Siftings [excerpt]

     All these royal condolences mean one thing; that the temporary President of the United States stands on a par with the hereditary sovereigns of the world.


     The life of the late President McKinley is to be commemorated in a special series of postage stamps. The matter is under consideration at the Post Office Department at Washington.
