“Mac,” Their' Boston Waiter,
Talks About Their Simple
Millionaire Weds Wealthy Wom-
an Who Jilted Him Years Ago
Because He Was Poor.
Lincoln, Nob.—Alltw Eva Thompson,
fcbtfor of David Eugene ThoinpHon, one
'of Lincoln's few millionaires and for-
mer HiuhuHsador to Mexico and to liia
aJi, sprang a surprise on all her friends
recently by going to Denver and there
marrying her girlhood sweetheart, Kd-
wlu A. Brown, a millionaire. Both Mr.
*md Mrs. Brown are sixty eight years
Engaged 40 Years Ago.
Nc»arly forty years ago Brown and
Mltw Thompson were engaged to l>e
married, hut Brown was then poor and
his suit was frowned upon by members
of her family. Under this pressure she
broke the engagement and Brown left
this city. He found another sweet-
heart and married her. On the day of
his wedding he received a letter from
Miss Thompson, In which she declnred
that she would wed him If the whole
world stood In the way and that her
love for him was "stronger than a sea
of opinions or u mountain of opposi-
Went Into Business.
When she heard the news Miss
Thompson determined never to wed,
and turned to a business life. Her
brother was then one of the big ofD-
clals of the Burlington railroad and
owned a string of eating houses. After
serving her apprenticeship in the bust-
news she became the manager of them
railroad restuurants and operated
them for years until his growing for-
tune found other means of Increasing
Ills revenue, and he sold out.
Miss Thompson then devoted her at-
tention to civic betterment programs
which she outlined and carried out un-
der the patronage of a number of wom-
en's clubs. Only a few months ago,
when the Lincolnshire, a fashionable
tearoom, got Into flnundnl difficulties,
she was persuaded to take over the
management. When this was sold out
she was free again.
a millionaire. His wife died and he
devoted his time and money to the
amelioration of trumps. He made his
home In Denver, and there sought the
privilege of conducting u lodging house
for the down-and-outs. Mayor Speer
told him he required a man who knew
(ramps. Brown thereupon doffed his
fine raiment, put on old clotln* and
started out os a tramp. He said he
wanted to study the unemployed at
first hand, And out how they lived nnd
what their umhltlons were, and then
help them. He did this, and In time
became known nation-wide as the mil-
lionaire tramp. He rode box cars with
them, shared their meals In wayside
comps and slept with them In box cars.
Out of his experience rose a desire
to tell the world about them, end he
turned author. Two of the best known
of these hooks are "Broke," and "The
Man Without o Dime."
Coup'e Now Will Help.
"I have followed Air. Brown closely
In the advancement of his high Ideals
toward scientifically solving our na-
tional problems of poverty and desti-
tution," said his wife, who Is an edu-
cated, cultured woman. "Ills philosophy
rings with a religion of reason that hai
made my love sacred. 1 think It was
wonderful for him to make the crusade
he did, nnd still more wonderful to
write about It so beautifully. 1 shall
add all the power I possess In aiding
Mr. Brown in his declaration that no
human being In this great civilized
country of ours shall he without food
or shelter simply because unluckily
they find themselves without work."

"As neat as a pin" is no Idle phrase
when used In describing this attractive
bungalow. The whole outward appear-
ance gives the observer that Impres-

are beyond criticism.
This Is a frame bungalow, which

has an outside Icing door. Right off
the kitchen is the rear porch, 6 feet

There Hre two bedrooms, each 12
feet by 11 feet, nnd they are reached
through the dining room In a way
which gives them absolute privacy.
We first have a small hull, with a
clothes closet Immediately adjoining
the dining room door, and suitable for
table linens, etc.; then we have an-
other closet off this same hall, and an-
other closet In the bathroom. At
either end of the hall we have the
bedrooms, each with its clothes closet
also. Both of these rooms have two
windows, so placed ns to give you an
opportunity to arrange the bed nnd

this description can make or mar the
general effect given by the outside ap-

be the keynote, nnd whether the wall
covering Is kalsonilne, or paint, or
wull paper, the use of subdued neutral
tints is preferable. Of course, there
are very cheerful chintzy-patterned
flowered papers, which always fill the
requirements of a bedroom; we need
not neglect these. But It is a safe rule
to dress the living nnd dining room
walls in a subdued tint which will he

NOT TO BE COAXED
Boston, Alass.— Much has been writ-
ten lately about the simple tastes and
unassuming ways of Calvin Coolidge,
now President of the United States,
and of Mrs. Coolidge, and those who
are well acquainted with them say
this simplicity permeates their life.
When Coolidge was governor of Mas-
sachusetts he and Mrs. Coolidge made
j their home Ht the Adams house, and
their regular waiter there, "Mac," who
is known to many hundreds of Boo-
j tonians, told a writer for the Boston
Sunday Advertiser a lot about their
gastronomicul tastes. Said he:
“Their breakfast order was always
j the same—‘Two Special No. l's, grape-
' fruit for Mrs. Coolidge and orange
“Special No. 1 never varied. It
consisted of two small pots of coffee,
I graham muffins and fruit.

and call for a clean glass and a whole

Grouse Season Opens.
London.—Hundreds of thousands of
acres of Scottish moort and scores j

have been rented at fabulous prices by
wealthy Americans and Britishers for

Bernard Baruch and C. H. Mackay
of New York are among the wealthy
Americans who have rented estates
and are entertaining large house par-
ties for the season. Bernard Baruch
has rented the magnificent Fetteresso,

lias taken Castle Orant, with 10,000
acres of broad Scottish moors.
They have taken over these famous
old houses complete for two or three
months, with all their staffs and fur-
niture, lock, stock and btrrel.
Many members of parliament have
also taken “shootings" nnd agents re-
port that nearly all the best estates
have been taken at good rents.
Prices for the season are higher
than lust year, according to the agents.
there are plenty of pheasants, black
game and snipe.
Four large estates are attll with
out shooting season tenants, among
them being the famous Thurso castle,
for which $10,000 Is being asked. King
George has often stayed at Thurso
for the season and has made some of
his most famous “hags" there.
