AMERICAN PRESIDENT'S NIECE
JAILS HER NORLE HUSRANO Edith Van Buren Wouldn't Stand for the Unfaithfulness of the Gay Count Di Castelmenardo and He Is Sentenced to Three Months in Prison—Another American Girl's Rough Experience With a Title Ends With an Ugly Situation for the Titled Gent. NEW YORK, March 21—As a re sult of the complaint made by the Countess di Castelmenardo against her husband, he has been convicted on the charge of unfaithfulness and sentenced to imprisonment for three months. The countess comes from the very best of American old Dutch eto-ok. She was Edith Van Buren, a grand niece of the eighth presi de:!, of the United States, a daugh ter of Gen. Thos. E Van Buren, who was once minister to Japan, and tbe kinswoman of relatives in the diplomatic service all over the ■world. It was in lPOft, while In Nice, that Edith Van Buren. who has a reputation for love of adventure end as a globe trotter, met and was wooed by the Italian noble, Count Vessiehio Gurga di Castelmenardo. She had passed her first youth, be ing then in her 35th year, but as the count was 10 years her senior, it was considered a suitable match. He not only is of a very old Naples family, but was also supposed to be rich, at variance in this respect from other noblemen who seek American wives. The couple were married the rame year at St. James' in London, came over to visit her relatives at the holiday time, and quarreled a short while afterward. The count went to live at the Holland House in this city, and at the time his countess was said to be very ill. This difference was patched up. to be quickly followed by others of a financial nature. When Mrs. Van Ruren, the moth er of the countess, died, she left her daughter the greater part of her estate. This was located in Tea neck. N\ J„ and was reputed to he valued at 0200,000. On two different oceosions the countess published notices in the newspapers that she would pay no debts "except those She herself had contracted." When the two made up she said that the advertisement was on account of the "stupidity of tradespeople." Long before she made her noble marriage Edith Van Buren prided herself upon her beauty, which was supposed to resemble that of the unfortunate Marie Antoinette. When 6he was a young girl, upon one of her early visit* to Paris she appeared at a fancy dress ball in the character of the mistress of Petit Trianon. She has been a fa orlte in Austrian court circles and ■was escorted at a garden party by Inland Cloak & Suit House SPECIALS FOR THURS DAY AND FRIDAY NEW SPRING SHIRTWAISTS Bpeclal for Thursday and Friday — Regular $1.75 and $2 00 walßt » $1.25 Don't forget all our goods are "MADE IN SPOKANE."
