THE LEGEND OF THE LAMP.
A Tale of the Lakes of Killarney.
'I catiuot speak with certainty as
to the exact period of time to which
the story I ara about to relate apper
tains, but it was in those days loug
goue by, when this fair laud was
divided among many rulers, and
during a time when a dreadful pes
tilence made the stoutest heart quail
with fear. Late ou a wiuter's even
ing a young chieftain, accompanied
by several armed followers, stopped
before the habitation of an aged
man, who had sought and found
protection for himself and child
upon the hospitable shore of Innis
fallen. The island was then held
by an O'Douoghue, Prince of Locha
Tein, a chieftain who was like sev
eral others exempt from the pay
ment of tribute to the great Macar
thy. The leader of the daring baud
that had ventured to invade the
island of Iuuisfallen was Scanlan ot
tho Glen, and the fugitive before
whose habitation they stood was
ona of the once powerful race of the
O'Sullivans. The story goes that
the old man had failed to aid The
'Macarthy' in a recent quarrel with
a neighboring chief, consequently
had broken the tenure by which he
held his domains, aud, fearing the
vengeance of the mighty monarch,
had fied, with all his wealth, to the
O'Douoghue for protection.
'The armed party were clamorous
in their deinauds for admission, and,
as the door of the old man's dwell
ing was not immediately opened,
they were preparing to force it,
when the bars were removed and
Scanlad and hia parly were admit
ted. Upon their entrance, there
rushed from an adjoining apartment
a young and lovely maiden, who
flung herself into Scanlan's arms,
exclaiming iu joyful accents :
'Is it you, my dear Desmond?
Ah! I have so long expected you
aud watched your coming from the
western shore, long after sundown.'
'The words had scarcely escaped
her lips when sho started back in
terror, for the bright steel of the
chieftain's sword caught her eye and
sent a chill through her young
heart. She looked at the stranger,
and. sinking upon a seat, exclaimed :
'Great heaven, it is not Desmond !
"We are betrayed.'
True, fair maiden, I am not young
Desmond, the handsome hunter of
the hills, neither do I bring rich
presents to my affianced bride, the
beauteous Saova. I am Scanlan of
the Glen, and am here to execute the
orders of my feudal sovereign, the
great Macarthy Mor.'
'To thy chamber, daughter!' ex
claimed O'Sullivan, who had been
unobserved by tho party; 'I am
sufficient, I should think, to do the
honors of the house to this base
minion of a baser tyrant
'Reproaches are but as words
given idly to the wind,' replied the
young chieftain ; 'for from thi mo
ment neither you nor any that claim
your kindred can call house or laud
your own. I bear a commission to
seize your persons, and your goods
'You must be madr young man,'
vociferated O'Sullivan, raising his
lamp to the face of the denouncer.
'Know you not that we are under
the protection of the Prince O'Dono
ghue, who has already punished
more than one proud chief who has
dared to molest those to whom he
grants protection? Home, boy, nor
dare to put this foolish trick upon
me, or I may punish you as you
'"Well, sir traitor, we must e'n put'
your threate to the proof; so do
your duty, comrades; seize that old
dotard ; he is your prisoner, and his
wealth the booty due to our liege
lord as indemnification for his .re
fusal to aid his cause against the
'The followers of Scanlan obeyed,
and bound the old man hand and
foot, who fancied the whole affair
must be a dream, for the proceed
ings had been conducted with go
much secrecy and quiet that the
reality fell like a thunderbolt upon
'Saova, who had crept to her fath
er's Bide during the loud war of
words, appeared rooted to the spot,
and bent an eye of vacancy upon the
mailed figure of the chieftain Scan
lan, while her father from time to
time uttered cries of agony and des
pair, exclaiming, 'Just heaven ! what
will become of as?'
A question soon answered,- re
plied the Chief of the Glen; 'you,
old man, as the head of your race,
are doomed to die the death of all
traitors, and your child, with all her
8 ex bearing your name, or claiming
kindred with you, are to be driven
from the land.'
Great God! drivdn from their
hearth and home !' exclaimed the old
man, wringing his corded hands.
'Yes, even from this moment.'
'Saoya, on hearing this terrible
decree, started from the state of
apathy into which she bad fallen,
suddenly seized Seanlan's mailed
arm with a convulsive grasp, and
tixiug her inquiring eyes upon his
face she thus addressed him :
Young warrior, .you surely can
not have the heart to enforce this
terrible decree; you will not drive
the old man forth to meet the ven
geance of an augry tyrant?'
'The fair pleader never looked
more beautiful than at this moment;
her bosom heaving with contending
emotions while from her full stag
like eyes shot daring aud determi
nation. Scanlan, whose heart was
not totally devoid of feeling, appear
ed to gaze with interest as he looked
upon the lovely advocate, aud was
about to reply, when the harsh voice
of one ot his followers reminded
him that he had yet other duties to
perform, and that the orders of the
Macarthy mint not be delayed by
those intrusted with their execution.
'Right,' said the young chief;
'come, fair maiden, prepare yourself
for instaut departure; we will con
duct you safely through the moun
tain pastes, and once beyoud the
district of Eoganacht you will be
free from further molestation.'
'He commanded his followers to
execute their business with dispatch.
Iu vain did the almost frantic Saova
implore him to be merciful, and take
her life rather than separate her from
her aged father. He was deaf to all
her entreaties, and, having rudely
repulsed her, sho sank senseless to
the ground. After plundering the
abode of all the wealth it contained,
Scanlan and his followers forced the
old man from his home. The tumult
aroused Saova, and she stood, an
altered being before the marauders.
Father, farewell !' she said. 'The
daughter of an Irish chieftain must
preserve her life for a great and
'Scanlan was al a I039 to compre
hend her words, and the sudden
change which had taken place in her
manner; but her father's eyes bright
eued as he read the characters of
defiauce and revenge in his daugh
ter's face. They were, however,
from that hour separated forever.
'Two months from that day the
Chief of the Glen was seatpd at the
feet of Elliue, daughter of the Ma
carthy Mor; she was listening with
delight aud attention to the recital of
his adventures in her father's ser
vice, while his mother, the proud
Gromlaith, sat watching them with
smiles of contentment. They form
ed a charming group; the fair, deli
cate girl, clothed in a robe of purest
white, her slender waist encircled
by a golden zone, was seated upon
an ebony chair of curious workman
ship; the haudsorae youth, who ap
peared almost ou his knees before
her, as if in deep devotion before
some saint. Elline smiling and hap
py in his love, listened as he spoke.
Scanlau thought only of the bliss
that awaited him, and his happiness
in contemplating the fair features of
the maiden he should call his own
on the morrow. At their eidc, and
looking as their guardian angel, sat
Gromlaith, exulting in her success
of having effected a union which
would heal the breach which had
for some time existed between her
noble race and that of tho Macarthy
Mor. Day was fast drawing to a
close, the evening perfume of thu
sweet spring flowers embalmed the
air, and all nature seemed hushed
into a holy calm. The little party
felt its influence, and silence for a
while crept among them, as if they
were afraid to break the repo?e of
nature. The Chief of the Glen rest
ed his head near the lap of his
Elline, and at that moment they
forgot all but themselves, even the
dreadful pestilence which for some
time past had, like a scythe, cut' off
so many of the chieftains and their
followers, sparing iu its dreadful
march neither young nor old. At
this hour of fancied security the
large Gothic door of the apartment
was cautiously opened, and a female
figure, closely veiled, stood before
the happy group. The j outh started
to his feet, displeased at being inter
rupted in the sweet, but serious,
train of thought to which he had
yielded, and somewhat rudely de
manded the purport of her visit.
'Scanlan, Chicl of the Glen,' she
replied, with solemnity, 'is not that
fair maiden Elliue, the daughter of
the great Macarthy Mor, and your
'At the sound of the woman's
voice Elline started up from her seat
and bent an inquiring look upon her
lover. She fancied she foresaw that
a disagreeable scene wa about to
be enacted by some trembling and
forsaken girl, and, tearing for her
own happiness, she burst into tears.
Scanlan briefly replied : 'She is
my affianced bride, the daughter of
'It is well,' said the incognito, in a
tone of exultation, and turning to
the door by which she had entered
caretully closed it. Then placing
herself before Elliue she scrutinized
her for some time through her voil ;
theu, as if thinking aloud, she mur
mured pausing between each word :
'Yes, yes ; she is, indeed, handsome,
even more beautiful than I had
hoped to find her.'
'And what is that to thee?' de
manded Scanlan, impatiently.
'What to Hie?' exultingly replied
the unknown ; 'why this, Scaulau ol
the Glen ! I came to warn you of a
danger that threatens you and your
young bride; of a dreadful project
to dash tho cup of bliss forever from
your lips ; it has beeu well conceived,
aud will be executed by one who id
your deadly enemy.'
'I have no enemy who can injure
me, or whom I fear,' proudly an
swered the youth ; 'defended by my
castle's walls and my good sword, I
would bid defiance to any chieftain.
'Your enemy,' replied the un
known, 'is but a poor defenselest
woman ; one who, iu spite of ram
parts aud sword, holds iu her hand
vengettuce as inevitable ami certain
as the punishment of offended
'A horrible thought took posses
sion of Scanlan's mind ; it ippeared
to him quite unreasonable to fear a
woman alone, unarmed, but he
doubted not she was a maniac; a sad
presentiment agitated him, and with
a trembling voice he said, 'Who are
you ? What are you ?'
'I am Saova, the chieftain's daugh
ter, she replied, with solemn pathos,
'aud what I seek is vengeance lor a
'Enough, enough!' said Scanlan;
instantly leave this place or my fol
lowers shall thrust thee hence!'
'They dare not!' she replied, in
dignantly. 'Then I will!' he exclaimed, and.
advancing toward her, seized her 1
the arm to drag her forth, but she
clung to him with convulsive rage.
The struggle was severe, and he had
nearly succeeded in his purpose
when she demanded to be allowed to
leave the castle without force. '1
crave no boon ; let me but once more
gaze upon the features of your in
tended bride; 'tis all I ask for the
deep misery you have caused both
me and mine.'
'She advanced with him towards
Elline, who had sought refuge in
Lady Gromlaith's arms, for she had
an unaccountable feeling of dread
which she could not conquer. Scan
lan himself, while he held her firm
ly by the arm, obeyed her with
reluctance. It was a moment ol
awful silence as Saova stood before
the trembling Elline. Slowly she
saised the veil which had concealed
her features. Then, presenting the
youth to his lovely bride, she scream
ed aloud :
'Elline Macarty, I here present to
you Scanlan, the Chief of the Glen.'
The youth instantly dropped the arm
be had grasped, Elline fell upon her
knees and Lady Gromlaith stood
motionless with horror. A loud,
fiendish laugh burst from Saova as
she exclaimed triumphantly, 'Now
Chief of the Glen, where are your
boasted ramparts? Where is your
good sword to defend you from the
v.engeance of a poor, weak w0111.au ?
Why stand you all aghast? Why
gaze on me as it in fear? 'Tis true,
I am pestiferous! and have inoculat
ed with the poison of death all those
upon whom I have breathed. Look
on your urnle; see how ueautitul
she is! I was once as fair. Now
what am I ? and who made me what
Fiend-like, she Bprang upon the
object of her hate, clung to him like
a serpent, and covered his face aud
lips with deadly kisses. During
this horrible struggle neither hi
mother nor Elline dared approach
to assist him ; they saw him writh
ing beneath the poisonous embraces
of the wretched woman, and could
only weep and call for help. At
length the vassals came but at the
sight of Saova they stood petrified
and immovable, not daring to ap
proach beyond the threshold. The
frightful contest was brought to a
close by Scanlan's plunging his
sword into Saova's boom. For
several days the young chieftain's
life was despaired of. During this
time the Lady Gromlaith made a
vow to bestow a silver lamp upon
the blessed Saint Finan Lobhra if
her son recovered from bis present
danger. She also made a gift to a
monastery to defray the expenses of
keeping the lamp constantly burning
before the altar, both by day and
night. The Chief of the Glen recov
ered, but the legend says he never
afterwards had the use of his right
arm, which was the cause of his
having the appellation of 'Scanlan
the Scathed,' and that Elline fell a
victim to the dreadful pestilence
which ravaged this fair islaud.'

In the matter of crop prospects
that section of Nebraska lying north
of the Platte presents a most flatter
ing outlook. Au abuudance of rain
has demonstrated thit the soil U
productive if the moisture is ade
quate. That moisture will be mora
and more abundant as the country
becomes settled thero is no doubt.
From Mr. James T. Allan, who haa
recently visited Dawsou, Buffalo aud
other counties to the west of us, wo
learn that everything wears a most
favorable aspect. Tho whoat, now
being garnered, is well tilled and
the averago promises to equal that
of any former year. The chinch
bugs have done no damage worthy
of note; while rust, of which 'there
is considerable complaint in some
other sections, has not put in au
appearance at all iu the section of
which we speak. The corn, pota
toes, tlnx aud other crops are coming
forward rapidly, and Western aud
Northern Nebraska will have an
immense product for exportation,
or, better, for the fattening of stock.
Mr. Allan has beeu engaged in
gathering aud making arrangements,
for specimens to exhibit at the com
ing state fair, aud the success which
has" at tended his efforts warrants the
belief thai we shall have the finest
show of state products ever seen
within our borders. Farmers havo
been visited aud urged to compete
for premiums, both here and at ex
hibitions iu other states where their
prodi.cts will be displayed, and they
arc taking hold of the matter with
a spirit which augurs well for the
state. The Union Pacific Railroad
company will have specimens of
Nebraska products at all the great
(tTi iu the east and south, and the
exhibit which our farmers can make
will redound greatlv to the interests
of this state in coming yeirs. North
ern and Westeru Nebr iska, if proper
ellbrts are made, will pclipso tho
exhibit of any former vear. and from
the interest awakened by Mr. Allan
ami the great company which he
represents, there is uo riik in say
ing that thi.s will be done. To show
what we can produce will prove the
best kind of an immigration docu
ment much better than printed
milter scattered broadcast with
nothing but words to 'iilntaiitiite
our claims. What the people wtut
to see is specimens of Nebraska
srrown products, backed with relia
ble pvideuee that thev are such.
These it is proposed this fall lo show
iu all parts of the country, to an
extent arid of a qntlity which will
be convincing proof of the produc
tiveness and capability of the soil
of Western ami Northern Nebras
