Physicians Sanguine for His
Complete Recovery
Within Week.
Oyster Bay, N. T., Oct. 22. Col. Roose
velt put In to-day at Sagamore Hill ex
actly as his physicians counseled, with
complete rest, keeping himself away
from the political turmoil.
The former President had but one po
litical visitor, George W. Perkins, and he
remained with the wounded third-party
leader but fifteen minutes. Mrs. Roose
velt stood by to see that the national
chairman did not stay too long.' Perkins
rode to Sagamore Hill in his automobile
through the driving rain. As be. left the
Hill he remarked that he had merely
"glossed over" the situation in New York
with the colonel, telling Roosevelt that
me campaisn is progressing sausiaciop
lly. Perkins would not venture an ooln-
ion as to whether Roosevelt will speak in
New York next week. He did not find
the colonel as strong as he expected.
N'one of the former President's nhvsl.
clans appeared at Sagamore Hill until to
night, when Dra. Alexander Lambert. Jo-
aeph A. Blake, and George Brewer, " of
New York, arrived In an automobile. On
their way through the village they picked
up Dr. George W. Fuller, the colonel's
town physician. The four physicians at
9:30 to-night Issued this bulletin as they
left Sagamore Hill:
"Col. Roosevelt has been resting In
bed since his return home and is dls-
tlnctly better. His wound' shows f"ile
healthy processes are going on."
"That's all we can say," declared "Dr.
Lambert. "It means the colonel Is get
ting well rapidly. The rest here is do
ing him immense good.
Mar leave House In Week.
Asked when he thought Col. Roosevelt
could leave the house, the surgeon re
plied, guardedly: "It may be within a
week, perhaps longer. I can tell better
the end of this week."
The former President slept' and read
during as 'dreary a day as might be
Imagined. The rain rattled at his win
dow as he put In his waking hours In
poring Aver books from his library.
'Tin' mighty glad to be home," .said
the. colonel to "Jim, his butler.- "I can

her neck. In fact, when the girl was
found unconscious on the floor her
clothes and hair were not even disar
ranged. Entrance to the office Is gained
through a narrow hall, which opens on
the street On the floor of this hall

chain. The chain was broken. Papers

found in the hall. A search of the shop
