AN AWKWARD MISTAKE. An unfortunate gentleman named Voisin has been the victim of a strong resemblance he appears to bear t4) someone else. Walking along the Une de Vaugirard, Paris, lie suddenly saw a woman riisb in his direction, and throw something at him. M. Voisin instinctively ducked," and it is for- tunate he did so, for the woman had thrown a bottle full of vitriol at his face. The fluid drenched his clothes, burning them and slightly injuring him in one hand. What do you. mean by this ?" lie stammered out as soon as he couid recover him- self. The woman looked at him, and screamed. Good heavens," she exclaimed, "1 have made a mistake!" She was profuse in her apologies, but M. Voisin naturally thought that there are cases where apologies are hardly sufficient, and that this was one of them. On being given into custody, the woman explained that she had mistaken her victim for a man who, after living with her, had deserted her and her two children.
