VETERANS AND SONS.
A Plan of Co-Operation-The Joint
Committee Submits a Few Prac
Headquarters U. C. Veterans.
New Orleans. La.. March 15. 1904.
General Orders No. 6.
i. The lieutenant general command
ing directs that careful attention be
given to the following "Joint Circu
lar" from the committees recently
created by the U. C. V. and U. S. C.
The joint committee on co-opera
tion between the veterans and their
sons, as announced to the United Con
federate Veterans in general orders
303, and the United Sons of Confed
erate Veterans in general orders 2.
To all comrades of the United Con
federate Veterans and of the United
Sons of Confederate Veterans. greet
ing! A loving, heartfelt greeting!
Trusting that it may result in bringing
to a complete success the object for
which the committee was constituted:
"the closer association of the two con
federations:" the committee addresses
this joint circular to all veterans and
The committee asks that earnest
consideration be given and prompt ac
tion be taken.
All comrades of the United Confed
erate Veterans and of - the United
Sons of Confederate Veterans must
appreciate the vital importance of the
movement to both organizations. Vi
tal to the, veterans because their
ranks are so rapidly thinning that the
time is near at hand when the sons
must take their place if the federation
and its great objects are to be per
petuated. Vital to the sons, for the
inspiration to succeed the veterans
and carry on the work must be ab
sorbed from their sires. the actors
in the great drama, which revolu
.-ionized our country.
What is the great object which must
be perpetuated? The memory and
true history oi the Confederate strug
gle for independence! The United
Confederate Veterans have other mi
nor .aims, but that is supreme. The
veterans must teach and the sons
must learn "the glorious heritage
which belongs to them.' The heritage
is* undoubtedly "glbrious," but what
good, practical good, has it by,which
the sons may be made better and
nobler men and truer patriots?
Let us not deceive ourselves and
our comrades. Unless there is this
benefit, some great good. and it is ap
oreciated. the veteraus will teach in
vain, and the sons will turn a deaf ear.
The committee firmly believes that
there is. and commend its reasons for
so believing to all comrades and sons.
It would be unnecessary for the
committee. or any other body of sane
men, to disavow any disloyalty of the
south to the union. under wvhich we
live and oi which we are no.w proud:
to disavow the intention of stirring
r'p any factional strire; to deny the
mnost honest acceptance by the south
ern people of the result of the war.
The peaceful and law abiding attitudes
of all ex-Confederates since 1865 and
their devotion to the glorious upbuild
ing and sustenance of the country,
North and South, East and WVest,
would give the lie to the assertion, or
even insinuation that any man of the
south desiires the resurrection of a
What shall be perpetuated oi the
Confederate struggle? What, shorn
of all attendant surroundings, did the
Confederates fight for? We answer
emphatically: Liberty and the right
of self-government, which is guaran
teed by the Constitution. and was
acheived by our forefathers. Oti these
noble principles ist our government
founded: on them are builk the free
dom and honor and dignity of our
blessed land. Therefore. the veterans
in inculcating, and the Sons in learn
ing, the principles fought for by the
Confederates are but keeping alive the
glorious principles which should gov
ern our country today.
"is it death to fall for freedom's right?
He's dead alone that lacks her light."
The "glorious heritage" is- the
matchless courage. fortitude and en
durance which the Confederates, the
sires of the sons. displayed during
that tremendous struggle in defending
their principles, which developed an
almost godlike manhood.
Therefore. let every son be proudc
of his Confederate sire. and let his ex
ample be an inspiring emulation to
him in fighting the battles of life. Let
it ,ma him a higher and nobler man
and a better patriot. Devoton to the
memory of the Confederate struggle
iS not cOnsistent with the highest
dev.)tion to our country. which grew
a perfect whole out of the clash of dis
We urge most earnestly that the
veterans pave the way and that the
sons walk in it: that the veterans
open their arms and that the Sons re
spond to the embrace. And when the
veterans have biviuaced on death's
eternal camping grond. may their
loving sons stand ready to honor
their memory and the memory of that
magnificent record, which should im
mortalize those gray warriors who
upheld the starry cross.
The joint committee makes a few
practical suggestions to carry this
,inion into effect, all authorized by
general order 303.
To the United Confederate Veter
ans: All organizations should stimu
late in every way the formation and
sustenance of Camps of United Sons
of Confederate Veterans, and encour

as provided in clause i.. par. ii. gen
eral order 303, and notify State Divis
ions of United Sons of Confederate
Veterans: at all reunions extend to
e sons the privilege of the floor
and at the opening ceremonies, espec
ially, let them meet with you, and let
them take part in the speaking and
other exercises therein.
Cainps: Invite the sons (of camps)
to all your meetings and social gath
ings. particularly those where his
torical matters are pr6sented. Change
your constitutions so that sons, mem
bers of United Sons of Confederate
Veterans, may - -ome men1bers of
your camp with such privileges as you
may determine; right to vote or not,
right to speak or not, right to contri
bute to your treasury or not. Under
general'order 303, you can give them
"such privileges of membership as
each camp may determine." But re
member the proviso-that such son is
a member of some duly organized
camp belonging to the United Sons
of Confederate Veterans. Be liberal
in dealing with them, and by loving
kindness make them feel that they
are the sons of the veteran's camp.
To the United Sons-of Confederate
Veterans: Under general or.ders 303,
you have the right given you by the
highest authority of the United Con
federate Veterans, to which all subor
dinate organizations must, and we feel
sure will, cheerfully and lovingly as

were and are still "privates." the

part of the sons may perhaps (in the
opinion of the committee) we do not

Brilliant Newspaper Man of. Char

Charlotte, N. C., April 3.-Isaac
Ervin Avery, city editor of the Char
lotte Observer and former vice con
sul at Shanghai, was found dead in
his bed yesterday afeernoon. There
was still some hope for him when his
friends went to his room, but he
never gained consciousness and life
was soon extinct. It was presumed
that Mr. Avery had been suffering
from insomnia and while in that con
dition he took morphine. The pa2
ticlularly sad feature of the death of
the brilliant young newspaper man was
that he was engaged to be married to

Proper Treatment of Pneumonia.
Pneumonia is too dangerous disease
for any one to attempt to doctor him
self. althotugh he may have the proper
remedies at hand. A physician should
always be called. It should be borne
in mind, however, that Pneumonia
always results from a cold or from an
attack of the grip, and that by giving
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy the
threatened tatack of pnmonia may
be warded off. This remedy is also
used by physicians in the treatment of
pneumonia with the best results. Dr.
WV. J. Smith, of Sanders, Ala., who is
also a druggist says of -it: "I have
been selling Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy and prescribing it in my prac-'
tice for the past six years. T use it
in cases of pneumonia and have al
ways gotten the best results." Sold

Germany. The curative properties of "SEVEN BARKS" are ex

remedy for most all ailments and diseases of the

"SEVEN BARKS" was introduced in America in x872 by Mr. Lyman Brown, of New
York City,a chemist of national repute, who in the early'7o's spent nearly a year in Weis
baden before he could secure the highly orized formula. Although "SEVEN BARKS"
has never been advertised in newspapers, yet thousands of American families are never
without a bottle, while hundreds of physicians and druggists are recommending and pre
scribing it. By this slow process of personal recommendation "SEVEN BARKS" is today
one of the most popular and most successful remedies on the American market. The
reader has no doubt heard of it.
The undersigned purchased the formula and sole right of distribution in the United
States. He realizes that every family desiring continuous good health should always
keep a supply on hand, therefore strenuous efforts will be made to introduce it in every
home where it is unknown.
