The funeral of WILBUR HEDGES, which occurred on Monday, was a large one indeed, and showed the regard in which the deceased was held by the community in general. The members of the Temple of Honor turned out some 50 strong and followed their dead brother to the grave, paying him the last tribute of respect with the usual impressive ceremonies of the brotherhood.
