Large Number of Sorrowing Friends Accompany the Remains to the Last Resting Place
The funeral obsequies over the remains of the late Roland W. Holmes were held this afternoon at the Elks' lodge room and the remains were laid at rest in Mountain View cemetery, and were accompanied to their last resting place by a large cortege of sorrowing friends and relatives. The flower offerings were many and elaborate. The services were under the auspices of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, and many members of the other order of which he was a member attended the funeral, the pall bearers being selected from the officers of the Elks as well as from the Woodmen of the World, the B. of R. T. and U. C. T. Rev. F. C. Smith, of the Episcopal church, preached the sermon while Lawyer D. Worth Clark delivered a eulogy to the worth and untimely demise of the splendid young citizen and business man, Roland W. Holmes. Musical numbers were furnished by a quartette and by Samms' orchestra. The chair of the office of the Elks' lodge which the deceased filled while in life was vacant and was draped in mourning during the services. A brother of the deceased from Indiana arrived this forenoon to attend the funeral.
