RESOLUTIONS OF RESPECT
To the Memory of Col. Hltlley, ly
IMrenor. tif the Maury National
It is fitting that men should
recognize and respect the memory
of a man of true worth and manly
bearing, and that they should record
their esteem of such lives in some
lasting form. To those who knew
Col. J. W. S. Ridley, his life and
character stand as a conspiclous
example of that higher manhood
and citizenship which all ages and
all races should conspire to emu
In life he attained a success which
was rar above mat oi most men.
Endowed bv nature with a clear,
stronc intellect, a kind heart, and
an unbounded energy, his life work
has wrought a most enduring monu
ment to his memory.
He transacted the business of his
life upon a high and upright plane.
In his dealings with men he was
always just and honorable, and his
renresentations were as good as his
He attained success, and he de
sorved it. It was but the product of
those sterling qualities of heart ana
mind which so conspicuously
marked his life
As a financier, he was wise and
far-seeing, and he worked out his
nlans with the exactness of a
mathematician; and his advice
and counsel were always listened to
with highest consideration.
As a citizen he was always inter
ested in the welfare of his country
and was ever ready to lend his aid
in nil nroner undertakings. In
hours of financial trouble he demon
strated to Maurv County that he
was ready and able to help avert the
ruin which threatened its citizens.
He was one of the first to lend hi.-
assistance to the establishment of a
solvent bank when all other institu
tions of the kind in Columbia had
been overwhelmed, and as 1 resi
dent of the Maury Bank it Trust Co.,
he labored with untiring energy and
zejil until his failing health forced
him to retire.
While be practiced economy, he
was liberal in his dealings and gen
erous and unselfish towards his fid
low men. Above all. he was a chris
tian gentleman. While his character
was marked with a quiet and hi
c.oiniinr dijrnitv which commanded

fable to rich and poor alike, and
ever recognized honest worth where
ever it was found

press our esteem and commendation
of the splendid life and character lie

tiin whole eniintv of Maurv have stif
fered a loss of a most esteemed friend
and citi.en :
That, lillinir the full measure of fit i
zenship, and true to every trust in life,
his work is linished and he has gone
from the walks of men to a higher
sphere of being. His influence shall
live amongst us. We will cherish his
memory, and may we emulate his ex
