GLOVES IN EARLY DAYS.
They Were Often Made tu Ilrprcaent
? the Man "Who "Wore Them.
In tho onrly days every thing was not
regulated for the people, as It Is now,
by the government and the law courts.
Kurone was still young then, and peo
ple had rough and ready means of deal
ing with ono another, of buying and
selling or giving goods and property
and settling disputes. A glove, as It
was very close indeed to a mail's hand,
came la course of time to ho looked
upon as taking the place of the hand it
solf, ami sometimes took the man's
ploco and was made to represent him.
For example, to open a fair It wus
necessary then to have tho consent and
protection of the great lord In whoso
country it was going to he held. Those
who wished to open the fair would
come to the nobleman and petition him
to ho present. Ho might ho very husy,
or bored at tho idea of having to go, yet
he would know that It must he opened
or his people would be dlscontenjod.
So ho would say to the lenders of the
people: "No, my trusty fellows, I can't
open the fair In person, hut 1 will send
my glove to do It. You all know my
glove. Nobody has one like It In tho
country. It Is tho one my lady mother
embroidered for me in colored silks and
silver wire, and It has a deep violet
fringe. You can hang It above tho en
trance of your fair grounds as a slg:j
that you arc acting with my permis
sion. If any one disputes your right or
touches his master's glove I will attend
to him; that's all!" So tho glove would
travel in slate to open tho fair.?St.
