Robert Goelet, whose .wife accuses
him of intolerable cruelty, inherited
$35,000,000 that he had not earned.
I wonder how much money young
Robert Goelet could earn if he were
to be deprived suddenly of the money
which came to him through the vast
sections of New York city real estate
held by his ancestors.
About $9 a week or $1.50 a day
since it has been estimated thai that
amount represents the earning ca
pacity of the average college grad
uate when he goes to work. But who
can say what the earnestness, the
faith, the honest purpose of. such a
poor young man are worth to the
woman who loves him!
Besides such values Robert Goelet's
"millions seem pitifully small. And it
is precisely these priceless things
which are not nominated in the bond
when beauty weds with unearned
millions and they live happily ever
afterwards or until the divorce
papers have been served.

When Marshall Field died he want
ed to be remembered and have his
name spoken by people in Chicago, so
he left a little $8,000,000 out of his
$150,000,000 for a big museum to be
known as the Field Columbian Mu

want to be sure they have a perfect
lawful and legal right to accept, the
site offered them by the South Park
commissioners. So they have start

Mrs. Potter Palmer came down off
her high horse yesterday a little
Way. Not all the way. She sent a
messenger to tell the assembled
newspaper men at tlie Chicago Wo-,
man's Club that three women have
been appointed as a committee to ad
vise with her (Mrs. Palmer) on how
the $67,000 world's fair fund shall be
spent. The members are Mrs. Geo.
Bass, president Chicago Woman's
Club; Mrs. Charles Henrotin, 743
Lincoln parkway; Mrs. William P.
Thjs is the first sign of surrender
that has come from the Lake Front
dame in the fund scandal. It is even
expected now that one of these days
Mrs. Palmer will consent to meet in
person some of the people who have
a perfect right to ask her a few ques
tions about the fund.
H; N. Higinbotham wired from
Montreat, N. C, that he believed the
money should go for a woman's
huilding. Mrs. Joseph T. Bowen said
the committee picked by Mrs. Palmer
looks good to her and a "sane de
cision" about the money may be ex
pected. o o
"Thomas," said the mother

"It ain't all," replied Tommy.
"Part of it's is Elsie."
