Taken to McKinley Vault

     Canton, O., Oct. 1.—About 3,500 pounds of supplies, consisting of overcoats, changes of underwear and tent supplies, have arrived at the camp grounds of company C, the guard of the McKinley vault in West Lawn cemetery [sic]. Captain Biddle is now planning barracks, to be erected at the cemetery near the vault. The building will be 100x20 feet. There are two one-story and a half buildings on the place which are being used to shelter the soldiers and for hospitals.
