When did you wear it last? returned Miss Janet from the depths of a pile of laces.Pretty, dainty, little Mrs. Vail looked aggrieved. She had assumed one great burden in life, - the charge of her very intricate nervous system, - and it did seem unreasonable to expect her at the same time to have the care of her clothes.Janet! exclaimed Mr. Vail, turning upon his daughter indignantly, why do you make this interruption?
