HER OWN INVENTION
TESTED BY PRINCESS
Extraordinary Career of Her
Husband Recalled by Pres?
ence in America.
BT LA MARQITSE DK FONTEXOT.
THE presence in New York of Prin- '
cess Anne Loewenstem-Wert -
heim, daughter of the late Earl
Of Mexborough. and who made the'
trip across the Atlantic on the Majestic '
iast week for the purpose of submitting ,
i to a practical test the self-leveling cot
which she has invented for the preven?
tion of sea-sickness, serves to recall the
extraordinary career Ol her husband, the
late Prince Luuis of Loewensf-in-Wer?
. heim, who succumbed to an American
: bullet in the Philippines.
The prince, when he marued Lady
Anne Savile in the spring of Mgf, sorely
against the wishes of her family, was
the younger and penniless son of a
by no mean* wealthv mediatized house
of Oermany : one of those houses that
exercised petty sovereignty until the
overthrow of I he Holy Roman Empire,
and which retains to this day the right
of mating on a footing of equality with
the reigning dynasties of the Old World. I
Nor did the match meet with the ap- >
proval of the prince * relatives owing 1
to the f ar ? that Lady Anne s mother '?
came of the Jewish race having been a
Miss Elizabeth Raphael. It is. in fact, i
by reason of this that the widowen prin- i
cess makes h"r home in England, and
has nfver attempted to secure presenta?
tion at the courts of Vienna or Berlin.
The prince, prior to his marriage,
being almost penniless and heavily in
debt, had placed himself under very
deep obligations to a species of mar?
riage brokers, who not only brought
about in an absurd way his acquaint- i
ance with Lady Anne, but also financed
him during the entire period of his (
courtship. Having failed to fulfill ;
these obligations, the brokers thereupon
commenced a campaign against him
of a bla' kmailing churacer. For they
had managed to obtain a number of
exceedingly compromising secrets of
one kind and another concerning the I
prir.ee. calculated to involve him in no ;
end of legal difficulties of the gravest ?
character. He at length appealed in
desperation to his father-in-law, the
? old Earl of Mexborough. for money to
settle with his persecutors. But the ,
peer, who had never been favorable to
the match from 'he outset, who dis?
liked him, not only on general princi?
ples, but likewise for his un-English
manners, and for the way in which he>
i neglected his wife, drove him from his ,
presence, expressing bitter regret that
Lady Anne should be married 10 such
I a man
The prince thereupon found :t well
to leave Europe auietly. in order to
avoid legal proceedings of an unpleas?
ant nature ard the brokers thereupon
set to work to advertise for his where?
abouts, not only in the English, but j
also In the foreign, press Lady t
Anne very chivalrously took up the j
j cudgels in behalf of her truant hus?
band, and insisted that the people!
hunting for him were disreputable
blackmailers. But the circumstance j
? remains thai the prince left her after)
.only a very few months of marriage. ,

There he became identified with those
nondescript F ir.'pean adventurers who
assisted Aguinaldo in his insurrection ?
against the Cnited States. On several
