FUNERAL UNDER HUGE TREE
Services for lllinoisan Held in Shade
of Immense Hackberry He Owned
for Forty Years.
Assumption, HI.—Forty years of care
for a hackberry tree that grew,, in
his front yard provided Dr. R. W.
Johnson, who died here, with one of
the most unique places for a funeral
service that this state has ever pro
vided. His request was that the fu
neral be held in the old tree's shade.
Hupdreds of friends who gathered
at the funeral from Christian and
near-by counties found that the tree's
Immensity was not exaggerated. It
rises about 300 feet in the air and
spreads over the entire yard in which
the homestead Is located.
Its size has balked all efforts of
friends of the late Doctor J^unson to
measure It with exactitude. Both
kites and toy balloons have been utfed
Seven years ago the tree's height
was over 225 feet, and it Is said to
have grown phenomenally since. Old
settlers of Christian county say It Is
about the same age as Doctor John'
son, who died at the age of seventy
one. Forty years ago he acquired the
property upon which the tree grew,
and built a home. It had already been
growing then for 30 years, they said.
