ind overcome with grief, was In such a
nervous state that her daughter and
ion prevailed upon her not to under
take the trying ordeal of attending the
iervices at the White House. At 8:30
b'clock, therefore, the doors were all
closed and the stricken family was left
alone with their dead. For almost thir
ty minutes they remained, taking their
last leave. Then the bugle commands
floated across the square as the horses
f the yellow-tasseled cavalry, the lum
bering caissons of the red artillery and
the blue-coated foot soldiers, the mili
tary escort, were drawn up into lines
along Pennsylvania avenue.
At 9 o'clock the doors to the room
where the remains lay were opened,
nd the family retired to the rear
tpartments. Mrs. Gresham, in an agony
tf grief, was almost carried from the

rived in their carriages, followed by
Secretary Smith on foot. The casket

nembers of his cabinet were given no
opportunity to view the remains.
At exactly S':30 o'clock five red-coated
trumpeters marched up Lafayette place

eeconds later the hearse, drawn by two
oal black horses, drew up at the door.
The president, followed by members of

ictlng as honorary pallbearers, descend
ed the steps and stood with uncovered
heads while the eight artillerj-men car

tread between them. The casket was
shrouded completely In the folds of the
American flag. The stars and stripes
could hardly be discerned for the flow
ers banked upon the casket. The artil

the Immediate kinsfolk and relatives of
the dead man. for the president and
Mrs. Cleveland and for the members of
the cabinet and their wives. Within
this solemn, black-robed circle, stood
the standards for the catafalque, rest
ing on a large blac' eal rug. By 10:45
the vast east roon. was nearly filled.
The seating arrangements were
perfect. The remainder of the diplo
matic corps came along very rapidly.
Sir Julian Pauncefote, the British am
bassador, with his wife and daughter,
receded Ambassador Patenotre, who
was accompanied by his wife. Then
followed the Italian ambassador and
Baron von Kettler, who Is acting as the
German ambassador, with full suites.
All of the members of the diplomatic
body were apparently in attendance,
with the exception of Minister Wecker

for himself, but for his country"). The

love and esteem in which Mr. Rusk was
held by all who knew him.

By Hood's Sarsaparilla are wonderful,
but the explanation is simple. Hood's
vitalizes and enriches
the blood, and dis
ease cannot resist its
powers. Read this :
My girl had hip dis
ease when five years
old. She was con
fined to her bed and
for six or seven weeks
the doctor applied weights to the af
fected limb. When she got, up she
was unable to walk, had lost all her
strength and day by day she became
thinner. I read of a cure of a similar
case by Hood's Sarsaparilla, and decided
to give it to Lillian. "When 6he had
taken one bottle it had effected so much
good that I kept on giving it to her
until she had taken three bottles. Her
appetite was then excellent and she
was well and strong. She has not used
crutches for eight months and walks to
school every day. I cannot say too
much for .
It is a splendid medicine and I would
recommend it to any one." Mrs. G. A.
