Excerpt from Juvenile Instructor, Vol. 39: July 15, 1904<br><br>A short walk brought him to the Beer residence, and in response to a rap upon the door the Shanghai's wife shortly confronted him with an invitation to "walk right in."<br><br>That the poor woman was suffering from the effects of her late orgie was evident from the sickly pallor that rested upon her countenance, as well as the tell-tale wet bandage that encircled her head, and which occasionally she would press to her forehead as if to receive more effectually the relief that came from the coldness thereof.<br><br>She did not give the boy time to explain the object of his visit before she began to denounce her husband in the strongest terms possible.<br><br>"It is but a short time ago," said she, "that his father came down from Manchester to spend a few days with us, and even he could not escape having his pockets picked by his unnatural son. And now," continued she, "the wretch has tried his hand upon my cousin, the aged sailor, and robbed him of forty pounds, all gold, for which he is now likely to get a few years' imprisonment. I have had it in mind for some time to leave him," further said she, "and now am determined to sell out and return to my native place, Limerick, where my folks reside."<br><br>"Mrs. Beer," interrupted Allon, "what were your reasons for attacking me with that knife last evening, when I was trying to shield you from the brutal assaults of Captain Beer?"<br><br>The woman answered, that she must have been crazy drunk; as she did not remember much about it; "but anyhow," advised she, "you should never interfere between man and wife."<br><br>"I can assure you that in the future I shall avoid all possible contact with drunkards," rather innocently but almost bluntly answered Allon.<br><br>"I was just thinking of asking you to remain, and earn a few shillings by helping me to dispose of the house furniture; but as you are so saucy, I don't want to have anything to do with you," stiffly spoke the woman.<br><br>About the Publisher<br><br>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
