What More Is Wanted TodayT Knicker Is Jones well educated? nocaer- He can read a speedometer aud write a check New York bug SEEK ASTORWEALTH Heir to $100,000,000 Receive! Letters From Many Persons. Womm Propose Msrrigge and Man Ask Him to Became Partntra In Business Others Maka Odd Requests. New York. Vincent Astor'g latest trouble Is a deluge of letters from persons anxious to advise him as to the best manner of spending his $100.- OuO.000 Inheritance. Many of the let ters are from women, telling of their great love and conveying offers of mar riage. Old women and young women, bra Een and demure, thin and fat ones, pretty aud ugly, have taken tbeir pens in hand, not without hope of gain. Some have pretended to bespeak Mr. Astor's Interest in behalf of causes other thai purely personal ones, but most of them have been frankly smit ten in the desire to call the young man's attention to certain persons that be otherwise might overlook. Some of the writers have waited in front of the Astor estate offices in ! Twenty-sixth street for a glimpse of the boy. Most have mistaken tho liRjidsonie "Kick" Hiddle for the ob ject of their curiosity, much to Rid dle's embarrassment. He ig an exe cutor of the Astor estute. is about thirty-four and looks youuger. And It isn't only through th me dium of letters that vvoinuu have pressed their suits. The telephone has been kept pretty buB.v, both at the of fices and at the Fifth avenue house, with girlish volcea whose owners wore anxious to have opportunities to meet the heir of millions. The reasons as signed were us many as the lettera contained. Soma of the writers want the young man to "do something worthy of his name." There have been suggestions that he finance the suffragette cause. Others want him to use his fortune to buy ii) breweries and distilleries and put them out of business for the Bake of promoting the cause of prohibition. Comparatively few of the letters writ ten by women are from inventors. ThiB lass of communications almost always bore a man's signature. Tilings suggested for a worthy use of the money ranged from pntent bung-starters to methods or bridging Helu in . strait. Included in the ap peals are those of professional beg gars. Churches, schools and libraries divide honors as to the numbers of tiielr letters with propositions from business houses that offer him inter ests for ever so small a Bum. Most of these letters, of course, need no answer. Those from women on subjects of the heart are entirely Ig nored. Many of tho latter come ac companied by photographs. Two of the fair correspondents sent as their own postcard, pictures of Lillian Rag Hell, from which they had forgotten to scratch tho name.
