He, appeared to be on the point of death last night, but the physicians' report tonight indicates that the danger is past for the pres ent. Dr. Amici paid a visit to the sick room shortly before midnight. Al though the pope's temperature has in creased slightly, he found the general condition satisfactory. He adminis tered a heart stimulant and shortly after the pope went to sleep. Throughout the day, the tempera ture was normal, the pulse remained at about 85 and the respiration, 26. This indicated a considerable, amelior ation in the bronchial symptoms, which was further shown by easier breathing and freedom for long periods from coughing. In addition the pope was able to take some nourishment and he, showed much interest in what was happening about him. When Professor Mar chiafava allowed the pontiff's nephew to enter the room, there was an af fecting scene. The frail and aged pontiff and the young and robust priest embraced tenderly, the latter being unable to restrain his emotion at finding the pope, so changed phys ically. Professor Mlarchiafava repeated to night his assurances that if prudence were exercised, the pope would .r\j cover. He declared that his exami nation of the chest showed that the inflammation, which yesterday was marked on the left side, had been checked and was diminishing while the bronchial sounds were less noticeable. After his afternoon sleep, it was observed that the pontiff looked bright and happy. Although he was advised not to talk, he insisted on ex 'plaining how he, had just awakened from a most wonderful dream. Hoe seemed, he said, to have re turned to his beloved Venice. Ap parently he was in his patriarchal gondola on the Grand canal. Every thing was blazing with sunlight, when suddenly above St. Mark's the sky opened and be saw a vision of his dead sister, Rosa, who, descend ing towards him, took his hand, say ing: 'The moment has not yet come for you to join me. Your work is not yet finished." The sisters of the pope and his niece are happy in having the pope's nephew with them as he is most hope ful for the recovery of the pope and keeps up their spirits. (ardinal Kopp, archbishop of Bres lau, is expected to arrive, soon. He has the highest veneration for the pope, and, being deeply affected by the reports of the pontiff's serious condition, desires, even if he cannot see him, to be near him in Rome.

Norman, the older boy, was found in a coal ,in, his torn clothes and ' blood-bespattered club beside him giving mute evide.nce of a brave but futile struggle. Moschner then retraced h;s steps, first covering up Norman's bor.y with rags and boards. Halting at the closet on the first floor, he covered Myrtle's body. Then, entering his bed room, he drew a sheet over Elsie's form as it lay on the bed, and stand ing beside her, sent a bullet into his brain, causing instant death.
