SEEING THE POPE.
A Detroit Clergyman's Visit td
Popo Leo XIII
From the Detroit Kreo Press.
"When I was In Kurone." said a Cath-
olio clergyman I determined no( to leave
before I could sec I'ope Leo XIII. 1 had
been In Home several days viewing the
eights of tho Klernal City And made the
acquaintance of n priest who has the
title of '.Monselgnor.' To him I made
my wish known nnd be promised to as-
sist mo In catching n glimpse of the
head of the chun-h. It Is nn exceed-
ingly difficult matter for n visitor to get
n view or tbe Holy Father and I con-
sider that I had good luck although I
did not have the pleasure or speaking n
word to him I wunlcd to see lilm
while taklnir n walk or n drive In the
Vatican" garden which Is his daily cus-
tom. My now-made acquaintance pro-
vided mo with tho necessnry credentials
and I wits told Hint tbe l'ope would ap-
pear In the garden Hint nllernoon. I
resenieu mjseii uciore mo appointed
our.and after nnsslng the Swiss guard
and showing my credentials several
times. 1 round myself for tbe first time
In my life In tbe Vatlcnn garden. 1 need
not describe the benuty of It as It has
been tiiueli written about. There wero
only n few of us present nnd we
anxiously awaited the appearance of
His Holiness. Suddenly n mounted cav-
alier with n drawn aword rode through
the garden nnd carefully scrutinized
all of us I did not know what
this meant but was told afterward that
the cavalier performs this duty previous
to tbe Pope's appearance lo satisfy him-
self that there are no enemies around.
It will be remembered Hint an attempt
was made by n Uaribnldlan to ussassl-
note the lamented Pope Plus IX. The
nouiu-ue assassin secrcteu nimseii in
the garden after having gained access
by some siirrentltlousmeans. We wait
ed a few minutes when a carriage drove
up to I lie tioor anu t lie rope came out.
He Is a venerable-appearing man with
an Intellectual look and wore while.
His slippers were cardinal re l nnd glit-
tered with maenlllcent lewels. The
coachman showed profound respect for
Dim anu gnve mm a snort drive mien
the I'ope returned be Immediately went
back to his apnrtinents but appeared
to be very feeble as be went up the stairs
leading to them Tho coachman re-
ceived bis blessing after letting hlin out
of the carriage but be did not sneak a
word to li I in. Wo were told that the
l'ope occasionally walks or rides out
twice a day. tVlien.be leaves the conch-
man without blessing lilm It Is a sign
that he will come out again nnd I lie
servant Is on hand at 6 o'clock for the
second drive; otherwise not. The coach-
man has been employed at the Vatican
fur many years. After having our wish
gratified wo wero let out tbe garden
nnu again nau to pass ine military sin-
tloned nrounJ the premises."
A GOOD WORD FOR TRAMPS.
A Much Abused Class Having
Soms Good Points.
From i lie Memphis Appoil.
"I buve noticed n great deal In the
papers lately about tramps" sulci a resi-
dent to an Appeal man yesterday "and
I must say I think there Is n side to the
question which seems to be lost sight of
altogether. An Injustice may be done
even to n tramp. I am now nearly 70
years or age and have lived In Memphis
nearly half my life so I Ihltik 1 may
claim to have some .knowledge of tbe
character of the class of tramps who
visit the city. I say trnmps becauso
Hint term has by common consent come
to be applied Indiscriminately to nil of
the unfortunates who arrive here stran-
gers without money or good clothes. I
know there are some of them who do not
care to work nnd travel from city to
city living by what they can beg or
steal. Hut as In all my experience I
have never known but one of tbe kind 1
think the whole number must be com-
paratively small. Some years ago my wife
and I bad n discussion about this new
subject and agreed lo keen a memoran-
dum of all tbe trumps w bo visited the
bouse during tbe year. None wero ever
turned away but no food was given any
one of them until some trilling service
bad first been performed. When Hie
work given one to do was as my wllo
believed worth more thnn n meal a
dime orquarter would bo given tboinnn.
They were told to return the next day
lr they round nothing to do and were
still hungry. A great tunny or them
were so III that tboy were hardly able to
walk but only one appeared who did
not gladly perform the service required
or him. At the end or the year we ran
over the memorandum nnd found Hint
about 300 had been fed during the pe-
riod Only ten bod returned a second
time olid four a third time. One only
ns I have nlreudy mentioned declined
to perform the service required of him.
All or the others were glsd tO' be able
to do soiuMhlng to' earn the food
given t lie ii . '1 he best servant w'e ever
bad belonged to the trump fraternity.
He asked for something to eat and
when Informed that there was n. irood
square meal wnltjng for nny one who
would split enough kindling to get sup-
per he expressed Ids satisfaction In tbe
most unmtstnknble way. He cut enough
klndl'.iig to light 20 fires brought several
buckets of water nnd piled up the bin
with coal. We liked the way he went
about his work so well Hint we em-
ployed him and be remained with us
nearly two. years. It Is probable he
would have been about tbe bouse vet.
but we left the city for nearly n j car
nnu lie was oongeu io seen employment
elsewhere 1 do not think the facts will
Justify a wholesale abuse of the poor
fellows who come here every year home-
less and buncry. Offer them work and
yon will see bow quickly they take It."
