WM. MCKINLEY

The Citizen, Soldier and Statesman.

The Illustrious Life

——of the——

MARTYRED PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

Vividly Sketched by a Distinguished Journalist and Lifelong Friend.

     This work of high literary value sets forth the years of labor and of love in a graphic and attractive manner, and is a tribute of the highest worth to a man brave in every duty and danger—beloved and revered in every home.
     No patriot can afford to miss the inspiration of the stirring story of such a beautiful life, as useful and matchless as that of Abraham Lincoln, the emancipator.

A SPLENDID CONTRIBUTION TO AMERICAN HISTORY.

     It describes in a beautiful way his ideal home life, his unfailing love and devotion for his invalid wife, which so endeared him to the people. It recites fully his eventful career from humble birth to his active life in the White House, his assassination at Buffalo, and his tragic struggle with death and pathetic parting with his noble wife at the Milburn mansion. It contains incidents and anecdotes of his illustrious life heretofore unpublished. This book also gives an account of the atrocious heresy of anarchy, which is responsible for the dastardly deed that laid low one of the greatest figures in our history, our beloved President McKinley.
     The history of the life of this great emancipator of the oppressed people of monarchical traditions and tyrannical rule of our new island possessions, of the noble-souled advance agent of prosperity, of the friend of American labor and industry, whose last speech at Buffalo will be remembered as long as Lincoln’s immortal speech at Gettysburg, should adorn the library of every home where civic virtues, bravery, wise statesmanship, and unselfish devotion to duty are appreciated.
