That was a graceful act in the third Vice-President, W. J. Wood, of the L. & N. R. R., in presenting $500 to the Memorial Association to complete the Confederate Monument at Montgomery. The whole of Alabama is proud of Vice-President Wood and are glad to claim him a native of the same.

Hon. W. J. Wood
The Montgomery Advertiser pays a very just and fully merited compliment to W. J. Wood Third vice-President of the L. & N. R. R. Mr. Wood is one of the very best selections to fill the position he now occupies that could possibly have been made by the railroad. In the first place Mr. Wood has the confidence of the influential men of Alabama, he is an Alabamian himself, a fair minded, conservative fellow who will never stoop to do a wrong. Another thing about Billy Wood is that the highest and best political influences would draw a point a little just to accommodate a good fellow. In fact we feel like he is one of us and not the representative of a foreign corporation, or a man who would do Alabama the least injury. There is one thing certain about the man and that is those who know him best would serve him quickest; this alone is a strong card in his favor.—Huntsville Mercury.
Our friend, Judge W. J. Wood, Third Vice President of the L. & N. R. R. is a most liberal and patriotic gentleman as well as a most successful Railroad man. Last week he gave the Ladies of the Montgomery Memorial Association $500 to be applied to the monument fund. Judge Wood fills the position so long occupied by Col. E. B. Stahlman, and no man of his age stands higher in Railroad circles than he does. Possessing plenty of brains, he knows how to use them and we hope he may live long to enjoy his well won success.—Tuscumbia North Alabamian.
