CARNEGIE AND LIBRARIES. He Has Chosen as a Special Field the Advancement of l hose Who Desire to Learn. Andrew Carnegierecently madei * statement explaining why he feels bo much interest in libraries and why he is devoting millions to the establishment of fret* libra ries that may be at all times ao nessible to aspiring young men eager for knowledge. He says: "When 1 was a working boy in Pittsburg. Colonel Anderson, of Alleghany?a name 1 can never speak without feeliuirs of devo tional gra tit 11 le?opened his little library of four hundred books to boys. Every Saturday afternoon he was in attendanceat his house to exchange books. No one but he who has felt it can ever know the intense longing with which the arrival of Saturday was awaited, that a new book might be had. My brother and Air. Phipps, who have been my prin cipal business partners through life, shared witn me Colonel An derson's generosity, and it was when reveling in the treasures which he opened to us that 1 resolved, if ever wealth catne to sie, that it should be used to es tablish free libraries, that other poor boys might receive oppor tunities similar to those for which we were indebted to that noble man." This explanation is creditable alike to the heart and head of the millionaire. He has been suc cessful in business far beyond the wildest dreams of his boyhood, but he has not forgotten lii:t ?arly ambition to place the means of acquiring knowledge within the reach of other poor and struggling young men. No doubt lie built many castles in the air in those far away days of his poverty, but now lie finds himself about to found his nasties on solid ground. Here after thousands of men and women will rise up to bless his memory for having placed within their hands the keys to tin* t reas ure house of knowledge. i arncgie iia i very iinuwi op portunities for obtaining an euu cation in his boyhood, but he made diligent use of the means J within his reach, and he became not only an uncommonly success- j fill business man but a scholar of no mean attainments and a vig orous and entertaining writer. His example goes far towards proving the truth of the old sav ing, that where there is a will there is a way. He might have frittered away his spare moments in idle sport or dissipation, as so many young 1 men of fine natural endowments! have done, but he utilized his in tervals of leisure by improving) his mind and storing his head! with useful knowledge. Now he is setting an example to other millionaires which c annot fail to i stimulate them to employ at i least a portion of their wealth i for the public good. He has j chosen for his special field the i establishment of libraries, be cause he knows from |H>rsonal experience that when a man has i mastered the art of reading and has access to books he can im prove himself in any branch of science to an unlimited degree though he may never have hail the ail vantage of college training, i There are many other directions i in which wealth may be employed i for the public good, such as the i endowment of institutions of i learning or of hospitals or the 1 erection of homes for the aged or ] for orphans, or schools for the i defective classes, or a hundred I other ways that will alleviate i suffering and bring untold bless- < ings to humanity. i The privilege of bestowing ben- 1 efactions on so grand a scale < comes to comparatively few, but even men of moderate wealth can do something on the same line, and if all men of moderate wealth would do what is in their power i the world would oe infinitely l>et- t ter through their beneficence? ' Lynchburg News. t Caugbt A Dreadtui Cold. j Marion Kooke, manager for T. t M. Thompson, a large importer 1 of fine millinery at l(>.r?8 Mil- i waukee Ayenue, Chicago, says: i "During the late severe weather i I caught a dreadful cold which ' kept me awake at night and made ? me unfit to at tend my work dur- 1 ing the day. One of my milliners < was taking Chamberlain's Cough Remedy for a severe cold at that i time, which seemed to relieve her eo quickly that 1 bought some ( for myself. It acted like magic and began to improve at once. 1 I am now entirely well aqd feel very pleased to acknowledge its i merits.

Tatischeff, Russian financial agent in England, was interview ed yesterday by a newspaper rep resentative <>11 the Manchurian question. He pointed out that he had nothing whatever to do with its political aspect; ull he could deal with was t tie economic side. To an inquiry as to what necessitated Russian entering into a treaty with China with resjieet to Manchuria, he replied: "Russia has vast interests in Manchuria, greater than any other power. She has spent something like ?50,000,000 (#250,000,000) 011 the greatest of enterprises in modern or an cient times?the Siberian Railway ?and not by any means a small proportion of that has been ex pended in that part of the line which is laid down in Manchuria. One of the most important por tions of that great railroad is the Manchurian section. It gives us the outlet into the sea which is necessary to the whole under taking?I mean the Port Arthur outlet. "Surely, therefore, it is only natural that Russia should take ull possible and necessary pre cautions to protect 1 he property and the money of her people. This is all she desires to do. Russia has stated in as clear a manner as possible that she has no idea of annexing Manchuria."?Lon don Telegraph, April 1. The Best Blood Purifier. The blood is constantly being purified by the lungs, liver and kidneys, keep these organs in a healthy condition and the bowels regular and you will have no need of a bloo 1 purifier. For this pur pose then* is nothing equal to Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets, one dose of them will do you more good than a dollar bottle of the best blood purifier. Price 25 cents. Sam ples free at Hood liros.'s drug ston*. Universities and Labor. There are in this country 44 universities or colleges which con tain more than 1000 students each. Fourteen ot these institu tions have more than 2000 stu dents each, and in each of six leading universities there are more than .4000 students. These six are: Harvard 4288, universi ty of Michigan 3700, Minnesota 3410, Georgia 3205, Chicago 3183, and California, 3025. There probably are over 100,0(H) students in the various universi ties and colleges of America at present , and the whole number of persons who are lieing educated m the schools and colleges com bined is given as 10,738,323. 4 he Chicago Kecord-Herald nays this general tendency towards educa tion means one thing?labor in this country must be dignified socially. It is going to be linpos- ? sible for all the boys and voung men who are now in the schools and colleges to get into profes sions. Many of them will have to work with their hands. Man- 1 ual labor will have to be done < even after everybody is educated. ' _ i He Kept His Leg. 1 Twelve years ago J. W. Sulli van, of Ha'rtford ,Conn.. scratched I his leg with a rusty wire.

The depopulation of India h rough famine and cholera is resuming alarming proportions. ' The latest advices from Simla tav the census returns of the cen- i ral provinces show a decrease of iver 1,000,000 since 1891, when 1 in increase of 1,500,000 might nave been expected. It is esti mated that 5,000,000 have died i n India since 1806 from causes i directly due to the famine. In western India things are even worse. The Oodeypoor state re- ' turns show a decrease of 840,000, ' or 45 per cent, of the population; the state of Bhopoul shows a de- J rrease of 808,000; the district of 1 Banda shows a decrease of 124,- < BOO, and so on; in Bombay city the population will have dimin ished by 50,000. The localities which escaped the plague show a i satisfactory, though inoompen- < Rating, increase?tor instance, i Madras, which has gained 8 per i jent over 1891.?Springfield Re publican. 1 Points from a New Boarder. When the new boarder went into the dining-room and eat down there wan only one other person at the table, sa.vs the Chicago Times-Herald. The new boarder had a kind heart and thought he would be affable. "I s'pose you've boarded here for some time?" he said to the other man. "Yes. Quite awhile." "How is it? Any good?" "Yes, pretty fair. I have no complaint to make." "Landlady treat you decent?" "Well, perhaps I ought to" . And then he hesitated. "Oh, never mind, old man," said the new boarder. "That's all right. I'm- on. but say, mebbv you never tried chucking her under thechinonce in awhile. That's the way to get on wit h 'em. I never had a landlady that didn't treat me A1 yet. It's all in the way you handle 'em. Call 'em 'sister' and give 'em soft, oozy talk about their looks. That's tiie way to fetch 'em. I'll bet you 1 can live here a month right now without bein' asked for a cent. Watch me nudge her when she comes in. before this time to-morrow she'll be tellin' me her family history.
