Ten years ago a poor girl of eigh teen years, traveling alone, sang in au Illinois ritv to au audience, who. to amuse themselves, in wicked thought- . , , , - j.i ' lessness laugneu aim jecreu i hci and filially hissed at her till she left the stage weeping like the child she was at the harsh treatment she re ceived. That poor girl was Emma Abbott, whose fame is now world-wide When the receipts of the concert were given her she saw that she had not enough to pay her bill at the hotel for as long as she must stay, but a kind friend who pitied her for the trials she was bavins shared her room with her and thus helped her on her way. j A few davs after she went to an Iowa city where kiud friends had found room in a house already crowded with .holiday visitors for the struggling girl. Even then with her money almost goue, she kept a brave heart and in sisted that in spite of all her discour agements she would reach the consum mation of all her hopes, study music uuder Italian masters and be come the great artist she now is. She had not yet reached her hardest strug-; gle, for soon after she was compelled to pawn her guitar to pay her bills, and to cut her long hair from her head and sell that Few, perhaps none, can ever know the trials, the tears, the heartaches, the almost despair of those days to the girl who knew the power of her voice aud longed so much to cultivate it But all these things instead of discouraging her only made her more determined to prosecute her .purpose, and fitted her for the work she must endure when the suu of prosperity should shine on her. She sang her way to New York to see Parepa Rosa, but Parepa was sick and could not see her. Turning back she reached Detroit and secured an inter view with Clara Louise Kellogg, who saw the power there was in Miss Abbott's voice and resolved to help her. A place was found in the choir of Dr. E H. Ckapia'e church in New Yerk.,lhe church saw - her ability and giving her six thousand dollars sent her to Italy. She became acquainted with Baroness Rothschild who gave her eighteen thpusaqd francs. This raoneyjmd the help she received from othereources, with the Indoni table will -that enabled her to sur mount all difficulties, enabled her to secure the finest musical education possessed by any singer ia the world. Her good fortune did jot enervate her ; she worked at her studies with a zeal that is born of real genius till she was ready lor the stage, and even now at everv leisure monieit, in hotels, on i the cars, her music is in hand. The result of all this work is the most finely cultivated voice in the world, a voice capable of musical toues that are attempted by no other artist. Not long since she sang again in the same hall in the same town where she had been so cruelly treated ten years before. But it was crowded then, and thunders of applause went up from! You probably saw the story of the the enraptured audience ready to dojrowin lhe pajace Mn gome wag ner kge- I observing Mr. Beecher hanging his "W hat are your feelings as you hat with some paj,, on a peg imme. smg in a place where . you have diatelv over hil5 manCed to been ridiculed in your earlv life?" she was asked. "Nothing, but that I want to see the friends ot those days. They were my days of trial, necessary, per haps to make me what I am." Petti ness of spirit that vronld feel resent ment, or foolish triumph over those who sneered at her,, does not belong to the great artist. To kef "great; musi cal education she has added a good knowledge of the best literature ot the day, ' She has the same cordial, cheery manner that she kept through even the nardett trials f her girlhood. She is great not only as a singer, but in all those qualities that make a no ble womanhood. Her example will encourage many a straggling one to greater efforts, and such encourage ment will be to to her as great a tri amph as the applause; of the thou sands who listen' to her songs.

From the Detroit Frit! Pre-. A boy, not over 11 years old, whose pinched lace betrayed hunger, and whose clothing could scarcely be called by the name, dropped into a carpenter shop on Grand liiver Avenue the other day, and after much hesitation explained to the loremam : -Ve wane to get a grave-board for ma. She died last winter, and the graves are so thick that we can't hardly find hers no more. We went up last Sunday, and we come near not finding it. We thought awiui we'd get a grave-board, so we wouldn't lose" the grave. When we lost it, Jack 4 o . . l.o Atari Hi!.

"Oil, he's home, but he never goes up there with us, and we shan't tell him about the board. 1 guess he hated ma, for he wasn't home when ahe died, and he wouldn't buy no col fin. nor anything isometimes, wlien we are sittin on the door-step talking J ..t i 1 T..b o...I n.,,1 .,w.r,.;.. ! and I remembering how she kissed us j all afore she died, he says we'd better , m i t u .1. l-:l i quit that, or well get what's bad for IUt!lM1n wllo fclIW nmtr to ll0 us.

How much will me uoaru oe .' w 1 ! . I I 1 1 " I The carpenter selected someting fit for the purpose and asked : "Who will put it up at the grave ?" We'll take it up on our cart," replied the boy, "and I guess the graveyard man will help us put it up." "You waut the name painted on, don't you?" (iVaq at- tea crnnt tho luvird TV 111 tP and then we want ,ou to paiut on tiat he was our ma, and that she was forty- one years old, and that she died the 2ud of Novemler, and that she's gone to Heaven, and that she was one of the best mothers ever was, ami that we are going to be good all our lives and go up where she is when we die. How much will it cost, sir?" "How much have you got?" "Weil," said the boy, as he brought out a little calico bag and emptied its contents on the bench. "Bud d rawed the baby for the womau next door aud earned twenty cents ; Jack he weeded in the garden and earned forty cents, and he found five more in lhe road ; I run of errands and made kites and fixed a boy's cart and helped carry some apples into a store, aud I earned sixty-five cents. All that makes a hundred and thirty cent", and pa don't know we've got it. cause we kept it hid in the ground under a stone." The carpenter meant to be liberal, but he said : "A grave-board will cost at least three dollars." The lad looked from bis little store ot metals to the carpenter and back, realized how many weary weeks had passed since the first penny was earned and saved, and suddenly wailed out : "Then we can't never, never, buy one, and ma's grave will get lost." But he. left the shop with tears of gladness in his eyes, and when he re turned yesterday little Bud and Jack were with him, and they had a cart There was not only a head-board, but one for the foot of the grave as well, and painter and the carpenter had done their work with full hearts, and done it well. "Ain't it awful nice nicer than rich folks have!" whispered the children, as the boards were being placed on the cart, "won t the grave look nice, though; and won't ma lie awful glad?" Ere this the mother's grave has been marked, and when night conies the three motherless ones will cuddle close together and whisper their gratitude that it cannot be lost to them, even in the storms and drifts of winter.

When Mr. Beecher essayed to retire there was a shriek, aud every head poped out to see what the row was about, and there stood Mr. Beecher, amazed, while Mrs. Beecher from the adjoining berth ex claimed, "Oh, Henry."

Fatal Mistake of a St. Louis Burse. 1 Which She Expiates by Commit tint: Suicide. 1 Frm a Si. T-oui- is-r. The miiiotonotM routine of dfily life at the St. Louis Female llospitai was broken Thursday night by a double tragedy. ALICE WOOD, a young girl of twenty sHuimers, an inmate ol the institution, wan the victim institution, wan in the 'ir-igedy, and Emily Mueller, an old, esteemed and trti-tetl nur-t; of the hospital, the one upon whose sdioulderx reated the I Main?, and who took her own lite within ian hour after the demine ot her whoe ileth rhe had caused. The accidental luiatake in two !ttte by I which an enorraoii.s dus of a solution f corrosire sublimate wu administered led I to the terrible event which haa aent two )iil: into eternity. )n the morning of the 25th, lietween the lioiira of 10 and 11 o'clock, Miss Mueller was onleretl by Dr. M. Hay ward Post, one ol the assistant physicians and druggist of the in-titulinn, to ailminister to Alice Wood a dosv of sulphate of uiagnenia. more com monly known a nail. She left hi preii-eiit-e to execute the order, and went to her room to gel the bottle containing the medi cine. Slowly ahe ascended the .stejNt to her anariniriit at the very top of the house, picked up what she supposed to le thecor Itct btjltle, and then deceiideil again to the floor on which wja located the wanl of vtiich the pitieiit ma an inmate. It was ats iiecoa try for the nurse to pas through svvera! other wards before reui:uing the r,"1 V'.,r: -' , . ,,ct; Kl n.Cr l I me piuai sue carnni, mere wouiu nave been no IiJ.khI stains uoii her hands. This she did not do, hut walked on through each Miccosive ward, doubtless with a kind and cheerful word mid morning greeting for each poor unfortunate. I'res fi.t'y she arrived at the bed of Al ce Wood, who was sitting up, partially dtessetl, ami chatting with the others around her. The u-ual salutation pasd brtnt-ch the two friends, nnd then, uking nut of her basket a small tumbler known at a whisky glass, she tilled it to the brim, with the cunteiiis and handed it to Alice to take. Unsuspectingly the girl placed the glass to her iis and drained it. Replacing both in her basket, the nure then lelt the room to attend to her other patient. In a few momenta A FEARFV1. CHANGE came over Alice's face, and she commenced vomiting violently and moaning iu agony. One of the other inmates, an old woman aud very feeble, managed to reach the door, and as Mir Moeller passed shortly af'er wards, called her in, telling her that Alice was very sick. The nurse came, and, know ing the nature of the harmless drug intend ed to be administered, realized tiiat a mis take must have been committed, and ran down stairs in search of a doctor, saving ahe had given bedbug" Hiison to Alice Wood. Dr. Post answered the call, and rushed up stairs to the patient, first giving rapid or ders for such antidotes as he thought might become necessary It took only a few seconds to discover the gravity of the situa tion and dangerous condition of the pat ent. An inspection of tl.e medicine bxsket of the nurse also demonstrated the nature of the dose, which waa corrosive sublimate, used as a bug p isoii. All the remedies known tn the medical profession were applied by the physicians, and after a time the patient rallied and it was thought possible that her life might not be sacrificed. hen the excitement had some whs t sub sided, and the patient was resting easily. Dr. .-chenck directed Ins attention to the author ol ihe mischief, who had been standing by iu a state of semi-distraction and agon zing suspense aa to the outcome of the terrible mistake. She was utterlv unable to account for her seemingly FATAL ERROR, and could only constantly repeat the words: "Mv God. Doctor, I did it! I alone am to blame ! I have killed her, ruined myself, and only hope it will iot ruin you." There was but one course to tike, and that waa to suspend the nurse from further duty, and this was done. She waa com- iielled to give up the keva of her medicine cheat, and inlormed that never again would she be trusted to administer to the sick. The orders of the physician were received meekly, and in reply "imply pleaded with the greatest earnestness to be allowed to watch at bedside of her victim. After con sideration the doctor, understanding the woman s nature and the pathetic sincerity of her desire to aid in restoring Alice to life and strength, if possible, granted the request From that moment Mis Moeller seemed to have but one object in view that Alice Wood must never mi her from the room. Faithfully she attended her every want, became depre-sed when the patient 'a condition changed for the worse, and corre- spondingly exhilarated when favorable symptoms were reported. Her mental con dition during the week preceding toe death of Alice was snch, and her remark indi cating a state of mind slightly off ila bal ance, that stringent order were given by Dr. Schenck that ahe must be closely watched, and all dangerous medicine re moved from her room. She frequently rated her intention of "living if Alice lived, and dying if Alice died;" but the doc tor considered that he had taken every pre raution, even should any cause for audi an act arise. That he waa mistaken will be Or the S6lh insL Alice commenced sink ing, and al 7:05 p. m or within a very few minutes of that time, she bre ithed her last, and while fully cognizant to whom she owed her death, and never having lost con-scioa-nens, not one word ever passed her lips reproaching the weeping, gray-haired nurse whose hand prepared the death draught. Mist Moeller left the room when assured that Alice had breathed her last, and walked ap stairs towards her own room. She wa met in the hall by two of inmate, and in response to qaeatinm re plied, "Don't talk to me; I'm crazy." She wan seen by other coming out of the bath-room with a pitcher of water: was no ticed to be tn n very excited frame of mind; entered her room, closed it, and wa NEVER AG A 19 SEEX ALIVE. Immediately upon Being notified of the death. Dr. Schenck detailed two of the nurse to watch Mum Moeller closely, for the Doctor well knew that shoald she at tempt to eatry oat ner announced intention of committing suicide, the effort would most probably be made within a few hours nfier the culmination of the coincident event. Mr. Alice Wagooer.who occupied room 3S. next door to that of Miss Moeller. with a connecting door, was especially impressed with the importance of this tact, and followed the name to her mom. This was about half past seven o'clock. On knock ing at the door ahe was asked to come in, and on doing so foand Mis Moeller bath ing. A conversation ensued, in which the poor woman seemed perfectly self posseassd, and a it wa a boat sapper time for the n arses,. Mrs. Wagoner kit her for the par poas eating her meal, intending an im mediate retara. Within twenty aiinaica af terwara Mm Mary Graety, who had seam ordered to sleep in Miss MoellerV roots, ! went to the door and knocked. Receiving ! ro answer, and being aware of what wa feared might occur, ahe asked one of the in I aiate, Mr. Lulu Bagnell, who happened to I be paMing, to get a chair and look over the j transoiu. The requexl vv complied with, and one glance waa sufficient. The woman ! shrieked, and it required no soothnayer to' diviBe the wene which had caused heir ter- I ror. The woman ruhed excitedly down to inform the doctor, and, meeting them near by, all three (Dr. Schenck.

Now again' she i better, since the unhappy accident happened. I am living continually be tween fear and hope, and the life is tearful, to be a continual witness of her agony. My Dears: If it is God's will that she must die, the.i I shall go with my victim al the same lime, life lor life. This is the way I may make atonement. May God have mercy on all of as, and forgive me. It pains me so deeply to leave you. you and the happy children, and to cause them sorrow. How happy they would feel if Aunt Mlmmy were with them. Leontine, keep in memory my last word, and be a goal and obedient child. Georgie must learn well, and be an honest man, and Florence, the dear, hearty, three-year-old child, she will soon have forgotten that she ever had an Aunt Mini ray. I wish that Aglar would take ray effects. I ! wish thai I may be buried side by side with my poor victim on the farm. Be sure to accede to this, my last wish,and do not come when I am dead to see me. Take to heart my sincere wish that it's better for all, and now farewell all of you, my dears. Il will not last long; then we will all be in the here after, through God's grace to be united again.

Dr. Schenck, Dr. Post, Dr. Pharr, all did what wa in their power were indefatigable day and night for my poor victim but in vain. I can only give my deeply felt thanks to these noble men. I also give my hearty thanks to Dr. Schenck and lady for their kind treatment during my unhappy misfor tune. God's blessing be with them all. After a perusal ot tliH letter, no doubt wa left in the mind of any one that Mi Moeller was deliberately PREPARING HERSELF FOR BURIAL when last seen by the lady occupying the adjoining room, and Mrs. Wagoner stated thai the poison had been obtained from her room, as the door waa open between the two in the short interval while she wa absent at supper. A all medicine had been taken immediately after the accident to Alice Wood and placed in that room, this supposition is probably a true one. The Heathen Chineae. Washington, Sept. 28.

The demand from Great Britain and the Continent for our wheat will certainly be well sustained, for the rest of the year, and our exports of the cereals will be heavier than ever before. Al ready the most extensive European handlers of grain are inquiring sharp ly as to the amount we can probably spare for export, and, although the supply will certainly not be limitless. it will be ample. It has been argued in Liverpool journals that our surplus of 50,000,000 bushels of wheat will be taken up forthwith, and that we shall need so much for home consump tion that we will be short by the first of January ; but this not likely, for wherever grain has been grown this year the yield has been great and good. The rumor abroad that we had exaggerated our crop reports, and that the grain was not up to the average, are flatly denied by the best authori ties, and there can be no doubt that we can, on a pinch, provide bread for all the rest of the world- The IT.
