I brought this cat for Carol and Joe ... got it in Singapore in January. Here it was waving me goodbye ... The Maneki Neko - literally "Beckoning Cat" - also known as Welcoming Cat, Lucky Cat, Money cat, or Fortune Cat - sometimes incorrectly labelled Chinese Lucky Cat - is a common Japanese sculpture, often made of ceramic, which is believed to bring good luck to the owner. The sculpture depicts a cat (traditionally a Japanese Bobtail) beckoning with an upright paw, and is usually displayed - many times at the entrance - in shops, restaurants, pachinko parlors, and other businesses. Some of the sculptures are electric or battery-powered and have a slow-moving paw beckoning. In the design of the sculptures, a raised left paw supposedly attracts money, while a raised right paw protects it. Maneki Neko come in different colors, styles, and degrees of ornateness. In addition to sculptures, Maneki Neko can be found as keychains, piggy banks, air fresheners, and miscellaneous ornaments. To Westerners it may seem as if the Maneki Neko is waving rather than beckoning. This is due to the difference in gestures and body language recognized by Westerners and the Japanese, with Japanese beckoning by holding up the hand, palm out, and repeatedly folding the fingers down and back up, thus the cat's appearance. Some Maneki Neko made specifically for Western markets will have the cat's paw facing backwards, in a beckoning gesture more familiar to Westerners. Maneki Neko can be found with either the right or left paw raised (and sometimes both). The significance of the right and left raised paw differs with time and place. The most common belief is that the left paw raised brings in customers, while a right paw brings good luck and wealth, although some believe the opposite. Still others say that a left paw raised is best for drinking establishments, the right paw for other stores. (Those who hold their liquor well are called hidari-kiki in Japan, "left-handed".) It is commonly believed the higher the raised paw, the greater the luck. Consequently, over the years Maneki Neko's paw has tended to appear ever higher. Some use the paw height as a crude method of gauging the relative age of a figure. Another common belief is that the higher the paw, the greater the distance good fortune will come from. Some Maneki Neko feature battery- or solar-powered moving arms endlessly engaged in the beckoning gesture. Maneki Neko usually have some sort of decoration around their neck. This can be a neckerchief or a scarf but the most common attire is a collar, bell and decorative bib. These items are most likely in imitation of what was common attire for cats in wealthy households during the Edo period. Red collars made from a red flower, the hichirimen, were popular and small bells were attached for decoration and to keep track of the cat's whereabouts. The bib might also be related to the bibs often decorating statues of the divinity Jizo Bosatsu. Protective statues of Jizo can be found guarding the entrances to Japanese shrines and graveyards. Jizo is the protector of sick and dying children and grateful parents of children recovered from illness will place a bib around Jizo as a gift of thankfulness. Maneki Neko are sometimes depicted holding a coin; usually a gold coin called a koban (???), used during the Edo period in Japan. A koban was worth one ryo, another early Japanese monetary unit, though the koban most Maneki Neko hold is indicated to be worth ten million ryo (???), and extraordinary sum of money. A ryo can be imagined as worth a thousand dollars, although the value of the coin, like the value of the dollar, varied considerably. In Japanese, the idiom "koban to cats" is the traditional equivalent of pearls before swine. The coin obviously ties into the cat's part in bringing good fortune and wealth. It is not surprising then that one can often find Maneki Neko used as banks, a practice which goes back at least to the 1890s, much like the Western piggy bank. Sometimes, pennies and other small coin denominations are left on the Maneki Neko as offerings. This is a practice somewhat related to that of leaving coins in a fountain or wishing well. Maneki Neko are typically made of ceramic. However, cheaper Maneki Neko can be made of other materials ranging from plastic to wood to papier-mache to clay, while expensive Maneki Neko may be made of jade or gold. The moving Maneki Neko are usually made of plastic. While it is believed that Maneki Neko first appeared during the later part of the Edo period (1603–1867) in Japan the earliest documentary evidence comes from the 1870s, during Japan's Meiji Era. It is mentioned in a newspaper article in 1876 and there is evidence kimono-clad Maneki Neko were distributed at a shrine in Osaka during this time. An ad from 1902 advertising Maneki Neko indicates that by the turn of the century they were popular. Beyond that, the exact origins of Maneki
Butch Cassidy and the Bank of Montpelier By Jake Putnam Pistol-whipped bank teller Bud Mackintosh testified in court that the number 13 was the cause of it all. “It was the 13th day of the month; after the 13th deposit of $13 at 3:13.” Mackintosh knew a thing or two about luck because he was robbed on Friday the 13th of August in 1896. It's the most infamous bank robbery in Idaho history, masterminded by Butch Cassidy and the Wild Bunch in Montpelier. On a hot, cloudless August afternoon at 833 Washington Street in Montpelier, three strangers on horseback rode through dusty streets. That day only dogs and merchants and farmers stirred in the heat. Farmers across Bear Lake County were putting up hay when the cowboys tied their horses to a hitching post near the bank. Butch Cassidy, Elzy Lay and Bob Meeks spent weeks scouting the bank from Cokeville just east of Bear Lake across the Wyoming state line. For cover the three outlaws worked on the Emelle ranch operated by the wife of the prominent Montpelier jeweler. She recalled later in court that the cowboys were driving cattle for about two weeks. She added that they were the best ranch hands she’d ever had, but heavily armed. She said the cowhands made frequent trips into Cokeville and Montpelier at odd hours of the day and night. Later in court it all made sense. Cassidy it turns out was a detail man. His trips to town were recon missions for the bank job and in no time he learned: that with the last cutting of the hay in Bear Lake County, farmers paid back loans to the bank and the cash drawers were full. He also learned that the sheriff made rounds out in the county in the afternoons and Thursday was the slowest day of the week. The outlaws also scouted escape routes and places to cache relay horses for the getaway. Friends across the border in Star Valley said that Cassidy and the boys had wintered there after getting out of prison on Jan. 20. They said Cassidy was making an honest living working as a cowboy on nearby ranches. They described Cassidy as tough and hardened yet still kind despite two years in the Wyoming state pen. In stories handed down, many Star Valley residents recalled Cassidy living at the Morgan place in Auburn, working at Seth Putnam's sawmill and when the worst part of winter hit and things got tough, somehow he came up with a side of beef for starving families. Many a resident said that Cassidy was a loyal friend who prided himself on keeping promises. Star Valley pioneer Pearl Davis has said that Cassidy loved music and went to the dances Saturday nights that winter at the Rock Church in Auburn. He often sat with his back against the wall so he could see people coming through the front door. Lay and Meeks would listen to her father’s fiddle and watch the people dance. She said no one was more fun-loving and fond of practical jokes than Cassidy. But Butch Cassidy had a dark side. Stealing was his business and god help anyone that stepped in his way. He stood about 5-foot-10 and weighed in at a slim 155 pounds. He was quick on his feet, always packed a six-shooter and it’s said he could drive nails at the pull of a trigger. Cassidy’s horsemanship was legendary, his ability to meticulously plan and execute robberies unmatched. He also had the ability to vanish for months at a time and he had shrewd public relations skills. Borrowing from Robin Hood, he robbed rich ranchers, railroads and banks and gave generously to widows, children and the poor. It was conflicting promises that painted Cassidy into a corner in August of 1896: his promise to go straight clashed with the promise to help former Wild Bunch member Matt Warner. Warner had landed in Ogden jail on murder charges and asked Cassidy for help. Butch had considered busting his buddy out, but the thought of another prison term led him hire the best lawyer money could buy; it was the least he could do to keep a friend from the gallows. Cassidy had also made a promise to Wyoming Gov. Bill Richards. Richards pardoned the outlaw and released him early from prison on a promise that he’d do his outlawing out of state and that’s what landed him in Montpelier, just a short ride from the border. He needed at least $3,000 to help pay for Warner’s attorneys. The two weeks at the Emelle place flew past and on Aug. 12, the Wild Bunch pulled up stakes and drew their pay. They spent the rest of that day caching supplies and fresh horses outside of town. That night they camped in nearby Montpelier Canyon. On Aug. 13 they rode up to a saloon on Washington Street next to the bank while Cassidy kept a close eye on the bank. When he saw the banker out front talking to two men he saw his chance, knowing that there was just one employee in the cage and another at a desk. He told Meeks to get the horses ready and gun down anyone that looked like trouble and then he and Elzy sprang into action. Bank President G. C. Gray was out front talking city politics to Montpelier City Co
