It waa then that William Enghr told his abort, but interesting story. It waa in tho days of 185t. when I waa a boy of 14 years, that I remember remember walking through tho woods to at tend dances In thla very room. I remember remember well the old tunea that the fiddlers used to play aa they sat upon a platform In the corner there. They played 'Turkey in the Straw, end 'Money Must.' and many other old favorlrea. "The families - from all around used to drive to the old Lawton bomestead here and many enjoyable evenings wore spent. The womrn those days wore crinoline and tioot skirts, and the dances were different from the dances ot today. General Lawton was also a boy at that time and be was learning to be a. wheel wright" William Engle told his Interested listeners that he had not entered the house from that time until Wednesday Wednesday of this week. He directed the at ten U on of hla friends to tire old logs that still served a a floor, but Which are covered with linoleum, A few of the doors and windows, he aald, have teen altered and enlarged.

An Interview with the distinguished gentleman la a decided treat, for ho i a most pleasant conversationalist, possessing an engaging, almost endearing endearing personality, and la endowed with great mental scope and Intel lectual profundity. One cannot talk long with the eminent pianist without hie expounding expounding In enthtisLastlo manner on mualo and its mission and purpose In tho general scheme of Ufa. In a very Interesting manner he describes the difference between real muaic, musical harmony, which appeals appeals to th spiritual side of life, and th vulgarised sound vibrations which only affect certain physical nerve and never touch one's mentality at all. Zelaya doe not presume to crlUcli anyone, for ha is sponsor for the statement that the keynote tf success Is appreciation and not criticism.
