BURIAL OF MENOTTI GARIBALDI
An Impressive Spectacle on the Campaigna Romana

Gabriele d'Annunzio One of the mourners


Rome, August 26-The burial of Menotti Garibaldi too place today and was a most impressive spectacle. In the night the body was carried on the gun carriage escorted by cavalry, across the Campagna Romana. Admist the darkness would appear from time to time groups of peasants carrying torches, lanterns and characteristic lamps with three wicks, who knelt along the road and called on God to bless the body of the benefactor. A group of cowboys of the Campanga Romana, mounted on prairie ponies and carrying long iron-tipped lances for guiding cattle, joined the escort around the coffin.

As the dawn burst over the Campagna a group of horseman came dashing up from the opposite direction. Their leader who at first was not recognized, approached the gun carriage and laid an oak branch on the coffin. He was scarcely able to restrain his emotion. It was Gabriele d'Annunzio.

Arriving at Carano, Menotti Garibaldi's estate, the coffin was lowered into the grave by the dead man's relatives and friends including d'Aannunzio, who also delivered a brief and touching address. The earth was then filled in. The grave lies in the midst of a desolate plain.
