OVER TWENTY-FIVE MILLIONS EXPENDED Mrs. Sage Is Donating Liberal ly to Public Purposes and Threatens to Give Away En tire Fortune. New York, June 9. In less than three years, Mrs. Russell Sage has Spent more than $ 25,000,000 for public purposes and the benefit of mankind. The recent investigation abroad of the question of workingmen's insurance, and the establishment of a gigantic employment bureau, calls attention anew to her prolific bounty. It took Russell Sage 50 years to get $63,000,000. This great sum repre sented the pinching and scraping to gether of what amounted to $3,500 a day for the lifetime of the astute finan cier. Gives $25,000 a Day. Mrs. Sage is now giving away the fortune at the rate of $25,000 a day. If the widow continues her charities at the pace she has set, all will be gone In five years. Comparison of the fiancier's power to make money With Mrs. Sage's fac ulty of giving it away, shows that the widow is giving $2 in the same time that it took Mr. Sage to accumulate the proverbial "thirty cents." "Large as Mrs. Russell Sage's for tune is, it hardly could cover the cost of insuring all of the workingmen iu America," said John M. Glenn, secre tary and- director of the $10,000,000 Russell Sage foundation, when asked concerning a rumor that the widow of the great financier contemplated en dowing a great Insurance for Ameri can workingmen. At Heme and Abroad. "But, with funds from the Sage foun dation, we have conducted a careful study of workingmen's insurance at , home and abroad," he added. "This work has been going on for more than a year under the direction" of Dr. Lee K. Frankel, formerly general manager of the United Hebrew Charities, as sisted by Miles M. Dawson, the actu ary. These gentlemen shortly will make their report." Dr. Frangle and Mr. Dawson have visited Germany, France. Belgium, England. They made Inquiry into all forms of workingmen's insurance. The result of their investigation, will be far reaching, and it is regarded as not at all improbable that Mrs. Sage, in co operation with some of the large em . ployers of this country, will subscribe to the Installation of a real working men's Insurance, possibly compulsory on the tollers and under government supervision. ; When Mrs. Sage, after the death of oer husband, ' set about distributing iter wealth, the causes of education land religion and the amelioration of , human misery, appealed most strongly 'to her. To educational institutions she recently has given nearly $5,000, 000; to religious work, something like $2,500,000; to the Sag foundation. $10,000j000, while the remainder has gone to works of a semi-religious and educational -character. Mrs. Sage has tried to place her money where it would do the ' greatest 1 good to the greatest number. ' Some of Her Big Gifts.

TWO TOPICS OF PRESENT IMPORTANCE Two of the most important topics of present conversation are, who will be our next . president, and Root Juice, but Root Juice seems to have the advantage, and why . not? Per sonal health is and should be one of the greatest considerations of life, and as so many local people are prais ing the new remedy. Root Juice, it is not surprising that so many of tho afflicted people of this county are &o eager to talk about It and get all of the information they can in relation to the many remarkable cures it has made and is making. It invariably proves a great and agreeable surprise to weak, nervous, dyspeptic, consti pated people, for after using it for a short while the soothing, healing and tonic properties of the wonderful rem edy removes irritated and sore condi tions from the linings of the stomach, bowels and bladder, heals and strengthens the liver and kidneys to healthy action, resulting in a good appetite, food well digested, bowels regular, good, rich blood, free from rheumatic poison and it soon nour ishes and strengthens the whole ner vous system. The people at the drug store are proud of the wonderful mer its of Root Juice, and gladly tell all Interested of much of the great, good it is doing here. A. G. Luken & Co's drug store. THE SMART DRUMMER. There Was Something Coming to Him, and Ho Got It. "Gentlemen," said the drummer of druggists' sundries as he looked around on the half dozen men who were ask ing him for the latest story, "I believe I have felt about 400 different feelings in ray life, and the balmiest one of all was the feeling that I had something coming to me and would get it if I stayed on the road long enough." "And have you got It?" was asked. "I have. I got it coming into Chi cago. I was very comfortable in my Pullman when a young man came along and told me a pitiful story and wanted me to buy his diamond ring. The game is older than the hills, and I was on in a minute bogus story and bogus diamond; willing to sell me a $200 ring for $30. I asked him where the green spot was in my eye, and while I was pluming myself the man in the other part of the section pulled out three tens and pocketed the ring. Did I look down upon him with pity and contempt? Did I smile? Did I grin? Did I ask him where his guardian was? Oh, yes oh, yes, and he spoke up and claimed that the stones were diamonds and the ring well worth 200 plunks. It nettled me to see the ass so cocksure and to bear him say that of course I was no judge of diamonds, snd I put up $50 that he'd been done for. The conductor held the money, and when we got into town we made for a Jewelry store. We took In four of 'em before I laid down. Same story in each place ring worth $200." "And you lost four $50?" "Slick as slick." "And there was a game In it?" "Of course, you camel. Seller and buyer were confederates, and they probably worked the scheme six days a week. If I'd got ready to buy. some excuse would bavt been made to head me off. Yes, gentlemen. I bad some thing coming to me, and I got it, and I feel relieved."

THE RICHMOND PAJLT-ADIUM ASJ DUN-TELEGRAM, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 9, 1909. HEAR CLOUDBURST DAMPEIISJCIIMQIID Weather Merchant Gets the Wrong Throttle and Then Came the Deluge. IT INJURES FRUIT TREES MANY WERE BLOWN DOWN BY FIERCE ONSLAUGHT STREETS OF THE CITY RESEMBLED MIN IATURE OCEANS. Rain, accompanied by rather high winds about 5 o'clock last evening did considerable damage to shade and fruit trees in this city and vicinity. During the short Interval, the streets were flooded by approximately an inch of rainfall. It is no exaggeration to say that raindrops a half an inch in diameter fell, making the storm re semble a cloudburst for a short time. Many persons were caught on the streets and before they could seek se clusion from the rain by either enter ing a store or going on some veranda, they were wet to the skin. In many places the storm sewers were too small to carry off the water and the streets became flooded, making them Impassable for a time being. Streams Are Normal. The rivers and creeks in this neigh borhood were not raised greatly by the rain. A few shade trees were blown down while nearly every street was covered with small and a few large sized limbs which had been blown down. The rain was so hard that much fruit was knocked from the trees, this be ing especially true of cherries. According to the record at the pumping station, 1.07 inches of rain fell during the day. The greatest amount fell in the afternoon, although the rainfall early yesterday morning was also heavy. IN HIGH ALTITUDES. The Most Common Ways In Which the Heart la Affected. .Dr. I. N. Hall, writing in the Ameri can Journal of the Medical Sciences, says that the dangers to the heart In high altitudes are the same as in other places, but are greatly exaggerated in some directions. The troubles most common and serious, he says, relate to Inflammation of the . heart muscle, hardening of the arteries and dilation of the heart. The principle applied is this: The heart and lungs have an increase of functional work with each added de gree of elevation - and the consequent decrease In atmospheric pressure. To meet the increased demand on the cir culation the heart must enlarge if the usual amount of exercise is taken. It is not unusual for acute dilation of the heart to occur after slight effort on the part of those whose arteries have begun to harden and who long have been accustomed to atmospheric pres sure at the sea level. The trouble with those who suffer in high altitude, the writer declares. Is that they try to do too much at first when they feel In vigorated by the bracing atmosphere. Dr. Ball adds that even an ascent in a railway train may be fatal to those who have but a narrow margin of heart strength, or the slightest exer tion at such a time may produce an gina pectoris. The average case of well compensated valvular disease will do as well at a high altitude as any where else If the patient observes proper precautions. In such a climate he is less susceptible to acute rheuma tism. . A LUCKY SHOT. Exciting Inoident of a Lion Hunt In East Africa. In the Wide World Magazine there Is an exciting account of a lion bunt In British East Africa. The party con sisted of Walter Cooper, Captain H. and his sister. The young lady cap tured four lions, while the men slew five between them. The tenth lion was killed through tts desire to capture a native carrier who, realising that things were becoming too warm for him, had bolted. The following is the account of the misfortune which befell the Hon through his attempt to stay the baste of the native: The lioness, attracted by the sight of the fleeing man, "swerved off snd; denly and made after the fugitive. The man had not more than twenty yards start, and the great brute rap idly overtook him. Miss H. fired again, and we men both fired as well, but we were not near enough to make a good running shot. The wretched man, with a courage born of desperation, turned at the last moment and hit at the lioness with his rifle. The blow fell a bit short, and the enraged brute, snapping at what same nearest, caught the weapon to her aoouth at the muz zle. The pane at which she was trav eling was so great that Hassan was hurled backward, and in falling his finger caught the triggers, letting off both barrels. By the most extraordi nary piece of luck the rifle was point. Ing straight down. the beast's throat at the moment, and down she went, with her head nearly shot away, right on top of him. There is a fellowship smong the vir tues by which one great, generous im pulse stimulates another. GarfieM.

AGONY ENDS TOMORROW About 2,000 pupils of the public schools are anxiously awaiting tomor row noon, when, with the exception of going back to school to either attend graduation exercises or to : get their cards, showing the results of their work' for the spring term, the summer vacation will commence. The last of the final examinations will be held to morrow morning in the graded schools, i jTeachers . also are pleased that vacation is so near after nine months of the strenuous life. t Superintendent T. A. Mott and' the teachers are well satisfied with the re sults of the year's work. No disturb ances of any kind have tended to de tract from the school work. Under the regime of Prof. C. W. Knouff, of the high school, who succeeded Prof. D. R. Ellabarger,. as principal, thi3 school has moved along very smoothly, faculty and student body working to gether in a commendable way. It ' Is believed, because of the conditions, that a larger per cent of the pupil3 will pass than ever before. FATHER HUGO TO BETHE SPEAKER Will Make an Address at Stat- m uary Dedication. Father Hugo, pastor of the Sacred Heart Catholic church of Indianapolis, will deliver the principal address at the dedicatory exercises of the statu ary, "Way of the Cross," at St, An drew's cemetery Sunday afternoon, June 20. Other arrangements for this affair have not been completed, but Father Roell, pastor of St. Andrew's church, expects to have the program ready within a fchort time. The stat uary, which was given by one who does not wish his name revealed, is very beautiful. THE THEATER THEATRICAL CALENDAR. NpW PHILLIPS. All Week High Class Vaudeville. GENNETT THEATER. June 9. "Merchant of Venice." The New Phillips. It is a hard matter to give a good description of the nets at the New Phillips these first three days, for the acts are so different from any ever witnessed in a town of this size that they are about beyond the power of description. The Three Kelcey Sisters and Billy Cummings have nobody "just likje them" or anywhere near them. In eccentric singing and danc ing they are fine and Cummings's pi ano playing is close to that of a mas ter. Round after round j)f applause is greeting them. Gordon and Williams, the Village Jokers, can hang their hats up on any old nail and feel at home. But that doesn't come from having to rough it. It is simply because they under stand human nature so well. They certainly know what Is amusing and the humor which they hand across. the lights sparkles like so much wine. Miss Mabel Star, singing comed ienne, has won a happy home here. Oh no, she is not to be married, but that is no indication that she couldn't be. She certainly has them all in love with her.
