THE 3. 13, ii . Píí á' lIOiíM Vol. IX ROY, MORA COUNTY, NEW MEXICO. SATURDAY, MAY 11, 1912. No. 16 Last Sad Rites of Wm. C. Roy Held Monday Morning at 10 o'clock from the home of F. A. Roy The last sad rites have been performed, and all that remains of the earthly temple of pur hon ored citizen now lies in the little cemetery adjoining the town in which the best years of his life have been spent. The last tribute to the memory of this man an impressive dis play of the sentiment and regard in which he was held by his friends, was the funeral cortege which escorted the dead to is last resting place. Young and old, rich and poor, were hi that tad procession, and upon all alike rested the feeling of loss unredeemable. Yet still remains to those whose memory does not fail, the object lessons and inspirations of this man '8 life amongst us. Slowly, slowly, to the soft chant of the priest, the bearers moved onward upon that last journey, which we all must travel, until the the temple of sacred worship was reached. Here, in the House of God, which the deceased was Instru mental in building, the Father Antonio Cellier paid in simple, impressive languago, a touching tribute to the departed. With sincere, direct words the priest entreated his hearers to remem ber the great truth that life for itself is vanity that fho "greater purpose of our existence here on earth is not for the enjoyment of wordly pleasures, but for tli preparation of our souls to meet our God. He dwelt upon the Irailities and imperfections of earthly life, its uncertainty and insufficiency, and pointed upward and above it all to that l'.fe bsyond that is full and complete and un ending, The sounds of those grand old hymns, "Lend Kindlv Light" and "Nearer My God to Tliee" sung at intervals by the choir, must surely have soothed the suffering hearts of those who held him near and dear and strengthened the conviction of another world--that place of Holy rest, and peace at tlia last. After the beautif nl and impres sive ceremony of High Kcquiem Mass for the repose of the de parted soul, the remains were tnlien to the Catholic Cemetery . and resigned to the earth. And if there be an inscription placed over his grave, let it be this, his favorite sentiment dur ing his courageous life "The Lord will not look you over for Medals but for SCABS." The following gentlemen were the pall bearers. I). A. Clouthier, of Springer, a cousin to tho deceased, T. E. Mitchell, of Albert,Ignacio Maes tns, Wm. Brumage, H. W. Far mer, John Schneider!

The following is extracted from last week's Wagon Mound Pantagrath. The fight being made by Wagon Mound for the County seat is be ginning to show "who's- who". The people of Wagon Mound and vicinity believe they would have a true friend in their fight, when they rallied to the support of Mr. Bias Sanchez, and really elected him to the Legislature. But from reports received from Santa Fe, it seems that our friend (?) is show ing the "white feather" and Wagon Mound will have to await a time with patience to be revenged An indignation meeting of the ci tizens of Wagon Mound was held Saturday night, and the following resolution was adopted unanimous ly and the resolution sent to San chez. To Hon. Bias Sanchez, Representative, Santa Fe, K. M. Whereas, the undersigntd citi zens of Mora County have banded themselves together as a committe to work for the establishment of a county seat at this place, and for other purposes, and Whereas, the Hon.
