TUESDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBEE 21?.
A Famous Trajredy Recalled.
A sensation is eoon forgotten in New
York, and the mere announcement of the
death of Mrs. William Williams Tuesday
night at the home of ber neice, in east Ooe
hundred-and-niceteectb street, probably re?
called to but very few people one of the most
famous murder trials that ever took plaoe
in this countrv. The Dr. Burdell murder
ptartled New York on the morning of Jan?
uary 31, 1S57. The doctor was a fashionable
dentist of considerable practice and proper?
ty, living in Bond street, near Broadway.
A widow named Cunningham (afterwards
Mia William Williams) was bis housekeep?
er Burdell's mysterious murder never was
eolved. He was killed in the hall of his
house, late at night or very early in the
morning, probably by one or two men who
had followed bim in. Mrs. Cunningham was
suspected of the murder, a3 were other in?
mates of the house, but nothing was proven
a(?aiu?t any of them. The Cunningham
story owes its interest to the effort on the
part of this woman to prove that she was
married to Dr. Burdell, and was a conse?
quent claimant to at least a portion of his
property. To strengthen her claim, or rather
to cteure the entire property, estimated
at from $75,000 to $150,000. she produced a
posthumous heir. In tb< subsequent tri.il,
ro substantiate the claims of this support
tioud heir, A Oakey Hail, who was then dis?
trict attorney, led up to the confession on
the part of a witness, (whoin Mi - Cunning
ham supposed to he her witaes?, but who
was Hall's- witness,) that u.> chi rl was pro
cured at an orphan asyium. waa introduced
into the house by tbi? witness, ami that tho
introduction was effected a! ihe instance
and through the assistance of A. Oakey Hall
himself. Mr. Hsll wr.s aware that Mrs.
Cunningham wanted to produce :i spurious
heir to the Burdell e3tate. und helped ber
out in tlie plan unknown to i;e:.-elf f->r the
eake of confounding her iu court. The
Btrate^y worked to a charm, und the widow
fainted in tho court-room. This was a
sharp, shrewd bit of practice that gained
much credit for tho then young lawyer,
Oakey Hall, and which drove Mrs. Cunning?
ham out of court and out of the city. From
here she went with her two yrow up
daughters to California, and was there mar?
ried to William William?, a mine owner of
means. She has been quite lost siylit of for
years, and her memory id revived only by
the news of her death in this city at the ad?
vanced age of seventy-eight years.?New
York World. _
??What is Woman's Worth'*!
asked a lair damsel of a crusty old bachelor.
He did not know, so she said : !,W. O. man"
(double you, O man I. But a woman feels
worth little if disease has invaded her sys?
tem and is daily sapping her strength. For
all female weaknesses, Dr. R. V. Pierce's
"Favorite Prescription" stands unrivaled.
It cures the complaint and builds up the sys?
tem. Seud 10 cents in stamp? for pampc et
