Said to be Seriously III His Record a Noble One. Special attention attaches to tlie election of Cardinal Sarto aa Pope by reason of the predic tion of Leo tha- he would be his succes-or There must have been some ilis. inyui.lied quality in the man which led the wise and discerning Leo to single him out from the group of younger and lesser princes of the church as the probable choice of the conclave. Although not prominent in the court of the Vatican and a car dinal for only ten years, Cardi nal Sarto has been marked as a man of exceptional vigor, talent and accompliMhtnents. He la said to possess the unusual com bination of grcal learning and great executive ability. He has eloquence and persocal attrac tivne-s. It was probably the possession of these qualities, combined with the fact that he had not been prominent in the curia, that led to his election. pope pu s x gives mlessim; TO ROMANS. Probably the most dramatic feature connected with the assumption of the papal power by Pius X was the ceremonial of blessing the people of Home. Standing forward in the win dow of the Vatican, the othe-s having fallen back, he deliber. ately controlled himself and looked across the great basilica. Grossing himself, Sarto raised his hand and in a voice palpably tremulous, he said: "Auditorium nostrum i n nomine Domini." To this came in reply from thousands of voices the cry: "Qui fecit coelum et terram?" In a thrilling vo:ce the pope responded: "Sit Nomen Domini Benedic turn!" Then raising himself to his full height and leaning forward as much as possible, he intoned: "Benedicat vos omnipotens deus," etc., which 'called forth such applause that several min utes elapsed before the pontiff could retire. He then drew back and the procession reform ing, turned to the ducal hall. At the moment of leaving the win dow, he turned to Monsignor Bisleti, who happened to be be side him, and said: "I shall never again feel just the same emotion." Following is the translation of the Latin sentences used above in the order in which they occur: "Hear us in the name of the Master." "Who made heaven and earth? "May the name of the Master be blessed!" "May the omnipotent God bless you," etc. NEW POPE TO AMERICA. "I love the Americans, who are the blooming youth of Ca tholicism.
