WEDNESDAY, JAN. 15. 1902.
In sending this letter to The Intelli
goueer we would, if possible, have if
draped in black for the loss of our old
iove?the dam at Porttuan.
The editor must know how much we
loved it, having seen it grow foot by
foot, from foundation to finish, having
heard the men sing, the happy clanguor
of machinery that, like a good horse,
is happiest when mont active. Having
been there through the brightness of
the sunlight and the shadow of the
cloud, seen the rains descend upon it
and many a Hood come?till the last!?
heard ninny encomiums, saying, "It is
fine, it is good, and it will last." We
looked upon it from both sides and
walked upon its linn surface above?
measured it with mind and eye and
love?as one does with the object of
one's affections, and, as it is with that
one, prophesied great things for it!
Hut alas! and alas! how uncertain are
the surest things of life.
When the writer was a little, girl?
away over across tho briny waters?iu
the land where the "good old days" are
never forgotten, and where customs as
ancient as ancient Home are still as sa
cred, she attended tho funeral, or
"wake," of her maternal grandmother.
We may have degenerated since then
in this commercial age, where the van
dal hands of greed and gold know no
veneration, but wo had some good old
ancestors, so good, so untainted by
parvenus that tho "banshee" cried as a
warning of this grandmother's death?
which never happens except in the case
of such ancient, nndellled lineage.
Preparations were being made; for,
when the banshee cried?an old woman
from no one knows where, but some
where from between earth and sky, be
tween hades and tho grave?no one
know from where. She came to tho
window combing her long white hair,
crying and crooning during tho dark
hours of the night, bewailing the loss
upon earth of one more of those relics
of the fading past. When this cry was
heard the end was known to bo near,
and tho finest band of mourners in all
that section of the country engaged to
The writer, as a child, sat there and
listened to the mourners. They mourn
ed and moaned, they cried and wept
till their faces were swollen?wo can't
just remember whether there were any
ears or not?but ns they bent and
h waved over tho body they called aloud
in tho greatest agony of grief begin
i -ng with a "On, ho, ho-o-o, O-o-o
Mi-o-n* but you were tho best of wo
men! You gave to tho poor and visit
ed the sick. You were known through
out the country for jour love and
chnrity-o-o. Your fathers and fore
fathers were great and good . ( )h-o-o-u,
u-u!" .So it continued till n child's
mind nnd fears would bristle like a
porcupine. A stray mourner who heard
tho familiar wail and whoso business
it was to let no such happy and remark
able event escape her, burst through
the sympathizing throng of country
neighbors, and shouldered in between
the weeping cordon of mothers in Is
rael, Hung herself prostrate on the
corpse, threw bnck a little shoulder
shawl that her elbows might have full
room and outdid herself nnd all tho
others iu a prolonged and inconsolable
ferment of weeping. When she blew
her nose violently, and snuffed and
sniffed, nnd dnrcd to lift her fevered
eyes to the light sho asked in n hollow
tone, ' Who is doad?'*
This is a far away memory: but it
now recalls thti utility of such a weep
ing band that wo should like to see go
?lown and weep over the fall of Baby
lon, which we should impersonate iu
that dam at Portnian.
Wo loved it, and wo pity all else who
had interest or affection in it. Wo dnro
not think of the commercial or money
part of it, as that, iu its extreme nnd
distressing significance, is beyond our
comprehension. Wo do not seo the
distress of broken vows and broken
honor in business men who promised
work and welfare to many, who prom
ised the relief of obligations und pay
ment of debts, who started the current
of activity in business circles, only to
see it checked. We do not seo tbe
hundreds of people, hungry perhaps for
a full meal's victuals, fearful lest their
small stock Bhould not last till work,
and nn income resumed. We do not
see all this, and the fears an*1 hopes
that try men's and women's so- Is, :.nd
we dare not write it since we uo ..Dt
We know what wo think, wo know
what we hope, that the magnificence of
an Omnipotent hand who, at one in
stantaneous stroke, swept away the
living?the bread from the children's
rnoutbtj?will, in a reincarnated stroke,
feed again the live thousand. That as
It was. it shall be?comfort and fire
and light. That the men iu business
who command the plans, the money of
enterprise shall bo enlightened in new
wisdom, how to proceed, how to rise
above their difficulties and begin anew.
Courage in one man in a circle will
light with hope tbe whole circle.
Trusting that all will be well with
our neighbors and assuring them of our
sympathy, we remain faithful to their
.cuubk and interests, fi. it. L.
