“This deals with a quarrel between Tompkins (an amateur Trumpeter) and Dauber (an artist). The latter is naturally disturbed by the efforts of his neighbour, and plans a sweet revenge. The artist tries the water cure, which Tompkins fails to appreciate, and in the end music and art become terribly mixed.”
