An Irish schoolmaster, thinking to improve on this, wrote a copy for one of his boys with the proverb thus altered.—"Idleness covers a man with nakedness." The inhabitants of a pretty large town in the west of Scotland were once amused by the novel appearance of a chimney- sweep, who was seen plodding along with one-half of his face washed, shaved, and trimmed, and the other unshorn and as black as ebony. On being questioned as to his motives for washing half his face, he replied, "Only half the duty's off the soap yet."
