A large and enthusiastic meet ing was held today at the Court House for the purpose of pro moting theTupelo-Pontotoc- Toe copola and Fulton Electric Rail way. This proposed road has been discussed for the past two months and on subscription lists circulated by Mr. V. C. Kincan non, liberal amounts has been placed by the leading business men. At the meeting today, W. T. Reeves called the meeting to or der and the name of Chancellor J. Q. Robins was placed in nomi nation for Chairman and that of Senator, C. E. Franklin of Pon totoc for Secretary. Upon tak ing the chair, Chancellor Robins delivered a practical speech upon the great advantages to be de rived by the people living along the line of the proposed route. He offered the prophecy that the property along the line would en hance in value and th^t the cost of the building of the road would never be felt by those who had their money in the capital stock. The speech of Chancellor Robins was enthusiastically received by the audience. Hon. C. E. Franklin was called on and on behalf of Pontotoc, he stated that his people were neart ily in favor of the road and that they would subscribe to the full extent of their ability to secure it. Mr. J. W. Furr, who, with Dr. Wingo, represented Toecopola, also assured the audience that his place was anxious to secure the road and that the citizens were ready to aid in a more sub stantial way the promotion of the enterprise. Dr. C. D. Mitchell of Pontotoc, also delivered an enthusiastic speech, and while he admitted that his place still had some peo ple who were not progressive, yet. it had a sufficieut number of enterprising citizens to do its full share towards building the road Other speakers were, Hon. W. S. Sheffield, V. C Kiucannon, C. D Mitchell, Geo. T. Mitchell, Richard DaLee and B. T. Clark all of whom lent encouragement to the enterprise. On motion of W. T. Reeves, the chair appointed the following committee to solicit subscriptions: Pontotoc—C. E. Franklin and Dr. C. E. Mitchell. Toecopola—J. W. Furr and T. J. Wingo. Bissell—Frank DaLee. Tupelo—V. C.

Our town was treated to a genuine game of football on Thanksgiving day, the first real game of college foot .i, ever played here. A good crowd as out and felt well repayed for gi g, even though the majority of the s e tators did not thouroughly un iers". d the fine points of the game. The Re posing team was from Franklin A emy of Columbus, Miss., and from ir own school here. It was the first tune that our s had ever lined up against eleven pi.--.y ers. there being not enough large ooys in our school to provide a scrub team, and considering this fact they made a splendid showing. The only adv rse criticism to be made upon tneir p ay ing being nervousness at the start of the game, running too high and :re quent failures to catch punts. The score of 11 to 4 in favor of Franklin Academy does not give me true standing of the teams. The first touch down was lost at the very begin ning of the game, seemingly thro g.i stage fright, it being as we said bei <<• the first time our eleven had ever 1 id ub before an opposing team. E j ether inch of ground was liotly cor. ---- ten ami lor the remoindei of the g .n \ the ball was Kept almost constant!.', n Columbus territory. The playing of our ooys throughout was clean anu g gressive. The field goal kicked by i inour was the Ieature of the tr .e. though the playing of Kincannon, Long ' and Rogers deserve special me:iti< . It is to be hooed that Mr. Newell .;nd Lhe principal of Franklin Academy wii make the playing ox a game bet'-’.oen theirscnool teams an annual Thanks giving event, and may they all be played on Tupelo soil.
