Old Glory to Again Float at Full Mast


Thirty Days’ Period of Mourning for President McKinley Expires with To-Day

     WASHINGTON, Oct. 12.—The thirty days’ period of mourning prescribed by President Roosevelt in respect to the memory of the late President McKinley will expire to-morrow, and the flags on all the Government buildings, which have been half-masted since the 14th of September, will be displayed again at full-mast, beginning Monday morning.
     With the exception of the State Department the use of black-bordered mourning paper in official correspondence will be discontinued in all the executive departments after to-day. By the special order issued by the Secretary of State the diplomatic and consular officers of the United States, as well as the officers of the State Department, will continue the usual symbols of public mourning for thirty days longer.
