The Intruder Rebuked





JERROLD and some friends were dining in a private room at a tavern.

After dinner the landlord informed the company that the house was partly

under repair, and requested that a stranger might be allowed to take a

chop at a separate table in the apartment. The company assented, and the

stranger, a person of commonplace appearance, was introduced, ate his

chop in silence, and then fell asleep, snoring so loudly and

inharmoniously that conversation was disturbed. Some gentlemen of the

party made a noise, and the stranger, starting from his sleep, shouted

to Jerrold, I know you, Mr. Jerrold; but you shall not make a butt of

me!--Then don't bring your hog's head in here, was the prompt

reply.
