DEAD OR ALIVE? » -| A REMARKABLE AFFAIR. 1 A strange affair is reported from Bordeaux i Eight or nine days ago a youth of the district, ] named Jean Piet, went on a drunken spree with two companions, the upshot of which was that Piet fell into the river and was drowned, or at least that was the verdict of the authorities when two days later his body was fished out of the water and interred. The boy was his j mother's favourit-e child, and nightly after the burial Mme. Piet dreamt that her son was not dead, but buried alive. So vivid were these dreams that the mother ultimately went to the authorities and implored them to grant an order for exhumation. This was refused atfirot, but the mother pleaded so eloquently that consent was at last obtained. The exhumation took place, and physicians confessed themselves puzzled by the condition of the body, and notably by the marked absence of any signs of decomposition. They have determined on a careful investigation, and the remains are to be watched night and day, in order to detect any signs of returning life. The affair is creating the greatest excitement j in the district. j —
