KveiMhlng w.-nt well for a time The
Co ml M-vtii'.d to have iibtalne.l vvllh
his wife some of her family's financial
talent. Last autumn, however, the
Count and his associates failed to see
tho financial storm which was brewing
as the result of the llalka.i war and th

and the unsettled lnterfi.itlon.il situa

) the Count and his friends became In- '
' teiested, but their experts having re.
j ported that they were of little value I
they sold theni ton private firm. Count '
I Szectienyl and his fi lends then secured!
an option on them on the strength of u
I report made by llelglnn engineers that j
I the property at n conservative estimate
was worth $100,000 000. I
The Count tried to Interest local
financiers of itiidapest, but they, know
I Ing the report of the railway com
, pony's experts, refused to come In. The
I Count, lelylng on the report of the
llelglnn. Is said to have Interested
.among others the big firm of Defav
K Sepule of Rrussels, who Invested
$,000,000, The Count nnd his friends
Invested ii similar amount and from
other soutros $1,, "00, ooo capital was

cently Count Szeehcnyl Is said to have
concluded that he had been swindled.
At the time of the marriage of Count
NY.echon.vl lo Gladys Vanilorhllt It was
aald thai she brought him Ili00,000
but that this fortune was so vunrdoil
that the Count could not touch It.
Hv the will of Cornelius Vandorbllt
Miss Gladys received tho Income nf

and tho will clearly specified that only
the Income could bo touched, This was

permitted lo accumulate since that date,
It would represent lo-iUy nl the rale of

ooo, Kven If the Countess had placed
her purse nf her husband's disposal, It
seems therefore Improbable that he
could have lost l.ooo.floo nf her money.
(in Hie other hand, It has been said
Ihat the Count's fortune, which never
was gtcit, was invested In securities
which have greatly decreased In valua
since the beginning of the Balkan war.
