Respiration 36; pulse, 92, weak; temperature, 37 centigrade. ^The general condition in always grave and there is no immediate danger. I Rome. July 1:5.— Pope Leo is credited with having said: "If I am destined to (iie from this 1 feel I shall expire on Thursday, the feast day of Carmelite Madonna, whom I especial ly worship." This presentiment is re markabie because in a certain \vay it . coincides w'ith a prophecy in the twelftii century by Saint Malachy, bishop of Armage, who predicted that Pope Leo would be succeeded by a pope symbolizing the motto, "Ignes ArJens," (burning fire). Carmelite Madonna is a patroness of the Carmelite order, which attributes its origin to the Prophet Elijah, who was sent to heaven in a chariot of fire. Besides a member and protector of this ordor is Cardinal Lotii, who is looked upon as the most likely successor to the pontificate. Monsignor Piffeoi. confessor of the pope, feels offended becau.=:e he has not been |allowed to enter the sick chamber and is especially di satisfied with the physicians, believing it is duo to them that he is ex eluded. This mprning he again requested to be permitted to see the pope. On hearin.? the request the pontiff safid: "When I need him I shall send tor him." and Monsignor Pifferi left the Vatican ' considering hiihself an injjircd man. - Rome. 2:10 p. m. The popes condition lcx»k a tu|rn sKghtly for the worse this morning but,the change doei? noi exriie iapprehension of an immediate climax. Last night was a rather sleepless one pthticularly during the early niorning hours. The official bulletin | frankly speaks -jf agitated periods <iuring the night and confesses that the general condition of the patient is .snmo what more depressed. It dcvc'lope*! soon after the issuance of the bulleUn that, this depression was quite marked and it continued to manifest itself : throughout the forenoon, at one time assuming an alarming aspect.' This was when the pope seepied to lose his grasp on •tangible surroundings. For the first time since his illness began there was a momentary haOucination. the patient believing that a shadow flitted through the room. The doctor and attendant succeeded in quieting his fears. Outside these passing pediods of depression, the general condition of mental alertness continues. When doctors Mazzoni and LaptK >ni made their morning call the patient inquired about Dr. Rossoni asking: "Why doesn't hecomc to see me?" .Being told that Dr: Roz- zoni was ill, he said: "Tell him he must take care of himself." Rome, July 13.—Dizziness has be- conjie pronounced' and is accompanied by fleeting hallucinations. It iJeveloi}- ed during the morning as a result of careful medical examinations that the condi|ion of thej pope's kidneys is worse ,as the component parts of the urine are not nonpaL The diminution of certain elements leads the doctot^ to fear that his system is gradually ap- ]^t>ach[ng a state of dissolution.

TiBEE DEAO; Sim-TMRT i ____ HEAD-ON COLLISION ON THE MISSOURI PACIFIC NEAI^ KANSAS CITY. One Train Was Qitabled and Tried to Flag the Fast Mail, But Engineer Didn't See Signal. Kansas City, July 13.—Three dead and approximately sixty-two people injured, is the result of the wreck of a Sunday excursion over the Missouri Pacific railroad from Kansas City to Sedalia yesterday morning. It was a head-on collision between the St. Louis fast maih due at the Union station at 10:30 in ihu forenoon and the excursion train which pulled out of the Union depot at 9:30 yesterday morn- ng. The latter train was made up of eight coaches and a baggage car, and all went well until Dead Man's curve was reached. At this point the packing in the 'piston of the locomotive drawing the excursion train blew out, completely deadening the machinery and bringing the cars to a standstill. The place where the accident occurr ed is three iand one-half miles east of the Little Blue, and on a piece of curved track which describes the letter "S." The grade at this point is very heavy, and when the piston packing blow cut E^ngineer George McVay and his fireman, John Berger, realized the danger of• a shut down in such a treacherous part of the road and they fried io get over the grade by sprink ling the slippery track with sand. "This proved ineffective, so the engine lever was reversed and the necessary precautions taken to guard against collisions from trains approaching fro'^the rear. McVay and Berger gor down out of the cab to fix the piston and Conductor Hardy being cognizant of the fact that the fast St. Louis mail was soon tV put in appearance dispatched Brakeman C. .C. Crews to flag the train a mile distant away. Crews had orders to put out a slow down flag a mile away, and he says he did so and then came back to the entrance to the curve to flag the St. Louis train down when it appeared. The St. Louis train was in charge of Elijgineer George McCitire. cf Sedalia; his fireman was Jack Sutler, also 6f Sedalia, and the conductor was J. M. Spangler, of St. Louis. This train came along thirty-six minutes late, and was running at a speed of forty miles an hour. McClnre claims he did not see the flag to slow down that Crews insists he set out a mile down the road, and that the first knowledge he had of anything being wrong was when his train was approaching the curve. The rapidly approaching and ponderous locomotive struck the^tfid engine and drove the tender of the latter clear through the baggage car, reducing It to splinters and burying wlozens of people beneath the debris. The St. Louis train engine plowed out the south rail, and fell over the embanli- meat and landed ten feet.away from Its engineer, McClure, who lay on the ground unable to get up. 1 II RAISE PROBABLE THEY WILL GET ADVANCE OF 12'/2 CENTS ALL AROUND.
