Noted Belgian Dies!

History: Avid students of the 19th Century Balkans conflicts will probably have missed the news that Adolphe Sax, inventor of the Saxophone, and therefore a Belgian of note (hah!) ,  died 135 years ago. It was a splendid funeral apparently, the Funeral cortege did several laps of the Church before coming in, by the wrong door, and slightly late, and they went through the entire service five times before burying him.
