FUIDAV AFTKHXOON. .JANCAKV 20, 1922 Pope Benedict In Dying Condition HEAD OF CATHOLIC CHURCH RAPIDLY DEVEL OPS PNEUMONIA AND IS GIVEN THE LAST SACRAMENT-----CROWDS GATHER BEFORE THE VATICAN AS END IS FEARED. (By The ytoeociated Press.) ROME, Jan. twelve- thirty o'clock today it was stat- ed tohat Pope Benedict is in dy- ing condition. Inflammation j which had been confined to his bronchial tubas has extended to right lung. The Pontiff's respir- ation reported early today as dif- ficult, a condition which yester- day was described as not alarm- ing took a turn for the worse during the night. Extra editions of the newspa- pers offered little hope and great crowds began gathering at St. Paul's to await news from" the Vatican. At seven o'clock the! Pope received the holy commun- ion. The Eucharist was solemnly carried to the Pope at eleven- thirty and in the presence of the sighteen cardinals the holy sacra- ment was placed in the Palatine Chapel. Head of Catholic Church Reported Dying Pedestrians Have Narrow Escapes The Pope's condition became grave about eleven o'clock today and oxy- gen was administered. Prayers were offered by the Catholic institutions in Rome. "When he asked for the last sacrament, attendants sought to dissuade hi IK but he insisted on re- ceiving it, "if only for good example." The sudden change came about four- o'clock and is said to have been due to catarrh which had spread to bolii lungs and to pulmonary inflamma- tion. A team of runaway horses caused considerable excitement on North Main street last night about 7 o'clock. Several pedestrians are said to have had close calls from being hurt or perhaps killed by the frightened ani- i nials, which were coming down the steep incline at a terrific rate. For- j tunately no one was injured and no j damage done, with the exception of the wagon, which "was demolished. j After tearing down Xorth Main i street from the top of the hill, the j large wagon, which was swaying i from side to side, finally gave way i under the strain and the coupling broke. This was probably fifty feet i from the railroad crossing. The real- truck of the vehicle was then re- i leased and was hurled with consid- i erable force onto the sidewalk, nar- j rowly missing two young women who were walking down the street. They i were forced to run into a store for protection, and the proprietor thought that a big fight was on hand, j from the commotion and screams. i The .smashing of the wagon did not i stop the animals, but increased their fright. They continued their wild i dash with the front and body j of the wagon trailing behind. An au- I totnobile coming across the bridge had a close call from being struck. The two horses were finally stopped at the south end of the bridge by some men, who jumped in front of them. Two farmers, whose names could not be learned this morning, soon after came down Xorth Main street questioning various peo- ple about their team. No one seem- ed to know at the time, but the two men kept walking and found the ani- j to the Pope, says a Central News1 rnais unhui.t at the south end of the _, _ i brldg.e The men said that they dispatch trom Home.

One of I the men was thrown out, it is under- I stood, when the horses took the sud- den leap, but was not hurt. The j I other jumped, rather than stick to j i the wagon and probably be killed.

Sweeping Power Is Aged Seventy, She Slays Hawk With A Tobacco Stick Pclliam came to the fore this morn- injr with another weird story rival- ling that of the black snake which choked the tortoise to death. j Mrs. Polly Lovelace, seventy years j of agre, has recently been missing her hens. One by one they disappeared, until one day it was discovered that a large hawk was preying on the chicken run and lifting members o.t the feathered population with a lav- ish hand. The hawk was too wary to come within range of gunshot, and although several men had tried to shoot the bird, they had never had a chance. Yesterday Mrs. Lovelace's chance to square the odds came. Hearing a commotion in the chicken run. she hastened there, to find the hawk at grips- with a large hen into which it had sunk its talons. The bird was trying to take the air. and the hen was gamely resisting him. Despite her seventy years, Mrs. Lovelace sailed into the rescue and seizing the first weapon which came her way-r- a. tobacco stick, she smote one lusty biff at the same approximate point where the well known chicken got the axe. and she laid out the aerial monster dead upon the ground. The wingspread of the hawk was two feet. Man Who Ran Over and Killed Carrie' Leffew, Is Freed After Eyewitnesses Tell of Bridge Tragedy. WASIIIXGTOX, Jan.
