Ill spite of her overwhelming sor
row the mother bore tip bravely yes
terday ami planned cart-fully how she
might give her son a decent burial
witi 'he limited means at her com
mand. As she was not able to pay
the charges of shipping the remains
home it was arranged to bury them
The burial took place this after
noon .-it Chippiannock cemetery. Serv
ices were conducted at the grave by
Rev. Thomas Maekin.
Mrs. Walker is unable to throw any
light upon the motive her son had in
committing his rash act. She did
not know of any trouble he had be
come involved in and she asserts that
he was not of a violent or reckless
nature. She says, however, that he
was highly nervous ami disposed to
brood civer real or fancied difficulties
and suggests that he may have become
wrought up over some trifling affair
till the officer's scrutiny when he was
mistaken for another man drove him
to desperation. She says the young
man was much thinner in flesh than
when he left home a 3 car ago.
