Chicago, Oct.15. With a leaden slug as big as the end of a man's
finger buried two inches deep in his chest, 'Theodore Roosevelt is 'to
night martaced only, by the danger of bbod poisoning. A veritable
armor belt built of manascript and a gun-metal spectacle case turned
aside the bullet fired by John Schrank, and it spattered and mushroomed
against CoL Roosevelt's 'fourth 'rib, on the right side;" There, unless
symptoms of blood poisoning set

i ' While the colonel Is -comfortable, he is by nojneans out of danger.
The very objects which deflected the bullet have tipped its slightly mush-
roomed point with -infection that will make itself kBown'within twenty
four hours. , ,,

to others, he realizes his plight,-and for the' first
