To SMOKE. v.a.

To SMOKE. v.a.

To SMOKE. v.a.
I. To scent by smoke, or dry in smoke.
Frictions of the back-bone with flannel, smoaked with pene-
trating aromatical substances, have proved effectual. Arbuthnot.
2. To smell out; to find out.
He was first smok’d by the old lord Lafea; when his dis-
Guise and he is parted, tell me what a sprat you shall find him?
Shakespeare’s All’s well that ends well.
Tom Tattle passes for an impertinent, and Will. Trippet
Begins to be smoked, in case I continue this paper. Addis. Spect.
3. To sneer; to ridicule to the face.
Smoke the fellow there.  Congreve.
