|Virginian Has High Praise of Quincy Hotel and Florida Courtesy
J. M. Weister and Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Weister, of Richmond, Va., were guests at the Quincy Hotel from Tuesday until Wednesday. They were on their return to their Virginia home, after attending the reunion of Confederate veterans held in Tampa recently.
J. M. Weister is a veteran of the Civil War and never misses an opportunity to attend reunions of his comrades when it is possible for him to do so. But the Tampa meegin he said was the outstanding event of the kind he had ever been privileged to attend, because of the unfailing courtesy of the citizens and the Boy Scouts, who left nothing undone to make the visit of the veterans of the sixies pleasant from the time of their arrival until their departure.
Mr. Weister also took occasion to compliment the management of the Quiincy HOtel on the excellence of its cuisine, saying the loval hostelry provided better meals for the price charged than any hotel he had been the guest of since leaving Virginia.

|Memorial Exercises Confederate Dead|
Services Held Over Graves in Eastern Cemetery Tuesday Afternoon
In commemoration of the Confederate dead, ceremonies appropriate to the occasion were held at the Eastern cemetery Tuesday afternoon in the fenced enclosure where an unknown number of men who wore the gray lie buried.
The graves of the heroes who for four years fought against overwhelming odds and succumbed only to superior numbers were decorated by members of the boy and girl scouts, under direction of Mrs. R. J. Love.
Ceremonies were opened with prayer by Dr. S. T. Matthews, followed by a song rendered by a quintet of ladies.
The memorial addess was delivered by F. J. Patterson, pastor of the Methodist church. Without any effort to bring to mind unpleasant memories of the conflict between the states, Mr. Patterson paid tribute to the heroism and fidelity of the Confederate soldier, who, he said, bore the brunt of the strife and fought nobly for his convictions, while at the same time speaking kindly of the soldier who wore the blue and espoused the caurse which he also believed was right. "General Grant, leader of the northern armies, was gneteel in manner and possessed the ehartbeat of a real soldier," said Mr. Patterson. "He showed this in his attitude toward General Lee at the surrender by keeping his soldiers out of sight while the Confederate stacked arms and draped them with the stars and bars."
Speaking of the matchless leadership of General Robert E. Lee, Mr. Patterson asserted he had long ago been given a place in history as one of the greatest military men of all time, but that not so much had been written about the private in the ranks whose uniform bore no other adornment than that of toil and hardships and struggle.
Sounding of taps by Robert Pinson and a benediction by D. J. Blackwell, Presbyterian church pastor, closed the services.
Mrs. M. A. Love, who took a prominent part in arrangements, announced that services would be held again next year.
|Young Daughter of Mayor Graves Bit by Snake Friday

The adder was concealed under a piece of wood.
First aid was immediately rendered by Mrs. Johnson and the patient rushed to the office of Dr. S. E. Wilhoit in Quincy.
The hand and arm are still badly swollen, but the young lady is now considered to be out of danger.

|History Quincy Boy Scout Troop Number 1|
(by a Scout)
Boy Scout troop No. 1 of Quincy has been organized now for nearly a year and a half. It started off with Mr. Russell, pastor of the Baptist church at that time, as scout master and with eight boys in the troop. The Baptist church was used as a meeting place until more suitable headquarters could be secured.
When Mr. Russell resigned and left Quincy Dr. Tisdale was quick to offer his service as master. After he had held the position for about two months Ralph Holt, and Eagle scout, came to Quincy from Tampa to visit the Embrys and agreed to help Dr. Tisdale with the troop. There were at this time 16 or 18 members in the troop, as new members had been added from time to time.
Deciding that we were becoming cramped in the Baptist church, we went in search of a good meeting place that would be permanent. We learned we could have the use of the rooms on the second floor of the little red school house opposite the Episcopal church, corner King and Adams streets, so we cleaned it up and moved in.
Ralph being an Eagle scout, know scouting from one end to the other and so of course his help as an assistant master was indeed valuable. When the council efficiency contest started we were in high spirits and came through the ocntest in first place, thanks to Ralph's help, for he was scout master now, Dr. Tisdale having resigned, being to busy to continue the work.
The summer camp for all the council was opened June 13 last year at $1.00 a day, and nearly the entire troop moved over to camp on Lake Bradford the first week and stayed for about two weeks.
During the summer no meetings were held, but early in September we were called together by Scout Master Roland Anderson, as Ralph Holt had gone away to school at Riverside Military Academy.
The troop has been going along steady since September, with only two real events, the first of which was the presentation of the flag won in the efficiency contest; the second was winning of second place at the scout rally in February. The second efficiency contest started soon after and under the leadership of Scoutmaster Anderson we hope to win the flag again for Quincy Troop No. 1.
Our troop contains 27 boys and there is room for only five more.

|Mrs. J. C. Brewer Died Thursday at Greensboro After Long Illness
Greensboro, April 26.--In the death at her home here on Thursday morning, April 21, at 1:30, there passed from our midst a real mother in Israel, whose quiet home life and neighborly helfulness has left its imprint on the entire town and community, Mrs. J. C. Brewer.
Mrs. Brewer was in her seventh-first year. She was born in Georgia, the daughter of Henry and Lamana Branson, and was left an orphan at an early age. In her early womanhood, at the age of seventeen, she united with the Baptist church in her community and during all the years was a faithful and consistent member of that demonination.
In 1881, she was married to Mr. J. C. Brewer, and to this union were born six children. One of these died in infancy, another, Oscar Brewer, died three years ago, and a daughter, Mrs. W. H. Dones, preceded her only six weeks. Two sons, H. Q. Brewer, of Panama City, and Olin C. Brewer, of Greensboro, and one daughter, Miss Jessie Brewer, of Greensboro, together with the husband and father, survive her.
The funeral services were conducted by the pastor Thursday afternoon from Greensbor Baptist church, of which she was a member and interment was made in the family plot in Providence.
While the entire community was saddened by Mrs. Brewer's going, the death was not unexpected. Just a year ago she suffered a stroke of paralysis, which had kept her confined to her room and bed ever since, and the second stroke from which she never rallied came about ten days before her death.
The entire community feels a real loss in the death of Mrs. Brewer and sincerely sympathizes with the family and especially with Mr. Brewer whose faithful, loving companion she has been for forty-six years.
All the children were present at the death and funeral, as were also a daughter-in-law, Mrs. W. O. Brewer, and children, of Macon, Ga., and a nephew, W.A. Branson, his wife and son and daughter, of Darien, Ga.
