The Wife of a Once Millionaire Reduced to Abject Poverty. Scorned By the Butterfly Friends of Other and Better Days. Noiiwalk, July 14. Mrs.

Caroline Miller, colored, of Westport, well 'known in that little village for her lionesty and thrift, received from Manhasiett, L. one day this week a letter from Mrs. Georgiana AldenJ the contents of which show to what dejpths of poverty those in opulence mav tall. The writer is the widow of the late Stephen Alden, who for years was one of the -wealthiest men in the country She is now without monev or friends, is sutiering irom nunger anu wanx oi proper shelter, and is reduced to the sat I 1 'i lowest depths of poverty, and bes this poor woman, who was once employed in her household for aid. So reduced had she become that only 53 cents were in her purse, and two of them were used to buy the stamp for her letter.

Mrs, Miller sent 2 of her earnings, all she had left from her watres of the week previous. Before doing so, how- ever, she showed the letter to persons who hand asssociated with Mrs. Al den at a time when fortune smiled upon her, thinking that they were bet ter able than herself to answer the appeal. They offered no assistance. One of the parties to whom the letter was shown is the wue oi a weu-Known citizen, who, when the unfortunate lady was shining in society there, borrowed her diamonds, valued at many hundreds of dollars, to wear at an evening reception.

1 wenty years ago Mrs. A Men hus band was reputed to be worth from to 5,000,000. He had pre vious to that time been president of one of the banks in Albany, and was also a prominent resident and politician of that city. Subsequently he married, removt id to ew ork and became a broker in the stock exchange. By a series ot aaring manipulations ne maae the major portion of his ereat wealth.

He spent his summers est port, and at the expense of many thousands of dollars erected an elegant mansion, with spacious lawns and parks, and lived in princely style. His home was tilled with servants, a small army of workmen kept the house and grounds in the best possible order and a stable full of thor oughbreds with drivers and footmen, were always ready at a moment no tice. The quiet, easy-going citizens of the place were overawed at their neigh bors lavish expenditures. No society- event was quite 'complete unless1 Mr and Mis. Alden were present.

At last business reverses set in, heavy Tosses followed, and in a surprisingly short time money and property were swept awav to satisfy the claims of creditors. Mr. Alden died under the wok'liii his obligations, and his widow, shattered in health, started westward. For several years she remained on the Pacific Coast, but later returned East. She is now poverty-stricken and a wanderer, arid aid is now refused her even by those who at one time were her firmest friends.
