The "Victomte de Fronsae'- styles

that has for its president no less a
personage than Prince Augustin de

Waahington. D. C. but who has never
to my knowledge belonged to the old
Canadian aristocracy. For several
years past this "Victomte de Fronsae"
has bt>en flooding the United States
with circulars calling upon well-to-do
American citizens to become members
of bis "Aryan and Selgneurial Order."'
This order, an invention I understand
of the victomte. Is, according to tne
terms of his circulars, "truly historic.**'
since he claims it was founded by
"Emperor Charles of Germany and
Spain in 1540, when he erected Ameri?
ca into a fief of his empire, and con?
ceded the first Aryan and setgneurtat
subinfeudation of the Duchy 01 Vera-'
gua to Colon, the grandson of Chris?
topher Columbus." M de Fronsae ac?
cords to those who Join this order the
right to wear the Insignia thereof,1
consisting of "an enameled cross of
St. Louis, having four maple leaves la,
colors between the four arms. In Its,
centre a shield impaling France and
Si otland, with the lion crest of Uta
Brit.sh Empire above the crown, with
the mott? T>teu et mnn droit' below;
the shield.'' This Is to be worn sus- j
pended around the ne- k bv a blue rib?
bon, and In the case of tne represen-,
tatlves of the seignctirial families of
Canada, there is an additional clasp,
with the words "Seiitneur of Canada-"!
Of course, the unfortunate patricians
who are merely American citiseas of
ancient lineage will have to dispense,
with the precious clasp.
The "Victomte de Fronsae" make*!
no secret of the fact that both his
order and his selgneurial court, as well
as his college of arms, are frowned
upon by the authorities in Canada, and,
above all by the former and present'
Governors-General, and be refers to
them as "politicians and aSlceboMers." ]
