For sixty years he has lived in a radius of ten miles of this place. Few men had more friemds i than this aged veteaan. He was \ highly esteemed as a Christian [gentleman and an honorable up* • right citizen. His example was "one which young men rnjght be proud to copy. He did not en gage in petty wrangles, but at tended to his own affairs. For four years he had fought valiantly for the lost cause. He had been a prominent mem ber of the Missionary Baptist Church for many years and as long as he had health and stren ght his place was never vacant.

Wood son was made sad Sunday morn ing, Feb. 11, 1:30 o’clock when the sable-winged messenger hov ered over it and whispered to the gentle grand-mother that her earthly pilgrimage was over and her Heavenly Father had need of her and commanded that she should step up higher. * Miss Lucy Bullington was born at Milam, Gibson County, Tenn. March 15, 1835. She came to Mississippi while quite youmg and at the tender age of sixteen bee me the bride of Mr. James N. Woodson. Both she and her husband pro fessed chaistianity early in life and for fifty-six years she has been a consistent member of the Baptist Church. She was ever faithful in her attendance upon divine worship. She held her membership at Wakeforest where she will be sadly missed by the entire congregration. She was always kind and gen tle to those in distress, relieving their physical wants and at the same time uttering words of teu derest symyathy. She ran with patience the race that was set before her, never faltering, though sometimes the road was rough and the storm clouds gathered thickly over head. For years she was faith ful in her duties to a suffering, inva lid husband an i after his demise she devoted herself to her child ren . Mrs. Woodson’s illness was brief but severe and very little hope was entertained from the very first. She complained of a head ache and dizziness Monday. Tuesday evening she retired early. About one o’clock her son noticed something unnatural in her breathing and upon exam ination found her to be uncon scions. A physician was hastily summoned and everything done that loving friends could do for the relief of the sufferer but all in vain, for God’s hand held the key and he alone knew the com bination. On Friday evening she rallied and rested well during the nighf. She declared herself much better and expressed a desire to sit up. She called for her breakfast and while it was being prepared she became rapidly worse. AH day Saturday she was in a semi con conscious state and thus she pass ed away. Sue leaves three child ren in this vale of tears, but only one son was with her to admin ister the last sad rites to the be loved dead. The interment took place at Wakeforest Cemetery Sunday at 4 p. in. “Sloop on doar friend, Sweet bo thy rest, In Saviour,s arms Forever blest.” May the comforting spirit of an All-wise Father rest upon the grief stricken family.

The New Dorado Now Open to the Public. The long expected, much talk ed of, opening of the White Riv er Country, between Carthage, Mo., and Newport, Ark., is now an accomplished fact; through trains in each direction on the new White River Line having been inaugurated on January 21. In connection with the Tide Water Line along the Mississippi River to the Gulf, this marks the completion of anew route be tween the Northwest and the Southeast, of great and growing importance. The commercial in vasion by the railway of moun tain fastnesses in the White Riv- Country, in Mossouri and Arkan sas, and of the lowland river dis trict of Southeastern and Louisiana has not appeared feasible until the present day. With the accomplished fact of a through line, a variety of land scape and social conditions of the most diverse character is brought to view. The products of the mine (coal, zinc, lead, mangnese, onyx and building stones—inex haustible quarries of fine marble of almost every known variety), of the forest (oak, pine, walnut, ash, cypress and cedar lumber,) farms in the valleys (cotton, and the various temperate zone grains and grasses,) and the orchards of the uplands (peaches, apples, pears, berries and the fruit of the vine,) with the sports of the chase, and of angling in lake and stream, are now offered to the enterprising who may plan a shorter or a longer abode in this new country.
