Isadora Duncanís Prosperity

Isadora Duncan must be very prosperous, if what I have just heard is correct. I am told that the classic dancer from our fair city has just paid a million francs for the Chateau de Bearn at St. Cloud near Paris. This is an old castle which was famous in the time of Louis XIV as the home of Maximilian, Elector of Bavaria. At present it is in a very dilapidated state, and Miss Duncan will have to spend a lot of money on it before it is habitable. I hope Isadora will be very happy in her chateau. But think what a lot of money she must have made if she is able to pay $200,000 for a home! Her pink tootsies have been a gold mine, so to speak. However, the price may be quoted in terms of stage money.
