B igin nining this morning with distinct signs of improvement. he maintained this throughout the day. Tonight Dr. Lapponi made the following import ant statement in ansiw r to the ques tion if he believed that the improve ment in th(' pope's condition could continue: "I believe if the improvement lasts until next July 21, we may not per haps achieve an absolute cure, but we will secure such a state of general health in the patient as will allay our anxiety." During the morning the pontiff par ticipated in the cv-detonation of mass. The ceremony was held in the chapel adjoining the sick chamber, Mgr. Miarzoni being the celebrant. The door connecting tihe sick room with the Chapel was opened so that his holiness might follow the serv ie?'. He insisted that Dr. Lappon! and his valet, Centra, should leave his side and enter the chapel in or der to better hear th|© mass. As many fautistic descriptions are in circulation -regarding the room where Pope 1 a'o lies, the representa tive of the Associated Press has tak en some pains to secure an exact ac count from one of the pope's neph ews. who sees his uncle dally. The room is large, bright and airy. The walls aie hung with pale green and gold silk (iamatk . Entering it, iwith the sun pouring through anuple win dows, is like a taste of spring. A large curtain divides the room, and it is generally drawn open, shewing on the right a modest brass lied oov ered with a red damask coverlet. Even in his desperate condition. Pope Leo shows great daintiness with re gard to his person, performing full toilet whenever possible, and chang ing daily his full white batiste night shirt. At the head of th? bed is a good picture of the Madonna, besides a holy wati ir font, while in the mid dle of the adjacent wall is an im mense' crucifix, reaching from the floor to the ceiling, with an ivory fix ture of Christ. At the foot of ..the lu I stands a v r.v simple walnut writing desk, at which the pope had written the 'best of his Latin poems. On the other side of the curtain stands the now famous arm chair, which is most < nmfontabl?. a small table, a few shelves with the pope's preferred books and nothing more. The chamber gives th idea of ex treme simplicity, luxuries being rigor ously banished. Even in his pres ent condition, Pope Leo has a gr at objection to having people about him unless specially called, so that ex cept in moments when h was much worse Dr. Lapponi and his valet -t hem selves could not enter unless he rang. Centra, who is most r lue taut to leave the room, asked this morn ing if the pontiff did not think it bet ter to have someone always to keep him company. Pope Leo tranquilly replied : "I am .n good company," pointing to the large crucifix. Now and then the pope suspects that something is being concealed from him. so today, after the visit of the doctors, when a copy of the medical bulletin was brought in. he read it attentively and then rang. When Centra appeared in response to the bell, he said abruptly: "Bring me another copy of the bul letin." emphasizing the word bulle tin. and evidently thinking the first one had been doctored for his bene fit. as had been done before. But today Centra was able to triumphant ly bring another identical with the first bulletin. A BILLINGS VETERAN.
