death wis no less wonderful than
his lif-. His splendid battle against
disdhso was watched over with h)M
'pAthetic admiration and ended only
f r a series of tremendous of
"forts to conquer the weakness of
bis aged .frame by tho marvellous
'will power of his mind. Tb# pleuro
pneumonia, with which his Holliness
was suffering, was scarcely as re
sponsible for his death as that inov
itable decay of tissue which ensues
upon 98 years of life. The tested
steel which had bent so often before
human ills was bound to break at
THE BODY OF THE POPE.
Monday night the emaciated and
lifeless form which held so brave a
spirit lay on the bed in the Vatican
beside which ahuost all the world
has prayed. The damask coverlet
rested lightly over the body, the Car
dinal's scarlet cape was about the
shoulders, while on his head had
6een placed the F apal hood of vel
)et, bordered with ermine. A white
bilk handkerchief was bound about
4.is chin, and in the hands which
9A,have blessed so many thousands had
een placed a crucifix. So Pope
Leo remained until Tuesday, watched
by uniformed officers of the Noble
Guard and rough clad Franciscan
pe4itentiaries, who kept a ceaseless
RIIAND IN DEATH AS IN LIFE.
The Pope's final moments were
marke 1 by that same serenity and
.4devotion as when he was conscious;
tithat calm intelligence which is asso
ciated with his twenty-five years'
jP/2yontificate. His was no easy death.
rn hour before he died, turnin-, to
Dr. Lapponi atid his devoted valet,

hi-i parting words were not of the
physical anguish that be sUf1ered,
upwere whispered benesdict ions up
~n the Cardinals andl his ntephewe,
who knelt at the bedside, and the
tlook of his almost sightless eyes

THE POPE's LAHF MOMENTs.
A round the Popo's bedside at the
tinal moment were the Cardinals,
relatives and the members of the
Papal Court. Before lapsing into
unconsciousness the dying Pontiff
feebly moved his lips, his last arti
culate words being those used in be
stowing a benediction.
Gradually the shawdow of death
upread over the Pontiff, his extremi
ties became cold, his features as
sumed the fixed rigidity of death,
and Dr. Lapponi noted his last flut
tering heart beats, which gradually
became slower and slower until they
The news of the Pope's death
spread rapidly throughout Rome and
caused a most profound sensation.
The whole city was in mourning.
AFTEI THE POPE'S DEATH.
The occurrences in the death chan
bhr immediatly following the Pope's
demise were of impressive solemnity.
Couriers had been dispatched to
summon those who are dolegated to
peform the first religious offices to
ward the dead Pope, and soon the
chquting of the Franciscan monks
was heard as, two by two, in coarse
brown habits, and with sandalled
feet, they proceeded to the room in
which Leo lay dead. From time
immemorial the Franciscans have
been penitentiaries of St. Peter's.
Following them came the Noble
Guard, to watch over the Pontiff's
remains, the brilliancy of their uni
forms constrasting strikingly with
the sombre attire of the quaintly
robed monks and the solemn dig
nity ot the chamber itself. The only
sound heard was the measured obant
ing of the psalms of penitence, by a
group of monks kneeling beside the
couch of death.
Trhe body lay exactly as it was at
the moment of the Pope's last ex
piring breath. A white veil was
thrown over the dead man's face,
while awaiting the solemn entrance
of the Oamerlingo, who was offiQially
to pronounce the Pontiff actually
The news, "The Pope is dead,"

PRONOUNOINo 'rHE POPE DEAD.
The impressive ceremonial of
recoguizirig,the death of . the Pope
ocourred Tuesday morning, followed
by, the embalmitig of the body.
All the Cardinals present in Rome,
numbering twenty nine, assembled at
the Apostolic Palace to view' the re.
mains of the late Leo XIII and to
officially pronounce him dead.
Within the death chamber the
body lay with a white veil over the 0
face, mn the bed, surrounded by
Franciscan penitentiaries, while out
side the Nnble Guard maiiitained a
solmni vigil. The profound stlence- (
was only broken by the chanting of a
prayers for the dead. Into t his soletin L
presence caine the mourning proces. ]
sion of Cardinals, who, knoeling, t
silently prayed. U
The white veil was removed from I
the dead man's face, revealing the a
cameo-like features of the departed c
Pope, rendered sharper and more
transparent, by death. So life like
was the body that those presnt. half
expected Leo to raise his hand in the
familiar gesture of blessing.
A moment of breathless silence en.
k3lid, and thite the Cardinal Cater
lingo, taking the a4perosiuIm,
sprinkled the late Pontiff with holy
water aiid said in a firm voice:
"Groacchino,'' (the Christian name
of the d1eceased Holy Father.) When
there was no answer the same word
was repeated three times, louder and
louder. A fter which, turning to the
kneeling Cardinals, the Camierlingo
solemnly announced: "P'apa veve
wortuns est." ("The Pope is really
THE FISnERMAN 's RINO.
Following the ceremony of the
recognition of the death of the Pope
by the Sacred College caine another,
shorter, but no less significant and
symbolic. On Leo's hager was the
famous fisherman's ring, which the
Camerlingo, with a whispered pray
er, drew gently off, and which later
will be broken in the presence of the
Cardinals, reset and presented to the
new Pope when he is elected.

that fewer women go on the road

"Men do not regard the woman
commercial traveller with favor, and
many houses employ them simply as
an advertisement to attract attention
to their goods and -make them talked
about in the small townf,. Other
houses refuse to have a woman repre
sent them on the road, and there are
still others who find that the per

a week. Some routes are pleasanter
than others, and it is not always
agreeable to make towns of less than
