right. Mr. Editor, I wish you would
let' me print in this connection the
following beautiful tribute to a spirit
of those good old days that is also
unfortunately fast passing away-the
"Old Black MamlY."
The Old Black Mammy.
In the first dim day of life's long
4he cradled the infant frame,
And wistfully watched with many
The fluttering breath as it came.
'Twas mammy who guided the 'tod
And caught with its native sound
The name that prattled in accents
Is heard the wide world round.
To mammy we ran with childish
And mammy taught usto sew,
As we stitched the hem in her gray
With fingers clumsy and slow.
To mammy when clothes we rumpled
For mother we dared not see
And mammy lessened the grievous
Of pain on her generous knee.
We listened when mammy gave coun
As the pulse of our hearts beat
"Honey, dar's many would pass fur
Is wo'fs in de sheep skin at last."
When we gave to another a closer
And we left the old home roof,
Ah, mammy prayed that the angels
Would tighten the golden woof.
No tenderer care could ever be
To nurture fair childhood's hours
Than doubled the love around us
Like the sun and the rain on flow
Nor mattered to us that the spirit's
Of mammy was satiny jet,
.Her love was pure' as alchemic gold
-An4 remains ith her "chil'un" yet.
O , faithful heart! It is passing
The name of tyse "chil'un" sc
tmemory clings to the earlier day,
And will cherish your virtues here;
d when life's current flows swift
Our barque to death's river, anon
Among the .whole hosts of -the ran
Our mammy shall beckon us on.
Somebody told me that the pas
tors of the city had partly rescinded
their former action as to no services
on Sunday night and that there
would be service in one church each
Sunday night. Somebody ought to
have the kickers arrested and make
them attend these services.

* Wreckage in Cartago-Thous
- ands Are Homeless.
San Jose, C. R., May 8.-Up to
noon today 800 bodies had been taken
from the ruins of the houses which
were overturned in the earthquake
last Wednesday evening at Cartago.
- The estimate of the dead place the
mimber at 1,100, but it is possible
thds will be exceeded.
-Large forces which have gone to
>Cas.tago from San . Jose and other
~points are now engaged in the work
o seueand even today several liv
ing lersons were taen from under
the ales of stones and timbers where
dwellings once stood.
The' number of sick and injured
can not be counted, many of them
having been removed to. , dining
towns and villages.
Dr. Bocanegra, the Guatemalan
representative to the Central Ameri
can court of justice, was demented
when removed from the ruins the
day following the earthquake, but he
is now recovering from the shock.
Physically, he was only slightly in
jured. The body of his wife, whoe
was killed, has been embalmed, pre
paratory to being sent to Guatemala.
Slightly Out of Place.
