Harel’s Pet Porker

In 1850 Harel, who was director of the Odeon,

kept in his house in the rue. Madame a handsome

little piglet which he loved so dearly that it was

allowed to sleep in his bedroom. Oddly enough,

the writer Jules Janin  (who had a pet goat) lived

in the same house: so did the actress Mademoiselle

Georges, with her Tom cat : so did J. de la Salle,

with his pug . These last three were constantly

complaining of the noisy grunting of Harel’s pig

and one day, when he was out of town, they got

together and slaughtered it .

Two days later, Harel returned : and he and the rest found themselves at

Janin’s table confronted by an endless variety of pork confections. ‘ Smells

good’, said Harel, as they took their places But as sausages succeeded hog’s

pudding, and so on, and when a superb piece of roast pork came to the table , he

began to wonder . The crime could be concealed no longer. Harel, hearing

their confession , shook his head slowly , nodded approval . ‘ Poor creature’, he

said. ‘ I loved him, true enough. But never so much ,I think , as today. He

was never more attractive, I must say.’
