Death came peacefully while the mem

chant himself, were prepared for the
end. For days they had been swayed

strength rapidly, was first displaced by
an announcement after the morniug

Field's rest hud been disturbed during
the latter part of the night, and when
morning came it wns found that the
improvement had not been maintained.
From that time until the end the ap
proach of death was steady and irresis

again had fled. At 2 o'clock word
came from the sick room that Marshall
Field was very low and the end was
