Hlrt Memory A Long Line of Mourn
NEBRASKA CITY , Neb. , Dec. S.
A lingering whiff of luminous fra
grance from banks of splendid llow-
ers ; a few heartfelt sentences of lov
ing eulogy ; a loving look at the past
and all that mortality ever claimed of
Senator Monroe L. Hayward was tear
fully consigned to the marble sarco
phagus that may mark his resting
place until time shall be no more.
It was the expressed wish of the
family that the funeral should bo as
private as possible. In some respects
It was , as the ceremony was decidedly
simple , although prolonged. During
the hours of between 10 a. in. and 12
m. the remains lay In state In the
front parlor. Great bunches of rare
exotics and sincerely suggestive de
signs rested 012 every table and over
the iiasslve metallic casket sheathed
In deep velvet. The face of the dead
senator was but little wasted and the
< ; olor was an animated gray , devoid
of the yellow transparency of death.
Hundreds passed around the bier.
As soon as the parlors were vacated
nnd the family spent therein the most
agonizing hour that cornea to mortals.
The mainstay among them was the
gallant son , William , who sought to
comfort his mother for the absence
of her other son In the Philippines.
The services were conducted by
Rev. H. L. House of the Baptist
church. Scripture reading was given
by Rev. C. M. Shepherd , a Methodist
The eulogy by Mr. House was elo
quent and prolonged. Passing the
public career of the dead senator he
pointed out the many sterling attri
butes that made him great and strong.
His homo was a typical Christian
I'.ome of a generation ago , where ro-
"bust and man\y virtues were incul
cated. He was a typo of that Amer
ican citizen of whom wo all are
proudest. He possessed the spirit that
made the people of England love their
.grand old man. He was a man of the
people , a student , a thinker , a hard
worker. Above all ho was honest and
possessed the genuineness of life ; ho
was a born orator , public spirited , en
terprising man , loving husband , indul
gent father , clean politician and true

that points to the simplicity of the
