well for sleeping accommodations as for
an office. As things prospered with him,
however, he built the handsome resi

on knoll of ground on Vermillion street

men Mr. Cannon has a weakness fur get

The interior of the house Is nicely fur

a Miss Ssxton. On account of the prom

family, this niaiujon has boon for years
the headquarters for the reception of
distinguished visitors in Canton. Dur

Arthur, Senator Sherman and his bro

wide, comfortable porch runulng all

Mr. McKlnloy's law office and that of
his brother, who Is also his partner. This

was put up by the two brothers from the
profits of their business. The property

and takes great jiersomU interest in all
the operations upon them.

For the last few years Mrs. MoKlnley
has been an invalid, so that the old
house, which used to be theoenter of the
social gnysties of the city, is now but
seldom thrown open to visitors. Occa
sionally, however, Maj. McKln'.ey gives
pnbilo rscoption of a political nature,
and then the house is orowdod. Mr. and
