Harpsichord music wafts through the open door of the visitor's center and beckons us to another world. Evening sunlight pours on the emerald grass like honey. Six couples dressed in 18th-century clothing dance on the lawn. The men, in topcoats and hats, gracefully swing the women dressed in long skirts and bonnets. We watch mesmerized, forgetting it is the present and wishing for a moment that it wasn't. Tonight at the Daniel Boone Homestead, near Reading, Pa., is "Evening on the Green," a living history event held several times a year, and one of dozens of events at the homestead that are open to the public.

I am in the minority favoring change of the name Negro Mountain to identify the man whose courage and sacrifice so inspired a community they wanted to name a mountain after him, but could not ("Tribute questioned: 'Negro Mountain' called an honor, others see racism," Feb. 21). History would be lost if statues and tributes to another frontiersman, Daniel Boone, were simply titled, "Some White Dude. " So among the options, "Black Brother Bump" or "African-American Apex," I favor "Nemesis Mountain" with or without the caveat "previously known as Negro Mountain" to honor the individual, even if this is just a nickname, for a name lost in time.

"The American Boy's Handy Book," by Daniel Carter Beard (The Derrydale Press, 391 pages, $11.95). At first glance, this republication of a more than 100-year-old book is simply an artifact of immense nostalgic charm. Daniel Carter Beard, in the late 1800s, was an indomitable enthusiast - first national commissioner of the Boy Scouts of America, president of the Campfire Girls, the precursor of the Girl Scouts, founder of the Sons of Daniel Boone, and more, more, more. The Handy Book was then -- and now again is -- a brim-full collection of guidance on an immensity of subjects, ranging from knot-tying to boat-making, to outdoor survival without appropriate gear.

SOME of the good folk of the media who kindly look after our morals think the country is going to the wrong place in a hand basket.Specifically, Newsweek magazine found that when it took a poll that asked, "Do you think the United States is in a moral and spiritual decline?" 76 percent of the adults said Yes and 20 percent said No.The majority, as usual, is probably right. It accounts for the fact that "the fraying of America's social fabric . . . has become a national obsession." Further, chaos, or the fear of it, "has made Americans nostalgic for a more orderly age."

LEBANON, Pa. -- Pioneers in Daniel Boone's day built log cabins in the woods using little more than an ax. For modern-day Daniel Boones trying not to leave civilization too far behind when they trek into the woods, Conestoga Log Cabins Inc. has the answer. The 7-year-old company produces prefabricated log cabin kits in part of the former Bethlehem Steel plant in Lebanon. Conestoga, according to the owners, is moving successfully into a niche in recreational lodging somewhere between families getting rained on in tents and those making huge investments in recreational vehicles.

MARYLAND IS among the smallest of these United States (42nd in size) and more densely populated than all but five other states. In a word, it's crowded.But Daniel Boone knows better.Dan, no relation to the fabled pioneer, and a much better naturalist -- says it's all in how and where one looks at the state.Boone once drove from marshy, oystery Girdletree, on the southeastern corner of the Shore, to the strip-mined mountains of Kempton, in Garrett County's southwestern corner.It took eight hours -- drive north as long, and you'd be in Boston.

Names for styles of furniture can be confusing. One expert might call a chair Victorian, another Aesthetic Revival, another late 19th century. All could be correct, since Aesthetic Revival describes a type of Victorian furniture made in America in the late 19th century.Furniture collectors should familiarize themselves with the terminology. Mission and Arts and Crafts both describe the heavy, rectangular, plain, often oak furniture made by Stickley and others in the early 1900s.Chippendale was named for a man who designed furniture in England in the last half of the 18th century.

Today, as part of our series "The Human Brain, So To Speak," we explore the phenomenon of: Brain Sludge.Brain sludge is a term coined by leading scientists to describe the vast collection of moronic things that your brain chooses to remember instead of useful information.For example: Take any group of 100 average Americans, and sing to them, "Come and listen to my story 'bout a man named Jed." At least 97 of them will immediately sing: "A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed." They will sing this even if they are attending a funeral.
