To SANCTUARY O SiMPi BLESSING OVER REMAINS I OF DUC DE CHAULNES. C t, PAPERS ARE BRUTAL ' Paris Press Not Only Recounts Esma pades of Dead Duke, but Recall the b Sad Story of His Mother, Princess Galitzin. Paris, April 25.-The body of the t duc de Chaulnes, who died suddenly l+ from heart failure at 11 o'clock Thurs. T day night in his bedroom in the Hotel r Langham, was conveyed at daylight this morning from the hotel to the E Church of St. Phillip. It was accom- f panied only by an undertaker and his I slisetants, and the due de Luynes, a cousin of the due de Chaulnes and the official head of the De Chaulnes household. The cure of the church' received the coffin at the door. It was escorted to the crypt and after a simple blessing there deposited. Early this afternoon the duchess went down to the Chautean de Pierre, accompanied by the due de Liuyes. The false reports that the due de Chaulness had died in his sister's apartmnents in the Rue Van Dyke arose from 'ie desire of the manage. ment of the Hotel Langham to make it appear that the death of the !ue 1 had not occurred in their establisl meat. Given Prominence. On account of the due de Chaulnes' connections with the old French no bility, the newspapers of Paris give much prominence to his tragic death., Some of them take no pains to spare the memory of the dea4 duke, not only piblishing the escapades, of his youth, but recalling the sad story of his mother, the beautiful Princess Galitain, who died miserably in a garret at Bellevue after a prolonged and sensational dispute with the aus tete 'Duchess de Chevreus over the possesselon 'of her children. They de scribe how the duke recklessly squap dered the fortune left him by his grandmother; and make' no attempt to gloen. over some of the methods "in which it is alleged he spent his patri mony. The Mdatin concludes its articles wiPh theap words: "The descendant of an illustrious favorite of Catherine de Medici at last. returned to France with a millionaire' wife. His creditors were gauch elated, only to find that the marriage had co curer" under a regime, of separation of property and that his personal for tune had not been augmented. Now comes this sudden death, and it is a pity, for at heart he was a good fel low. His American. wife is now a widow, but she is still the duchess de Chaulnes. Let us ho.pethat this title, whioh has weighed so heavily on per tain women of the younger branches of the Lynes, may be lightened for her." SHONTS IS SHOCKED. Eulogizes Dead Son-In-Law With Un stinted.. Praise. New York, April 25.-Theodore Sh'onts sailed for Europe today on the " steamer St. Louis to attend the fu neral of his son-in-law, the duc de Chaulnes. " 'The sudden death of the duke a comes as a terrible shock to us," said Mi. Shonts. "Only this morning three letters came from my daughter tell ing how. happy she and her husband were and full of plang for the future e and for thp duke's new work, which he was about to enter. I turned to Mrs. Shonts and said: 'Do you know, I think you were all wiser than I was about this young fellow. I am getting to like him and his grit more and more. , He is showing himself to be a real man and a good one. I like the stuff he is made of. He is as eager as an American to get down to bust t ness, and any man who can make a woman as happy as he is making The odors, I'd almost be willing to work for myself.'" INTERESTING FACTS.
