'I :E OLD iAYING that " a thing of beauty is a
:,y lbrevet," was somerhat reversed on Caris:
ras Eve. to the detriment of a praetic-l joker.
,lany of our readers have no doubt seen the toy
whicn consats of an artificial flower to which is
ettacte:d a syricge or india rubber bag filed with
tgi.id easen.e or water. used to deceive people by
t aces.g them to smell the fower while the syringe
Is concealed in the hand, and squirting the liquid
into their faces. The toy is ingeniously and pret
tily conceived, and the joke. although not alto
gether refined, is scarcely offensive wben prac
ticed amoong ktimate friends; the case is quite
different, however, when the joker chooses
a perfect stranger for his victim, as the
sequel will serve to prove. On the day
named above, an individual, provided with one of
these toys, and who bad evidently too often In
dnlged in drinking gg-nogg, accosted a gentle
man, a perfect stranger to him, attthe oorer of
Canal and Bourboa, and impertinently ask-d him
to treat. The gentleman, being aware of the con
dition of his interlocutor, quietly told him that he
did not drink. Thereupon, and repeating his de
mand, the inebriated individual twice squirted
some of the liquid contained in the toy upon the
strarger's clothes. The latter, outof compassion,
kept his temper and otely reqested the ine
briate to desist. " Well," said the indvi al, "if
I do not desist what will you do! ?" "I do not
know," was the answer," but such jokes are not
according to my tastes." Far from having the
desired effect, thelpolite language of the gentleman
only brought a ful stress of water late bhis foe
from the toy in the individual's hand. Forbearance
had now ceased to be a virtue, the gentleman rais
ing a stick which he had in his hand, dealt such a
severe blow at the head of his aggressor that the
scalp of the latter was cut open about six inches
a lrrgth, an,! he fell to the ground sweltering in
his bkcod. The gentleman then quietly waited
away. The most su'prising part of this little
drama was that the injury received by the intoxi
cated man was not much more severe, for the stick
used upon hru was one of the kind wade of cow
tide. tightly fitting arounid a steel rod, which was
tir, ken in two places by the violence of the blow.
i:,jpassasd. we might say that the gentleman
who administered the correction, altioungh of a
mild ant kindly disputei:.jnt, is the wrong man to
attack with impunity. The moral of this episode
is contained in the following French axiom: Jeu
de mrain, jae de rilein.
