Memorial to the Women of the Coafed.
The following resolutions were unan
imously adopted at the Louisville 16061
Convention, United Confederate Vete
Whereas, at our Reunion of 1904, our
federation turned over to the Sons, the
sacro?1 duty of raising the funds for the
Memorial to the Women of the Confed
Whereas, in so doing we never relin
quish^! our deep and abiding love for
the cause,or our intention to aid and as
sist it by every means in our power;
Whereas, we have clearly shown this,,
hy our appointment of a committee to
co-operate and by the work, which this
commit to and many other veterans in
all parts of the South, have done dur
ing the past year; and
Whereas, it will ever be our most
earnest desire to see this tribute paid
to our glorious Women and we are
most anxious to further co-operate
with and give substantial aid to our
Sons in the performance of this sacred
Therefore, Be It Resolved:
1st. That each Camp of the United
Confederate Veterans, immediately af
ter the adjournment of this Convention
and the return home of its delegates,
shall appoint a Committee to actively
canvass its respective cummunity to
raise funds for this Memorial to the
Women of the Confederacy, to which
nohle, worthy an 1 iust object this fed
eration has repeatedly and solemnly
pledged itself and its comrades, -
2nd. That in case any Camp does not
take action within one month by ap
pointing this Committee, it shall then
become the duty of its Commander to
make appointment of such Committee.
If no action is taken by the Comman
der any member of the Camp who is
enthused with that high sense of his
duty to this holy cause, and desires to
honor our Godlike Women, is urged to
personally take charge of the matter,
secure the endorsement of his local
Camp or its officers and make such col
lections as he can from his community.
3rd. That all funds collected under
Resolutions one and two, shall be de
posited in some Home Bank?at inter
est?to the Chairman of the United
Confederate Veterans of Co-operation,
(Gcn'l C. Irvine Walker, Charleston,
S. C,) and that he shall be promptly
advised of such deposit.
4th. That the above resolutions are
not intended to be obligatory upon such
Camps as have already taken similar
action or have already contributed to
this fund $50?or more.
5th. That each Camp is urged to en
deavor to raise from its community, as
its quota, at the very least, the sum of
Gth. That all Camps shall ' complete
this work by January 1st, 1906, and on
that make a report of the results
achieved, to the Chairman of our Com
mittee of Co-operation, (Gen'l C. Irvine
Walker, Charleston, S. C.)

Pair of Big Shoes.
What is supposed to be the largest'
pair of shoes ever made in this coun
try was turned out recently in a Nashua
shoe faetory. The size of these shoes
may he imagined when it is known that
the weight is eighteen pounds for the
pair. Each shoe is twenty three inches
long and seven and one-half inches in
the widest place.
Every detail is as carefully attended
to as in an ordinary first-class shoe, but
because of the enormous size it re
quired several weeks to turn them out.
Special lasts were made, and nearly all j
of the work, except the stitching,
which was done on the usual machin
ery, was done by hand.
As near as can be figured the size of
the shoes is 40, as compared with the
average ordinary man's shoe. The en
tire cost of manufacturing them was
about $50. They were made for a ne
gress who lives near Atlanta, who is
known for many miles because of the
size of her feet.? Boston Globe.
Sickening Shivering Fits
Of Ague and Malaria, can be re
lieved and cured with Electric Bitters.
This is a pure, tonic medicine; of es
pecial benefit in malaria, for it exerts a |
true curative influence on the disease,
driving it entirely out of the system.
It is much to be preferred to Quinine,
havinp none of this drug's bad after-ef
fects. E. S. Munday, of Henrietta,
Tex., writes: "My brother was very j
low with malarial fever and jaundice,
till he took Electric Bitters, which
saved his life. At Laurens Drug Co.

One Dollar Saved Represents Ten Dot*
The average man does not save to
exceed ten per cent of his earnings.
He must spend nine dollars in living ex
penses for every dollar saved. That
being the case he cannot be too careful
about unnecessary expenses. Very of
ten a few cents properly invested, like
buying seeds for his garden, will save
several dollars outlay later on. It is
the same in buying Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. It
costs but a few cents and a bottle of it
in the house often saves a doctor's bill
of several dollars. For sale by Lau

"Oh, I AM SO TIRED!"
Is heard daily from old and young, rieh and poor. Did you ever stop and consider
the cause of this remark? We will venture to say nine cases out of ten are
caused by improper digestion. This, or other symptoms of Indigestion such as
nervousness, nausea, heart-burn, sour stomach, flatulency and despondency,
should be a warning to you who are in danger of having indigestion, the great
est enemy of American health to-day, fasten its merciless fangs on your health.
Remember, "A Stitch in time saves nine", and a bottle of the celebrated
Ketlum's Sure Cure for Indigestion has saved untold misery to people in many
parts of this broad land, by curing them permanently of this miserable disease.
Yes, not like the pepsin digestives that help for a time, but cures permanently
by causing the digestive organs to perform their functions. Nature being such
a great rectifier of its own ills, with the assistance of this powerful medicine,
gives you a healthy stomach and removes indigestion and its symptoms perma
