Lying In State Under
the Roof of Great
Last Rite to Be Ob
day. Rome, July 22. The first great cer
enmnies of Pope Leo's funeral coin
meneecl today when the body lay in
state in the throne room of the Vati
can from. 9:30 a. in. until 1 p. m. All
the diplomats aceredited to the Vati
can, Roman princes, dukes, barons,
and other representatives and their
families remaining faithful to the
papaey, and all high dignitaries of the
church, passed in solemn procession
before, the bier of the late pontiff.
The- papal throne had- been removed
and in its place under flu faiiiu red
t ilken canopy on the stall bed lay the
body of Jxo XIII. Over the bed was
thrown' an old damask covering- on
which the Ixidy reposed robed in
white vestments, with red rochet and
cainauero hood, and on the feet slip
pers embroidered in gold. The thin
hands were clasped over the chest
and held tightly a small ivory crucifix.
At the four corners of the bed stood
lighted candles 30 feet high. At the
foot of a cross on a small table at the
right of the body was a crystal bowl
tilled with holy water, from which
each cardinal whenever he passed the
body sprinkled it and uttered a bene
diction. The silence was only broken
by the solemn chanting of six Fran
ciscan penitentiaries, who. kneeling at
the bench at the foot of the bier, con
tinued an incessant supplication.
There was no carpet on the marble
floor and not a flower could be seen,
according- to the strict, ritual of the
last honors of the church to the pon
tiff. As each lay or clerical dignitary
entered he throne room he- advanced
to the side-of the dead, took, a last
look at the body and then withdrew.
Outside the throne room the long- cor
ridors of the Vatican presented a bril
liant spectacle. At the entrance of
the court St. Damaso. the pontifical
gendarmes were drawn up and ren
dered military honors as each car
riage drove in. The diplomats were in
full uniform, the princes and others
were dressed in deep black.
At 5 this afternoon the doors of the
throne room were closed and the.
Franciscan penitentiaries, assisted by
the attendants of the late ontiff, be
gan dressing- the body in full pontifi
cal robes. At 8 the procession will be
formed and the body taken to St.
For the Klctlon.
In the meanwhile the congregation
of cardinals met in the hall of the
consistory, under the presidency of
Cardinal Oreg-lia. It was determined
to arrange for the accommodation of
the cardinals during their enforced
seclusion at the conclave in exactly
the same manner as when Pope Leo
Rome, July 22. The body of Leo
XIII lay last night in the hall of the
throne room, a few steps from the
room In which! his death took place.

hood, the rochet and the white gown
which were put on Monday, covered
the form, which rested in semi-state,
surrounded by the lighted candles, the
Noble Guard and Franciscan penitenti
aries. This morning the diplomr'ic
body and the high dignitaries and the
Roman aristocracy, entered the hall to
pay their tributes of respect to all that
remains of the pope.
Taken to St. Feter'a Church.
This afternoon the body was ar

Horirit of Celebrated Men.
It is generally known that Napo
leon's white stallion, the horse he rode
at Waterloo, was named Marengo and
that Wellington's charger in the same
battle was Copenhagen. The latter
lived to le twenty-seven years old.
The remains of Marengo are preserved

of any of George Washington's horses?
In nearly nil of the Washington stat

When Carlj-le Pinched Ilia Wife.
A volume by the late Anthony
Froude. the historian, tells this story
of Carlyle and his wife, who lived on
notoriously bad terms, the latter dying
first: "Carlyle found a remembrance in
her diary of the blue marks which in
a fit of passion he had once inflicted ou
her arms. As soon as he could collect
himself he put together a memoir of
her. In which with deliberate courage
he inserted the Incriminating passages
of her diary, the note of tke blue marks
among them, and he added an injunc
tion of his own that, however stern and
tragic that record might be. It was
never to be destroyed."
One Cause of Deafness.
"Deafness is often caused by the
violence with which people blow their
noses," said a New York specialist in
eye and ear diseases. "There is an in
timate relation between the aural and
nasal passages. You sometimes feel
it when you are bathing and get your
nose full of water. Then you will find
more deafness In localities where the
residents are subject to catarrh. In the
straining attendant on blowing the
nose persons stretch the eardrum.
Sometimes they burst the membrane.
I have handled many cases of this sort,
where deafness came suddenly after a
heavy cold in the head."

CROP CONDITIONS IN STATE
The rainfall was deficient iu some
localities of the southern district, but
otherwise well distributed sh;wers oc
curred over the state, affording ample
moisture. The temperature has av
eraged between two and three degrees
below normal. While plant growth
was not so greatly stimulated as dur
ing the previous week, yet rapid ad
vancement has been made. A storm
of destructive iolenee passed over
some of the northern counties on the
evening of the 17th and considerable
damage to corn, oats and fruit trees
ensued. The soil generally in good
condition and considerable stubble
plowing lias been done.
From the corn belt of the state the
reports received are encouraging al
most without exception. The crop is
doing- well, has made rapid growth,
and is mostly laid by. In many li-Id.s.
the plant is tasseling.
In the northern half of the state
the. harvesting of oats will.be general
during the ensiling week. Kstimates
of prospective yield are now more en
couraging, but leporfs indicate a
produce below average. Many fields
are affected with rust.
Wheat threshing is continued. The
yield is very light, but reports now
indicate a better quality than was pre
viously stated, live and barley are in
shock with promise of an aerage
Having has been delayed by rain in
localities and some cuttings in swath
were damaged, but an exceptional
crop with regard to quantity and
quality has been secured. Pastures
are affording good grazing.
Karly apples are being marketed.
The late varieties are very unpromis
ing. Ulackberries are ripe and yield
ing abundantly; currants are plenti
ful in the. northern section. The hon
ey output is large. Potatoes have
been improved by recent rains.
