Death Of Capt. Hubert.

Bright Young Man Well Known in Northwest Georgia.

Captain Edgar Hubert, of the United States army, died in Cuba last Thursday, of fever. He was buried on Cuban soil with military honors. Captain Hubert is well remembered in North Georgia, especially at Cedartown, whence he went to West Point. He had been living with his grandfather, Mr. William Peek, at the time he entered the competitive examination. Captain Hubert was a son of Dr. Hubert of Warrenton, Ga. He was appointed to West Point by Dr. Felton from the seventh congressional district in 1876, defeating a large number of young men in the competitive examination, which took place in Cartersville, graduating high in the class of ?80, he was assigned to the Eighth regiment as second lieutenant, and on promotion until several years ago he was made captain. While stationed at Chickamauga, in the spring, he visited his aunt, Mrs. J. Waddell, and other relatives. He was a bright young man, and at an early age exhibited wonderful mathematical powers. In this branch he had few equals. His family and friends are deeply grieved at his unexpected and untimely death.
