Mrs. McKinley in Good Health
Guard at the Tomb of the Late President Reduced.
Canton, O., Nov. 22.—(Spl.)—Abner McKinley, brother
of the late President, was here Thursday for the first time since the funeral.
He had been ill at his country home in Somerset, Pa., but seems to have fully
recovered. Aside from transacting some personal business, he spent the day with
Mrs. McKinley, accompanying her on a drive and a visit to the cemetery.
Mrs. McKinley seems to be in her usual health and has borne up bravely under her bereavement. At the suggestion of her physician she has ceased to enter the tomb of her husband, but she continues to make frequent trips to the cemetery and to spend as much time out of doors as the weather will allow. Abner McKinley entered the vault to look upon the casket containing the remains of his late brother. He found it covered with fresh flowers, supplies of which are sent to the cemetery at short intervals.
Mr. McKinley went to Cleveland last evening to visit his sisters, Mrs. Duncan and Miss Helen McKinley.
The guard of regular soldiers at the tomb of President McKinley was today reduced to 48 officers and men of Company C, Fourteenth Regiment.
