In his arudav.t Armstrong says that Daly, who was the agent of the Hoov er & Gamble Co., of Mlamlsburg, O., which Installed the machinery, ap proached him and frankly told him the machinery he had In view was old; that if he would help him put through the deal he would make him a handsome present at least $1,000.

Before anything could be done he sank and died. He went on Friday last to his country place in Fair Haven, Mass., and re turned Monday. Apoplexy was the cause of death. This was a second stroke. Following a seizure in 1907 Mr. Rogers began put ting his affairs in order and he has been out of the stock market entirely for months, li s Interests in all of the corporations with which he had been identified have been placed In other hands during the past year. This 6tep was taken in order to safeguard his properties In the event of sudden death. Henry Haddleston Rogers was the originator of the powerful Standard Oil Co. He was "the man behind." It was In his brain the .dea of a com bination originated, his idea the branching out that brought to the Standard its present throttle hold on the oil industry of the world, his scheming that led the corporation safe ly tnrough the attacks In th courts; it was he who defied the federal gov ernment. But through It all the name of Rog era seldom appeared. With all his abil ity, John D. Rockefeller was really the figurehead.
