TORTVMVg., - 1 GresnvUle Miss. Several prominent gentlemen of the city have put on foot a move to build a race trade and fair grounds for Greon vlllo. Mr. .Ino. Cannon, one of the promoters of tho enterprise, was ap proached on the subject and aaked alwut it. Ho suid: "Yob, we arc trying to raiHe monoy to build a fair grounds, and so far have been very successful. This coming week a committee .select ed by tho promoters at a meeting held Thursday nighl will call on most of the business men of tho city to solicit stock." 'What havo you estimated the cost of t.u: grounds?" "Ten thousand dollars to complete it, and put on a fair the next fall." "Are you meeting with much encouragement?"' "Well, yes. Still there are many who should take more stock than thev do, 'as the fair will prDve a money maker for the busi ness men of tho city." From Mr. Cannon wo learn that the track would be built on Mr. Sam Fin lay' land, near the courthouse. This will make it more valuable to the clty, and it will make it convenient for all who wish to attond. Wo hope the gentlemen will be suc cessful in their efforts, for a fair and races here each year will encourage the raising of hotter stock and the pro duction of other 'products lxsides cotton Again It encourages works of art, which int -rests almost everyone, and brings to ie city thousands of peo ple who )tl)eilise would not confu or spend a dollar ..imong' our merchants. Let the work ilv pushed and, the fair for l'.KU be lnnjunced, so that all who intend to mil an exhibit can start now to making preparation. I ITEMS OF THE FUTURE.

The census of Greerville, which has just ben received, gives the city a population f -l5fi,lltKtand the-.hunonofi being the largest pity in' the state. This The Times predicted forty years ago, and it 'has lived to see it. come true. - The railroad will oon be a thing of the past. The air sh'ips are lie fastest, cheapest ani safest means of travel. While the whalebaok barges on the river have a monopoly on the freight business .owing to their capacity and low rates. Mr. Tom 7?ood,.Tr.,'who succeeded his father to the office 'of chancery, clerk, is giving the people e&ttro satisfaction. For 48 .years his father has held the o'fiee end .ortly at his.oivn request (due to old age) is he out today.

President .Tack Connally,of the DeSoto oil mills, it is rumored, will marry daughter of a New York millionaire next spring. This is surely a joke, as for tho last 0 years we have lived in Greenville, and these reports each sprinir bud out like the leaves of the trees. Still, if true, we heartily con gratulate toe old man. At an early hour this morning fire broke 'out on one of the upper floors of Chas. Hafter & Sons' wholesale dry goods building. The department re sponded promptly, but was unable to get a stream higher than the twenty fifth story. The resevoir on top of the building proved inadequate, and all the stock on the upper floors was con. sumed. The building, a modern fire proof, sustained very little damage. .m'I 111 i,il!tT'' '"j !ll1.;,,n'(' ' ' An ex-editor from tne suburuantown of Leland, who has been confined in the incurable wards of asylums here and at other places for over thirty years, escaped .yesterday, and, had it not been for timely interference, would have drowned himself in the river. During all these years this poor man has "been laboring under the mis apprehension !f b at the free silver issue is not dead. To tho people of the pres. ent age of education and enlighten ment it seems stirange that such crazes as this and the Salem Witchcraft should get the better of men. Nevertheless both are undisputed historical facts. ft is with deep regret that ve chrou- icle the death.f tho venerable H. T, Crosby, who was for many years man. aging editor of The Times. This good old man had been enjoying remarkably gooiH health of late, and was inthe best of spirits; bttt while, passing down Wellington avenue yesterday morning, in company with his grandsoo, he was approached by one of his old'time sub scribers, who tendered him "that little balacce." The shock was too great for one of nis years and he was at onee stricken down with apoplexy. A sher iff's posse, with bloodhounds.is after the culprit, and, if eaught. will be tried for criminal negligence and no doubt re ceive tho extreme penalty of the law. Secretary of State J. M. Cathin has issued letters of incorporation to the Orientsil and Occidental Air Tfaviga tion Co., of Greenville. The company begins with a paid-up capital -of one billion dollars, and propose conducting a line of air ships from Greenville, via. Manilla, HoDg Kong, St. Petersburg and London, around tho entire globe, which will make connection with other lines at all principal points. Thy pro pose making a speed of one theusand miles per hour, by the aid of the teceuit inventions. with which they will equip thoir ships. This is tho fastest time yet attempted for any considerable dis tance, but the backei-sio the enterprise assure The Times' man. that there "is no daubt but uliat they will do all s,hc;y cSuiin.
