lt lins so often been slated that
.'women know no tb lng ol* business,*'
that it has come to bo accepted as a
truism by unthinking people. Yet
hundreds of business men owe not a
little ol' their success to cool-headed,
sagacious wives. A frequent modifi
cation ol'the first statement is thal
"women excel in small economics, bul
are unable to grasp huge business
enterprises," or if thov do they become
masculine ami lose that gracious
femininity which is (lie principal
charm ol' VOIP.m. The utter (nisi ty ol'
theso statements is nowhere more
Strikingly shown than in the case ol'
Mrs. Frank Leslie. With executive
ability, capacity *or work ami news
paper goulus possessed by lbw men,
she proservos till tho charin of her
womanhood and is as popular in tho
social as iii tho business world. Through
the loree ol' hoi" own personality, she
is at once one of tho most attractive as
well ns most important flgui'OS in tho
profession of journalism. For Mrs.
Leslie was a journalist, and a good
one loo, before -he became the head ot
the great publishing house which boars
her name In the management of her
ten publications, employing '!<>() edi
tors, artists, engravers, printers and
others, Mrs. Leslie lins displayed tho
very highest business qualities. An
untiring- worker, she ?< lound in hoi'
office every dav, from nine lo four
o'clock. She sign-; ali the checks and
money orders, makes all contracts for
supplies of ivory sort, looks over
proofs of all anides before they are
published, and approves the make-up
of every periodical before it is sent to
press. Slie is the head ol' thc whole
establishment. No woman in Amer
ica bas illustrated higher and grainier
qualities-a broader capacity, a loftier
courage, or a more indomitable per
severance under tho storm and pres
sure ol' heavy difficulties and burdens
The story ol her life reads like a
romance. Miriam Florence Foll?n
v? as born in the French quarter of
New Orleans, she began early to
write for the magazines, her first ap
pearance in print being at tho age of
tl; lr teen. She was a hard student and
an accomplished linguist. She trav
eled extensively ami published several
interesting volumes giving thc results
of her journeyings. 11 ci- literary
work was crisp, frosh and evidencing
that editorial faculty for getting at ibo
root of thing- which has been so re
markably developed in her later work.
From the date ol her marriage to Mr.
Leslie she became his most valued ad
viser and most efficient coadjutor in
all matters a licet lng tho make-up ol
him many publications. She assumed at.
once tho editorship of the J.urfi/'s
JfagaxinCf and maintained ll general
anti careful supervision over thc con
tents of all tho other periodicals. To
rare literary ability, Mrs. Leslie added
unusual business capacity, and her
husband soon found her advice no less
valuable regarding tho mechanical and
business departments of his establish
ments than concerning the lei tor-press
of his publications, when Mr. Leslie
died in 188? there was no time left foi
the beautiful young widow lo mourn.
?She was mid is as dainty and relined
as the niosi tenderly cherished lady

unpleasant duties Which demanded

existence itself ol tho house, were
imperilled. A great -tim of money
ivus needed, and needed at once.
By a legal process and in response
to her husband's wish, Mrs. Loslic
abandoned her Christian name ol
Mariam Florence and became in thc
law and to Ibo world "Frank" Leslie.
To thc business world she becalm

ayes Tho following Friday an extra
number was issued, and on thc noxt
Tuesday the regular edition, with
fuller details and illustrations-making
three illustrated papers published in a
single week, an achievement without
parallel in newspaper history. Thc
death of Garfield made a still severer
demand on Mrs. Loslio's ability to
grapple with a crisis. It occurred late
on Monday evening, September 19, and
tho ..Illustrated" newspaper had gone
lo press when (he ncws arrived. She
immediately ordered the presses stop
ped, destroyed the part of thc edition
already published, set the whole force
of the establishment at work preparing
a new edition with engravings of tho
sketches sent in over early Tuesday
morning by thc artists at Klbcron, and
before Wednesday night had on sale a
paper full of illustrations of the death
bed scenes. A week later she seized
another opportunity. The body of
tho dead President Garfield was to
bc conveyed to Washington on the
Wednesday after his death, and funeral
services to he held in (he Capitol on
Friday, before the removal of the
remains for Cleveland for the dual
ceremonies. .Mrs. leslie resolved to
anticipate (ho usual day of publication
the following week, and deposit in
Cleveland papers containing- full illus
trations of the scenes at Washington
on Monday morning. She sent for the
President of the American News Com
pany, and communicated hoi* purpose
ile was incredulous and doubtful: she
insisted it could be dono and should

30,000 copies of tho "Weekly" were
sent lo Ulovolaud, where they sold so
readily that it is believed as many
more could have been easily disposed
Such achievements as these soon

WASHINGTON, 1>. C.. July 10.--It looks

Mild go home hoforo August. At least the
contest over the vetoed pension bills mid
tile situation of the appropriation bills in
the Senate have caused our lawmakers ia
both cuds of tho Capitol to settle down to
Hie iden of such a fate. The prospect of
sitting three weeks yet, and possibly longer,
bas a rather depressing effect upon most ol'
them. 'I'he obvious Impropriety of resort

their collars and cull's when they lind it
