crowd from the room at the point of
his gun and iwith the remark, "I aim
going to get him now," fired both
barrels into his son in law's head.

Rome, July 12.—Petite Leo has
lived to see; another Sunday, and
with the Sabbath quiet which fell
upon Rome, came also peace and
even progress to the pontiff. B igin
nining this morning with distinct
signs of improvement. he maintained
this throughout the day. Tonight Dr.
Lapponi made the following import
ant statement in ansiw r to the ques
tion if he believed that the improve
ment in th(' pope's condition could
"I believe if the improvement lasts
until next July 21, we may not per

we will secure such a state of general
health in the patient as will allay
During the morning the pontiff par
ticipated in the cv-detonation of mass.
The ceremony was held in the
chapel adjoining the sick chamber,
Mgr. Miarzoni being the celebrant.
The door connecting tihe sick room
with the Chapel was opened so that
his holiness might follow the serv
ie?'. He insisted that Dr. Lappon!
and his valet, Centra, should leave
his side and enter the chapel in or
der to better hear th|© mass.
As many fautistic descriptions are
in circulation -regarding the room
where Pope 1 a'o lies, the representa
tive of the Associated Press has tak
en some pains to secure an exact ac
count from one of the pope's neph
ews. who sees his uncle dally. The
room is large, bright and airy. The
walls aie hung with pale green and
gold silk (iamatk . Entering it, iwith
the sun pouring through anuple win
dows, is like a taste of spring. A
large curtain divides the room, and
it is generally drawn open, shewing
on the right a modest brass lied oov
ered with a red damask coverlet.
Even in his desperate condition. Pope
Leo shows great daintiness with re
gard to his person, performing full
toilet whenever possible, and chang
ing daily his full white batiste night
shirt. At the head of th? bed is a
good picture of the Madonna, besides
a holy wati ir font, while in the mid
dle of the adjacent wall is an im
mense' crucifix, reaching from the
floor to the ceiling, with an ivory fix
ture of Christ. At the foot of ..the
lu I stands a v r.v simple walnut
writing desk, at which the pope had
written the 'best of his Latin poems.
On the other side of the curtain
stands the now famous arm chair,
which is most < nmfontabl?. a small
table, a few shelves with the pope's
preferred books and nothing more.
The chamber gives th idea of ex
treme simplicity, luxuries being rigor
ously banished. Even in his pres
ent condition, Pope Leo has a gr at
objection to having people about him
unless specially called, so that ex
cept in moments when h was much
worse Dr. Lapponi and his valet
-t hem selves could not enter unless he
rang. Centra, who is most r lue taut
to leave the room, asked this morn
ing if the pontiff did not think it bet
ter to have someone always to keep
him company. Pope Leo tranquilly
"I am .n good company," pointing
to the large crucifix.
Now and then the pope suspects
that something is being concealed
from him. so today, after the visit of
the doctors, when a copy of the
medical bulletin was brought in. he
read it attentively and then rang.
When Centra appeared in response
to the bell, he said abruptly:
"Bring me another copy of the bul
letin." emphasizing the word bulle
tin. and evidently thinking the first
one had been doctored for his bene
fit. as had been done before. But
today Centra was able to triumphant
ly bring another identical with the
