Paris, March 9.-1 all ages devout Catholics have bequeathed legacies of different size and description to popes, cardinals and archbishops, but it is safe to say that ;no prelate was ever more thoroughly astounded than the Archbishop of Paris hen he awoke some time ago to find himself the pos sessor of a celebrated racing stable. "I beg pardon lor intruding," Mon seigneur Amette's secretary came into the archbishop's study with an air of much perturbation one morning, "but a lady, the Viscountess de .Raineville, has just died and has left her fortune of several millions . to your excel lency.".' :" "What .is this, my friend? ."Surely there is some mistake," the archbishop turned abruptly In his chair. "I never even heard of the lady." "That may be," the secretary ad mitted deferentially, "but the fact is that your excellency is the sole heir of thi3 legacy which Includes a well known racing stud." - .... . . "Ah, of course you mean that this legacy was left to the church to be distributed among the poor under my . direction." 'v-,. But when Monseigneur Amette un derstood that, the legacy was left to him personally and not to the church, lie refused to accept it. But just after his secretary had left the archbishop ric to communicate Monseigneur Am ette's decision to the executors of the will, word came that- the court had ratified the bequest, so there was noth ing to do but to accept the legacy, in cluding the embarrassine item of the race horses. , . '-Q';';v.j'-, ; Of course the archbishop immediate ly gave orders for the sale of the stud, also" of the viscountess' properties, comprising much real estate, a breed ing farm and a historic chateau at Al lonville in Normandy. The legacy con verted into cash wiljbe used for vari ous charitable organizations. , ' " If theaugust and unwilling owner of race-track favorites fancied that he coma wasn nis nanas or proprietary duties1 so easily, he soon discovered his mistake. His man of affairs soon came to him with a complication. The horses were to be put up at auction at a big establishment in the rue de Ponthieu. But some critics had pointed out to this man of affairs that the autcioneer was a Jew. Was this a serious enough consideration to war rant the Intervention of the arch bishop? It evidently -waff, for a few days later the honor of auctioning the stud was awarded to a rival establish ment where the sale is to take place shortly. The collection consists of twenty, five horses and by a curious coinci dence the De Raineville jockeys have always worn violet the archbishop's color. During the last years of her life the Viscountess, an old lady in her seven-, ties, had very naturally not taken as much interest in the horses as her hus band had done. He was a staunch royalist deputy and his wile was ap parently a strong sympathizer with his anti-republican ideas, for she de lighted in giving names which were caricatures of prominent governmental personalities, to her horses. Clemen ceau was transformed into Clcmen cette and Caillaux became Caillaut ette. Because of the Viscountess" lack of interest in race track triumphs or defeats, very few of the horses which will be auctioned are particularly cele- j bratedj although former victories of the De Raineville stable are still re membered in SDortine circles. Slnc her husband's death the Viscountess paid more attention to the breeding of horses rather than to races. Her farm at Alton ville was one of the best in France, and many of the de Raine ville foals were sold during the sum- mer season at the fashionable resort, Deauvllle. i How did it happen that a woman of' such wealth left her great fortune. to the archbishop? The only member of her Immediate family still livine was: a sister whom she had not spoken to nor seen for many years because of some family difficulty. There were a few .distant cousins, nenhews and' nieces, but Mme. de Raineville had ' held herself aloof from, all relatives for a long time. She had cut herself off not only from her relations, , but irom her circle of friends at one time so large. The greater part of the year she lived in 'solitary state at her cha teau, and when she visited her, Paris apartment no detail of her dailv ron.i tine was changed. Her way of living was a matter of conjecture to former friends and acquaintances. - She re ceived ho one but her confessor, the Abbe Riviere, and for several vearn before her death she seldomjefther room, she never ate anything but the Plainest of roods chiefly cereals and milk which were served to her on a tray in her high-canopied bed. , How ever, aS a reminder of those ceremo nious repasts of other days, her but ler always arranged a table near by, set ; with costly damask and heavy piate, ana served a full course dinner to a couple of empty chairs. Two years ago Mme. de Raineville deposited $$200,000 with an Insurance company the money to bo paid out in annuities of $14,000. She lived on this and the income from her various properties was devoted largely to char ities. Considering her eccentric iso lation from friends and family and her absorbing interest in the church.Jt is not surprising that the archbishop found himself heir to her millions racing stable included.
