than sixty days off. “The buyears will devote the enter- veniug time to making investigations into the character and condition of their new property, and in laying their plans for improvements and ex tensions. “The charter of the company ex tends already to Thomasville, and there are a number of desirable con nections and extensions which arc easily within the range of possibility. Keep your eve on the narrow gauge.” I jThc above, from the Augusta Chrouicle, will be read with interest by our readers. It is another sign board pointing to Thomasville. Our people should he alert and alive to the importance of securing—before the railroad map of South Georgia i- made up—such connections ns will nrotect their interests. Deals and developments arc being made which will make and unmake towns. Thotn- nsvillc must look after her own inter ests. If she doost not the mistake can never be remedied. Abie is the time for action. A Sweet Little Letter. Some days since, Reid * Culpepper gave notice that their store had been made headquarters for Santa Claus. They have received a sweet letter, written bv a little girl six years old, addressed to the patron saint of the children, in their care. TIicTimeh- Entkki’imse ventures to cherish the hope that, the letter may induce Santa Claus to grant what has been asked him, anil for fear the venerable old fellow may not otherwise know what is expected, the letter is here given. Tiiomasvii.i.e, Dec. 25, 188!). Dear Santa Claus:—As it is almost Christmas I have decided that I would write to you and tell you what I want for a Christmas present.

Every day demonstrates the wis dom and courage of Grover Cleveland in launching his famous message against monopolists and trusts, and in favor of tariff reform. The people are waking tip to the fact that they are being robbed by the monopolists Touching thu changes going on. the Telegraph says: Among the many recent converts to the democratic idea of taxation are some men who tormcrly held high position in the republican party. There is President Eliot, of Harvard, Hugh McCulloch, Secretary of the Treasury under two republican Presidents, and Wayne MaeYeagh, Attorney General under President Garfield. Last Saturday night Mr. MaeYeagh delivered in Boston, before the reform club, a powerful address in favor of the reform of the tariff on the lines advocated by Mr. Cleveland, Mr. Carlisle and all the recognized leaders of the democratic party. The Phila delphia Record says of his effort : “While Mr. MncVengh’s opinions on the present tariff system have not been concealed, this is, we believe, the first time that he has publicly pro claimed them. So we go. The time is rapidly approaching when the only remaining defenders of tariff robbery will he its monopolistic beneficiaries and its subsidized advocates.” Cleveland. Grover Cleveland docs not drop out ol sight. At a banquet in Boston, on Thursday night, Mr. Cleveland deliv ered a notable speech. He spoke, as he always does, to the point, and with great force and Lcrsencss. Mr. Cleve land has the happy taculty of saying the right thing at the right time. No public man catches and holds the at tention of the masses more firmly. The people hang on his words, for the reason that they always mean some thing. His appeal for a pure ballot, and an adherance to the principles of tariff reform, were clear and ringing as a bugle call. And the people heard. Grover Cleveland will be heard from in 1892, “See here, John,” said Mrs. Smith, laying aside her paper, ‘ this ball playing is barbarous. I never heard of anything so cruel.” “What’s wrong, Mainly?” “Why, the paper says that nine men were whitewashed seven times in less than two hours. I'd think the lime in the whitewash would cat all the skin off them. I’d rather be tarr ed and feathered, and dear knows that is bad enough.” “I don’t believe you have been to Sunday school. You’ve been iu swimming. Your hair is wet ami your trousers are himlpart foremost.” “Well, you see, mar, I was ruuuin’ so hard to Sunday school that my head got all wet wid perspiration and then 1 fell down, and I was going so fast I turned over in my trousers.” Baby oneSolidRash Uulr, painful, blotchnl, malicious.

Cured by Cuticura Our eldest child, now six years of age, when an infant six months old was attacked with a virulent, malignant skin disease.

SMITH, Att’y at Law and Ex-Pros. Att’y, Ashland,O. Boy Covored "With Scabs. My hoy, aged nine years, has been troubled all his life by a very had humor, which appeared all over his body in small, red blotches, with n dry white scab on them. Last year lie was worse than ever, being covered with scabs from the top of his beau to his feet, and continually growing worse, although lie hail been treated by two phosieians. As a last resort, I determined to try the Cuticura Remedies, and am happy to say they did all t hat L could wish. 1 ’sing them according to direction, the humor rapidly dis- anpearod, leaving the skin fair and smooth, and neiforming a thorough cure.
