THE WHY OP IT.

We all know that a wooden Indian
is But up In front of a cigar or tobacco
sCore, three balls at a pawnbroker's
door and a striped jwlo immovably
fixed rtotnewhero near to th entrance
to a barbers shop, says the St. Imi'ih
Kopublic. Hut why?
Antiquarians tull us that the wooden
Indian is a tobacco sign, because to
bacco i an American weed and that it
was originally used by tho Indians,
it tit the samo antiquarian gets tangled
occasionally and tells you that tobacco
has been in uso for over 8,000 years
among the Chinese. Mcyen. in hts
"Geography of Plants," la of the opin
ion that the smoking of tobacco is of
great antiquity among the Chineso, be
cause ho has observed carvings of to
bacco pipes upon monuments whose
ages run back into the thousands of
years, and thoy are exactly like the
Celvsttal tobacco pipe to-day, too. If
this Is a fact it would bo much mora
appropriate to use the figure of a Chi
naman In place of the wooden Indian
now used by dealers in the "filthy
Three reasons are given to account
for the origin of the pawnbroker's
fcign. One says that tho balls are used
because they were the emblems of St.
Nicholas, who is said to have given
three purses of gold to three virgin
ulsters to enable thorn to marry. An
other legend attributes the use of the
three balls to the members of the Lom-1
bard amlly, the first great money
lenders of England. They were drug
gists before they became capitalists,
and used the three goldeu pills in
memory of their calling. Still another
story attributes their .original use to
tho Modicl family of Franco. Tho
Med Ids were money-lenders, who used
the three pills as a pun on their mod-kal-sounding
Last, but not least, tho barbers of
long ago were barber-surgeons, but
the rapid advance of surgical science
has caused them to fall from their
high estate. The gilt knob at the end
of the barber polo of to-day represents
h brass basin, which but a few decades
since was actually suspended from the
pole. The basin had a notch cut in it
to fit the throat and was used in lath
ering tho customer, preparatory to
shaving him. The pole represents the
staff held by the patient who came to
the barber-surgeon to bo bled. The
two spiral stripes paluted around It
signify the two bandages, one for
twisting around the arm previous to
the act of phlebotomy, or blood-lotting,
the other for binding when the opera
tion was completed.
