AURICLEn. The outlying provinces of the ear, as distinguished from the interior counties.

Dogmatic Dan, with more of ears than brain,
Was laying down the law to Mary Jane.

A sudden anger dyed his cheeks with red;
He seized his hat. “My auricles!” said he—
“Madam, good-bye; you’ve seen the last of me!”
