factory statistics of 1800 and tho fig
ures for 1809 aro tho ones which tho
law says shall bo taken.
Farmers who keep no records of thoir
transactions will find themselves in tho
sumo dilemma, on tho arrival of tho
census enumerator, as a factory which
destroys its records. Therefore, Chief
Statistician Powers is appculing to all
of them to prepare in writing,
while tho necessary facts aro fn;sh
in mind, such a statement of milk,
cream, butter and cheeeo products us
will enable them to reply prom ptly and
accurately to tho inquiries which tho
law says tho enumerators must make.
If thoy shall fail to do this, tho sta
tistics of dairy products in thoir coun
ty will bo incomplete, and will com
pare unfavorably with those of counties
wherein tho returns aro more accurato.
How the Supreme Pontiff Passes Kach
liny at the Vatican.
Rome, October. 23, 1SW. (Special Cable.)
Pope Leo is an early riser, and Vy
that I mean a man who Is out of bed
and at work at fivo o'clock in the morn
ing. Ho takes a light breakfast a
littlo very weak coffee with plenty of
milk, and a pieco of bread. Ho works,
reading or writing and receiving soino
visits, until lunch time. In tho after
noon ho takes his walk, and when in !
ordinary health Bpends somo time
in the gardens of tho Vatican; then
he returns to his apartment, where ho
says his rosary. Ho may then reccivo
.a low visitors, auer which "u umun u
H Jp and dines. At ten P. M. ho reads
tho newspupcra and then retires lor tno
night. Tho Pope thus really works all
day long, and latterly ho has takci
nourishment four or fivo times a day
but always of a light charactor a lit
tle meat, soups, bouillon, a glass or
two of Mariani wino and a good doal of
milk, which forms tho larger part of j
his diet.
During his rocent illness very littlo
medicine was given him; tho physicians
rolled principally upon rest, nourish
ment and Btimulunts every now and
then, but always in small quantities.
Tho Pope's nervous energy, jib al
ready noted in a previous letter, iH
something remarkable in ono of his ad
vanced years, and when ho comes out
of his apartment ho almost runs walk
ing so fast that his attendants can
hardly keop up with him.
When ho is to bo carried in stato
into tho Sistino Chapel, to attend or
preside at any ceremony, tho clanking
of tho sabres of tho noblo guard on
tho marble floors can bo hoard a long
distance off, and several minutes bo
fore tho procession reaohos tho chapel.

well and enjoying his afternoon nap,
