Faust’s Army

“Yes, my dear, working a soup-kitchen. It was Faust’s little way of keeping all the bums and beggars on the street on his payroll. Several days a week he would fix up some kind of Cajun gumbo or stew or some other concoction and feed anyone who needed a meal. Why do you think those bums rushed into that bar and started that fight? You’d be amazed what starving people will do for a hot meal. They’d spy, steal, or even risk their lives for you. I have to admit, Faust had a good system worked out. There were so many homeless people in New Orleans, by feeding them, he had himself a small army at his command.”
