It Is owing to the fact that Marie

of noble birth, that her grandson.
Prince Stanislas Su'kowski. although
a lieutenant of the Second Regiment
of Austrian Dragoons, is excluded
from the enjoyment of that titular
office of chamberlain which carries
with it the entree to the court of
Vienna, and which is the birthright
of evory Austrian BOMa who can show
an exclusively blue-blooded ancestry

so many people teem to believe, a Po?

dignity, dating from the middle of
the eighteenth ueBtStV. when It wa
bestowed upon Count Alexander Jo?

I., along with the title of Prince or
the Holy Roman Empire, for all Ms
children. Much of the property owned
by the Sulkowskis belonged to King
Stanislas Deszlnsky, and the estates
of the present duke comprise the en?
tire town of Blelitz. a prosperaus
trading centre of Eastern Austria,
with a population of about 40.0011. be?
