“The bookworm wipes his spectacles, lights his cigar, and is absorbed in his book, when the cat springs on to his shoulders, an annoyance for which he kicks her down stairs. Continuing the reading he spills some paraffin, is blown up into the air, and, finally lies in bed a pitiable object, but the victim of his own folly.”
