Letters From Many Persons.

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.
