" ' 7tf CBADWICK WOMAN. :
"When a real live sensation is
wanted, there must be a woman in
it. The' shooting of James Fisk
Jr. by Edward Stokes was not
sensational so much because it was
, Fisk that was shot, or that he was
shot by Stokes, but because Josie
Mansfield was behind the scenes.
The feud between Henry Ward
Beech er and Theodore Tilton was
not sensational merely because it
was a row between two remarkable
men, but because there was a Mrs.
Tilton. Much ot the sensational
in the land fraud cases at Portland
is due to tbe incident that Marie
Ware is a defendant and that she
is described as dashing and pretty.
If there is one thing in which
women stand pre-eminent, it is in
the ability, . when they see fit, to
paralyze the natives, and in this
respect, Mrs. Chadwick is the
main guy. Mr. Chadwick never
would have been heard of, but for
the fact that he is the husband of
lier. The president and cashier oi
the Citizen's National bank of
Cleveland, Ohio, never heard of
outside their ; own town a week
ago, are familiar persons now to
every man, woman and child in
the United States, and all because
The whole world is watching
with keen interest the dramatic
denouements in the caieer of this
woman, who obtained loans of
millions and spent the money as
lavishly as she borrowed, who
broke banks and bankers with a
celerity and eclat unexampled, who
had .her origin in an humble home
in Canada, but by her wits and
witchery has lived for years in all
the lavish luxury of an Oriental
princess, and whose final pyrotech
nics cap the climax of things sen
sational for all time. Living for a
time on the alms of an indigent
sister, deriving sustenance at other
times as a clairvoyant, serving
three years in a penitentiary for
fraud, born with a penchant for
forgery and false pretence develop'
ing her sphere until she made
banks and bankers believe And
1 rew Carnegie, the richest of the
rich, to have borrowed great sums
of her her last and dizziest dash
in the sensational seems incredible,
yet it is all true, as the defunct
banks and disgraced bankers know
Men have their powers, and
bents, and fortes but when the task
to be done is to be full of fireworks
sky rockets and slambang. the
big actor in it must be a woman.

AH the Creffield Victims Restored,
and all at Home Hypnotism
Mrs. Frank Hurt and Miss Attie
Bray arrived Thursday from Salem
and are now at the Hurt home in
this city. All the members of
the family are again at the fireside,
fully restored in mind, and fast re
gaining bodily strength. Almost
the unanimous testimony of each
is that in the present reunion there
is apparent wakening from a long
nightmare, a fact that confirms the
view that meny have long held,
that it was hypnotic influence that
was responsible for manifestatfons
of religious zeal during recent
months. Those in best position to
know are fully convinced this is
the correct theory, and those who
passed under its influence and suf
fered from it, were helpless under
the will of a mind that in some way
held control of their acts. Such
things be in the world, and it is not
of the remarkable that the influence
suggested is responsible for all that
Of those recently at Salem, Miss
Hartley is the only one left at the
hospital, and she is expected home
before a very long time. All of the
others are fully restored, and the
end of the unfortunate chapter is
