Pontotoc Correspondence
The Messrs. Carr have commenced the manufacture of brick on an extensive scale.

James Garman, one of the oldest citizens of the county and town, is at the point of death.

Mr. E. C. Bolton, widely known as one of our substantial citizens, is recovering from his recent severe illness.

Prof. Gladney is successfully teaching a large class in elocution at the Slack’s Hall, and we are looking forward to a treat, at an early day, of some good readings.

The mass meeting which was held here, last Saturday, was one of the largest gatherings of the people we have had in this town for many years, and harmony and good feeling were prominent characteristics of the occasion. Relief men were out in force and elected members of their order chairman and secretary. A new Democratic Executive Committee was organized, with W. R. Gilmer, chairman, and Capt. J. D. Fontaine, secretary. A primary election was ordered to be held the 23d day of August. Candidates for the Legislature did not address the people, but were conspicuously present. There can be no doubt from the present outlook, that Hon. C. B. Mitchell is the people’s choice for Representative.
