Burial of Frank Steiner.
The last sad rites oer the remains
of the lamented Frunk Steiner were
performed yesterday, and he was laid
away in his final resting place at the
beautitul Uakwood cemetery.
The short but pathetic discourse of
Rev. Dr. King was a merited tribute to
a worthy citizen, a trusted friond, and
a loving husband. As he spoke of
his honored position in commercial
life, and his high standing as a Mason,
the hundreds of friends that sat
around Gthe corpse but rc-echorcd the
At tho close of tho doctor's most
fervent prayer, the Masonic fratarnity,
of which order he was a Sir Knight,
began their beautiful burial ceremony,
aud as they marched in Masonic pha
lanx behind tho bier to
the grave followed by the
vcrv largo concourso of sorrowing
friends, it could well bo said that such
a demonstration was a living witness
to the worth of a deserving fellow-citizen.
As the Masons with solemn
tread surrounded tho grave, and with
uplifted hands performed the cere
mony of their symbolio ritual over
their fullcn brother, it softened the
eyes of many who watched them.
Slowly and sadly they lowered him
into chambers that shut out all tho
troubles and toils of earthly existence.
It was a fitting and appropriate lay
ing away of one who had scaled the
Masonio ladder to the Knight-hood,
and who cherished tho order with a
filial and fraternal love. The feeling
benediction of Doctor King closed tho
last service to a man whose life and
character aro worthy of such lofty and
tender expressions from his host of
friends. If the aged parents of tho
deceased could have witnessed these
ceremonies, it would be at least a feo
bio' atonement for tho loss of their
first born, doubtless, they wished for
power to annihilato time and distance
and be present, for such is love. Death
is no rcspector of persons; tho aged
father, with bowed head and furrowed
cheeks, might gladly welcomothe grim
spectre; but for tho con, with
hopes and prospeots for the
futuro, so well planned, to bo
thus taken in the meridian of lifo with
its sweetest joys and fondest pleasures
clinging so tenderly to him, it shows
the inevitablo and incrutablo laws
that govern us all. If ho bo with Him
to whom he prayed to and in whom he
trusted while on earth, it is a consum
mation devoutotly hoped lor, then will
the blessed and pure in heart yet seo
him. May tho soft green sod of this
southern soil lie gently on his peace
ful breast. May tho mild zephyers
from floral fields soothe sweetly his

On the Body of a Traveler.
A passenger on tho Missouri Pacific
north bonnd railroad died yesterday at
1 o'clock p. in., while the train was
passing Echo, a station below Waco,
Tho body was brought to Waco, and
tins moin.hb an inquest was held at
the court of Justice Makeig. The fol
lowing is tho testimony. T. J. Barrow
I got on tho M. K. & T. lailroad at
Austin, Texas, on tho 13th ; was sent
for by Capt. M. D. Herring, who was
my companion, and in tho sleeping
car; when going into the sleeper
noticed deceased sitting in a position
that indicated feeblo health, and seem
ed to bo suffering from a cough. De
ceased asked ior a glass of water, and
the reporter on said sleeper accommo
dated him, and he, deceased, remarked:
"I wish I was at home." Copt. Her

sleeping car, and engaged in conversa
tion perhaps two h6urs ; then the
porter came to us and said: "I believe
that man, deceased, is dead." Capt.
Herring and I then went to deceased,
and found him leaning back in his
seat, and at first glance did not think
he was dead. I examined his heart
and pulse, and found very little signs
ot lite. 1 then poured a glass of whis
key down him and moved him about
in order to find whether or not he had
any life in him ; after using all means
at band found deceased was dead, but
cant say how long deceased
had been in said stato,
I found on said J. II. Gill, several re
ceipts, a letter and bank book, proving
his name to be J. 11. liill, and a letter
addressed to him to Joplin, Mo.: his
bank book showed a credit of 1,801.

said J. H. Gill to draw on Missouri
