Dangers of the Grip.
The gieatest danger from la
grippe is of its resulting in pneu
monia. If reasonable care is used,
however, and Chamberlain’s
Cough Remedy taken, all danger
will be avoided. Among the tens
of thousands who have used this
remedy for la grippe, wo have yet
to learn of a single case having
resulted in pneumonia, which
shows conclusively that this rem-
edy is a certain preventive of that
dread disease. It will effect a
permanent cure in less time than
any other treatment. The 25 and

Electric Jitters is a medicine
suited for any season, but perhaps
more generally needed in the
spring, when the languid exhaust
ed feeling prevails, when the liver
is torpid and sluggish and the
need of a tonic and alterative is
felt. A prompt use of this medi
cine has ofton averted long and
perhaps fatal bilious fevers. No
medicine will acit more surely in
counteracting and freeing the
system from malarial poison.

Reading of general orders of
Oapt. J. A. Hudson notifying
comrades of Camp Hughes of the
death of Major-General Joseph O.
Shelby of Missouri.
Comrades:—It becomes my
painful duty to inform you that
another of our beloved generals
of the lost cause has passed over
the river to answer to roll call in
the great beyond. Gen. J. O.
Shelby, Missouri’s great cavalry-
man, died at his home in Missouri
the 13th instant. Camp Hughes
as well as all Confederates, and
especially all members of his old
command, several of whom are
members of our camp, feels this
loss and mourns the death of one
so intimately connected with the
Trans-Mississippi department. He
had no superior in the department
as a cavalry commander. Brave
and courageous as a lion in battle
ever leadiDg his men where duty
and honor called regardless of
danger, yet kind and gentle as a
woman to his men, and ever watch-
ful of their needs and comfort,
ever ready to strike a blow at the
enemy, but when they were in his
power treated them as friends;
one in whom all his superiors
placed implicit confidence that
their orders, be they next to im-
possible, would be executed. He
entered the army at tbe beginning
of the war as a captain, and was
the last to disband his mdft’'at the
close, haviDg been promoted to
major-general. He disbanded
near Corsicana, Texas, in June,
1865, and even after this rendered
assistance to the ^tate.
But \?by should 1, a member of
his command who might be thought
egotistical, extol his merits
and* the merits of his command
since General J. B. Gordon has
issued his general order which I
have attached and ask that it be
read. J. A. Hudson, Comd.

Association and mourns the death
of the great Missouri chieftain,
whose tireless activity and splen-

army filled page after page of the
history of the war with the splen-
dor of his brilliant achievements.
Possessing wonderful aptness
for command and genius for war,
he was one of those meteoric sol-
diers who a»e “ born, not made”;

name in fadeless characters of

Said resolutions were adopted

tions as follows :
Whereas, the Grand Command-

wisdom has seen fit to deprive us
(the U. C. Y.) of one of the most
distinguished generals and the
commander of Missouri U. C. Y.,
iu the death of Major-General
Joseph O. Shelby of Missouri, be
Reaolved, that while we sub-
missively bow to his irrevocable
order, who does all things for
good, yet we, the members of
Camp Hughes, aud no doubt all
Confederates, could but wish, had
it pleased his divine will, he might
still have been spared to us his
life to swell the fast decimating
ranks of those his daring from
1861 to 1$Q5 had made so honora-
Resolved, that in his dea’ h the
U. C. Y. has lost one of its most
euergelic members aud staunchest
supporters; his family a kind
husband and father; Missouri
one of her most distinguished
sons; and the fair Southland one
who sacrificed the flower of his
age and all that he possessed for
R.'solved, that we, as a Camp,
extend to his bereaved family our
sincere aud heartfelt sympathy

of the Baptist church at Rives
Junction she was brought down
with pneumonia succeeding la

little interruption and it seemed
as if she could not survive them.
