Here Is the reason:
In the o ’d days, when every man
who had any pretensions to being a
gentleman carried a sword. It waa the
custom for men when they met to

treachery to offer each other their
weapon hands— that Is, tbe hand that
w.wild be used to draw the sword, and
to withhold the hand waa usually the
signal for a fight
Ho filed did thla habit becom e that
long after men ceased to wear sword*
they still offered the weapon hand to
