It Is declared that the Countess, formerly
MUs Anna Gould, has tired of putting up
monev for the Count, and that her purse

stated by Figaro In a recent Issue. Figaro's
declaration Is alio borne out by the fact
that, notwithstanding the Count's strait

scattering her money -with a lavish hand.
Besides tho Countess's donations to chari

city of Paris which will perpetuate her

Charlte Bazar, which burned in 1S37, with
