has been arranged between L. Fred
Davis, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred
L. Davis, of Northaw House, Potter's
Bar, London, and Sirs. Ida von Claus
sen, ot New York.
Mrs. Ida von Claussen has attracted
much notoriety In this city and country
within the last five years, principally
when she attacked Charles H. Groves,
American minister to Sweden, because
he would not present her to the Swedish
King, and because more recently for,
attempts to heckle Theodore Roosevelt
when he refused to side with her In her
light on Graves.
She is the daugther of a New York
merchant, Adolph Claussen, and a
granddaughter of Matthew Byrnes,
from whom she inherited a large for

Francis Honan, from whom she obtained
a divorce in 10CG in South Dakota. With
her five-year-old daughter she went to
Germany anc resumed her maiden name,
improved with the prefix "von."
In the summer of ISOu Mrs. von Claus
sen was introduced to King Oscar of
Sweden at a lawn fete at Wiesbaden.
Her sponsor was an officer In the Swe
dish navy, and Mrs. von Claussen al
ways Insisted that the presentation was
at King Oscar's request. The King
gave her a general Invitation to call If
she ever came to Sweden, she Insisted.
She also said that he gave her a slgned
photograph, which would serve as a
ticket to anything in Sweden.
A year or so later Mrs. von ClauB
sen went to Sweden and descended on
Mr and Mrs. Graves, and insisted on
being presented. But Mr. Graves told
her she could not be presented because
she had not the proper credentials
Mrs. von Claussen protested and In
sisted, but to no purpose.

with the Invitation. The President in
