FANNY WARD OWNS
Gem of Misfortune Given Actress by
Franz Ferdinand of Austria, Whose
Murder Indirectly Precipitated the
A diamond studded watch, today one of
the most Interesting bits of Jewelry In the
world, associated with the world tragedy now
being enacted in Europe and so intricately as
sociated with assassination and violent death
as to make Its ownership uncanny, Is In the
possession of Fannie Ward, the aotress, who
will appear In "Madam President" at the
Broad, October 26. This wntch was given to
Miss Ward by Franz Ferdinand, whose death
has been the Indirect cause of plunging eight
nations Into war.
Every Hapsburg who handled this Jewel, It
Is said, has met death through assassination.
In the case of one of the principals It ts still
an open question as to whether he died by
his own hand or whether a jealous lover or
husband kilted him, and so deprived Fram
Joseph, of Austria, of a direct successor to the
Austrian throne. Crown Prince Rudolph, the
Empress Elizabeth of Austria and Frani
Ferdinand and his wife all owned this jewel
all met violent deaths.
"It remains to be seen whether the strange
fate which hangs over this Jewel through its
association with the Hapsburgs la broken,"
rays Miss Ward. "I believe tt has been In
doed, success haa marked my every effort
since the strange Jewel came Into my posses
sion, and I am fully convinced that Its evil
genius has departed."
While she was starring In "In the Bishop's
Carriage," In London, Miss Ward made the
acquaintance of the Archduke Franz Ferdi
nand, then heir apparent to the throne of
Austria-Hungary. One of Mlsa Ward's closest
friends Is Count Leopold Doultremont. a cousin
of the King of Belgium, whose late wife was
a sister of the Archduchess Isabella, of Aus
tria. Ono night he and a handsome, forceful
looking man witnessed her performance from
a box. Later, Doultremont sent word that he
desired to present a friend, whom he Intro
duced under his title of Archduke. They chat
ted pleasantly In Miss Ward's dressing room.
The Incident had passed from her mind until,
a few weeks later, she received a package
from Vienna containing the jeweled watch.
At the same time there came from Doultre
mont a handsome black pear' ring, which the
actress wears almost constantly,

from the Archduke assuring Miss Ward of the
pleasure ho had derived from witnessing her
performance nnd asking her acceptance of the
remembrnnco that he was sending her.
Three months later Mlsa Ward was startled to
receive a huriied note from the Archduko sny
Ing that he was In London for a. few hours
only, and It was Imperative that he see her
on a matter of Importance. The compelling
tone of tho note struck Miss Ward with rather
a Jnrrlng note, but in answer she sent word
that she would receive the Archduke at her
residence, 3 Berkeley Square, Immediately after
I "l havo come," he said, "to ask you to return
to mo the jeuol I sent you. No," he went on,
notlnjr"the look of surprise on Miss Ward's
face, "thr- question If, not one of its value, but
entliely of Its history, and If you nre brave
enough to keep It nftor you have hoard tho
tnle, then you may have it, but It Is only fair
to you to know what I myself have only JuBt
learned concerning the fatality that surrounds

my ceteem it uns the Jlrst thing that came at

smile, "that what seems like Its evil genius has
departed, for, you see, I am still untouched
by It. But It you have a woman's natural
supersitlons you moy not core to keep It, and
