The Immense fortune of the late
Custav Kunst has at last rendered Its
share to Mrs. Adolph Constabel, nee
Miss Matilda Walker.
Mrs. Constabel received today
45,000. marks from the Kuntt estate
and a chapter In the romance is clos
ed with the proverbial "lived happy
ever after". ' ,
While a young girl Matilda Walker,
n pretty and modest part-Hawaiian,'
attracted the attention of Kunst by
her beautiful manner and splendid
voice. The millionaire was a man
quick to act. The girl was offered the
best of musical training by the mas
tcrs of, Europe. She was bright and
appreciative. She studied hard Inkier,
new work, and won well deserved lion
or. When Mr. Kunst died no mention
was made of Mrs. Constabel and all
her friends wondered. It was suppos
ed she would receive some recogni
tion from her friend of great wealth.
She, however, marie no complaint.
Kuntt had befriended her In her
youth and the happiness of her home
was not marred by this apparent
slight. It was generally believed that
Kunst Intended to remember the girl,
but, like many men who believed they
had a stronger hold on life, put off
making a change in his will.
It Is supposed that the relatives of
Mr. Kunst, knowing hls'great friend-
chip for the young woman, have ful
filled a tribute of affection which l,
