We understand that Mr. C. A. Pratt formerly of this place, intends going into the boot and shoe business at Colorado Springs, Col. Mr. Pratt lived in Evansville a number of years and was at the time connected with that branch of business, and consequently knows just about what he is doing. When Mr. Pratt went west Evansville lost a good citizen and the neighborhood an excellent family. We bespeak for him success, for he has every qualification in business probity and moral integrity to acquire it. He is a fair dealer and a man that the community can rely on in all his social and business relation, and we can cheerfully recommend him to the business people of Colorado Springs.
