What is SHAVE?

While “shave” is sometimes used to denote the act of obtaining the property of another by oppression aud extortion, it may be used in an innocent sense to denote the buying of existing notes and other securities for money, at a discount. Hence to charge a man with using money for shaving is not libelous per se. See Stone v. Cooper, 2 Denio (N. Y.) 301; Trentham v. Moore, 111 Tenn. 346, 76 S. W. 004; Bron- son v. Wiman, 10 Barb.
