its important strategical position it is

on the promontory. Part of these ruins
is still extant. In 1309 it was taken
by the Castilians, only to bo recaptured
by the Moors in 1"J33. It was held by
them until 1402. Following the tak

tonight that the general's mother was
much disappointed because efforts to
bring the body of her son to Topeka
had failed. Mrs. Funston, whose
home is in Iola, Kas., recently has
San Antonio, Tex., Feb. 120. A
funeral service of military simplicity,
in which regulars at Fort Sam Hous
ton, national guardsmen at Camp
Wilson and thousands of civilians
from San Antonio joined, was held
this afternoon for the late Major Gen
eral Frederick Funston, commander
of the southern department, whose
sudden death occurreel last night from
a heart atfectieut.
The culminating honor paid the
dead general here was the placing of
his body within the Alamo, the first
time that historic structure has been
used for such a purpose.
The only religious services hole! to
day were at General Funston's ofii

Company C, Thirty-seventh infantry
the casket was taken to the Southern
Pacific station, where it was placet
in an observation car. In the car
surroneled by flowers and with two
soldiers standing at attention by the
casket, the body will make the jour

Hueh Lee, General Funston's aide, a
sergeant and nine enlisted men wil
accompany the body. The specia
train consisting of the observation
car and a sleeper, left the station at

The route of General Funston's
funeral train for more than 1,000
miles will skirt the international

At the service this alternoon not
an ollicer attending was in full dress.
Like the enlisted men, all wore the
regular Khaki service uniform, the
only distinction being the designating
stars, or bars, and the side arms that
the officers wore. This was done by
regular officers out of consideration
for officers of the national guard,
many of whom had only service uni
The only incident distinguishing the
funeral service of the honored leader
fi'om that of any army officer, came
just as the chaplain finished reading
the burial service at General Funs

general's salute. The band of the
Nineteenth infantry then began play
ing softly, "Lead, Kindly Light."
