It was seen that the end was near at hand and those nearest and dearest to the strick en president were summoned forv "Our earnest prayer is that God will graciously vouchsafe prosperity, happiness and peace to all our neighbors and lihe blessings to all the peoples and powers of the earth." Last Public Utterance of President McKinley the offices of the last farewell. The president came out of a stupor about 7 o'clock and while his mind was partially clear there occurred the last endearments, the last submission of the sufferer to the will of the Almighty, the last murmured expressions from his dying lips, and the last goodbyes. In this interval of consciousness Mrs. Mc Kinley was brought into the death chamber. The president had asked to see her. She came and sat beside him, held his hand, and heard from him his last words of encouragement and com fort Then she was led away and not again during his living hours did she see him. The president himseit fully realized that his hour had come, and his mind turned to his Maker. He whispered feebly: "Nearer, My God, to Thee," the words of the hymn always dear to his heart, Then in faint accents he murmured: "Goodby, all, goodby. It is God's way. His will be done, not ours.'' Grouped about the bedside in his last moment, were the only brother of the president, Abner McKinley, and histo wife, Miss Helen McKinley and Mrs. Sarah Duncan, sisters of the president: Miss Mary Barber, niece Miss Sarah Duncan, niece Lieutenant James P. McKinley, William M. Duncan and John Barber, nephews P. M. Osborne, a cousin Secretary George B. Cortel you, Charles G. Dawes, controller of the currency Colonel Webb C. Hayes and Colonel William C. Brown. With these directly and indirectly connected with the family were those others who had kept ceaseless vigilthe white garbed nurses and the uniformed ma rine hospital attendants. In the ad joining room were Doctors Charles McBurnej, Eugene Wasdin, Roswell Park, Cbarles G. Stockton and Herman Mynter The president's death was caused by gangrene, an autopsy revealing the fact that the wounds showed pronounc- Last Words ot President McKinley ed traces of gangrenous condition. It is thought by some that the bullets the assassin used were poisoned. Brief funeral services were held at the Milburn house Sunday morning, after which the body was borne out to the waiting 'cortege on the brawny shoulders of eight sailors and soldiers of the republic. The cortege passed through solid walls of living humanity, bareheaded and grief stricken, to the city hall, where the body lay in state Sunday afternoon. There a remark able demonstration occurred, which proved how close the president was to the hearts of the people. Arrange ments had been made to allow the pub lic to view the body from the time it arrived, at about 1:30 o'clock until 5 o'clock, and the throngs of people who were eager to get a last look at the preaident was so dense that they were wedged into the streets for blocks. Monday morning the body was taken to the station by a military escort, and at 8:30 the funeral train, consisting of seven cars, started for Washington over the Pennsylvania railroad. Mrs. McKinley, President Roosevelt, the cabinet and relatives and friends of the dead president, accompanied the re mains. Some very beautiful tributes the memory of the murdered presi dent were given along the route of the funeral train which reached Washing ton at 9 o'clock Monday night where the remains were carried under the es cort of a squadron of United States cavalry to the executive mansion, where they, remained until" 9 o'clock Tuesday morning.^" The account of the fuperal at the VOLUME XXY.

When it became known that the president was dying, Vice-President Roosevelt, who was at Mount Marcy, in the Adarondack mountains on a hunting trip, wrs notified and started at once for Buffalo, reaching there Saturday, at 1:40 p. m., and he took the oath of office the same day, and be came at once president of the United States. Before taking the oath, Colonel Roosevelt drove to the Milburn house on a visit of condolence to Mrs. Mc Kinley. He then returned to the Wil cox house, where he met the five mem bers of the cabinet present in the city, and a number of other people of promi nence. Secretary Root, as ranking member of the cabinet, said: Mr. Vice-PresidentI am requested by all the members of the cabinet who are present in Buffalo, including all but two of the cabinet, to request that for reasons of weight affecting the ad ministration of the government, you proceed without delay to take the oath of office of president of the United States. Colonel Roosevelt, in a rather strain ed voice, but clearly and with grave decision of manner, said briefly: Mr. SecretaryI shall take the oath in accordance with the request of the members of the cabinet, and in this hour o deep distress and national be reavement, I wish to state that it shall be my concern to continue absolutely unbroken the policy of President Mc Kinley for the peace, prosperity and the honor of our beloved country. Judge Hazel, of the United States district court, w-ho had been selected for that purpose, then proceeded to ad minister the constitutional oath. As the repetition of the oath was conclud ed Theodore Roosevelt became, by this simple act, vested with full power as president o'f the United States of America TOM PRESIDENT'S DEATH. The Sad News in Princeton Memorial Services in Memory of the Dead Presi dent. The news of the president's death on Saturday morning cast a gloom over the entire community.

On Sunday evening memorial services were held in the Congrega tional church. Dr. Tarbox, Prof. White and Mr. Wright made remarks on the life, character and official acts of the president.

At the court house the officials draped a large portrait of McKinley in mourning and hung it o\er the main entrance. The offices were cldsed in the afternoon. O Ship of State. The beautiful words of the poet Long fellow on the "Building of the Ship" are so timely and suggest so much faith in the perpetuity of American in stitutions that we can all read the fol lowing stanza with renewed interest at this time: Thou, too sail on, O Ship of State' Sail on O Union, strong and great' Humanity with all its fears, With all the hopes of future years Is hanging breathless on thy fate' We know what master laid thy keel What workmen wrought thy ribs of steel, Who made each mast, and sail, and rope, What anvils rang, what hammers beat, In what a forge and what a heat Were shaped the anchors of thy hope' Fear not each sudden round and shock Tis of the wave and not the rock 'Tis but the flapping of the sail And not a rent made by the gale In spite of rockand tempest's roar, In spire of false lights on the shore Sail on, nor fear to breast the sea' Our hearts, our hopes, are all with thee, Our faith triumphant o'er our fears Are all with theeare all with thee Wm. Parrington, son of Philander Parrington, was taken to the institute for the blind at Faribault this week, where he will take up studies in that institution. The Farrington boy was stricken with blindness a few years ago. His retired one night and on awakening the next morning he found himself totally blind.
