CHICAGO, Dec. 31.—Mrs. Augus ta Gardman, 2900 Parrel] street, early today, arose from an undertak er's slab, where she was being pre pared for hnrial. and chided the un dertaker for handling her so rough ly. The startled undertaker rubbed his eyes and pinched himself and then called the police. Bj the time the patrol wagon ar rived Mrs. Gardmann, who had swal lowed a quantity of carbolic acid six hours before, had put on her clothes and was preparing to walk to her home. For hours she had lain as dead n her hopte, and her death cer tifical c had been signed by two phy sicians.

Dec.: id. —To three eovery that Ntcolai de Rr > iaa, for years a eierk to Baron Schlij . nitach, Russian consul in Chicago, was a j woman, a discovery made <■ aly after j her death in Phoenix, Arizona, has j tw;> women with wi om she ured as been solved by the admissions of the , "husband." The motive for He iiaylan's mas auerade, which had bees kept :ti) tor J fifteen years, is mixed. Part of it. i dates ba<:k to her early affair with 3 girl in Southern Russia, at the first j period of ber assuming "manhood," I and part of the explanation is found j in her connection with the revolu- j tioaary "bunds" in this country and ! Russia. I Mrs. Eugenic Bmchulis, De Ray lan's first "wife," and Mrs. Anne Raylan, both unbosomed them selves in explaining the "mystery." There was no great secret dating back in an "affair" with a nobleman in Russia. The woman, De Rj.ylan, was of the common classes of the southern part. The eleveu-year-ohl boy who had been reported as being the real child of the De Raylan wo man, is in reality, as Mrs. Anne De Reylan has stated, her own child. The boy is the son of Joseph Arm strong, her former husband, and the register of the birth is in the city hall. Armstrong appeared and claim ed the fatherhood. The reported kid napping of the boy is a fiction, ac cording to Mrs. De Raylan. In Love With a Girt. The idea of posing as a man grew | gradually with the De Raylan girl. Trouble with her parents over a rev olutionary secret drove her from her home in ElizavetgraJ when eighteen years old. She went to the town of Ka.'iienyets and ther". as a man, won the love of a younp girl, .Ten; a Yas- Biiovitch. Throughout all her life in Amer- j ica as a man, the romance clung to | her. There was a diary, which Mrs. | PrneTtwifs rer**n'ed r eMln»J all th** d»- } f ails of this sad romance. It told of how the l)e Yayhun girl losMhe love of "Jeaya" referred to as ' my angel girl," though an affair with a girl of the Xeva quarter in St. Peters- lim ing the years of her double life in New York and Chicago and the City of Mexico, tetters constant|y went bach to Russia to the "angel girl." The girl wrote pitiful letters, begrring t<> he brought to this coun ty, saying that she would be good ;> tfl true and at one period De Ray .'. tried >•> induce her friend, Fran cis Bruchulis, to marry her old "sweetheart." De Raylan fled Russia to > scape the importunities of "Jea ya." Secret Discovered. hi the City or' Mexico, De Raylan was an aide to Adolf Deverschnitz, for years acting Russian charge de' affairs. A fur the death of Dever- SChnitZ, it was discovered the "he" was a woman. For a short time in that city De Re.ylan lived as a wo ■nu n, but upon leaving for New York assumed the dress a: .1 role of a man. In New York, feeling secure of her deception, she married her first "wife" and from the the story pro ceeds to Chicago. De Flavian's connection with the revolutionary party is seen in her presence at meetings of the West side "bund".and the secret conferences with fellow countrymen and the num erous dispatches sent to Russia.
