NEW YORK, Nov. 23. While high
priced physlclana and nurses hover
near In soft-footed attention, a $100,-
000,000 baby probably the richest
mite of humanity in all the world-
lies cooing today in the Fifth avenue
home of Mr. and Mrs. James B. Duke.
It's a girl and the little stranger
reached the home of the tobacco king
late yesterday. The father is fifty
seven years old and claims to be tho
happiest man In the country today.
The mother, formerly Mrs. Nanallne
Ionian, of Atlanta, is some yoars
younger, but none the lest happy.
Duke's Fortune Is $100,000,000.
The fortune of James B. Duke Is con.
Mtvattvoiy. wtlmMM nt tlt0.itU,uf-, ai.tl
It Is still trowing, for the army of
smokers Is Increasing. If these figures
are approximately correct, little Mlsa
Duke Is heiress to more millions than
the McLean Daby, the Vandcrbllt baby
or others whose names stand high in
the list of the country's wealthiest chil
dren. James n. Duk. with all his wealth,
has desired most of all an heir. He
has always been fond of children even
when they belonged to other cople.
Ills Joy knows no bounds toduy, now
that a long desired event has taken
place In his own household.
Babe Born in Luxury,
No child of royal blood ever came
Into the world amid more comfortable
and luxurious surroundings than tho
daughter of the Dukes. The magnifi
cent Fifth avenue mansion was turned
Into a private hospital; no expense was
spared In obtaining the beat physicians
and nurses, and the baby's layette rep
resented the outlay of a small fortune.
The great wish of a millionaire's heart
was to be gratllled. and no preparations
were overlooked. .
James V. Duke la to tobacco what
John D. Rockefeller Is to oil. The
Immense Rockefeller fortune while un
doubtedly larger than that of Duke's -eventually
will be apportioned among
several cnuaren ana grandchildren, rne
money of the tobacco king will some
day belong solely to the baby now less
than twenty-four hours old provided,
of courae, the stork brings no one clso
to snare it.
Exceeds McLean Wealth.
Within the past few years a number
of rich babies have been born. Little
Miss Duke probably will be at the held
of the Hat of those who arrived with
a "illvcr spoon In the mouth."
1'dward Vinson McLean, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Edward Beale McLean, of
Washington, Is considered u sthe heir
today to tho combined McLean and
Walsh fortunes, exceeding, perlmpt
M.0Oi,000. The son of Mr. und Mis.
William K. Vsnderbllt. now two months
old. Is the heir to the w),O(lO,0OO of this
branch of the Vandcrbllt family. John
Nlrholis Brown, of Newport, was a
flOOOO.ono baby at Its birth, the last
representative of the Rhode Island
Browns. When he reaches the ige
of tweno-cne It Is estimated his for
tune, augmented by the demise of rel
atives and natural Increase, will nave
reached the total of t.000,ooi'.
Wealth of Astor Heir.
John Jacob Astor, fith, son of one of
the heroes of tho Titanic, and Mrs.
Madeline Force Astor, was boin Augus;
14, und is neir to h,iu, omninu, wi
the terms of his father's will.
The thiee ehlldien of William Ran
dolph Hearst, the publisher, will hive

of Mrs pnjeoo nearsi, imcir sruuu
mnther). and' Ihelr ratlier.
Thn HAVArAl crandchlldrcii of Mrs.
Levi 7,. Leltcr, of Washington will also
come Into fortunes .oveniuuiiy which
will mairn them millionaires.
The Duke baby, latest addition to the
select circle of millionaires of the fu-

Duke mansion, and may grow up to be
as attractive as het 'mother, who was a

feared that the peace negotiations that are going forward
would be checked by a general European clash. The people-
