Cumberland was well represented at the funeral yesterday of John (sic, George H) Herron, who was accidentally killed at the Carnegie Steel Works, Dusquesne, Pa and who was buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, Lonaconing. In the Cumberland contingent were Capt F Brooke Whiting, Sergeant Charles Ross, Trumpter William Baillie, Corporals M Sperry and William Bowman and the local Army recruiting staff.  The firing squad and pallbearers were all former comrades of the deceased in the Phillipine Insurrection.  The military feature of the funeral was under the command of Capt F Brooke Whiting and the impressive military service in its full at its close, Trumpter William Baillie sounded 'Taps' so feelingly there was hardly a dry eye in the large concourse of people that went to the cemetery to pay respect to the popular young man who came to such an untimely end.
