devoting their efforts chiefly to
the task of Hotting the Smith
right before the world and ear?
ing for the interests of the vet?
erans who fought for the
Southern cause. They seek to
teach the true history of the
War of the Sixties; to promote
pension legislation in the South?
ern States; to build homes ami
to increase the comforts and '
add to the attractiveness of the
homes that have been built for
Confederate veterans. They
honor the memory of every pa?
triot who wore the gray and
they mnrk their graves ami
build monuments to commem?
orate their deeds of valor: and
they are instilling the same no
hie spirit and lofty sentiment
the Same love of country und
revet ein e for I he memory of
its defenders into the hearts
of the rising generation, to he
transmitted to other genera?
tions.
The Qovornmout at Wash?
ington provides well for the
Federal veterans. It has built
splendid homes for them, one of
which is only a few miles from
Bristol, It pays them liberal
pensions, and it erects monu?
ments to (he heroic dead. All
of which is right and just. But
what of the brave soldiers of
the South, who for four years
fought against three or four
times their number? The duly
of honoring the dead and ear
illg for the living has developed
Upon the Southern States und
upon individuals. In the per?
formance of this duty, in which
a great section once laid waste
ami a great people once impov?

found u sweetlj Rolemn pleas?

the Confederacy have had an
important part.
We are reminded of those
tilings by the announcement
that the Virginia Daughters of
the Confederacy will shortly
bold their annual convention
in Bristol. The Bristol Chap?
ter of that patriotic organiza?
tion earnestly desired this year's
convention for their city and
they worked hard to secure it.
They are to be heartily com?
mended for their public spirit
und cordially congratulated up?
on the success of their efforts'.
They should now have no diffi?
culty in the way of securing
the means necessary to enter?
tain the convention.
It is understood that the
Daughters of the Bristol Chap?
ter, after assessing themselves
a considerable sum, have failed

dent Wilson personally address
od Congress in joint Bession to?
day, nr^in^ legislation to raise
$100,000,(KK) a year additional
revenue through internal taxes
in meet a treasury deficit
threatened by the con 11 let in
Europe.
Tho President told Congress
ttiat ho discharged a duty
which ho .wished with all his
heart ha might have been spared
but which ho performed with
out hesitation or apology, be*
cause of the danger in present
circumstances to create a "mo?
ment's doubt as to the strength
and Buflieieney of the treasury
of tin' United States."
Congress listened attentively
to the address. Immediately
upon its conclusion the legisla?
tive machinery was set in mo
tion to carry its recommenda?
tions into elfeet. Chairman
Underwood called a meeting of
the Ways and Means Commit
tee to perfect an internal reve?

REMEMBER ~Y()UR LAST
DOSE OE CALOMEL?
You probably recall lite had
after effects of the calomel more1
than the sickness you took it
for. N'ou need never again go
through with being "all knock?
ed out for u day or two by calo?
mel."
Next time your liver gets
sluggish and inactive, we urge
that you go to the Mutual Drug
Company for a bottle of Hud?
son's Liver Tone, a splendid
vegetable liquid medicine that
will start your liver as surely as
calomel ever did and with none
of the nftor-effects of calomel.
It is absolute!) harmless both to
children and adults and de?
mands no restriction of habits
I or diet.
A large bottle of Hudson's
Liver Tone costs only fifty cents
and the druggists who sell it
guarantee it to take the place
of calomel, and will refund your
money if it fails in your case or
I if you are not satisfied.
The Progressive Candidate.
Editor Herald Courier:
1 was greatly surprised to see
in the Herald Courier today
statements from one '1'. 1, Hay
tor, who professes to he a Pro?
gressive and says he was a dele?
gate to the Progressive COnVen
tion at Bristol.
1 was at the Progressive con?
vention at Bristol as chairman
of the Progressive party of Wise
county, elected bv a mass meet
ing. mid signed the credentials
of every delegate of that party.
Mr. Hayter appeared in that
convention without Progressive
I credentials ami represented
himself to bo one. We found
lout lie was a bogus Progressive
and we ruled him out of the
convention, as wo did every one
of bis kind who did not have
credentials.
Now, if .Mr. Hayter wishes to
meet me in any part of the
Ninth district and discuss the
question whether we have a
Progressive candidate for Con?
gress in Mr. J. L. Bose, of
Abingdon, as well as political
questions generally, let him do
so or bold bis peace.
