ANOTHER AMERICAN DUCHESS.
Fosalbllltie * of SacceMhm to the Xtacftl
Title of Newcastle.
Although the echoes of the sensa
tional episode of ex-Lieutenant Put
nam Bradlee Strong and. Lady Francis
Hope , better known as May Yohe , have
died away since the couple left San
Francsco | for Japan , there is much ,
curiosity felt at Newport as to what
action , if any , Lord Francis Hope will
take against his wife , and whether the
Duke of Newcastle , who is unalterably
opposed to divorce , will permit his
brother to sue for divorce. As the
duke holds the pursestrings , and Lord
Francis has not a penny of his own ,
the former will naturally have every
thing to say on the subject Added to
this curiosity tis a deal of speculation
as to the chances of May Yohe's esca
pade giving English societyt another
American duchess. The chances of the
Hon. Mrs. 'Charles Stapleton Pelham-
Ciinton , wlro nvas Miss Lizzie di Zerega
of New York , becoming the duchess of
Newcastle "would seem to le rather re- ,
mote , -experience lias proved that
heirs to English titles much further re
moved thanis Mrs. Pelham-Clintou' '
have reached them. Briefly summar-1
ized , Mrs. Pelham-CTinton's chances of
becoming the duchess of Newcastle de
pend .ipon Lord "Francis Hope's di
vorcing his present nvife , not marrying
again , or if he marries again , not hav
ing any children by his second mar
riage. The present duke has no" heir ,
and is not likely to have any. Lord
Francis Hope is similarly situated as
regards his present wife. The duke
dom , heirs failing to the present duke
and Lord Francis , will pass , if he sur
vives the duke and Lord Francis , to
the Hon. Charles Stapleton Pelham-
Clinton. their first cousin. Mr. and
Mrs. Pelfiam-Clinton have no children ,
have been married fifteen'years , and
are not likely to have any ; so that , if
they by chance should become the
Duke and Duchess o Newcastle , the
dukedom would pass in time to Mr.
Charles Pelham-Clinton's youngest
brother , who is unmarried. It would
be a coincidence of the next Duchess of
Newcastle would be an American , a
compatriot of the Duchesses of Man
chester and Marlborough. The Hon
Charles Pelham-Clinton is well known
in New York , where he lived : for nearly
ten years , and where be married. He
is an exceedingly tall , slightly built
swarthy and handsome man , and is
now about 42 years old. " During bis
life in New York he was actively en
gaged in newspaper work , and was one
of the best of the New York racing re

The Grande Chartreuse , I read , lias
sold the right of purveying its famous
liquors to a syndicate. Hitherto a lay

business. Until comparatively recent

Tils "place was difficult to fill. Hence ,
perhaps , the present arrangement.
Something of the kind had already
been under consideration. I bear the
price the Chartreuse asked is put at
80,000,000 francs. There are four va
rieties of the liquor , though only two
are familiar. There is the Elixir ,
which was once to be bought on the
spot in wood-cased bottles at the equiv
alent of Jfour-and-nine. There is the
Liquor Verte , in the pint-and-a-half
bottle , the local charge for which was
three-nnd-eight. and the charge in
London , say. four times that flgtire.
There is the Liquer Jaune , less potent ,
which has cost me two-and-six the reg
ulation flask , in the Chartreuse lodge.
And there is tne Liquer Blanche , oth
erwise the "Balm of the Chartreuse , "
which used to be locally retailed at the
same price as the Liquer Verte. Some
fifty plants , seeds and flowers , you are
to understand , go to the compilation of
these delectable drinks , the cbief being
the first shoots of the pine , mountain
pink , mint , balm , thyme , angelica and
wormwood. There is , in fact , a good
deal more absinthe in green Chartreuse

California's Great 1'rune Crop.
In California the prune industry has
made phenomenal strides within the
past few years. Twenty years ago it is
questionable if there existed a single
prune tree in the whole of that state ,
whereas now California is recognized
as the largest producer of prunes in the
world. At present about 73,000 acres
are given over to the cultivation of
prunes , and last year's prune crop
amounted to 150,000,000 pounds. Dur
ing the harvesting thousands of wom
en leave their domestic duties ( taking
with them their families ) to engage
actively in the sheds of the ranchers ,
cutting the fruit for drying after the
men have collected it from the trees.
Three Fruit Trees in One.
Theje is a remarkable tree in Lou

a few"of its branches , is apricot , while
other branches thereon are peach , and
still others plum. The three different
kinds of fruit have been gathered from
it tuis year.

The American market for champagne
varies less than in the case of other
foreign wines , though the importation
of last year was 200,000 dozens as
against 340,000 ten years ago. The
figure was exceptionally high ; last
year's importations were below the
average. The fluctuations which car
ried the importations down to 170,000
dozen in 1897 carried them up to 215-

In That Critical Time When a Girl Becomes

MISS BESSIE KELLOG.

Miss Bessie Kellog. President of the
Young Woman's Club , of Valley City ,
North Dakota , writes the following
from First street , South , Valley City ,
North Dakota :
"Ever since I matured I suffered with
severe monthly pains. The doctor did
not seem to understand what the
trouble was and the medicine he pre
scribed from time to time did not help
me. He finally suggested that I have
an operation. One of my friends who
had been cured of a similar affliction
through the use of Peruna , advised me
to give it a trial first , and so I used it
for three weeks faithfully. My pains
dimlshed very soon and within two
months I had none at all.
"This is six months ago , and during
that time I have not had an ache nor
pain. I give highest praise to Peruna.
Every woman ought to uss it , and I
feel sure that it would bring perfect
health. " BESSIE KELLOQ.
The experience of Miss Bessie Kel
log. of North Dakota , ought to be read
by every girl in the land. It is a critical
period in a woman's life when she
ceases to be a girl and becomes a wom
an. Very few pass through this period
without some trouble. The doctor is

on their troubles will probably never
be troubled with harps.
called and he generally advises an op
eration. Perhaps he will subject the pa
tient to a long series of experiments
with nervines and tonics. The reason
he does not often make a cure is be
cause he does not recognize the trouble.
In a large majority of the cases ca
tarrh of the female organs is the cause.
Peruna relieves these cases promptly
because it cures the catarrh. Peruna is
not a palliative or a sedative or a ner
vine or a stimulant It is a specific
for catarrh and cures catarrh wherever
it may lurk in the system.
This girl was lucky enough to find
Peruna at last. As she says , the doc
tors did not seem to understand what
the trouble was and the medicine he
prescribed from time to time did not
help her. Peruna hit the mark at once
and she is now recommending this
wonderful remedy to all the other girls
in the United States.
Thousands of the girls who look-at
her beautiful face and read her sincere
testimonial , will be led to try Peruna
in their times of trouble and critical
periods. Peruna will not fail them.
Every one of them will be glad and it
is to be hoped that their enthusiasm
will lead them to do as this girl did
proclaim the fact to the world so that
others may read it and do likewise.
Mrs. Christopher Fliehmann , Amster
dam , N. Y. , writes :
"I have been sick with catarrh of the
stomach and pelvic organs for about
five years , and had many a doctor , but
none could help me. Some said I would
never get over it. One day when I read
you almanac I saw those who had been
cured by Peruna ; then I thought 1
would try it. I did , and found relier
with the'first bottle I took , and after
two more bottles I was as well and
strong as I was before. " Mrs. Christo
