Couch Funeral Today

The funeral for Jesse Couch, who was killed here a few days ago through the explosion of a gasoline tank on which he was working , was held this afternoon from the Dilley parlors on Third Street.  The burial was in charge of the local camp of Spanish-American War veterans, who attended in a body.  The Institute band headed the procession that preceded the funeral cortege to the grave in South Park.  A large number of people  assembled on Third Street  to witness the procession as it left the undertaking parlors.
