He who would sow discord among the three is an enemy ill quot know Itiat i have done my duty in retiring from business when an Opportunity presented itself and yet As i write my heart is full. I have enjoyed so much my connection with workmen foremen clerks superintendents partners and All other classes that it is a great wrench indeed to say Farewell. Happily there is no real Farewell in one sense because although no longer an employer i am still and always must be a Friend deeply interested in the happiness All whom it has been my Good Fortune to know and work in sympathy with for so Many Happy years. Always truly yours. Quot Andrew retirement. A letter from . Carnegie announcing his retirement from business is also made Public As follows quot new York March 12. Quot to the Good people Pitts Drga an Opportunity to retire from business came to me unsought which i considered it my duty to accept. My resolve was made in South to retire before old age. From what i have seen around me i cannot doubt the Wisdom this course although the change is great even serious and Seldom brings the happiness expected. But this is so because so Many having abundance to retire have so Little to retire to. The fathers in Olden Days taught that a Man should have time before the erd his career for the making his soul i have always Felt that old age should be spent not As the scotch say in making Mickle Mair but in making a Good use what has been acquired and i Hope my friends in Pittsburg will approve my action in retiring while still in full health and vigor and i can expect Many years for usefulness in Fields which have other than personal Aims. The pain change and separation from business associations and employees is indeed keen associates Are at once the Best partners and the Best friends who Are not Only the Best workmen but the most self respecting body men which the world has to show. Of this i am Well assured and very proud. But the separation even from a Point View is not absolute. Since my capital remains in Pittsburg in before and indeed i am now interested in More Mills there than Ever and depend upon Pittsburg As hitherto for my time for Good work. Quot i shall have More time now to devote to the Institute and to the technical school which Are in the higher Domain Pittsburg s life and these i have Long seen to be my chief work the Field in a hich i can do the greatest because the highest Good for Pittsburg. The share which i have had in the material development our City May be considered Only the foundation which the things f the spirit Are built and in taking the proceeds the material to develop the things the spiritual world i feel that i am pursuing the Ideal path life and duty. Quot for All these reasons and for another More potent reason than All. Viz., that Pitts arg entered the Core my heart when i was a boy and cannot be torn out. I can never be one hair s breadth less Loyal to her less anxious to help her in any Way than i have been since i could help anything. My treasure is still with you my heart is still with you and How Best to serve Pittsburg is the question which recurs to me almost every Day my life. Quot Andrew .

Yet it was Plain to All observers i legislative procedure that the friends shipping were in the minority.

If you Are a thoughtful person the probabilities Are that you have been greatly interested and asked yourself More than once this burning question if others can make a Success and a Fortune in a a Giti mate business Why not 1?" our answer to this question is that you can provided you become interested with men business ability and experience and we now propose to demonstrate that we Are Correct. To this end we have been responsible for the organization the Korting Estex ranching co. The business this company will be sheep raising and will either make a Fortune it not. We believe it will and Are prepared to Back that belief to the end. Of course what is needed is the right kind a ranch an experienced superintendent and shepherds careful business men to operate its finances and a sul Lucient number people to join in an investment that promises such Large returns. Ave believe there Are enough men around the country somewhere that have a Little Money to invest and who Are willing to take a Chance to get Rich in a legitimate business Enterprise. The ranch this company is located in North Dakota and consists 25,000 acres. It lies South Dickinson one the largest Stock shipping Points the Northern Pacific railway. Its land is slightly rolling Prairie dotted by Springs and threaded by creeks and sheltered the North and West by Hills and mountains. The snows Here Are lighter than farther East South a and Are soon driven away by the warm Chinook winds. The land Cost the company 2.90 an acre. In addition to the land the company proposes to Purchase the entire Pendergast ranch which includes a five room House several a Jiuji Imge a Sheds Barng uses wagons farming implements Sev is located the immense ranch the Northwestern ranching co which now offers you an Opportunity to invest your savings in a very profitable business by monthly payments $5.00 each.

Additional buildings and sheep Sheds will be erected which will make ample provision for wintering 20,000 sheep. The dryness the atmosphere naturally cures the grasses while standing in this locality making the most healthful and nutritious food for sheep. We have engaged a most excellent superintendent and careful experienced sheep herders to care for our flocks. Our directory is composed business men ability. We propose to Stock this ranch with 10,000 ewes in Good condition and under four years age. Sheep raising has been universally a very profitable Bonsi Ness a Wing to the rapidity increase in the original flock the ready Sale for lambs and Wool and the Small Cost caring for the sheep. The history Large ranches in this county shows Cost caring for sheep not to exceed 60 cents per head and the fleece from the old sheep to average $1.00 to $1.25 each. The Money received from the Wool More than pays for caring for the sheep the entire year. The lambing time is the sheep Man s Harvest As the increase is tremendous. The agricultural reports North Dakota show the increase to be 80 to 00 lambs to each 100 ewes every year. Yearling lambs bring 2.25 to $3.50 and two to three year Olds from $3.50 to $5.00. Does this look like a losing proposition you need but make a careful study the history sheep raising in North Dakota to determinate not Only the safety this company s plans but to realize As Well the desirability an investment placed in a Field which is paying such enormous profits. This is about All there is in it. Think it Over a moment and if you Are interested write for our prospectus. Only a limited number shares left. P. H. Fitzgerald president no a Ito.
