O. A. IT. comrades, members of the
tlty council, rcliitlvrs and friends of
tho late Jiinira V. Davenport, who lost
his life in tho street cur accident at
"Washington ond nurllngtnn utrcets last
Friday, completely filled tho First
Methodist church yesterday afternoon
to pay their last tribute to tho momory
of a friend.
Man of Great Heart
Tho funeral servlees tvero conducted
by Dr. Hobcrt Alclntyro, who rpoko of
Mr. Davenport as a man who had a
largo heart that held a lovo for every
man whom ho met and was charltablo
to alt those about him. Ho told of the
three phases of tho deceased man's life
—as a man who loved his home and
family, as a fraternal man, loving all
of those with whom ho camo in con
tact, and as a soldier, bravely serving
He read tho story of tho boy at the
nge of 11 taking up his dinner pall in
the morning to go forth to provide, a
meager living for his family, which
wore deprived of a father's care on ac
count of his sickness. This same boy
afterward married and raised a family
of his own. For seventeen years he was
a commercial traveler, but ho always
thought of his loved ones al home and
never failed to writo them a dally
letter. This man, who was James
Davenport, afterward came to Los An-
Reles and has been known and loved
by a host of rlends.
Comrades Go to Cemetery
, Francis Murphy paid a high tribute
to the man who had been his comrade
In battle and afterward in Los An
geles. C. C. Bowen, who was presi
dent of the council during the time that
Mr. Davenport was a member, told of
his willing spirit and his desire to take
nil the blame for anything that had
Bone wrong, and of the esteem his fel
low councllmen held for him.
The remains were Interred In Rose
dale cemetery, where the services weve
conducted with military honors by the
O. A. K. The Benevolent Protective
Order of Elks, of which Mr. Davenport
was a member, alao held a memorial
' After reading the biography of Mr.
Davenport's life. Rev. Mr. . Mclntyre
spoke In part as follows:
"I like to think of the three different
phases of this man's life. First, 1 want
to praise his character as a domestic
man. Every man who supports one
home, is true to one wife and to one
family of children, is a champion, is a
friend of our nation. When such a
man goes we are losers.
"He is a man who has gone up the
hill of life with a mate of the opposite
sex, passed over the creßt and down
toward tho western sun in this way.
Such a man is worthy of praise. No
matter how obscure a man is, if ho Is
faithful to one home he is worthy of
Man of Great Heart
"My hand Is ever outheld to the
man who is true to his tlreslde. This
man was as true as steel. Seventeen
years a commercial traveler and never
missed a letter to his home every day.
As the needle of the compass is true
to the north pole, so was his heart
true to his fireside.
"Then ho rises a fraternal man.
Many a man is true to his home, but
lives in it alone and has no love for
tho sorrowing world around him. He
had a place In his heart like a fireside.
Big and warm, he took all his friends
and neighbors and associates in.
"The chief need of the world today
Js more warmth of heart. Some think
that wo jyjed more educated brains.
We do not. Some think we need more
money. Wo do not. Do you think
those men recently exposed would have
taken the money of the poor and wid
ows If they had had warmth of heart?
"Our town is poorer than it would
have been by the loss of three cold
liearted men^ who have little or no love
. for their fellow-men. In this world
♦ here is nothing more needed than bis,
warm hearts. May God bless these
men who have elected It to be their
duty to help their fellow men.
"Thirdly, I wish to speak of him as
a patriotic man. A soldier is different
from any other man. Ho represents
his nation and us. When he does
wrong we are hurt, when he does right
we avo honored.
Was a Faithful Soldier
"As a youth ho laid his life upon the
nation's altar, and went out to meet
wounds and death if need be for his
nation. The soldier serves hla country
by offering to sacrifice himself — that is
why ho In honored above other men.
"When I see Old Glory wrapped around
a casket my heart leaps up. He gave
four years of his life to his country.
"When this life was crushed out we
all writhed in agony. I dread to part
•with any man and doubly so with a
eoldier. So this warrior is gone — his
•work is done.
■ "I believe him to have been a sound,
honest, true American— a high type of
man and I want you ull to feel that
In losing such a man we are parting
"I believe If that man could speak
from that casket he would say, 'Prepare
to meet thy God.' Last winter during
the revivals the call was made for
those who wished to become Chris
tians to stand up. This man stood up
and held up his hand and Bald, "I want
to be a Christian.'
"This man silent, but eloquent, sends
the message, 'Prepare to meet thy God,"
and let us take it and not let It be
crowded out tomorrow. Such a soul us
this craving utter God is not lost and
I would not have you think of him as
dead. God will never let such a one

Wat an Untiring Worker
C. C. Bowen told of Mr. Davenport's
life n« a city officer and how he was
an untiring worker for anything which
he thought was for the good of the
people of the city.
"When such loving words," he said,
"ran be mild as have been said of this
man, he leaves a legacy. A manly man
—a brave man. The. highest type of
"I shall never forget the first time
I met Mr. Daveniiort. It whs on the
street when he was a candidate for
councilman. We Introduced ourselves
nnd I was drawn close to him. I ad
mire his earnestness and honest zeal.
"There arc times which prove a man.
I remember him In the council and he
wmb always willing to shoulder all the
responsibility for anything that had not
gone right. Never did ho complain of
his share of the work. Brave and will.
In* to do what he thought was right.
"We members of tho council loved
him and held him dear In our hearts.
He leaves one of the best legacies that
a man can leave. We can truly say that
he was a good man nnd a righteous
man. He had one of the most tender
hearts I ever knew In a man's breast.
He was always willing to lighten the
burden of others."

TALKS OF WITHERED MINDS
Rev. Robert J. Burdette Tells Hearers
of Pitiful Existence of Non.
At the Temple Baptist church yes
terday Rev. Robert J. Burdette
preached on "Crippled Christians," tak
ing for his text Luke 6:6, "There was
a man whose right hand was withered."
He said in part:
" 'There,' in the synagogue. 'On the
Sabbath day.' The man was in the right
place, but he was useless in It. His right
hand— the symbol of strength, the
working hand— the bread-winner typi
of a man's active doing, his practical
skillful energy— his right hand war
withered. Muscles do not atroph>
from activity, but disuse. Long vaca
tions are more injurious than hours ol
overwork. A year or two ngo there
died in Stockerau, Bavaria, a woman,
or perhaps I should say a child, named
Maria Schuman. She was twenty
eight years old and she died In the
cradle where her mother cooed her to
sleep with her first cradle songs, and
where this dwarf had lived ull the
years of her life, if one could call that
living which had no growth. Her intel
lect developed normally and she talked
intelligently like any grown person.
But hers was the body, the physical
development of a baby about six
months old. Did you ever see a Chris
rocking in a cradle, no bigger and no
stronger than when he was born into the
kingdom? These 'babies' are Chris
tians—yes. But they are useless Chris
tians, dwarfed and abnormal. Not so
useful and not nearly so pleasant as
babes In Christ.' For there is some
thing uncanny and elfish In a baby
ten years old. And when the baby Is
twenty years old, It is pathetic — it is
