Succumbs to Heart Failure Brought on by Complication of Diseases—Fu neral Services to Be Held Wednes day, With Interment at Troy, N. Y. New York, July 23.—Russell Sage died suddenly at his country home, "Cedarcroft," at Lawrence, L. I. The immediate cause of death was heart failure, resulting from a complication of diseases incident to old age. The veteran financier would have celebrat ed his ninetieth birthday on Aug. 4. Mr. Sage had been in exceptionally good health since his arrival at his summer home, about six months ago. At noon he was seized with a sinking spell and collapsed, falling into un consciousness about two hours before his death. There were present at the end Mrs. Sage, her brother, Colonel J. J. Slocum the Rev. Dr. Robert Leetch, Dr. Theodore S. Janeway of New York, Dr. J. Carl Schmuck, a local physician, and Dr. John P. Munn, for many years Mr. Sage's family physician, who was summoned from New York when the first alarming symptoms were manifest. The fu neral services will be held on Wed nesday at the West Presbyterian church, in West Forty-second street, ol which Mr. Sage had been a member for many years. The interment will take place in Troy on Thursday. Mrs. Sage and her brother, Colonel Slocum, are named as the executors of Mr. Sage's will. It is generally believed that Mr. Sage's vast interests will not be se riously affected by his death. Sketch of His Career. Russell Sage, multi-millionaire and nes'tor of American financiers, was born on Aug. 4, 1816, in Verona Oneida county, N. Y., where his pa rents, Elisha and Pendence Sage, members of a little company of pio neers from Connecticut, had halted while on their westward march in quest of a homestead. At the age of twelve years, Russell began his ca« reer as an errand boy in the grocery store of his brother, Henry, in Troy. At the age of twenty-two he establish ed a wholesale grocery of his own in that place. In 1857 the young mer chant had acquired a fortune esti mated at half a million dollars, a vast amount for those days, and deter mined to retire from active business life. He had, however, already be come interested in railroads, his first transaction of this character being a loan to the LaCrosse Railroad com pany, which led to further transac tions, resulting in his acquiring large Interests in the roads now forming ihe Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul sys tem, of which he became vice presi dent. This determined Mr. Sage to devote his future energies to opera tions in Wall street, and in 1863 he opened his first office in New York. About this time he formed an asso ciation with Jay Gould, which contin ued for many years. About 1872 Mr. Sage originated the system of trading in "puts," "calls" and "straddles," In which he continued to deal thereafter on a colossal scale. While he pur chased a seat on the New York Stock exchange in 1874, it is believed that he never appeared on the floor of the exchange. Only once, it is said, did Mr. Sage experience a tremendous reverse, which would have crushed most men, but from which he emerged with courage and confidence unshaken. This was on the memorable day in 1884, when the great failure of Grant & Ward was announced, resulting in the loss to Mr. Sage of about $6,000, 000 on a long line of "puts." At the time of his death, Mr. Sage was an officer and director in twenty five great railway and telegraph cor porations. An incident which startled the whole country occurred in Mr. Sage's office, in the old Arcade building, 71 Broadway, on Dec. 4, 1891. On that day he was visited by Henry P. Nor cross of Boston, a man of unbalanced mind, who demanded an immediate gift of $1,200,000. When the demand was refused Norcross dropped a dyna mite bomb upon the floor, the explo sion of which decapitated Norcross, killed one of the clerks and wrecked the whole office. Mr. Sage was only slightly hurt by the explosion. Mr. Sage was married twice, first in 1841 to Miss Maya Winne, daughter of Moses I. Winne of Troy. His wife died in ftew York city in 1867, and two years later he married Margaret Olivia, daughter of Joseph Slocum of Syracuse. Steamer Runs Down Tug. Vancouver, B. C., July 23.—Nine persons lost their lives by an accident which occurred on Burrard inlet, the harbor of Vancouver. The Chehalis was run down and cut in two by the steel steamer Princess Victoria, leav ing this port for Victoria and Seattle.

The party included the owners of the beds and representa tives of the English syndicate who contemplated purchasing the oyster beds. Feud War In Kentucky.

We know of a number of men who have been utterly indifferent to the practical advantages of tiling as a means of reclaiming wet pieces of land who have had their eyes opened and the lesson brought home by the rapid drying up of soils adjacant to tiling laid with a view to draining water from the family cellar. This much of an object lesson is usually sufficient. One of the men belonging to the class mentioned is this year rais ing a bumper crop of corn on Just such a piece of low land, as these low tracts almost always possess a superabun dant fertility and require but the drain ing off of surplus water to yield boun tifully. ......
