ROYAL LOVE ROMANCES. It is reported from Geneva that the" simple, life has destroyed the love romance of Leopold: Woelfling, who renounced his title as Archduke Leopold Ferdinand of Austria to marry Wilhel- mina Adamovitch, a postman's daughter and. actress. The ex-Archduke is said to be about to start proceedings for a separation, but his- lawyer, M. Lachenal, is trying to restore peace between the parties, and hopes to bring them together again. Herr Woelfling has left his; wife in the villa on Lake Zug, where they had lived since his flight from Dresden with his. sister, the Crown Princess of Saxony, four years ago, and has gone for a time to the Riviera. Frau Woelfling was attracted by the simple life colony at Ascona, in the canton of Tessein, and became a strict fruitarian and vegetarian. To this extent she converted the ex-Archduke to her views. He even permitted, his beard and hair to grow long to please her. Then she discarded all finery, wrapped herself in a sort of sack, wore sandals, went bare- headed, and took sun baths. She refused to have any servants in the house, and in other ways adopted the strange habits of the care- dwellers of Ascona. This proved too much for Herr Woelfling. He declined to throw over- board all civilisation to humour his wife, and there were constant quarrels. M. Giron, the tutor who eloped with the former Crown Princess of Saxony (now the Countess Montignoso) has been married at Ip Brussels to Mile. Braem, a pretty Belgian girl. The marriage was celebrated with great pomp. It is said that the couple received a congratu- latory telegram from Countess Montignoso. The Countess, it will be remembered, after eleven years of unhappy married life as Crown Prin- cess of Saxony, fled to Geneva four years a>o with M. Giron, her children's French tutor. The couple separated soon afterwards.
