GREAT flGHT AQAIIMST DEATH AGED PONTIFF SPENDS A QUIET AND ALMOST PAINLESS DAY. OPERATION AGAIN PERfOHiV.Li) CAN HARDLY BE SAID THAT IT IMPROVED HIS CHANCES OF RECOVERY. WAKES IP ANi) ASKS fOR EO00 ANALYSIS OF SERUM SHOWS THAT DISEASE IS SIMPLY PLEURISY. Rome, July 12, 6:40 a. m. The usual gathering of watchers, mostly journalists, witnessed from the piazza of St. Peter's, the opening of the win J dows of the papal apartment this morning by the pope's faithful valet, Centra. -From what has transpired from the sick room it appears that no significant change has taken place in W the condition of the patient up .to the present hour. Dr. Lapponi succeeded in having Pope Leo take a sufficient quantity of nourishment during the night. Another Operation Performed. Rome, July 12, 4:50 a. Another operation, performed yesterday, has 'brought further relief to Pope Leo, and by it the possibility of his life be ing prolonged was increased, but it can hardly be said that the operation improved his chances of recovery. News just received from the Vatican says the pope is now lying in a rest less condition after having had a good sleep during the early hours of the morning. __L As an imminent result of yester-v day's operation the pope spent a quiet and almost painless day, with, for his age, a normal temperature, and he only more strikingly exhibited his I strength of constitution and intellect. At the examination last evening the I doctors could not perceive any regath ering of serum in the pleural cavity, but it was feared that presence of serum would be detected to-day, thus rendering necessary perhaps another operation in a few days. Drops Peacefully to Sleep. Shortly before midnight the-condi tion of the pontiff was reported to have undergone no change, and it was added that he had just dropped peace fully into sleep. At that hour all within the palace was quiet, the pontiff's apartment alone showing signs of life. The pope slept until nearly 2 o'clock this morning, wSen he woke up, seemingly more refreshed, and asked for food. The latter part of the night was not so good owing to the restlessness and uneasiness of-the patient. Dr. Lap poni has been going almost every fif teen minutes to look at the pontiff, who did noi notice the presence of the doctor, being in a drowsy state. Dr. Lapponi administered a dose of chloral and gave the patient at the same time an injection of camphor caffeine. A general feeling of tranquility marked the day in Rome yesterday. The self-confidence of the patient per meates the people, especially the simpler folk, who go about their day's work, postponing signs of Sorrow and Mourning until from the sickbed itself they hear that the unusual struggle is nearing its end. There is foretold, almost apathetically, a repetition during the next few days of that exceptional med ical history of recoveries and relapses which have so astonished the world this week. That no doctor will lend the weight of bis opinion to uphold this popular impression in no way af fects the prevailing idea of the Ro mans. Nothing is more wonderful than the pope himself, they say, hence miracles are not out of the ques tion. Dr. Rossoni, assisted by the other doctors, analyzed the serum extracted yesterday morning. The doctors ex plained that the purpose of the analy sis was to determine whether the case originated from tuberculosis process or a tumor in the throax. The analy sis showed that the disease was mere ly due to plurisy. APPEAL GOES TO ENGLAND. Uncle Sam Reaches Out After Gaynor and Greene. Quebec.

THE DAILY GIVES AWAY HIS CASH. Smith's Generosity Is Grand but Quite Unintentional. Merrill^vVis., July 12.Some young sters went into_W. G. Smith's place of usiness a day or two ago TO ask for mpty cigar boxes. Smith is an oblig ing man. He likes to accommodate little boys, so he hustled around and fitted out the lot with boxes. Little Eddy.Cotey thought that his boxes were slightly heavier than usual, bvt he said nothing and took them homo. Then he opened them, and in one of them was a pile of greenbacks. Little Eddy was delighted at his gift, but Mrs. Cotey viewed the matter with better judgment and sent the money back. It counted up to just $305. was Smith's urn to be surprised when the money came in. He had been in the habit of stowing his bills in a cigar box and putting it in the safe. In some way ..acre had been a shitting of boxes and the money box had been relegated to the pile of cast away stuff. AMES IN STATE PRISON. Will Serve His Sentence and Live It Down.

GREATER 111 A FOR THREE YEAP.S JAPAN ADOPTS A POLICY INDE- PENDENT OF HER BRITISH ALLIANCE. MENACE TO CHINESE THRONE EFFORTS TO EXTERMINATE THE ANTI-DYNASTIC SOCIE- TIES. Pekin, July 12.Advices from New Chwaug regarding the recent cleavage in the relations between Russia and Japan have caused a revival of the war talk, greater than at any time for three years. The recent sale of the British company to Russia has been taken to indicate a loss of confidence by the foreign residents in the ability of the powers to resist Russia's ab sorption of the port industries. Since the departure of the Russian minister, M. Lessar, for the Port Arthur con ference it has been said the Chinese foreign office intended to have a rep resentative at that meeting and was only deterred from accepting .he invi tation by the fear of alarming the oth er powers. Japan's demand regarding the deficiency in the Indemnity Payment is taken as an indication that she is adopting a policy independent of her British alliance. The Chinese for eign office is exerting its utmost to ex terminate the anti-dynastic societies in the Yiang-tse provinces. Five lead ers of the movement are now on trial for sedition in the foreign concession at Shanghai. The government be lieves that this propaganda is a grave menace to the throne. Three native Christians have been murdered at Ping li Hysen, in the Shan-si province. The Catholic priests have been escorted to Cheng Kou under military protection. The foreign office declares that the mur ders are not anti-Christian, but have their motive in robbery. SOLIDIFY BRITISH EMPIRE. Another Movement Receives a "Strong Impetus. London, July 12.
