The body of Charles S. Coverdale was laid to rest yesterday, death having claimed him Tuesday.

Deceased was the eldest son of John Coverdale of this county and was born July 23, 1879.  His mother died when Charles was a mere boy, and being deprived of a mother's guidance he grew up on the streets and the range, and was of a roving disposition.  he went to Colorado and contracted mountain fever, but was able to come home.  Reaching here he soon lapsed into unconsciousness and was never fully able to tell where or how much property, if any, he left in Colorado.  The fever resulted in meningitis of which he died.

The funeral service was conducted by Rev. H. L. Gleckler assisted by Miss Mary Crawford.
