 +====== Smout ======
 +
 +Workmen when they are out of constant work, do sometimes accept of a day or two's work, or a week's work at another printing house: this by-work they call //​Smouting//​. — //M//. \\
 +In fact we only term it smouting when the business of a house is slack, or, in other words, when work is insufficient to employ fully the workmen regularly employed, and they go to some other house for temporary employment, till such time as there is sufficient for them in their own house, when they return.
