Bright, jovial aud cheerful in disposition,
ho was uot long in becoming acquainted
wi tit our people, and many fast friend
ships woro formed. Though quito a
young man ho always took a doop < nt cr

Stato, and soon became kuowh - lu politi

Democrat. As a political worker ho
was reckoned among tho vory boat in tho
oounty. His ability and inlluenoo soon
became recognized boyoud tho bordors
of his own county, and, in 1802, ho was
appointed Assistant Journal Clork of tho
IIouso of Representatives in Washing
ton, D. C., under Spoakor Chorlos F.
Crisp, of Georgia. For four yearn ho
discharged tho arduous duties of tho
ofllco with conspicuous ability. His
knowledge of parliamentary law was
frequently laid under tributo to his supe

difllcult questions. Ho was a favorito

vigorous and onorgotio manhood, hoing
only thirty-eight years old. Wo prodiot
for him a brilliant and successful busi

two candidates reooiving tho highest
number of votcB in tho first. Mr. Pratt
made tho second race against tho then
incumbent, ono of tho most popular mon

tho only timo ho has ovor boon a candi
