A SIGNMAKER'3 LAMENT.
Decay of a I'.raucli of the l'aintlns llccl
iiess M'cirlia of Art.
Any person anxious to know what has be
come of the majority of tlio emblematic signs
which ton or Gl'tooii years ao huug half a
dozen in every block should visit any largo
sigmnaker's workshop. Tho oneo familiar
wiisc-solier's bunch of grapes, tho glover's
hand, tho locksmith's key, tho carpenter's
saw, tho blacksmith's mighty arm, tho
butcher's boar's head, tho hundred and ona
fljrres that fe.rmerly stK)il in front of tobac
conists1 fahops inviting customers to enter,
are all on duty s'e.olves in tho storerooms.
"They are all gone out,"1 said a signmaker,
ruefully looking over hi3 collection. "Truo,
the idea of painting tobacconists1 signs white
and making them look weird and ghost like
reviveel that particular sign for atimo and
brought back same of its old time effective
ness, but emblematic signs in general belong
to tho past. About all wo sell nowadays cro
mortars, boots and clocks. Singularly
enough the demand for them is not from
country houses, but from tho city. Oue
would think that city people in the hunt for
originality that business competition eora
lels would reject sooner than countrymen
tho oldest merchant's siu known to man.
Emblematic signs need pushing. They
ouht to bo Kiill a good advertifemcut.
Why, somo of them, particularly tho life
figures, are works of art. There arc wooden
and fuetailic Indians and leasts in stock that
pretentious sculptors would not be cibamed
of. Ixok at that bull's head and at that
bu.;t of Gambrinus! Look at the care aud
time it took to carve oven so simple a thing
as a gun and get it true to life. Emblematic
signs cro carved no. more. Those that are
built aro njiuto of iron, either cast or spun.
A uso for which somo of them yet command
a good prico is as weather vanes and as the
tops of flagstafrs. There are numerous men
in town who have expensive emblematic
vanes on their stables. I heard of one man
who took his indoors at night. It was so
ct3tly Le was afraid it would tempt thieves.
"But business in other kinds of signs is
brisk enough," ho continued. "We make
them of wood, iron, glass, mirrors, porcelain,
copper, wire, silk, velvet aud plush, The
signs in this city, as a wLolo, are sejeond in
artisticnecs only to those in New York, cud
that city's signs are second to none. Tho
tendency is all toward display, wilh a3 much
gold and glitter a3 possible. I wouldn't dare
gues3 how many Immlrcd3 of thousands of
dollars' worth of gold leaf tho cignmakers of
tho country use u;j in a year. Carved signs
aro the most expensive. It's no unoommoii
thing for a mfr'-Lmut tc plaster f 1,500 ta
.2,(XX) worth of signs on tho front of his
store." Chicago Times.
