Body on a Stretcher

     BUFFALO, N. Y., September 14.—The undertakers occupied less than two hours in their first treatment of the body of the dead President. Upon their arrival they were informed that the body must be left unembalmed until after the autopsy. Accordingly the body was removed from the bed in which the death occurred and placed upon a stretcher and covered with a sheet.
