C., Sept. 9.—“President McKinley’s abstinence from stimulants,” said a member of the official household Sunday, “will undoubtedly provean [sic] important factor in improving his chances for recovery. In all my experience with public men and all public entertainments it has never been my lot to see a more abstemious man[.] This triat [sic] in his character was brought out prominently in the trips he made South after the Spanish war, and caused no end of comment.
     “Another thing must be taken into consideration, and that is he has spent a quiet, restful summer at Canton, and consequently has not been harassed of [sic] worn out by the importunities of spoilsmen or the cares of official business.”
