Short History of His Life.
Rome, July 7.-The tex4 of the bul
leti-n iseued by physicians th- morn
ing, on the condItion of the pope's
health is as followa:
"Althougth his holiness dpassed the
night almost without sleep, he is not
so uneasy as be was yesterday. The
oipe has been benellted by the in
jection of digitalis and camphor, and
the condition of his chest is normal.
There Is a slight cough with some ca
tarrhal omission. Buffic*nt nourish
mont has been .taken. The pulse is
still weak, but not intermittent and the
temperature is below normal. The con
dition of the august patient, therefone,
cannot be described as better, but it
certainly is -no worse."
'The amelioration in the pope's con

that it was feared that possibly it was
only the last flickering of the vital
During this brighter interval, the
Pope resumed his habits of command
and insisted on givi-ng orders for the
preparation of the brief appointing
Monsignor Volponi, actually secretary
of lotters to princes, ae secretary to
the Consistorial congregation, a post
vacant owing to the promotion of Mon
signor Nocella, to the Cardinate. The
of such an appointment,
especia y at the present moment, is
manifes when it is considered that at
the pope's death the secretary of state
ceases to exercise his functions, which
are assumed immediately by the see
retary of the Consistorial congregation.
"God's will be done. Who would have
holieved It, when only ten days ago I
was presiding over a public consist
ory?" murmured feebly Pope Leo as
he felt himself late last evening sink

three hours, until exe-ruciating pains

Dr. Lapponi, atssistedi by Pope Leo's
valet, Pio Contra, and the physician's
second, Do Castro, lifted the frail form
and changing the position, succeeded
in giving the patient some relief.
Though hovering on the brink of
death, the life of the .pontiff is still
prolonged by moans of strong stimu
lants and concentrated nourishment,
and while ho is stIl alive his wonder
f-ul v-!tality may again resist and con
quer the attack of his illness.
Late last eveni-ng, after the excite

service and partly by a dose of chloral,
