     The W. C. T. U. people think that the doctors and nurses did a highly immoral and wicked thing in giving President McKinley spirituous liquors for a stimulant, in the critical stage through which he has just passed.

This is a case where comment is useless, further than to repeat the time honored quotation that has done duty on so many similar occasions that it is in danger of being overworked, namely, “the fools are not all dead yet.”
