Public Speaking: A goodly number of voters assembled at the court house last Tuesday night where they were entertained by speeches from C.E. WILLIAMSON, N. YARBROUGH and J.M. GAISER, candidates for county judge; followed by Dr. R.D. REDDEN and J.G. HAMILTON, candidates for treasurer; B.W. SWITZER, for assessor, and W.O. HAMILTON, candidate for county attorney. Everything passed off pleasantly and harmoniously.
