Those interested in coincidences point out that tliu Pone died on A ust 20, exactly elovon years and one month after the death of Pope Leo on July 20, 1003. Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto, known to the world as Pope Pius X., was el- ected to the pontificate on August 4, 1903, and during his occupancy of his exalted office as bead of the Roman Catholic Church, he was confronted with some of the most momentous problems, religious and governmental, which the Holy See has had to deal in modern times. Pope Pius was born on June 2, 1S35, in the Venetian provinces, the first child of Gian-Battista Sarto, a post- man, and his wife .Marghertta.

From Castelfranco he passed 1850 to the seminary at Padua, and in 1858, at the age of twenty-five, was ordained priest, and took up his dut- ies at. Tombolo. In 1S87 he had bis first parish of importance, that of Sal- zano, 'where he remained for eleven years. In addition to 'his ecclesiastical duties, Father Sarto contributed large- ly to tho support of his mother and sisters, who found life a hard strug- gle, especially in the winter. His eloquence led to his being call- ed at the age of forty, to Troviso, as chancellor of the diocese, and shortly after be was appointed professor of theology in the seminary.

Creating him cardinal, Leo XIII. ap- pointed him also Patriarch of Venice, but he did not 'ieave Mantua until a year Inter, owing to the conflict be- tween the Italian government and the Holy Sec, over the right of the House of Savoy to be consulted before, the appointment of a Patriarch, the gov- ernment having inherited the rights of the Republic of Venice. The dispute was cut short by King1 Humbert also appointing Cardinal Sarto as Patriarch of Venice; The Patriarch's relations with the: House of Savoy were always most cor- dial. Every time that their Majesties or the princes visited Venice he paid them a visit and presented his horn-! nge. He was one of Queen Margber-1 ita's confessors, and only a fmv i months before the death of Leo XIII., he was next tlie Count of Turin in) public, when he (the Patriarch) blessed the foundation stone of the new Campanile in the Piazza San Marco.
