Mrs. Stevens made a similar snnouticement
to her husliand.
The Marquis de Talleyrand refued to
consent to the los of her dearly bought
title, whereupon the elder Talleyrand gave
his son his title of Due de rlno. Mrs.
Stevens and the duke were married. They
lived together for som years, more or leys
unhappily, nnd then the duchess secured
a divorce. "Incompatibility" wss the cause
given In the court decree, but It generally
was understood that this word covered a
multitude of sins.
The story of Helen Morton, daughter of
the former vice president, Levi P. Morton,
reveals a tragic misalliance. Helen Mor
ton was a fine type of the accomplished
American heiress and an ornament to any
society. Brought up In the most refined
manner, and with literary attainments, she
married the dissolute Due de Valencay,
fascinated by the glamour of his title. They
married In grand state In 1901. She auffrrtd
for several years from the cruelties, neg
lect and Indignities of her husband, and,
although she saved his family from abso
lute; ruin and his family property from the
brokers, she afterwards discovered that
not ony had her dowery been forfeited to
the Eordld family of her husband, but that
press of disillusionment and marital J she had no right to wear the soiled and
anguish. Many fair, golden fingers before
hers have grasped the coveted strawberry
leaves encircling a coronet to be pierced
rruelly by the concealed thorns.
Many of the numerous American women
who have found titled husbands "Impos
sible" have had recourse to the divorce
i mirts. Others have agreed to separate
and others still have resigned themselves
to their fates, preferring to suffer in
silence rather than have the notoriety of
Consuelo Vanderbllt's marriage to the
iluke of Marlborough, eleven years ago, was
society's greatest event of that year. Miss
Viindwrbllt' brought her husband a dowry
of Jo.tK.m.ooo, and there was every prospect
thnt If she survived her parents the duke
of Marlborough would gain control of the
Vutidirbllt multi-millions. The marriage
of her father, however, effectually de
stroyed the air castles the duke had been
building, and It Is said that since that

A doren or more years ago there came
a dissolute scion of n decayed French no
bility across the waters to the United
States, fortune-hunting. This fellow car
ried as his only asset and passport to the
favor of some wealthy American girl to
any American girl who had the desired
ducats and would listen to him a title,
vain and vague and giy. He was Intro
duced as Count Bonl de Castellans. This
title gave him entrance to the select circle
In which moved the daughters of the late
Jay Gould, and finally to the Gould man
sion on the Hudson. The man who had
amassed the Gould millions, the father and
natural guardian of the family, sagacious,
bard-headed, old Jay Gould, was dead; his
youngest daughter, -Anna, was charming,
rich and twenty, the owner by right of In
heritance of an estate in cash and equities
amounting to S14.000.ou0.
Here Indeed was a plum worth the pick
lng. Count Bom did not conceal or at
tempt to conceal the motive of his matri
monial quest. It suited his purpose. In
Connection with it, to make love ardently
to the heiress. His success was advertised
in one of the most brilliant weddings ever
staged In New. York. Anna Gould became
Countess de Castellane, paying out of
hand. It Is Bald, for the title 2,000,000 to the
fortune-hunter's mother in France and $3,
000.000 to the successful angler himself.
The details of this shameful bargain and
sale were known to all the world, yet
when Anna Gould, Countess de Castellano,
sailed away from her native land It was aa
a reputable woman whose sale of herself
to a fortune-hunter and a libertine was
legal and honorable.
Now, after a series of years In which
her fortune has been squandered upon

Florence Audenreid of Washington,, a
liemitiful and swf et-hearti d girl, married
Count Pivonr.e. The ceremony was per
formed In great splendor. Secretary Blaine
gave the bride awny to th Impecunious
foreigner, and the bit m n was Theodore
Roustan, the French minister. Archbishop
Corrlgan pcrfnrm'l th' ceremony, and a
great crowd of functionaries and the best
society at the capital went to the church
to look on.
But, like others of America's lovable
young women, she found that her foreigner
could not give her the happiness for which 1
her heart waa yearning. The Countess PI-;
vonne soon learned that her Frenchman
was not a model husband. He turned out
to be only a beribboned roue. He was a
magnificent ppnder of money. He gave
gorgeous entertainments and bought won
derful presents for deml-mondalnes.
But the noble American girl stuck to her
choice persistently, and even journeyed to
Washington to obtain more money for her
husband. Her family objected. They told
her to let the count make the best of his
financial situation. They refused to allow
him more than $S,000 a year. The count
grew wroth at such treatment and vented
his anger on his suffering wife. He has
treated her so cruelly that she has become
an Invalid, and Is cut off from even such
happiness as her occasional visits to her
home had given her.
Lady William Bagot, who has decided
upon separation proceedings against her
husband, has been married but three years.
Lady Bagot was the beautiful Mis Lillian
May of Baltimore, and the wedding, which
took place In London, caused no slight sen
sation. Reports say that the union never
was a happy one, and disagreements soon
came. It Is said that Lady Bagot left her
husband several times, and that reconcilia
tions were arranged. Now ahe again has
found the mistreatment accorded her by
her husband insufferable.
The union of Eva Julia Bryant Mackay
with Prince Colonna had the usual sequel
years of unhapplness and neglected misery
for the beautiful American who wss mar
ried and dropped.

Baroness Bronsart von Schellemlorf Is a
beautiful divorcee. Once she was Miss
Isabel Bunce, an Ohio girl. The baron
came to this country on borrowed money
and society received him with Its usual
favor. Mammas with marriageable daugh
ters smiled upon him. The young women
looked upon him with admiring glanca
and thought him a wonderful person. The
baron held, through his family, some sort
of government position, which took him
away from the more expensive Ufa of Ku
rope. He took his pick .of the matri
monial offerings made at his shrlno, con
cluded the business arrangements of tho
affair, married In eclat, and then took hla
bride and the money to the German colony
In East Africa.
This American girl waa accustomed to
the American conception of conjugal pro
prieties and attentions. She found her
self Baroness Ton Schellendorf, and noth
ing more. The baron spent 1 her money
freely, consorted freely with nativo
women, and seemed surprised when she
ventured to remonstrate with him. 80

The socloty event of a year was the
marriage of Helena Zimmerman, Cincinnati
beauty and heiress, to the Duke of Man
chester. Recently reports have come 10
America to the effect that their life Is a
succession of disagreements. It Is said
the duke and the duchess have different
views on the vital question. She resents
his open attentions to other women. It
Is not to be supposed, however, that In
the caae the American glrl w'nt blindly

morals. His father had the reputation of
being the most disreputable noble in Eng

Relne Fuss of St. Louts, waa granted a
divorce from her husband, who. belonged
to one of the oldest and most respected
families In Spain. Respectability, she
found, as have many before her, means
much less abroad than It does In Araerlci.
Her husband's favorite place of residence
was Paris, but she could not endure the
life he led. The saddest part of their ca.ie

May Yohe and Lord Francis Hope were
another pair who were divorced after
years of Incompatibility. She found It im.
possible to retain her respect and lov

gave her freedom.
Few International titled marriages have
proved successful. Out of 174 American
heiresses of more or less note who have
brought foreign husbands 1231,000.000 in
dowries, there are less than twenty from
whom reports of unhapplness have not
come to America. Perhaps $200,000,009
has been scattered among foreign hus
bands who have mistreated and humiliated
the women who trusted them.
Rarely do American girls who marry
titles ever attain the coveted social dis
tinction for which they have longed. The
American girl who goes abroad to live
the life uf a countess Is taken away from
a home life In which she always has been
surrounded by loving companions boys
and girls whom she has understood and
loved taken away to a country the man
ners and customs of which she knows
nothing and there obliged to live within
herself or associate with depravity. It
takes a long struggle for a girl to pun
these surroundings aside and raise hersmf
up to social recognition. Only a few of
the many have attained it. "A European
