Editors of TiiK Cot 101.11 : I soc in The
Statu an oller by sumo one to donato (ive.
hundred dollars for thc establishment
of a (20,000 Cou fedora to homo. While
this is a very worthy and commendable
purpose, 1 think tho following a much
belter plait :
1st. Let each county raise, say $10,000,
and with this sum buy one ar two good
farms in the counties raising the money,
and dot these farms over wit h neat col
tages, and allow ouch one a house and
say fifteen or twenty acres of good land
as a home fret; of rent for life, ami Iel
tho qualification for a homo be: That the
applicant must bc a maimed Confederate
soldier or widow; that he owns no land,
and that he or she is not able to buy a
homo. A nice home ol' this kin.I and the
small pension they receive and what they
could make Oil this place each county
ought to provide in this way to make al
least forty ol' the most worthy and disa
bled spend their remaining days ill com
parative ease. Say each county would
provide for forty and forty times forty
would be about sixteen hundred ol them
could bo taken oil of rented land ami
placed into homes of their own for life,
and the State would he no poorer hy
such a charitable course. i mean for
every dollar to bc raised by private sub
scription, and winni the last,one of these
noble old veterans shall have crossed
over the river and are resting under the
shade, then let these homes be sold and
the. money returned lo tin- heirs of the
donors, and in this way it will only bc a
loan for lifo without interest. Let us
start a home, if ou a small scale, in
Oconcc, and some big hearted physician
will do tho practice gratis, ami some big
hearted merchant will sell them goods at
cost. An old crippled Confederate sol
(lier, without money or home is almost
sure to be without friends, and seem to
bo looked on as simply unfortunate,
without a ray of hope for a brighter day.
2d. The writer ol' lids will give >>0<i
lo start a $10,000 home in < Icoiico, or thc
same in proportion l'or a smaller home.
Como, Iel us rally around the men who
carried the Hag, although that Hag bo no
more. Ol.li COM 1:0.
