There are a few of his own Comrades to march to the grave this afternoon with the body of Charles E. Tucker, Civil War Veteran, whose death cut down the slender ranks of the G.A.R. But when the obsequies for this sturdy old veteran are held at two o'clock this afternoon at Lester Ruffner's, veterans of later wars are expected to fill the blank files, and do honor to the defender of his country. A call goes out to all the ex-service men who can possibly spare a half hour or more of their time to gather at the Chapel in honor of the spirit that has flown. A color guard and firing squad from among those whose soldiering days came many years later, will do honor to Charles E. Tucker, who did his fighting for Old Glory in the sixties.

Mr. Tucker was born in Vermont in 1837. He is survived by a widow, and three married daughters, and two sons: Mrs. F. S. Rosser, Mrs. Stella Tucker, Clinton and Norman Tucker, of Prescott, Az., and Mrs. Eva Pickering, of Fresno.
