on her and which caused him to
break his engagement to marry her.
'Sympathy for a lonely old man,

"Mr. Candler shall tell the world
that the slander of unprincipled men
is not the reason he has cast off the
woman whom he asked to be hie

Mrs. de Bouchele, whose announce
ment of her engagement to Candler
several months ago attracted na
tional attention, is typical of the
rreneh type. Her eyes are grayish
blue and her hair auburn. She is
wealthy and is said to have de
scended on both sides of her family
from the French aristocracy.
When Mrs. de Bouchele attended
the Confederate reunion in Atlanta
as chaperon-general, she related,
Candler entertained the ladles of her
court, sent them candy and flowers,
placed his automobile at their dis

"Those rugged elements of his
character, which enable him to rise
from a comparatively low station in
life to the height of financial stand

"While he did not have a back

"The most outstanding ruin which
confronts me today," she continued
after a pause, "is that the strong,
masterful personality is plastic,
molded into shape by the wills of

for the Utopia we had planned, but
he was overcome by the desires of

Left an orphan early in child
hood, in New Orleans, where she
was born, Mrs. de Bouchele attended
the Holy Cross and Ursuline con-
, vents there. Later she finished her
education at Notre Dame in Canada.
-.She then returned to New Orleans
as a reigniny beauty.
- After a marriage, which ended un
happily, she became convinced that
the "young man" is incapable of
' "fidelity to his marriage vows," she

"man-hater" until her engagement

Until she has conferred with her
attorney, Harry Gamble, whom she
. expected to arrive today, Mrs. de
Bouchele said she would be unable
to say definitely what court action,
; if any. would be taken.
Candler's only reply to her pub
i s h e d statements was issued
through his attorneys after he was
said to have left Atlanta yesterday.
; He asserted that confidential in-
formation given him by friends had
made marriage with Mrs. de Bou

will mean that we will be able to
