Further advances in linseed oil and

Erastus Young, aged 77, retired
general auditor of the Harriman in
terests, died last night at his home in
Omaha, after an illness of one week.
Mr. Young, who had lived quietly
in Omaha since his retirement in 1910,
was taken with a slight cold on
Wednesday of last week. This seemed
to run the usual course and gave no
cause for apprehension until Sunday
morning, when pneumonia developed.
This disease assumed an acute form
and since Tuesday little hope was en
tertained for his recovery. He is sur
vived by his wife, who was Miss
Margaret Ludlam; his son, David L.
Young, Mrs. R. S. Ege and Mrs. D. P.
Benedict, daughters, all living in
His Active Life.
Erastus Young was born June 11,
1839, in Rockland county, New York.
He was educated at Wiltiston semi
nary, East Hampton, Mass., and spent
the early years of his active life as a
farmer, a school teacher and a book
keeper. In 1870 he entered on his
career as a railroad accountant, start
ing with the New Orleans, Mobile &
Chattanooga road, with offices at New
Orleans. Four years later he went
to the St. Louis & Southwestern as
auditor, and ior four years held that
position. In 1880 he went to the
Santa Fe as general auditor, and in
1881 accepted a similar place with the
New York & New England road,
which he left two years later to be
come general auditor of the Union
Pacific, in which position he remained
until his retirement on January 1,
1910. From January 1, 1902, he was
general auditor for all the Harriman
interests, which then included the
Union Pacific, the Oregon Short Line,
the Oregon Railway & Navigation
company, the Southern Pacific, the
Pacific Mail Steamship company, and
a number of mining, land and water
companies subsidiary to these great
transportation lines. He was also for
some time general auditor of the Chi
cago & Alton railroad. Since 1883
Mr. Young maintained his residence
Prominent as Accountant
He was a member of the American
Associatiot. of Railway Accounting
Officers and served that body one term
as its president. He was a member
of the general committee of twenty
five and the subcommittee of seven
members of this association which
prepared the system of railway ac
counts adopted by the Interstate
Commerce commission, and he also
prepared the classification of accounts
adopted by the commission.
Mr. Young retired from active work
on January 1, 1910, having then
reached the age limit and having
completed the time of service with
the Union Pacific which entitled him
to a place on ihe company's pension
He was a member of the Methodist
church, and once belonged to the
Happy Hollow club, but had not been
active there for several years. He
was of a very retiring nature, but
within his limited circle of intimate
friends was known as a genial com
panion. In his work he was both
exact and exacting, a quality that
commended him to the great captain
of transportation, E. H. Harriman,
who gave him general oversight of
the accounting of all his immense
The Pneumonia Season.
The cold, damp weather of March
seems to be the most favorable for
the pneumonia germ. Now is the
time to be careful. Pneumonia often
results from a cold. The quicker a
cold is gotten rid of the less the dan
ger. As soon as the first indication
of a cold appears take Chamberlain's
Cougli Remedy. As to the value of
this preparation, ask anyone who has
used it. Advertisement
