DEATH OF F.H.STICKNET ]
DISBURSINO OFFICER OF NAVY 1
DEPARTMENT.
Francis Henry Stickney, disbursing clerk
of the Navy Department, died this morning h
at 2:40 o'clock at the family residence, <07 C
M street, aged seventy-six years. a
The Immediate cause of death was an at- 0
tack of apoplexy. Mr. Stickney was at his *
desk In the department last Friday. He E
complained of feeling Indisposed. At the C
close of the business of the day he pro- *
ceeded to his home. Not feeling any bet- t
ter, he remained at home Saturday. Mr.
Stickney stayed In bed Sunday. His con- }
dition gradually grew worse until the end c
this morning. (

mah, India; Miss Katharine A. Stiekney, b
Miss Rosamond K. Stlckney, Mrs. Louis D. a
Bliss, Frank L,. and Bryan M. Stlckney, all "
of this city, survive the deceased. d
Mr. Stlckney was born at Vassal'boro,
Me., October 10. 1830. After attending
school in his native town he went to Bangor,
Me., where for a time he was em- c
ployed in the banking business. L>ater f,
he came to this city.
Shock to His Friends. s,
The news of the death of Mr. 8tickney n
was somewhat of a shock to his associates w
at the department. Although It was known tJ
he had been In bad health, It was not an- p
C1
tlclp&ted that the end would come 90 sud- t]
denly. Mr. 9tickney vat at th? depart- g
ment for a short time last Friday, and apparently
was no worse In health than he 11
had been for several weeks before. tl
Mr. Stickney was one of the oldest em- ^
ployes In the service of the government. b
It appears from the official records of the n
Navy Department that he was appointed a n
cle>rk in the fourth auditor's office, Treaaury
Department, In the year 1857. After u
three years of service In the Treasury De- w
partment he was transferred In May, 1801.
to the Navy Department as a $1,600 clerk *
in the office of the Secretary. *
In July, 18fl5, he was promoted to an '
SI.800 clerkshin. and Mav 1. 1874. because "
of efficient services, he was again promoted ?,
disbursing: clerk of the Navy Department,
with an annual salary of $2,250. For the "
thirty-two years following he faithfully 5*
discharged the exacting duties of that impprtant
office and handled many million a
dollars of government money with the
strictest integrity and to the satisfaction <
of his superiors as well as to the satlsfac- ?
tion of the employes and outside parties *'
having financial transactions with the de- r
partment. He made his financial settle- w
ments promptly and accurately, and, so far a
as known, left all the accounts of his office n
in good condition.
In accordance with the custom in such a
cases an official examination of Mr. Stick- F
ney's books and accounts will be made in h
a, uay or iwo. as suuii us arir. r>. r. jrtsieia,
chief clerk of the Navy Department, was a
informed of the death of the disbursing P
clerk, he proceeded to his office, and. In J'
company with Mr. Croxall, assistant to the h
disbursing clerk, and Mr. F. L. Stickney, r<
son of the deceased official, gathered up all t!
the books and papers In the office and
locked them up In the office safe, where y
they will remain until the officers of the ?
Treasury Department are prepared to ex- fl
amine them and close the accounts of the e
late disbursing officer.

Fernald said that several days ago some a
small children were nearly run over by a f<
train passing southward at this point and p
that it Is doubtful if the train crew are yet I
aware of the Impending peril of the children.
as no flagman or other person was
on the train at the time, except the regular
engine crew, and as they were In the engine
at the rear of the train he contends _
that it Is more than likely that the ob- p

"Nothing can Induce me to part with my tei

racings of machinery on the wall. "I am ^

Graydon Is sixty years old. He enlisted car
rlth the 7th cavalry when he was fifteen.'

Graydon says that the British have ,,Q,
heated him out of thousands of dollars as
y appropriating three of his most success- pQE
j1 inventions?the dynamite cloth, dynamite
ope and dynamite pellet. He declares that fat
rhlle In England he made the acquaint- 8pe
nee of Lieut. Walter B. Bassett, royal ,jer
avy (retired), who, he charges, made more ge,
fian a million dollars from the "Graydon
musement wheel," built on the plan of the ^in
'errls wheel, which Graydon alleges to ?,

The protestants declared that the street *?c

An attempt was made by the Commlsioners
several years ago to widen this

PRAISES THE AGENT.
President Scovel Says He is the Mainstay
of Life Insurance.
ST. LOUIS. Mo., October 23.?The seventeenth
annual convention of the National
Association of Life Underwriters began
here today. Many questions of vital interest
affecting the insurance business will be
exhaustively discussed during the threeday
session.
A hnnt 9AA r?olrtcro whan
the convention was called to order by Prealdent
Charles W. Scovel of Pittsburg, Pa.
Mr. Scovel spoke of the responsibility
resting on the insurance agent, and said
that he was more than the mere hired man
of the company. He, said Mr. Scovel. is in
much closer dally touch with the friends
and neighbors whom he induced to Insure,
and his sense of personal responsibility to
them is constantly before him. His service
to them Is only begun with writing the application;
it continues year after year in the
collection of premiums, readjustment Of
beneficiaries, making of loans, and so oil,
until It's culmination In helping to make
proofs of claim and turning over the pro
ceeas. At every point ne is tne intermediary
between his policyholders and the
management; at every point It is to his own
Interest to do the best he can for his policyholders.
It is the agent who in fact personifies
the distant management to his policyholders;
It is he in whom they put their
trust.
