half the prico.
The sonato and tho houso differed
on tho question of tho amount of post-
age necessary to send out Secretary

cut It to 12300. The senate refused
to concur and the house refusing to

A section hand working In Wallace
county was killed by a train tho other
day. It was found that ho had $2050
on bis person.. It represented his

what bis Job may be.

this little village of Car
pjaete Italy Fepe Leo
XII. was bora. There he
passed his boyhood. Of
this fact the people of Car
plneto are constantly
boasting. When you en-
ter tbe village the first
person you encounter will
ttil you of Its distinction.
Almost half a century has passed
since tho holy father looked upon the
village and he will never see It again.
But his thoughts are ever turned to-
ward It. How this wonderful man who
was born when the past century was In

vote so much attention to bis birth-

those who are familiar with the vast
amount of work he performs
All of Carplneto revolves about the
pope. All Its stories are of him and
men of 70 tell tales which were banded
down to them by their fathers and
Among all the millions of people the
world over who give love aad revennco

about the personality of tbe man In the
place of his birth than In the Vatican

oiily a few hours' Journey by rail from
Rome to Montslanlco where one takes

four mules and guarded by two cara-
blnlers armed with rifle sword revolv-
er and stiletto. Tbe Italian govern-

cate that tbe precautions are not mere-
ly a matter of form. But for an hour
or two one will not see a hut or habita-
tion and more than likely not a human
Suddenly at a turning In the road
the driver points out a great country
house which he calls the Peed casino
and below It Is "Carplneto. the birth-
plaea of our holy father." The village
was founded more than ten centuries
ago by the warliko VolscI the robber
knights of the mlddlo ages. These
earliest settlers bad to hew Into the
solid rock In order to build their hous-
es and at this day the total number of
them Is not more than 500.
One goes on foot through a stony
back lone known aa the Corso to tbe
first homo of Leo XIII called like ev-
ery nobleman's home in Italy a palace.
It looks to American eyes more like a
fort than a stately residence. The bouso
Is two and a half stories high with a
modest balcony in front. The lower row
of windows Is not more than fctir and
one-half feet high and Is guarded by
It was In this bouse that the holy
father passed bis childhood. Although

and one may see tbe room where the
holy fathers mother kept tbe silk
worms whlsh furnished the money for
his education and that of his brother

dation for tbelr success.
Everywhere one hoars stories about

Father Sslvagnl la the only surviving
schoolmate of tbe pope In Carplneto.
He Is a small thicket man who says
bs is at least 90 years old and who Is
still proud of his muscle even boast-
ing of It like a youth In tho first flush
" 'Scr Nino Leo was tbe most courag-
eous mountain climber I erer saw"
said Father Salvognl. "and we bavo
long bsen famous for our skill In moun-
taineering In this part of the country.
And at one time he was the best shot
in these mountains. Bo great was bis
skill with tbe rifle that he disdained to
shoot a bird except on the wing.
"But study ruined his marksmanship.
It is a great pity. I was ashamed of
blm tbe last time be visited cs In Sep-
tember. 1857. With other huntsmen I
had gone out on the road near Monte-
Ian I co to meet blm. He recognized me
In the throng and begged me to lend
blm my rifle. I handed tbe weapon to
him. He aimed at a bird aad hit a tree.
It cut me to tbe heart He tbe best ri-
fleman in the mountains to miss an
easy shot! He never used a gun again.
I snppose he felt the disgrace too keen-
ly. He left us on Nov. 2 of that same
year never to return."
In bis youth the holy father was al-
ways called "Nino" and Father Sal-
vago! so called him In speaking of their
boyhood days. He walked over the
grounds where be and the pops used to
"There" he said pointing to a grot-
to; "there we used to lie in ambush for
rabbits more than seventy-five years
The grotto Is near tbe Cello Orecchle
or Hill of Ears. The name waa given
to It back In tbe middle ages because It
was on this bill that the men of Car-
plneto cut off the ears of prisoners
from the town of Basslano. Twenty
years late those of Basslano had tbelr
revenge for they captured many of tbe
Carplneto fighters and on this same
hill not only cut off their ears but
their noses aa wall.
In the Peccl palace there stands In a
corner of an upper room a flint lock
with an excessively long barrel while
all about are the uniforms and cos
tumes of the male Feeds most of
whom were In the service of tbe vat!
can as courtiers councilors Jurists
prelates or military officers and tbe
bishops' and cardinals' robes miters
crozlers episcopal rings stores and
slippers belonging to the holy father
as well as the first white cassock he
wore when be became pope.
It was with this rifle that the future
pope won bis fame aa a marksman and
that Its possession meant much to him
In those days of poverty Is Indicated by
a letter carefully prepared which
shows how he came by it Freely trans-
lated It reads:
"Dar Brother Tltta: My friend Prel-
ate Longby .offers to let me have his
gun cheap for 9 scudl; be paid IS for It.
Think of some means to obtain the
money for me. This Is aa opportunity
which comes only once In a lifetime.
Vour loving brother. NINO."
In a gathering of leading citizens
who bad known "he pope tbe young-
est who waa over 70 told a story that
bis mother had told him.
"My family used te be serfs of the
Paccle" he said "and one day my
mothir brought the Us consisting of
cream aad cheese. Nino aa the holy
father was always called as a child
was ro anxious to have a taste of the
cream that he fell la hla mad haste.
When my motlwr picked him up she

beaten. That was when he was 12 years
old. He and his brother who was a
year older were so much excited when
their mother the Countess Anna was
pusued to her very door by brigands
thst they went forth to have a good
view of the robbers. In those days the
banditti were picturesque-looking cre-
atures wearing velvet coats and trous-
ers with sliver buttons red shirts and
had handkerchiefs and carrying many
knives and pistols. Tbelr father rescued
the youngsters Just In time and then
be thrashed them with much vigor.
To this day there Is nothing the holy
fslher lores better than to recall his
youth In Carplneto. Notwithstanding
tbc years that have pasted since he was
in his native vlllsge. he keens close
track of everything tliat goes on there
Not long since tbe rector of 8t John's
church In Carplneto took to Rome
members of eight or nine families that
tbe holy father might biers them In
passing. They were boys and girls Just
confirmed. Leo stood still before the
group and calling up one after anoth-
er he said: "Are you not old Peppo's
son or grandson? And you; are you not
Sabine's daughter? And you must be-
long to the Nagnls." He went on nam-
ing tbe family of each recognizing tbe
traits and characteristics and be made
not a slnglo mistake.
Nothing Is more eloquent of tho
pope's love for bis native village than
tbe vast sums he has already expended
for Its regeneration and tbe work Is
still going on. Tbe works are under tbe
care of Monslgnore Adam) wbom bo
has appointed papal protector for Car-
plnto. The most Important Is tbe new
waterworks which will give an abun
dant and sorely needed supply. For tbe
holy father was cheated when be bad
the first waterworks built The supply
falls during a part of the year com-
pelling the people to walk miles for a
Jug of drinking water. The new works
which Include artificial lakes reser-
voirs and a conduit hewn partly
through th csolld rock will give an am
ple supply for Carplnto and tbe neigh-
boring villages as well.
Tho pope has already established an
old people's home which be maintains.
It is a large lofty building.
The pope also built and maintains tho
Peccl hospital which I under the care
of the French Sisters of the Holy Sac-
rament It baa a hundred beds which
seem too many for a town of 700 fam-
ilies but those who benefit from It take

pope Is having built two additional
common schools an agricultural acad-
emy and a school for artisans and
tradespeople. He pays for everything
buildings furnishing apparatus and
teachers. More than that he provides
breakfast for tbe scholars because ho
knows bow meager la tbo fare they
bavo in their own homes.
The holy father has also rebuilt and
refurnished the church of St John and
the basilica of St Jacob which had
been almost entirely destroyed. Ho has
also buift a third church called tho
Collegiate cnurcn ana ne gave a con-
siderable sum to the church of St

The recent volcanic disturbances In
Guatemala recalls some Interesting his-
tory In connection with volcanic dis-
turbances In that republic history
which rivals the moot dramatic and
tragic inventions of tbe brain of tho
novelist and outrivals the conceptions
of tbe most Inventive playwright.
Thcro are In the llttlo republic of
Guatemala with an area of but 60000
square miles more than 30 volcanoes
tbo most remarkable- of which are the
volcanoes of Tacana and Tajumllco In
San Marcos Zunil Santa Tomas Santa
Clara Santa Maria (11174 feet high)
Quezaltcnaogo (10104 feet high) Atlt-
lan San Pedro Agua (12197 feet high)
Fuego (13487 feet high Pacay (8287
feet high) and Acatenango In the de
partment or cnimatcnango which tow-
ers over all the others having an alti-
tude of 14.072 feet
Agua (water) and Fuego (fire) aro
twin peaks and It was upon tho breast
of these dormant monsters that the an-
cient capital of the republic rested.
It will be remembered that tho con-
quest of Guatemala was accomplished
by that talented but cruel adventurer
Alvarado. Leaving Mexico on tho Cth
of December 1523 with 300 Infantry
120 cavalry four cannon several hun-
dred Mexican warriors and thousands
of slates to transport the baggage be
marched through the country conquer-
ing all who opposed blm burning at
tbe stako kings and Incinerating tbelr
towns until on July 25 1524 tbe last
foe had been subdued and be proclaim-
ed the sovereignty of the king of Spain
over Guatemala and established his
capital at the native town of Aliiolon-
ga. giving It the name of "Tbe City of
St James the Gentleman."
After tbe work of the improvement
of his capital city was well under way
Alvarado returned to Mexico and tbenco
to Spain where bo was loaded with
honors was made governor adelantado
and captain general of Guatemala and
took to himself a wlfo In tbe person of
Dona Beatrice do la Cueve daughter
of one of tbe most Influential families
of Spain and a woman as ambitious
as was Alvarado himself.
Upon their return to Guatemala they
found things in a prospering condition.
and Alvarado set out to win new laurels
In tho field of conquest In 1511. while
In Mexico be beard of tho fabled "Sev-
en Cities of Cibola" and was planning
tr go northward In search of them
when be met with tho accident which
cost him his life. When tbc news of
his death reached the widow sho sum-
moned the alcaldes and regldors to the
palace and proclaimed herself Goberna-
dora. Then cxtcnslvo preparations
were made for a most spectacular cere-
mony In meicory of her late husband.
It was then that one of tbe sleeping
volcanoes awoko and made for itself
tbe first authentic history wo have of
disturbances of that nature in Guate-
mala. It also produced a most dramntlc
situation during tbe ostentatious cere-
monies of tbe ambitious woman gover-
nor of the province. It waa tbo even

were in progress when the air became
thick and heavy and dense clouds

came the volco of thunders and fre-
quent and blinding flashings of light-
ning. Suddenly the earth began to
heave and shako with terrible convul-
sions a sbowor of rocks sand sticks
and dtbrfs rained down upon the city
and the panic-stricken populace fled to
the churches and chapels hoping thero
to receive protection at tho hands of
tbc God they pretended to serve. Then
came the crowning disaster. Tho great
mountain vomited forth not Arc
smoke lava and ashes as n well-regulated
volcano Is supposed to do but an
avalancho of water which tore down
tbo mountain side. Carving a channel
hundreds of feet deep and bearing tbo
earth nnd treat and rock beforo It It
dashed Into tbe city obliterating tho
streets tearing down adlflccs and

Dona Beatrice wncn the first convul-
sions shook tbe city forgot her ambi-
tions and forsook the pomp and gorge-
ousness of tbe palace and fled to the
chapel near by where clinging to tho
crucifix she was crushed beneath the
crumbling walls. The total loss of life
was placed at l.COO.
Not so picturesque In Its details but
many times more disastrous was tho
second destruction of the capital which
was removed after tbo first disaster to

Tbe great city crumbled beneath the
tremblings of the earth like so much

her Inhabitants were killed. A very
small percentage of tbe population es-
caped. Tbe dead were never counted or
buried except ns tboy were burled be-
neath tbe debris of the ruined city; tbe
wounded were never rescued but per-
ished of their injuries or else died from
thirst and hunger. Tbe city was aban-
doned never to be rebuilt and today

terrible catatrophe. From tbe tower
