With simple ceremony, nitiile im

Horrowiiiff friends rind youthful piny,

tlio mother whom hr had enshrined
in his heart ah n nint wns buried.

of nil with whom he camo in contact,
wcro consigned to thotr Inst restingj

tribute can bo paid nny man tiian
was paid Sunday to Ed. It prored
tho largest funenil Medford ever saw,
and was made remarkable by the
number of children, nl! friends of tho
gentle old man, who sorrowfully
placed a flower upon his bier and
dropped a tear in nnssuijr. They had
lost a friend and playmate. Nine
hundred friondi filed by the retaaliia
to jraro for the last tinio upon all
that was mortal of a man, who
through more than 40 years had held
tho regard, esteem and love of those
among whom he lived and worked.
And had the house of worship been
enlarged to double its size it would
not have accomodated Ed'a friends,
gathered to pay their last respects.
Tho street without was filled with
friends who stood with bared heads
as the remains were carried from tho
church for tho journey to Iheir last
'I juj est of Funeral.
There may have been moro elabor
ate funerals in Medford than that of
Ed Root, but none has ever called
forth pcoplo from so many walls of
life, nor moro genuinely sorrowful
Ed Hoot's passing was a personal
loss to hundreds.
The last services were held at 2:30
o'clock from tho Baptist church.
From tho samo spot in 1899 his moth
er was bnrried. This fact, and Edr
love for his mother, was attested by
n postal card found in his effects
carrying a picture of the chnrch up
on which Ed bad noted that it was
from that house of worship his moth
cr had been buried.
ino services were opened with a
hong,"Somcdny," by a quartette after
which Itcv. W. F. Shields, who had
known Ed longer than nny pastor in
the city, read the lesson from the 90th
and 23rd Psalm. Following prayer
Rev. Shields took for his text the
fourth and fifth verses of the H2ud
Shields' Eloquent Sermon.
An eloquent tribute 'was paid Mr.
Itoot by Mr. Shields, who-pointed out
Ed's hterling qualities honesty,
trustworthiness, fidelity, truth. From
his lifo he drew the lesson that these
great heart qualities, not wealth, nor
worldliness, made men great. He
apoko of Ed's grrut love for his moth
er, for the children, for his dog.
UisH Haicelrigg concluded tbe cere
monies with n Mlo, "The Reautiful
Hie of Somewhere," Then the friends
filed by for ono last look upon the
kindly face they knew so weu.
Several hundred friends, many of
them children, marched as far as tho
Juekson Street bridge with tho re
mains. In the lino of march were
the members of the Men's Bible class
of the Baptist church, the entire
force of the Mail Tribune, tbe Boy
ficouts and nearly 300 children. Along
the street stood hundreds of citizens,
mostly with bared heads as the hearse
passed. The pall bearers, chosen
from the Men's Bible clnhs of the
Baptist church of which Ed van a
member, were S. I. Burnett, William
I)ais, E. B. Stiason, P. II. Dailey,
A. A. Aikens and W. C. Wilson,
Tho floral offerings were profuse
enough being sent to bank both Ed's
gravo and that of his mother, by
whose bide he lies. Among those who
sent flowers were, Tho Iowa society,
the socialist local, tho Medford Sun,
the Mail Tribune, the Men's Biblo
class, Mr. and Mrs. W. II. (lore, A.

ItU and what-not for rheumatlam, but
they all lack tho firm easantlal lo being
a natural medicine. To begin with, rheu.
mat Urn In simply a narno given to deal
nato a variety of pains, and can only bo
reached by irrigating the entlro blood aup.
fly with a naturally tualmllatlve unit
dote True, the palna may be eased with
narcotics or the acids may bo noutrallied
for the tlma being with other acids. Hut
these merely temporize nnd da not even
lead to a cure. There is but ono stand
ant rheumatism remedy, and it reflects
the best thnusht of tho day. It is pre
pared In the great Hwlft tatoratory In
Atlanta, Qa und sold In all drug stores
under tho luime of U. H, S. at 11.09
Htarvatlon lm been advocated by many
as a cure for rheumatism, and yet 8. H. H.
accomplishes Jn fact what faddists pro.,
claim In theory and without the punish
ment of starvation. Hot spring and
sweating are often recommended, but
8. 8, B. does all that Is expected of theso
cxpenilvo and weakening methods.
It is conceded by the closest students
of the subject that rheumutlum Is canned
in most cies by an aeld condition of tho
blood and aggravated by the remedies
commonly used for relief. In other cases
rheumatism Is the result of nerve riepres
ion; in still others It is tho effect of
omo scrofulous blood condition, having
been treated with mercury, iodides, arso
n lo and other potaonous mineral drugs.
