BODY OF BRAVE YOUNG OFFICER LAID TO REST

Special to The Oklahoman.

Checotah, Okla., March 29 -

Probably the largest crowd that ever assembled in Checotah
attended the funeral today of Herman Odom, son of Sheriff
W L Odom, who was killed in a fight with the Snakes at the
home of Chitto Harjo last Thursday evening. The funeral
services were held at the Baptist church at 2 p.m., conducted
by the Rev. D.E. Millichamp. The Modern Woodmen lodge, of
which young Odom was a member, attended in a body. All the
business houses were closed for two hours.

Herman Odom was 22 years old. He has been in this country
for a number of years and for two years has been doing service
for his father as a deputy. He was well known and popular.

The body of Edward Baum, city marshal, who was killed in the
battle Thursday evening, was shipped to Fort Smith, his former
home, for interment.
