The Hypnotist by Ambrose Bierce

A young man has the kind of eyes that engage others. He is a natural hypnotist and also a sociopath. As a teenager he routinely takes the lunch of a young girl who is convinced that she has eaten it. He makes a prison warden think he is an ostrich and the man dies while trying to swallow a doorknob. His own parents are made to believe they are wild broncos and they fight to the death.
