The Mischievous man

The Mischievous man was very useful. He made fun. He knew how to volunteer to shave a fellow with a big beard and moustache. He wouldn’t lend his razor, but he’d shave him. Very well — he shaves one cheek, one half the chin, one side of the upper lip, puts his razor in his pocket, walks off, and leaves his customer the most one sided chap in the army. He knew how to do something like this every day. What a treasure to a mess!
