A largo, part of the Servian army is

BULLETIN
i\ MILWAUKEE, Wis., Oct. 14.-—Colonel Roosevelt's special train left for Chicago
at 12:50ia. m. As he left the colonel said that he would spend the night on the car and
,that after remaining a few hours in Chicago he would go on to Indianapolis to fulfill his
speaking engagements tomorow night. He was under the care of Doctor Terrell, his
physician, Dr. Joseph Bloodgood of Johns Hopkins, and Dr. R. T. Sayle. The engineer
received order* to make the run as fast as possible, and it was hoped to reach Chicago
shortly «jjf ter 2:30 a. m.
Before Cblortet Roosevelt would lie down, he insisted on shaving himself, despite the
protests of the surgeons wHo accompanied him. He deliberately shaved, taking pains to
have his face smooth before he sought his stateroom. The train started on a slow run.
It was planned to get to Chicago somewhe re near morning, although the run could be
made in less than two hours in an emergency.
Roosevelt will be taken to the Presbyterian hospital in West Congress street, where
the four Chicago surgeons who were to have gone to Milwaukee will extract the bullet.

COUNT BONI HIRED
BY THE CAROLANS
Society Couple Import Real
French Room, With Noble
man to Set It Up
As the hired man—or shall it be as
the "commissioned artist"?—of Mr. and
Mrs. Francis Carolan, Count Bon! de
Castellane, most talked about of the
husbands of Anna Gould, most conspic
uous of French noblemen in a news
paper way. Is coming to Burlingame.
'"Also there is coming simultaneous
with the count's arrival, a real French
room which the Carolans purchased
entire in a French chateau, which will
be installed among the other rooms in
the American chateau the Carolans are
building in Burlingame.
The room Is to be articulated by
Count Boni. With his coronet jauntily
tilted over his forehead and a T square,
embossed with the noble arms, in his
hand, Count Boni will adjust to the
new Carolan mansion the floor, walls,
celling, sills, lintels, thresholds, fresco-,
decorations, furnishings of a medieval
French room, which one of the early
Louis £>nee occupied.
Real Count Imported
The purchase of an entire room in a
famous French chateau by the Carol
ans Is enough to excite society. But
added to that is the importation with
the room of the French count.
Charmed by Old Splendor
Count Boni de Castellane was the
first husband of Anna Gould. He was
a busy little spendthrift before his
marriage and after that event he
achieved a wider reputation with his
wife's share of the Gould millions than
was ever achieved before by the noble
husband of an American heiress.
He had a talent for spending money
only commensurate with his dead
father in law's talent for acquiring It
So financial troubles arose In the De
Castellane household and there was a
divorce.
The Countess de Castellane married
again, this time a prince, and Count
Bon! has been doing the best he could

FINE NEW BUILDING
PLANS ARE ACCEPTED
San Francisco's New Subtreasury Will Cost
$1,000,000 and Be Ready in Time
For Exposition in 1915
[.Special Dispatch io The Call]
WASHINGTON, Oct. 11. — Revised
plans for the new subtreasury
building at San Francisco, submitted
by Milton Dyer, architect of Cleve
land, were accepted by Chief Architect
Wenderoth of the treasury department
here today. The revised plans call for
an unusually strong building, to meet
all possible conditions and the cost
when completed will be more than
$1,000,000, Including the $375,000 al
ready paid for the site.
"Let me say to the people of San
Francisco," said the supervising arch!-
tecf, today, "that they are going to get
a fine building. It will be far better
than they expected. It will be the
very best that can be provided by the
United States government—a model for
all other cities in the nation, and it
will be ready for the opening of the
Panama-Pacific exposition."
When Wenderoth became supervis
ing architect not long ago, one of
the first things he did was to go over
the plans for the San Francisco sub
treasury. He wm not altogether sat
isfied and asked Dyer to revise them
according to the suggestions made for
their improvement.
The architect came here today-from
Cleveland and submitted the revised
plans and after Wenderoth had studied
them he approved of them. The prep
aration of specifications was at once
begun. This work will take several
weeks and the* treasury department
will advertise for bids. As soon as
the contract is awarded the work will
be begun.
It was arranged today that $200,000
should be set aside out of the $500,000
appropriated for the building to pro
vide for extra big and extra strong
vaults in the new subtreasury. While
this will leave only $300,000 for the ac
PRICE FIVE CENTS.
tual work on the building and the ma
terials, the treasury department ex
pects to be able to induce congress to
provide whatever money is necessary
to complete the work. The setting
aside of $200,000, however, makes the
vaults extra strong and other con
tingencies will be amply provided for.
The $300,000 will be sufficient to take <
care of all the preliminary construction,
enabling the contractors to go ahead
with the steel and concrete frame work,
and by the time that Is finished con
gress probably will have appropriated
another $200,000 to finish the work.
The $200,000 put aside today can then
be used for tfte building of the strong
vaults and other contingencies. With
the $375,000 already spent for the site
it is evident that the entire subtreas
ury will cost more than $1,000,000.
