Mrs. Russell Sage
Ends Eventful Life
Last Years Of Life Spent In Spend
ing In Charities The Millions Left
By Her Husband Was An Able
Executive Aided Institutions
NEW YORK, Nov. 4
Sago died here today.
Margaret Olivia Sago, until she
reached middle life had only the
meagre Income of a school teacher,
and then in a day she found herself
mistress of one of the greatest for
tunes in America. Her early days
j were devoted to scraping together
enough money to give herself a fair
education, and her last were spent
in developing tho science of giving
money away. During the last seven
j years of complete stewardship of Ihe
j $70,000,000 left by her husband, Rus
yell Sage, she returned nearly $30,
000,000 to the public by systematic
"My experience has taught me,"
she had said recently, "that succoss
i ful people are those who take what
iconics to hand, and, if it be small,
wait and work for something better.
The root of failure lies often in the
thought that you ran do but one
thing and must do that or nothing."
This practical philosophy developed
when she was a girl in Syracuse, N.
V her birthplace. Her father, Joseph
Slocum, was so reduced in circum
stances by the panic of 1837 that the
daughter at the age of only nine years
was obliged to help In the upkeep of
the household. At the age of 1G she
started for Mount Holyoke College ex
pecting to work her way for font
years by housework, but sickness
overtook her on her way and she was
compelled to stop at an uncle's house
in Troy. Later she was induced to
enter Emma Willard's Seminary at
Troy, and after a hard battle for self
support she was graduated and he
came a school teacher. For nearly
20 years afterward she continued her
battle, teaching schools in Philadel
phia, Syracuse and Troy until, at the
age of 41 years, she became the wife
of Russell Page, then a frugal banker
at Watervliet, N. Y.
Their home life was simple, despite
their wealth. Mrs. Sage took such a
deep interest in her husband's affairs
that he turnod over to her five years
before his death complete control of
his business and found that his faith
was borne out by her successful opera
tions. Cut she was proudest of her
ability to support, herself altogether
independent of wealth, and of her
"If my cook should leave me today",
she once said, "I could do the work
myself without winning all over the
city for another girl before we had
something to eat. Housework is one
of the best occupations I know. Girls
should take up housework, even as
servants, rather than work in the
stores. If I had a daughter (she was
childless) she would have been taught
to cook and sew and be of some com
fort to her parents. Some girls, now
adays, are of no more comfort to their
parents than if they did not exist."
Mrs. Sage was a "woman's woman"
and her charities were largely direct
ed to the aid of women and children.
She became widely known as a "lady
bountiful" and was so besieged with
requests for money that she had to
retire finally to seclusion. Begging
letters have been received at her
Fifth Avenue home at a rate of BOO a
day, some of the writers threatening
suicide and others to do her bodily
harm if their petitions wee not heed
ed. So insistent were the hordes
that they sometimes gathered in num
bers about her doors.
Mrs. Sage was a little woman and
extremely self-controlled. She gave,
and gave liberally but was so deter
mined that her giving should be done
wisely that shortly after her hus
band's death she established the Rus
sel Sage Foundation with $10,000,000
for the improvement of social and liv
ing conditions in the United States.
Outside of this
she had made large
gifts including $1,000,000 to the Emma
Willard Seminary, $1,000,000 to Rons-
selaer Polytechnic Institute, $350,000
to the Y. M. and Y. W. C. A., $150,000
