Some yedrs a colonel commanding some marines was much exercised in his mind as to how to deal with two of his men who were continually fighting each other. At last he tut on a happy expedient. The next time the men were brought before him, he set them to clean all the windows in the barracks, one inside and the other outside, and neither to go to the next window till the other had finished. The next morning they started, and after glaring at one another for three or four windows the situation became too ludicrous. They both hurst out laughing, became great friends, and both got on well together.
