Chicago. April IT.?Dr. Daniel Klm
bfi.ll Pearsons, ninety-two years old.
who In recent years gave more than
?S.00P.000 to small colleges, chiefly In
tho Middle West, died early to-day in
a sanitarium at rflnsdalc, a so.b-.irb.
comparative a poor man.
Pneumonia with complications due
lo old ago was the cause. Tor sev?
eral diya he had been sinking, a
patient tn an Institution where he
maintained himself on an Income of
J6.0CH' a year paid him by a college
to which he had contributed $1!.">P,000
?n the condition that ho would bo
given t par cent of that amount for!
the remainder of his life.
It was Dr. Pearsons who declared ]
that "giving away money Is a great?
er sport than baseball, und more fun
than auy other form of entertain?
ment." He began giving money to |
tweedy colleges In 1888, and in Sums,
ranging from $10,000 to $195,000. dls. '
posed of more than $6,000,000. Ills j
last gift, he said, left him compsra- j
tlvely poor with an Income sufficient j
to keep hint from want. His ?loath j
defeated his often expressed expecta?
tion that he would live 100 years. |
Recently he sold his home to go to j
the sanitarium. The \alue of the!
home and an endowment were given
lor a public library to Hlnsdale, HI.,
bis placa of residence
At the age of ninety-one Dr. Pear
eons gave up a lifelong use of to?
bacco, making, he said, a renuncia?
tion for conscientious reasons.
Dr. Pearsons wns born In Bradford,
Vu Ho began practicing medicine In
1S4?. Coming to Illinois in IS57. he
made a for tuna In buying and selling
Illinois farm lands. Ho was a Chicag ?
Alderman In IS";..
His first notable gift was ll^e.ooa to
Belolt Collet,.. Wisconsin. He gave
Uelo' t In all $600,( 00,
Most of i>r. Pearsons'* gifts were on
orvr.dlUcn thu.t an u-tnount equal to his
rhould bo provided by others. It was
Iiis way of Stimulating philanthropy in
"None of Ihn rich colleges will get
my money," he often said, "Only the
poor ones, the obscure, struggling
otiAs, up In the mountains or out in the
woods, where the boy or girl, living
out at nowhere, may get an education."!

Immediately after adjournment
Speaker Byrd made a charactcrtstlcal-1
ly strong and eloquent speech, during
which he was frequently interrupted
by storms of applause. He began by
s?ying that In- would give an account
of h:s stewardship. He sa'd the pub?
lic school system is too f?r from the
people and not sufficiently subject la
their control, and that he voted for
an amendment which gave the people
the r'ghi to elect division superin?

said Missouri had instructed for

Vlrglnin should Instruct for Wilson.
This, he said, is a time of change.
There i- no standing still. The stand?
