mistakably how deep an affection he
bears for Pope I.h. Unfortunately,"
said Dr. LapponI, "I cannot give you
any really condoling news. I cannot
share the optimism which is spreading

who approach him is that there has

intellect, which disease has not af

He spoke of it with great interest, re

the feebleness of the pontiff's pulse, is
his low temperature, which is station

to take nourishment at short intervals,
but not in such quantities as his weak
