Hills, which states the people thereabouts
toy that Erteile Newman, about thirty
years old, died In Egremont lu 1STS, and
after funeral services In Little Methodist
Church, was buried In the town cemetery,
and the forgotten sensation comes from the
dyng testimony of 1L Worth Wriehl
of '.'ounccticut, who is said to hare con
fessed to bis brother that he, a medical stu
dent in the Albany Medical College, was
proem at the funeral with otuer students
and lay in wait at the cemetery till the bur
ial was ovrr aad the gtaveyatd deserted,
and then helped to disinter the body and
carry it in sseks to the medical college.
They atouce went to work on It in the

body showed signs of life and was resus

New York theatrical people, aad for soase
time before coming west he was ouc of
the most successful ballet-masters
la New York. The n:ws of his
crime, arrest and conviction created
quIU a sensation in eastern theatrical
circles. Blandotvski was the victim of
circumstances, and as there were many
palliating features, friends ia tho pro
fession at once set schemes on foot to
secure the man's pardon. Tbey have at

fell iu love with a pea-ant girl of beauty,
and overcoadu:; parental objections,

of his affection, being vaia of her good
looks, fend ot fine dresses and inclined to
coquette with the counters. She almost
ruined him by her cxtravagauce, and
when he remonstrated !he rebelled.
BlandoirsU was one day arrested
and thrown Into prison, where he was
kept for weeks without au explanation.
Then his General called upoa him and
told hint that the cause of his imprison

pamphlets at bb house. The General
said that Blandow. kt's wife had begged
him to attempt to secure bcr husband's

request that he made the visit to the
prison. Tbe guards had been bribed,
and arrangements made to transport him
to the coast, where he could take a ves

Blandowski Indignantly replied that he
was innocent, aad did not ueed to fly like
a criminal. Thereupon the Glacial pro
duced a letter Iron the prisoner's wife
imploring him to fly. She confessed that
the Nihilist documents were obtained
through her instrumentality, and ia af
fecting language asked his forgiveness
for bringing misfortune upon hiui. bhe
asked him to accept the sen ices of his
General, who would prove a friend, aud to
escape to America, where she would fol

evidence of his wife's affection. The
General prescd a well-filled purse iato
his hand, aad they passed the bribed jail

York In safety, but his wife did not fol

that his iuiprbtouicnt was a conspiracy be

planned to get him out of the country,
and procure a divorce on the streu-th ot
