Female Talkers

IT was customary in some parish churches for the men to be placed on one

side, and the women on the other. A clergyman, in the midst of his

sermon, found himself interrupted by the talking of some of the

congregation, of which he was obliged to take notice. A woman

immediately rose, and wishing to clear her own sex from the aspersion,

said: Observe, at least, your reverence, it is not on our side.--So

much the better, good woman, so much the better, answered the

clergyman; it will be the sooner over.
