Summary The man from Ironbark, a real bushman, is visiting Sydney for the first time. He finds the rush and bustle too exhausting so he decides to rest in a barber's and enjoy a shave. The barber, 'small and flash' tries to pull a joke on the bushman but comes off second best because his victim is a man whose actions speak louder than words
