R., who requested thatin the death of the comrade the keeper should at once notify the post of the death, as he desired to be buried in Webster. His son visited the farm on Friday, and to his astonishment found that his father died Thursday morning and was buried. He returned home, informed the relatives of the death and the utter disregard of wishes of the friends by the person in charge, and the sudden burial even without proper notification as per request.
    The matter, no doubt, will be brought before the city authorities. His remains will be taken up and brought to Webster for interment, as he wished to lie with his kindred.
