A Hopeful Sign
The Patient Changes His Position in Bed by His Own Efforts.
Buffalo, Sept. 9.—As indicating the growing strength
of the president, the following incident of the morning is related by one of
those inside the Milburn house, familiar with the facts:
Mr. McKinley had been lying for some time in one position, but during this morning he asked if he could change this position. The doctors in attendance gave their assent, whereupon the president changed his position by his own effort, without difficulty and without pain.
