Thrjee Deaths and Five prostrations In New York—TUO Deaths in Philadelphia. Other Complications, however, Offset Ground For Hope—May Live Fifteen Days. Rome, July 11, 7 p. m.—The pope has passed the day quiolly and his general condition remains salibrac- tory. mi Rome. July 11.—The pope slept woll and his Rcneral condition Js reported as. good. Contrary to his usjual habit Ihe pope did not get up (his' morning, not because of any unusual Uoprcs- slon ,as his general condillou Is somewhat improved., but because the doctors nrged him to rest as much as JKIS- ^blc and to stay in Jicd. The foregoing comes from authorativo sources, thus disproving a report that the pope was failing rapidly. At noon the pope took his midday nourishment of sweet - breads, chicken, jelly and a small glass of wine. Shortly after the midday meal the pope fell into a peaceful sleep, which still continues. The pope slept several hours and those:about him considered the sleep natural and arising from an augmentation of his weakness. At 4 o.'clock he awakened and .dissipated the fear of the approach , of a state of coma. A representative of the Associated Press saw the pope's doctors after this morning's visit and they assured him .that the amelioratjion which had taken place in condition of the pope silnce the last operation was more noticeable, than. any which had occurred since the pontiff b'ecame ill, but it >va^ not.sufficient to enable them to consider the patient out of imminent danger. Nevertheless, hopes of the pope '3 recovery have again risen at the Vatican, through the restful night,* taken as a whole, passed by the pontiff. Dr. Lapponi paid a visit to the pope at 7 o'clock. The pontiff, at first;, was not in a good humor, saying he could not stand remaining so many hours in bed, never having been accustomed to lie tlown for longer than four or five hours at a lime. The doctor, however, succeeded in convincing him thJit when persons are ill it is necessary io change^ their habits even if they seem not to be so comfortable. "Is it really necessary?" asked the pontiff. LapponI replied: "It is not indispensable, but it will certainly assist our efforts." "Then," concluded the pope, "I must i do so." ^- After this the j)ontiff's face assumed its habitual bright .benevolent expression and he smiled as ho had done in his best moments. This conversation wiith the idoctor succeeded in so tranquilizing the pope that he rcfHse <l to see his confessor. Having expres.s- cd a desire to hear mass, the pontiff"? secretary celebrated ii in a chapel aX- jacent to the sick room. • Later in the day the pope received the Countess Canalli and Countess Moroni, his: nieces, and after a short chat with them asked about Monsignor Volpino, • saying: "What is the matter? Why dbcs he not; come to , see me?" It was explained to the Pontiff that the excitement of the last few. days had overcome Volpoui, who was quite unwell, but the pope was not informed that Volponi was dead. A. rumor circulated to the effect that the • pope is suffering from inflammation jof the kidneys, is denied by Dr. Mazzoni. The pope continues to hold his own. A slight improvement is manifested in the primary ailment but the condition of the kidneys now givev cause for a renewal of anxiety. This is increased by the danger of the pontiff's heart giving out at any moment. In a general way, however, tfa 'e brave old patient may be said to be more comfortable thaa for several days. The doctors now say ihqy w <Suld scarcely i be Borprised if the see saw between , illfe ind death continues for jmothcr flfteeh-'days.

WANT IMMEDIATE RELEASE. Kansjas Divorces Now Are Inoperative for a Period of Six Months. Toi)cka. July 11.—At the October term jof the siipnicre court will be argued ;thG^ constitutionality of the l<>gis- lativcj provision making a judgment of divorce inoperative for a period of six nonths after it is rendered.

The exact results of the expedition are-yet to be known, however, as the fossils arc still inclosed in their matrices of rock and- nci'd to be chiseled out and clas-sified by the scientists. The expedition first spent ten days unearthing specimens at Soda Springs. Idaho, and left Ihem at Wood Canyon, near the railroad, for transportation to the miiversity. I'he specimens are ^11 ammonites, taken" from the lower triassic Strata of the fo.>^.-il l»eds. The party then vjsitcfl Paris, where"'a number of fragments were found. At Evanston, Wyo., however, the most imjiortant results were obtained, consisting of the bones and vertebrae of a number of rcptffian monsters and animals.
