New York, July 20 . Chhpiltous hut

In a boarding house at 075 .Madison
:tveiiue, comer of Sixty-first street,
living with her daughter, S.vlvla, and
her pet dog, Dewey, In two very or-
Her newly made friends In fashion
tide circlet believed that she would
go to Newxrt for the summer, after
her surprising debut In the Hotel
laza, and they are greatly amazed
to learn that ho ha returned to a
life almost us simple as that In Mu
red brick Hobokeil Hat where she
lived last spring.
It's too expensive," she explained
to an acquaintance. 'You have to keep
dressed up all the time. It's utter non
sense. Hobokeu should have suited
mo well enough.'"
At alt events she seemed happier
In her new home. There she pays ap
proximated $10 a weuk for a plainly
furnished . lttlng room and a bedroom,
with slm.de board for herself. Miss
Sylvia and Dewey. Her saving Is at
least $C00 a mouth.
It Is said that her daughter Is not
pleased with the change.
(leorgo Wheatley, the negro waiter.
bellhop nnd door attendant, vouches
for the fact that .Mrs. Hetty has tic-
liilred the tlplng Jtubit.
Why," said he, "I always clears
two plunks or more of her a week.
She gives mo a dollar now, fifty
cents then. It counts up. .Mis. Oreen
iln't grouchy or particular; takes the
dishes Just as 'em comes. She ain't
stingy, like some folks say. She hand
ed Caroline, the maid, $2 the other
morning, just for nothing. I can't say
that she wastes it, though."
There Is other evidence, too, that
her brief stay at the l'Uua has left
an Ineffaceable impression on her. She
actually sits through a course dinner.
Stays clear of the fish though,"
luterixdated George. "And ain't stuck
much on desserts. Hut she eats 'em."
