STORIES OF OUR SOUTHLAND. |
A Romaneo in tho Life of John How
ard Payne, Author of "Home,
(Linroy Gantt, in the Greenville Daily
lt has been universally conceded
that tho sweetest words In the Eng
lish tongue are "'Home," "Love,"
"Mother," and the unanimous ver
dict of the music-loving world is that
tho sweetest and most heart-appeal
ing song ever composed ls "Home,
Sweet Homo." The music and words
of this old song chime anl blend so
harmoniously and the song is so
pathetically true that it appeals to
and penetrates tho nobler and higher
instincts in every human heart.
While other songs, some written
by world-famous poets, have been
cast aside for newer creations,
.'Home, Sweet Home," is to-day as
popular a melody as when first given
by Its author to an enraptured world.
Nothing has ever been, or ever will
be, produced to take its place. It is
the Alpha and Omega of melodies on
that ono subject, and will endure so
long as the human race has a habi
tation and a place of abode.
"Home, Sweet Home," has been
translated into every tongue, and has
even invaded the desert and the
darkest wilderness. Travelers have
heard it sung by Arabs in the Sa
hara Desert-those migratory peo
ple. wlio.se homes and horse-hair
tents are shifted from oasis lo oasis
as their needs demand. And yet
those descendants of Ishmael love
even their tents as a home. Stanley,
in one of lils letters to the New York
Herald, wrote that he heard in dark
est Africa a band Of naked savages,
in their gut toral voices, chanting the
strains of "Home. Sweet 'Home," that
was Introduced by a burden-bearer
of their tribe for a party of home
sick American explorer?. These black
savages live in huts constructed of
brush or grass, and yet these hovels
were to them a home. The Esqui
maux, it was said, has long intro
duced this song in his winter Ica
burrow, for that foul cave ls to him
a "'Home, Sweet Home." It would
appear that the Turk, with his ha
rem, would be one race that would
have a surfeit of home, but this
American song Is one of the most
popular airs in Turkey.
Josh Killings wrote that the most
arrant coward would fight to protect
his home, but he never heard of a
follow shouldering a musket In de
fense of a boarding house. This wit
ticism carries with lt a mine of wis
dom and truth. To abide in a pal
lace belonging to another, and from
which you can be ejected at the
whim of the owner, is not like hav
ing a home of your own. It matters
not how numble that habitation may
be, "there is no place like home."
Prom tho smallest insect to the wild
beast. Instinct teaches lt to first con
struct a home to which lt can retire
lo rest and safety. It ls the one
small part on earth over which the
occupant has sole ownership.- The
ant burrows a home In the earth and
the tiger, lion and all other wild
beasts have tholr lair or cave. But
that den is homo.
The first written laws ever framed
were by English barons, beneath the
wide-spreading shade of a giant oak;
and tho first declaration was made
that a man's home was his castlo,
and that it was ever sacred from in
vasion except by consent of the own
er. And with the first settlement in
America this declaration was import
ed with the colonists, and no law ls
more firmly Implanted In the minds
of our people to-day. A plutocrat,
with gilded chambers in a palace
hotel, is an object of commiseration
when compared with an humble man

John 'Howard Paine, whose brain
and gifted and almost Inspired pen
gave "Home, Sweet Home," to the
world, never had a home, and his
song was a dirge for that which ho
himself lacked and so ardently long
ed for. That song was a piteous wail
of a home-hungering heart-a wish
that was destined never to 'be real
ized, for he died In Tunis, In Al
giers, in an alien land and among
strangers, utterly penniless. He had
only his pitiful and uncertain salary
as American consul to subsist upon.
Years after his romains were brought
home and a handsome monument
erected to perpetuate his memory.

poverty and want, John Howard

gave him a stone." But this home

Paine when he visited his young ml

tigiitlng turn of mind, and never for
getting what M havo once heard, I
had a rare opportunity of learning
and preserving In memory unpub

At that time Miss Mary Harden
was a very old malden lady, almost
decrepid, who lived almost the Hie
of a recluse. She had outlived all of
her kindred and friends, was looked
upon somewhat as a miser, and she
seemed rather to avoid mingling
with the outside world. Among her
few associates was a charitable
young lady named Miss Ellie Jack
son, and to whom Miss Harden be
queathed her entire property, bat
on her death-bed exacted from 'Miss
Jackson a promise that she would
bury with her a trunk full of old
love letters* written her by John
Howard Paine, together with that
priceless relic, the original manu
script of "Home. Sweet Home," with
erasures and changes of words by
the tut thor, which he gave to the
lady of his love.
.When the remains of John 'How
ard Paine were brought back from
Algiers and the whole country was
preparing to do honor to his mem
ory, the publishers of Krank Leslie's
Magazine wrote me, offering %~>00
for the original. Hut when I called
on Miss Mary Harden and handed
her tho Leslie letter, she became in
dignant and declared that all the
gold in the whole world would not
buy it. and would not even consent
to have a copy made. She told me
thal the manuscript was the most
hallowed and treasured possession
she owned, and that when she died
it would be placed next to her heart
and buried in tho casket with her,
and which was done.
Miss Harden, while possessing a
nice property, always wore an old.
faded black dress, which she never
changed, winter or summer, and she
was said to be very slovenly and un
cleanly in her habits. I cannot con
ceive a moro dreary and desolate ex
