Is a strong, vigorous woman, with snow
whlt6 hair, dark eyes, with much of the
native wit In tho corners of her deter
mined mouth. She has written since she
was 18, years old. With her brilliant
husband, who is said to have been the
original of Worthington In Thackeray's
"Pcndenuts," sho has always had tho so
cloty of thinkers. Ho was a strong antl
consci vath a long before tho Republican
party camo in power. Intimate with its
leaders, Mrs. Crawford had a rich fund
of 'anecdote to draw ujkhi when thoy as
sumed tho reins of government, and bet
letters have always been widely quoted.
Her woi k, bowover, had been insepara
ble from that of her husband until hit
death iu 1WJ3, when sho assumed his po
sition, which sho retains vjfth a strength
that is universally recognized. Tho Lou

sho has Ikmii noorrcspnmlciitof Tho Now

crally, much mora ho than American
nowapaorH, who in turn pay Iwttor than
the Frcnoh press. In all probability Mrs.
Crawford commands tho highest salary
of any woman journalist.
"What do you think of Journalism as
a profession for womenf' was asked Mrs.
Crawford as sho sat in hor pleasant
salon, on whoso walls hang her portrait
painted when she was 81, by Taguaulul,
who perpetuated the beauty of many
Amorican belles iu his "Nino Muses," at
the Metropolitan museum.
"Well, I should ray the first requisite
was a giant constitution," was tho reply.
"A woman of dollcato physlquo may do
good work by spoils, but the ceaseless
grind of tho regular Journalistic life re
quires tho strongest constitution. I know
I could never havo omlurod what I havo
had I less physlquo. Tboro is no raco bo

ford has tho strongth of a vigorous man
"To illustrato that a strong physlquo
is a woman's chlof requisite in journal
Ism," she continued, "I will tell you In
cidents in my career, Tho visit of tho
shah to Paris in 1870 caused great excite
mont. Tho Nows did not awaken to its
Importance. Wo had no regular tele
graphic communications thun, and thoy
neglected to provide them for tho occa
sion. My husband could think, reason,
but ho had not that quick, deft pen tho
dash requisite for dcscrlptlvo work. I
saw that tho most interesting facts about
thu visit would bo lost, and dotormlned
to see what I could do.
"On the morning of tho day thntr a
breakfast was given to tho shah at Ver
sailles, I rose at 0 o'clock, hastened to
tho station and mado for tho palace;
gained admittance, saw all tho ceremc
nlos, after which I discovered that only
800 words could lo wired from Versailles
and that tho lino was engaged. I re
turned to Paris, Bocured admission to tho
palace of tho Elysoos, wont homo, dressed
and attended tho ball that night. It was
long past midnight when I got homo.
I Bald to my husband: 'Sit up and watch
tlio clock. When tho hand is at U waken
me.' Too fatigued to undress, I threw
myself on tho bed in my ball dress and
slept liko u top. My husband called mo
at tho appointed hour. I rose, and bo
fore 7 o'clock noxt morning mailed two
columns to Tho Daily Nows. It ap
peared tho following morning, and was
more accurato and interesting than any
thing that had bocn wired. I recollect
another occasion," said tlio journalist:
"thu assembly at Versailles, when It was
thought that tho republic of Franco
would bo abolished tho assembly that
elected MaoMahon. Tho day before tho
assembly, M. Thiers said to mot 'Mrs.
Crawford, you havo always been my
friend. I would liko to havo you pres
'"How can I, M. Thiers? I replied.
'Tho Conservatives hate mo.'
" 'Como early,' ho said; 'I will havo
a seat provided for you in a logo.' Tho
loges were llttlo lattlco cages perohod
high on tho walls. I took a train for Ver
sailles at 5 o'clock that morning and found
tho logo reserved for mo. It was 7 in tlio
morning when I entered it, and I remained
there without food until 11 o'clock that
night. It was noon before my husband
found admittance. Ho camo to mo whoro
I Bat In my lattlco box, my noso pressed
against tho bars. 'Como out,' ho Bald;
'you will certainly dlo.' 'No I won't,'
I replied. 'AH I ask is to bo left alone.'
I did not niako u slnglo noto. I had not
a scrap of paper. Tho noxt morning by
earliest train I sent over two columns to
Loudon, the wholo written entirely from
memory. Of courso I know the leading
men of Iwth parties. I was familiar with
tho questions at issue, which was an aid
to tho memory of that day's proceedings.
During tho Commune tho house in which
wo lived was jwirtly destroyed by boml
shells from St. Cloud, But, undaunted,
wo remained. Indeed, I becamo Inscnsl
blo to danger, as I have become Indiflfor-
ent to tho luxuries of life. It is ono of
tho recompenses of journalism."
Tho next invader was an American
Mrs. Luoy Hooper born and reared in
Philadelphia, of wealthy parents. Mrs.
Hooper had always a ponchant for writ
ing, and in 1873, when tho Boston flro
swept away hor inheritance, sho took up
tho pen as a defense against necessary
want. Sho was interested in Tho Lippiu
cott Magazlno when it was llrst es
tablished, and bad written fugitive
pieces. Intrusted with tho correspond
ence of Tho Applcton Journal and Phila
delphia Press, sho camo to Paris sixteen
years ago. Sho afterward liecamo associ
ated with Tho Philadelphia Telegraph,
for which sho writes continuously, to
gether with Tho at. Louis Post-Dispatch.
"Mr. Pulitzer Is ono of tho kindest em
ployers that I havo over had," said tho
oldest and best known American corre
spondent. Thoro is no royal road to
news, and Mrs. Hooper has met with no
unusual obstacles in her calling. "I havo
mot with only tho greatest kindness and
consideration from tha French," said Mrs.
Hooper, "Thoy aro always ready to aid
a woman if thoy seo that sho is sincere.
Tho foreign press havo not the privileges
of the Parisian journalists. Thoy ate
never given tickets to theatres. During
tho exposition, however, every courtesy
was shown by thu Parisian press. Tho
American commission, on tho contrary,
did absolutely nothing,
"You cannot approach ofllclaU iu
France as you do In America," said Mrs.
Hooper. "I recollect a young lady who
camo ovor hero como years ngo to report
for an American journal. Tho ilrst thing
sho wanted to do was to interview Gam
betta. Sho thought that all that was
necessary was to ring tho door bell and
sho would bo admitted into tho presence
of tho deliverer. But the French have
broadened in latter years," Bald the vet-

Boston, Feb. 20. Two veterans of tho
civil war kuep bachelors' hall in a protty
Now England town. Both aro heroes,
but both aro modest; so, out of respect
for their feelings, thoy will bo designated
hero as Federal Capt. Thomas and Con
federate Capt, Williams. Thoy had been
college chums, and tho threu week's pro
ceding tho firing of tho first shot at
Charleston wcro spent by Williams at
thu homo of Thomas tlio samo home
whero Williams now does tho carving,
because his host has but ono arm, and
whero Thomas does most of tho walking,
because his guest has hut ono leg. As
soon as it was certain that war was in
evitable tho friends separated and went
to the front, ono donning tho bluo and
tho other the gray.
Tho war was nearly ovor when thoy
first met as foes. It was on tho field of
ouo of tho terrible last battles. Early In
tho fight Thomas, who had becomo n
captain of infantry, had his right arm
shattered by a fragment of a shell that
oxplodcd above his head. In his excite
ment lie did not porcolvo how serious
his wound was, but simply placed the
wounded mombor in a sling mado of his
handkerchief, took his sword in his left
hand and dashed to tho front again.
Tlio battlo grow hot and furious. A po
sition at first held by tho Confederates
was usurped by Capt. Thomas and his
company, who, by their audacity, wore
drawing a heavy flro from tho inon in
gray. For a quarter of an hour thoy
woro unablo to advance ono inch, and
wero constantly chargod by a reckless
company of cavalry, led, Capt. Thomas
Boon perceived, by his friend Williams.
Presently ono of theso charges proved
disastrous to tho Confederate captain.
Ho fell from his horso midway between
tho opposing forces and lay motlonlesf
In mi extremely dangerous spot, where
hells from a distant part of tho field
wero dropping ovcry minuto. Capt.
Thomas saw that his friend was still
alivo, and mado up his mind in an Instant.
"Como on, boys," he shouted, and
dashed forwurd, followed by his men.
Fivo men fell bcfoio thoy had advanc
ed fifty yards. Still shouting encourag
ingly to his followers, Capt, Thomas ran
to whero his wounded friend lay, raised
him to his shoulder and darted toward a
largo rock which offered shelter from
tho flying shells and bullets. The rock
was only a dorcu paces distant, but ouco
a shell burst almost tit his feet, covering
both with dirt. When tho coveted place
of safety was reached Capt. Thomas col
lapsed. A little later ho was found by
his victorious comrades lying insensible
beside tho man whoso life he had saved.
Capt. Thomas carried away the stump
of nn arid nud Capt. Williams tho stump
of a log as Wi venire of tho light; and
when tho war was over thoy laughingly

In which tho celebrated Russian physician,

remained day and night at tho patient's bed
side, and succeeded, after a hard struggle
with death, in saving the thou czarowitch.
Alexander II was deeply grateful, and asked
tho doctor to choose something with which
ho might rccoiniicuHu him. Dr. Ilotkln re
plied: "Your majesty, I do not wunt any
