The Home For Confederate
The editor of Tue Advertiser en
joyed the privilege of spending the
greater portion of a day at the Sol
diers' Home recently as a member of
the board of trustees of that institu
tion. The other members of the
board are Gen. Lyon, of Columbia,
the chairman, Col. Welch, of Char
leston, and Col. Brailsford, of Cam
den, all of whom are Confederate vet
erans themselves and typical repre
sentatives of the Old South, whom
to knov is to hold in the highest es
teem and admiration. It is indeed
a delightful privilege to be associated
with these gentlemen.
The Soldiers' Home is ideally lo
cated on an eminence in the center
of an eighteen-acre tract of land in
the northeastern suburbs of Colum
bia. The institution was established
some 12 or 15 years ago as a haven
of i*est, a real home for Confederate
veterans who possess but little of this
world's goods and who have no near
relatives to care for them. The in
stitution under the capable manage
ment of Col. Lewis Wardlaw, him
self a veteran of the sixties, is meet
ing every need that was contemplated
by its original founders. Col. Ward
law is a son of old Edgefield, a broth
er of the lamented Mrs. Dr. J. W.
Hill, and Was reared in the house
where Mr. Thomas H. Rainsford now
resides. Although he left Edgefield
soon after the close of th eCivil war,
Col. Wardlaw has lost none of his
loyalty or love for his native heath.
It is indeed interesting to hear him
relate his school-day, boyhood ex
periences, his early life having been
intimately associated with the older
generation now living in Edgefield.
The father of the writer and Col.
Wardlaw were desk-mates when they
attended the old Edgefield Academy.
Col. Wardlaw is wonderfully well
equipped for the duties that devolve
upon him. In the first place he is a
practical, successful business man,
managing the executive or business
end of the institution in a highly sat
isfactory manner. After providing
for every need and wish of the 58
old soldiers, representing practically
every county in the state, he not only
stays within the bounds of the appro
priation made annually by the legis
lature for the maintenance of the in
stitution, but generally has a small
. balance left at the close of the year.
Every possible comfort, including
wholesome food in great variety and
abundance, can be found there for
the enjoyment of the men who offer
ed their lives for their country. Col.
Wardlaw is uniformly kind to them,
humors them, pets them, sympathires
with them, and yet all the while he ?2
. firm and unyielding when occasion
requires it for the best interests of
the inmates of the home. He is .a
well-rounded, large-hearted, sympa
thizing friend and benefactor of near
ly three score of men who have seen
better days. One of them, Mr. E. B.
Timmerman, is from the Meeting
Street section of this county, than
whom the ranks of the Confederate
army did not contain a braver
soldier. We could not help clasping
Iiis hand just a bit tighter and hear
tier than we did the rest of the group.
In the person of his good wife, who
moves about the home carrying
warm-hearted sympathy and sunshine
wherever she goes, Col. Wardlaw has
an indispensable co-worker. Mrs.
Wardlaw, she too being a typical rep
resentative of the Old South, is an
angel of mercy to these men to whom
the shadows are rapidly lengthening
in their declining years. The writer,
together with the other members of
the board, was the guest of Col. and
Mrs. Wardlaw at dinner, consequent
ly we were for a few short hours
close and very pleasantly associated
with them around their own fire
Col. Wardlaw has another valua
ble helper and co-worker in the per
son of Sergt. E. J. Jones, who mar
ried Miss Ellie Brooks, an Edgefield
lady. Their only son, an officer in
the American expeditionary forces,
has been rendering splendid service
' overseas. Sergt. Jones is employed
by Co!. Wardiaw as a general assis
tant about the premises and he spends
much of his time improving the
lawns, cultivating the flowers and in
other ways beautifying the place.
Sergt. Jones is a helpful factor in
making the institution a complete
Great is the pity that more people
over the state, especially veterans
themselves, do not know more of the
work that the Confederate home is
doing for aged men who deserve all
and even more than we can do for
them. To sum up briefly, it ig a
well-equipped and well-conducted
home for men who are in great need
of just such a place to spend life's
sunset in. All honor to the man or
men who conceived the idea of estab
lishing the home and all honor to
Col. Wardiaw for its faultless man
agement, making it meet in every
way the needs for which it was found

Says She Feels Fine Now and "Sure
Can Praise Tanlac for Its Aid.
"It is the best medicine I ever took
for stomach trouble, nervousness and
palpitation of the heart. I sure can
praise and recommend it," declared
Mrs. H. E. Lawter, of 116 Williams
St., Spartanburg, in a statement she
gave in endorsement of Tanlac, "The
National Tonic." on February 1 1917.
"I suffered from very bad cases of
indigestion, nervousness and palpi
tation of the heart," continued Mrs.
Lawter. "I could hardly sleep, and
would just roll ond tumble for hours,
and my nerves were so badly disturb
ed that I was kept miserable almost
all the time. I could eat scarcely any
thing. What I did eat felt like bricks
in my stomach, and I had a kind of
choking in my chest after meals.
"My heart fluttered a great deal,
and this, I think, was caused by the
quantity of gas that formed on my
"Finally, I decided to try Tanlac,
as it had helped so many others who
had troubles somewhat like mine, and
now I am not bothered with stomach
trouble, thanks to Tanlac. I foal a
great deal better in every way, too.
My nerves are much stronger and
steadier, and I used to get so nervous
that I jumped when anyone spoke to
me. I'm certainly not that way now,
as Tanlac has relieved those nervous
troubles and I have not been bother
ed a bit with palpitation since 1 took
the first bottle of Tanlac.
"I feel fine now in many ways and
I sure can praise Tanlac and I give
it credit for the change in my condi
jtion . I am fifty-nine years old and it
j takes a powerfully good med;cine to
help anyone as old as I am as much as
Tanlac has helped me."
