SONS OF VETERANS
UliOED TO ORGANIZE
An Appeal to (lie Sons uf Confederate
To the Sons (if Confederate Veterans.
Comrades: At a meeting of a special
committee appointed by the South Car
olina Division United Sons of Confed
erate Veterans, which was held in Co
lumbia June 3rd, the undersigned were
appointed a sub-committee to prepare
an address to those in South Carolina
who have the right to join the organiza
tion known as "United Sons of Confed
All male persons are eligible to mem
bership in this order who are them
selves of good moral charscter and
who are the direct descendants of men
who were regularly enrolled in the army
or the navy of the Confederate Stales
of America, and who were killed or
died in the service or were honorably
disc barged therefrom or who served to
the end of the war.
It seems that it should not be neces
sary to urge upon one whose ancestors
had a pari in the glorious record for
courage, endurance and patriotic devo
tion to duty made by the soldiers and
sailors of the Confederacy, the duty to
join an organization designed t erpel
uate the story of their heroic de? and
to preserve for the future histon. the
information upon which shall be predi
cated a truthful history of the motives
which led them to war and of their con
duct in tin' prosecution of that war.
The Society of Cincinnati, the Sons of
the Revolution,- the Aztec Club and
similar organizations are designed to
perpetuate the memory of those wdio
served their country in the cause of
freedom and the maintenance of the
honor and integrity of the government.
Membership in these organisations has
come to ho a badge of honor much
sought after by those entitled to it.
The day will come, aye! it. has already
come, when to be known as a son of a
Confederate veteran is a distinction
which brings (he proud blood to the
cheeks of him who may claim it. As
tho years go by and the world knows
more and more of the marvelous his
tory of the greatest armies that ever
fought under any banner this distinc
tion becomes more and more honorable.
Is it not, (hen, a simple duty of those
who inherit the fame of the Confed
erate soldier to take all necessary steps
lo perpetuate that fame and to do
honor to his name'.'
It has been determined to organize a
central camp to be known as Camp
South Carolina, United Sons of Confed
erate Veterans, so that those who live
in communities where no local camps
are established may join this general
camp. Indeed, anyone may join it. It
is desired that there shall be a grand
revival of interest in this order and
that at the re-union which is to be held
in Greenville August 8th, there shall be
a great gathering of IIa? Sons of Vet
erans. To this end wo earnestly urge
the organization of local camps and the
reorganization of those which have
been allowed to fall into a condition of
disorganization. If it bo impossible to
organize or reorganize these camps
then let all Sons of Veterans join the
central camp, Camp South Carolina,
but above .;ll l"t there be a great out
pouring of the Sons of Veterans at
Groenvillo whether they be members of
any camp or not.
Comrades, shall he call in vain?
Shall we appeal in vain to your pride
of ancestry'.' To the veneration for
your forefathers? To your admiration
lor courage, fortitude and devotion to
duty? Are you unmindful of the won
derful heritage of honor and glory
which is yours, and are you unmindful
of the sublimity of the duty which de
volves upon you to perpetuate the fame
of those who won this undying honor
We do not believe it. ,Vo have faith
that the spirit which nade your sires
illustrious as patriotic soldiers, as he
roes, burns and lives in your breasts
and will manifest Itself in the determi
nation to do the duty Which lies before
you. Lot us all meet at Creenville Au
gust 8th, 1908, prepared in spirit and in
enthusiasm to put our organization upon
the highest plane of usofulnessand elli

Dr. L. iM. Roper In Washington.
Washington, July 13.- A Laurens
man conducted a revival in Washing
ton some weeks ago which attracted
considerable attention at that time and
the results of which are still talked
ubout. He was Dr. Lewis Murphy
Roper, pastor of the First Baptist
church in Spartanburg, but a native of
Laurens and a graduate of Furman
University. Dr. Roper conducted a
meeting in the Fifth Baptist church in
Washington, which ranks considerably
above the First in influence. The pas
tor of the church is very fond of Dr.
Roper, with whom he became acquainted
while the latter was pursuing a course
of study here in the Columbian Univer
sity, which has now become the George
Washington University. Mr. J. J.
Darlington, the leader of the Wash
ington bar, is also a great friend of Dr.
Roper, and is a member of the Fifth
Baptist church. Mr. Darlington is a
graduate of Erskine College and has
been for a number of years regarded
as the foremost lawyer of the nation's
The members of the church at which
Dr. Roper preached twice a day for
several weeks are anxious that he re
turn in the future and give them the
benefit again of his superior power as
a revivalist and evangelist.

Over Thirty-five Years.
In 1872 there was a great deal of di
arrhoea, dysentery and cholera infan
tum. It was at this time that Cham
berlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy was first brought into use. It
proved more successful than any other
remedy or treatment, and has for thir
ty-five years maintained that record.
From a small beginning its sale and use
has extended to every part of the
United States and to many foreign
countries. Nine druggists out of ten
will recommend it when their opinion is
asked, although they have other medi
cines tuat pay them a greater profit.
It can always be depended upon, even
in the most severe and dangerous cases.
