--The Harrisburg (Pa.) Telegraph says: ‘"A lady has been in the habit of picking her teeth with pins.
A trifling humor was the consequence, which terminated in a cancer.
The brass and quick silver used in making these pins will account for this circumstance.
Pins are always pernicious to the teeth, and should never be used for toothpicks."’
