| CHICAGO. Dec. M.-Why Nicolal
Do Raylan pose.l for years as n man.
although really a Iliisalan woman o(
noble birth is to be tolj In the probate
court, It Is said, within a few
days. The explanation will be made
by Anna Davidson, a chorus girl, who
married De Raylan two years ago.
Miss Davidson is reported to have
been taken into De Raylan's confidence
but is now forced to tell the
real story that Harry George Do Ray,
Ian, the dead woman's son, may come
, Into his Inheritance. This boy has
, | been known as Mrs. He Raylan's son
, i by a former marriage.
The story as It has leaked out, Is
! that De Raylan. the daughter of a Rus,,'slan
admiral, fled to this country fol.1
lowing Ibe secret blrlli of a son 111
I years ago. Harry Tie Raylnn Is n few
. months more than If! years old. In
.! this country Pe Paylau donned man's
' attire, secured employment as a clerk
,. In the Russian consulate in Chicago.
j married, was divorced, married again,
' held a commission In a Chicago mill,'
tin company, aouelil Id enlist in (he
II voluntor service during the Spanish.
j American war and died recently of
consumption at Phoenix, Ariz.
It was IJien that her sex was revealed.
But for lier death far from
home tier secret wotil.1 have gone to
the grave with her.. Her will provides
that Mrs. Anna'Bo Bajinn shall
prepare the body for burial, and a
few hours before her death she urgently
asked that MrB. Do Raylan lie
sent for. Bo Raylan left an estate
valued at SlO.rtdO or anient), of whieh
one-third goes to Airs. Be Raylan. and
the rest to her "beloved son."
The court demands proof of death
and it will he impossible to show that
a doad woman is the decedent .unless
the secret of her life is told.
