QUAINT OLD INN NAMES.
Some of the Peculiar Signs One May
Read in England.
"Man Loaded With Mischief' Is the
name of an inn in the Madingley rop'
Cambridge, but it is at stranger than
many others. At Underwood4 Notts, is
an inn called "The Toad In the Hole,"
and in the neighborhood of Somer
cotes, "The Old House at Home." An
other inn at the same place Is called
"The Old English Gentleman."
It is a debatable point .whether the
sign of "The Man Loaded With Mis
chief' was painted by Hogarth. But it
is like his satire, for it represents a
man carrying a woman.
Many peculiar signs are the result
of a misconception. "The Bag o' Nails"
is really "The Bacchanals." "The Goat
and Compasses" is an ignorant shot at
the old motto, "God encompasses us,'.
while "The George and Cannon" is .a
modern corruption of George- Canning,
who was prime minister when the inn
One of the funniest of these corrup
tions is "The Iron Devil," a corruption
of "Hirondelle" (swallow). It is said
that the inn called "The Pig and Tin
dea Box" was originally "The Ele
phant and Castle," but a very poor
artist was engaged to paint the sign,
and somebody said it looked like a pig
and tinder box, and the name stuck
until it ousted the old one.
"The Plum and Feathers," an inn in
Oxford, should be "Plume of Feath
ers." and "The Bose of the Quartn
Sessions' was originally "La Rose des
Quatres Saisons.- One might think
"The Ship and Shovel" belonged to the
same c-ategory. but it does not. The
reference is to Sir Cloudesley Shovel,
the puowder monkey who became an
admiral in the reign of Queen Anne.
