for having, whilst in that degraded condition, deliberately injured all the property on which they could lay hands. Were not the evidences of their guilt patent to all in the hecatombs of the destroyed? Then they were charged with all the evils wrought in the houses, and on their indignant denial Harry and Tommy, each in his own home, according to their concerted scheme of action, stepped forward and relieved their minds of the deadly weight that had for long in secret borne them down. The story of each ran that time after time he had seen the butler, when he thought that nobody was looking, knocking knives together in the pantry, chairs and books and pictures in the drawing-room and study, dolls in the nursery, and plates in the kitchen. Then, indeed, was the master of each household stern and uncompromising in his demands for justice. Each butler was committed to the charge of myrmidons of the law under the double charge of drunkenness and wilful destruction of property.

A strange story of two friends who like to test things by smashing them together. It starts out as vandalism and ends up rather painful to read. The writing is arch and formal while the things being described are gruesome. I suppose if Swift's A Modest Proposal could be published, this could be too.


Short story about two boys who develop a taste for torture. They starting off destroying household objects, but soon become bored and move onto living things to torture and destroy.( Their torture sessions are described with some detail.) All the while they get away with it, blaming servants and others when their carnage is found out. No justice for them in the end - they live to become grandfathers. What makes this story worth reading is beyond my understanding. I guess if you're into toture movies, you might like it.
