development from articles of mere

centuries. The Greeks considered It
a breach of etiquette to enter a house
without warning the Inmates. Spar­
tans gave this notice h.v shouting their
arrival, but the Athenians announced
themselves by using tlie knocker,

chained to the door, but unfriendly
visitors sometimes wrenched It from
the door and used It as a weapon of
offense against the Inmates. It was
then that the form was changed to
that of a heavy ring fastened bv a
strong clamp or plate to ttie door, thus
serving the double purpose of knock­

and through their conquests to nearly
every country of Europe. It was not
