L'École infernale

The Devil in the School House

A Country school room is first seen in this picture in which so many startling changes take place that the Master is bewildered and is driven mad by the antics of his satanic majesty. Satan performs a number of weird tricks on the of a Cabinet placed in the rear of the school room and finally disappears. The Master leaves the room after warning all the children to behave. He no sooner leaves then they romp and play, but hering footsteps they return hastily to their seats and are industrially at work when he enters. This is repeated several times but on each occasion the School Master is unable to catch his scholars at play. Satan again appears and after such action as to drive the Master frantic, suddenly disappears and pandemonium reigns supreme. Very funny.
