CHICAGO, June 10. Dr. Daniel K.
Peursons, once u millionaire, Is tudny
living In the HltiBdule SaiitMtluin',
practically u pauper. He Is ninety
one years old and will pass the re
mainder of his life In the sanitarium.
A few years ago Dr. I'earsons re
tired from business with $0,000,000 In
the bunk, He has given It nil nway.
A month ago Dr. Pearsons rounded
out ninety-one years; ho Is still hale
and hearty, and his object in going
to tho snnltnrlum Is to secure the
best or attention, Out of tho millions
he once called his, he bus kept about

"In tests" Ills Millions.
Dr, Pearsons has the love of tho
country, for lib has Invested bis
money wisely. There nro nearly
20,000 young men nnd women who
have been able to porfect themselves
In their studies because of him, nnd
there are countless other thousands
who, through his, benevolence, sing
his praises from one end of the land
to the other.
When Dr. Pearsons was ninety he
sold all his horses nnd carriages and
forced himself to walk live miles n
day, for ho appreciates tho theory of
n sound mind In n sound body.
ills history Is Interesting, To use
his own expression, he started out
"as poor ns Job's turkey." He
earned his first money shoveling
snow In tho little town of Uradford,
Vt. "They call me n Yankee," ho
said. "I tako off my hut nnd bow.
They call mo n Puritan, I tuko off
my hat nnd bow twice."
He entered Dartmouth In 1842 nnd
lived In an nttlc. To pay the rent
he chopped wood, and cooked his own
potatoes and pahuyenkc. With all bis
efforts he was able to remain lu col
lege only a year. Ho then began to
teach school, nnd made up Ms mind
to beconio a physician.
Starts In (o Practice.
Finally he got his medical degree
and started In to practice at Chlcope;,
Mass., just north of Springfield, lu
1847 he was married, and with his
wife went by Blrnp rail to Elgin; III.,
where ho took n wagon for' JnnoB
vllle, Wis. On (ho way a plainsman
asked for n rldo nnd was told to
climb uboard. They reached Helolt,
und there they noticed n building In
the courso of construction. The
ptulnsninn volunteered the informa
tion that "It wus one of them colleges
somo Yankee cranks were putting
up." Dr, Pearsons shook his list In
the plainsman's face,
"I told him," he said, In recounting
the experience, "that I was going to
bo rich, nnd that I would do all I
could do to help tho college the Yan
kee crnnkH were building.' Thut col-
lege wns Helolt College, and the head

After a visit, Dr. uiid Mrs, Penrsons
left Jnncsvllltr and went to farming
In Illinois. This wus about the time
thai the great fore.itH of Michigan
were attracting lumbermen. Dr.
Pearsons had saved $1000, and he In
vested It In pine lands. Then" he sold
soma property for n friend on com
mission In bucIi a speedy manner
that his wlfo told him to stop- prac
ticing medicine and go into the real
estate business. "You have a faculty
for making money," sho suld, "und
I want to Bee you mako It."
"She wanted to see me mako It to
give It nway," snld Or. Pearsons.
Has Hie Jlldus Touch. .
Later he Invested money In Chi
cago. Everything he touched turned
to gold, nnd ns neither he nor his
wlfo had near relatives nor children,
they begun to usk themselves what
they would do with till the money
Hint began to pour In on them.
After n good denl of discussion
they decided they could not use It to
better advantage than to give it nway
to small and struggling colleges.
When ho reached his seventieth year i
the doctor quit business and begun A
to give away systematically all tho
money he had made. Ills wife died
three yenrs ago, und her loss wns a
hitter blow( to hlln, but he found
udded pleasure in 'continuing to glvo,

"I hnve given money to twelve col

that the South knows It has been ,

All of the colleges which Dr. Pear

"I Rcomm'nd-a CoaJ
Doh of BpsnkliK"
ONE evening us daddy was returning home ho overheard mother scold
ing Jack for mocking Evelyn. That put daddy In mind of n storyi
so tho same evening, nftcr telling Jock It was mean to moke fun of
. his sister, ho told the two youngsters about a mischievous echo ot
which he bad once heard. -
"This happened In a smnll town 'In the country." began daddy. "Thil
pcoplo of the town were very proud of an echo In n mountain nenr their town,
,lt really was a wonderful echo, for It repeated llvo or six times anything that
was shouted at It.
"In this town there lived some boys who were fond of playing tricks upon
people. They thought It great fun to go out nt ulgbt and do things that made
trouble for grownup folks. Of course they were well scolded for It, ami some
times they wero severely punished, but1 that did not stop them. Ono day n few
of tho boys got together nnd said, 'Let's have Bome fun with tho old echo.' 'All
right,' sold tho others. 'How shall wo do It?' 'I'll tell you,' said the leader.
And this Is what they did:
"They hid themselves In some bushes near the place of the echo, nnd
whenever any one enrao along to try the echo by shouting at It the boys
.would shout back something different. Thus If'n man would yell Ohl at tiieA,
cho, expecting It to answer back 'Ohl' the boys would shout 'Ah!' all to-tether.'-
Another person colled out 'Ah'.' and tho echo answered Ohr ,
"Of course. the pcoplo were puzzled, so they sent to Washington to ask tho
government to send se.me ono to find out what wns the matter with their echo.
They had come to'bo fond of tho echo, and It grieved, them lo find that Mime,
thins' wns wrqng with It. .They thought tho government In Washington must
have nn echo doctor.
"WJien tho wise uinn enme, first be tried the echo. He found that whatever
f yelled ensue back wrong. 'There's something very strnugu about this,' h
said to himself. 'I'll have to try tho echo from tho other side of the muuiitulu.'
fio. without telling any one what ho wns about to do. he climbed up on tho
pther side of tho mountain und caW upon tho boys Just nB they were answer
ing somo ono who was trying tho echo. 'Ahnl' snld tho wise man. 'Now I
know what Is the matter with the echo.'
"And before tho boys knew whnt he was, about he Jumped "among them.
caught two of them by tho ears and marched them back to the village 'Hero
