5 “is God’s Good Blessing”
” I feel that God has blessed Dr. Acker with special knowledge to prepare
that grand medicine called Acker's English Remedy for Throat and Lung
Troubles. It saves children every time when they are attacked by croup.
Every mother should know about
it, and I will tell about my expe
rience. I ba 1 a darling boy of four
years to die w ith croup. M y doctor
did all he could, but the child
could not be made to vomit. That
was before 1 knew of Acker's Eng
lish Remedy. After I did hear of
it, I got a bottle. When our little
eighteen - months-old girl was
stricken with croup, I gave her
this medicine, and insiileof twenty
minutes she vomited and was bet
ter right away. During the win
ter she had croup four times, and
it brought her through each time
all right. I, myself, had bronchitis
pretty bad, and Acker s English
Remedy cured me completely.
Before I close, I want to tell you
of my neighbor's boy, named Jobe Nana. He had bronchitis, too. He got
worse all the time. My husband went over to his house and told hirn about my
case. Then his mother went to town, got a 50-cent bottle of Acker's English
Remedy, and he took it. He came over to our house a few days later and said he
was all right, and also said two doses relieved him from the start. You can un
derstand by my letter why I think so much of Acker's English Remedy. I re
peat that God's blessing must surely have been bestowed upon Dr. Acker.”

RED LETTER DAY FOR POST AND CORPS.
Last Saturday was a red letter day for Custer post aud Relief Corps, it being
joint installation. At 10:30 a. tn. officers of the post were iustalled by Past De
partment Commander J. C. Cooper. Department President Mrs. Gates being pres
ent installed in a very impressive manner the officers of the W. R. C.. after which
Past Department President Mrs. Ungerman stepped forward and in a very appro
priate speech iu behalf of the members of Custer Relief Corps No. 5 presented
the retiring president, Mrs. J. P. jrvine with a gold recognition pin, say
ing that she hoped she would wear it with as much pleasure as the presentation
afforded the donors. Mrs. Irvine responded, assuring them that she would wear it
with as innch if not more pleasure, as it would be one more link in the chain of
remembrance of the loyalty we ought to show to the heroes who sustained and up
held the batiner we love so well in its ltonr of supreme peril. Then all marched
in to the ba nquet room, where the table never before was spread with so many
good things. After dinner the meeting was called to order by Comrade Maloney,
and all joined in singing “Marching Through Georgia." Then Mrs. Gates, de
partment president, was called and said:
“Comrades, Members of the Relief Corps and Friends—lam indeed glad to be
with you today and renew our acquaintance and weld more firmly those ties which
bind us together, were such a thing possible, for we of the Belief Corps are the
wives, daughters and sweethearts of those gallant men who in the early sixties
answered to ‘duty and their country's call,’ and today we are doing what we can
for the ‘remnant of that mighty host,' and as we, the near kin of those noble men,
become aged and our hands too feeble to minister unto them, then our sisters, the
loyal women of this fair land, will take up this work in which they have already
so greatly aided us, and carry it to a finish. Anil now I have a plea to make to all
women who are not already members of our order, to come and help us. We have
no benefits to offer you or rewards; if you come it will simply be love of country-
made manifest in this your desire to aid us in caring for these your country's de
fenders in their declining years. It is hardly necessary that I assure you, my com
rades, that we of the Relief Corps find our greatest pleasure in working for you,
and that our motto is that noble trio of the Grand Army of the Republic, frater
nity, charity and loyalty.”
Mrs. Atkinson followed Mrs. Gates with a very- impressive and enthusiastic
speech. Mrs. Rosa M. Atkinson was the first president of the Geo. Wright W. R.
C. No. 2, and went into the service a very young woman under authority from
Abraham Lincoln. Her first two years’ service was at Columbus, O. She was the
first woman that passed the gates at Camp Chase. Her last thirteen months’ ser
vice was in Washington, D. C. She paid high compliment to the old soldiers ask
ing the question: What would our country be today politically and religiously if it
were not for the flag they saved for us? The W. R. C. came in for their just ap
preciation, and among other remarks she said that the Relief Corps were the only-
legitimate heirs of the Grand Army of the Republic, and that today there are few
bachelor posts, so much do they appreciate the work of the W. R. C.
Rev. H. T. Atkinson spoke very encouragingly to the comrades, after which
several short speeches were made by members. This closed the day, long to be
remembered by the members of the G. A. R. and W. R. C.
