Like a lightning flash the ?>??\? of the President'a

authorised a statement in hU name that there waa
Kood ground tor encouragement.
Dr. Pliss had retired after bearing from the
Prealdent in person thai he felt entirely comfort?

??id? ?i hope just as the cottage closed at 10 o'clock,
and Colonel Rockwell had als?, spoken emphat?

Biberon, .sitting yy?iIi?h a stone's throw of the Pre
Id? "it's room, only heard the rumor that the Pr?s

The Urei news they beard at that short distane
was some one calling in a low, mournful voice oui
of the darkness toward the President'a
cottage, " Associai? d Press say dead."
Half the correspondents had gone to the Weal

Soon after noon Secretary Hunt came ?nun

Much anxiety was enused by the f.iet that the
temperature did not rise, above the normal range
which indicates that the vitality of the patient was
growing gradually less. All the inembcru of the
Cabinet excepting Secretaries Maine and I,incolti

"Alter he wa voi?tuled the limited area of lraa>
I matea trouble in Urn lower uoi'licu of the loba oi the
right lim?? was found due to hypostatie congestion.
This was eansed by proximity to the inflamed dia?
phragm perforated by the bullet, the inflammation
being aggravated by nearness to the fractured rib.
Thi* congestion increased m intensity, though not
in area, awing to the long continued recumbent po?
sition of the patient. There was no difficulty in
breathing, and no cough at that time, nor until the
parotid trouble. When the latter became aggra?
vated the pus froni the gland found its way into the
mouth, and the coughing efforts to throw it o(T be
i-igdil??cull und emit muons, induced an inllamma
tion of the niueous membrane of the mouth.
"The pus continuing to cause this cough, the in?
flammation extended to the throat, then to the
larynx-, und thence to the bronchial tubes down?
ward. This inthuninat ion naturally extended tothe
riffhVbeeouae the patientnearlv all the time lav on
that side, and when it reached the neighborhood of
fc?e atmeten lung was naturally morbid in that di?
rection During all this time the septic condition
ol the blood was doing its work, and when the Inn?
and bronchial affection at but met, they found
a deranged and enfeebled system at a very lo
irradi?. Mill, the blood lesions wer.? all repairing a,
this time. The conjunction of the two inflamma?
tions came at. the iie-t opportunity for the dia?
semination of the combined activities of each, and
there was a spreading of the united troubles. The?
healing ot the lesions \\ :is stopped at about this

posai of pus in the luiu-s. If any pus is now in the
tight lung.il isi.t indicated, and the deposit musi
nave occurred within the pad three or four ?lavs.
? tid the amount would be oxtasmely small, If there
was noi innutrition the patient would beali!? to

even yet, but (her.? is Innutrition, The healing pro?

Although not unexpected, the news of the

many pcTCOna went to their homes in a some?

Icaro the sad ne ara by the solemn
tolling of church boflo and the lu arse shouts
nf newsboys. The announcement that tho end
bad ionie was all the more sudden lie
cause of the comparatively Cavorablo char?
acter of the litter reports and from
the fact (hat the jihysieiaiis had said
that death would probably come gradually.
Genera! Arthur heard tlie news of the Presi?
dent's death from a TniUUVB reporter. He was
unteli affected. At L2t2ff a. ni. ti:?? official no?
tifie.itimi was received from the Cabinet.
