Mrs. Ella Newsome Trader
Happy Over Monument
Totally blind In ono oye and almost
entirely deaf, Mrs. Ella Nowsome
Trader, known as the "Florenci Night
ingale of the South," Is happy today
that the memory of the brave Confed
erate dead In Arlington Cemetery has
been marked with a fitting memorial.
Tho life of Mrs. Trader, who for many
cars has been an emploje of tho Pen
sion Office, reads like fiction.
She cherishes tho consolation that her
life has been one of humblo sacrifice
and recalls with happiness her work
among the wounded soldiers of the
Confderacy during the war between
tho States. She too has hundreds of
friends among tin Union veterans to
day, somo of whom posnlbly owe their
lives to her nurslnc when they were In
the hands of Confederate troops after
receiving painful wounds on the buttlo
field. During the war between the North
and the South, Mrs. Trader, then Mrs.
Ella Newsome, gave practically her
entire fortune, amounting. It Is xald,
to between 125,000 and 175.000, though
Mrs Trader herself cannot say what
tho amount was "I kept no account
of tho money I gave in founding hos
pitals nhd In caring for wounded and
sick soldiers. My heart was In my
work, and not about my money," said
Not only did she give her fortune
to heln allovloto the sufferings of wound
ed soldiers, but the labor of five of
her servants. And. too, besides money,
she supplied food from her great plan
tatlon. Impoverished by her generosity, Mrs
Trader, after the war, was oractlcally
penniless. She ramo to Washington and
obtained a position in the Pension Of
fice, where she has served faithfully
Today she Is not sorry for her experience
as a nurse during the war. or that
she gse her fortune to "The Lost
Cause" She will die happv that she
once served Dixie and served It well.
A striking trlbutn Is nld Mrs Trader

a hlstnrv of her life. It will be nub
