The entire le ft side of the bishop is
affected, and for several hours after
the stroke he was unable to speak.
Le-eches applied to his head resulted in
bringing back in a measure his speech,
and in the evening he was able to con

The bishop is fi5 years old. and while
he has he-en in fair health practically
all of his life, his age tends to add to
the fe-ar of his friends for another and
more serious attack.
Yesterday morning the bishop aro.se
as usual, attended morning worship
and spent the remainder of the fore
noon in his study. He complained to
Father F. J. O'Reilly, who eecupiis the
church house, that he was suffering
with a slight attack of neuralgia, but
thought nothing much about it. After
the noon luncheon he went to his study
on the second floor, where he spent

the housekeeper, was startled by the
sound of something heavy falling in
the bishop's room. She ran to the place
and found the prelate lying on the flor.

Calling for assistance, the house
keeper helped the bishop to his bed

He ct once began to revive the strick
en man by applying leechea to his head
and body, and in a comparatively short
time had sufficiently resuscitated the
bishop so he was able to talk.
The entire left side, from shoulder to
foot, is affected, which would mean a
much more serious condition. Dr.
Spalding and a trained nurse are with
the bishop constantly, watching for
any symptoms of a second attack.

Bishop Spalding last Saturday re
turned from Milwaukee, where he had
been to deliver an address before the
Srate Teachers' association. He said
at the time that he was perfectly well
and spoke of having had a pleasant
trip. He has been very busy since his
return and has been confining himself
closely to his work, but there was no
thought among his friends or relatives
of any such impending trouble.
