ROME, July 25.?Tho body of Pope
Leo was interred in St. Peter's to-night,
Tho stroke of the hammer which resound?
ed through tho Immense dome of the
cathedral announced to the earnest gath?
ering in the nave that Leo XIU. had been
laid to rest. At sundown the most Im?
portant and most solemn of all the obse-'
quls took place. Tho front doors of the
basilica were closed, and the vast church,
except for a row of lights at the shrine'
of St. .peter, the candles about the bier
and those persons who had quietly and
with the utmost reverence gathered
there, appeared deserted.
About 1,000 persons had received Invi?
tations to attond the ceremonies. The
cnrdlnals, who met earlier In tho Vatican,
entered, the chapol choir waiting there for
the arrival of the procession, Cardinal
Oreglla, tho camerlengo, holding the keys
of command. ;
Cardinal Rampolla as arch priest of tho
Basilica was waiting outside the gates,
in violet robes, surrounded by the chap
tor of the__cathedral, which was. Jed by
Monslgnor Ceppetelll, who conducted the
service. Drs. Lapponl and Mazzonl direct?
ed tho work, of tho removal of the bier,
which was executed by eight sodlarl, or
Pope's carriers, attired in their brilliant
red brocade costumes. They at first tried
to raiso tho bier, but, finding it too heavy,
they rlowly slid it onto a car with noise?
Then to the strains of the "Miserere,"
which wailed through the lofty church,
and preceded by a gllttei-lng cross held"
aloft, tho procession, carrying candles
and torches, slowly loft tho chapel and
went up tho church, paslng tho bronze
statuo and beyond the shrino ??.St. Poter.
Those gathered fell to their knees.
After slovi progress around the church
tho sad cortege arrived at the chapel
choir, tho bier being ao carried that the
dead Popo entered head first according
to the ceremonial, the chapel from semi
obscurity flashing Into the brilliancy of
the suddenly turned on electrlo light.
Hore all those who had received invita?
tions were stopped, remaining in the
main part of the Basilica behind a double
line of the Swiss guards, In their peculiar,
yellow, red and black uniforms, and arm?
ed with halbrods and serpentine swords.
Wltnln the chapol was Count Camlllo

In tho chapol the music changed to

with telling effect. From the outside the)
flvo bells of St. Peter's rang their ao-<

mingling harmoniously with tho music o_
Tho seono In the chapel was most re-i
markably effective. The bier bearing tho
body was raised by Cardinal Oreglla. It?
was placod In the center, bucked by am
altar, with a beautiful Image of the Mu?
donna, before which wero burning fouo
Immense candles in silver staffs.
Around tho two sides of tho chapel In)
tho choir seats were thlrty-slx( cardinals,
all wearing violet robes except' Cardinals
Gotti arid Pierottt, who wore tho white
mantles of their ordert1; Cardinal Mar

Tho body was sprinkled with holy wnter,
absolution was given, and the foot of
Leo XIII, was kissed for the last tima
by Major Homo C'aglnno, Master of tho
Chamber Blsletl and Count Camlllo Peect.
Tho Major Domo then covered tho ven
erabla foatures urid hands with a white
silk veil, bordered with gold. Over this
the Prefect of Ceremonies spread a larger
silk veil, which covered the whole person.
Fire was lighted lu a brasier and blown
by bellows, tho sparks rising almost to
the celling, while Monslgnor Bartollnl
rend for twenty minutes the oratlo bre

out tha burial record, a service which ha
performed upon the occasion of tho death?

The Monslgnors of the Biislllca, aided
