Chosen to Succeed Pins IX. Feb

Pope March 3, 1878.
Rome, July 20, 4:20 p. m. The pope
died shortly after four o'clock this
afternoon. His last moments were
comparatively peaceful and painless,
and were preceded by a period of in
sensibility. Around the bedside at the
final moment were the cardinals, the
relatives and the members of the pa
pal court. Before lapsing into uncon
sciousness the dying pontiff feebly
moved has lips, his last articulate
words being those used in bestowing
Gradually the shadow of death
spread over the pontiff, his extremi

rapidly throughout Rome and caused
a most profound sensation. The whole
city is in mourning.

The life of the venerable head of
the Catholic church has been an
eventful and most exemplary one.
POPE LEO XIII. FROM A
He was born March 2, 1810; or
dained priest in 1837; created car
dinal in 1853; chosen, to succeed Pius
IX. February 20, 1878; crowned pope
March 3, 1878.
Shortly before noon the pope was
eized with a sinking spell. For a
few moments it was believed that" a
collapse was about to occur. So near
death was the pontiff that Cardinal
Vannutelli began at his bedside to re
cite the prayers for the dying and ad
ministered absolution in articulo mor
tis. The pope however, once again
demonstrated his marvelous vitality
by rallying from the apparently fa
tal seizure but only to relapse imme
diately into a state of semi-consciousness.
Although the pontiff continued in a
general condition of lethargy, he had
fleeting spells when his reason reas
serted itself. During one of these
periods he murmered benedictions
and solemnly confided the interests
of the church to Cardinal Oreglia,
dean of the sacred college.
At noon, a report of the pontiff's
death gained, wide circulation, bt it
was soon authoritively contradicted.
At 2 p. m. the patient was still
alive, but his condition was extremely
The pope had another brief lucid
interval about three o'clock and mut

THE LAST HOCKS OF LEO.
They Were a Succession of Lucid In
tervals and Collapses.
Rome,July 20. Although this morn
ing's bulletin gave the impression
that the pope's condition was some
what ameliorated, in reality the doc
tors did not think so. They consid
ered that the lowering of the pulse
and the diminution of the respiration
were due to great prostration of the
whole organism, which was steadily
augmenting, notwithstanding the
fact that he at times took a little
nourishment. The pope continued
now and them to mutter phrases, al
though unconscious, his mind evi
dently returning to the events w-hich
impressed him most before his ill
ness began. At one moment he was
feeling about with his hands and mov
ing his head from side to side, trying
to lift himself, while he murmured:
"What crowds! what devotion. My
dear people." Then falling back in
eTtly sighing: "The weight of these
robes, can I hold out until the end?"
This was followed by scraps of
Latin verses and prayers, and then
would come an interval of silence,
broken by another moment of energy,
in which the pope cried: "The con
sistory is over. They can reproach
me no longer. How many faces of
all kinds. The church is triumphing,"
and so on over and over again.
A Avonderful thing about Pope Leo
was that every time his mind became
clear he seemed to "grasp the fact
that It might be the last, and he made
the highest use of it. When, during
the alarming crisis about noon," he
was lying on his bed, perfectly mo
tionless, while around him knelt th
cardinals and other members of th
papal court, praying and not know
ing whether the pope wa not already
dead, without any preliminary rest
lessness, the pontiff opened his eyes,
which fell on Cardinal Oreglia, who
was at his side, and said solemnly:
"To jour eminence, who will so soon
seize the reins of supreme power, I
confide the churches in these difficti.1t
Then Mgr. Bisleti, the master of the
chamber, asked -for the pope's ben
diction for the court, which the pope
granted, adding: "Be this my last
Then the pontiff gave his hand to
kiss to the cardinals present, who
were Oreglia, Rampolla, Vannutelli,
Dolla Volpe and Vives Y Tuto.
Dr. Lapponi, profiting by the ani
mation, administered restoratives,
whereupon the patient sank back as
suddenly as he had revived.
The words the pope addressed to
Cardinal Oreglia, which proved to be
his last utterance, are much com
mented upon, and it is wondered
whether the intention "of the pope
was to indicate Cardinal Oreglia as
his successor. They will certainly
have considerable weight in the deci
sion of the cardinals who will take
part in the conclave.

Difficulty at Somerville.
Mike Lintz was shot by Espie
Narremore at Somerville last week,
the ball striking him in the side and
inflicting a dangerous though not
necessarily fatal wound. Lintz and
Narremore had a fight about one
3'car ago, and bad feeling had exist
ed between them ever since. They
had some few words in front of Nar
remore's store, when he pulled his
pistol and commenced shooting.
Four shots were fired, only one tak
ing effect. Xarremore was. arrested
and, waiving preliminary examina
tion, was placed under $1,000 bond.
Phenomenal Potato Crop.
A phenomenal potato crop was
that raised by Mr. Shaw of Union
City in his garden. There were so
many of the tubers in the ground
that Mr. Shaw thought he would
have to rent his neighbor's garden
in order to have room to pile his po
tatoes, lie began making a calcula
tion and found out that if he had
had an acre of potatoes in and the
acre had averaged as did his garden,
he would have raised G50 bushels
to the acre. ' And there is no doubt
but this feat can be accomplished in
