DAVTD BRAND, the old man In I

school with Andrew Carnegie he
would at li( be. an inmate of a London
poorhoose wtijh no other prospect In

gloomy Institution. But tha fact that
he waa acquainted with tha 'multi-millionaire
when both were poor boys haa
been the meana of placing him above
wantln hlsnatlve village, which he
uau nui seen tor st .years.
Brand waa born in Culross, a smalt
place n tha north of Scotland, near
lunfrmllne,"whOBa -Chief claim to 'dis
tinction in these modern days is that
It la the birthplace of Andrew Carnegie.
David attended jhe Dunfermline school,
where Andrew Carnegie obtained in
struction in the three R's. waa a year
older and much bigger than- the boy
who was destined to become one of the
rloheat men In the world. - Occasional'
ly when he, met the little chap on hla
way to the font of juvenile learning
ha uaed to give him a ride "pick
back." They were good friends in those
days, but could .hardly be called chums,
for Carnegie, even then, waa disposed
to take life seriously; and didn't go in
much for gamea. while Brand, big and
strong, - made the most of his oppor
tunities for play. Carnegie left for
America with hla parents when he waa
11. years old. but called on Brand to
bid him good-by before starting. Brand
remembers that . on that occasion he
shared an apple with him. They never
corresponded. Brand, aa the older and
bigger .boy, naturally felt that he was
far more likely to amount to something
In the world than, .the bare-looted canr
nle little laddie.
' Brand prospered fairly well for1 many
years. He established hlmseir in busi
ness In Edinburgh,- and later went to
London, where he made a comfortable
1 1 hood until, according to hla alnry.
he waa swindled out of his business.
He waa too old jthe to, make, a fresh
start and two years sgo had recourse
to that test refuge of the poverty
stricken the poorhouse. Of oourse, long
before this he had heard of the vaat
fortune made by the little shaver with
whom he had gone to school in Dun
fermline. But It never occurred to him
to appeal - to Andrew Carnegie for aa
alstance. Jle had too much Scotch pride
A London Journalist happened to run
across him In the poorhouse and. noting
that ii waa a man who had evidently
seen better times, engaged him In con
versation. In telling his story. Brand
casually . mentioned his boyhood ac
quaintance wttb Andrew Carnegie.
Why doh t you write to Mr. car-
negle and ask him to do something for
youf" asked the Journalist.- "
No; I couldn't do that," repuea
Brand; "he waa a nice little chap when
I knew him, but like as not be haa for
gotten all about me, and anyhow, .1
have no claim on him."
The Journalist wrote to Mr. Carnegie
at Sklbo castle, putting the case before
him. It elicited a prompt response
from Mr. Carnegie's- secretary, asking
additional particulars, which would en
able Mr. Carnegie to Identify Brand, as
hla recollections of the companlona of
bla early boyhood bad become some
what obscure in the course of a buay
and atrenuous Ufa. Also, he asked what
aort of help would be moat acceptable
to the old man. - When thia question
waa put 'to Brand ha answered: "I
think If I waa aupplled with a email
plot of land in my native place I could
make a living.
The Journalist wrote another letter
to Mr. Carnegie, telling him of the old
man's Idea and supplying tha additional
Information. Mr. Carnegie . promptly
answered the letter himself. .
'I have no doubt," he wrote, "that
what Mr. Brand aays about hla early
boyhood Is absolutely correct in svery
An .old man of 70 cannot be
to cultivate land. ' He had
better be considered one of mv nan
