Before he sailed for Europe on Wednes
day. Andrew Carnegie revised a list of h!"i
Rifts. It is the first time that he has con
sented to authorize a statement of what
he has done. Until now. the only lists of
hl sifts that havo been published have
been such as were compiled with more or
less success from the published records.
According to this authoritative list, the
total of his donations is IC7.212.iC3. It is di
vided between the United States, Scotland,
Canada. England. Cuba and Ireland in the
order named. The United States naturally
has th largest share. Scotland, which
comes next in point of benefit, has received
only about one-quarter of what has been
given to the United States and $10,000,000 of
the $13,078,730 that went to Scotland was
Flven in a lump to found a fund providing
ii collet education for those who wish it
but lack the funds.
The onlj other sum that was given by
Mr. Carnegie that can compare in size with
this one sum of $lo.O'X,000 is the 110,000 000
donation for the establishment of a Na
tional University In Washington.
In the past six months that were spent
hero by him he gave away more than $20.
000.O00 or at the rate of $111,000 a day.
If Mr. Carnegie desires that his name
shall become a household word throughout
the country long after he is gone, thu ful
fillment of his wishes seems assured, for
new libraries bearing his name Mil have
been established soon in 3CS cities and
towns In the United States alone.
His gifts are divided Into these sums:
United States. $02,270,173: Scotland, S13.07S,
T30; Canada. JS7CG00. England, $120,000, Cu
ba, $232,000; Ireland. 563,500. miscellaneous
gifts to Great Britain. $230,X)0.
The four largest gifts in the past six
months, with the exception of the two $10,
000.000 donations, were $30.uJ0 to Cooper
Union in New York City. 52W.O0O for library
purposes in Denver, Colo., $173,000 far a
library in Albany, N. Y.. and $1SO.OOO for
the same purpose to Cincinnati.
Mr Carnegie has changed his method of
giving n?tead of continuing to slve away
large sums to single cites, he has adopted
the plan of giving away amounts much
rmallcr In size and thus Increasing the
number of recipients greatly.
Gave ?12,000,000 to City
Before his return from Sklbo Castle, last
October, he gave such big single sums an
$5,200,000 to New York. JLOO.OOO to St. Louis.
$730,Ou0 to Detroit and Jll'wVoo to Pltt"
burg. The result of his complete change
of plnn.is demonstrated by a study of his
gifts to Canada. Before last year "he had
established live libraries in the Dominion.
He had given Montreal $150,000: Ottawa
$100,000, St. John's, Newfoundland. $30,000;
Sydney. Nova Scotia, $13,000. and Winder,
Ontario, $20,000, a total' of $333,000. Since
then he has Increased the former amount
hv $311,300, making a total for Canada of
$376,500, but Instead of dividing it among a
lew cities, h scattered it among twenty
five. The largest of these glftB was $100,
009 to "Winnipeg. Next on the list are Hall
fax, with $73,000. and "Victoria, British
Columbia. Vancouver. British Columbia,
and St- John. New Brunswick, with $50.
000 each. The others are divided into
amounts averaging $13,000, -with three loll
ing below the SlO.OflO mark Yarmouth, Nova
Scotia, with $4,000, Palmcrsion, Ontario,
The change of plan has been carried
nut with the same consistency in the United
States, but on a more elaborate scalt. A
list of ten gifts made public a year ago
includes one of $v).O00 for a pension fund
In Pittsburg for the aged and the disabled
employes of the Carnegie steel mills; an
other of $1.0CO,000 ii an endowment fund
for the Carnegie institutes in Braddock.
Duquesne and Homestead, and others of
$S73.(vJ to Louisville, Kj.. and $730,000 for
a central and branch libraries in Detroit.

the end of each month when he cleans up
his "library slate." During the month Mr.

wnrrTEN' ron the Sunday retublic.
A novel club, the "Juvenile Muslcale
Club." has recently be-n organized at Jcr
seyville. 111., by four of the young misses
of the city, the oldest of whom is S years
The young m!ses are Elizabeth Leach,
daughter of Attorney and Mrs. O. D.
Leach: Dorothv Bull, daughter of Doctor
and Mrs. Henry D. Bull; Marie Collins and
Louise Collins, daughters of Mrs. E. B.
Collins. Their ages arc 7, S. 7, and 5 years
The origin of the club Is as Interesting
as the club Itself. All of the little misses
attend the private school taught by Miss
Juliet Bothwell. Miss Bothwcll is the sec
retary and treasurer of the Monday Mu
ficale Club, Jerseyvllle's leading music or
ganization. During school hours Miss
Bothwell was frpquentl interrupted with
some caller regarding the work of the
club, and the children were always atten
tive listeners to what was said and done.
Finally in their desire to lmmltate the acts
of their teacher as well as their elders,
the children conceived the Idea of forming
a "Junior Musicalc," and. with that pur
pose in mind, met at the home of DorothJ'
Bull, and perfected the plan.
Not content with the organization alone
at the first meeting, the little misses gave
a music programme, consisting of the fol
lowing numbers: "America," Marie Col
lins; "Bose Bud Waltz," Elizabeth Leach;
"French Waltz Song," Dorothy Bull. This
programme proved the extent of their rep
ertoire, and Mrs. Bull was Invited to fur
nish the music for the rest of the pro
gramme. Since the organization several additions
have been made to the membership, and
the little misses are practicing hard on
their music Iesons, with a view to giving
another entertainment In the near future.
QUESTIONS OF ETIQUETTE
I received ft card far "at borne" from "Mr.
and Mrs Blank, the Ilts Blank, from 4 to 7."
The day of the "at hoir" Is the beginning of
the cond year's mourning for a parent; Is It
the riRht thing to attend: if so, the proper dress
for both myself and huscand as it was sent to
both? How many cards to be left, should both
attend, or how many sohtili? be left should I at
tend without my hu-band" Should neither at
tend, how many cards hould be sent and to
whom addrered, and is it absolutetly necessary
to call after, as I have not done so In years?
And should I attend, mu I speak to those re
ceiving on leaving the hcu""e?
A CONSTANT READER-
There Is certainly no impropriety In your
attending a reception or any other enter
tainment after two years of mourning. The
correct dress for you to wear would be a
smart cloth or silk walking dress. Your
husband should wear a Prince Albert or
cutaway coat and striped trousers. You
should leave two of your own cards and
three of your husband's, and should send
the same If you do not go to the reception.
The cards should be inclosed in two en
velopes, one addressed to "Mr. and Mrs.,"
the other addressed "The Misses." It wrould
be better to call after the reception, but
that la not necessary, especially so late In
the season. It would be most discourteous,
