FOR THEIR REAL VALUE.

The Best Bargain You Ever Made
i OW do you measure the value of a
bargain? Suppose you bought an
engine that did practically all of your
hardest work for you, sawing:, pump
ing, grinding, etc., and that sav^d
so much money that it soon paid for itself.
Would you call that a good bargain?
An I H C engine will do all that, and more.
Having paid for itself, it works steadily year
after year until, like our Clay County friend
who has used an I II C engine for six ye^re,
you will say, "My I HC engine is ihe joest
bargain I ever made." / ?
IHC Oil and Gas Engines
are thoroughly dependable, and unusually
durable. The fine-grained, grey iron cylin
ders and pistons are worked together to a
perfect fit. Ground-piston rings insure maxi
mum power from the explosion. The fuel
mixer is the most effective known. Bearings
are large and carefully fitted. No part is too
heavy to bit efficient, yet every part is amply

Cta?rcop M?kln; Elaborate
Something of the Arrangements to
Care for the Confederate Veterans
Big Attendance Expected.
Chattanooga, Tenn., April 1.?This
city is preparing to entertain the
largest crowd that has attended a re
union of the Confederate veterans and
Sons of Veterans since the organiza
tion of the association It is a matter
of history that the first steps toward
organizing the southern survivors of
ihe Civil war were taken in. Chatta
nooga. The New Orleans meeting, at
which the organization was effected,
oy the election of Gen. John B. Gor
ion commander-in-chief, resulted, in
'arge measure, from agitation started
here by Capt. J. F. Shipp, and others,
i'or an association of Confederates.
The New Orleans meeting elected Gen.
John B. Gordon to head the organiza
tion and he called the first reunion of
',he association for Chattanooga July
!, 4 and 5, 185)0. Under all of the cir
cumstances the people of Chattanooga
feel that it is their duty to exert every
effort to make the coming reunion a
br lliant success. It is certainly their
pleasure to do so.
The date of the reunion is May 27
?i> inclusive. Only two months re
main in which the work of the organi
sation may be done, but it is well un
der way. The various committees
have been appointed, and are at work
in their respective spheres. Informa
tion gathered from all Bections of the
south indicates that fully 150,000 peo
ple will be here.
The passenger departments of all
the railroads having lines entering
Chattanooga, report that already
there is much interest in the coming
j reunion. Inquiries are received every
day about rates, hotel accommodations
I und the progress of the work incident
I to the entertainment of the veterans
j and the thousands of visitors that will
be here. The head of the passenger
I department of one of the largest rail
way systems in the south, has served
I notice on the people of Chattanoogu
I that a record breaking crowd may be
The Confederate veterans met here
in their first reunion in 1890, twenty
three years ago. Chattanooga at that
time was but poorly prepared to care
: for the visitors. Hotel nccommoda
1 tions were inferior, local transporta
tion facilities poor and the people were
suffering financially from a collapse:!
boom. However, that reunion was
voted a success.
Tho Chattanooga of today was built
j since 18$)0. It is now a city of 100,000
?with tho besi of hotel accommodations
and first-class local transportation fa
cilities. It has twenty-six hotels, one
of them a modem, twelve-story buihl
ing costing a million dollars. The
boarding house accommodations are
all that are to be found in a modern
city of 100,000 population. The ho
tels, boarding houses and private
famiies will furnish entertainment
for 100,001) visitors. The restaurant
service is first class and adequate to
The Confederate veterans will b:;
camped at .Jackson park, a delightful
resort almost within the business dis
tricts of the city. This camp has been
named "Camp Stewart," in honor of
the late Gen. A. P. Stewart, the much
beloved and noted southern chieftain,
who won fame on the greatest battle
fields of the Civil war and spent his
declining years in Chattanooga as a
member of the Ch ckamauga National
Park commission. The motion to
name the camp for him was put by
Mayor T. C. Thompson, and was
Chattanooga is putting great energy
into the preparation for the reunion,
and every indication is that it will be
one of the most delightful mecCngs
the veterans have ever enjoyed.
The environments of Chattanooga
are ideal for a reunion of the Confed
erate veterans. The battlefields aro
the chief points of interest, of course,
but they are not nil by any means.
Chattanooga is a modern city of 100,
000 population, with a greater number
of manufacturing plants than any city
in the southern states, turning out
more than seven hundred different
products that go practically all over
the world. It has a number of sky
scrapers, and other modern buildings.
The climate is ideal. The mountain
Scenery is not excelled In any other sec
tion of the south. .Some years ago
Prince Henry, of Prussia, spent a day
in Chattanooga and made a trip to the
top of historic Lookout mountain.
After viewing the panorama from that
eminence, he exclaimed: "There is
nothing liner in all Europe." Every
tourist who has travelled In European
countries passes the same eulogy on
these mountains. The Confederate
i veterans, however, know what th y
] are. Thousands of them fought over
I this field, and it will be a pleasure t >
them to revisit the scenes of the car
nage through which they passed (n
For tho purpose of entertaining the
reunion on n broad scale, Chattanooga
is raising from $50,000 to $75,000.
This fund is practically in hand, an I
the various committees are rapid
closing up all contracts and rushing
the preparations to conclusion.
The Southeastern Passenger asso
ciation has granted a rate of one cc-nt
a mile each way for the reunion th?
lowest rate that is ever allowed for
any causa, _<_
