the murders and outrages- of Amer-

be lorced to adopt a radical change In
Its policy with regard to Mexico."
With the announcement at the state
department, however, came no author-
itative indication of how far the Amer-
ican government Is preparing to go to
enfoice what lacks only the diplomat-
ic technicalities of an ultimatum.
The text of the American note and
the reply frohi the Mexican govern-
ment which was dnted July 28, were
given out by the state department,
without explanation for the delay in
making them .public. The depart-
ment's statement follows:

Weymouth Kirkland, of counsel for

was held at the home, Shadow Brook.
The body was taken to Pittsburg, the
city where he laid the foundations' for
his wealth, for burial.
Mrs. Carnegie was at her husband’s
bedside in the last hour of his life, but
he did not revive sufficiently to per-
mit of any sign of recognition. Their
daughter, Margaret, who last April
married Ensign Roswell Miller, of
New York, wag notified that it was ap-
parent that the Illness would be fptal,
and she hurried from her home at
Millbrook, N. Y., arriving a few min-
utes after her father had died.
Andrew Carnegie began a race
against time when, in 1901, at the age
of 65, he resolved to give away his
enormous fortune. He held It “dis-
graceful” for a man to keep on gath-
ering idle millions. In the compara-
tively few years which the actuary
could allow him, he would disembar-
rass himself of practically all he had.
No man had ever launched a philan-
thropic campaign of such dimensions.
His was then a fortune of just about
a quarter billion dollars. To give this
stupendous sum away in about half
the time he had taken to gather it,
was a purpose Carnegie had fairly
well fulfilled when death overtook
him. He had distributed about $300,-
000,000. It was giving money away at
the rate of over $20,000,000 a year, or
more than $50,000 a day.
His first big gift was the setting
aside of $4,000,000 to supply pensions
and relief for the Injured and aged
emDloyes of his steel plants.
He aaaea an extra million for the
support of libraries for his workmen,
and took up his library hobby in a
wholesale way by giving $5,200,000 to
New York City for the erection of
sixty-five branch libraries In the me-
tropolis. Another million he gave for
a library in St. Louis.
On libraries alone he spent upwards
of |53,000,000. He gave them to some
two thousand English speaking com-
munities throughout the world.

Fortunes Ever Made In
Yrfwox, Mass,—In his greaf mansion
overlooking a lake in the beautiful
Berkshire#, where he sought seclusion
when bodily infirmity overtook him
and bis mind was saddened by the en-
trance or his country into the world
war; Andrew Carnegie, iron master
.and philanthropist, died.
Although he had' been In feeble
health for more than two years, his
final illness was brief—a matter of
days. A severe cold developed quick-
ly into bronchial pneumonia, the aged
patient lapsed into unconsciousness
, . i and the end came as though it was
last month, and the perpetration of the beginning of a deeper sleep. No
other acts In disregard of American ostentation marked the funeral of the
lives and property, the American era- man, who, when he began eighteen

The Mexican government’s reply,
which is a lengthy one, sets out that
the Carranza government is doing the !
best it can to cope with conditions In i
remote and sparsely settled regions
still affected by the results of the civil
war and suggests that Americans in
those remote places, come into popu-
lated centers, where they can be pro-
tected. Referring to robberies of pay-
masters of oil companies, the Mexican
government declared the oil companies
had declined guards for them either on
the grounds that the presence of the
guards invited attacks by bandits or
that the guards misbehaved. Both as-
sertions, the Mexican government’s
note declared, are unfounded. The
Mexican government, the note further
said, has offered to reimburse the rob-
med persons of moneys lost.

Is destroying the sale of calomel be-

telling him to take off his rubbers or
they would Injure his eyes."
“But they are new 1” exclaimed
Willie. I patiently explained why
that wns nil the more reason why
they would hurt his eyes.
“But, please,” said Willie, in a
pleading voice, “I won’t look at them,"

During the fifth Liberty loan cam-

asked to insert between their articles
some such quotation as "Help Finish

dash. The quotations were put In re-

followed as when an article was head-

"Help Finish the Job."
