Tiger." screamed a sobbing worn
an's voice, and seven thousand
persons.Upsed into silence to hear
last honors to departed Theodore

For more ! than an hour, that
one burst of emotion and a series

broke the stillness of Atlanta's
municipal auditorium. ' '
As the casket was borne in, pre
ceded by a vested choir, and Ti
ger s lodge orethern In full re
galia, all swaying, moving even
slower than the death march
from the vast organ, the booming
voice of Flowers pastor chanted
a sonorous benediction.
From the group of relatives
seated near the rostrum, banked
high with ' flowers, tire voiee . of
Tiger's sister rose:
"No mo Tiger, no mo Tiger
hold ; the. boat and let me go
want to see him again."
From that dramatic point on,
the ceremonies were marked by a
quiet, almost . stiff formality, un
til one of Tigers' white friends
had paid ? him highest prates.
When .Morgan c Blake.- sporting
editor of the Atlanta Journal, had
completed a' brief address,; the
assemblage broke into a long
thunder, of applause.
