THE WORK OF A WOMAN Bemarkable Business Experience French Lady. WHAT FEMALE PLUCK CAN.DO. A Plebian Woman who Personally Con ducted one of the Largest Cham pagne Establishments in the World.—How she made a Success. The thousands of people in Denver and throughout ims couutry generally, who have drauk Pounnory Sec Champagne were probably uot aware ot the fact that the Pommery estab lishment. which Is one of the largest wine con cerns in France, was run by a woman. It has been for some years managed by Mrs. Poin mery herself, who died a short time ago at ivlieiins. .she was in many respects a very re markable woman and accumulated a fortune, which at her death exceeded 20,000.000 francs. Her husband, who at the head of the firm of Pommery & Greuo founded the present bouse, died several years before the Frunco-Prusstan war aud left the business in tho hands of his widow. She proved much more successful than he had been. She made herself familiar with the details of the business and personally di rected the entire establishment. She gained a fortune by a single bold stroke (luring the war. When the situation was darkest tor France she bought up ail the grapes she could get and mane wine when her competitors were doing little or nothing. She practically controlled the champagne market for a year or two. Her business grew fast from that time on, and, with the assistance of an efficient mana ger named Vasnier. she made money rapidly. See did not own or control extensive vine yards, but bought grapes and wiues lu the mar ket. Her success was mainly due to her skill in blending wines. She selected wines of four varieties—one for body, oue lor sweetness, one for taste, and one for smell. These she blended in such porportlons as the popular taste of the country for which the wine was designed de manded. So It lmppeued that the wTne from her house drunk in *010 country, would differ somewhat from the wine under similar labels used in another. Shu made a study 01 national tastes, aud the result was profitable. In order that a poor vintage in anylyear should not affect the quality of her wines slie usually carried a stock of 6,000,600 or 7,000.000 bottles. Mine. Pommery was princely in her charities, most of which were local. As a patron of art she was also well known- She was the envied possessor ol Millet’s "The Gleanors,” which she purchased for 4O0.O00 francs. This masterpiece she lias bequeathed to the Museum ot the Louvre. France Is a great country in many respects but many of its alleged receut discoveries were old lu China centuries ago, especially those pertaiuiug to medicine. It is undoubtedly true that Oriental physicians have many strange se crets of medlclues. some of which have beou handed down fo. ‘housands of years, which are unknown to the doctors of the west, aud hence it is not strange tbu» gun wa’s medicine, natures medicines, are proving so dtllcacious.
