It la evident from the statement just made publlo that Uelen Uonld “has tumbles of her own.’’ She haa a great deal of money and valuable property, whioh she has said that Bhe holds In trust for the neneht of humanity, and the trouble arises from the dlfli oul ty she xperienoee In holding It. Kvery body seems to want some of It for one purpose or another. In order to discourage the applloanti Miss Uould has adopted the plan of mail ing a printed etat ement of the demand* made unon her to all who apply for aid. This has been rather harshly orltlolaed by gome who have reoelved It, hut It would seem as If they had only them selves to blame If their feelings are hurt. She dll not ask them to apply to her for assistance, and the person who asks help of an utter stranger Invites a oold, hard, businesslike reply. Furthermore, Miss Uould does not give the names of those who have made re quests of her. She does not tell who the lour young women are who wanted her to provide them with wedding trosseaus, she veils In seoreoy the three who asked her lor watches, the eleven who sought pianos, the one who wished a set of teeth uni the two who were after blcyoles. In this she seemed to be most considerate The temptation must have been great to give the list of these and other ‘‘nervy ' people, lust for the amusement of the Eubllo, and they should be grateful to er for resisting It.

The value of what was Indlreotly sought, however, would easily add another $1,000,000 to the total. From this it will be seen that Miss Could Is Kept pretty busy being trustee of her fortune.
