k The Commoner. r h k r . w dence the news was broken to Mrs. McKinley as 'gently as might bo by tbo members of tne Mil burn family. She bore the shock remarkably well and displayed the utmost fortitude. A telegraph office has been established In the Milburn residence and bulletins giving the public the fullest information possible are issued at short intervals. Telegrams have been pouring in by the hundreds. ' While the wounded president was being borne" from the exposftion grounds to the Milburn resi dence between rows of onlookers with bared heads a far different spectacle was being witnessed along the route of -his assailant's journey from the scene of his crime to police headquarters. The trip was made so quickly that the prisoner was safely landed within the wide portals of the police station and the doors closed before any one was aware of his presence. When the officers reached police headquar ters with the prisoner, thousands of men sur rounded the building. A cry of "Lynch...

The Commoner. 10 c, 'Or The Education of Women. . Clark University at Worcester has a hummer .school, before which, on July 25, President G. Stanley Hall made an Interesting discourse about the educa tion of woman. Dr. Hall is in the busi ness of education, and believes In It thoroughly. Ho believes heartily in educating girls, but has his doubts, as .many others have, whether the sort of education which is now lavished on American girls is doing them good, nnd benefiting 'the race and the na tion. H6 Is not sure that it is tho right sort of education for girls; nor must any one blame him for his mis givings, for tho education of women on modern lines is still in the experi mental stage, and many, even of those who work hardest at it, are not sure yet whether they are doing good or harm. Dr. Hall especially concerns him self about the education that girls get in colleges. He has studied statistics in the effort to find out about the health of the college women, and what percentage o...

The Commoner. -?. T L5 K) Vol. i. No. 35. Lincoln, Nebraska, September 20, 1901. $1.00 a Year God's Will, Not Ours, Be Done." These were the last words of President McKinloy as ho bade farewell to the loving companion of his life, to whom his kindness and devotion have been so constant and conspicuous. It was with this beautiful Bpirit of resignation that ho turned from the realities of earth to explore the mysteries of the world beyond. The struggle was over the struggle of a week during which hope and fear alternately gained the mastery. The book of life is closed, and his achievements are a part of history. After he became conscious that the end was drawing near, but before the shadows quite obscured the light, he was heard to murmur some of the words of "Nearer, my God, to Thee." This sacred hymn, which will be found . in full upon another page, contains several iines inspired by Jacob's night at Bethel: "Though, lileo a wanderer, . .

Theodore Roosevelt assumes the duties of tho presidency under conditions calculat ed to call out tho best that is in him, conditions which will make more ardent his natural desire to fulfil the expectations of his countrymen. While he was in perfect accord with Mr. McKin lcy in regard to public questions, his strong in dividuality will doubtless cause some uncertain ty until his administrative policies are devel oped. He enters office more free from political obligations than he could have done had ho re ceived a party nomination after a long coiltcst. Mr. Roosevelt has a high conception of civic virtue and his opponents will probably find more to criticize in his doctrine than in his methods.

The Commoner. 3 The President's Last Hours.. The last hours of President McKinloy supplied to the world the most pathetic instances in all its history. Mr. McKinley was shot by an assassin on the afternoon of Friday, September 6. An opera tion was immediately performed. On Saturday evening it was reported that the distinguished pa tient was in a serious condition, and for a few hours on that day his death was expected. Under the skillful care of physicians and surgeons, who did everything in their power to preserve this val uable life, Mr. McKinley seemed to rapidly im prove, and by Thursday, six days after the presi dent was shot, the American people were happy in the confidence that ho would live, but on tho evening of Thursday the patient took a turn for tho worse and ho gradually sank, although ho held on to life with great determination, showing the vitality that is always noticeable among men and women who have maintained correct habits of life. Mr. McKinley died at 2:15 o'clo...
