Death Posters Stir a Town


     NEW ALBANY, Ind., Sept. 10.—A great commotion was caused in this place to-day by placards being posted in the streets predicting McKinley’s death. The work was done by a stranger, who passed quickly from place to place.
     Before any one realized it the town was placarded all over with the gruesome announcement. Then the stranger had disappeared.
     The police are searching for him high and low and the people are much excited. If the man should be caught it might go hard with him.
