LAID TO REST.
Funeral Services Over the Late Rudolph Goldschmid.
The funeral of the late Mr. Rudolph Goldschmid took place this afternoon at 1:30 o'clock from the family residence, 1210 N street. The handsome house was crowded to the doors with the friends of the family, in the gathering being many of the leading business men of the city, who knew Mr. Goldschmid well and respected him highly for his sterling qualities. The body lay in the main parlor, incased in an elegant casket, which was almost hidden in a mass of flowers.
Among those present were representatives of a number of organizations to which Mr. Goldschmid belonged, including De Novo Council, No. 22, American Legion of honor; Capitol Council, Royal Arcanum; Central Council, National Union; Elijah Lodge, No. 50, I.O.B.B.; United States Benevolent Fraternity; National Lodge, No. 12, F.A.A.M.
The pallbearers were Messrs. I. Saks, Chas. Baum, Myer Cohen, Samuel Bensinger, I. L. Blout, C. F. Norment, S. Bieber, Henry Strasburger, John B. Wight and Henry Sonneborn of Baltimore.
The services were conducted by Rev. L. Stern, the pastor of the Hebrew congregation. Rev. Mr. Stern delivered a beautiful address in memory of the dead man. He spoke of Mr. Goldschmid as a devoted husband and father, a true friend, an excellent citizen, a pure-minded man, whose death is mourned by many, rich and poor, Jews and Christians alike. By industry and scrupulous honesty he earned the respect of all with whom he came in contact, and success made him neither proud nor overbearing. He was generous to a fault, courteous, affable and charitable always. He gave freely of his means for the relief of the poor and he was ever to the fore in all good works.
At the conclusion of the service, which was brief but very impressive, the funeral procession started for Adas Israel cemetery, where the interment was made with Masonic rites.
