The astonished Mexican answered, with a doleful shake of the bead, "No hay."
"Well," said M., "as I'm hungry, I ain't particular; let as have a little girl, then."
The poor man, still more horrified, declared- that there were none of these in the village.
M. then turned to him and inquired, "Well, show me a market where I can get a nice piece of a full-grown man,"
This was too much for the Mexican, and he took to his heels m the twinkling of a jackknife.
