Youngest Son of One cf Lyoas's Prominent Pioneers Did Valuable Work a a Civil Engineer and Surveyor Wayne. Augustus M. Leach, a prominent retired business man of Lyons, died unex-pecftedly'Saturday morning at the advanced ago of 75 years. lie had been in impaired health for a long time, the result of -ld age and an affection of the heart, but his condition last week had shown nothing to differentiate it from his general health for several months. Friday he took his usual drive and retired at 'the accustomed hour with no sign of the approaching end. He passed away between midnight and 1 o'clock so Quietly and peacefully that knowledge of the fact did not come to the members of the family until they entered his' room to awaken him for breakfast Saturday jnorning, Mr. Leach was the youngest of ten children born to the late Jacob Leach, one of the most prominent and progressive of the pioneer settlers of Lyons. Jacob Leach went 4o Lyons in 1809 from Litchfield, Conn., and in the course of an active career devoted to the development of the section, constructed and operated the first grist mill in Lyons, the first brewery and in 1S12 one of the first general stores. Augustus M. Leach was born November 1, 1S25. He attained a preliminary education in the Lyons union school and a collegiate education at Hobart College from which he graduated with the class of '48. He selected as his profession that of civil engineer for which the enlargement of the eannls and railroad construction offered abundant opportunity. Soon after his graduation from college he obtained a position under the state engineer and surveyor and he showed so much adaptability for the work that in the early fifties he was placed in charge of the engineering work on the western section of the canal, having under his supervision a section extending from Syracuse to Buffalo. During his period he invented and drafted plans for a drop gate for locks that were accepted by the state and have continued in use to the present time. At ithe conclusion of his work on the Erie he surveyed the route for the Genesee Yalle canal from Rochester to Olean under the direction o Van Rensselaer Richmond, of Lyons, who was then state engineer and surveyor. Just before the outbreak of the Civil war Mr. Leach secured an opportunity to engage in the milling business, a pursuit which his father had been the first to fol-Jow in Lyons and in which he himself had had training under his father. The business was located is Brooklyn and was conduct od under th firm name of Leach, Smkh & Jewell. In a few years Mr. Leach bought out his partners and then for fifteen years conducted it alone under the name cf the Williamsburg Mills. It was the largest establishment of its kind in the city and amassed for its owner a fortune on which he was well able to retire from business in 1875. He then returned to Lyon and on the spacious Leach grounds on Cherry street, erected a residence (that is on of the costliest, the most attractive and the finest fitted in the county. There he had since resided, enjoying a well earned leisure among the comforts of home life and the pleasures he always took from, literary study and reading. He was a man of refined mind and broad culture and his library and art collection was one of the largest and best elected In the vicinity. He never embarked in business after his retirement in 1875 and never cared to enter public life. Apart' from his lkterary study he took no active interest in matters away from his home village, but in affairs of concern to that community he was always ready to give the advantages of the experience of his successful business career and of his literary accomplishments. In this way he served as president of the village and for several years as school trustee. He was also deeply interested in the affairs of the Presbyterian Church of which he was an elder for many years. In June, 1855, Mr. Leach, married Mary Jane Smith, of Lima. She died in 18G8, and in 1874 Mr. Leach was married to Miss Emma Jerome Richards, of Norwich, Connecticut, who survives. Other surviving relatives are four sons: Frank Leach, a lawyer of Kansas City, Albert Leach, a physician of Mt. Morris, and Frederick and Arthur Leach, of Lyons, and two 1 daughters, Miso Minnie Leach and Mrs. Siseon, of Lyons. LAID UP FOR A TIME. Funeral of John Phillips, .The funeral of John L.

They have been living in a house on the Kanona road op posite the' Soldiers Home, in the vicinity where a number of low dives are located. Saturday evening Police Justice French was routed out of bed at his boarding house and hurried to his court room, where he listened to the story of disorderly ocn- duct on the part of the inmates of the Hartnett house and the indecent and vile language used by them. Threatening Blaze. ' What might have resulted in a disastrous fire was dfceovered just in the nick of time at the Bath Soldiers' Home about 9 o'clock Saturday evening, when a blaze was discovered in the basement of the kitchen of the main dining room. It was said yester day that an accumulation of oily rags in a barrel in the cellar had become ignited, either by spontaneous combustion or by somebody throwing a lighted cigar or emptying the ashes of their pipe in the barrel.

He was 61 years of age. Active preparations are being made for the Livingston county picnic, which will nbe held at Long Point, Conesus lake. August 2Uth. This day is intended as a holiday for all Livingston county people and they take advantage of the day and come in unbounded numbers. It may be likened to Pioneer day at Silver Lake, when all people from the surrounding county come from the different walks of life to enjoy a day of recreation. Indeed, so fast has the number present at the successive Livingston county picnics grown that, if the number present this year has increased proportionately over lost year as it has in previous years, there will be more people on Long Point on this day than has ever assembled there. . The attendance has been as - follows: 18WJ, 3,000; 181)7, 5,000; 1S8, 7,000; 1SU9, 10,000; 1900, 15,000. In fact, this year there are so many attractions which will prove to be drawing cards that the good people of old Livingston cannot resist the temptation .to attend this year's picnic above all others. A. large tent will bo pitched on the green, Jn which the literary and musical pro gramme of the day will be rendered. The Geneseo male' quartette, consisting of Messrs. Niles, Howell, Hawley and Be- mus, win be an attendance, miss ZNeva Fenno, soprano soloist of the Madison Ave nue Church, of New lork city, wall sing and the Citizens' Band, cf Mt. Morris, and the Citizens Band, of Dansville, will be present. Tha citizens of these two towns have contributed liberally towards defray ing the expenses of the bands, as also has tho village of Geneseo, the citizens of whom have given just tlrree times the amount that was contributed last year. One of the potent attractions of the day will be the athletic contests, in all eveuta of which there are liberal prizes awaiting the winners. The committee in charge of the sports Is: J. Herbert Wilson, of the Rochester Y. M. C. A.; E. W. Horton and Arthur I. Strang, of Geneseo. The order of events is as fol- lows: One hundred yard swim, diving for form, rowing race, 100-yard dash Aot men. 100-yaTd dash for boys, CO-yard dash for girls, 50-yard dash for married women. three-legged, race, banana race, running broad jump, potato race, melon race, shoe race, running high jump, putting the shot. fat men's race. Thus there are attractions for the thin man and the fat mnn, the boys and girls, the married women and those whose capacity in the masticating line is not limited. " Therefore the day appeals to all classes and it is hoped that tha Livingston county picnic of 1901 will be a banner day in the history of that county. Contribution will b taken at the gates as usual. PETER GEIGER DEAD. The Taspberry croo is now being mar keted, and the importance of this crop in central and southern Ontario county is not fnlly appreciated in the consideration of the important crops of the section. During the past week the price of the dried fruit jumped up three cents per pound, and growers have been rushing their prod uct to market. The price paid on Satur day was twenty-one cents per pound.

Yesterday he received a check for more than $400, the earnings of the two acres. Buyers estimate that the crop this year in the berry region of the county is worth 5200,000.

TTwantu !t-n"kI,1,; before use Satin-Skin Cream jrowaer, c. Hiram M. Yale, of Albion, a vocal in structor by profession, has received recently from relatives a fine solid mahogany pipe organ six feet in height and which is over 100 years old and been handed down from his grandfather to his father, Joel Hiram Yale, who was an organist in a church in New Haven, Conn., in an early day. The incasement is plain, rich and highly polished, the grain of the wood beautiful. The keys have been used so much that the center or middle octave keys are deeply rutted and one worn quite through. Mr. xals inherits his musical ability from his father and grandfather and tho history of his ancestors is an ex ceedingly interesting one. The first descendants of the name in this country were the three children of David Yale and Anna Morton Yale, the latter a daughter of Bishop Morton, of London fame. David died, and his widow mar ried Edwin Hopkins, of London, and they, with Mrs. Hopkins's children, sailed for America in the Hector. So it was David, Anna and Thomas Yale from whom the hundreds and hundreds of that name in this country have descended. They landed in Boston in 1037 and in 1638 went to Hartford, Conn. The name of Yale is of WelFh derivation and was originally spelled Yall, or Yell. The estate of the family was at Wrexham, Denbigshire, Wales. Mr. Hopkins became governor of Connecticut and in other ways prominent.
