Tho woch of tho PrincoRH Colonna
have brought tlto matter iigiiln into the
tnoutliH of tlto people, nndtliOKo who read
with astoniBhcd ojch tho accou (b of
that fiunoiiH Puritan wedding; who were
tilled witlt envy by tho details of tho
drcBBCH and tho jowolry; who Belied that
they had not been thrown by fato into

contemplation of tlto garrulous happiness
of thoir own daughters, wedded to tho
HobbBca and 13oggses and Dobbses of
thoir henrt'B choice
That American girls have married hap
nllv into tho nobility thero is no
question, but it is hard to pie'e tho
hnppy ones, because it has genet ally
been supposed that Mrs. MacUay's
daughter was among thojtappiest of tho
" Tho next exposure of domestic in
harmony is apt to ctop in tho courts
from almost anydirection tocaupoa nega
tive pleasure in tlto hearts of Lady This
and Lady That who hnvo comb weeping
homo to thoir mothers' welcoming arms
and theirfathers' depleted bank deiwsits.
Thoro has nover been a hint that Eva
Julio Bryant Mackay didn't tuaUol'rinco
di Colonna just as good a wifo uh she
would huvo made John Smith or John
Smith Jones of Downiovillo hud tho
tido of her fortunes drifted her in the
direction of a marriago beforo tho priest
intend of tho Papal Nuncio of Paris.
Sho has over been a good mother to
her children and has kept to herself tho
wounds inllicted on her pride by iter
husband's neglect and teckless ex
penditures. They wero married in 1885. Tho re
coption was tlto talk of two continents.
'Tho list of guests was ahnost as full
of notable unities as tho Almitnacho dc
Gotha. Then tho California girl was
supposed to ltavo settled down to the
work of living up to tho nobility of her
title and to the holding of all the love
of tho noble-hearted Colonna.
But tho infelicity began almost beforo
tho echo of M. di Rondiou's blessing
had died away in tho dim church
aisles, or tlto echoes of tho reception
music had been lost in tho clanger of
tho streets. The Princo wanted money
of course. All Princes who marry
American Girls aro short of money.
And of course lie was given money,
These titled scoundrels seem ever to pay
to themselves, "Wo come high, hut they
must huvo us."
Tho princo had plonty of fun with tlto
American monoy for which ho had
sold his famil name, lie gamboled to
his heart's content. Then this nnces
tored debitucheo had tho hardihoood to
complain that his wiro was o'er fond of
Clara Huntington is tlto Princess
Hutzfeldt, a proud nitino from it proud
land. Sho glitters in tho capitals of
Europe. Tho bright lights glint upon
her bare and shapely shouldots. Tho
jowcls glisten in her hair. She walks
in beauty. Tho honiigo or men and tho
envy of women are hers, yet she was a
small grocer's daughter.
If C. P. Huntington, tho millionaire,
had not taken up and adopted this girl
sho might never have been heatd of out
sido Sacramento. But tho endowment
of his wealth placed her in a position to
bo sought lifter by men with more titles
than honor, and, who woro desirious of
putting financial props under falling
When sho met the Prinoo Hutzfeldt
ho had been a ntko and touo for jears.
Ho was ono of tho most petsistont
gamblers in all Europe. His gambling
debts thteatened to get his high iiaiiio
down into tho debris of tho dungeons.
Tho title Princess was sutllcient
temptation for the joung gill. But
beyond this, and notwithstanding his
debaucheries, tho Princo Hutzfeldt wits
a haudhomo man with tho grand air.
So tho girl's heart was won. Tho
winning of tho pocket book of tho stein
old hatdwaro man and railroad jobber
was quite another thing. C. 1'. Hun
tington had it very poor opinion of
princes generally and of tojsteiing,
guinblitig prineeB in particular. Ho
sot it much higher valuo on a United
States senator than on it prince, and
was willing to nay moio for one. But
he ihiully yielded to tho importunities
of his adopted daughter.
Tho wedding was celebrated in Lon-
don on October 157, 1889. Bishop Pat.
terson performed tho ceremony In
llrompton Oratory, and Count Paul
Ilnt'feldt, German embassador to tho
court of St. James and undo of the
groom, throw open tho Gerinatt uiubiiHsy
for it wrddjng breakfast, at which the
mighty of many lands drank much
Huntington gave his adopted
daughter $.'1,000,000 as a dowry, but the
princo was not to touch tho ptlnclpal.
He might, however, use some of tho in
let est to pity up his $500,000 of gambling
debts If lie cared to economize. Tho
wedding had almost been broken olT by
tho Princo beforo this llnanclal arrange
ment was dually agreed to.
Befoto many months hud passed the
stories began to llont out that tho
Prince was still gambling; that ho was
iucteasing his debts; that Huntington
was being called upon to settle them,
aud that the Princess was leading a
miseiablo life, neglected and forlorn.
These stories have been tepeated from
time to time. Ft lends of tho Princess
say site Is anything but happy, But as
jot there has been no sepatation.
In Philadelphia Is an ambitious
inamnia named Whcclor. She has great
store of worldly wealth, and the one
absorbing passion of her life was to
have a daughter marry into tho nobility
of Eutope. The petted daughter of the
house was Mary Wheeler, large, stolid,
white haired, stupid in school and in
To give this daughter an opportunity
to socmen titled husband Mrs. Wheeler
welcomed tho olfscourlug of Eutopean
nobility to her fireside, set up a cottage
at Newport, made an annual European
pilgrimage, tiled tlto Loudon season,
and had an establishment on tho Isle of
In 188'J or 1800 thoy mot Count
Piippenhoim. Now this Count Pnppon
lieim was a handsome, dashing sort of
chap in appearance. Ho had a family
name of tho highest standing and a
personal reputation of the lowest. Ho
had gambled and lost heuvily, hud
welched his debts of honor, and tho
German nobility hud refused to play
with him further, lie had a castle on
the Rhine--a historic, baltlemented
castle, crammed full of legends and
traditions, and an estate on which ho
could borrow no moio monoy.
His was just tho name and hnut-o
which needed ilnnticial propping, and
tho tow-headed and confiding Mary
Wheeler was just the girl ho was look
ing for. His proposal was accepted with
alacrity and great joy.
Beforo long over to America canto
Count Ptippenheim and his brother
Ludwig. They went to tlto Bollovuo
hotel in Philadelphia, and coolly called
upon Mrs. Wheeler to pay their hotel
Brother Ludwig also wanted a rich
American wife. But lie had no title.
Though ho had a shade tlto better of his
brother in the matteruf habits.he didn't
find it an easy matter to catch an
heiress for a In ide. Ho was persistent
in his hunting, however, and in tlto
short time beforo tho celebration of his
brother's wedding proposed to no less
than bovon girls, all rich. Though his
brother with a title and a reputation tit
for tho gutters had been accepted on his
Hist trial, poor titleless Ludwig was re
jected every titno.
Tlto wedding of Count Papponhoini
and Mary Wheeler was tho swuggeicst
ittrair over known in tho city of Brotherly
Love, llio ceteinony was porformed at
high noon in St. Mark's, the swellest of
the swell chtuches, and the attendance
wits so largo that thero was a f tee light
Mis. Wheeler made tho count and
countess a handsome allowance, and
paid otT his pressing gambling debts.
For a short timo thoy lived at Castle
Pnppcnhoim, and then cauio back to live
on Mrs. Wheeler at the Islo of Wight.
When asked why they had not made a
longer stay on the count's estates tho
answer was that the German nobility
would not admit to their society the
rich Aiuoricaii girl. Though the)
ojioned their doors to tho disgraced
welcher and notorious debitucheo, thoy
turned their backs upon his honest, if
foolish, American wife.
After tliiB whenover tho count wished
to enjoy himself ho went otf to tho con
tinent alone. His neglect of his wife
bfcamo moio and moro unbearable. Ho
diow on his niothor-iii-law to pay his
gambling indebtedness and the bills in
curted in his roj storing just as if she
wero a bank. Mary Wheeler's heart was

tieiitment no longer and after tno birth

Lillian Price, daughter of Commodore
Cicero Pi ice, "did ery well'' in her (list
mattiage, accotdlng to the notions of
people who think that "doing well"
means mnrijing money. Such was her
giilislt beauty that in Troy, N. Y., which
was her birthplnco aud homo, sho was
considered tho prettiest gill in town.
In 1870 sho visited Washington, and
theto met Louis C. llauiiueisley, tho
rather dull son of nillllonalro Andrew
Gordon llatninersley, of New York,, In
1880 tho two wero married, and In 188.'!
Andrmv Gordon Hiiuimetsley died,
leaving his $7,000,000 to his sou.
This sou ut once mudo a will and did
not long survive his father. When his
will was opened it was found that ho
had left his widow it life interest in ills
estate, but had attached a piovlnlon that
if ho died without issue all tho pioperty

Issue of his cousin, Andrew Hooker
Hammersley. In case his cousin should
hao no male issue, the estate was to bo
distributed to charitable Institutions by
Louis 0. Hamiuersley left no children,
so his wifo found herself In control of
all tho Hammersley millions J. Hooker
Hammersley, who was a bachelor when
Louis C. Hauuneisley died, tried to wed
tho widow, but was lofused, and in order
not to let those millions slip out of his
family married at once some one else.
Then in 1887 along came the Duke of
Marlborough witli a reputation belltting
tho Marlbototigh name and a teceiit
divorco from his wife. Tho Churchllls
never wero faithful to women, and the
duko was no exception. People spoke
of his escapades under their bieath, but
ho captured tho rich and beautiful
widow Hammersloy. and on Juno 'JO,
1888, made her his wife, the ceieinony
being pompously pet formed in New
York by Major Hewitt.
Marlborough's profligacy hud btotight

but she fought out some of the money
ami spent it lavishly in rehabilitating
Iter husband's estates. All sho could

Singultuly enough Marlborough did
not abuse or particularly neglect his
wifo. He was getting along in jours
and his blood had somewhat cooled.
But he didn't last long, and on Novem
