THE EIDGETVAY HIGH SCHOOL.
The People of Eidgeway are Aroased to
the >eed of Higher Education.
Eidgeway is to bare an excellent
High School. The business men of
the community held a meeting a few
days ago for the purpose of discussing
the matter, and a committee was appointed
to ascertain some suitable site
for the school. The Ridgeway Land
and Improvement Company have offered
six acres, the Ivy Bill place with
Us beautiful grove of oaks, and it is
possible tiiat the negotiations will lead
to the purchase of this property. It is
likely that the town will issue bonds
to a considerable amount. Those
pushing the matter contemplate building
a large building, securing an able
corps of teachers and in troth Ridgeway
is considering the prospects of
having one of the very best High
Schools in the State. It is thought it
will have a military feature. The
school will not be dependent upon the
immtdiate locality for students.
Ridgeway has in view bigger things
than that. It expects the school to be
attended by students from all over the
State, and that it will be a real Hign
School so that students may be prepared
for college. It is suggested that
accommodation! will be provided for
150 students at boarders.

1 The sad news of the death of Mr,

friends. For, though he had been
sick for the past two weeki, his
malady was not thought to be anything
dangerous. Sunday the attending
physician was of the opinion that his
recovery was but a matter of days,
Tuesday night, however, a change foi
the worst set in. Yesterday morning
" it was seen by his anxious relatives
' that the end :vas near and, in a few
; hours, he passed peacefully to the
. great world where all life's worries
? and turmoil have ceased.

valued employe in the office of the

Maj. Woodward'* Kamarks at Memorial
Meeting of Camp Kaibm.
These remarks of comradeship made
t by Major Woodward, on the occasion
of the memorial meeting held by Camp
Rains in honor of General John Bratton,
were by the unanimous vote of
the camp requested for publication:
A great and good man has tallen.
John Bratlon has crosied "the river
. ? -x? a il. _i. _ jj_ ^ l
in a is now resting uuuer toe suaucs 01
the trees beyond."
It is appropriate that this people here
assembled *h^nld thus publicly show
respect lo i..a memory, and appreciation
of his acts whilst be abode with
us. It is peculiarly appropriate, grsnd
old comrades, that we, his companions
iu arms, now that the frosts of many
winters have whitened our heads and
drooping form* admonish us that we
cannot mnch longer answer at roll
call, should pay our tributes to his
spleudid character as citizen and soldier,
before we too shall be called
upou to make footprints across the
"dark valley." Descended from illustrious
ancestry, who were valiant in
war and distiuguished in peace, it is
not remarkable that he was a born
leader of men, and inherited those
military instincts which contributed so
largely to his success as a G?eral, and
that at that final enactment in tke
hlnndv ti-floredv at ADDOmattox made
bim surrender th3 largest and best
orsauized brigade in the army.
Throughout those four years of unequal
contest, the bloodiest and most
unhallowed which was ever waged
against the rights and liberties of any
people, he was true and steadfast,
never falteriDg, but ever treading the
path of duty, ready stall times to strike
in defense of his country's cause; and
his name is now recorded in that grand
gallery of distinguished men, the
noblest, purest and best, wbich has
adorned the annals of history anywhere,
and it will descend until tbe
Arch Angel shall summon time to
eternity, a precious inheritance to his
county and State. The youths ot the
land have in mm an example or gentleman,
patriot, soldier, worty of their
most serious emulation, and we,
his old coarade*, rejoice to know that
it was our privilege to be associated
with him. Bat General Bratton was
also a statesman, broad and liberal io
his views, honest and above the temptations
of office, at all times guided by
principle, and only consulting the
good of his people, whom ha loved
(especially the old soldiers) with the
devotion of a father for his first-born.
The great wisdom and foresight of the
man shown in many of his epeechfs,
and articles for the paper, now that we
have seen the fulfillment of his predictions,
strikes us like emanations from
the prophets of old. Well would it
have been for us old cemrades had we
barkened to his counsels and heeded
his warnings. It was my good fortune
to know and be associated with him
from our early youth. Our ancestors
were friends aird comrades since the
days of the old revolution, and I was
raised to love this man, and revere the
name because of its glorious associa
tiODS. JfcLis tatner sac at me aeamoea
of my father in thit town in 1842, a
valued friend and a faithfu; family
physician. No efforts were thtrefore
necessary to bribg us together and
make us friends through lifa. I think
I knew him as well as anyone, and I
state to you that in ray opinion no
truer man, no purer patriot, no braver
soldier ever lived.
Gen. Brattou was a scholar,- no roan
handled a pen with more ease and
eloquence and no one dealt in purer,
cleaner English; his style chaste, logical,
convincing and free from bitterness.
As a friend in the ordinary walks of
life he was loyal, steadfast, unostentatious
and cordial. Beueath the sometimes
stern exterior of a soldier there
was a gentleness of spirit which endeared
him not only to bis immediate
! family but to all whom he cam# in contact
with, both old and yonng.
All in' all, old comrades, it may be
that we will not laok upon bis like
; again, hence we lay our humble tiibute
upon his new made grave and sefcond
the adoption of tne resolution.
