    "'What's the matter, mother?' she asked. 'Oh, they have assassinated our dear President,' the mother answered. Then mother and daughter started down the street towards the courthouse. Hundreds of others were streaming in the same direction. At the public square a great crowd had gathered and men were making speeches.
