International politician and once R 'mighty statesman, ex-C/ar Ferdinand of Bulgaria lies seriously ill at CoburK, Germany. And all Europe awaits with mixed feeling the final chapter in the story of one of ihc most romantic figures of modern times. His Is a strange and tangled I slory that Involves almost every' country on the continent. life father was Prince Augustus of Coburg, a general in the o!d Austrian army. His mother was princess dlememine of Orleans, daughter of King Louis Philippe of Prance. As a Coburg he was rc- lo the royal houses of Eng- and Belgium, and ihe former ! oyal houses of Portugal and Bra- vlL As a Bourbon, he. had kin- ihlp lo the former royal house of France, and, incidentally, to the Bourbon-HaDsburgs of Spain. Made King by, Dictator Ferdinand was born In Vienna In 1881. and had become an officer in the Austro-Hungarian army by the time the former Turkish province of Bulgaria achieved semi-independence and started chopping around for 3 ruler. Prince Alexander o| Bauenburg was selected first, but was soon klrkftd out under pressure of the great 'powers. Then Stambuloff, dictator-premier of Bulgaria, decided that Ferdinand would make a nice, pliable puppet for the Bui- gar throne. • Stambuloff lived ana aied regretting that choice. For Ferili- iiand was nobody's tool. No other obscure European prince ever employed audacity, craft find political acumen to raise himself to .srrh heights. Anil in making himself, he incidentally made the Bulgarian nation. •With a wary eye on the great powers, Ferdinand set about improving his adopted country. New railways were built as links with line rest of Europe. Commerce |nnd agriculture took a spurt. Sofia rebuilt into a handsome little Capita!. And a nowerfnl army came being. Those things done, rdinsnd traveled about seeking English or German royal bride. Maybe his tremendous nose, adding .to his fox-like appearance )mmrwed his cause: anyway, lie inel 'only repulses. Finally, in 1893 lie 1 'married Princess Marie Louise of Parma, and to them was born Boris, the present Bulgarian king . • Premier Assassinated While all this was uoing on Ferdinand was still hampered by Ih* presence of Premier Slambn- lolf. One day, though, when the liifter offered one of his many liluffing resignations. Ferdinand ealmlv accented it. The ex-Premier ti)en bitterly attacked the Prince In the press, bm was silenced year laler bv belli? brutally assas- ijlnated. Nobody ever was able to show that Ferdinand had anything I ,to do'with the deed. i '"In 1908 the Prince took another! ilarinj step. He declared the cnun- comn'ete Independence from [Turkey and pel himself up as the ICrar of Bulgaria. It is still one 1 of'the wonders of the diplomatic I world that the World War didn't Ibreak out then and there, instead lof'si" years later. Mobilization talk •was in the air.

In September, 1915. he signed a secret alliance with the Central Powers, cleverly deceiving the Allies by not withdrawing his private fortune from the Bank of England. Germany guaranteed to indemnify him for that loss, and that is the reason Ferdinand still draws a huge pension from Gcr- <nany and has lived in luxury at;. roburg. He always has loved luxury, too. He gathered a marvelous collcc- Mon of unset precious slones, and' was especially fond of his yellow j sapphires. He used to be a glutton i -r highly spiced food, and he was known to be intensely superstitious. Wlien he retired at night in his palace at Sofia, thirteen candles always burned about his bed to ward off evil. Ferdinand's dragging of his weary little country into another met with violent opiwsilton, and Siambouliski. leader of the '•r-.verful peasant party, reviled him tor the deed. Ferdinand clapped him in jail. But later, when revolution broke out in Bulgaria, Stambouliskl became Premier and saw Ferdinand scuttle out of the country, an old man with dreams of empire shattered.
