Editor Timca-Enterpri*e: A few days since, an elderly lady came into my office and said she had seen a pamphlet containing a scries of letters which l wrote for the Times-Enter prise, and she wished to know something more definite about the advantages of the place as a winter resort. She had some thoughts of going to Los Angeles, Cal. I gave her a picture of Thomas- ville and its surroundings, told her I had been to California, and had visit ed nearly every southern resort, and that on the whole I preferred Thom- asvillc to them all. I told her that the best evidence of the satisfaction to visitors which Thomasville afforded, was the fact that for seven or eight years past T had met large numbers of the same visitors every year. The lady concluded that she would go to Thomasville, provided I would he her escort, to which I cheerfully consent ed. I well remember the first place of amusement f ever attended. It was in the town of Georgia, Vermont, and the amusement was a circus, was about eight years of age. The circus was about two miles distant, and (lie hoys in the neighborhood had all gone. I ashed my father if I might go, he said "no,” and with him that was the end of the matter. But on this oeeasion he relented. I went sighing and sobbing to my .task, not daring to ask a second time. Fina’ly, my father said, “Do you want to go verv much? you have no money.” don’t care for that,” said I, “I can hear the music.” “Well, go,” said lie, “and get all the good yon can.” started, hare, footed, “across hits,” and if lightning was ever put into a boys heels, it was put into mine. I was not long in covering the distance, All the crowd were inside, and, not having the 25c for admission, I sat down on a stone to enjoy the music. And it was music to my ears! A whole hand ! Soon the door keeper saw me, and said, "Boy, come here. Have you got any money?” "No, sir,” said I. “Well, you may go in,’ said he, and in I walked, as proud ns if I had had a gold mine in my pocket. I expect to meet that circus man in heaven, for all good and kindheart- ed men go there, where I shall not fail to thank him for his kindness toa poor, pcnnyless boy. This little inci dent has actuated me many a timo, when I have given laughing gas exhi bitions, with chemical and philosoph ical experiments, and seen a lot of ragged little hoys around the door without a penny in their pockets. “Go in, take off your caps and keep still.” The inlltieucc and example of a good deed. This is the season of good cheer. Our streets and stores arc crowded with ladies making their Christmas presents. I venture to say that in the city of New York alone, a million of dollars is spent in Christmas pics- ents every year. Every one receives something, and every one gives according to their means. A snow storm has just commenced, ntid as it comes from the cast, it lo> s as if it might he a big storm. G. Q. Coi.tox. LEARNING A TRADE. The number of fine rigs on the streets increases daily, and the faces of our liverymen grow brighter. Those that go out after the festive quail find the dry weather a great drawback to sport. That Jackson street crossing at the depot ought to be put in better shape. Married a 10-Year-Old Girl. Memphis, Tens', Dec. 14.—William H. Bailey and Sallie II. Wallace, of Waterford, Miss., were married to-day at Bolivar, Tenn. Both parties arc wealthy, and an odd legal fight is promised. The girl is less than ten years old, wears short dresses and seems childish in everything save an unyielding determination to assert her marital rights. Immediately after the ceremony both parties were arrested and are being held in jail. Just what can or will be done in the premises is not known. No verdict in the Cronin case yet. It may, after all, turn out to be a mis- trial. This would be unfortunate. Boys Should Learn a Trade and Then “Stick" to It. 80 you have decided on learning a trade. Good. Learn it.

SMITH, Att’y at Law and Ex-l'ros. Att'y, Ashland,O. a good painter. Good. Go right in to the business to win. Having made up your mind, don’t halt for a mo ment. Be determined to make the best painter that ever lived in the United States. This may not he an easy matter to do, but then there is nothing in this world worth learning that is obtained without effort. Remember you have the making of yourself in this matter. Mother nml father have given you a good constitution, skillful hands, capital eyesight and glorious youth— splendid capital to begin life with. Just think of it. Here is a big world all of yourewn, if you choose to take it, and with your health, youth and strength to start up will). Boy, you are a lucky dog, and if you don’t win and become a tip-top painter before you are twenty-five years old, it will he all your own fault. It’s worth something more than money to ho. at the top of your trade. Every one can’t be a good work man. You can if you only try. It is no trouble whatever to he a “Botch.’ It is as easy as Being a tramp. “Botches” often become tramps. Now you are not going to ho a “Botch. I sec by the sparkle in your eye that you don’t admire “Botchcraft.” That’s right. Bo a man, ami form a resolution to "learn well and thor oughly nil about your trade that is worth learning.” This is (lie wuy to get at the top of the heap. There is lots of room for you at the top. You may get there just as well as anybody else if you lmt strive. Aim high, and though you may not bring down an eagle you may pluck some of the best feathers. The best fellow to help you is your self. Trust him. He will always stand by you, and if you do him jus tice, he will prove a good and lasting friend. While at work, “work.” You owe it to yourself to bo industrious and steady; to your employer to study his interest, which is, in n measure, your own. Never idle away a mo ment that you can place to your employer’s interestduring work hours. Read up all that you can pertaining to your trade. You will find thiy interesting, and in time you will rather read concern ing your trade than of scalping Indians or wild cowboys. It won’t hurt you to join the 5’. M. (!. A. One or two nights spent in the society rooms will do you good, and as there is generally a good supply of books and magazines there, you will not he as "clever” as I think you are, Baby oneSolidRash Hii'ly, painful, blotchrri, mnlicloiiM.
