A Husband . Tries . to Starve to Death His
[Paris Correspondence Cincinnati Enquirer.] V.
Last night, at the Comedie Francais, the
box '- at our right : was occupied by a very
distinguished-looking ■ couple, who, from
the nods and ' smiles ': that ' greeted " them
from the different parts of the house, were
evidently well ; known. The lady, not
more than 25 years of age, was tall, supple,
and elegant in , figure, and wore a toilet of
dark ; green velvet, embroidered about the
corsage and sleeves with gold, as is now the
fashion, and which was peculiarly becom
ing to her delicate complexion, just tinged
with pink, and to her, dark-blue eyes and
golden hair, which 'was 1 1 worn low on the
neck, and terminated with a few long care
leas curls. 7 Her vivacity ' and • grace could
be seen in every movement, not j one of
which escaped the jealous eyes of her com
panion. , j He was at least fifteen or twenty
years ' her; senior, short, rather stout, and
with a face that would be called handsome
as far aa features and- color go, but brutal
in its expression. -His iron-gray hair, fell
in short, thick locks over his low forehead,
almost shading his intensely bright black

HIS SARDONIC SMILE. :■_ i."-
Convinced that they were "somebody,"
your correspondent 'inquired'- in regard to
them, and was greeted with expressions of
surprise that in a fortnight the heroine of
a lamentable scandal had not been pointed
out. It seems that the iron-gray gentleman
with the jealous eyes was M. Edmond'B."
I refrain from the full name until .finding
out how much protection the English lan
guage is against a suit • for libel. Mon
sieur B. married five years ago the beauti
ful daughter of an impoverished physician.
Mademiselle being - without a . dot, and
therefore, in France, most unmanageable,
was esteemed fortunate in having capti
vated the affections of a wealthy man, and
received the congratulations of her friends
when established in a handsome hotel in
the Faubourg : St. Honore, with means to
entertain luxuriously and to dress extrava
gantly if she wished.' It lis hardly neces
sary to say that she wished and did do
both, but that being at perfect liberty to,
in time she grew weary and longed for
more diversion than could be found in balls
and elegant gowns. Being adorably pretty,
she . did not lack ' for adorers, and the
wished-— r diversion presented itself in the
shape of a dangerously handsome and
dashing young officer. . The affair was one
of coquetry and gallantry, say the friendv
of Mine. 8., who call her
AN ABUSED ANGEL,

enemies well, what they Bay need not be
recounted, but at any rate Monsieur 15.,
jealous, vindictive and determined on re
venge, resolved to bring affairs to a crisis.
French people love to do things dramati
cally, so Monsieur B. j laid a clever little
plot. When it was time to leave for Trou
villc, the favorite, watering-place, and
where they owned a charming residence,
he ordered all his domestics, except his
wife's maid, to go first and get the villa in
readiness for their arrival. When they
were fairly out of the way he suddenly
announced to the golden-haired Madame B.
that a business lii.pat summoned him to
Lyons, where he would probably be de
tained a couple of days, and that mean
while she must await his return and escort
to Trouviile. Madame smiled an angelic
assent, and after the apparent departure of
her iron-gray lord proceeded to enjoy her
self, unsuspecting of the trap laid for her.
Naturally the theater suggested itself.
She went in her carriage, accompanied by
an ancient lady friend, and enjoyed the
first night of "Daniel Rochat," lt'ding
home she left the duenna at her residence
and proceeded alone ; but when she left
her carriage at the door of her establish
ment, she saw pacing up and down in the

her maid, the only creature in the house,

passed up into the richly-furnished draw

aside her mantle and hat, bid the young
officer be brief in what he had to say, as
she felt she was committing a frightful
imprudence in allowing his presence at that
hour. What he did say nobody seems to
know, but at any rate it took him almost
an hour, and it is possible that hi* elo

great door below was heard to open and
close with a dull clang, succeeded by foot
steps on the stairs of polished wood. Know,
ing her husband's disposition, and terribly
alarmed as she saw the impossibility of
any explanation being accepted, Madame
B. yielded to her first impulse, and half
dragged the young officer through her
sleeping-room into the dressing-room ad

locked the door.* Scarcely had she re-en

entered," amiable, smiling, and with a brief
explanation that, having found his presence
quite unnecessary in Lyons, he had re
turned on the first train. ■■■ He asked no

Synopsis of the Annual Report of Secre
[By Telegra p'a.J
7 Washington,' December. 2d.— Secretary
Schurz, in j his report "on • Indian Affairs,'
says experience has j strengthened his [ con
viction that the '* management; of : Indian
affairs should continue .to Ibe intrusted to
the civic and not the military authorities.
His : arguments ; on - this ' topic have been
fully foreshadowed jin j former annual re
ports. He again quotes with emphasis the
conclusion of the report of the Peace Com
mission of 1878, signed by Generals Sher
man, Harney, Kerry and Auguer, in which
these | distinguished " officers |of the | army
said, among other things : to the same pur
port : "If we intend to have war with the
Indians, the Indian Bureau should go to
the ; Secretary of ■ War. : If we intend to
have peace it should be in the civil depart
ment." I desire to say that it has not
been the purpose of this department under
. my administration, while ordering all un
necessary outlays of money, to cut | down
expenses merely for the purpose of making
a striking exhibition of economy. -. The
history of Indian affairs shows that ill
judged parsimony not unfrequently led to
serious trouble and very costly - complica
tions.' I am noV convinced that a gener
ous appropriation for agricultural imple
ments, for stock and cattle, to be distrib
uted among the Indians, and for educa
tional facilities made at the time when the
temper of our whole Indian population is
such as .to receive such aid in the right
spirit, would be judicious. The case of
the Ponca« receives minute attention.
Looking at the present condition of things,
it may be said without exaggeration . that
on the : whole the Indian situation is now
more hopeful than ' ever before. The de
sire of the Indians to maintain friendly re
lations with their white neighbors, to go to
work for their own support, to cultivate
the soil, to acquire ; permanent homes, to
have their children educated, and to assim
ilate themselves to the civilization of the
country, is growing stronger and . more
general every day.
:7,'.V V • . THE BIG TREES. "' . : .
He again calls attention to the fact that
the waste and destruction of the redwood
and big trees of California have been and
continue to be bo great aa to cause the ap
prehension that in " the course of a -few
years these magnificent species may entirely
disappear unless some measures are taken
to preserve at least a portion of them, and
he renews his recommendation of last year
that the President be authorized to with
draw from sale or other disposition an area
at least equal to a township in the coast
range in the northern, and an equal erea in
the southern part of California, upon which
these interesting trees grow. He remarks
thßt the bill introduced in Congress to ac
complish this object has not yet been acted
on, and adds : " It seems important that if
any measure for the preservation of these
species of trees is to be taken at all, it
should be done as soon aa possible. _ I
therefore once more commend thia subject
to the attention of Congress. The Secre
tary also renews his last year's recommen
dation for the enactment of Senator Ed
munds' bill to provide for the settlement of
-I VAT 1 LAND CLAIMS
In all tho territory derived from Mexico,
except California. He says, with reference
to the Public Lands Commission, the bill
now pending in Congress "The import
ance of the pa— age of this or some similar
bill by Congress cannot bo overestimated.
Existing laws for the autvey and disposal
of the public domain were enacted mainly
while the Government was disposing of the
public lauds cast of the Missouri river.
The climate, soil and products ol the laud
west of the one hundredth meridian are so
entirely different from those east of it as to
require legislation specially applying there
to. Kaily action upon this lull is urgently
demanded by the public iu'-reats. As the
settlement of our Western Tetritories pro
gresses, I leg that the attention of Con
tress be invited to this important subject.
The main features of legislation urged by
Secretary Schurz for the lection of Gov
ernment timber and the
PRES ERVATIOS 01* THK man—
Oi the country are the following : First,
that the Government should be authorized
to sell timber from the lands principally
valuable for the timber (.rowing on them,
that is to say, not suite I to agricultural or
mineral purposes, ata reasonable price above
the nominal rates to supply all domestic
needs and all wants of local business en
terprises, as well as of commerce ; the lat
ter so far as compatible with the public
interests. Secondly, that these sales of
public timber be so regulated as to preserve
the necessary proportion of the forests (on
public lands from waste and indiscriminate
destruction. Such a policy can, in his
opinion,, be carried out without great cost,
and in perfect justice to tbeaettlersnndbusi
ness enterprises of the country. It is
virtually the policy proposed by the
Public Land* Commission in their, re*
port, and the bill submitted to Congress at
its latt session. He again urges the enact
ment of a law prescribing severe penalties
for willful negligence or carelessness in
setting of tires upon public lands and pro
viding for the recovery of damages sas
tained. He also recommends a liberal ap
propriation for the extension of a geo
graphical survey all over the United States.
He recommends that four new Government
buildings, of adequate size, bo erected on
the three blocks surrounding Lafayette
Square, opposite the Executive Mansion,
for the Interior Department. . The report
also contains a* synopsis of reports fur
nished , under special instructions of the
Department by the Government of ' the
various Territories, setting forth their ma
terial resources and their respective attrac
tions for immigrants. ' ■.■..-"-.

Operations of the San Francisco and Car
; . son Mints.
[By Telegraph ]
},\ Washington, December sth. — The re
port of the Director of tho Mint shows that
the amount of gold and silver bullion dis
tribute among the Mints during the last
fiscal year 1 was j as | follows : 7 Tbe Mint at
San Francisco received : $28,545,544 46 in
gold, and $10,842,390 58 in silver. Carson
received §368, 17451 in gold, and $022,
--291 88 in silver. 7 The | Director j says that
the superior facilities | at San Francisco for
filling with dispatch orders ! for the speedy
delivery of j silver in China, and the dimin
ished production of silver in the States and
Territories contiguous to the Pacific Coast,'
have operated to carry the price of bullion
at San Francisco above the New York and
London prices, rendering it difficult at
times to purchase at - market rates silver
bullion j for I delivery at the Pacific Coast
Mints. This compelled a suspension .of
coinage at Carson from November, 1879, to
May, 1880, the stock of silver bullion at the
iormer 7 date I having become reduced to
1,234,241 ■ standard ; ounces. :- - The . pur
chase , ; and . reception ; of j I silver £ j bull
ion ', was, | however, ■■-. in the : meantime
continued, ; : and ' the : stock ! . accumulated
by April, 1680, to * 22, 705, 754 standard
ounces, which " justified ; a resumption of
coinage, but the whole amount of silver
bullion obtained for the Carsou Mint dur
ing the : year | amounted, : at its coinage
value, to $59,762,428. | The total purchase
of silver during the year for San Francisco
was 7.331 standard ounces, at a cost of
$7,568,331 06. The total for Carson of
51. 358,338 standard ounces cost $52,723,
--378. The statement of the distribution of
appropriations and expenditures 7 shows :
Sail Francisco, $387,400 of appropriations
arid $32,366 150 of i !'ii'"Rures; Carson,
§1 -166.1 SO ■ot appropriations and - 1 9,715,.

$15101,448 expenses; Carson, $"J56,442
charges colli cted and $553 759 expenses.
Ihe igbingand assaying were in all cases
satisfactory. Under the heading of tho
." Condition of the Mints and Assay Of
fices," the Director says that the coinage
at the San Francisco Mint in 18S0 was
$13,000,000 leas of gold and $6,000,000
of silver than in 1878, owing to the
diminished production of gold and silver
on the Pacific coast. The total coinage of
gold pieces was 2,284,500 ; of ailver pieces,
7,910,000 ; total value, $36,053,000. Car
son coined 38,567 gold pieces and 408. 000
silver pieces, valued at $654,790. Refer
ence is made to the Reynolds patent suit,
pending 'in the California Circuit Court,
against the Superintendent and Melter and
Refiner of the San Francisco Mint. The
Director says the process of parting at the
Mint has been in use since it was organ
ized, and was continued by the present
Superintendent solely for the benefit of the
United States, and if advantage has ac
crued it has been to the United States, and
not to these officers. They ought not to
be required to pay or defend themselves at
their own expense in this suit. The plain
tiff justifies his suit for the alleged team
that DO Court I as jurisdiction of any suit
i which he could . bring against the
United States.. The Director, . there
fore, rtegmmends that the ' jurisdic
tion of the Court of Claims be « xtended
to hear thia case, or legislation be extend eel
to enable the patentee to test the validity
of his claim, i and make the Government
ami not the officers responsible, With
reference to the indebtedness of the San
Francisco Mint to the Treasury, arising out
of the deficit! of officers prior to the or
ganization of the Mint Banal and the ap
pointment of the ■' present officers, whose
accounts are satisfactorily adjusted, and
the loss on the sale of sweeps aud wastage
prior to the same year, of which there is no
hope of collecting, . the Director re-om
mends their cancellation by an appropria
tion of the necessary amount from the
profit on coinage or from moneys in the
United States Treasury. There were
1,046,500 standard, silver dollars distribu
ted from the New Orleans Mint and 932,

CURIOSITIES OF THE VOICE.
Dr. Delaunay, in a paper read recently
before the French Academy of Medicine,
gives some details on the history snd
limits of the human voice, which be ob
tained after much patient research. Ac
cording to tho doctor, the primitive in
habitants of Europe were all tenors ; their
descendants of the present day are bari
tones, and their grand sons will have semi
baas voices. Looking at different races,
he calls attention to the fact that inferior
races, such as the negroes, etc., have
higaer voices than white men. The voice
has also a tendency to deepen with a^e—
1 the tenor of sixteen becoming the bari
tone at twenty-live, »nd bass at t'uirtv-live
Fair-comple.xioned ' people have higher
voices than the dark-skinned, the former
being usually sopranos or tenors, the latter
I contraltos or basses. "Tenors," says the
' doctor, "are slenderly built ard thin;
basses are stoutly made and corpulent."
This may be the rule, but one is inclined
to think there are more exceptions to it
: than are necessary to prove the rule. The
game remark applies to the assertion that
thoughtful, intelligent men have always a
■'ctrp- toned voice, whereas triflers and friv
olous persons have soft, weak voices. I Tho
tones of the voice are perceptibly higher,
he .points '■ out, before than alter a meal,
which is the reason why tenors dine early
in order that their voices may not suffer.
Prudent singers eschew strong drinks and
spirituous j liquors, . especially a tenors, bnt
basses can eat and drink • generally with
impunity. ?■ ■':'.' The south," Bays the doctor,
"furnishes the tenors and the north the

Solomon Jones of Bloon— burg, Md., was
70 when," after many years of poverty, he
received $'2,000 in pension money." . He had
no relatives to leave it to when he died,
and therefore made up his mind to spend it

tho idea of improving the lands adjacent
to Napa river, by a general system of
straightening and cleaning throughout its
entire '- length, v which should -. enable the
waters to be more rapidly and thoroughly
drawn off and free the adjacent land* of
