As I tear out pages one-by-one, I'm distracted by the occasional word, to wit:
debag: To remove the trousers from (a person) as a punishment or for a joke, e.g.:‘We ought to debag him,’ he cried. Appleby was thereupon debagged; but as… he continued to walk about trouserless and dispense hospitality without any apparent loss of dignity, the debagging had to be written down a failure.
From Edward Compton Mackenzie's Sinister Street (1914).
