TUESDAY EVENING, APEIL 20.
A Husband's Brutality.-Oscar and
Annie Offenbach occupy two rooms in the
third story of a house on Poplar street, Phil?
adelphia. They were married three year3
ago. On April 7 Offenbach took a friend
home with him. The friend during the
evening paid several compliments to Offen?
bach's pretty wife, which aroused his jeal?
ousy. After the visitor had gone Ofleubach
ordered his wife to her room and ho follow?
ed her, picking up a heavy poker on the
way and closing the door after him. She
begged him not to strike her. but he paid no
heed to her entreaties. Kolliog up his
sleeves, he beat her for several minutes over
the back with the poker. At length .she fell
to the door fainting. He then went out,
locking the door. The next morniog he re?
turned with a revolver. Placing it at her
breast he made her swear that she would
not call out of the window. Alter giving
her another beatiDg with the poker he
went away, locking her in as before. For
the whole day the wife went without food.
She was too terrified to make any out?
cry. When he returned from his work Of?
fenbach brought her a cup of black coffee
and a piece of bread, which ho waited for
her to est. When ehe had finished he beat
her again. She remained fastened in the
room until yesterday, all the time within
Bight of help, yet fearful of calling to her
neighbors. Her food consisted of t wo cups
of coffee and two morsels of bread a day.
Twice each day, mornintrand night, he beat
her with the poker, which from the force of
the blows was bent nearly out of shape.
Meanwhile the suspicions of other occupants
of the hou?e und i he neighbors were aroused,
and yesterday they to'd Patrolman Henry
that something must be wrong. The pn
trolman wen: to th?-door of the Offenbach
room, but there was no sound within. He
called out that he was a policeman. Mrs.
Ofleubach timidly replied that she was there,
but was afraid to open the door. Being as?
sured that she would be protected, she forc?
ed the fastenings from the inside and the
policeman was admitted. The room was in
a filthy state, aud Mrs. Offenbach was in a
deplorable condition. She said that for the
fourteen days she had been confined in the
room her husband gave her Innck bread
and coffee only. Her body and limbs were
covered with bruises, and her eyes had :i
wild Btare. She was almost on the verge of
insanity. She was taken to the Wayfarers'
Lodge, where her wounds were dressed.
Oflenbnch was arrested, and was held lor
trial. He is a paiuter bv trade.
"BHp't in the Bud."
Sad to say, many a good thing attains lo
nothing more than a fair beginning. On the
other hand it is a matter for congratulation
that the growth of some evil things may be
also promptly frustrated A large propor?
