WHERE MORGAN WILL BE BURIED
This Is the Tomb of the Morgan Family in Cedar Hill Cemetery, Hartford,
Conn. The Body of the "Money King" Will . Be Buried in a Niche.
By Berton Braley.
Here lies greatness come to dust,
As at length all greatness must,
Here lies pow.er, powerless,
Impotent to curse or bless,
Here, with thought and spirit fle'd
Lies the huge collosus, dead!
Lord of lesser lords of gold,
He was ruthless; strong and bold,
' Yet in some strange measure, good,
-Like a mightier Robin Hood,
Great in giving as'in greed
He was of .a Titan breed.
Now he lies here, cold and still,
Done with earthly good, or ill,
Vanished all his mastery
Even slaves are more than he,
Yet, the solemn- dirges, ring
For he WAS a kingly king,
ihiccaneer -but royal, too,
So we give the dead his due;
Knowing all the paths he trod
Who shall judge him but his God?'-

and inside that clothing should be
changeable. The outer wrap should
be the adaptable one.
A Chinaman told a Spokane police
judge that he drove a crippled horse

things making one regret giving .up
his horse for an" infernal machine
that won't run at all unless it can
break the speed ordinance. - ,
