LAST SAD TRI BUTE TO NOBLE YOUNG MAN Hundreds of Sympathtic Friends At tend the Last Sad Rites Over the remains of Mr. Iliatt. From Friday's Dally. The Methodist church yesterday afternoon was filled to overflowing capacity when the residents of the city gathered there to pay their last token of respect to the memory of Charles Iliutt who met his death so tragically Wednesday afternoon. The feeling of grief that the event had occasioned among the many hundreds who hail known Charley Iliatt in life was reflected in the hundreds that thronged the church to pay a silent tribute to his life. Rev. F. M. Druliner, pastor of the church, spoke very feelingly on the lit' of the departed friend who had been a member of his flock and who had been associated with the active life of the church sinca he had united with the faith. The pastor took as the subject of the sermon "Character'' and pointed out the many virtues that formed the character of a true man or woman and in this paid a tribute to the brother just passed on whose life has been one that has served to aid his fellow man and not to harm man or woman, but to give a cherry word wherever possible to lighten the load of those more un fortunate than himself. The choir composed of Mrs. E. II. Wescott, Miss Florence Balscr, Mrs. B. Hayes, Mrs. Charles Jelinek, I). C. York, W. G. Brooks, F. A. Cloidt and Jesse Perry gave several beautiful and appropriate numbers during the services that served to soften the grief of the sorrowing ones with the thought of the blessed fu ture which was opening for their lov ed one as he passed from their side into the valley of the shadow. The services throughout were most impressive and beautiful and filled with a deep feeling of profound re gret that the friend and neighbor was taken from his home so suddenly but it was a thought to comfort and sus tain the members of the family that the departed had been ready to go and was at peace with his Maker and firm in the faith and teaching of the church he had accepted. The mem bers of the Men's Bible class of which Mr. Iliatt was a member occupied scats at the front of the church dur ing the funeral services and shared with the family the grief of the loss that had befallen them. The floral tributes were beautiful and the tender blooms of the lilly and rose spoke of feeiing of regret at the death of the well beloved friend who had been stricken by the hand of death while in the full enjoyment of life and health. The interment was had at beautiful Oak Hill cemetery where, as the day was dawning to a close, the body was laid to its last long rest. BIG A. O.U.W.

POLICE SHOULD NOT LISTEN TO PARENTS OF NIGHT PROWLERS From Friday's Daily. The police of the city have had con-1 siderable trouble for sometime with the young people of from ten to fif- teen years of age loafing on the street long after the time they should I have been home and especially with I several young girls who have been down town much longer than they really should be at night. The efforts to look after the welfare of the young folks who run wild on the streets, made by the police, are not appreciat- I ed as thev should be by either the narents or the vountr neonle. as in a ereat many cases when warnimr have been heeded there has been ,,.v, fmKio covai fnr UniU tiia Tinr. I ents and the youngsters. It is really nni o nn, r.r V10 rmliVino- nf fhp ritv to have to round up the boys and girls of this age every evening, as it more properly lies in the province of the parents themselves but in a num ber of cases it is clear that there is very little attention paid to where the young people go or what they do until some trouble developes as a re sult and then a howl goes up over the way the kids turn out. Several times the police have been jumped on by indignant parents for ordering their children home late at night and with this encouragement given it is little wonder that there is so much of the loafing going on late at night on the streets.
