Several of the congregation pressed about Mr. Roosevelt at the close of the church service and wished him a fine journey and good luck. Mr. Roosevelt and his wife made the long trip back to Sagamore Hill on foot and seemed not to mind the clouds of dust raised by passing ve hicles; rather.

Under the supervision of an expert decorator, brought over from Ger many, the entire suite will be rear ranged. The first room will be a drawing room immediately off which will be Mr. Roosevelt's bedroom. Connecting with this will be a dress ing room, after which will come Ker mit Roosevelt's room, and last of all the bathroom.
