U. D. C. Convention
Historical Evening
After two days of continuous
business and social functions,
the United Daughters of the
Confederacy, Mississippi Divis
ion, assembled Wednesday eve
ning, May 7th, at .8:30 o’clock at
the Comus Theatre for their an
nual Historical Evening. Mrs.
Rose, the very brilliant presid
ing office has, during her presi
dency, introduced many attrac
tive features in the work of the
United Daughters of the Con
federacy, but for none is she
more to be praised than for mak
ing “Historical Evening” a
feature evening in the work of
the organization.
This was the last night in the
history of Mrs. Rose as president
of the Mississippi Division. She
goes out of office, not by desire
of the Division, but by constitu
tional limitation, as the consti
tution provides that no officer
shall hold office longer than two
years in succession.
First on the program of the
evening was a Scottish Reel, or
folk dance by four little girls in
Scottish constume.
Next on the program was the
introduction, or explanation of
the purpose of the evening, by
Mrs. Rose, who said in part:
“History is the witness of the
times, the torch of truth, the life
of memory, the teacher of life,
the messenger of antiquity.’
History is the life of any nation,
and races have passed into utter
oblivion because they left no
written, or even legendary his
tory. History is the corner
stone of the great organization
of the United Daughters of the
Confederacy, and its preserva
tion is the real reason for its ex
istence. They are giving their
time, talents, money and hearts
devotion to perpetuate the name
and fame of the Confederate
Soldier, and the glorious history
of the Southern Confederacy.
“For many years the South, so
conscious of her rectitude, so
firm in the knowledge that she
was constitutionally and eternal
ly right, and so proud of the
heroism of her sons, did not
realize the necessity of vindicat
ing her acts, but it behooves us
now to turn on the searchlights,
and let the world know the truth
of her history. The Mississippi
Division United Daughters of
the Confederacy have establish
ed the custom of having a His
torical Evening during its annual
Convention, presenting each
year a program sparkling with
the gems of our Southern litera
ture and history, illuminated by
the light of truth and justice.”
Miss Alice Quitman Lovell, of
Natchez, Historian of the Divis
ion, was introduced and her talk
might be signally marked as a
call to high ideals. “Believe in
i • ii- - __ ~ £
numanuy aim m me
your undertaking. There was
never a life lived, a height at
tained, but can be reached by
another. Keep your heart free
from prejudice, keep in touch
with today.” These were the
opening words of a paper deal
ing with the history of a people
whose lives were molded by the
above principles. By special re
quest of Miss Lovell, and for
reasons all her own, her address
is left off the minutes of the
Convention. Her closing watch
word, however, was, Aim
High!” The address was very
much enjoyed by all.
Miss Lovell was presented with
a shower boquet of white peonies
by her home Chapter, through
Mrs. Rose. She said ‘‘I can
hardly express my thanks for so
beautiful a gift”
Next on the program was a
vocal solo by Miss Irma Harper,
who graciously responded to an
encore. This was followed by
an essay by Mrs. R. 0. Perkins
and the prize essay by Miss
Ouida Barnes, both of which
will be found in another part of
this paper.
Several other interesting talks
were niade, end the evening was,

possibly the most important and
enjoyable of any during the con
vention, and thoroughly enjoyed
by the large crowd in attendance.

Chattanooga, Tenn., May 12.
—In commemoration of the
bloody battle at Chickamauga 50
years ago, Chattanooga an
nounces perfection of the plans [
for entertainment of the United j
Confederate Veterans and the
Sons who will hold their 23rd
annual Reunion May 27-29. High
officials of the G- A. R. state
that Chattanooga’s expenditures
for entertainment and amuse
ment, etc., will be on a more
lavish scale than was ever neces
sary for their meetings, even
surpassing the high water mark
at Los Angeles.
It is expected in Chattanooga
that upward of 12,000 veterans
will De present, an or wnom win
be tendered free lodging and
meals at Camp Alexander P.
Stewart. Some fellow with a
love for statistics has figured
that this means the service of
144,000 free meals in the course
of four days. The requisite num
ber of Government tents and cots
have been loaned by the War
Department. The year 1913 will
perhaps mark the last pilgrimage
of most of the veterans of 1863
to ground made sacred by the
heroes of the Blue and Gray on
the heights and in the shadow
of Lookout Mountain.

thanks to the good people of

If Your Liver Get* Lazy You Need a
Liver Tonic, Not Merely a Laxative
for the Bowel*
Many people take a simple laxative
when their liver gets sluggish rather
than take calomel, which they know to
be dangerous. But a mere laxative
will not start a sluggish liver. What
is needed is a tonic that will liven up
tie liver without forcing you to stay
at home and lo.e a day from your busi
ness. . . ,
You have such a tonic in Dodson s
Liver Tone. Dodson’s Liver Tone must
be all they claim for it because they
guarantee it to take the place of dan
gerous calomel and agree to hand back
the money with a smile to any person
who tries Dodson’s Liver Tone and is
not satisfied with the relief it gives.
Dodson’s Layer Tone is a harmless
vegetable liquid with a pleasant taste,
and is a prompt and reliable remedy
for constipation, biliousness, sour
stomach, and the other troubles that
come from a torpid liver.
Clifton’s Pharmacy give it their per
sonal guarantee and if you will ask
about this guarantee ydu will protect
yourself against imitations that are not J
guaranteed. Large bottle of Dodson’s
Liver Tone is BO cents.
Stonewall Jackson.
Fifty years ago to-night there
fell mortally wounded at Chancel
lorsville one of the great captains
of the English-speaking races.
Lee, who called Stonewall
Jackson his strong right arm,
once said that he would have
won Gettysburg if Jackson had
been there. Be that as it may,
the almost uninterrupted vic
tories of the Army of Northern
Virginia ended when Jackson
passed away. Chancellorsville
marked the flood-tide of the Con
federate arms. Two months
later came Gettysburg, and from
thence on to Appomattox Lee’s
forces, despite all their marvelous
courage and tenacity, were never
again invincible.
Jackson’s place in military his
tory is unique. Most great repu
tations were made by long years
of service. His career was com
pressed into a scanty twenty
two months, from* that dav in
July, 1861, when Lee pointed to
him “standing like a stone wall”
at Bull Run, to the early May
day in 1863 when he marched his
corps around the front of Hook
er’s army, smashed in its right
flank and gave the Confederacy
its most brilliant victory, only to
fall under the fire of his own
A terrible partnership was that
between the Cavalier and the
Puritan; between Lee, who em
bodied the chivalry of Virginia,
and Jackson, who was a direct
spiritual descendant of the men
that fought with Cromwell at
Naseby, In all crises the two
men seemed to fight with a single
brain and a single purpose, desti
tute alike of the jealous and
intrigue that all but wrecked the
Army of the Potomac.
Jackson presents a strange,
appealing figure on the pages of
history. He was as gentle and
gracious as Lee, as silent and
taciturn as Grant, as daring and
audacious as Stuart or Sheridan,
as relentless as Sherman, and
wifVi if all fhprp wac an inf-pnsitv
of religious fervor that belonged
to the seventeenth century rath
er than the nineteenth. The
war to him was a holy war. He
went to battle with a prayer on
his lips, and he went from bat
tle to give thanks to God who
had crowned his army with Vic
Appealing from his native sod
In forma pauperis to God,
“Lay bare thine arm—stretch foith
thv rod.
Amen!” That’s Stonewall’s way.
Even the bullets that struck
him down he regarded as provi
dentially directed by a definite
Divine purpose. There is no
more mendacious phrase than
that of "a born soldier," but
here was a man who was beyond
question a born soldier—a soldier
who hated war, who was dazzled
neither by ambition, nor glory,
who fought for principle and
principle alone, and whose mili

Green Will Aviate In Cardui
Flyer at Chattanooga.
Chattanooga, Tenn., May 12
Confederate Veterans going to
the Chattanooga Reunion this
month will have Ian opportunity
of deciding for themselves what
it feels like to have a war aero
plane fly over a military camp.
Johnny Green, the famous avi
ator, has been employed by the
Reunion Entertainment Commit
tee to make three flights in his
70 horsepower war aeroplane,
“Cardui Flyer No. 2,’' over the
Parks in which the Confederate
Veterans will be encamped. The
cost of the flight is co-operated
in by the Chattanooga Medicine
Co., with the idea of helping to
entertain visitors during the Re
Military men agree that the
battle of Chickamauga might
very well have ended differently
if war aeroplanes had been in
use at that time. The Veterans
who are to be the guests of the
city of Chattanooga in May, will
have ample time to discuss this
intez-esting question, as they gc

The following is clipped from
an exchange:
■A man entered a street car,
tendered the conductor a dollar
bill in payment of his five-cent
fare. “I’m sorry,” said the con
ductor,” but I cannot change a
dollar bill.” “Well I’m sorry,”
said the passenger, “for I have
nothing else except a five-dollar
bill.” “Oh, I can change that

Sydney Smith once made an
elaborate calculation as to the
way people apportion their time
in the course of a long life. When
he was seventy-two he remarked
to a girl he met. “Do you ever
reflect how you pass your life?
If you live to be my age, which
I hope you may, your life is
passed in the following manner:
An hour a day is three years.
This makes twenty-seven years
sleeping; nine years dressing;
nine years at table; six years
playing with children; nine years
walking, drawing and visiting:
six years snopping ana mret
years quarreling.
