MILITARY FUNERAL HAS NOVEL EFFFCTS A unique feature at the funer- al of Edward Stowell, a Spanish- American War w~teran, at Forest Lawn last Sunday was the sound- ing of taps and the responding echo by father and sot'. John Resch, city license inspector, a bugler in the Spanish-American War, sounded taps; and the echo was taken up by his son, Jack, thirteen years old, stationed in a distant ravine. Jack is an excel- lent bugler, and the distant strains, repeating his father's, could scarcely be distinguished from the natural echos of the father's bugle resounding among :he trees and bills. A military funeral at Forest Sawn is always something long to be remembered by ev(ryone in ~ttendance on account of the set- tings which seem to have Been made for such an occasion. There are fe.w places where such effects could be produced. At a military funeral the firing squad fires three volleys over the grave, then tgps are sounded and the bugler stationed afar repeats the strain as though it were an echo from heaven. At Forest Lawn the second bugler is stationed behind some hill and sometimes a third and fourth ~bugler are stationed in some distant ravine. The reports of the rifles of the firing squad sound as though they were more than three volleys, for the reports echo from forest and hills back again. Then the bugler takes up his notes, and these likewise echo and re-echo. The second buglar's tones do likewise, and when there are a third and fourth bugler in the ravines about the effect is worth going miles to hear. It is usually difficult to distinguish which are the real echos one hears and which the tones from the bugles in the ravines.
