tonight showed less aversion to the

a cup of consomme, a piece ot toast
and a few sips ot old wine.
In,. these words Dr. .Lapponl. summed Up
for the Associated Press -this evening the
pontiff's condition at the end of the sec
ond week6f his. illness, in all the varying
periods of which the pontiff has scarcely
had a quieter day than this, with the re
sult that tonight's official bulletin declares
him to be a little less depressed. In the
rooming, after a night" during which
stimulants and nursing restored him to a
fairly good condition, the pope complained
of soreness due to the many days he had
passed in bed. To relieve this and to
humor him tho patient was allowed to sit
in hla armchair for a short time, with an
apparent good effect. i
The celebration of a mass in honor of
St. Leo and the pope's conversation with.

After tonight's examination it appears
that the liquid In the pleura appears at
about the same level, which Is marked
with a dermographic pencil on the pon
tiff's side. The physicians think the
liquid amounts to about 1200 grams. Con
sidering the physical condition of the
pope, the doctors do not believe it possible
that his "body can absorb it.
After the visit of the physicians the pope
received Cardinal Rampolla, who remained
in the sickroom only a few minutes. He
again gave the pontiff a full report of tho
prayers offered in hisVbehalf all over the
world. His holiness, raising both bandB,

the great reception given by Monsignore
Ajute at Lisbon to celebrate his elevation
to the cardlnalate,. and over the solemnity
with which Cardinal Agliardl today took
possession of his new office of vlce-chan
cellor of the church. The Associated Press
correspondent, however, learns that tho
pope himself, in his last Interview with
Cardinal Agliardl, urged the performance
of today's ceremony.
In sharp contrast with these ceremonies
arc the continuous preparations at the
"VMixan for the death of the pontiff. A
huge nplt 12 feet long, which has been
used for roasting food for the conclaves
since the time of Gregory XVL was
brought from an old storeroom today and
will be employed to roast quarters of beef
for the Isolated cardinals while they are
deliberating in the conclave over the elec
tion of a successor to Leo XIII.
Drs. Lapponl and Mazzonl absolutely
deny the statement published In the
United States that Pope Leo Is suffering
from cancer, and ridicule it as an ignorant
invention. They say they are sure that
Dr. Rossoni takes the same view.

night, as well as throughout the morn

his breathing was better. While he
does not want any one constantly
In the room, the pontiff rings fre
quently for trivial causes, thus showing
beyond doubt his desire for companion
ship. He has taken very frequently sips
of meat broth, alternated with half-spoonfuls
of chicken gelatin.
When asleep the pontiff appears to be
dead. His cheeks are sunken, his eyes
are hollow and his jaws are exception
ally prominent, the skin being tightly
drawn over the face. The pope appears
to retain life only In his brilliant black
eyes, though he recovered the lucidity of
his mind this morning and .gave fresh
proof of his wonderful vitality and mem

over his body. Therefore, he wished to

he did some days- -ago, or walk to his
chair, so his ever-watchful valet clothed
him. and almost carried him to the arm
chair, the pontiff frequently thanking his
servants", and remarking that they must
be very tired.
Tho pope understands tne gravity of nis
condition and says he is ready to die, but
he does not realize the imminence of his
danger, as again demonstrated when his
confessor, Morsigncre Pifferi, asked to see
him. The pontiff, on being informed DT

without calling for him."
