We never depart from that standard, ^ There's no need telling when you'll need ^OPi^pt Reliable Prescription service , INMIND. Bristling facts in Hair i^nstes, for 25 ceat^^ to 11.50. D, INGRAM CO. City Drug store Tlie JV^e ifiiontractecl because in the course of centuries grew a-desire for shorter names, hence Boston. Boston was incorporated October 24, 1870. The following comprised the board of commissioners who applied for the charter: B. I, Stone; A. B. Carson, ]. X. Long; J. J. Hatchell; Th\s. Adams, A\ that time David G. Cotting was Secretary of State. R. L. McWhorter was speaker of the House of Representatives and John J. Newton was clerk . of House. We havx here a splendid free school in chargo of Prof* W, E, Nichols, assisted by an able corps of teachers , is about 175 pupils in attendance; all the English branches are thoroughly taught. The discipline though kind, is firm and decisive. We hare four practicing physicians, though on account of the healthy location of the town their services are not very much in demand. The town has excellent artesian water though it has no system of water works in yet. The water is free to everyone who goes o^sends for it. There is no town in Southwest Georgia that has a brighter future in store for it than Boston if our citizens will all pull together for the good of it; encourage enterprises to come here and offer inducements which will cause them to come. A few small f^to-ries of s«toie«»4cind woiild%ive the town an impetus that nothing else will, and what helps one will help us all. The growth of Boston has been steady and the contractors Forster and Feltham no sooner get one building completed when they commence on another. One enterprise that is most needed now is a planing mill and variety w^orks, as anyone wishing to build has to buy material in another town, and money spent - there does our town no good, what we want to do is tb keep^ as niuch money as possible~£tt()wme. Our citizens are kind and hospitable and always read}' to accommodate desirable citizens, and we for the whole people can say that this class of people are always welcome. The business of the town has Merchant & Farmers Bank is a home institution owned by bur own people capitalize^l at $50,000. M. R. Mallette is ^the president and J. M. Jones vice-president and caskrcr. safe old-Olir business men are solic^ progressive men. Among them are The Comfort Trading Co. with a paid in capital of $35,-000. Mr, B, M. Comfort is the president and D. E. McDonald vice-president, and C, H. Carson secretar}- and treasurer. They do a large supply and fertilizer business, and in addition to this have a lari^c cotton ginnery. They are now contemplating building a hand |iome brick store two stories high with basement when completed will be the handsomest.building-in town. They f have already had ' the plans made and the br.ilding when erected will do credit to a larger town. Mr. George Feltham is the architect. J -Í Way &Q<3. j merehani^s and turpentine operators, occupy a handsome building at the corner of Main and Jefferson streets, and do quite a large business. The hardware store of F. C. Ivey & Co. 'is next door and of which firm J. G. Burney is manager, anything in the line of hardware, glass crockery and farming implements can be found there. Up stairs in the same building are thé dental parlors of Fam-brough & Moody, The Boston Teleplmne Exchange of wliich J. Av. Fambrough is manager. They have over 90 phones in operation. Next to the exchange is W. J. Miller's barber shop. Next to that is The Times office. The other part of the second story is occupied by Horeb Lodge No; 281, A. F. &-^Jk^ M and the 'f M.J<ush|p chapter R. A. M. The other merchants in the town are as follows: Ansley & Parrish, general merchandise, Mrs. H. C. MasSey, miílin-ery." M, L. Cook '& Co. General Merchandise. J. W, Taylor, General Merchandise. J. B. & W.J. Brooks, General Merchandise. City Drug Store. W. L. Mardre, tancy groceries. E. W.

Lnndon, general merchandise. S. B. Zeigler & Co., general merchandiiie. In addition to those business houses we have se\ era saw mills in ovir vicinity which every month pay out large sums of money to their hai-M-h which is spent with our mefJ chants. We have three g()Dc^ churches with large memberships. The Baptist church u in charge of Rev. D. H. Parker. The Methodist church is in charge of Rev. H. Cjones. The Presbyterian church is in charge of Rev. W. H. Mc-Meen. Boston is situated on the fine of the A. C. I.. R. R., in Thomas county, and is 12 miles east of Thoniasville which is the county :Lite of this county and is 14 miles west of Ouitman which is the county site of Brooks county. The farming section around Boston cannot be surpassed in any sectTjn of Georgia. Our farmers are self-supporting and enterprising. They ftre adopting the im proved methods of farming which is evident by the large quantities ot improved farming implements they have purchiis^ in the last few years. This is the greatest pear shipping point in Georgia. The Le Conte and Kieffer pears do well in this section and annually bring thousands of dollars to our section. There has been bought he e since Sept. 1st, almost 60(0 bales of short staple cotton which in round figures has brought about $240,000. There has been about 800 bales of long staple bought.. In addition to this about 1500 barrels of syrup has also_^been sold. There are very few montlisA in the year that our leading, farmer's do no|; have something to*^ sell. It % a common sight to see several two mule wagons loaded with home cured meat on the streets at one time. The increase in real estate values has been phenomenal it has in- m some mstances O/ creased over 100 The business of the town in the last few years has increased over 50 No better index of a town's prosperity can be found than an increase in postal receipts. The increase in sales of stamps and stamped paper for 1902 over 1901 was $291. 43. The increase in the number of money orders issued 1902 over 1901 was 353 orders. In addition to the farming interests here,, we have lumber and turpentine industries, which pay out yearly thousands of dollars, the greater part of which is spent with home merchants.
