"toucher" Definition

  1. “as near as a TOUCHER,” as near as possible without actually touching.—_Coaching term._ The old Jarveys, to show their skill, used to drive against things so closely as absolutely to touch, yet without injury. This they called a TOUCHER, or TOUCH-AND-GO, which was hence applied to anything which was within an ace of ruin.
