Text Appearing Before Image:
the farmer andits antithesis in that of the shoe-black or undervalet, of the city, with brush in hand as theinsignia of his calling. The politician, themusician, the admiral for the sailors pipe, andNapoleon, which found its way to France fromEngland and into popular use there, are also ofthe innumerable assortment of stoppers usedin the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Thus can we appreciate the value, both actualand sentimental, of a trinket which has now be-come adaptable to present usage as a seal andan attractive accessory for the writing-table, forthe flat, circular end of the stopper is especiallysuited for the engraving of the coat-of-arms orcrest—this making the stopper do a double duty.
