Considerable sensation was created

consummation of two business trans-actions.
Mr. John T. Potts bought from
Stroud, Moffitt & Co., the old Moun

northeast corner of the Square and
Main Street, for the sum of $3,300.
Stroud & Co., bought out the livery
business of Houchin A Biles. This
sale included the stable on the South
side of the Square, eight head of
horses, and all of the vehicles used
by Houchin & Biles in their livery
work. Houchin & Biles will contin
ue to run a sale and feed stable at
their old stand on East Main Street,
but will do no livery business in fu
ture. Both of these stables were w el
stocked with horses and vehicles, and
the consolidation gives Stroud
Co., the best livery equipment in this
section of the state. The considera
tion in this sale was oetween seven
and eight thousand dollars.
