In violet robes, and accompanied by tho Clerk9 of the Chamber, robed in black, he will approach the corpse and, tapping him three times on tho forehead with a silver mallet, will invoke tho dead Popo by tho namo by which his mother called him in his boyhood, calling him three times: "Gioacchino! Gioacchino! Gioacchino!" If no sign of life bo given after this strango summons tho Apostolic Prothonotaries draw up the Act of Death. The Chamberlain takes tho Fisherman's ring of massive gold, worth a hundred golden crowns, and, having broken it up, divides tho fragments among the six Masters of Ceremonies. Tho secretaries carry all tho other seals to tho Cardinal Camerlengo, who breaks them also in the presence of tho Auditor, tho Treasurer nnd tho apostolic clerks.''
