Kinley, which were addressed to his
wife a few hours before his death. le
had previously murmured the words
of the hymn, "Nearer, my God, to
Thee," and soon after Mrs. McKinley
entered the room, when there was an
affecting farewell, after which he
lapsed into unconsciousness from
which he never recovered.
Thursday for the first time there

ley, and there was genuine apprehen
sion as to his condition. The food he
had taken in the morning did not agree
with him, and his pulse increased to
128, when one of his physicians said it
should be 96. For hours the President
failed to respond to the treatment, but
at midnight relief came and the physi
cians were much encouraged.
Between two and three o'clock Fri

experienced a sinking spell, and the

p. me., which was in accoid with the
news that came during the afternoon,
but he lingered until 2.16 o'clock
Saturday morning, when his spirit took
its flight from earth.
The following sketch of the life and
work of William McKinley is from the
pen of F. H. Richardson, of the At
lanta Journal:
William McKinley, like Andrew
Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, James A.
Garfield and Grover Cleveland, may
be said to have won his way to the
presidency, without the aid of acciden
tal influences.
He was born at Niles, Trumbull
County, Ohio, February 26, 1844. His
parents were in very moderate circum
stances, but took a great pride in their
boy, who at an early age displayed
unusual gifts. Young McKinley had
the benefit of training in the public
schools in the neighborhood from his
ninth year until the outbreak of the
civil- war, when he was a little past
Soon after the beginnmng of hostili
ties ho enlisted in the Twenty-third
regiment of Ohio volunteers, with
which command lhe served in various
capacities until the close of the war,
when ho was mustered out as captain
andi brevet major, having won the
latter title by gallantry on the field of
lHe was just a little past 21, and
took up the studly of law. He wats ad
mitted to the bar early in 1866, and
very soon acquired a considerable
practice by his devotion to bulsiness
and his attractive personal character
In 1869 lhe became prosecuting at.
torney for Stark County, in wvhich lie
had opened his first law oflice, and~ held
that position two years. His natural
love of politics developed about this~
time, lie became one of thie most
popular and effective of (lie Rtepubli..
can campaign speakers in his part of
Ohio, and was elected to the Forty
Fifth Congress, and held( his seat for
six consecutive terms Hie was then
defeated by (lie popuilar up~rising
against (lie tariff act of which he was
the chief author, and with which his
name is permanently connected.
He had not been in Congress long
before ho developed remarkable powers
as an orator and debater. H~e becam',
a favorite of his party by reason of his
readinese on all oc:.nsions, lisa st~rict
party loyalty and his efleacy in party
service. At the same time, his geni
ality and courtesy won for him many
friends amoiig his political antagonists.
Bef'ore ho was 40 years old Willham
McKinley was a recognizedi Republi
can leader and a pronminenit national
figure in politics.
The .nobility of his nature was prov
ed in the national conventioni of his
party In 1888, where ho was chairman
of the Ohio delegation. Ohio had pro.
sented John Sherman as its candidate
for President, but it became evident on
the first ballot that he could not be

much at sea. McKinley had more pei
sonal friends than any man whose nam
had been proposed to tie conveitio
and the Ohio delegation was ready t
go to him in a body. The suggestio:
of his nomination, which came fror
a delegate from another State, was re
ceived with a whirlwind of cheers. I
was a trying moment. Tlinre ie sat
the c3 nosure of all eyes, barely 41
years of age and with the Presidentia
nonanation of a great party seemicngl
in his each.
But lie was equal to the temptatiot
and proved the quality of his manhood
le arose in the convention and in ,
manner which left no doubt of his sin
cerity forbade most positively the usi
of his name by tihe multitudes that
clamored for his nomination. le said:
"I am here by a resolution of th
Republican cr'nvention of Ohio, passedi
without one dissenting vote, comninvid.
ing me to cast my vote for John Sher
man and to use every worthy endeavor
for his nomination. I accepted this
trust because my heart and judgment
were in accord with the letter and
spirit an( principle of that resolution.
I, has pleased certain delegates to cast
their votes for me. I cannot with hon
orable fidelity to John Sherman who
has trusted me in his cause and with
his confidence ; I cannot consistently
with my own views of personal integ
rity, consent or seem to consent., to
permit my name to be usedl as a cati
(late before the convention. I do not re.
quest, I demand, that no delegate who
would not cast reflection upon me shall
cast a ballot for me."
This noble speech in its dignity and
evident sincerity won the admiration
of the convention and made a host of
new friends for the rising man of his
McKinley gave another signal proof
of his devotion to John Sherman by
making him secretary of State in his
first cabinet against tLe advice of many
Republican leaders who felt that Sher.
man was too far past his prime to fill
the ofice properly. When it became
necessary to displace his old and lion
ored friend, President McKinley faced
and perforn-ed the most painful duty
of his life.
Benjamii Harrison was nominated
for President and elected in 1888, and
the Republicans secured a clear ma
jority in both houses of Congress.
William McKinley was put forward as
chairman of the ways aid means com
mittee to embody the then prevdlent,
views of his party on tariff legislatior.
But the McKinley bill was as extreme
in one direction as President Cleve
land's message of 1887, which cost him
a re-election in 1888, was in the other.
The country revolted at the higher du
ties laid by the Republican 'party in
the spring of 1890, and in the follow
ing tall the Democrats swept the Con
gressional elections.
McKinley was defeated for the
House, never to reappear as a mcem
her of that bod~y. But the confidlence
of his party ini William McKinley, both
in Oio and the country at large, was
not shaken by his defeat for Congress
in 1890. Ho became the Republican
nominee for Governor of Ohio in 18911
and was elected by a handsome ma
jority. lie was re-elected in 1893 by
a largely increased majority.
IIn 1896 lie Wats nominated as the
Republican canididate for Presidem en

foregone conicl usiona for months before

overwhelning majority, both of the
popular and electoral vote.
In 1900 McKiniley was nominiated
unanimously for a secondl term and in-.
creased bo0th his popular andl electoral
majorities over the same opponient
whom lie had defeated fouri years he
fore. Has popular majority was l23,.
677, by far the largest ever received
by aiiy presidential candidate.

utterance was at the Pau-Amnerican Ex

In that address he took strong gr'oum
in favor of freer trade with othme
nations, the repeal of non-reveniu<

Three Presidents of the United
States have sufl'ered at the h1an(s of c
assassins within the last thirty-six
years, and in two of the cases the iur
(lerous attempts were successful. Pre- at
si(ent Lincoln was shot, at 1. o'clock on
the night of April 14, 1865, and died
at 7:22 on the morning of April 15,
1805. President Garfield was siot oin
the morning of Jily 2,1881, and after a
linigering illness died on September 20 i
1881. The shooting of Presileit Me
Kinley has occurre(l just six months
and two days after his second acces
sion to the presideiicy.

thenl the solemn voice of Stanton broke st

President GarfliOld wis shot at the B3
Pennsylvania railroad depot in Wash
ington as he and Secretary lilaine were
about to depart for Long iranch. As
the two distinguished men were pass- Ai
ing through tIe iadies' waiting room,
two pistol shots rang out upon the air.
Mr. Blaine saw a mat ruilming and
started toward him, but, imniue(iatelh
turnied and saw the President lurch m
forward and fall. A moment, after
ward the assaissin, Charles .l. (Guiteau
was discovered, and was rescued with
(itliculty from the infuriated mob. A ti
pistol a very heavy calibre was wrench
ed out of his hand, and it became clear hI
that a large ball had enter'ed the Presi- ,e
dent's body. The bullet had entered |tht
the right side of the President's back, -d<
near tile spinal col umn~ andi immediate- id
ly over the hipbone. The sufferer to
moanedl at intervals; he was 3onlscious pl1
at, all time, except when under the inl- ai
Iluen1ce of opliates. Whlen, in answer in
to his eager questions, his~ physicians
informed him that he hiad "on1e chlance of
in a hlundred"' of living, lie said calmly am
and bravely; " Then, dloctor, we will mt

While President Garfield thlus linger- ci

demeaned himself as to win universal at

(lay of the crisis to the close tI
of Etlle .scene was such as to indic- b,
ate the profoundest sorrow and

e His Wife Reminds Him When

e Orders.
Al lanta constitiion.
My wife said she had a premonition
that, e would have an early fall and I
had better prepare for it right away.
She reminded mie that there were some
broken glass onl the roof of the flower
pit and the sitsh needed repainting 1111d
the shelVes Ienewing and I might
whitewash the brick wall and so Forth
and so fifth, and so on. W(eli, I have
Y done all that and was humbly waiting
for the next order when she told me
- that Sam, the darky, waaent coming to
run the lawn mower over the grass in
the front yard and maybe I could do it
and save 75 cents. Well, I have done
that, but nobody paid me the 75 cents
and next thing I knew she sent one of
the grandchildren to me for 75 cents to
pay her debt, to the aid society. These
women have got nearly as many clubs
and societies Its the men, but they stay
tat, home of nights and that is better
t than the men do. There are the
e asons and Odd Fellows and Nights
of Pythias and Nights of Damon and
the Royal Arcanum and the Elks and
the Nights of Jericho and Nights nf
Labor and they are all mights, or mid
ynights, and thle women have to stay t
home and nurse the children. If I
wts t marrying woman I would strike
out the word obey and put in a promise
for the uan that lie wouldent join any
thing that " took him away from home
at night." It's bad enough for young
folks to tramp around at, night hunting
for the moon. They are crazy about
the moon, and that's why crazy folks
are called lunatics-for luna means the
imoon and the ticks are not far off on a
- moonlight walk in the woods. Last
Tuesday night there were six couples
of our lunatics who went up the river
- road in search of the moon. rhey
wanted to see it rise from out tihe water
and they had to get out to the big, flat
rock in the river to see it, and they had
to elide down the batik to reach the
rock, and the young men co->nied it
iI down first to clear the way and the
f yaller jackets were waiting for them
andl by the time the girls were on the~
if slide the little devils begman the attack
- and they took 'em on the slide im the
n flank and in the rear, in the face and
-shirt waist and~ arms and legs, and took
s the young men, too, and such scream
,1, mng and scramblinig was never heard or
seeii in that., part of the country. 'lThe
ni young men did not desert their part
11 ners, but shoved them up the slide atgam .
'e with great. alacrity. The whole p~art~y
ir' were bunged upl amazing. Eyes and
i- ears and noses and hands andl legs b)0
m- gan to swell, and they never got to see
e the moon at all. The girls cried with
*s anguish and the boys moaned andl
groaiied and there was no ammonia,
I- no sOda, no dloctor and( no house with
t- in a mile. Trhey could just see enough
t to find the horses and by the time they
-got b~ack home some were blind in one
eye anid somne in bo0th, and you coutldent
y tell a hand f rom a foot, nor a nose froni
s a turnip beet noer the ankle from a calf
e -calf of the ieg, I mean. Well, they
s got home about midntighit, and that, 5
d mile ride was the longest and most
e miserable of their lives. The younug
e men have not, yet reportedl for duty
n nor have the girls dlared to look into a
i- mirror, for fear of breaking it. It is a
a wonder that those girls with such thin
5 apparel were not stuing to dleathi, but I
- upp~ose that the stuilhing and padding
I- ablouit the breastworks saved them.

many a business man snatches a luie

inedicine. It cures where all othe
