"Burial of Martin L. Weatherman"
Last Thursday the body of Martin L. Weatherman landed at Chadwick, from the Philipine Islands. Six days before news had come over the wires telling his friends at Walnut Shade, that the body was on its way from San Francisco to them. Arrangements was made with John Felkins, at Chadwick, to take possession of the body and deliver it to his friends at Walnut Shade.
Last Thursday evening Mr. Felkins arrived at the home of Martin's half brother, W. P. Weatherman. Last Friday evening the body of Martin L. Weatherman was deposited in its last resting place near the grave of his father. Many of Martin's friends and associates witnessed these last sad rights of their friend and brother. His mother was not there, she in now living in the Indian Ter.
It will be remembered that Mart, in Oct, 1899, enlisted in the Spanish-American War, at Springfield, Mo., in time when the U.S. was demanding his services. When in the line of battle on the 8th day of Dec. 1900, in the Philipine Island the shot from a rifle of a Filipino that took the life of this stout, noble and generous young man.
Mart was a young man who merited the friendship of all his acquaintances. "Once a friend, always a friend," was Mart's motto. And to be a friend in deed , was to be a friend in truth. Mart leaves many friends to mourn his loss.
Now we can only say, "we hope to meet you in that eternal home."
