When approached on the subject of her
marriage with Mr. Heenan, she said :
"I was a mere Kirl, playing at Laura
Keent'a Theatre i?. New York, when I was
told that Mr. Heenan came often to the
theatre to see me ou the stage* The idea
seemed ridiculous, as I was so slight and
email and not p eying parts where I showed
to much udvan'sge. One night be occupied
a bus, and toe papers were publishing bis
challenge to tho world.
"I disliked everything counected with the
ring, and thought that all tho e people
ought to be in the war where there was real
fighting. I told ihu manager I was going to
get off a joke at Heenau's expense, and ho
forbade me, as bo raid He on at. was a good
patron of the placo, and people often came
to see bim in the audience. I couldn't help
doing it, however, and I was able to do so
without changing a word in my part. When
I came to tbe line wbicb read : 'All able
bodied men ought to fight for their country,'
I rendered it tbis way : 'All able bodied men
ought to fight'?then turning to Heenan's
box, and walking over toward it, I contin?
ued in a louder tone?'for their country.'
"Tbe effect waB instantaneous on the au
dienet', and a great ?bout went up and gen?
eral handicapping. Heenan pot bis bands
to his face and hurst out laughing, aud wh. n
tbe audience ceased to applaud he clapped
his hands approvingly und 'his started an?
other outburst, and even the manager, who
threatened to discharge mu if I guyed Hee
nan, I saw laughing behind tbe scenes. It
was a play called "Tbe Seven '?sisters," a
"Next day a lndy in tbe company, whose
husband knew Heenan, told me that Hee?
nan desired au introduction. I declined, as
I had a horror of fighters, but tbe request
was renewed, and I sent ba<k that when be
guve up gaming and prize fighting I would
be glad to meet bim. I supposed nothing
would come of this, but next day I received a
marked copy of Wil ken's Spirit of the Times,
in which the announcement was mudu tbut
Heenan bad withdrawn bis challenge to tbe
world ?cd bad aNo sold out bis interest in a
gambling r-aloon in Nt w York.
"I v,as quite HsloDished, und being jet a
girl, was also pleasnd. for it flattered my
vanity that while tho whole country was
wondering why Heenan hart withdrawn his
chalk-nite lofc world I alone knew the real
cause. Ho w?s> presented i-j nie that after?
noon, and I was surprised !o moot a mau to
itentlo nod manly, and after admiring
him a week or two I fell hopelessly In love
at d secretly married him, for my parents
opposed tbe match. An odd selection tbis
t-iant made for a wi e?I only weighed 110

The Crow and the Drake,
A dnok with a brood of ducklings was
walking along the edge of Hankins'a pond,
near Pleasant Mount, Pennsylvania, a
few days ago, when one of a flock of
crows that were banging about the spot lit
on the ground near the duck?, and pecked
and strutted to and fro, in her indifferent
aort of way, as though not noticing the pret?
ence of the ducke, but ail the time drawing
oloeer and closer to tbem. Finally the crow
made a sudden movement, capture 1 a duck?
ling and flew away w;th it, greeted by a loud
chorus of congratulatory caw* from its com?
panions, wbo had benn perch, d in a tree not
far away a? quiet as mice There was great
commotion in the dnck family over the Joss
of one of its mambers, and tl.o old duck's
drake, which had been swimming in the
pond nearby, huiriod to her and quacked
After a few minutes anoiher crow, proba?
bly envious of the s-uccesa of its fellow iu ?e
curing so delicious a meal ?o neatly, drop?
ped dowu on tho ground and began n f-ys
tem of similar mactvivres. The cawing
of the crows ceased instantly, and the
eyts of the flock were evidcnly
fixed on their schemioe companion,
watching the result of his wiles A firmer
wbo bad been an eye witness of tho first
performance, now thought it strange and
stupid on the part of the old ducks, after
their experience, that they did cot take
their little ones in the water, w here they
could protect them better. But :.. did not
interfere, being curious to see what -u cub
the second crow would have. Ho soon ili
covered that the ducks had loogor heads
than he gave tbem credit for. Tb? crow
pecked and sidled along until it v.a- quite
near the ducks, when it darted forward to
seize a duckling. Eat tho drake had us eye
on the marauder, and before the crow bad
the duokiing the drake had the crow. It
seized the black robber by one leg, and in
spite of the letter's yells and fluttering,
plunged in the pond with it. The drake
swam a few feet, and then dived with bis
The capture of the crow filled the flock of
crows with alarm, and they arose in a bidy
and circled about with deafening cries The
sudden difappearanca of their comrade be?
neath the water aroused all 'heir h-.isi icious
nature, and they flew ronidly away. The
drake remained below for an extraordinary
long time, and when it cam* to the t>ui face
the crow was not with it. It apptmed soon
afterward. It was as dead ub a stone, the
revenging drake having drowned it The
drake swam back to its mate and family,
and a loud quacking of congratulations
followed, after which the whele family
launobed themselves in the water for u tri?
