Attention, Veterans!
You are requested to be at Taze
well on June 3rd at 9 a. m. to partic?
ipate in the Memorial service of the
day. In order to expedite the busi?
ness of the camp, and the comform to
the program of the Daughters of the
Confederacy. You are advised to
come in autos if you have one; if
not, make arrangements with those
who own cars to accommodate you.
Surely there are cars enough in
Tazewell to grant this favor to the
old Veterans. And the owners of the
cars should consider it a duty ami
take pleasure in bringing you to
Tazewell as the schedule time of the
trains does not meet the program of
the day, so as to enable you to par?
ticipate in the exercises of the day.
The Daughters are preparing to give
you a splendid reception and to make
this a day worthy of appreciation.
Please remember the hour, 9 a. m.,
fast time, and be here promptly.
Commanding Browne-Harman Camp,
May 20, 1919.
Memorial Day Notes.
Any person who has not been so?
licited and wishes to contribute to
the Veterans dinner to be served at
one o'clock, June 3rd, in the Masonic
building, will please send contribu?
tions there or to Mrs. A. G. Riser, or

nity to have their cars on Main street
a t9:30 o'clock for transportation of
the veterans to and from the ceme?
John C. and Robert 'S. Hopkins,
owners of the Hopkins Pharmacy in
Radford, which they recently pur?
chased, suffered a loss of several
thousand dollars in the lire which
swept that town last Monday. The
store building in which the drug store
was located was burned entirely, and
the large stock of drugs and sun?
dries was also consumed. It is said
that the boys will have a complete ne'
loss of $3,000 to $4,000. They had
recently ordered handsome fixtures
for the store, which arrived in Rad?
ford the day before the fire, but hud
not been delivered. The Hopkins
boys are undecided as to future plans.
Ellen Mary, the young daughter
of Mr. und Mrs. J. W. Whitley, 01
North Tazewell, had her right leg
amputated on Thursday of last week
in a Bluefie'.d Sanitarium. This news
came as a surprise and shock to
many of the little girl's friends and
and to members of her parents' fam?
ily and friends.
For sometime the little girl had
complained of pain in her leg. She
had to stop school and Dr. Witten
was called in ami put on a plaster
cast, (letting no results it was de?
cided to take her to Bluefiold for an
X-Kay examination. The surgeon
found finally that the thigh bone
was fearfully diseased, and that the
only hope was amputation, whlctl was
done promptly on Thursday after?
noon of last week. Late reports of
the little girl's recovery are encour?
aging and barring complications, she
will soon be weil. It isn't easily seen]
where the well known law of compen
sation comes in here, but it is there,
and the afflicted parents and the child
will run across it somewhere on the
jou rnoy.
The sympathies of the entire com?
munity go out to Mr. and Mis. Whit?
ley and Ellen

As to who was responsible for put?
ting on tho Salvation Army drive and
fixing the date, etc., tho chairman
wired Mr. E. Lee Trinklc, district
chairman yesterday for information.
His telegram in reply says: "My un?

months ago. Drivo originated by
friends of the army." Signed, E. Lee

that the Salvation Army, as an or?

the drive itself, and is not open to
the charge mildly insinuated, of but?
ting in, when it should have waited
for a more opportune time when the
field should be clear.
