R. ran a special train from Morley,
and that curried a large number of
passengers from the Iron Mountain
towns and from iJenton. A contin
gent of the Knights Templars com
mandery of the Free Masons, of
which deceased was a member, ar
rived from Capo Girardeau. The An
cient Order of United Workman was
represented by members from the
various lodges in the county and the
regalia of both orders added to the
dignity and solemnity of the occa
sion. Tne procession to tho M. K.
church passed through a concourse of
citizens such as never before assem
bled at a funeral in Scott county.
The little church was altogether in
adequate to accommodate more than
a mere fraction of the assemblage.
The beautiful and impressive ritual
of the Knights Templars was used in
the church, as also at tho cemetery,
and a choir of picked singers render
ed hymns appropriate to the cere
monies. The Commerce cemetery is located
on a height o'erlooking the town And
commanding a charming view of the
Mississippi, which presents t this
point one of its most attractive land
scapes. Here the interment took
place and the last words spoken as
