GEN. C. A. EVANS
As Commander of Confederate Veterans.
Re-union Meets in Memphis
Birmingham, Ala., June 10.? With
the selection of Memphis as the place
for the next re-union and the election
of Gen. Clement A. Evans, of Georgia,
as commander-in-chief to succeed the
late Gen. Stephen D. Lee, the United
Confederate Veterans adjourned their
annual convention late this afternoon.
The selection of the place of meeting
aroused great rivalry hetween Memphis
and Atlanta, these two cities being the
only ones put in nomination.
Gen. Clement A. Evans, the new
commander-in-chief, is one of the most
loved men in the army. He is a native
of Georgia and born of North Carolina
and Virginia Revolutionary parentage.
He was a graduate of the Georgia law
school and began the practice of law at
1!) years of age. He was elected judge
of the county court at 22 and State
senator at 25.
The civil war commenced while he
was senator and, although he was ex
empt from military service, he joined a
company in his county in January, 18G1,
and began his military career. Ifc was
first elected major of the Thirty-first
Georgia regiment and then promoted to
colonel. Gen. Evans succeeded Gordon
when he was promoted to major general
and again succeeded Gordon in command
of the division. His service was in the
Army of Northern Virginia. He par
ticipated in all the battles fought on the
soil of Virginia, Maryland and Pennsyl
vania. In command of his division at
Appomattox he made the last fight of
the war after the surrender because he
had not received notice of the truce.
He has been active in the United
Confederate Veterans, having attended
all re-unions except one. He was com
mander of the Georgia division for 12
years with the rank of major general,
succeeding Lieut. Gen. Gordon as com
mander of the Army of Tennessee de
"Health Coffee" is really the closest
Coffee Imitation ever yet produced.
This clever Coffee Substitute was re
cently produced by Dr. Shoop, of Ra
cine, Wis. Not a grain of real Coffee
in it ?'ither. Dr. Shoop's Health Coffee
is made from pure toasted grains, with
malt, nuts, etc. Really it would fool
an expert who might drink it for Cof
fee. No 20 or .'50 minutes tedious boil

doctor. Sold by J. M. Philpot.
The Editor's Fight.
There cannot be much satisfaction in
"goin' around and lickin' the editor"
when the latter not only makes copy
out of the encounter but pictures him
self as the hero as well. The following
pen-picture is taken from the editorial
columns of an Iowa journal:
"There was a blow. Somebody fell.
We got up. Turning upon our antago
nist, we succeeded in winding his arms
around our waist, and by a quick ma
neuver threw him on top of us, bring
ing our back, at the same time, in con
tact with the solid bed of the printing
press. Then, inserting our nose be
tween his teeth and cleverly entangling
his hands in our hair, we had him."
Nu Need of Suffering from Rheumatism.
It is a mistake to allow rheumatism
to become chronic, as the pain can al
ways be relieved, and in most cases a
cure effected by applying Chamberlain's
Pain Halm. The relief from pain which
it affords is alone worth many times its
cost. It makes sleep and rest possible.
Even in cases of long standing this lini
ment should be used on account of the
relief which it affords. 2.r> and 50 cent

I'm the best pal that I ever had,
I like to be with me;
I like to sit and tell myself
I often sit and ask me
I f I shouldn't or I should,
And I lind that my advice to me
Is always pret ty good.
1 never got acquainted with
Myself till here of late,
And 1 lind myself a bully chum,
1 treat me simply great.
I talk with me and walk with me,
And show me right and wrong,
I never knew how well myself
And me could get along.
I never try to cheat me;
I'm as trustful as can be,
No matter what may come or go,
I'm on t he square with me.
It's great to know yourself and have
A pal that's all your own;
To be such company for yourself,
You're never left alone.
You'll try to dodge the masses,
And you'll find the crowds a joke,
[f you only treat yourself as well
As you treat other folk.
I've made a study of myself,
Compared with me the lot,
And I've finally concluded
I'm the best friend that I've got.
Just get together with yoo?\self,
And trust yourself with ;ou,
And you'll ho surprised how well your
Will like you if you do.
