Title: How Carnegie Got to Be Rich

Andrew Carnegie came to America as a Scot born immigrant child

and to help out in his mother’s household, sold newspapers on the street corners every day.

After he grew up and founded the enormous steel conglomerate, US Steel,

he became notorious among the newspaper boys of the city because each day, when he went out upon the street,

he would give each newsboy a dime,

and in so doing, “Tip them Off” as to who he was.

One day, after he had give one of the boys a dime

and the boy identified him as Andrew Carnegie,

the boy asked:

          “Mr. Carnegie, How did you get to be so Rich ?”

To which Mr. Carnegie replied :

“I Bought when others Sold,
                                                                      and I Sold when others Bought.”
