Joseph A. Anderson

(From Tuesday's Daily)

Odd Fellows' hall was crowded this afternoon with friends and relatives of the late Captain Joseph A. Anderson, who gathered there to attend his funeral, conducted by the Odd Fellows lodges of Wheeler and this city. Rev. T. J. Bassett gave the sermon and offered prayer. Interment followed in Graceland.

The casket was opened in the hall this morning at 9 o'clock, and during the time between then and the services many friends viewed the remains. Floral pieces from the Odd Fellows and the old soldiers were in evidence, and the casket was draped with an American flag.

Honorary pallbearers chosen were John McGillicuddy, Jesse Casbon, Peter Aber, Fred Joel, C. C. Budd and M. A. McNiece. The active bearers were L. T. Campbell, Bert Wise, John Holman, Charles Anderson, John Fulton, Sam Collins.
