A LADY of fashion, very talkative, quite toothless and stricken in hears, though wishing to be thought young, lately asked a wag of the faculty how it could happen that, at her time of life, she should have lost her teeth?
To which the other replied---
"I cannot really tell, my Lady, unless, as may be very well supposed, they have been worn away by your tongue!"
