Ma la Plrtr Calac KvldeBtlr Mat hr Freaea aaa l'd la Traala with ta ; . ' , Iaalaaa. . . - Deep down in the bottom of an old well which for more than a century bad been forgotten, the workmen who wer excavating in Pittsburg for a new pas senger station dug up a box of coin; which date back to the period when al' the territory on which Pittsburg is built and surrounding country was in the hands of the French. The find is one of the rarest that hat been made in this section of the countr; for a number of years. While there i considerable speculation as to how th coins came to be placed there In a bo and even for what purposes the well we. dug, are rather doubtful, it is know, from the dates on the pieces of monc: that they were used prior to the time t the French and Indian war. Coin co' lectors pronounce the pieces of monf to be very rare, and a coin dealer sal that they are not listed In the catr logues. This being the case, the persor who have the coins In their possessio may get a handsome price for them. - The money had been placed In a tl box when it wa's deposited in the wel: Scraps of the box were found, but th rust had almost completely eaten It up Scattered about the scraps of the bo ibout SO coins were picked up. Thef also had been greatly affected by rur and some of them were almost df stroyed. The dates on only a few couK be made out, and even on these the la"-' figure is doubtful. On one the date ' "165," the last figure being illeglbl On others were dates, Indicating that tin coins had been made some time In th fifties in the eighteenth century. Most of the coins are of copper, bv there are. about-half a dozen of silver It Is evident that there had been mar more coins in the box, but that they hs-" been destroyed by rust. On one side of the conner coins Is the profile of an Ir- dlan drawing a bow and on the othr ft" the trior", -thistle and rose, probab!" i-rfloatlnsr hostility toward England. Th only words that are legible in the lr-'-'' Ion sre "Hex Lachitauta." It ! .! evMont that, the coins weremsf br the French and used In trading wltfc he Indians. " 1 ' ' ' 0E4TH ENDS QUEER ROMANCE.
