Mrs. Lydia Sherman, the mur
leress, who 'escaped from the Con

'-cently, waVH recaptured at Provi

lays after. The wonu Is a strango

L'he following is a synop is of her
onfession made in 1873 after having
wien imprisoned for lifo for the
mirdci'of ber third lusband, Mr.
51hernian.

Mrs. Sherman was bor i in 1824,

ost heart, and several times at
.ecmpted sluicide. He was also in the
mabit of taking t, hs bad and lying
,bi'ro for weeks, and many persons
,oight him insane. During one
)f these fits, Mrs. Sherman says he
vas acting badly.
M.'ETING TnE TEMP"'ER.
She continues: I called in Polie,
sergt. Mc ----, who liyed in the lower
>art of our house, aiId he advised
uo to put him opt of the way, as bto
vould never be any good to me Or
umimself again. I asked him what ho
)kant, and he told me to get a cor
il quantity of tgrsonic and give
1nm some of it. I' paid ten cents
or it, put it in some oat meal gruel
nd gave hii somd of it diring 'the
fternoon. -That ni lit hewas very

1e (lied. The following Jujy I male
p1) my mind that my two little chil
i'on, Mary Ann, six years ohl, and
dward, two yealrs younger, - would
e better off if tl'riy were out of tChe
'ay, so, after tlhnking the' matiter
>ver for several clays, I made them
ome of the same kind of gruel their
ather had eaten. ' They only sur..
ived a short time. The doctors
aid that the children died of gas
rio fever. They had not the lctst
uspicionf of the truth.

Then my little daughter, Ann

vas continulhally sick. This made
no down -liear'ted anid discou raged

I then kent house urtil the fol
owing Mayv, going out as usual 'to
lo rnu'sinig. About that ime Lydia,
ny eldest' (daughter, 'weht to -Ndiv
for'k witl1 wvork, was taken sick, and
fter an ilgixess of twonty-one days
he died a n)atur'al death. I novdr
vo her anything the doctor did
LOL order. Then I went to Sailord

(aixomn. It was not 'It profltIble
"entura, so I i'eturned fo New vYi
;nd wvcnt to 'live with my so.
Laughiter, Mrs. Thompson. Then I
ook a 'situation with A[r. Cochran,
v'ho kdpt a Sbiwing mabbino estab
tshment in Canal street. ' 'horo' I
oceam6 acquainted with M\r. Janiles
Thurtji. Heo asked doe to' take dare
f hiW aged mother and' koeop' house
or them. I consented" to go for
ight dollars per month. I .,lived
hoto, eight months. One dtay Mr
John Fairchild, at whoso store I
bought groceries, asked hie if I
WcdAld like- to keep house for a man
who had juut lost hii wife. In this
way I becario acquaintod with Mr.
Hiurlburt, *lio : lived in Coram,
Iuntiitgton. After I had boon a
few days with hima lie asked me to
marry him; which I did November
22, 180. Tho ceremony was per
formed by the Rev. A Jr. Morton' in
his owr' hor4so. Ao lived happily
for fourteon months. About throe
monthh after we wo''o married Mr.
Iurlb-trt maqo his' will. Ie was
sul)ject to fits of diziness.
Ono day hd was nnwell, and ho
ate clams and drank cider with
saleratus in it. 'Then ho became
vorse:' On one ocasioni ho made
ine drink cider and 'saleratus, 'after
which "I became very sick and dizzy,
and took to voiting. Finally Mr.
Hlurlblrt bocanlo Yorso, and about
5 o'clobk one niing the old man
died. ' Now, I wi.ili to say that I
never gave Mr. flurlburt anything
that would cansu sickness, though
there 'may havo'been arsenic mixed
with Fho saleratus which'ho put into
the c;dor.
4 hout two months after Hurlburt
died I heard that Horatio N. Shor
man of Birmninkham wanted mb to
take a little baby to board. i mot
Mr. Sherman' one Sunday morning.
He intaoduchd 'himself to me, and
said that he had another object in
palling besides getting me to take
inro of his hrby. He wanted me as
his liousekeer, because his mother.
in--law' and his daughter cold not
get along well togetlier. T' said I
would think' about it. Two weeks
later he came again and oA'ored to
marry me. I told him we bught to
be better acquainted.' lie said that
he was coml)ellod to got some one,
as he could not have the old womanl
in the house, for she was creating u
constant distur banco He then
went away, and I did not see him
again for three gi' fou r"woie'; but
at the ond.of that tin o h 'uud me

In July, 1870, I lent him $309
more, and 'on the 2d of Septenber,
1870; went to 'Mr. Shornan'd
sister's house iil'4ridgewatei', 1(apLs.,
and1w were1, m1arre'id."0"
After \\' had bden married about
two morjths Mr.' shorman said one
day that ho wishid his babe (Frank)'
would die, as thdn t'h' old womad
should not stay another day in the
houso' "I was full of titBuble, a'ng
not knowing what to do, I Was
tempted to give him (Frank) sofileo
thing to 'et him out of the way,
for . thought he would .ie better off'.
They ha4 arsenic in th lousd. I
put s3ofme of it in some milk,' and
only gave to hinY once. ' That night
the chil4'died at 11 o'clock. This
was November 14, 1870. 'Mr. Sher:
man" theti'took tg'cJrink, arid I sup-,
ported the family for hbout six
months. Then came Christmas, and
Ada do'voted a groat deal of time in
decorniing the clinrchi. I furnished
her with all her "clothes and-pi
her dressmaking bills. On:"Oh~'st'
