THE END DRAWS NEAR.
There la Rsally No Hope Left For Mrs.
l)r. Gardner reports Mrs. President Harri
son's condition as unchanged. While the
change in Mrs. Hurrison's condition from
duy to day Is not preemptible to any degree,
the physician and nurses have noticed
steady progress in the disease. There is
never improvement, except of on ephem
eral, intermittent character, and as euch
day passes the bare possibility of a change
for the better grows less, until there Is now
little, If any, hope.
Friday was the thirty-ninth anniversary
of the marriage of the President and Mrs.
