    "Obituary.
    George A. Sackett.
    George A. Sackett was born in Jamaica, L.I., July 20, 1812, consequently was 70 years of age at the time of his death, which occurred at Geneva, Ill., April 1. He was brought up in New York City, and there received a good common-school education. At an early age he went to Sackett's Harbor with his father, for whom the town was named, and when 17 years old started in business on his own account, making some very successful ventures. During the Patriot War on Canada, which gave him an additional start, he became largely interested in vessels, and was one of the first to recognize the importance of Chicago as a grain market. Here he did considerable [business] in buying and shipping to Oswego in his own vessels. In 1854 he removed to Chicago and became engaged in the iron and coal trade. In 1858 he was succeeded in this by Hale & Ayer. He was one of the earliest members of the Board of Trade, and was prominent in its dealings, remaining in the organization until 1870, when he retired from business to his home in Geneva. He was one of the earliest members of Christ R.E. Church, was one its wardens for many years, was in sympathy with the rector, the Rev. C.E.Cheney, and took part in the movement that resulted in the formation of the Reformed Episcopal Church, always maintaining the greatest interest in the new organization. He was of a quiet and reserved disposition, and passed the last years of his life in the quietude and enjoyment of his library and garden. He was sick for three months with cancer of the stomach, and passed peacefully away at the 3 April 1883 last. He leaves a wife and five children to mourn his loss."

    "A Sad Divorce Suit
    —Sad it is when man and wife, who have sailed together for a quarter century over the varying oceans of life, from the isles of youth until almost to peaceful harbors of shadow land find their bark wrecked upon the breakers of discord. Mrs. Martha E. Sackett, of Arrowsmith, has filed a bill for divorce against her husband, Sabina Sackett. In the declaration she relates a story that, if true, is a pitiful commentary upon life, love and matrimony. She says she married him in 1855; both were young and poor, and both worked together and accumulated land and property, until now there lies in his name 240 acres of fine land, valued at $15,000 or more; that in 1884 she was compelled to yield to his repeated cruelty, abuse, neglect, vilification and avarice and leave him, after having been a faithful wife and bearing him six children; that she is now dependent upon her daughter for support, her only asset being an investment of $1,000, which her father gave her, and which is placed in unproductive city lots. Mrs. Sackett says that her husband worked her to death, refused to obtain medical treatment for her when ill, refused to support her, and added vile insult to injury by calling her the most insulting of names implying her lack of wifely virtue. She asks for a divorce and an equitable division of the property which she helped to accumulate."

    "SACKETT'S FATHER REFUSES AID
    Repudiates the Son Who Deserted Him in His Poverty
    Grand Rapids, Mich., Feb. 6
    Hackley Sackett, the silhouette artist arrested in Topeka after eloping with an Elkhart heiress, today wired his father, who lives here, a pathetic appeal for funds to help him out of his scrape. The message was returned to the telegraph office marked "refused." Thirty years ago Sackett senior was one of the best known lecture and concert managers in the country, and he gave his boy a superior education. When he lost both his health and money the boy ignored him, and the broken-down old man came here and began peddling newspapers about the hotels. He is still doing this, and is now worth $12,000 or $15,000. The old man states that his son has a wife and three children in the East. He married a sister of Mrs. Howe, the wife of the Eastern Manager of the American News company, and the deserted family is now living with the Howes in their New York home."

    "FORTUNE IN PAPERS.
    How O. Sackett, of Grand Rapids, Won His Way.
    THRIFT AND INDUSTRY.
    Recollections of Horace Greeley's Trip to Kansas City.
    One Man Who Has Gained a Competence as a Street Merchant.
    One of the familiar figures on the streets of Grand Rapids is Mr. O. Sackett, a man 74 Years old, who sells papers. Nearly everybody in the thriving Michigan city knows the venerable newsdealer. He has had an interesting career. He is worth $15,000, which amount he has saved out of the earnings of his news business. He says:
    I have had an interest in The Inter Ocean since its foundation, as I was acquainted with Frank Palmer, who was connected with the paper in the early days. I have watched with pride its growth to a great newspaper. I lived in Chicago when Joseph Medill was working the old lever press during the days of "Long John" Wentworth. Old residents will remember me as the "Yankee Card Writer" at the Sherman House in 1863. I was the original card-writing professor and spent my summers at Saratoga, Newport, Boston, Philadelphia, and other Eastern cities, and made much money.
    At the close of the war I settled in Kansas City as manager of a lecture bureau in connection with Redpath, of Boston. His bureau sent entertainments to Chicago, and I managed them from Chicago to California. Among my attractions were Horace Greeley, John G. Saxe, Will Carleton, Susan B. Anthony, Artemus Ward, John B. Gough, and others. I was the only agent that Horace Greeley ever lectured for outside of invitations from associations and towns. I learned by the papers that he was to open the St. Louis fair and wrote him, asking for dates in Missouri and Kansas. He replied that inasmuch as he was coming to St. Louis he would give me six dates. His first lecture for me was at Kansas City. After heavy advertising I wrote to learn his price. He replied that he would not make a price, but would leave me to pay him as much as I did others who did not draw any better house than he.
    Anecdote of Horace Greeley.
    I sold the entire house at Kansas City for $1 a seat. I met Mr. Greeley the morning of the lecture at the depot. On the way to town I asked him if he was ever in Kansas City before. He said:
    "Yes; fifteen years ago I came to Wyandotte to see John Brown. There being no livery stable at Wyandotte, they sent to Kansas City for a livery rig for me, but when they found who it was for they refused to let it come, and I had to go to John Brown's in a lumber wagon."
    "What did St. Louis pay you for your two lectures?" I asked.
    "They promised me $100, but have not paid me anything", he said.
    Mr. Greeley would not ask pay of any man. At his death thousands of bills in notes held by him had not been presented for payment. I paid him $150 a night.
    I saw Wild Bill with his revolver put thirteen bullets in the "O" of the I.O.O.F. sign at the top of the building in the market square at Kansas City, the thirteen shots making but six reports. The marks of the bullets may be plainly seen today.
    I am the inventor and hold the only unexpired patent on the beautiful hotel casket now on all first-class hotel counters to hold envelopes, matches, pens, ink, etc. I have had my ups and downs, but have always managed to land on my feet. I came to Grand Rapids in 1879 with $40,000 to manufacture my hotel caskets. I was taken sick after two years and was on my back six years. I lost all my money and began life again with 50 cents. I sell in this small town between 300 and 350 papers daily. I have no news depot, but sell entirely on the street. I am today worth $15,000."

    "Sabina Sackett Is Dead.
    Mr. Sabina Sackett, another of the pioneers of this county, passed away in death Friday night at 10:30 o'clock at his home near Arrowsmlth, aged 80 years. Altho he had been in poor health for some time his final illness was only of two days duration, the end being directly due to a stroke of apoplexy, which he suffered Thursday.
    The decedent was born in Delaware county, O., March 22, 1828 and his boyhood days were passed in that locality. At the age of 23 he came with his parents to Illinois, making the trip in a wagon and settling near Twin Grove, this county. On April 17, 1855 Mr. Sackett was married to Miss Martha Hill and to the union six children were born, four of whom survive, viz: William H., and Effie May, both of Bloomington, James E. and Seth T., of Arrowsmith.
    In December 1865 Mr. Sackett moved to a farm near Arrowsmlth, where he continued to live ever afterwards. He was one of the first in that vicinity of that town to clear and improve his farm and as far as known he was the only old settler that was living on the farm that he originally improved. He is also survived by a brother, Charles of Greenfield, In., and five sisters, Josephine Hayward, Sarah Wills, Lydla Stears, Maris Barney, all of Jasper, Minn., and Katherine Curros of Iowa; also fourteen grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
    Mr. Sackett was an honest, upright man, kind and considerate in his home and of a jovial disposition. It could also be said of him that he was a good citizen. For some time he had felt that his end was approaching and recently in conversation with members of his family he expressed his readiness for the summons.
    The funeral will take place this morning at 11 o'clock st the Christian church In Arrowsmith, Rev. R. Russell officiating. Interment in Greenwood cemetery."
