Washington, Oct. 27. It is stated that
by t he president's express'desire no order will
be issued by any of the executive officers
closing the departments today, although it
is highly probable that public business
- will be entirely suspended. In the United
States supreme court Chief Justice Fuller j
announced that as a mark of respect to the
president of the United States and to the
memory of Mrs. Harrison the court would
adjourn yesterday until Friday morn-'
lng. At abont noon President Harrison '

that if there were any important papers
waiting in the office to which his signa
was necessary he would examine them.
Especially if there were any recommenda-'
tions for pardon awaiting his action h
wanted them brought to his desk. Two

tions for pardon and he sigued them both. '

They began promptly at 10 o'clock and con
tinued not longer than twenty minutes.
Rev. Dr. Hamlin opened with the recita
tion of a few selections from the Scriptures
adopted to the occasion, closing with a
short invocation. Rev. Jjr. Bartlett then
read the Scripture lesson, following which
the hoys' choir of St. John's Episcopal
church, recessed in the adjoining parlor, I
Bang: "I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say,
Come Unto Me and Rest." Dr. Hamlin of
fered a closing prayer, and as those present
were leaving the room the choir rendered
Cardinal Newman's hym. "Lead Kindly
Taken to the Funeral Train.
As the attendants left the room the
casket was lifted by White House watch
men and messengers and tenderly ltorne to
the hearse awaiting at the door. In a few
minutes all was ready and the funeral cor

The current was so strong that the ami
mals went to their knees, throwing the
coachman to the ground. In falling the
horses pulled the carriage forward, caus
ing it to careen, throwing out the doctor
and Miss Joy.
Close Call for tbe Doctor.
The live wire came in contact with Dr.
Whittaker's throat, the electric shock ren
dering him unconscious. lie was badly
burned and cut, but soon regained con
sciousness. Miss Joy was seriously hurt,
and for a while was insensible. She wns
removed to Dr. Alber's office, near by, and
later taken home. Miss Corwin was struck
by one of the horses just as it broke from
the vehicle, thrown down, and Ibadly
bruised. The carriage was completely
wrecked and the horses considerably

Kingston, Ont., Oct. 27. About amonth
ago Miss Kilpatrick, claiming to be mar
ried and from St. Louis, applied at the
general hospital for a child for the purpose
of adoption. Arrangements were made with
a young woman from an eastern town, and
next day the foster mother arrived with a
full wardrobe for the infant and took it
awnv. In h few days she brought it back
I very sick, apparently dying, and though
' the actual mother had depaeted the hos-
i pital officials had to receive the sick infant.
The child recovered.
j Come Out Strong on Christening.
j The foster mother visits it daily, but can
not again be intrusted with the infant, be-
' cause of mind trouble. Tier marriage is a
' mental hallucination and her desire for a
child a freak of the same disease. Her
mania has also broken out in the direction
of christenings, which Lave been performed
at her request four times by four ministers
of different faiths, each not knowing that
the other had performed the rite until sus
picion was aroused and there was a com
parison of notes.
