TTV R. DANIEL KIMBALL I'EAU-
aVeVe- pisi woo aiea recently, ono
declared that "giving away
money is a greater sport than baaebail
and more fun than any otber form of
entertainment" He began giving mon
ey to needy colleges In 1889 and la
sums ranging from $10,000 to $490,000
disposed of more than $&00000. His
last gift, be said, left him compara
tively poor, with an Income sufficient
to keep him from want At the age ot
ninety-one Dr. Pearsons gave up a life
long use of tobacco, making, he said,
a renunciation for conscientious rea
Dr. Pearsons was bora In Bradford,
Vt He begnn practicing medicine In
1842. Going to Illinois In 1857, be
made a fortune buying and selling Il
linois farm lands. He was a Chicago
alderman in 1875. Most of Dr. Pear
sons' gifts were on condition that an
amount equal to bis should be pro
Tided by others. It was his way of
stimulating philanthropy in others.
"None of the rich colleges will get
my money," be often said, "only the
poor ones, the obscure, struggling ones
op In the mountains or out In the
woods, where the boy or girl living out
at nowhere may get an education." -
Dr. Pearsons always bad a good word
for John D. Rockefeller, though be
would not give to the University ot
Chicago because be regarded Its finan
cial interests In Mr. Rockefeller's
bands. He repeatedly sold that the
American people ought "to let up on
Mr. Rockefeller." In October. 1900. be
offered $50,000 to the board of foreign
missions of the Congregational cbarcn

tkIIu mender In a small town In Illi
nois Having nn hour to while nwny

tbe street and, passing a bntternl :nid
neeily looking follow mending umbrel
las, stopped to chat with hliu. The
ulk tin nod on politics, find the old f fl
ow proved to be an ardent Hryanlte.
yulte a crowd collected us the tllscus-
nlon went on, and several times hi the
dllles nnd retorts that pnsaetl lMtween
ttiein Mr. Moore got the Inugli ou tbe
It was a cold, raw day, "and sutMen-
ly," said Mr. Moore, "the thought came
to me, 'Here nui I, well clothed, well
fed, proHperous, making sport out of
thin poor cld derelict for a lot of Idle
bystanders!" And he begun to tu:uk
how he could square himself. Remein
berlng that there was a little rip In his
umbrella, he asked if It could be re
paired. Without a word the man took
It, threaded bis needle and, taking the
few necessary stitches, handed it bHck.
"How much?" asked Moore, knowing
that tbe Job was worth not more than
"Twenty-five cents," replied the mun.
looking him squarely In the eye.
Smilingly Moore went Into his pocket
and handed out the quarter, saying
good humoredly: "You made a mistake,
my man. You could have got 75 cents
out of me as easily at 20."
The umbrella mender silently looked
him over from head to toe, then, shnk
ing his head and turning to the crowd
Impressively, sold, "I've traveled from
New York to San Francisco and from
Mobile to Duluth, and I know a seveu-
ty-flve cent gent when I see him."

"I will not be advised by any man oa

Pearsons a few years ago, "That wo

and grateful that the opportunity bas

"Is there any gratitude In tbe world
Yea, tons of It Why, you ought to
see me among the students of colleges
that I am helping on the way to tbe

days I spend with them full of bappl

could drag a few crusty old million

would get so confoundedly Jealous that
they would tumble over one another In
seeking to win such affection by going
off and helping to carry out my Idea.
"If there Is one thing that might

everlasting swarm of beggars who

to be only misery.

Beat Him to It
In one of the "dry" states a law evad
ing bonlface said to a thirsty guest:
"I don't sell spirits, but I will give
you a glass of prime wblnky, and then
if you want a biscuit 1 will sell it to
you for 25 cents."
The man was given a stiff glass,
drank it with evident appreciation of
Its quality, and the landlord then of
fered him a biscuit
'Well, no, I think not" said the
guest "you sell them too dear. I can
get one at any baker's shop for a cent,'
and he walked away. .

8wift's Joke on Partridge.
Partridge, the almanac maker, who
taught old Moore his business, will be
remembered as the victim of an ex
traordinary Dractlcal Joke played on
him by Dean Swift
Against Partridge's almanac for 1708
the dean published a rival almanac,
predicting Partridge's death on March
2d, about 11 at night of a raging rever.
And on March 30 appeared a pam
phlet giving an account of tbe alma
nac maker's death, with his confession
that be was an impostor. This was
followed by Swlffa "Elegy on the
Death of Mr. Partridge," which so
completed the deception that the Sta
tioners' company struck Partridge off
the rolls and applied for an Injunction
against the publication of almanacs In
Partridge advertised that he "was
sot only alive, but was also alive upon
March 20." But no on Wteved him. '
