Sargent Editor Publisher FROMTOPRHONDAFARNHAMCOURTESYSKINNERAUCTIONS Italian for Beginners On the local level Maine Historical Society has just acquired a framed pair of two notes a supper invitation between Longefellow and his friend Louis Agassiz 1807-1873. For a re- cent take on Agassiz visit httpwww.nytimes.com20130203booksreviewlouis-agassiz- by-christoph-irmscher.html_r0 A few weeks ago during a casual search of the Boston-based Skin- ner Auctioneers site I bumped into a list of rare documents headed for the block. Many items were the usual ephemeratrans- actions clipped autographs but then I flicked to Lot 49 of Auction 2819T and recognized the words first made more personal by the authors scratches cross-outs and changes It was Longfellows haunting opening lines to his famous translation of Dantes Inferno More precisely it was the first 27 lines of Canto I of Longfellows handwritten manuscript draft with emendations. Stunned to eavesdrop on his choices as he searched for just the right word I felt close to Longfellows shoulder just as he entered the forest dark of the underworld. Then my next surprise. The pre-auction estimate was 800 to 1200. How could a single sheet of paper this desirable still exist outside of a museum Its still considered one of the better translations as I understand it says Nick Noyes librarian at Maine Historical Society. Longfellow went to Europe to polish up his language skills before he went to Bowdoin. Then he went back a couple of other times to prepare for teaching at Harvard. Longfellow enthusi- asts are aware he loved all things Italian and The Inferno is the first major European work ren- dered in Italian instead of Latin but this has to be The Bearded Ones supreme achievement as a Professor of Romance Languages. Suspense is everything. So who had the highest bid at auc- tion Hammer price was 10455 according to Skinner. The buyer was Harvard Universitys Hough- ton Library which prizes rare documents in its Longfellow col- lection. To a Longfellow fan and his stock is risingDonna Tartts novel title The Secret History is lifted from Longfellow this is the Holy Grail. We were excited to bid on it because its a page thats been missing from the manuscript weve had here for some time says Houghton Li- brarys Leslie Morris. It was apparently given away as a souvenir by one of Longfellows sons. It was very exciting for us to reunite it with the manuscript. The following link magnifies the text for a closer look auctions2819Tlots49 Midway upon the journey of our life I found myself within a forest dark Forthestraightforwardpathwayhadbeenlost.

What was once fertile farmland in the late 19th century is now 40 acres of ancient glacial sand exposed through over-farming and overgrazing. The new owner will have to shell out sub- stantially more than the 300 price tag entrepreneur Henry Goldrup paid in 1925 for the abandoned land which now includes a buttery garden barn mu- seum and campground. Narrated tram rides transport visitors into a desolate landscape out of David Leans Lawrence of Arabia but the surrounding pine treesand gift shopare a reminder that this is in fact Freeport. Becca Cario Canada may have curling but since the early 20th cen- tury Maine can boast a classic sport of the finest kind.

Becca Carifio It looks as if Ben True is headed for the World Track and Field Championships that open August 22 in Bei- jing. To qualify the Greely High graduate 29 came in second after Ryan Hill in the 5000-meter race at the USATF outdoor championships in Or- egon in June with a time of 135109. Dartmouth-grad True also a Nordic ski racer in college has won national competitions in races from 1500 to 5000 meters. He was the rst U.S. nisher twice in world cross-country events.

SPLIT INFINITUDE Maybe it wasnt quite a 1-in-50-million shot for a rare harle- quin lobster to be pulled up a few weeks ago in Scarborough as reported on the news cycles. Dr. Robert C. Bayer of the Lob- ster Institute at the University of Maine in Orono says. We see various color morph lobsters on a pretty regular basis.

Trade was the cornerstone of native and European relations from the beginning says Dekker. But trade tools rearms and alcohol in exchange for furs brought with it unimaginable horrors of disease and inter-tribal warfareThe divergent political views and factionalism of Maines native people is fascinating. They were not a monolithic cul- tural identity. This allowed me to connect with them as individuals.

For well over a year now many of us have seen the pink van of Eastern Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning driving around York and Cumberland counties and we may have asked whats it all about. To clear up this question I spent some time with Diane Gadbois at her home and asked her some very personal questions that I am sure were difcult to answer. You see George and Diane Gadbois are private people who give more than their share back to the community and the last thing they want is to be noticed for their generosity. They started Eastern Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning 40 years ago on a wish and a prayer and now have the largest family-run carpet cleaning and water damage restoration company in the area. Back to the pink van If you notice on the rear side panels are the words Susan G. Komen for the Cure. This national founda- tion has brought forth womens cancer awareness promoted ex- tensive cancer research and although not exclusive to the cause is nationally recognized by the color pink. The cost to place this name on the van will not be discussed here but let us say the yearly donation is signicant and the proceeds all go to the cure for womens cancer. Diane was introduced to breast cancer early in life when her mother had a radical mastectomy. She remembers her mothers doctor telling her sister and her one of you will have cancer. Not a pleasant thought at the time but it stuck with Diane and saved her life. Twice after the normal tests and screenings for cancer Diane received a clean bill of health and relatively soon after while doing a self-examination found a lump. Not once but twice Fortunately they were found in time and Diane is doing ne but she wants to get the message out that as important as it is to get regular screenings it is equally as important to be your own advocate and make double sure with a self-examination. So when you see the pink Eastern van go by remember its just Diane reminding you even if you have had the tests be your own advocate and make a regular self-examination part of your life because it could save it. It did for Diane 63 Pleasant Hill Road Scarborough P 885.1499 F 885.9410 For well over a year now many of us have seen the pink van yearly donation is signicant and the proceeds all go to the cure Clean Up Cancer J U LY A U G U S T 2 0 1 5 4 1 EXPERIENCE FROMTOPCOURTESYARCTICMUSEUMCOURTESYPHOTODELANEYSTEVENS Save It For A Rainy Day Own Under Milkwood Aug. 5-6 Merry Wives of Windsor Aug. 13-23. 367- 2788 Theater at Monmouth 796 Main St. Monmouth.

While hes pouring our 8 mini pitcher of Brooklyn Lager I notice something funny behind him. Its a ceramic figurine depict- ing a black poodle in a white sack with a heart-shaped dog tag. I assume its a bank. The poodle Scott laughs and brings it over so we can get a better look. Its full of Jim Beam. The owners of this place are three Greek guys. Their Uncle Fred brought this thing in one day and set it behind the bar. He said When I die I want you to drink this. The guys 96 years old. I examine the poodle. Its collar reads Tiffiny an appropriate name for an eight- inch tall poodle although pretty humorous for middle-shelf 1970s-era bourbon. Yeah Scott continues. A few years agoFred had to be at least 88 at the time I saw him roll a golf cart right over get back up and play the next hole. Look for Tiffiny next time youre there shes probably not go- ing anywhere. 940 Congress Street.

FOREST GARDENS CA. 1930 This is one definition of a hidden gem small but diverse with a good-humored bar staff. On a Friday night after a long day at the of- fice I rally my roommate Brent. Want to go to Forest Gardens I call from the kitchen. Good enough for me. Our apartment is in the Oakdale neigh- borhood and the convenience of Forest Gar- dens blows us both away. Here is a bar with 2 beer 100 yards from our front door. While the place is cash only there are exactly three banks with ATMs along the walk there. The pleasantly salty bartender Ray is kept busy running beers catching up with regu- lars and grilling burgers in the closet-sized kitchen off the bar. Its a nice little place he explains. Its cash only were only open until 11 and theres no hard liquor. Younger people who want to go all out dont come in here because they want to pay with plastic. They might stop in for a beer on the way into town but being cash-only puts kind of a limit on how crazy people can get. We have a few rounds and Brent asks whats in the kitchen. The barkeep produces a menu featuring hamburgers French fries onion rings chicken fingers and even a clam burgerall under 5. He offers to make us a mixed plate. Perfect. We spend less than 20 total on two rounds and a big plate of fried snacks. 372 Forest Avenue.

Upstairs is a dart and pool hall but my group is feeling adventurous so we make our way down into the basement fol- lowing the buzz of party bass lines. H ip-hop and Top 40 music blares from subwoofers at the far end of the room and the basement bar areaispackedend-to-endwithgroupsof20- and 30-somethings chatting doing shots trying to yell over the music and dancing. Getting to the bar is a challenge but I make it. The bartenders are doing their best to keep everyone happy but they are sur- rounded by very thirsty patrons. My pa- tience is eventually rewarded and I obtain a reasonably strong whisky-ginger at a price on par with other Old Port joints. After some dangerous and painful danc- ing it becomes apparent that flip-flops were a mistake my toes are stepped on a total of six times within an hour. We retreat from the crush to an out-of-the-way fish tank near the door. 11 Moulton Street. DIMILLOS ON THE WATER 1954 While the famous DiMillos floating restau- rant has only been on a boat since 1982 the DiMillo family has a long history in Port- land. It shows in customer service and at- mosphere because DiMillos on the Water is one of the friendliest places to grab a drink in the Old Port. On a rainy Sunday I make my way down the gangplank into the repurposed James- town Rhode Island ferry and grab a seat at the long bar. The dark polished wood has a film-noir glamor and seats a good 40 or so. I grab a stool next to Chris and Kelly a married couple visiting from Newport New Hampshire. Chris runs a heating oilme- chanical contracting business and Kellys just taken a job as a school principal. We chat about local beer and the bene- fits of weekend mini-vacations and about education the weather sports traveling the works. Even the bartender gets involved shes planning a trip to see her boyfriend stationed in Arizona with the Army. They are amazed to learn this restaurant even served its gorgeous lobster entrees staying open during The Perfect Storm. I sip on a Roulette 9 which is a bor- derline Manhattan combining Bulleit Rye Grand Marnier and Peychauds Bitters. Out- side the wind blows the rain pelts the plastic deck enclosure and we watch the Nova Star disappear into the fog. 25 Long Wharf.

He went for five years paying 50 rent heat included. On any given night you could find some- where to be with something to do and some- one to do it with and the guy who seemed always to have something going on was reb- el-man Jake Sawyer. Was Jake an artist too I ask innocent- ly. Paul and Denis crack up. He was an artist all right bursts Denis a con-artist. After serving in the Army and winding up incarcerated in multiple prisons includ- ing Folsom Jake joined the Hells Angels. When he returned to the east coast he was a regular in the Old Port. Sorry not a regular more like a legend. One night Jake told me to hold the front door open and thats after he spilt beer on the dance floor Denis tells us. I swung it wide he started his motorcycle and he drove it right insideyou know a big chop- per. He drove it past the bar onto the dance floor spun around on the wet floor drove up the stairs and out the back door. Why Why not Why not. I realize there will be no way to truly fathom how these guys lived. Were that to happen in the Old Port Tavern to- day most of the police would be downtown in a heartbeat an impressive force. But then BC before craft beers It was just another night and now its just another memory. s 30-somethings Paul and De- nis lived lives entirely alien to my 20-something existence. Their weeks were filled with what they loved most their art their friends their town. And while we all strive for something like it Im not sure a life like that could ever exist again. Not unless you have the money for it.

They too experienced the loss and the pain none of us is exempt from. As Denis tells me there were good times but there was a lot of dark stuff going on. he murder of Nikki Cleveland a lo- cal real estate agent and close friend and supporter of the artists casts a cloud over the otherwise happy conversa- tion. Cleveland disappeared after showing a cottage in Yarmouth in the summer of 1981 her body was discovered 17 days later. Joel Caulk who became known as the Want- Ad Rapist was charged with the murder convicted and he received a life sentence. Then there was Cowboy a loner who showed up one day and hung around for a while. A really great guy until the FBI showed up and arrested him for shooting a cop in the Midwest. Its from these headline-tales that the cultural intimacy of Portland at the time is revealed. Everything that happened you knew about it says Paul. So I ask about poet James Lewisohn and all at once every- one has something to share. Paul starts He would be considered a modern American poet. I was into that group and in the 60s they were all very dramatic guys. He was partying with us that night and got so drunk Denis interjects. Hes referring to the night in 1974 when Lew- isohn shot and killed his wife. He had an inferiority complex. He was short very short. And he owned a gun which is a bad combination.

GROWING UP As a haunt the Old Port that Paul and De- nis knew existed from 1970 to about 1983 though both of them were out by 79. Paul moved west for a few months before return- ing to his home in Limington and Denis bought a house. Denis said the end was coming when Greater Portland Landmarks asked if they could do tours in our studios Paul says. We were all anxious because we wanted to sell our stuff but at the same time Denis said When people start seeing what weve done with these places they are going to start seeing the value. He said This is the beginning of the end. And so it was. Paul remembers the day when rent for his studio above OPT went from 50 to 400 a month. Denis recalls having to rent a secret studio just to get work done because of all the visitor traffic. There were three stages of the Old Port Denis tells me. The early stage in the 1800s when it was the root of Portland for busi- ness. Then it was dead for awhile. Then the artists planted the seed and they occupied the Old Port for 10 years before it got gentri- fied. It was our piece of heaven because the rent was dirt cheap nobody bothered us and we were free-range. Having met with Paul and Denis before this years Old Port Festivalthey lay claim to participation in developing the original ideaI find myself caught up in reflection walking through the over-crowded streets trying to find just one of the stages.

MAINES FIRST KNIGHTS The first two Mainers to be knighted were subjects of the British Crown. Born to a Woolwich family of reportedly modest means William Phips 1651-1695 made his fortune as a treasure hunter locating and salvaging the riches from sunken Span- ish vessels. After turning over one-tenth of the booty to the crown Phips was knighted by King James II and appointed royal gover- nor of Massachusetts Colony. From then on things turned somewhat dicey for Sir Wil- liam. In 1692 he bowed to religious and po- litical pressure by creating a special court to hear the many accusations of witchcraft emanating from Salem Village. Phips placed his lieutenant governor William Stoughton in charge of the court. Stoughton was utterly devoid of legal training but more than qual- ified as a religious zealot and very few of the accused walked free from the trials. After a number of locals had been tortured and ex- ecuted Phips finally heeded the public out- cry and granted a handful of pardons but neither the community nor Phipss reputa- tion would ever be the same. William Pepperrell 1696-1759 of Kit- tery epitomized the self-made man achiev- ing great riches and prominence and be- coming the most famous American of the early 18th century. But it was for his service as a soldier that he was knighted. In 1745 during King Georges War Pepperell helped organize finance and lead a successful ex- pedition against the French fortifications at Louisbourg. It was a stunning achieve- ment and the king made him a baronet a member of an hereditary order. The phe- nomenally wealthy Pepperrell enjoyed the good life to the fullest and in the words of Nathaniel Hawthorne spent the remain- der of his days in all the pomp of a colonial grandee. According to prominent Maine historian Ernest Marriner Sir William who had once enjoyed being rowed across the Piscataqua in Governor Winthrops barge acquired a barge of his own rowed by liveried black slaves. He owned a tract of over 100 miles that stretched from the Saco to the Piscataqua rivers and his opu- lent mansion with its extensive formal gar- dens was maintained by a staff of a dozen slaves. Slavery had not yet been abolished in Massachusetts and ownership was an obvi- ous sign of wealth and status. In 1759 after attaining the highest level of military polit- ical and commercial success William Pep- perrellwrites Hawthornelaid down his aristocratic head among the humbler ashes of his fathers. THE KNIGHTS FROM SANGERVILLE Sangerville Maine boasts a population few- er than 1400. And yet the tiny town in Pis- cataquis County fostered two Knights of the Realm They could not have been more dif- ferent from one another. One contributed a fortune to the improvement of social condi- tions while the other developed an instru- ment of war. B orn in Sangerville Hiram Stevens Maxim 1840-1916 was a world- class inventor. He first demonstrat- ed his creative skills by inventing a bet- ter mousetrapliterally. By all reports his self-resetting snare was highly success- ful in eliminating rodents from a local grist mill. In his lifetime the prolific Hiram was awarded over 270 patents for inventions ranging from the pocket inhaler and the curling iron to smokeless gunpowder and aircraft artillery. He even dabbled albe- it unsuccessfully in the realm of sustained flight. His crowning achievement howev- er and the one for which he is remembered today was the invention of the self-powered machine gun. After a myopic U.S. War De- partment refused to purchase his invention Hiram set up a plant in Britain from which he successfully marketed his doomsday de- vice to virtually every other major army in the world. So impressed was Queen Victoria with Maxims gun that she had him knight- ed. Hiram Maxim lived until 1916two years after the outbreak of World War I and in time to see millions fall before the terrible efficiency of his invention. Harry Oakes 1874-1943 was born 34 years later and achieved notorietyand knighthoodby a totally different route. De- spite what was considered a fine education for its timea bachelors degree from Bow- doin College and graduate credits from Syr- acuse Medical SchoolHarry left home at 21 G eorge H. W. Bush isnt the only presidential knight. Three U.S. presidentsall Republi- canshave been knighted one be- fore he ever ran for ofce. In the fall of 1945 King George VI conferred the Order of Merit on a decidedly under- whelmed General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower. It was one of many honors heaped by grateful govern- ments on a no-nonsense professional soldier whose primary objective was the winning of World War II and who had little patience for the trappings of state. In a letter to General George Marshall Eisenhower bemoaned what he called a fearful drain on avail- able time. I do hope the whole busi- ness is doing a little good. Otherwise I am certainly inconveniencing myself to no purpose. In 1989 the British government be- stowed on President Ronald Reagan described by one reporter as Prime Minister Margaret Thatchers conser- vative soul matehis own GCB. Both Reagan and Bush were knighted after their terms of ofce had expired since Article I Section 9 of the U.S. Consti- tution prohibits members of the gov- ernment from accepting any pres- ent emolument ofce or title of any kind whatever from any king prince or foreign state without the approval of Congress.

Oakes became a naturalized Canadian citizen moved to Nassau Bahamas. with a newly acquired young bride and proceed- ed to donate large sums to social cultural and environmental improvements includ- ing a 400000 gift to St. Georges Hospital of London. So impressed was King George VI with Oakess largesse that he knight- ed him in 1939 bestowing upon him the ti- tle of baron. Unfortunately his good for- tune soon failed him. One rainy summer night in 1943 Sir Harry was brutally mur- dered in his Nassau home by party or par- ties unknown. According to oral tradition when still in college Harry had confided to a classmate that he would gain a fortune and die a violent death with his boots on. Oakess youthful prediction proved true on both counts. THE DISTAFF KNIGHTS Titles of nobility have not fallen exclusive- ly to the men. The title of Lady is the female equivalent of Knight and some women of Maine have been so graced. When for ex- ample William Pepperrella subject of the Crownwas made a Baron his wife auto- matically became Lady Pepperrell. Nor was she the only Maine woman to achieve nobil- ity. After Bettina Edith Brown 1915-1983 of Great Barrington married Australian politician John Gorton she became an Aus- tralian citizen and British subject as well as a down-easter. And when John was knighted in 1977 after having served as Prime Min- ister Bettina automatically became Lady Gorton.

Bush whose family has maintained a generations-long residence in Kennebunkport was award- ed the highest honorary rank bestowed by Britain on foreigners the Knight Grand Cross of the Most Honorable Order of the Bath or GCB. The ceremony was to say the least understated and was described by one chronicler as having no pomp at all and very little visible circumstance. Comments the former president It was conferred dur- ing a private visit to Buckingham Palace and given the friendship between our na- tions and my high esteem for Her Majesty I recall being very moved. Because I was not a British subject I do recall I did not have to kneel. Apparently only British subjects get to kneel before Her Highness Americans even presidentsreceive their knighthoods standing. Nor it seems are foreigners al- lowed to call themselves Sir. After receiv- ing his medal and crimson sash President Bush was treated to a private lunch at the palace at which according to the Associat- ed Press the table talk was top secret and the menu strictly confidential. When I returned home recollected the President I asked Barbara how it felt to be married to a real live knight. Her reply Make the coffee Sir George. A KNIGHTHOOD FROM FRANCE B ritain is not the only nation to have awarded knighthoods to deni- zens of the Pine Tree State.

He recalls the event with both rever- ence and humor. The French consul in Bos- ton called to say I was going to be knighted with Frances highest award. They asked me where I would like the ceremony to be held and I said in my garage I dont travel much anymore. Instead I had them mail it to me. T uttle at 19 flew 50 missions over France as tail gunner in a B-24 Lib- erator bomber. He was wounded on his second mission and shot down over en- emy territory on his fortieth. Bailing out over enemy territory he watched as his best friends chute fatally snagged in the plung- ing bombers tail section. Hidden by Ital- ian farmers Tuttle eventually made his way back to his own linesand another 10 dead- ly bombing missions. Plagued by memories to this day Tuttle was asked if he might be suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Dis- orderwhat the GIs of his era used to call combat fatigue. I cant think of any other reason for me to still feel the way I do. I still have night- mares and Im jumpy as a son-of-a-gun. You tell your readers that. I want people to know what these boys went through. It wasnt some field trip. These days I read about our boys getting killed in wars that make no sense and it just makes me sick. The French government mailed Tuttle a handsome medal which he displays with the many others he won in the war. The certificate that accompanied the citation reads France will never forget the sacri- fices made by the American soldiers for the cause of freedom. THE PEACEMAKER In 1998 Senator George Mitchell of Water- ville was invested as an Honorary Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the British Em- pire GBE for his splendid efforts in nego- tiating the Good Friday Agreement which brought about a cessation of hostilities in Northern Ireland. Senator Mitchell a mod- est man who built an unsurpassed reputa- tion for international diplomacy recalls I was completely surprised to be invit- ed to Buckingham Palace to meet with the Queen. I was accompanied by my wife her mother and my sister. I had been chairman of a three-man team in Northern Ireland and the other two were with me as well to receive similar honors. It was a nice ceremony Mitchell remem- NN S THE CROONERSA FO DA A D J U LY A U G U S T 2 0 1 5 1 0 7 bers. We were met by uniformed British offi- cials as we entered the Palace and taken to a separate room and briefed about the upcom- ing event. As you would expect Buckingham Palace is a very nice place The Queen entered a brief statement of citation was read and she placed medals on the three of us. An informal reception followed. Mitchellwasinformedthatasaforeigner he would not be referred to as Sir George. As it was explained to me if I chose to give up my American citizenship and become a British subject I could use the term Sir. I declined the offer Actually he reminisced I already knew the Queen. In 1992 when she came to address a joint session of Congress as Senate Majority Leader I hosted a luncheon in the Capitol. I sat with her at lunch and we had a long conversation. So when I got to Buckingham Palace we enjoyed quite a nice talk. Not surprisingly after a lifetime of doing such things shes good at person- al conversation. It was my sisters birthday and the Queen was very nice about acknowledging that. To this day my sisterwho has stopped recognizing her birthdays due to advancing agerefers to that last one which she cele- brated with the Queen of England O n a more somber note Mitchell re- members It was a nice gesture by the British government but it turned politically awkward. By sheer co- incidence on the very day indeed at the very time we were in Buckingham Palace receiving these awards the Northern Ire- land Assembly which had been formed as a result of the peace agreement collapsed. We were scheduled for a celebratory din- ner but I couldnt go because I received calls from the Prime Ministers of Ireland and the United Kingdom asking me to re- turn to Northern Ireland to try to put the process back on track. I spent the whole day and evening on the phone with Brit- ish and Northern Irish officials. I ended up returning to Northern Ireland for sever- al more months and eventually succeed- ed in putting it back together. It was a very difficult period with horrific incidents of violence. In the end the agreement was worked out and continues today. The year following Senator Mitchells in- vestiture by the Queen President Clinton awarded him the Presidential Medal of Free- dom Americas highest civilian honor.

Baxter and his crew were so raucous that they were arrested. Although the Baxters confederates pled guilty the future Governor fought the charges with the help of his father Portland Mayor James Phinney Baxter and managed to have his record expunged. By 1901 he had a law degree from Harvard and was a promising young attorney in Portland on the way up. If he had this getaway cot- tage built it may have been dur- ing these upwardly mobile years.

He would materialize unexpectedly out of nothing a loping Civ- il War refugee with his bedraggled troops strung in a line behind him. Circumstanc- es kept them always on the move. The Dog Man would never show if you went looking for him he was capricious that way and kept his schedule to himself. Such an ugly mot- ley bunch they were man and dogs One large gold dog near the end of the string had a frozen hind leg held always at half-mast while soldiering on three legs doing extra duty. The Dog Man did the baying when necessary and the dogs followed in silence dematerializing as they went absorbed by the shadows. Those days there wasnt much to the wa- terfront except decay but the decay was gen- erous. There were no sharp edges of prosper- ity hard between land and water. Splintered wood merged with the tides and mud or blended with crumbling asphalt and chunks of waste granite lavish spreads of broken bricks glass. Sometimes the sunlight would hit just right and the ground at your feet would sparkle flashing silver. Such beauty was a rare thing. The decay had a rich vari- ety to it a texture of homemade bread that was a feast for the eye. All the many stinks of the town and waterfront were there for the cataloguing and analyzing. The unattended waterfront enabled The Dog Man to live in lonely splendor in a re- claimed metal shack right at the waters edge with rotting pilings as his view. The Dog Man shifted moved on a whim to dif- ferent quarters but he always seemed to keep a roof over their heads. How did they manage the winters There must have been magic or perhaps there was compassion. Strange kind of benevolence a blind eye. The Dog Man had his roundsellips- es really is what they were. His unrecord- ed journeys rivaled those of Odysseus. He would cross streets with that undulating at- tenuating string of woeful canines fanning out behind like geese in flight the last an- imal just making it to the curb in time as the oncoming car with drivers patience stretched to the limit accelerated away. Leg- ends can begin this way. His persona was a fierce one. He was as grubby as his charges. Intimidating he loomed as alpha to the pack of followers that had been homeless before he gathered all of them to him. Down the Bob Solotaire streets lined with squat mean buildings that gave no hint of what they would be- come The Dog Man and his pack would walk and walk with purpose and his sharp commands echoed off the bricks. Man and dogs compelled the eye to look to see and to be repelled forcing most to scurry to a saf- er route or watch the wall while the Gentle- Magnum Opus Salon and Spa Become our Greatest Work You are a Masterpiece Offering a Full Service Salon By a Professional Staff A Full Body Experience - in the Beautiful Sebago Lakes-Region Catering to Bridal Parties in Salon On-Site of Wedding Hand Massages and Hot Steam Aroma Towel with every service.

On they would go by the Hol- low Reed where they never stopped and then back toward the Hill past the dark lair of Amatos with its shadows back toward the wharves and the water. Something like home must have waited there. T he wanderings ceased. A stillness hovered over the waterfront like sea smoke.Onedaydogsandmanwere no longer there and their leaving had taken some of the citys breath. Perhaps the dogs had caught an exotic scent coming on the breeze and asked to go. The Dog Man went on sabbatical once before melting south to Biddeford another brick-made town that seemed to promise shelter for roughened street refugees. But there were no warrens of safety found and The Dog Man brought his troops back north. It was when all his dogs were taken and an itinerant sign painter was all that re- mained that The Dog Man turned his back and walked into the silence.
