MANY FEATURESFOR CONCERT
A little service to which considerable
sentiment attaches was performed to
day, when the crew of the government
Fnag boat Col. A. Mackenzie, under ( Waltz, "Jolly Fellows
direction of Colonel C. W. Durham and
Captain Frank Martin, placed an an
chor on the grave of Captain David Me
Bride Tipton at Chippiannock cemetery

captain. The auchor is in itself one of
unusual interest, as it is a relic of the
early days of the Mississippi. It was
found near Montrose, Iowa, about live
years ago. during some work of govern
ment dredges. None of the old resi
dents along the lower rapids recall any
time when such an anchor was lost,
and where it came from is a mystery.
It is of an entirely different type from
that now in use on Mississippi river
boats, and more nearly resembles
those found on sea vessels. It is sup
posed that in the pioneer days a lxat
from the lower river, venturing north,
lost the anchor on the rapids.
The anchor was left at the yards on
the rapids until the last time the
steamer Col. A. Mackenzie came
north, when it was placed on board
and brought to this city and placed on
the grave of Captain Tipton. The an
chor is a very fitting monument to the
memory of the man whose grave it
marks, and the fact that he was for five
years before his death, Sept. 22. 1904,
at Red Wing. Minn., master of the
Mackenzie, adds to the interest m tins
unique tribute by the crew of the boat
and the officers of the corps of engin
eers here. .

Captain David McBrule Tipton at the
time of his death was 7fi years of age
He was born on the Muskingum river
and in boyhood began his career on
the river. He followed the Muskingum
nn.l Ohio rivers for a time, and then
came to the Mississippi. Before the
civil war he was employed as a pilot
on the Northern line, running between
r. IjhiIs and St. Paul. Daring the civil
war he was engaged as a pilet on the
government fleet in the lower river.
He was engaged in the government riv
er service from 1S73 to the time ef his
death, on the various snag boats which
were ultimately saceeedel by the one
of which he was master when he died.
He was one of the most respected
men in the service of the government
:n the river, and word of his death
brought sorrow to all associated with
him. and to those who knew him. Gen
eral' Mackenzie, tor whom the steamer
was named, expressed his sorrow and
regret in a telegram to the engineers'
office here. As Captain Tipton was
one of the old stamp of river masters,
i; is most appropriate that his grave
is marked with the iron relic of even
