She Saw Czolgosz

     BUFFALO, N. Y., September 18.—Mrs. Earl Spencer, of Friendship, Allegany county [sic], New York, saw Czolgosz just outside the building in which he shot the President. She recognized in his picture the man that tried to crowd past her, and was pushed back by a big policeman. He had nothing in his hands at that time. It is her son Raymond that the President lifted and called a fine little fellow, about a minute before he was shot. After pas[s]ing the little fellow said: “Mamma, he looks good enough to kiss.”
