The Old Knocker of Days Gone By.
Except on a very few doors in tbe older
Quarters of the city, the ancient knocker
aas passed away as too noisy to keep pace
with the advanced refinement of the age,
and the jangling bell has taken its place.
On tbe bell Jack's band is as heavy as his
master's, for there is no distinction between
rings. The servant, fancying that the
butcher s boy has come with the meat, may
open the door leisurely to find that the
president of the Lnited i-tates has called
cpon her master. The bell may be a deli
cute electrical contrivance, with a button
to be pressed or an engraved knob at the
end of a wire to be pulled or any other de
vice, but all anybody, be he hib or low,
can do w ith it is to ring it.
This, viewed from a democratic point of
view, is perhaps as it should be, and yet
there are old ladies and gentlemen in New
York who sigh for the knocker of old, when
they could say with the utmost confidence,
"Thr.t's father's knock," or "Mother's at
the door," and every one living in thehonso
was recognized by a knock that was dis
tinctively his or her own. These wore all
"double" knocks, some of them modest and
some, especially those of the younger mem
bers of the household, perhaps a little pre
tentious. When a strange "double" knock
was heiird at the door, it was evident that
a visitor was there and the family might
make hasty preparations for the reception
When a "single knock sounded, only a
tradesman, or a peddler, or, possibly, even
a beggar, was there, so, of course, thi serv
ants need not hurry. But when a rapid,
peremptory "Rap rap!" sounded, everybody
was anxious to run to the door, for that
was the letter carrier, or the postman, as he
was then called. New York Sun.
