With sad and impressive funeral rites and ceremonies all that was mortal of the late Samuel Hopkins McGary was laid tenderly and lovingly to rest in Magnolia cemetery this afternoon, the funeral taking place from the residence at 5 o'clock. Sorrowing friends of the deceased gathered in large numbers at the home on North Grand avenue, and the funeral cortege which followed the remains to their last resting place was one of the largest ever seen in Beaumont. Impressive services were conducted at the home by Rev. C.A. Ridgely, pastor of the First Baptist church, and at the cemetery by Rev. J.A. Smart, pastor of the Magnolia Avenue Baptist church. Appropriate music was furnished by a quartet from the First Methodist church choir, and there was a great profusion of beautiful flowers, emblems and wreaths, among which was one exquisite wreath in the form of a cross sent by the printers of the Beaumont Journal.
