Indeed, hopes of his recovery reached

be given than in the words of Dr. Lap

Followed by Attack.
This promising outlook, however, was
followed by the startling announcement
that the pope 'had been attacked with diar
rhoea, apparently caused by the large
quantity of food he had taken, and that
tonsulting physicians had been sent for.
The patient, when he began the day,
showed only more his iron mountaineer

assistance, walking across the room to his
arm-chair and having his toilet fully pre
pared, even to the detail of being shaved.
Throughout this procedure the pope
showed no signs of being exhausted. In
deed, he Jokingly alluded to the amount
of nourishment which was being imposed
on him and said:
"I ought to grow fat, as I have never
had in all my life as much as I get now."

This buoyancy of spirit was considered
to be one of the principal co-efficients in

some of the large questions of church

At 3 o'clock in the afternoon, although
no worse, the pope was not reported to be
any better, and then came news of the
pontiff's sudden relapse and of the sending

The moon was shining brightly, but be
cause of the dense foliage objects even at
a short distance were indistinct.
The young man did not come up the
regular path usually used. He took a short
cut and approached from the rear. The
secret service men did not see him until
he was almost on the steps.
"What do you want ?" was demanded.
He was slow to answer and was or
dered to throw up his hands. The men
covered him until they got close enough
to recognize the president's son.
They thought it was a good joke; but
the fact that he got so close before he was
picked up by the secret service men has
caused a change by the officers guarding
One Man on Guard.
At times during the daylight and early
evening only one secret service man has
been on duty.
After midnight two men went on and
remained until after daylight until they
were relieved by the single man who took
up the day watch.
Henceforth two men will he on guard

It was shlwo, by reftrence to a transcript
