What does in his ways mean "in “Small, quick in his ways"? Could you explain? The manager of the league, another red-headed man by the name of Duncan Ross, promptly hired Wilson. Wilson’s job was to copy pages of the Encyclopedia Britannica from ten in the morning until two in the afternoon. During those four hours, he was forbidden to leave the office for any reason. Wilson worked there for eight weeks and was paid well. Then suddenly the whole business came to an end. On that morning he went to work and found a card pinned to the door, which read: THE RED-HEADED LEAGUE IS DISSOLVED. Mr. Wilson said, “Well, I want to know who played this trick on me, and why.” “You were wise to come to me,” said Holmes. “How did you find the assistant of yours?” “I picked him because he was willing to work for half the wages.” “What is he like?” “Small, quick in his ways, no hair on his face, with an old cut above his eye.” “That will do, Mr. Wilson. I think I can give you an opinion in a day or two.”

these are separate ideas, separated by a comma... ´´small´´....he is small ´´quick in his ways``....he is fast at what he does.
