The first of the ?'mid-summer night's"

were the order of the evening, and Old

Ices and cakes were served and the
evening was especially enjoyable. Just

Certain murder trials attract too j
much attention. On that topic the
commentators of the hour are in vocif
erous accord. The interest is called
morbid. No other word is ever used
for it; and doubtless morbid it is, al
though the attractions of mystery, pas
sion, and calamity, of strangeness, sin,
and daring, might possibly be defended
in a feeble word or two. The law
knows its business, and leading lawyers
speak sternly of the publicity and
newspaper criticism allowed by Ameri
cans in murder trials. Yellow journals |
take up the cause of any defendant, es
pecially a woman, whether they think
her guilty or not, if they can make
good copy of the sympathetic vein. ?
They forge tales against the prosecu
tion, and in every possible way work
upon the feelings of the jury as well as
of the public. Moreover, when we are
forced to become acquainted with a de
fendant, we naturally do not wish to
have her killed. Criminal law is a
stern necessity at best, and it can
hardly work fairly if it is conducted by
papers which appeal by calculation and
without scruple to the softer emotions
only. By the acquittal of a murderess
the kind of life she led may be made to
seem attractive. Thousands of prosti
tutes may be created by one such epi
sode. Ladies of that world may be en
couraged to blackmail and the reckless I
use of firearms. Many families may be
ruined. Such are the considerations of
the law, and the reasons why it is
deemed unfortunate for the public and
the press to turn judicial investigation
into a sentimental melodrama or ro

THE DISEASE OF WEALTH.
R?ssel Sage Passed his Ninetieth Year
but Does not Abate one jot from
His Stingy Career.
William E. Curtis writes in The Chi
cago Record-Herald of Russell Sage as
Russell Sage is lying hopelessly ill in
his brownstone residence at 632 Fifth
avenue, near the corner of 50th street.
There is nothing the matter with him
except old age and what the doctors
call senile debility. His tough, old
frame is worm out; his mind is weaken
ing, and his feeble shanks refuse to
carry him any longer. Rut he in nearly
ninety years old. Nature is simply as
serting itself. His faculties are infirm,
but his ruling passion is as strong as it
ever was. Although his memory is al
most gone, he never forgets the days
for the meetings of the boards of di
rectors of which he is a member, and al
ways sends his brother-in-law, Mr. Slo
cum, down town to get the ten-dollar
gold pieces to which he is not entitled,
but which are paid as fees to the direc
tors who attend. Mr. Sage is not en
titled to the fee any more than any oth
er absent director, but he demands it
just the same, and his associates are
willing to pay it rather than disturb his
peace of mind. Mr. Sage is a member
of twelve or fifteen corporations. His
fees as a director amount to $50 or $00
a week, and although he has a hundred
millions or more in stocks and bonds
packed away in safe-deposit vaults ami
drawing interest among twenty or thir
ty banks, he grasps at them as though
they were necessary to keep bis dicker
ing light aflame.
He is a director in all of the Could
companies, and up to two or three
months came down town every day
to meet with the boards. He was so fee
ble that a servant had to almost carry
him in, and five minutes after he was
placed in his chair he would fall asleep
from weakness and would not waken
until the meeting was over. Mr. Could
told him it was not necessary for him
to come down for the meetings and
promised to send him a typewritten
copy of the minutes and the attendance
fee if he would remain at home, when
he reluctantly consented to do. The
next day, when the board adjourned,
his brother-in-law, Mr. Slocum, was
waiting in the hall to get the minutes
and the money. He was told that they
would be sent to Mr. Sage by mail. In
the afternoon he returned, saying that
Mr. Sage preferred, that be should
bring the money himself, and he would
not leave until he was given a $10 gold
piece. Every time a meeting of any of
the boards of which Mr. Sage is a mem
ber has been held since, Mr. Slocum
has appeared and remained until he has
gotten the money.
Mr. Sage is not in such a hurry about
the minutes. He is willing to have them
sent by mail; but he is not capable of
reading them or understanding them if
they are read to them. He has lost bis
grasp upon everything except money;
and it is only with the greatest difficulty
that he can be induced to sign papers
which require his signature. He has
always been suspicious of the motives
of every one he had bad business with
even of his own employees Mr. Slo
cum, Mr. Osborn, who has been bis
private secretary for more than forty
years, his physician, Dr. Munn, and
even of his wife. It sometimes takes
the combined influence of these people
to persuade him lo sign a document.
For nearly a year he has had an at
tendant to go around with him. His
family and friends were urging him for
several months before he could be per
suaded to employ one, and even then ho
did not consent to do so until it was
arranged to place the man on the pay
roll of the corporations of which be is a
director, so that he would not be re
quired to pay him wages.
While many of the stories that are
told of Mr. Sage's miserly habit* and
eccentricties are fictitious, none of them
are exaggerations. It would bo almost
impossible for any one to imagine a
man more economical and stingy than
he. Although his income is reckoned at
$5,000 a day, at least, and some people
think it is twice that amount, he has
lived at the rate of $5,000 a year or less
and his personal expenses have not
been a hundred dollars a year. That is
a very liberal estimate. He lias two
suits of clothes; one for week days and
the other for Sunday, and be has worm
them as long as anybody can remem
ber. He has not bou ' a new over
coat for fifteen or t years, and
his hat is quite as ol int. if not
older. A few years a. nt for a
gentleman who had do. a favor,
and, in a confidential Way, said that he
was going to reward him with a "tip"
that he could work for a profit. Then,
to the man's astonishment, Mr. Sago
gave him the address of a store on 7th
avenue when; he could get shoes for
$2 a pair.
To save time, the Western Union
Telegraph Company serves a free lunch
to its operators, and Mr. Sago appeared
every day at a certain hour. A seat
was kept for him at a certain table up
to the last day he came downtown. Me
never paid fare on the elevated rail
road, because he was a director, and
the ticket takers had instructions to let
him go without paying. He invariably
helped himself to newspapers from the
stand at 50th street in the morning
when on his way down town, and did
the same at Rector street when he was
going home in the afternoon. Me has
taken his newspapers for a generation
in the same way, of the same men, and
they have never dared to say a word
about it. He has always compelled the
bootblacks on the elevated stations to
shine his shoes for nothing. At first,
years ago, they used to remonstrate.
He would climb into one of the chairs
and wait until they BOrved him. If they
demanded pay he would threaten to
have them put off the plat form.
The omnbibus drivers and cabmen on
5th avenue point out a crack aero, the
top pane of glass in one of his parlor
windows which, they say, has been there
for twenty-two years. The story goes
that Mrs. Sage negotiated with a gla
zier to replace it with a whole pane for
$12.00. Mr. Sage would not pay more
than $10. The glazier would not yield,
and the deadloek has contiued for al
most a quarter of a century.
He has a quiet little country place
down on Long Island, with a good deal
of lawn, but he docs not keep the turf
shaved down like his neighbors. He
lets the grass grow until it is high
enough to make hay and then sells it
for $3 to a livery stable keeper in the
People who have been associated with
him can tell yarns like ihis by the hour.
Mr. Sage and his wife are members of
the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church.
As long as he was able to get out they
attend service regularly, and he always
put a $5 bill in the plate. He subscribes
$6 and $10 a year to various benevolent
purposes and one occasion he gave $60
to a mission. That burst of generosity
created a great sensation. Some of his
friends did not believe the story. One
of them was so rash as to bet $500 that
it was not true. Mr. Sage declined to
discuss the subject, and the dispute was
referred to the pastor of the church,
who assured the inquirers solemnly that
Mr. Sage hail actually given him $50 for
a certain charity. Whereupon the in
credulous one wanted to bet that the
bill was counterfeit.
Mr. Sage is supposed to be worth
$100,000,000 in stocks and bonds which
are stowed away in the vaults of nine
different safe deposit companies. He
has accounts with twelve banks and al
ways insists upon being paid interest on
his deposits. It is estimated that he
has ten millions loaned out on securities.
His business goes right along notwith
standing his illness, being in charge of
Mr. Osborn, his secretary, and Mr. Slo
cum, his brother-in-law. They are the
only people who know anytning about
Iiis affairs; they are the only people he
trusts at all and he has always been
very suspicious of them. But he had to
For years, as he has grown old, peo
ple have been wondering what will be
come of his money. He has never had
any children and has no relatives except
Mrs. Sage and her brother. She is a
good woman, highly esteemed and be
loved by every one who knows her, and
her life has been a martyrdom. Her
husband has been as stingy to her as he
has been to everybody else and she has
been compelled to save and scrape and
economize like the wife of a mechanic.

The Laurens Drug Company Guarantee
Hyomei Will Cure if Used Now.
The early summer when the weather
becomes warm and settled is the best
time of the whole year to treat catar
rhal troubles with the expectation of
complete and lasting relief.
Everyone who has catarrh of the
head and throat should know how fool
ish it is to try and cure it by drugging
Until recently your physician would
have said that the only Way to cure ca
tarrh would be by a change of climate,
but now with Hyomei you can carry a
health-giving climate in your purse or
vest pocket, and by breaching it a few
mintues four times a day soon cure
Everyone who has catarrh, or even a
tendency to catarrh, should use Hyo
mei now, for the benefit will be gained
twice as quickly and the disease thor
oughly eradicated from the system.
'the complete Hyomei outfit costs
but one dollar, and includes a neat
pocket inhaler, a medicine dropper, and
sufficient Hyomei for several weeks'
treatment. The inhaler lasts a life
time, and ;f more Hyomei is needed ex
tra bottles in be procured for 50 cents.
In Laun * there are scores of well
known peop who have been cured of
catarrh by H >mei. If it does not cure
you, The Lav ms Drug Co., will re

est evidence the can offer as to their
faith in the rem 'y.
