"DEATH OF MR. CHARLIE WARDER SUNDAY NIGHT.
"Mr. Charlie H. Warder, beloved and highly respected citizen of
Glasgow, died at the Samson Community Hospital here Sunday night,
following a week's illness. Although he had been in declining health
since being injured in a fall several months ago, his death, which
was attributed to heart disease and bronchial pneumonia, came as a
shock to Glasgow, Barren County and surrounding community.
"Uncle" Charlie, as he was familiarly known, had a wide knowledge of
county and civif affairs. He was a retired druggist and had devoted
his latter years to clerical work. He was one of the most widely
known figures in Barren County and the high esteem in which he was
held was evidenced Tuesday by the large crowd that gathered for his
"Born and reared in this county he entered the drug business when a
young man in the firm of Orr & Warder, which was located on north
side of ssqure in building now occupied by Price's Grocery. Several
years ago Mr. Warder sold his interest in the drug store and devoted
his time to clerical work with local tobacco companies, and had been
connected with the E. Warder Tobacco Co., as bookkeeper during the
winter months for a number of years.
"Serving as deputy clerk under Miss Bess Howard for a number of
years, devoting most of his time to the tax department, there was
perhaps no other person in the county who was better posted on
Barren County's govermental affairs than Mr. Warder. He has served as
county auditor since the budget bill went into effect, and has
rendered invaluable service to various count offices and was familiar
with every department in the court house. He was conscientious in his
dealings and solid as the Rock of Gibraltar in his untiring efforts
to safeguard the welfare of Barren County citizens.
"He was a son of tghe late Marshall H. and Ellen Curd Warder and was
preceded to the grave by two brothers, Messrs Ellis and Willard
Warder and a sister, Mrs. G. M. Bohannon. He was twice married,
fidrst to Miss Sallie Steen. To this union one daughter was born,
Sarah, who died some years ago. His second marriage was to Miss Daisy
White, of Chicago, and teacher in Liberty College. Her death occurred
several years ago. There was one daughter by this marriage, Dora
Abigail, who died when a child.
"Mr. Warder was a devout member of the Christian Church and Crown
Lodge Knights of Pythias, and the teachings derived therefrom were
practiced by him in daily life. In addition to devoting much time to
civic enterprises in this community he was especially interested in
athletics, which was his favorite entertainment. So interested was he
in the development of athletics that he organized a boys' baseball
team and provided them with equipment, and was constantly promoting
the interest of young boys in athletics.
"He was an intelligent observer, and possessor of analtical mind.
Politically, Mr. Warder was a Democrat, and was ready at all times,
publicly or privatelyh, to defend the tenets of his political faith.
Fair and just in business dealings, his friends were legion. He was
universally respected and his record as a citizen and business man
was outstanding. His staunchness to old and new-found friends, alike,
his high character and clean lifein a model from which many should
pattern their lives.
"The only survivor of his immediate family is a brother, Mr. William
H. Warder, of Nashville. Three nieces, Mrs. I. D. S. Knight, Durham,
N. C., Mrs. Charles E. Boles, Washington, D. C., and Mrs. R. H.
Vaughan, Glasgow, also survive him. Funeral services were conductged
at the First Christian Church Tuesday morning at 10:30 o'clock with
Revs. T. H. Alderson, J. A. Gaines and B. A. Sykes in charge.
Interment was in the cemetery at this place."
