She vras brought there on the previous Thursday suffering from blood poisoning that had bloated and distorted her features. This was caused by her too apparent condition, for she was about to become a mother. Early Friday morning she was seized with a convulsion and fell to the floor. From that time until her death, which occurred within the next twenty-four hours, she was unconscious. Over a month ago Mrs. Bullit, the matron of the home for friendless women, received several letters from a girl at Logansport, who signed her name "Lillie Langiey/' asking if she could be received at the home, stut- ng that her father and mother were dead. The matron -wrote and told ifr that the rules forbade her taking n women from other counties unleis :hey were able to pay thair board.The irl begged to be admitted, and Mrs. Bullit submitted the matter to the board of trustees, but .they were adverse to allowing the girl to be admitted. Two weeks ago the girl wrote that she was coming, and presented herself at the home within a few days afterward. The matron iindly took her in for she was evidently suffering, and her face, although swollen, showed signs of beauty and refinement. She had just $4 when she arrived here, having spent $4 in railroad fares in coming & roundabout way. In the brief storv cold Mrs. Bullit she stated that in order to reach this city she had sold ier organ. For fear the people in Lo- ansport would learn her destination she came here by way of Lafayette and probably Crawfordsville. She had not yet reached the age of seventeen years. The matron took quite a fancy to the poor deluded irl. Her grief at times was overwhelming, but she could never mention the name or give the slightest description of the man -who had betrayed her. He had won her confidence by a promise of marriage. A week ago the inmates of the home gave a Drivate entertainment o.nd the girl took part in a dialogue, her performance causing much applause. She had a beautiful voice and had stated to the cook of the institution that she had sung in the choir of a Catholic church at Logansport. About twelve years ago a girl named Lizzie Staley stayed at the home, and Lizzie claimed that she was a cousin of hers, and admitted that Henry Staley of Logansport, -was her uncle. When Mrs. Bullit asked her about her parents she claimed that; they wery dead, but her sister was living. She wrote several letters to Logansport, addressing them to Lillie Langtry saying that her sister received them. She received letters in a woman's hand-writing also signet by Lillie Langtry. Mrs. Bullit did not see the contents of these letters. Last week the girl's condition be came serious and 'her removal to the hospital was necessary. She was very despondent and cried as if her heart would break. She bade Bullit's sisters good-bye and cried out bat ween her tear?, "O pray f orme.I'm so unhappy." As soon as she reached the hospital she wrote a letter to the Lillie Langtry, ot Logansport, asking for money in order that she might receive private treatment The reply, which was unsigned, die not come until after *he> poor gir had passed away. The writer gtatec that only $12 could be raised anc that would soon be seat. The body of the dead girl would have beanf removed to a medical col lege, but for Mrs. Bullit'g inter ference. She had it removed to Gir ton's undertaking establishment on Indiana avenue to have it prepar ed for a Christian burial. She tele graphed to Henry Staley at Lo gaasport yesterday, and receivet the reply: "Bury her and mark th grave.'' Mrs. Bullit suspected thn. Staley was the girl's father, am she again wired him, asking if h would meet the expenses of hi daughter's burial. A reply to th last telegram hat. not yet been re ceived. At the hospital the girl wa registered as Gertrude Carroll, Ther is possibility that an abortion i attempted on her before she came t the city, thus producing blood pois oning. She appeared to be innocent of the ways of the world and the wretch who directly or indirectly caused her death she failed to make known. In the above sad titory of a young woman's fatal error and a scoundrels perfidy was recognir.od a tale which would fit perfectly the ease of one of Logausport's young girls who, tempted, had fallen and as a result ad paid the extreme penalty. The eference to Henry Staley, the well- nown gardener at the asylum, only erved to strengthen this suspicion f the correctness of the story, and ist evening a ,, Journal rc- orter drove down through ;ie rain to the residence of the ged gardener to learn the full etails of the lamentable story which rings so much of sorrow to the many friends of poor Leo Staley in his city. Mr. Staley lives;in a little ottage back in the fields to the south f the asylam, in Clinton "township 'or many years he has resided in he self same place with his good ife and winsome daughters, re- peeted by al) in the neighborhood. ince the opening of the asylum at jong Cliff he has been employed as ardener in the asylum grounds and is admirable industry joined with he thrift of his family has earned or him a "deservedly good reputa- ion as an attache of the State insti- utioii. Arriving at the humble home of *Ir. Staley, the reporter found no ifficulty in obtaining an interview vith the almost heart broken father irid mother of poor Leonora Staley, or it was indeed she, the winsome -irl, formerly so well known in her ocial circle in this city, who had ied so pitiably, MO miserably, in the iospita.1 at Indianapolis on Satur,ay. From Mrs. Staley, who bet-ween t sobs of anguish which could lot be surpressed. the whole sad tory was learned, the following acts were gathered: Leo. Staley, the handsome and A-insome daughter of the old garden was twenty years of age and her acquaintances numbered every one friend. For several years past she las been well known in the circle in which she moved as a popular dining room girl at the Johnston Hou.se and ater serving in the same capacity at ilyers' restuarant. At the latter place she made ; the acquaintance of Thomas A. Collier, a passenger brakeman on the second division, Pan Handle. This acquaintance developed into an in- .imacy which as the months jassed ripened into a love which, on he part- of the unfortunate girl was not wise. As Collier's run laid him ever at Kokomo several hours during each trip, the infatuated girl went to that place where sbe secured a position in the Clinton hou.se as dining room girl, thus being eaabled each day to see and speak with her over. Collier made all sorts of protestations of love and affuetion, and liis promises of marriage were as 'requent as his avowals of love. It was thus that the designing and per- lidious rascal betrayed his sweet- aeart. By a well told story of lack of present funds and expectations of immediate financial relief Collier put off his trusting sweetheart from time to time unti her heart grew sick at promises so often broken, although her faith in her lover held steadfast. In Septem ber last the girl was taken ill at Ko komo and her old mother went after her and brought her back to. th home of her childhood to nurse her back to health. It was then noticec by the discerning eyes of the tone mother that a great change hac taken place in her darling daughter who, inistead of tho light hearted, careless girl of a few month previous, was growing mood; and silent, apparently brooding over a nameless trouble. During the girl's stay at the home she re ceived repeated letters from Collier each one a repetition of the former tbat he oould not marry now but hoped to be so situated soon tha such a step ^rould be possible. In his several letters he stated that his home was variously at Indianapolis, Rushville and Dayton, O. His last latter written in the latter part of February, urged her to meet, him in Chicago, -where they would go housekeeping and she need never return home again. This letter the poor girl showed to her fond old mother on whose advice the proposition was promptly -refused, and Collier, the base lover, .advised to come after his sweetheart if hiK intentions wera good. If. wa« at this time that poor L^o divuijjs-.l to her mother the secret of her condition and with itiany tears confessed the heartlessness of her avowed lover, whose base betrayal of her confidence iu him had precipitated all her woes. About this time it appears that the girl commenced a correspondence with Mrs. Bullet, Matron of the Home for the Friendless at Indianapolis, but the responses of the matron all called for money, which not being able to supply, the girl remained herefentil three weeks ago, when her correspondence with the matron resulted in the completion of arrangements whereby she was allowed to enter the Home.

May 7, was received from thf> poor irirl iu .vhich she bewailed bitterly her lot. stating that she had been sent to the'hospi- tal, a miserably conducted place where vile service, poor food and iu- ufferable indignities were offered he patients. She also expressed the ear that she would not be able to eave the place alive. The poor 'irl's statement was prophetic. On Saturday Mr. Staley received a tele- 'ram containing the intelligence of lis daughter's death. The rest is old in the Sentinel's story given above. THE LOST IS FOUXI>.
