They have shown no elation over his election; they have said nothing foolish, but have remained in the background and kept their heads in a remarkable manner, rope Pius X comes from the same class as President Loubet of France and Abraham Lincoln, the plain people." as Mr. Lincoln used to call them. He has never been ashamed of his origin, nor has he become dizzy because of the eminence to which he has be?n ele vated, and there is admirable dignity in the refusal of his brothers and sisters to come to Home until they v.-jre asked. Thousands from their neighborhood have already been here to see "Don Giuseppe," as they ai fectionately call him, have received his blessing, have heard his voice and have returned to their homes in Venice to tell the wonderful story, but the Sarto family have not yet appeared in public. ??opt **!us is one of eight children, three sons and live daughters.

After lie was elected pope he sent for them to join him at Rome. They bought third-class tickets as usual when they made their little Journeys, and were quite over come when the officials of the railway at tached a saloon car to the train for their exclusive use. They had never ridden in one before. The pope intended that they should occupy a villa in the Vatican park. rV,'. .V Was e/ected about twenty years ago f 1 ,Ule comfort of I^o XIII. who woe ac customed to occupy it during the summer months, when the wails of the Vatican be came saturated with the summer heat, but tlio sisters did not like the arrangement, the villa was too much like a gilded prison: they would be compelled to observe foimahiies to which they were unaccus tomed; they could not enter or leave tha Vatican park without attracting a great oeal of attention: they would be shut away trotn ail the world, and in their solitude could make no friends and would have no body to gossip with. .

So he had h<s secretary secure them a comfortable but mcc.est flat in the third story of a new apartment house on the Corso Victor Em manuel, one of the busiest streets of n?w Rome where they can live as quietly "as they like, can go and come without at tracting observation and can see what is going on around them. This street leads to the Tiber and the old lV.fnJ k? A"Selo, which was originally . w u1'. ?e Emperor Hadrian for his tomb, but has been a fortress for sixteen centuries and Is one of the first sights of the city. It Is only four blocks from the Ktican with which it was formerly con nected by an underground passage Thus the sisters are within ten minutes1 Papal palace, but they find it very difficult to see their brother as often as they would like, and complain of the formalities by which he is surrounded He has done away with much ceremony and the restrictions that surrounded his prede cessor, but the pope of Rome is a very busy man, and has little time to spare for visit li?T with his family. Ills sisters and nieces have been in the habit of going to his apart ments about twice a week in the early even ing hours when his receptions are over and have dined with him several times. Sensible and Practical. Nobody knows what they think of all the grandeur arid glory by which he Is sur rounded, and the magnificence and magni tude of the palace in which he lives. They are sensible enough to keep their thoughts to themselves, and no newspaper reporter has ever been able to coax them or entrap them In an interview. Remarks that they have made to friends are frequently quoted Many of their former neighbors liave been here. Almost every Catholic in Venice has come to Rome to see how "Don Giuseppe" .ooks on the pontifical throne, and the Misses Sarto have naturally received a great deal of attention, and their rooms have been besieged by friends, to whom they have talked freely. Portions of their conversation have been repeated at home and printed In the Venetian papers, but thus far they have said nothing foolish and have spoken like the sensible, practical wo men that they are. A question agitating the mind of many silly people concerns their reception by Ro man society, which is not yet back from its summer vacation. Rome is divided Into two great sets, between which an impass able gulf Is fixed. One set, which adheres to the civil authority and worships at the palace of the king, is called the "whites;" the other set, or "blacks," as they are call ed, regard the king and the royal court as wicked intruders, and will not recognize them In any way. They adhere to all the old precedents and traditions, and regard the pope as their temporal as well as spirits ual sovereign. Many of them are so rigid In their notions that they will not even vote at a civil elec tion. for that would be a recognition of the authority of the king. To this class belong most of the famous old Roman families those who trace their ancestry back beyond the middle ages and occupy the cold, gloomy and musty smelling old palaces along the banks of the Tiber and In the ancient parts of the city. They are not very lively or cheerful companions, and their lives and habits are restricted by their piety their poverty and their pride. They are exceed ingly formal and ceremonious, and the red handed peasant women who have come down from Venice have no place or part with them, and would be miserable in their company. In order that his sisters may be well loooked after the pope has provided them a cajiable chaperone in the person of an ex perienced 1 toman woman of the middle class who Is wise In the ways of the world and can look out for their happiness and protect them from the adventurers who swarm in Rome as In the other European capitals His holiness has purchased two new car riages for them, a brougham and a landau so that they need not be riding in t hi street cars and expose themselves to the no'orlitv that their relationship will attract Th? purchase of these carriages caused cnniS erable excitement and furnished founda for a widely published story that the pope himself was going to violate the policy of his predecessors and leave the Vatican The papal coat of arms was painted upon Christmas at the Sookfovers A good book is a comforting kind of Christmas present; and a good book which you can ex change for another good book as often as you like keeps the pleasure of the gift revolving from week to week.

The Eoman lady who has taken the pope's sisters In charge has already persuaded them to make some modifications in their costumes which will render them less con spicuous. and before many weeks I suppose they will be dressing and looking like the ordinary Romans of the middle class.
