PART III - THE PAST
CHAPTER II - MACOLNIA SHOPS

Dindia Macolnia and her daughter, if Etruscan antiquities reflect truly, agreed with the little Pan. They did not understand water, and it is not likely that they understood Friendship either, which is the second motive that their toilet case reveals to us to-day. It declares that when the body is feeble the soul is feeble : cherish the body and you will cherish the soul. That was the belief of the Greeks ; the belief in wearing away the body by penance, in order that the quii mg soul may be exposed, had not yet entered into the word.
As the heroes are refreshed, their faculties awake in their fullness, and strong and vivid is the love they bear and have borne for each other. That love has never died, but it has shared the eclipse and weakness of the body. Two-the most beautiful figures of the whole composition-are standing together, leaning on their spears, with the knowledge that they have passed through one more labour in company. Another has hastened back to the Argo, and is pouring water down the throat of a sick friend. But he has drunk himself first. That man is as many centuries from self-denial as he is from self-consciousness. In spirit he is further still from the magnanimous Alexander, who empties water on the sand in the midst of a dying army.
Thus the motives go : the Prai§e of Water and the Praise of Friendship. The second is greater than the first ; but it must needs come after it in place.
` Praise of Water ! Praise of Friendship !' cries the angry shade of Dindia Macolnia, rising on its elbow out of the quaint Etruscan Hell. ' I bought the thing because it was pretty, and stood nicely on the chest of drawers.'
It may be that the Greek artist, sitting solitary and content amidst Elysian asphodels, now values that praise more than ours.
