TIk story r.f PrlrXh do Fels Is an
extremely amusing r,ne His father,
whose mother's name was Fels. Is of
Alsatian origin, and was plain Frisch
by name. While serving as a reporter
on some of the 'boulevard" pipers in!
Paris. Frisch managed to attract the
notice and then to win the hind and'
fortune of one of the heiresses of the!
great sugar refiner Lebaudy, sister of

known as "le petit Sucrlcr"! and of
that eccentric Individual who now
makes his home In New York. Jacques

Soon after marrying Mile. Lebaudy,
Frisch obtained the title of Count
Frisch de Fels from the Vatican. A
number of years later the count, who.
though Alsatian, had always claimed
to hail from Marseilles, purchased in
Luxemburg, an estate and an old
l ruined chateau called Fels, which ac?
cording to an-lent tradition was once
ow nod by a duke.
lie had the chateau restored, talked
> about U as his ancestral home and
j carried Impudence so far as to tell
! his guests when showing them over
the place, "You cannot conceive my
emotion when I for the first lime re
entered this former home of my family,
which It had quitted 900 years ago."
He even dared to assume for a time
the title of Puke of F?ls. this time
quite without Papal authority, but was
quietly advised by his friends to drop
it when be sought to attach himself
to the Royallst partv hv means of
lavish subscriptions to the so-called
"campaign fund." He remains Count
Frisch de Fels, however, by virtue of
his Papal patent, dated 1S77.
One of his principal claims to famoj
is his encounter and bloodless duel
with tho late Premier Waldcck-Rous- !
