Dummies

empty bottles, and drawers in an apothecary's shop, labelled so as to give the idea of an extensive stock. Chandlers' shop keepers and small general dealers use dummies largely, half-tubs of butter, bladders of lard, hams, cheeses, &c., being specially manufactured for them. Dummies in libraries generally take the form of “Hume and Smollett's History of England” and other works not likely to tempt the general reader.
