glance the folds of the banner to die
for which was coveted honor. Nover
let that flag lose Ito message ot love,
nor the mute messages which the dy

people and let the people collect, pre

of their deathless valor, their Im
perishable devotion to their country.
MIK S WE KT PATHOS OF HKIMONS
The pathos of sj reunion of our old
soldiers is nowhere so keenly felt as
when they join in the parade, and at
tempt once more to step with the vigor
and spring of their young manhood.
One can see the fire tn the eye of tho
old fellow when he straightens up. as
suming a military carriage and with
enthusiasm cries "Hep! 'Hep! Hep!"
as he waa wont to do In the '60's. But,
try as he may to keep erect, the stoop
will return, and the footstep become
lagging. Ia aplte of the stimulus at
the music he wearies quickly., ead la
forred to admit, "Well. I am growing
old, and I can't do the things now I
used to do."
Then there are those empty sleeves
or wooden leg mntely telling of suffer
ings on the battlefield. What a loss
this has beep for the fifty years since
they were wounded! Hew mach of
life went out when the cannon hall
tore away that limb can never he
known except by actual experience,
and ?ad arc thc nought* when the re
flection is forced home that a half
century has passed and every year j
and day of it is filled with regret and j
Brief over the fact-that the afflicted

But while these reunions have their ?
sadness, they are also filled with!
gladuess. liow much the load ls j
lightened when '.hese honored soldiers j
of a Lost Cause return to their homes,
and think of the comrades seen again !
and the joys felt over the evident de
sire of everyone to do 'something for
their comfort. Years lived over in a
'ew days and the storehouses of their
memories refilled with tender exper
iences, uud pictures to be looked at
and pondered over axain and again.
When looking at the joys of these
reunions, one is made to reflect
over the absence fifty years hence of
a suitable reunion or occasion for the
young men of today. What are they
doing now to unite them in a national
cause making necessary a State or
National reunion when they are old?
Life will be barren on. this point for
nearly all of the young men, unless
they can meet as Sons of Veterans and
recount the sceneB of this reunion and
the next and the next. The thin gray
line will become extinct and in its
place some other muBt appear. To
fill the vacancy The Intelligencer
hopes the organization of the Sons of
Veterans may grow, and let them fight
the battles of their fathers for an "age
of ease," or let them help some other's
father if his has answered the last roll
Yes, I hese reuIliuUB un- p?iu?wv,
but lt is a sweet pathos, making pure
the fountain of patriotic emotion.
May there be many more.
This night in May upon old Charles
ton's wall, alone, I muse
And recollection eweeps the vistas
of the past.
I live again the happy, happy hours
that cannot lotte.
Though long, long years have come
and gone, their charm-the
witching spell they softly cast.
Familiar faces, dear, smile once again.
For come has come to the end,
And earth no longer holds them; -
and all-how changed!
One there was who with that fair
moonlit scene in complete har
mony seemed to blend
As if for her sweet radiant presence
that setting of the sea and sky
and shore some spirit had ar
In the still moonlight, o'er the nar
rowing bay we gently glide
Methinks I hear the very voices
softly all the old songs singing
And hear tho wavelets 'gainst the sea
wail lapping with the rising tide
And timell the drowsy perfume from
the gai dem-..blown o'er the tiny
waves to which they're clinging.
And then comes through the misty air
faint and afar
1 Like fairy fantasies the tinkling
topes, now clear, now hushed
As some deft hand sweeps o'er the
strings-the sound of a guitar;
And so one listens thrilled with
tense delight almost, akin to
As then so now the moon is softly
And as I lean upon the railing of
the Battery wall'
And muse upon the beauty and thc
story of this proud old town
I wonder not that once a heart has
spell lt never can but answer
to her call.
