Adair County Democrat (Newspaper) - May 31, 1929, Stilwell, Oklahoma Decoration Day THE BIVOUAC OF THE DEAD By Theodore O'Hara. The muffled drum's sad roll, has heat ..The soldier's last tatoo; No more on Life's parade shall meet The brave and fallen few. On Fame's eternal camping-ground Their silent tents are spread, Arid glory guards, with solemn round, The bivouac of the dead. Rest on, embalmed and sainted dead! Dear as the blood ye gave; No impious footstep here shall tread, The herbage of your grave; Nor shall your story be forgot, While Fame her record keeps, Or Honor points the Where valor proudly sleeps. Yon marble minstrel's voiceless stone In deathless song shall tell, When many a vanished age hath flown The story how ye fell; Nor wreck, nor change, nor winter's blight Nor time's remorseless doom, Shall dim one ray of glory's light That gilds your deathless tomb. SEVENTEEN CARS BERRIES MARKETED HERE SO FAR Ten cars of Klondykes, two cars of Klondykes and Aromas have been ship ed from here and five cars have gone out by truck and express, according to Perry Ethridge of the C. & E. Produce company. The fust half o fthe berries brought top prices but the last half of the crop fe}l down on account of continued rains. When the berries were picked and packed wet they would hot stand �up- ii, shipping*, Etheridge said. "One of the principal troubles with the market here is the fact that there are not enough Aroma berries -to make shipping profitable on this variety,'" Etheridge ,said.

WATTS MAN DEAD ENGLEWOOD, N. J., May 27 - Miss Anne Morrow, daughter of Ambassador and Mrs. Dwight W. Morrow and Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh were married at the bride's home here Monday afternoon. The ceremony, witnessed by only a few friends in addition to the immediate family,' was performed by Rev. William Adams Brown of Union Theological seminary., New York. Immediately afterward, Ambassador Morrow left for Washington. The honeymoon plans of the couple were kept secret. Apparently the ceremony was decided upon suddenly, and took even the most intimate neighbors of the Morrows by surprise and completely "scooped" the small army of reporters and news photographers who for weeks have looked fprward to depicting the romantic event in great detail in print "j and picture. .. Colonel Lindbergh and his fiancee went for a ride in the early afternoon, and stopped for a brief visit at the home of a friend in Englewood. Shortly after their return-barely time for the bride to change her chic motor ensemble for soft chiffon, the small wedding party gathered in the drawing room and centered about the minister. There were no bridesmaids, no best man, no music, it was stated authoratively. Just the brief ceremony of the Presbyterian church. Ambassador Morrow arrived onluy Sunday from Mexico City, and instead Joe Williams, 83 years old, died at his home in Watts Tuesday. Funeral services werfi held: Thursday" afternoon and interment was made m a cemetery near SUoam Springs; Mr. Williams was janitor of Watts high school. the Pioneer Indian Dies at Bunch Rev. J. M. Haygood conducted the funeral and arrangements, were, in charge of the Roberts Undertaking Parlor. Captain Jackson W. Ellis, pioneer In dian resident and prominent figure of Territorial days, died at his home near Bunch Saturday at the age of 73 years. Captain Ellis became affiliated with the Indian Police early in his life and rode with them for more than 25 years, according to old residenters. In his younger days he rode the western part of the state and later was transferred to this section. He was for many years captain of the '"Light Horse Brigade," the name by which the Indian police were known. He was influential in political and tribal affairs until most of the power was taken from the hands of the tribes and many stories are told of his man-euv'erings. The Captain had been in ill health for some time. He is survived by his wife, three sons and a brother, Mitch Ellis, of Sallisaw. His son, Jack, and wife of Detroit were present for the funeral. WOULD REVISE FOR OFFICIALS Gulager is Chairman of Committee Which Will Consider Revamping Schedule of Salaries. The Muskogee Daily Phoenix Thurs day had the following to say about the appointment of Ed Fry of Sallisaw tQ the post of assistant United States attorney at Muskogee: i , i ' 'Ed Fry of Sallisaw, power of the republican party in Sequoyah /County is slated to become, assistant district attorney here succeeding J. H. Wilkins, who is to resign. This change is expected to go into effect in the near future. �>�� ,:� "Frank Lee, U. S. District attorney,  last night said that the change probably would be made and that a definite announcement will be made within a few day's. If Wilkins resigns, it" will not be effective Before July 1, Lee said. "The move brings an interesting line- , up in the scramble for the federal jobs here. "Fry long has been a wheelhorse in his district for some time, but he hasn't been on particularly good terms with Sen. W. B. Pine, who's been ruling things for going on four years. Fry's appointment means but one / thing, that is that he and Pine are on good terms again. Just who made the ; advances is not known but it is a ' known fact that with William Skelly, : Tulsa oil magnate and member of the national committee in the race for the senator's post, Pine must have the eastern Oklahoma organization behind him. The one with the majority of the v organization will get the nomination, easy.' " . "At the - same, time> Fry's apppint-ment indicates that Henry Cooper, marshal, and Lee, both who are seeking-return to office, are not far separated. Fry and Cooper have long worked together, and with Fry getting a job, it appears that all three may be pulling, together.
