Daughter of King Leopold
II, Released From Mad
house, Writes Book De
By International SerTlc.
London, May 2. "I owe nothing
but misfortune to my royal origin.
My life represents a succession of
fatalities of which I was powerless
to avert the final denoument. I
have been a victim ever since my
girlish feet were led into devious
paths. I have always suffered defeat."
These words come from Princess
Louise of Belgium, the daughter of
King Leopold II, who in her book,
"My Own Affairs," published recent
ly, retraces "the road of my Calvary."
She gives to the world some amaz
ing revelations of the intrigues at
"the most corrupt court of Europe."
where she lived for more than 20
"Married in 1874 at 17 to Prince
Philip of Saxe-Coburg, I expected to
find in marriage the joys that a hus
band and child can give. I have had
bitter proof to the contrary."
Imprisoned in an Asylum.
For 33 years she was tied to a
husband she loathed the marriage
was annulled in 1907. In 1898 she had
been placed in an asylum "mad, for
leasons of state." There she remained
until, after seven or eight years, she
( scaped, and in Paris was declared
"Driven to Munich by the war,
then to Budapest, taken prisoner by
Hungarian bolshevists, I have sur
vived the European tempest, and I
have seen all those who disowned
and crushed me beaten and punished.
"On the day when I was being
f searched by Hungarian bolshevists I
heard one of them say to another;
'Here is a king's daughter who is
poorer than I am.' "
Of her wedding day Princess
Louise speaks with horror.
"I am not, I am sure, the first
woman who. after having lived in
the clouds during her engagement,
has been as suddenly hurled to the
ground on her marriage night, and
who, bruised, and mangled in her
soul, has fled from humanity in
"I am not the first woman who
has been the victim of false modesty
and excessive reserve, attributable,
perhaps, to the hope that the deli
cacy of a husband, combined with
natural instincts, would arrange all
for her, but who was told nothing
by her mother." .
Tr Emnress Francis Joseph Prin
cess Louise attributes her later mis
fortunes. She remarks with Ditter
ness that-she has known the hatred
.li,V1i nature cannot conceive, "the
hatred of my son for his mother."
Tsaf Was Magician.
Concerning ex-Tsar Ferdinand of
Bulearia. her brother-in-law, Prin
cess Louise relates a strange story:
"I have seen, I still see m htm, a
kind of modern necromancer, a fin
de siecle magician , . . rie must
have been possessed by a power be
yond this earth. But he did not be
lieve in God; he believed in the
devil ... . ,
"I asked myself to what fanatical
sect, to what satanic brotherhood he
belonged in his early days, doubtless
with the idea of furthering his ambi
tions and his extraordinary dreams
of the future.
"I remember that in our palace Sit
Vienna Ferdinand would sometimes
ask me to play for him when we were
alone in the evening. He insisted
upon the room being only dimly lit.
He would then come to the piano
and listen in silence.
Would Strike Pose.
"At midnight he would stand up
solemnly, his features drawn, con
tracted. He then looked at the clock,
and listened to the first of the 12
strokes, and when they were nearing
the end he would say: 'Play the
march from "Aida."'
"Then, withdrawing to the middle
of the room he would strike a cere
monial attitude, and repeat incom
prehensible words which frightened
"Ferdinand used to articulate caba
listic formulas, stretching out his
arms with his body bent and his
head thrown backward. Among the
mysterious phases a word which

looked as pale as wax. Ferdinand's
features took on a sinister expres

a hoarse voice he threatened me,
saying sneeringly: 'Take care, you
will repent this, by 'kophte.'"
The prince of Coburg and Prin
cess Louise were often the guests of
their relative. Queen Victoria. 1
John Brown Repulses Prince.
Princess Louise, describing
Queen Victoria's evening drives at
Windsor and in the Isle of Wight,
"Preceding the queen, a plaid on
his arm, a flask of whisky swung
over his shoulder, came John
Brown, the faithful Scotsman,
whose doings occupied such a prom
inent position in the Court Circular
i "He led the way, ensconced him
self in the brake drawn by two gray
horses and the drive which lasted
about two( hours began.
"Evven 'the queen's children ex

"It happened that the prince of
Wales, afterward the great King
Edward VII, once wanted to see his
mother on urgent and unexpected
business. But John Brown opened
the door of the queen's room and
said decisively:. 'You cannot see the
queen, sir.' "

him to write it down. He traced let

some kind of Greek characters.
VI Call the Devil and He Comes."
"After these seances I questioned
him, because while they were pro
ceeding I had to be silent and play
the march from 'Aida.' He invariably
answered: 'The devil exists. I call on
him and he conies.'
"I did not believe this; I mean to
say, I did not believe in the devil's
actual visit, but I was nevertheless
a little frightened, and when my
brother-in-law once again began his
incantations I would look round to
see if there was anything extraor
dinary in the room. But there was
nothing unusual, excepting Fer
dinand and my own curiosity and
perhaps the unrevealed vision of both
Later, at a dinner, Ferdinand said
to Princess Louise: "You see every
thing here. All is my kingdom. I
lay it, myself included, at your feet."
Again that evening he said, brusque

offer what I have offered. Do you

Naming of U. S. Diplomat to
Vatican Not Contemplated
Washington, May 2. Appoint
ment of an American diplomatic rep
resentative to the Vatican is not Tin
der contemplation, said a statement
issued today at the White House in
response to repeated inquiries as to
the possibility of such an appoint
ment being made.
"Many inquiries have come to the
president relative to a contemplated
nomination of a diplomatic repre
sentative to the Vatican," said the
statement, "and the president has
thought it best to answer all of them
by the public statement that no con
sideration has been given to such a
step and there will be no occasion
to consider it unless congress by the
enactment of law provides for such
representation. The president does
not understand that any such pro
posal has been made to "ress."

If it is scientifically baked; if it contains
all the health-giving qualities in palatable

THEY began Monday and were attended by
large crowds of well satisfied shoppers. De
lighted with the fine quality of merchan
dise offered at prices within their reach these shop
pers learned that these opportunities were not the
results of accident. They learned that these op
portunities were the products of a carefully devised
system. System in buying, in personal responsi
bility, in the management of .evfery department, in
the arrangement of overhead expenses system in
the search for bargains, in the scrutiny of goods, in
the fixing of prices. Equally important has been
that systematic arrangement of our own financial
affairs to the end that WE ARE AT ALL TIMES IN A POSITION TO PAY CASH WHEREVER
CASH PAYMENT WILL SECURE A GOOD B A GAIN FOR OUR CUSTOMERS. We claim no credit
for giving low prices. We give them as a good business proposition. The system by which we are able
to overbid in quality and underbid in price has come to be known as the Lookout in the Foretop. That
system is ever operating for the advantage of our customers and the enlargement of the public service
field occupied by Brandeis Stores.
