When Andrew was fourteen years of
age his father died, throwing upon the
boy the responsibility of providing for
his mother and younger brother Thomas,
with the result that he applied himself
still more closely to his studies. His
efforts were rewarded by promotion to
an operator's place with a salary of
$25 per month, nnd his foresight in
taking up this little-known method of
receiving and sending messages won for
him the distinction of being the third
man on earth who could read the Morse
signals by sound.
At Ulg timc Carnegie came into con-
tact with Colonel Thomas A. Scott,
then division superintendent of the
Pennsylvania Itnilroad. Colonel Scott,
because of Carnegie's efficiency in teleg
raphy, took the lad inti his office nnd
made him n railroad telegraph operator
Carnegie, quick to grasp every oppor
tunity for ndvnncing his employer's in
terests, bold and decisive in judgment,
and with u good grasp on the routine
of train dispatching, found opportunity
to demonstrate his ability to such good
purpose thnt the colonel placed him
among his picked men, nnd bhovved a
marked interest in the lad. In fact,
Colonel Scott's interest was nich that
he induced Carnegie to make his fust
investment. He did more; he not only
induced him to buy ten shares of Adams
Express Company stock for S00O, but
he helped Mm to find the $G0O.
Colonel Scott now selected him for
his secretary, nnd it wns while per
forming the duties of this position thnt
he met T. T. Woodruff, the sleeping
rar inventor. Realizing the enormous
advantage of such n device, Carnegie
took the model to the colonel and talked
of its merits to such good purnoso thnt
j Scott became interested and induced the
I Pennsylvania to give the car a trial. A
company wns formed nnd Carnegie's in
terest in the Invention and inventor
wns rewarded with a few shares of
Superintended Military Railroads
The friendship between Colonel Scott
and young Cnrnegie grew stronger, uml
when Scott became assistant secretary
of war, it was his former secretary who
was asked to take charge of the military
railroads and telegraphs of the Union
forces during the rebellion, Carnegie
accepted the position, but, after a short
acquaintance with his new duties,
elected to t,o back to railroading
The man had not yet struck his true
vocation. That came presently, when
hi is attention was called to the wooden
bridges in use at that time.' The Penn
sylvnnla Railroad was experimenting
with a cast-Iron bridge. Young Car
negle he was still under twenty five
grnsped the situation at a glance. The
day of wooden bridges wns past un
Iron structure must supersede it. Sonic
men might have stoppfd there. Carnegie
did not ; he went out and formed a com
pany to build Iron bridges.
. He had to raiso ? 1260, but he had the
confidence of a PlttiSurgh banker, itxjj
this proved nn easy matter. So the
Keystone llridge Works, Carnegie's
first Industrial enterprise, came Into
From thla time on the name of An
drew Carnegie was closely identified
with the nstonlslilng development of
the iron nnd steel industry of this coun
try. The Keystone Company built the
first great bridge over the Ohio river,
land the I'nion Iron Mills appeared n
few j ears later as n natural outgrowth
I of this Industry.
Carnegie's (umon in selecting effi
'ciont business associates proved one of
Ibis best atscts. It was this following
of a man of financial genius that
brought the iron master the greatest
I returns.
Oil began to flow in Pennsylvania,
and Carnegie, with his usual foresight,
! bought several farms in the oil region,
in which petroleum wns later discov
ered. His financial gains on these ven
tures Amounted to nbout $100,000.
I In 1SUS Mr. Carnegie went to Eng
land to tell steel for Colonel Scott. The
Pessemer process for making steel rnlls
had been lately perfected. The Eng
lish railways were replacing their Iron
rails with stool ones as rapidly as pos
sible. The I'nglish manufacturers were
i beginning to whisper to each other that
they had a firm grip upon the steel In
dustry of the world. Young Carnegie,
In Id's capacity of bond salesman, had
I occasion to meet many of these men
.and become, in some measure, ae
quainted with the advantages of the
new process. With his ever-present
'sense of moneymaklng. the young
I Scotchman readily understood the ad
Uantrfges of the new process and made
himself the master of it.
Founded Steel Works
He went hack to Pittsburgh nnd be
fore the Fnglish were well aware of his
existi nco he had laid the foundation of
the steel works which have finally
beaten them at their own game. Car
negie, who was now in easy circum
stances, bethought himself of marriage,
and in 1S87 took Miss Louisa Whitfield,
of Ne)v York, for his wife.
Ills imanoini standing irom men on
progressed by leapt and bounds. He
bought up his most formidable rival,
tlio Homestead Works; then the Lucy
Furnaces. In INKS he owned soNen dis
tinct steel nnd iron works, nil within
street car distance of the heart of Pitts
burgh. These ho amalgamated into the
Carnegie Steel Coinpnny, which inter
became the principal nssct of the 1'nitcd
States Steel Corporation a trust whose
influence reaches round the world nnd
is probably the greatest organization of
industrial enterprise that the world has
evei witnessed.
Mr. Carnegie, with a fortune esti
mated at various figures up to $2S0,
000,000 and witli nn organization whose
sjstem admitted of its perfect manipu
lation under the direction pf n coterie
of financiers, retired from nctive par-
tlclpntlon In the nffalrs of the flnonclnl
world to devote himself to his hobbles.
He bought Sklbo Castle in Scotland,
a building 700 years old, first built by
a bishop, and remodeled the grounds
nnd building to suit his fancy. He spent
much of his time upon the golf links or
In fishing from the banks of the neigh
boring streams, dressing nlvvnjs in the
Scottish Highland costume.
Music, art nnd literature claimed n
generous slice of his spare time, and he
took great care to (It up his American
home nt 2 Fast Ninety -first street, New
York city, according to the dictates of
his now highly developed artistic fancy.
Mr. Carnegie, from childhood, had a
fondness for books which seemed to In
crease In proportion to his jcars. This
love of letters manifested itself in sev
eral interesting books from his pen, the
most widely read of which is his famous
"Triumphant Deniocrncy." In his less
serious vein nre his "Notes of a Tour
Itound the World," "Our Coaching
Trip" and "American Four-in-hand In
The Carnegie Libraries
In all'probability the mightiest con
tribution to American progress and to
the cause of civilization in general has
been the carrying out of his desire to
place within the reach of all who had
such inclination the menns by which
they might nttnin such knowledge us
might most benefit them. In his youth
he had but meager opportunity to reap
the benefit to bo derived from good
reading, and he wns determined, nftcr
he had gnjnod his enormous, wealth,
thnt a part of it should be spent in the
establishment of libraries. He began
his work in his adopted city, and ex- !
ponded more thnn $,'(00,000 in supplying
Pittsburgh with n library such as had,
at thnt time, few equals In this coun
try. His charities have been 'broad ever
since lie ainnssed a fortune which ho
kuew fnr overreached his personal
needs. He did not confine his gifts or
philanthropic works to the country of
Ills adoption. While it may be said
that libraries arc his "hobby," he sub
scribed inrgely to churches, parks, or
ganizations nnd institutions where the
benefit hns been far reaching.

When he sold out to the t'nlted-Stntes

Carnegie often laid the building nf
his great fortune to the fact thnt he
was able to pick out cleverer men thnn
himself to work for hlm There Is no
doubt, however, thnt the knowledge of
railroading and his acquaintance nnd
friendship with railroad men enabled
him to obtain better freight rates thnn
his competitors.
While having absolute control of the
grentest coal and iron producing mines
nnd the greatest steel and iron factories
of the Fulled States, Carnegie did not
overlook the necessity for having n
strong hand on the boards of directors
of the railroads tapping the districts
where were located his mines nnd fac

The 'ironmaster" was always pro
fuse in advice to young men. Nothing
gave him greater personnl pleasure than
to select some bright young man nnd
boost him well up the ladder on the wny
to success. He brought one promising
young man in Pittsburgh from behind
n counter in Dunfermline and trained
him in the iron and steel business.
This young man Inter became one of
his partners, with nn annual inroine of
more thnn $2."0,000.
Speaking of his partners, Carnegie
once said :
"If I had to lose nil the capital I had
in the world, or lose my partners, I
would let nil my capital go, and start
again without n dollar, but with the
organization intact."
Advising joung men on how to nttnin
finnucial success, Carnegie snld, "Start
poor, lean on nobody, assume respon
sibility and be nmbitious."
Tremendous Itcnefnctions
Mr. Carnegie gave libraries to many
towns and cities in the United States
nnd Great Itritain, nnd large sums in
other benefactions, including $10,000,
