At the M’Kinley Home


It Can Only Be Assuaged by Exercise and Mental Occupation—Dr. Rixey’s
Statement Concerning His Patient.

     CANTON, O., September 21.—Dr. Rixey said to-day: [“]Mrs. McKinley’s grief is intense. She is doing as well as could be expected. However, too much encouragement should not be taken at this early day regarding her.”
     To all outward appearances, the McKinley home to-day was but one of the comfortable homes of North Market street [sic], Canton’s most desirable residence section. No guard surrounded the lawn, and no doorkeeper stood at the door.
     Within this home is a grief-stricken, heart-broken woman, well nigh prostrated. She is showing remarkable fortitude and her friends are encouraged to hope, but are still apprehensive. There has been no material change in her condition during the past twenty-four hours.
     She was one of the first at the house to arise to-day. She said she had enjoyed a good sleep, and that she felt better than at any time since the fateful night in Buffalo, when her husband was shot. To Dr. Rixey she expressed a wish to take another drive to-day. Dr. Rixey says his patient needs exercise and good, healthful mental occupation—not medicine.
