London newspapers are still "gossiping" about Princess Louise of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, reports the Chicago Daily Tribune. The estranged wife of Prince Philipp of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, eloped with Lt. Geza Mettachich. The "smart set" was much surprised when published statements noted that the Princess' allowance was only $1,600 a year, as her husband is said to be worth $4,000,000.
Princess Louise is living as Mme Leman, and there are reports she will come to America to join Donna Elivra, the daughter of Don Carlos de Bourbon, who eloped with Count Folchi, said to be a "cousin of Archbishop Folchi, Vice Chamberlain of the pontifical court."
