bearing up bravely under the shock t(
of his sdden death coming as. soon a
after that of their youngest son, a
Lieut. Quentin Roosevelt, who lost his ti
life in a battle with a German airman i
last July. al
The death of Colonel Roosevelt is 7'
believed by the physicians who at-s
tended him, to have been hastened by f
grief over Quentin's death, coupled b
with anxiety over the serious wounds '
suffered by Capt. Archie Roosevelt
while fignting in France. s
He we.s proud of his soldier sons a
and their heroism, but he was a de-a
voted father and he grieved for the
one who gave his life for his coun
try as well as for the- other who was.
wounded. He hid his suffering from
the world, however, in the hope thatt
he might set an example for other
fathers and mothers who had given
their sons to the nation.
To the last Colonel Roosevelt had s
been preaching "Americanism" and e
few realized that his health had been a:
shattered. It was believed that the rug-n
ged constitution which had stood him
in such good stead through so many a
years of "strenuous" life would not t
fail him and that he would regains
his health. His messages of late.how
ever, had been delivered through the
me'lium of editorials or public state-:t
ments instead of as addresses- 't
Even to his neighbors in Oyster 'h

long before his country entered the h:
world conflict. e
