Sommer, which consists of himself, wife and aon, together with his partner, Otto Koch, nearly met their death Satur day. Even yet the effects of the poi son are such that the doctors in charge of the case cannot positively declare that all danger Is past. After the Sommer family and Koch had finished their almost fatal repast Mrs. Sommer fed some scraps of tho meat to the chickens and out of a brood of fourteen four of the little chicks are already dead and the rest are expected to die at any time. The matter has been called to the attention of the board of health and if the analysis of the meat proves that It Is of the "embalmed" variety the butcher who sold it to the Sommers will be arrested and prosecuted.

The meat waa purchased by Mrs. Sommer from an uptown butcher some time Friday, but his name or place of business Bho refuses to reveal.

From numerous friends of Mr. Mc- Klnley, Mrs. Barber this evening re ceived telegrams of condolence on the death of her sister. Among them were telegrams from President Roosevelt and Vice President Fairbanks. Mrs. McKinley's life of almost sixty years had been made familiar to the nation by the fact that more than half of it was a period of invalldlsm. Through all this, however, she showed a firm and unwavering belief in the career of her husband and by her cheering words, in spite of personal afflictions, encouraged him when there was darkness at hand. Hopes Are Realized She believed that his star of destiny would never set until he had become president of this land and for more than a quarter of a century cherished that belief until her hopes were rea lized. After President McKinley's death she expressed a desire to join him and prayed day by day that she might die. Later, however, she frequently told friends that she desired to live until the completion of the McKinley mau soleum, which is the gift of the nation, and which is to be dedicated on Monu ment hill September 30 next. Ida Saxton McKinley was born In Canton June 8, 1847. James A. Sax ton-her father, was an intellectual and progressive business man and banker, his wife a woman of extraordinary culture and refinement. Ida Saxton was reared in a home of comfort and ease. After attending Canton schools she was a pupil at a private school at Delhi, N. Y. Later she went to a Cleveland academy and finished her education at Brook Hall seminary, Media, Pa., where she spent three years. Part of her younsr womanhood was spent in the Stark county bank, which belonged to her father. On several oc casions she had charge of the institu tion. While she taught Sunday school in the Presbytftrlan church young Law yer Wllllarrt McKtnley was superin tendent of the First Methodist Episco pal Sunday school. Among many admirers and suitors the handsome young soldier, who had been with Grant and Sheridan and won distinction in the Shenandoah valley, was the favored one. Gives Daughter to McKinley By James Saxton, her father, these words were spoken to McKinley when the hand of the daughter was gained: "You are the only man I have ever known to whom I could intrust my daughter." On January 26, 1871, William Mc- Kinley and Ida Saxton were united In marriage. The wedding was the first performed in the then new Pres byterian church. After an eastern trip, including Washington, and a short time of board ing, the McKinleys purchased the home on North Market street which in PRICE: SINGLE COPY, 5 CENTS; SUNDAY, 10 CENTS MRS. WILLIAM McKINLEY later years became famous as the Mc- Kinley cottage. It was during their short sojourn tn this home that Mrs. McKinley's health broke down under the burden of grief that was theirs. There were born to them two daughters, Katie, on Christ mas day of 1871, and Ida, on April 1, 1878. Ida died in August, 1873, and Katie the following year. During this period Mrs. McKinley's mother also passed away, and under the combined burden of these losses Mrs. McKinley became ftn invalid. Devoted to Husband Her life as the wife of William Mc- Kinley was a most happy and devoted one. They never "kept house" while he was in congress because of her in valid state. She, however, desired to be with him as much as possible and spent much time in Washington. On his campaign tours while he was con gressman, governor and president she Journeyed with him so far as prac ticable. After Governor MoKlnley's term of office ended they came to Canton in January, 1896, in time to celebrate their silver wedding anniversary in the first home of tneir early married life. This wedding anniversary was the be ginning of a year and two months' resi dence in Canton, during which time Mr. McKinley was nominated and elected president of the United States. At Washington, as the first lady of the land, she was unable to act as hostess at brilliant social functions. After the crushing blow which came to her when the assassin's bullet struck down her husband, friends despaired of her life for a month or more. However, ehe rallied and excepting periods of great depression for several years en joyed better health than usual. She would not consent to leave her Canton home. Mrs. McKinley was fond of the drama. She and her husband numbered as one of their most intimate friends the late Joseph Jefferson, who was fre quently a guest of the McKinleys. Made Slippers for Friends Among her diversions were the croch eting of slippers which she bestowed as keepsakes to friends, handed to the needy or given to bazaars. More than 8600 pairs of slippers were knitted by her and given away. Mrs. McKinley was fond of flowers, the rose being her favorite for many years. In recent years the President's carnation shared a place in her admiration. Bereft of children at an early stage of married life, she showed her int^se affection for children until the end of her life. It was a common thing for her to stop her carriage when driving along the street and call to her some prattling child and kiss it, or ask to embrace ah attractive baby. The McKinley estate, which was left by the president, was appraised at $215, 0 when the inventory was made. It has increased In value since that time. By the terms of the will of Mr. McKin ley, the estate at the death of Mrs. Mc- Kinley was to be divided equally among his brother, Abner McKinley, now de ceased, and sisters, Mrs. Duncan and Miss Helen McKinley of Cleveland. Mrs. Hermanus Baer (Mabel McKin ley) is the daughter and heir of Abner McKinley. NEWS OF MRS. McKINLEY'S DEATH CAUSES SORROW AT NATIONAL CAPITAL By Assorted Press.
