Captain Crawford, whose after his
tory and terrible death are one of the
bloodiest chapters in tlie history of the
frontier, was a noted man. Ho had
carried the chain for young George
Washington in Virginia when they were
both stout lads of eighteen. The two
young men, who were both strong, vig
orous and excelling in athletic sports,
grew much attached to each other, ami
remained fast friends to the day of
Crawford's death. Colonel Washing
ton, even then a noted man, had visited
Crawford's home here in 1770, the year
before Connell came, and he and Craw

But I am keeping the young lady
waiting. Connell was hospitably en

Crawford bent before the fireplace to
turn tlie venison steak, which was
cooking for supper, he noticed that the
cheek (lie light flamed on was redder
than the maple-leaf which the frost had
kissed; that her waist was round and
slender and lithe like tlie hickory sap
ling in the wind; that her hair was
blacker than the bearskin of his sad
dle, anil her eyes as deep and tender as
a fawn's. Anyhow, he was in no hurry
to be pone next morning. He was
looking for a good place to locate, he
said, and might as well look about that
neighborhood for a day, especially as
Captain Crawford was a Ju-tice of the
Peace and surveyor as well, and could
give him much valuable information.
So the voung Virginian staid and staid,

Ann the old, old-Cushioned -juestion,
and with the usual hesitation and the
venerable blush that-is worn to this day
on all such delightful occasions, anil
yet never gets threadbare, Ann said she
would. And so they were married,
and, after living near" the old folks for
several years, moved acro-s the river
some time between 1773 and 1778. and
built a cabin near the spot on which
the Transallegheny House now stands,
on a tract of land which was desig

Music is becoming more and mora
international, and the countries thai
were thought to possess musical knowl
edge par excellence are obliged to ad
mit others into the circle. Lately the
German papers have begun to speak
respectfully of Knglish music, and
here and there Knglish musical work
have been given in Germany. This U
very commendable, as it shows that
the barrier is at last broken down
which tixes musical taste uipn certain
nations. . All nations possess musical
ability if they will develop iL
