It was decided to perform an operation for inincturing the pleura and it took place at two o'clock today. The pope underwent the • operation witli courage, and at 3:15 he was resting and his general condition better. By his express desire all of, the pope's relatives have been to see him today. The scene was nu )St touching. His nephews, to whom he had been a real father, entered the room sobbing. His holiness soothed them, saying: •«p***^,feel tgu moment approachhig when y-mual leave you. Say our last ],'oort- bye. I am about to enter eternal life. lUit do not grieve for me. I am about to enter my real happiness." Before leaving tlie room tliey 9II kissed ^the hand of the pontiff. The pope passed a restless, slceiv less night. This morning when - Dr. Mazzoni entered his rbqm he aiiked: "How is your holiness"?" The pontiff, in a faint voice, replied: "I have no illusion and am resigned." After last night's collapse although awaro for the flrst time of his danger, the pope literally forced himself to take a greater quantity of nourishment.'. He asked to be told the moment that the danger^becomes imminent. Thcj pope tills morning cxiiressed a dcsinj to again take communion, notwithstanding the fact that he received thpilasl commiinion on Sumlay and exltieme unction yesterday evening. . Mopsig- nor Marzolini, one of the chaniber- lains, therefore performed both ceremonies. The pope showed great serenity repeating that he felt <julte prepared to leave the world. The pope still takes a keen interest in what fhe press says about him and this I morning, having expressed a desire to read the papers, special editions were :preparcd and sent to him. • . Rome. July 7.—Shortly before the operation the pope remarked to those • around him: "I thank God that be has vouchsafed to me the boon ofi being able to say goodbye to qll. I love you all but lam tired and am glad to go." After the operation Dr. Mazzoni said the danger jremaincd imminent but that the illniess from Ovv^icU the pope •was suffering was full ' of surprises. His holiness might even live three days longer. Rome, July 7, 3:55 a. m.—^Another morning has broken on the pathetic scene I within the simple chamber of the Vlatican j where Popej Leo jlles Jy ing. As thd soft light df dawn pene lii^ced Into the room, the i»outiff whls pared, to hisjdevoted physician that he desired the shutters of the wiudowsi to be opened, Isaying: "I wish to see once more, perhaps for the last lime, the' rays of ijhe sun." It was just a short •while after the pope pamo bock to conBciousucss from a sleep which. Dr. Lapponi bad induced by a strong dose of chloral.

Pope Leo awoke wet with perspiration, feeble to the extreme, and his voice hardly audible. The fits of coughing had brought pains in his chest and shoulders, and, thinking his end was near, he said to Dr. Lapponi: "Tell mc when the time really comes." The doctor assured his hoIlncBS that he believed the danger of his immediate passing w?5 averted for the night and for today. These seemingly last moments of Pope Leo arc full of solemnity. Perhaps Ills last hours would be less melancholy and sad if the august suflTorcr were less conscious of the circumstances and his mind less clear as to the duration of lime remaining to hini before lie enters eternity. ; Although his physical powers are at the lowest ebb, and liis breathing becomes more labored, the pojio 's mind is dear, as is manifested io all around him by his bright, expressive cles and the few words he now and then .succri'ds in uttering. The scene is so touching that those present can scarco restrain tiu'ir tears. Count Canilllo I'occi, the i»opc 's ncjihew, whom tlie dying man kept by his bedside ycsler- hiy. was so exhausted late last night by his contoniling emotions that ho ha<l lb be taken from his uncle 's room, completely worn out. A few moments before^ as he stood bowed besiilc the bed,:Pope Leo laid his hand on his head with parental affection, sayin.i^: "Take courage." Shortly after 10 o 'clock at night the pontiff received' the extreme unction. At 0 o'clock his condition seemed so hopeless that only a short time apparently remained before he would glide into his sleep. At Dr. Lapponi 's invitation, aliasty consultation of the pope 's relatives. Cardinal Ram^^ polla and other ecclesiastics was held and it was decided thai, extreme unction should be given. The pontiff received the announcement with his usual calmness, and. though scarcely able to speak audibly, he said he knew his time had come and he was ready to appear before the sublime tribunal with full trust in the Divine mercy. The twenty-fourth anniversary cf I'ope Leo 's corronation was celebrated at the Vatican July 6, 1902, by the lent ire papal court J ^nd thousands of members of all the Catholic societies assembled in Rome I for th<||'occasion. The last notable encyclical of Leo :XIiI was dated October 30, 1902, and iwas designed topromote study of the Scriptures, and in February of this year he wrote a poem, dedicated to a friend wliom the pontiff desired to advise on the best means of prolonging life. The twcnty-flflh anniversary of the late pope 's election to tlie chair of St. Peter was celebrated February 20 of this year with elaborate pomp in the Hall of Beatification, above the portico of St. Peter^ on which occasion the venerable prelate was presented with a gold tiara, costing $25,000, .'is the jubilee present of the Catholic world and with large sums of money from various sources. The celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the late pope 's cora- tion occurred in St. Peter's March 3, last, with all the impressivcncss and grandeur of the Catholic church, and on April 2S the Pontificate of the late pope surpassed in length that of St Peter, Leo ' XIII having then been elected pope twenty-five years, two months and seven days, known as "the years of Peter." King Edward visited the late pope in the latter part of April, and Emperor William was received by the late pontiff early in May.
