ZEPHYRS, KAIADS, OREADS AND SNAKES
2Toah W. Shaftr, Esq., though not a pro
fessional antiquarian, is interested in that
direction nevertheless, and his volant muse
has lately been drawing inspiration from
nature's solitudes along the borders of Mon
tour run, where there are historic associa
tions little dreamed of outside, perhaps, of tlie
membership of the Historical Society of
The boundary between Robinson and Moon
townships is Montour run, and it is strange
that a section so suggestive of poetry and song
is not more familiar to people In the city.
Though the solitudes of the valley resound
several times a day with the rumble of trains
on the railway that runs from the Ohio river
to Imperial, yet the w oods aro of the primeval
type that enthusiastic tourists travel thousands
of miles from Pittsburg to see. The fauna
what is left of it and flora are suggestive of
the remotest recesses of the Allegheny Moun
tains. There are huckleberry bushes on the
knobs that suggest the crotalns horridus, and
though bo has been exterminated, his relative
without the rattle, the copperhead, still lingers
near the confines ef the Kalmia latifolia, or
calico bush, generally called in this section
the little laurel, and hunters almost the only
ones who explore these sylvan solitudes pru
dently don top boots before setting out on their
A LACK OF BEYEBEJ.CE.
Possibly because man has lived more in the
last half century than in the 100,000 years or
more preceding, we of late years have little
reverence for ancient history, and with the
world generally nowadays everything beyond
1840 is ancient, and the paucity of revenue
therefor was shown a few nights since when a
ball, given in honor of the Washington Inau-
utal Centennial, ended in a champagne
But local pride should keep green the memo
ry of the red men, whose combats with our
grandfathers made life interesting 100 years
ago in this country. Fort Vance was situated
near the mouth of Montour run, and one of the
Ferree family was shot and scalped on one of
the knobs near its mouth. Mr. Shaf er stated
the other day that there were some rocks near
Ewing's Mills that were worth inspection, and
a visit was paid them. Mr. Henry Knopf fur
nished the directions, and they were found on
the farm of Mr. Robert Speer, in Moon town
ship. It is somewhat strange that they have
not furnished material for a paper at some of
the meetings of tne Historical bociety.
They are situated near the head of a rocky
glen where an immense glacier stranded and
melted during the time the great ice cap slid
away from the North Pole, carrying with it all
vestiges of the Garden of Eden, which some
scientists say must have been there, as that
portion of the earth -was first fitted for the
genesis of organic life. Enough sand and con
glomerate rock were dropped in this locality to
furnish material for the bnilding of a consid
erable city, and some of the rocks were piled
heterogeneously furnishing shelter for wild
and for the scouts of a century ago who
watched the motions of the children of the
forest, and gave notice to the settlements of
whites of intended scalping forays.
Under Mr. Knopfs directions it was not diffi
cult to find the place. A few yards distant
from the rocks is a cave which can be pene
trated about 100 feet, bnt the pene
trator must get on his knees
to make the jjurney. Under some
large projecting rocks are various inscriptions
chiseled with some iron or steel instrument,
probably the latter, as the rock is Tery hard.
The rock still shows the smoke stain left by the
fires at which the scouts wanned themselves.
It is so overgrown with lichens that some of
the inscriptions must be guessed at. In three
seTt,'ate places is chiseled the word "Lef t" In
"? ter -E. E. B 17bL" Again "Baxter left
den." Some say the name is
Baxter, and it would require
application of a steel brush to
mine, owing to the persistency with
1 the lichens cling to the rock. Mr.Knopf.
-aa born in the vicinity and is now on the
homestretch of his earthly pilgrimage, states
there is no doubt of the antiquity by the in
scriptions, as they wero a traaition in nis in-
fancv ana loot as rresn now as then. v ltnin a
yard is a white oak tree, which reminds one of
the famous Charter oak, but it is evident the
scouts did not leave anything in the
hollow of its trunk, as though it is
some SO inches in .diameter it is still
hale and it is doubtful whether it is 108 years
old. It may have been a sappllng in 1781, but
from what is related of the first growth of
Indiana county, it is more likely to have been
only the suggestion of
AX INCIPIENT ACOEN
when the inscriptions were made. In 1S00
Indiana county was coveted with a robust
forest growth, though history says that 175
years ago the county was covered with rank
but succulent grass similar to that which now
covers the Somerset glades. When the writer
first noticed the inscriptionV'Left" on the left
band side of the entrance, he was inclined to
think it a sort of Billstumpshismark affair
carved by some wag who aimed to puzzle arch
aeoIogists.but in a few minutes he became con
vinced that it bore antiquity's stamp, and if
made by a practical joker he must be a very
old one by this time. It is true the Cofaopolis
boys tell of a Moon township man whom tbey
say, by his own account, i 175 years old, and
they say they know he tells the truth, for as
Thaddens Stevens said, they have it from bis
own lips, but that man has never been known
to even allude to the cavern and its inscrip
tions. At the date of these inscriptions there were
but few clearings in Allegheny county forests.
The explorer started when underneath the
leaves in the cavern he noticed a bit of what
appeared to be a piece of very ancient
yellow newspaper. He had already begun
to feel somewhat Rip-Van-Winklish and
scarce knew whether to shout for
George III. or George Washington when
the fragment caught his eye. The paper proved
to be comparatively modern, and was found to
contain announcements that Maine had surely
gone Republican, assuring the election of,Har
risson and Morton; advertisements of Laird's
shoelstore. Royal baking powder and Keech's
removal to Penn avenue, etc.
Five years later than the date of Inscriptions
Pittsburg only boasted of 36 log houses, one
stone and one frame bouse and five small stores
and its population was not more than 500. The
Indians that roamed through this section in
those days were
being composed largely of the remains of the
six nations, a heterogeneous crowd of Shawnees,
Mingoes, Mohicans (probably among the last of
the latter), Senecas, Mnsies and Sanduskies.
Tbeyneyer ceased troubling until Mad Anthony
knocked the stuffing ont of them 11 years later.
Had it not been that whisky was Rood and
cheaper than milk now is, the condition of the
pioneers would have been Insupportable. Very
few people then considered the moderate use of
spirits a sin, and whisky was a legal tender for
all debts, public and private, save customs
duties. Even preachers were known to receive
It for salary.
The deep glen at the head of which these
chiseled rocks are found is bnt eight miles
from our Court House. Even in this prosaic
work-a-day age it is still suggestive of the
fancies in which the ancient Greeks reveled.
One might easily imagine Diana in charge
with Naiads sporting about its bubbling brooks
and fountains. The bills on each hand are
sufficiently lofty to support the fancy of
Oreads, Satyers and the horned and goat
I ooted-Pau, and there can be no doubt what
ever that the Zephyrs, brothers of the Stars,
do come joyously careering over Moon town
ship In the shades of evening, and as they
Lack not for love fair objects, whom they woo
With gentle whisper.
There is only one drawback in this pleasant
picture, and that is the stray copperhead that
lies in the covert of moist logs ready to strike
his fangs into the calf of explorers, but the
serpents are getting scarcer year by year, as
with all the wisdom imputed to them in the
Bible, tbey do not seem to have sense enough
to keep the domain that man has subdued, and
THEY COME TO GBIEF.
It toad been stated that these inscriptions
were made by Indians, or the Mound Builders,
but this illusion was suddenly dissipated by
their character. The Indians that sported
about here 100 years ago did not belong to that
class of "dam literary fellers" that gave the
old Winnebago chief at Harrisburg perturba
tion. Their traditions were not soul satisfying
and they were innocent of literature. Though
there may have been more or less glamour
thrown about tbfclr feats when related by our
grandfathers, yet there is no doubt that

made with the Pennsylvania Bailroad, the
Baltimore and Ohio Bailroad and the Pitts
burg and Lake Erie Bailroad, and ship

exceeding those from Pittsburg.
Realizing the great advantages assured
by locating on this property, the Westing

town to which special attention is called.
It is designed with reference to the fact
that by October 1 a large population must
find homes there, or in the immediate vicin

OUT IN AMW ROLE.
Justices of the Peace Are to Masquer
ade as Road Inspectors,
UNDER AN OLD ACT OP ASSEMBLY.
How it May Affect the Aldermen of Pitts
burg or Other Cities.
The resolution offered in Bellevue Bor
ough Council to instruct Justices of the
Peace to open the gates of the Allegheny
and New Brighton turnpike free of charge
until the pike is made fit for travel and free
it from toll, opens an interesting question.
If the reader turns to page 1,664 of Purdon's Di
gest he will find tbe law under which Mr.
Watson proposes to bring the company to
boot. It Is found in Section 7,
act of April 29, 1874, which makes
Justices of tbe Peace Road Inspectors.
When a turnpike becomes unfit for use, or in
a dangerous condition, the Justices have power
of giving the toll-taker at a gate three days'
notice to open the gate and let people pass toll
free, and thereafter, until the road is put in
satisfactory condition, the toll-taker is liable to
a fine of HO for each toll taken, and the Jus
tices must act on complaint of citizens, if the
road be found to be in bad shape, and the pike
must be free of toll until the Justices are satis
fled with the repairs.
A SOUTHSIDE CASE.
Some years ago James Hays, deceased, an ex
tensive coal operator, owned a pike on the
Southside. He found it an expensive matter
to keep it In repair during the winter and as
soon as it became cut up by heavy hauling after
the fall rains he had tbe gates thrown open
and the pike was free until tbe weather settled
in the spring. Then he would set a force of
men to work and they wonld open the ditches,
make the center of the road high, roll it smooth
and put it in good sbapo generally. Then the
toll-taker would re-establish himself and make
tbe venture a paying one until bad weather
came again in the fail. Mr. Hays thus made
the pike profitable and pot along with bis cus
tomers with but little triction.
A question arises as to responsibility where
turnpikes extend into the city limits. Alder
men in these cities are ex-offlclo justloes of the
peace. Have they the same control over these
pikes that Justices of the Peace have in
boroughs and townships?
ABOUT CITY ALDEBMEN.
It would seem that tbey have. Again, if a
defect in such pike cause the overturning of a
vehicle and damage, who is responsible,
the city or the turnpike company? As
this; question is likely to be raised,
it is suggested that some legislator
might serve his country profitably by having
the mist cleared away, though it is extensively
believed that aldermen would have the same
power in tbe premises that their brethren in
boroughs and townships have. Then again It
is asked if aldermen have no power to act
would Councils have T
As the provisions of the law are not very well
known, it is hoped bv some that some Justices
uf the Peace will read up and. Instead of spend
ine their time In the fomentation and en
couragement of trivial litigation, see to it that
the highways are kept in better condition; and
this is a very good time of year to begin, as
notices are now put out by Supervisors notify
ing tbe ruralists that they are expected to do
some soldiering on the roads.

It is for clothiers of this city putting them
selves up as competitors to Gusky's. Of

lous believe that their claims are true, but
unfortunately it happens that the average

little time in investigating these claims.
