"I say, postman," he said, "whatever is the matter with your face ?" "Well," replied the postman, "I was walking down the street yesterday reading a postcard— —wrong thing to do, of course, but I was planished for it. A work man coming the opposite way ; lurched up against me, hit me in the mouth with a pickaxe and knocked a tooth out." "Oh, that was quite a dental operation wasn't it ?" laughingly commented the gentlemen, who sought to have a little joke. "Well, no," replied the post man. "He said it was an axe-i dental operation."
