Robert Goelet, whose wife accuses
him of intolerable cruelty-, inherited 535,000,000 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 that 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 Coelet's millions seem pitifully small. And it is precisely these priceless things which are not nominated in the hond when beauty weds with unearned millions and they live happily ever afterwards or until the divorce papers have been served. Love plus youth, plus courage, plus purpose and hard work! That is the sum of married happi-ness-the higher mathematics of the heart.

So they have start ed a "friendly" suit against the Mar shall Field heirs and assigns to see what the courts say about the right of. the museum trustees-to. acceptithe site. . o o MRS; PALMER COMES THROUGH WITH SOME INFORMATION 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 the Chicago Wq 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. Conger. This 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 building. 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, .u...
