ANCIENT LOG CABIN.
BTANDS ON LAND THAT ONCE BE?
LONGED TO WILLIAM PENN.
With Additions It Is Ono or tho Old Manor
IIoum-h and Wim tho IMrthplaco of Prom?
inent Families? Finding nn KncH"h Coin
of 170 Years Ago.
In tho northwestern part of tho pretty
little town of Media, tho county seat of
Delaware county, Pa., on a tract of land
known as "Star Monnt," owned by
Samuel W. Powell, is loented n genuine
curiosity in (ho form of an old log
bouse, which contains much to interest
tho antiquarian, und to afford material
for tho historian. Tho structure meas?
ures 32 feet in length and is 20 foot
wido and 15 feet high. It is said to be
one of tho original manor houses con?
structed shortly after tho arrival of Wil?
liam Penn and his colony on tho banks
of the Delaware river. Circumstances
point toward that belief, and prove the
claim to antiquity, which makes tho
old loghonse an important link connect?
ing tho distant past with the present.
This honso is constructed of oak and
chestnut legs hewn from tho primeval
forest, while standing besido it is a
giant oak, tho largest by all odds in tho
surrounding country, which is a living
witness of tho ago of tho lowly dwell?
ing which finds shelter beneath its huge
outspreading arms. Tree and honso aro
each iho complement of tho other, and
seem destined to coutinno their intima?
cy during succeeding years, and perhaps
In the year 1081 A. D., on the 2d
day of March, Peter and William Tay?
lor purchased tho land upon which these
objects of interest stand from William
Penn in England, and on tho 22d inst.
Thomas Powell took title to tho land
upon which the house and tree stand
and adjacent tracts, and after numerous
transfers it finally came into the pos?
session of Mr. Powell, who formerly
resided in this city, but who now lives
in ".Star Mount," in northwest Media.
Upon discovering tho historic value of
the house and oak, he subsequently took
precautions to preserve tho objects of a
past ago and civilization.
Tho house is constructed of logs, and
to prevent the entrance of cold air they
were chinked with mortar. Tho small
windows and doors were hand made,
from tho primitive oak cut from tho
foiest. Tho faces and ends of those logs
mo scarred and defaced by exposure to
tho storms cf at least two centuries,
and show plainly tho ravages of tho
"tooth of time." but at heart areas
hard and sound as when first placed in
position to form a house for one of
Tho present owner, desiring to both
pieservo this ancient structure and to
improvo its surroundings, added some
seven or eight years ago several addi?
tional rooms to tho original mansion,
but outside the massive old chimney is
exposed to view, and inside the log?
with their plastering, tho windows and
doors with tlicir wooden latches and
strings may bo seen, while the low ceil?
ing of homemade boards point to n dato
when the ax and saw wero almost uni?
versally used by our forefathers.
At, tho time when the additions abovo
mentioned wero made an old English
coin was found. Upon examination tho
coin proved to bo a penny of the roign
of King George I, and while tho dato is
almost illegible, it seems to bo 1724, or
perhaps an earlier date. This old Eng?
lish penny was lying under tho old
WOOdcn doer Bill, and had become im?
bedded in the ground, and was only
brought to light I y the use of pick and
shove). History and tradition unite in
die story in n lotion to this old hor.se.
Beginning with tho river Delaware
and reaching as far as portions of Ches?
ter county, and bounded also by Ridley
and ( nun creeks, wero some two tracts
of land deeded to tho Taylors, Powells
and others in 1(181 by tho proprietor
and founder of our .-t?te, William Penn.
Upon each of these two tracts or parcels
of land log houses were erected, and ono
of them was destroyed by lire. Ono of
these houses, the one now owned by Mr.
Powell in Upper Providence township,
adjoining the town of Media, is tho solo
survivor, and .it is correspondingly
prized by him.
The house and old oak, together with
the curiosities connected with them,
ore very antique, anil there is no doubt
but that the claim of antiquity is well
founded. Jn 1715 it was in the old log
cabin that .lohn Powell changed from
the Quaker to the Baptist faith, and or?
ganized (he First Baptist church of Del?
aware county, known ns tho Brandy
wine chmch. The congregation was
formed on June I I, l?l?, with 15 mem?
bers, anil among tho delegates wero
Abel Morgan of this city and dames
Jones and Joseph Eaton of Delaware.
Thus the old house, constructed by a
first settler from tho virgin forest, which
extended from far inland to the shores
of tho Delaware river, has both a civil
and a religious history, and has been
both the hiithplaco of prominent fami?
lies and tho habitation within whoso
walls a prominent denomination of this
and surrounding country first sprungiu
to existence.?Philadolphia Telegraph.
According to the invariable custom of
tho Duke of Richmond's family, it is
prescribed that tbo eldest son and tho
eldest son of the eldest sou shall bo
named after King Charles II, to whom
they ewe so much. The sniuo principle
is preserved in Lord Salisbury^ family,
where the eldest sons are named .lames,
after Janu s I, who bestowed tho earl?
dom of Salisbury rvid viscounty of Cran
borno on the original founder of tho
Getting to it.

To Avoid Wrinkle* Uno Lukewarm Water.
It is paid that everything which bus tin
ouiollloDt ofTeot on tho skin induces wrin?
kles. Hot baths in pnrtloulnr should ho
avoided, as they dilnto tho skin greatly
and cause thereby fine lines. Lukewarm
water is tho proper thing for tho complor
lon, according to tho latest advlcos, and if
wrinkles aro already formed tltoy should
ho smoothed away by persistent, massage
treatment. This treatment is glvun with
tho thumb, without tho aid of any sort of
ointment, ami tho movement Is crosswise.
Great patience and persovoranco aro tho
solo price of this treatment, which is stat?
ed to bo peculiarly ollicaclous, but as pa?
tience and persovoranco aro ovon less com?
mon than money, doubtless many women
would prefer to Rain tho result by an out?
lay of money. If massage could only bo
bought by tho bottle, It would bomoroox
Camphor Is not very often montioned In
toilet recipes, and yet it is peculiarly heal?
ing and bleaching in its effect on tho skin.
Tho best spirits of camphor aro mode
at homo by buying tho gum camphor,
crumbling it and placing It in a lurgo bot
ilo and filling t lie bottle with alcohol. Tho
alcohol will absorb a largo quantity of
gum, and the spirits of camphor thus ob?
tained are very strong. Diluted it is excel?
lent for sunburn, relieving the soreness and
Inflammation and often preventing tho
skin from coming off. A few drops in the
bath and in the water in which tho hair is
washed help to keep tho skin and scalp in
good condition. Camphor ice is one of the
best remedies for chapped and rough
hands, but ought never to bo used for tho
lips, as it has a bleaching effect.
All illustration is given of a bicyclo cos
tumo of tan cloth. The trousers aro ex?
ceedingly full and aro gathered Into a band
below the knee. The short, tight fitting
jacket closes with two rows of largo pearl
buttons and has a wldo collar and rovers
of ottoman sill; of the same color as the
cloth. Tho ample sleeves bavo a stitched
cuff adorned with a large button. A man's
collar and tie tire worn, a sailor hat of
brown straw and leggings.
Mohair of Various Colors?Crepon nnd
Among the winter novelties in fabrics
arc moire silk poplin and a magnilicont
new crepon of alternate dark and light
stripes, tho dark stripe being embroidered
with gold beads. Mohair and alpaca aro
shown in nil dark shades and many light
ones, both plain and with a printed llguro
in a contrast Lug color. The figured mo?
hair is especially liked by French dress?
makers Just now, as tho tint of the flguru
may bo repeated in the trimmings with
excellent offect. Dark blue with a scarlet
pattern, golden brown with dark blue,
white with black, black with emerald
green and bottle green with golden brown
tire some of the combinations. Crcpons
continue to bo worn, while light weight
cloths with n smooth finish are also seen.
Silk and wool mixtures in two colors aro
still liked for tho street, and woolen suit?
ings in bluo and green plaids make smart
Satins and velvets, shot and plain, will
bo largely employed for trimming by tai?
loring establishments. Nearly all the new
jackets have rovers or a collar of velvet.
Soft, printed French flannels in dark or
medium shades will be employed forolonkf
for small children. Those cloaks are mad(.
very simply and lined and trimmed with
Soft woolen brocades, with a slight, ad
mlxturn of silk, make very pretty day
gowns, us do figured wools with narrow
velvet, stripes. Zihollnn cloths and parti?
colored cheviots nre ill so fashionable, while
woolen materials woven with large horse
cloili checks, the underside of n plain
tint, dull bluo goods like military cloth,
Borges and meltons will all bo utilized by
tin* leading modistes.
An illustration is given of a dinner
gown of satin duchess and liberty satin
In turquoise blue. The plain gniic i. skirt
Is of satin duchess. Tho bodice i-> of ac?
cordion plaited liberty satin and has a
round dccollotngo edged with a pulling.
Hands of ribbon pass over the shouldors
and are retained in place by bunches of
forgotmonots. The short, very full nloovos
of satin duchess have an accordion plaited
epaulet of liberty satin fastened with a
pearl buoklu. .Tunic ClIOI.t.ET.
WITH THE TIDE.
I v*s?tched htm I lovo going front mo
(Ah, would to Ood I hud died!).
And I prayed to tho grout all Futher
To stay tho turn of tho tide.
To stay the ebbt And ho barkened,
And over the Waves rolled on,
Till meadow and gurden and hedgerows
I eould soo them never u ono.
For I know that bay lovo wies dying;
At tho turn of the tide he must go.
Tho soul may not loava its dwelling
Till betwixt tho ubb and tho How.
And tho peoplo who all Hooked inland.
They called it a groat springtide,
And I listened and joined in thuir sorrow.
But 1 know iu my heart that I liod.
And my lovo as ho watched tho waters
Sighed wearily for his rest.
Then I prayed once more to our Futher,
For I saw that his will was best.
As tho sea wont slowly hnckwurd
Tho spirit of ono who had died
Was borne on tho wosto of waters.
For the soul must go with tho tide.
