A London despatch says Grand Duke Adolph Frederick, who, after a reign of fewer than four years, committed suicide, like Ludwig, v.-aK one of the most cultured sovereigns of Germany. His talents, handsome appearance, splendid horsemanship (he was famous as a long-distance rider), and reputation for courage made Mm the beau Ideal of German Princes, and great things were expected of him when he ascended the throno just before the outbreak of the great war. For a. time lie fulfilled the hopes entertained for him. Ho served brilliantly in 11115 with Von Macken-sen in Serbia, being the first ofiicer to cross the Danube, anil was credited with storming Fort Elizabeth almost, singlehaiided. Just what were the "sad experiences" which kept him in retirement during the last two years, and. as the despatch suggests, led to his suicide, are yet to be rovealed. It i was persistently reported in 19131 that he was engaged to marry Prln-1 cess Patricia of (lonnaught, daughter of the Duke of Connaught, lato j governor-general of Canada. The j shattering of "Princess Pat's ro-! mance" by the war was a popular j topic in the gossipy English weelc-' lies some time ago. anil inny.pos-1 sibly be a clue to the mysterious suicide of the Grand Duke. His grandmother, who died recently, the ; Matriarch of European Royalty, was ! born an Knglish Princess, firs,t coufiin i of Queen Victoria, and through thisj connection Grand Uuke Adolph was on intimate terms with the British Royal | family and had a host of friends In England. ] Grand Duke Adolph while :J:iil i heir to the throne was one of the most �� successful of German explorers in Af-i rlca, serving as governor of the German colonies in West Africa and as Consul-General to various English dependencies, j * * * Lieut-Gen.
