HIS BENEFACTIONS IMMENSE
Peace, Charity and Education Are the
Chief Beneficiaries of the Dead
Lenox, Mass.—Andrew Carnegie,
ironmaster and philanthropist, died in
his great mansion overlooking a lake
in the beautiful Berkshire hills, where
he sought seclusion when bodily in
firmity overtook him and his mind
was saddened by the entrance of hi*
country into the world war.
Although he had been in feeble
health for more than two years, hi*
final illness was brief—a matter of
days. A severe cold developed
quickly into bronchial pneumonia,
the aged patient lapsed into uncon
aciousness and the end came as
though it were but the beginning of
a deeper sleep.
When Mr. Carnegie returned to
hi* summer home las,( spring, it wan
evident to his intimate* that the
once great industrial leader wa* a
broken man and that any slight in
disposition might have a fatal end.
However, the air of the Berkshire*
and the seclusion afforded ni his
beautiful estate appeared to benefit
him and he exhibited occasional
flashes of the old exuberance that had
made him a cheerful companion for
so many years.
Peace, charity and education are
the three institution* that have bene
fited most from the va*t donationa
of Andrew Carnegie. He erected hi*

"Hate Is not characteristic of the
American people, but the Germans
taught us unwillingly how to hate

Advertising Club* luui Warning To
Protsot tb* Public Against Übiqui
tous Stock ftwlndlsrs.
Various ways (or prospective lavee
tors to detect the unscrupulous stock
promoters are contained In a bulletin
reoently Issued by the National Vigi
lance Committee or the Associated
Advertising Clubs of the World. The
bullotln Indicates several unmistaka
ble signs of the "wild cat" stook ped
dleis which owners of War Saving*
Stamps and Liberty Bonds will do well
to consider before eichanglng their
valuable securities for the offering*
of northern docks. The warning to
prospective investors Is as follows:
"So far as w* have been able to as
certain not • single case haa ever been
reported where the promoter* of a l»
Ultimate, worthy tnterpilse have of
fered to take Liberty Bonds In pay
ment for the capital stock of a new
company. We bellevo that the very
offer to take Liberty Bonds should
piompt the bond owner to consult a
banker or legitimate broker as to the
value of the stock that Is offered In
escbange for the bonds. The offer to
exchange Is an earmark which should
serve as a warning.
"Another earmark of the faker Is
his attitude when it Is proposed to
postpone action pending an Investiga
tion. He will usually snoer at the
thought of consulting a banker or
broker of standing, suggesting that,
of course, they would not recommend
the stock because they have stocks of
their own to sell.
"In such a case the prospective in

remember that It is the one who casta
