Mrs. Ingersoll and Mrs. McKinley as Mourners

     When old Bro. Bob Ingersoll died the Christians expatiated upon the alleged excessive grief of Mrs. Ingersoll, and said it was no more than natural for a woman who had none of the consolations of religion.
     Now, good Methodist Bro. McKinley has gone dead and the newspapers report that his Christian wife is likely to die from grief.
     How is this thing, anyhow?
