Vatican Is perhaps the roost cere

one' of the moBt picturesque, and all cos

King Edwsrd's carriage entered " the court

Rome with the exception Of the present
shah of Persia, his majesty was saluted by
a battalion of the Palatine guards In full

that since the grotesque rendering of the

MOTHER OF COUNTESS TALKS
Mrs. Thaw Makes Soma Explanation
Concerning . Her Daugh. . r
PITTSBURG. Pa., April 29. Tha follow
ing communication to the Associated Press
by Mrs. William. Thaw, mother- of -the
countess of Yarmouth, explains itself:.
There; is one line of romance to call It by
no harsher term largely indulged in ty
newspapers, which the Associated Press Is
asked to correct. The particular Instance
now referred to Is that of the "settlement"
in connection with the marriage of the earl
of Yarmouth. . Briefly, the facts are these
(each la put Into a separate paragrapn in
order to be more clearly understood):
Miss Thaw, now the countess of Yar
mouth, st the death of her father, was left
(aa wore each of his five children by his
second marriage) with an Independent for
tune of nearly 1500,000. Half of thla amount
waa immediately put Into trust for each
child, the Income only to be available dur
ing their lifetime. Part of the remaining
half of the fortune of each of the children
consists of one-tenth share each In the
'William Thaw Coke trust," which la tied
up absolutely and irrevocably, save -as to
Whst is known as the "free estate" of
Miss Thaw, amounting to about one-half of
the whole estate, has been by consent of
herself and Lord Yarmouth, formed Into- a
third trust, to be managed by tbe Fidelity
and Trust company of l'lttsbura. together
with one individual trustee. .
Tha Income from ail three trusts will be
Mid to the countess of Yarmouth (nothin
like what at various timws haa been stated)
whlcn sne, witnout suggestion irom i lie
other side, allotted to toe eaxl hlmaelf.
In the case or ner oeatn it Is arranged
that the income from about one-fifth of her
total estate will be paid over to. or In
vested for the benefit of, the title and es
state of Hertford, to which, shou.'d he out
live his latner, tne eari win succeed.
"These," the communication continues,
"are the plain, unvarnished facts glvsn
through the Associated Press by Mrs. Thaw
herself. At no time Das tbere been any
hitch, whatever, because of financial ques
tions, neither has there been any demand
by the earl or his family, the whole bslng
arranged by Mrs, Thaw and her immediate
family, aa a proper recognition of the posi
tion the earl and his countess will occupy."
. Mrs. Thaw adds the following comment:
' The whole discussion by the newspspers
haa been simply a feeling about In the dark.
Not one item of Information has been given
out - heretofore by anyone. The freedom
With which ciphers are thrown about by
printers is typical or ins age.
