Lien—Billy Talked a Moment AMES IA June 28—In the woods pasture on the farm where she lived as a girl surrounded only by graves of a few members of her own family under the shade Of trees some of them planted by her own hand was laid to rest today a woman whose influence on the whole country will never be measured She was the mother of Billy Sunday A strange funeral procession it was passing by the well kept cemetery of the city with great monuments marking the resting place of many whose names have not been heard outside of this little community The procession wound down a country lane turning aside at an unfrequented road through an orchard a garden a barn lot into a pasture where nothing but a footpath marked the way to a little plot inclosed with a board fence There it halted and left to its final sleep the body of Mary Jane Sunday-Stowell who gave to the world the greatest evangelist of modern times DILLY TALKED ONE MINUTE In his 1-minute talk to the old friends slid neighbors at the funeral services today Billy Sunday said: "Mother might have been buried in any clime In the most picturesque place amidst the most noted scenery—she might have slept on the banks of the Hudson—anywhere her heart desired But her heart in the last days turned with longing to the old trees with which bte was familiar Here she asked to be laid away" And there she was laid away under the branches of a great oak on one side and a tall evergreen on the other The evergreen she had planted years ago with her own hands and as she planted it a monument to those she loved and bad lost a small boy stood by her side watching her at her work That boy was her youngest son favorite of her Insert and the world knows him now as Billy Sunday HE WEPT 'NEATH HER TREE Mr Sunday himself stood under the shade of the evergreen today taking his place there by choice and looked on with tear dimmed eyes while her coffin was lowered in the grave The grave Itself is just between those of her father and mother Mr and Mrs Squire M Corey and on either side are simple headstones marking where were buried two sisters and three children When the Rev T E Thuresson pastor of the Methodist Church here of which Mrs Sunday bad been a member dosed his short funeral Sermon Billy Sunday stepped to his mother's coffin and said: "I would like to speak to you old neighbors and friends and thank you for your kindness and your sympathy In welcoming us back to this town where we lived among you I do not know what I would do if I should come back here and not find the old familiar friends who were so good to us when as a boy I sold vegetables from the farm along these streets" THE TOILING HANDS AT REST He named over a list of old friends who were in the audience The hands that worked so hard for us boys then are now at rest She mended our clothes she soothed us to sleep comforted our little sorrows In those days you were our friends I thank you for this last service of love to us "I remember once when we were small lads (the other boy was Edward) she told us to go out and cut some wood It was almost dark and we were afraid to go alone We said 'Mother if you will go with us we will not be afraid' So mother went with us and stood by and every once in a while we would look up and see if mother as still there until we had finished the work "So I know that mother will watch over me yet until I have finished my work and God will say 'It is enough Come up here to Heaven' and I shall see her again "I would like to speak to you" Mr Sunday said turning to the coffin "but I cannot A bird with a broken wing had as- well attempt to fly as that I should try to speak to you now" ALWAYS WAS GOOD TO MOTER VI H omen were sobbing and men were in tears when Sunday closed with the reference to the resting place of his mother on the old home farm In her last days she had no need to fight against obstacles of any kind Billy Sunday has eared for his mother abundantly since be grew to manhood But as Ames re-Members her she was the mother bard Dressed by circumstances Even in that day Ames recalls the fact that William was a great stay to her The old time citizens here who knew them will not admit that Billy Sunday ever was an unworthy man-ayes sconxe atur's CHAMPIONS "He was good to his mother" the I WO men here say of him "even when be was a little fellow" "That boy always was a worker" the Ohd men say "He helped his mother and worked hard" - One need not stay in Ames an hour to understand why Billy Sunday is not afraid to challenge the hosts of sin to look Into his past life The people here are his champions Today brought Out the affection the people of the town have for him It was the simplest of services that were held over his mother It was Such a funeral ter all the world as wolsid be given a respected resident Of 11 VOL 79 NO 155 BILLY'S MOTHER AT REST any old home town There was nothing of the notoriety seeking feature about it There was no curious staring crowd to mar the memory of the scene Those who attended the funeral and went to the grave for the greater part were acquaintances of intimacy old neighbors close friends and relatives BUT THE CHURCH WASN'T PILLED The crowd was not large The Methodist Church the biggest in the city was only comfortably filled At 9:30 o'clock a half hour before the hour of the funeral a reporter for The Star went to the church expecting it to be filled He found less than a dozen there old folks who are accustomed to going early for any service tip in front some women were placing the flowers on the casket and about the altar The flowers themselves were those that had been gathered from the gardens of Ames this morning If there was a cut flower design of any kind there it was not conspicuous At the close of the services the coffin was opened and the crowd passed by as they do at old home town funerals The hearse that carried the coffin was pulled by horses and the pallbearers rode in a town hack Not one thing was done that would not have been done at the funeral of Mary Jane Sunday old resident of Ames if her name had not been so famously linked with one the world clamors to CREDIT TO BILLY'S MOTHER Here in Ames it is unanimously believed that whatever mighty work Billy Sunday has rendered to the world is very largely because of the influence of the mother who was buried today on the old home farm Mrs Sunday was 76 years old She was born in 'Indiana near where she passed away last Sunday morning in Vincennes She was married three times First to William Sunday who was killed in the war
