The article discusses selected properties of the non- and superconducting polycrystalline samples of RuSr_2GdCu_2O_8 and comments on the consequences of introducing insignificant sub-stoichiometry of Ru into the nominal formula. The magneto-resistive and the magnetic characteristics are interpreted in favour of the formation of intrinsically inhomogeneous superconducting phase, which seems stabilized along with the structural modifications enhanced with the modification of starting stoichiometry. The specific heat data reveals the small shift of the temperature of magnetic ordering T_{m}, which may suggest dilution of the magnetic sublattice of the Ru moments. The measurements of the magnetic field dependences of the isothermal magnetocaloric coefficient M_{T} reveal no gain in the system magnetic entropy in a broad range of accessed fields and temperature. Whereas the multi-component character of the compound's magnetsm precludes from concluding on the magnetic ground state, the maximum in M_T (H), which occurs at comparably weak magnetic field for temperatures in a vicinity of T_{m} may reflect dominance of the ferromagnetic type interactions with a constrained correlation range. The literature explored models for the Ru magnetic ordering and also possible phase separation are brought into the discussion.
