Peacock Plan of" Philanthropy.
Th- New York World tells how A.
I:. Peacock, one of the Pittsburg
group of laritT. steel-made inn 1 1 -millionaires,
has di-eovered a new way
of avoiding sin and disgrace of dying
rich. He is broking up the .friends of
his youth, whose shis fail-l to come
in us well-laden with gold as his own,
and presenting them with consola
tion, prizes in the form of home-
steads of their own selections.
Two cases mentioned are Abraham
Snyder and Charles Holcomb. of
Somerville. N. .1.. who were "boys
together with Peacock, of the pie
thoric iMM-ket-iM-ok. and who have
just picked out two $10,000 resi
dences at their old friends exense
Thev had troth worked hard in their
sturdy davs. one as a storekeeer,
the other as a mail-carrier, and both
had fallen upon the evil days of old
age ami inability to earn.
Millionaire Peacock announces
that intead of giving to public insti
lutions he shall spend his big sur-
tlu in lifting the burdens and glad
deninir the hearts of his old and
worthy but less fortunate friends
And provided they are all worthy,
this is an admirable form of gener
osity and will Im considered by many
more commendable than public gifts.
It may be said, however, that the lat
ter benefit the millionaires, while
private gifts to "old friends" ran only
benefit a few.
