Mr, Coyle Says the Caves Will
be Visited by Thousands.
The Montreal Gazette in a recent
issue hud the following: "Mr. E. J.
Coyle. general passenger agent at
Vancouver, who waa also seen at the
head olliees ol the C. P. R. here ye»ter-
repe,ted the story of Western growth
and progress. British Columbia, lie
said, was i inking rapid strides and the
C.P.R. naturally shared in the general
prosperity. 'The tuwist traffic,' Mr-
Coyle remarked, 'is steadily growing.
We have the attractions in our Canadian Rockies and on the Pacific
Coast that druw people from all
quarters of the globe, and to these
beauty spot, people come in augmented numbers yearly. The great
cave of theSelkirks recently discovered
is a wonderful work of nature, and in
the future will be visited by thousand,
of iiersons. Its receflses have not yet
been thoroughly explored, but enough
has been seen to demonstrate that the
great cave ol Derbyshire, the show
place of Eugland does not possess
either the size, the depth ur the beau-
tics of our Canadian cave. The double
daily transcontinental train service of
the C.P.R, was operated last year
much longer than iu any previous
year, aud in 1 DOG, I have nn doubt the
duration of it. opetation will u,- much
more extended than la.t year.

PACIFIC C0AtT SEED.
M, J. Henry's Nurseries.
Probably not one person in a hundred has any idea of the amount of
garden seed, (rown on Ihi. COMt,
l.j-t >,'is ,ii - Pm.',; over ton thousand
acres were devoted to their culture,
extending from California to Briti.h
Columbia, 50,000 pounds of seed being
lent t" 'in firm iu England by a California grower, a shato of them quite
likely to Ik mailed back tu this
country SI " Old Country seeda."
Mr. M. J. Henry, the nurseryman
of Vancouver, while making the production ol fruit tree, hi, main line ol
buiineu, In. been gradually experimenting In seed growing for several
yuri, and find, that many varieties
of Med, can be grown in B. C. equally
a. well or better than in warmer
climates. Hi, orop of the part Reason,
grown in British Columbia and on the
American side, amount, to nearly ten
ton,.
A sample of each variety i, plauted
in Mr. Henry', greenhouses immediately on arrival from hi, grower, to
test the percentage ol growth, and no
seeds that .how a low vitality are sent
out to his customer,.
At first Mr. Henry had to find a
market for hi, seed, with Eattern
•eed dealer,, but for the la.t two or
three year, the local demand hits been
so great that he had none to export,
in fact, he could not till foreign orders
for some $8,000 or $10,000 worth of
seeds,
Mr. Henry now linn seed, on test in
his greenhouse, which will be on
view through February and March.
Intending purchasers are invited to
call and see sample, growing lufore
placing their orders.

RAILWAY WRECK
Engineer J. W. Jones  Killed
Near Vancouver.
Driving at a high speed through the
storm and darkness of Tuesday night
the Great Northern Limited, which
left Seattle at 4 pin, and was due at
Vancouver at 10 pm., shortly before
the latter hour rounded a curve near
Bumaliy lake on the V. W, & Y. and
crashed into a tree lying on the rail,.
The train was wrecked almost completely, the last car alone remaining
on the traek. .lame, IV. Jones, of
Seattle, the engineer, wa, killed,
Charle, HoB'ercnnip, ol Blaine, ,u-
ttained injuries tu his hack, and Paul
B. Thompson, passenger agent Illinois
Central railway, Seattle, had hi, ankle sprained and received a lleah
wound on the knee.
The engineer nml no chance whatever a, the obstacle wa, hidden from
him by the sharp curve at Ihi, point
on the lln., Neveitheless had the
tree Wen all he had to contend with
lie might have driven his train successfully over it. The mil,, howevr,
spread and the locomotive plunged
into the ditch. The tender and baggage car were forced clean over it and
with all except the last car, were
overturned. The rails were torn up
for a distance uf some "200 feet.
The lirst outside help tu reach the
wreck was from Nichol's shinyle bolt
camp. Four men from the camp were
on the scene shortly alter the mishap.
One of these, George .Mooney, was the
lirst to discover the dying engineer.
Hearing what lie thought to be low
moans from the engine lie burrowed
his way under the cab along the ditcli
In the dim light, obscured by the
hissing steam, he saw lirst a hand,
and later part of the body ol poor
.lones. Calling others, a lantern was
procured and Jones was found enveloped in steam lying on the boiler,
pinned down liy the end of the smoking car and in such a position that
his upper body and head were lying
into the in erior of the cab. Axes
were hurriedly brought into play and
it was while the woodwork of the
smoking cur was being hacked away
that Junes uttered the lirst word,
"Don't cut me boys." Later and before being released, he said: "I'm
dying." It is thought that he died
while being carried to the parlor car.
There can be no doubt that Jones met
death at his post and in fact must
have been in his seat when the shock
came. The lireman's escape is nothing short of miraculous. He escaped
with but a scratch or two, crawling
through the cab window which lay
against the embankment, leaving only
an aperture barely sufficient to permit
his body to pasB. The extraordinary
feature of his escape lies in the fact
that a wide atrip of wood from the
top of the smoking car came through
the middle of the cab and passed behind the upright pipes in front of the
boiler. But a few inches difference
would have resulted in hi, being
impaled.
ENGLISH OPERA CO.
Will Appear at Revelstoke.
The Globe says, concerning this
company which is billed to appear at
the Opera House:
"A few hundred musical enthusiasts
defied the wretched weather ol last
night and assembled iu the Conservatory of Music Hall on the occasion of
the concert of the Englith Grand
Concert Company. They were well
repaid for the discomfort they experienced in getting to the hall by hearing a very choice programme oi music
admirably rendered. One cannot
praise too highly the violin playing of
Madame Beatrice Langley, who wa,
evidently in her best form. Madame
Langley is a sterling artist on her
instrument, one whose style i, clastic
and reminiscent ol the breadth of
tone and method of Joachim and
Wilhelmj. While ber left hand technique i, firm and assured, h,r bowing
ha, special distinction in it, boldness
and freedom and it, capacity for producing not only th, most sonorous
power of the instrument, but also it,
delicate and sympathetic quslities,
Mine. Langley played the Cesar Franek
Sonata in A major (or piano and violin,
having for auociate Miss Myrtle
Meggy, the young Australian pianist,
and a, solo, the Wsgner-Wilhelmj
"Albumblatt," Mozart', "Minuet" in
D, Dvoraks "Humorcike" and a
Hungarian Rhapsody by Brsdt. In a
group ol amaller numbers she wa,
equally felioitoiu. Mi„ Myrtl, Meggy,
among other solos, gave I.cschetiizky's
"Intermezzo in octave," with surprising brilliancy and surety of execution and with a variety of nuamesthat
removed it from the category of mere
studies. In her subsequent numbers
Miss Meggy proved that she poaseares
plenty ot temperament, although she
held it in restraint to a great degree.
It will no doubt be allowed to have
lull away when the young artiste ha,
had a few years more experience on
tue concert platform. Mr. Stanley
Adams, who is both the manager and
the baritone of the company, s>u,g
several time, during the evening, lie
distinguished himself by the conscientious interpretation and careful
phrasing of hi, music. The feature
of his selection was the Tschikovski
"Ah I qui Inula d'Amotir," with violin
obligato by Mine. Langley, one of the
must musically appealing numbers ol
he evening."

numbers do the place where published

will doubtless have the same effect."

nml sundry kind?, anil similar
minor publications.   For) instance,
if ii church or school ivnnte to give
an entertainment someone starts
out with ii programme and m-ks
merchants in the city to advertise
in it. The cost to the merchants
may run from one to two dollars
up in ten tlollnr.-i. The theory
upon which the committee noted
wus thut this kind of advertising
does no good and the money spent
results. Mr. Iliiwtliorntliwitite'p

live one till sonic such measure is
enacted on the statute hook.
A UNITED CITY,
We want to see the city of Revelstoke take its place among the cities
nf the Ciiinliun weal, nml the way to
ensure its growth and development i,
hy u united effort to give witle-apreail
publicity lo the advantages ol the city
from a manufacturing, industrial nml
rtiaiilcntnl point ol view. The Cnl-
gury Hoard of Trade has set u line
example to western cities and we cannot ilo better than quote it, iippeitl to
the people ol Calgary and cxpiess the
hope tlmt tin- lentiments expressed
will And a response in Revelstoke.
The appeal amounts to an unceasing
effort to advertise the town and district to the liust advantage, Tho
Board', appeal was na follow,:
"We me convinced that tho time
has arrived to push Calgary and Central Alberttt to the front. We believe
we are located in the heart of the
Cream of Western Canada. Central
Alberta lands have spoken for them-
selves liy the marvellous yields of grain
of the past few years. These prairie,
have proclaimed to the world that
they are a veritable gold mine for the
fanner, As for the city of Calgary,
we believe it is the natural distributing center oi Alberta and adjacent
territory. Calgary is today a great
city in embryo.    In the near future
Uieieforeis wasted.   Therefore it
was agreed by about fifteen of the Ctlgnry should be a second Spokane,
merchants in the city to hand
themselves together and refuse to
lunger subscribe to such advertising. To balance up the thing the
committee asked each member of
the agreement to subscribe a sum
toward an advertising fund to be

Then when some worthy organization wanted advertising for its
programme, it was directed to
Major Anderson, who either just
subscribed an amount directly
from tin- fund or paid for the
printing of the programme. The
scheme was remarkably successful.
The men who agreed to Btop this
kind of advertising remained firm
in their promise and were rewarded
hy ilu- results, Most of the bis;
stores in Topeka wen- Jbenefited,
liut a good many of the smaller
stores, nol in the agreement, were
caught harder  this  vear  on this
if not, indeed, u second Denver, in the
heart of a great inland empire of
marvellous productiveness.
These convictions have grown upon
us and have been forced upon us by
the development of the past few years.
The Calgary Board of Trade has done
much to bring about existing conditions. The Board has done it splendid work nnd deserve, the commendation of every citizen of Calgary, but
it is our conviction that Central
Alberta and Calgary have reached the
second stage of development. We
have passed the period of infancy and
colic. We are developing into the
full strength of a magnificent manhood, A great future ia at the
threshold. The conditions are ripe
for an advance movement. Nature
bus bestowed upon Central Alberta
and Calgary every natural resource—
mineral, agricultural, climatic, scenic.
The evolution of these natural en-
dowments into finished and magnificent products ha, just begun.
It falls to our lot, ive believe, to lay
FAMILY TRAGEDY
Three Persons Killed.
Elk River, Minn. Jim. 18.—Three
person, are dead aa the result of family
trouble in the village ol Otsego, three

his wife and Justin Adnmt. and then
killed himself,
The tragedy ocourrcd last night at
the Brandt home. For some time
puat neighbors have expeuted trouble,
it i, said, on account ol Adams' alleged
attention to Mrs. Brandt. Last night
Brandt bad a violent quarrel with hi,
wife, When the new, ot tho tragedy

outside the town. The coroner is

DEUTSCHMAN'S
FAMOUS CAVES
In the Selkirk Mountains. B, C,
Mrs, Spragge has cuntriluited to
the (.llohe the following excellent
write-up of the caves from n personal visit ninde hy her in August.
The article is illustrated with excellent sketches made liy Mrs.
Spragge on the ground :
When 1 promised to visit the
newlyrdiscovered caves in the Selkirk Mountains as a aei[iiel to un
article upon them contributed to
The tllobe during last summer, I
little guessed what I was undertaking. They were only four and
a half hours' distant from my summer home at Golden, in the Columbia Valley. I entered soon
after my arrival there into correspondence with a member of the
original party organlned at Revelstoke in the end of May, 1005, to
explore them.
1 learned from him they were
quite accessible by a four hours'
climb, "taking it easy," from the (J.
P. R. track; that Deutschman, the
discoverer, was camped on the spot
and came down to Ross Peak water
tank every Friday for his mail, so
could be secured us a guide without difficulty,
Possessed of this information, 1
set 'to work to study caves in
general, my knowledge being limited to the celebrated limestone
caves of Bermuda, with their pearly
walls and forests of stalactites and
stalagmites. I discovered, thanks
to Mr. Charles Horner, that the
most famous of nature's underground palaces are the grottoes oi
Hun and Rochefort in Belgium,
those of Dargilan and Padirae in
France, but the most wonderful,
beautiful and extensive of all is the
Grotto d'Adelsberg in Austria. It
was found by peasants, but has
never yet been fully explored.
The largest subterranean river
known, the Piuka, ruiiB through it,
and ths stalactites and stalagmites
are considered the finest in Europe.
I learnt, further, a newly-coined
word—speleology. A speleologist
is one who treads wriere the foot of
man never trod before, and risks
his life in the pursuits of science
by descending into the caverns and
grottoes of the earth. Monsieur E.
A. Martel, Secretary of llie Societie
de Speleologie in Paris, is undoubtedly the chief speleologist of the
day; during the last sixteen years
he had burrowed under the crust
of the earth in France, Austria,
Spain and Great Britain. He
takes with him eight hundredweight of baggage, consisting of
plummet lines, rope, iron ladders,
pulleys, hand winches, pick-axes,
spades, hammers, graving toois,
pots of white paint to mark tbe
course of his travels, and, last, but
by no means least, a portable
waterproof canvas boat. He has
also a special costume, strong
enough to resist friction with sharp
rocks and thick enough to protect
his body from the chill of under-
gioiind temperatures,
This is the man for whom the
Dominion Government or the
Canadian Paitic Railway Company
should send next spring to
thoroughly explore nnd develop the
Caves of Cheops. I have adopted
this name—which was suggested to
Mr. Wheeler, the eminent Government engineer, and recommended
by him to his department at
Ottawa—as the most suitable that
could be chosen, since the caves are
directly below Mount Cheops, and
recall, besides, one of the largest
pyramids of Egypt. Equipped
J,hus with information and escorted
'by a well-known Government oili-
cial who is so expert n camper as
to merit the title 1 have conferred
upon him, of the Campaigner, two
women left (lolden by the C. P. R,
express in the middle ot August for
the valley ol the Ij)ecilliwaet,
where they pi toln-J their tentsloe-
side the traok lt\o4 to '-Ross, Peak

TheWa^r,WWt(,ji^^iis
and one day was lost awaiting
Deiltschman and improved conditions. We had, thanks to the
Campaigner, a stove inside our
tent anil delied the elements; these
are not to be lightly esteemed in
the mountain passes, where rainy
days and nights are facts of cold
and penetrating dampness beneath
n canvas roof which no external
lire can dissipate, nor could we indulge in refreshing sleep with
trains perpetually rolling past like
miniature earthquakes or snorting
and puffing at the tank while
absorbing their liquid supply.
Sunday morning, the 20th of
August, was a lovely day, with a
sunny sky and cool wind, ideal
weather for mountain-climbing;
still Deiitschnian did not appear,
and his mail, witli our commanding epistle reinforced by a wire,
reposed peacefully in his letter box
below'the tank. The Campaigner,
who has every confidence in his
mountain experiences, said, "Let
us start; the caves are up the valley
and it is no trick to follow the
trail." The older woman, who has
some considerable knowledge of
trails and also of amateurs, hesitated, having heard that the said
trail was involved, not to say obscure, in some places; however,
time was an object, the official's
leave of absence being limited; so
she was overruled and the trio
started, preliminary survey having
located an apparently obvious path.
Our escort carried on bis stalwart
shoulders a 25-pound pack, for
with every confidence in Deutsch-
man's hospitality it was quite
possible his supplies might be
limited. We soon began to ascend
through u magnificent forest of
hemlocks with a fine undergrowth
of Saskatoon bushes, whose plump,
juicy berries were most refreshing;
the trail was plain enough so far,
though much encumbered by fallen
trees of large girth, whioh are most
annoying and wearisome to clamber over, but we pushed bravely on
and at last came out of the forest
upon a slope of long grass. Ponies
had been brought as far as this
point, and there were paths made
by them in all directions. The
Campaigner east about anil
the elder woman's heart failed
her and she longed ardently
for Deutschman. The path selected
seemed the most used and led
down towards the creek. We could
not go far astrav in llie narrow

Mr. Evan, strongly urged the Government to furni.li stiinlping powder
at cost to enable the settler to clear
larger area, aud get it under cultivation. In California, good stumping
powder could be purchased for %i a
box. Here he paid $7.18;. He congratulated the Government on their
promise to amend the Municipal
Clauses Act, and he hoped thin .pro*
niise would be fulfilled. He trusted
the Premier would also extend hi,
amendments to the Schools Act, with,
respeot to which he declared that lie
had not met one man, Liberal or
Conservative, who was content with
the provision, «s they now etcod.
Education wae the foundation on
which the fabric of true success in life
was erected.
Mr. Evan, then urged that more
systematic steps be taken for protec
tion of forests from lire.
Parker William, declared the jeremiad, of the opposition on the blue
ruin prospects of the province had
not been realised. The ruination
theory had now been abandoned and
"geueral prosperity" was now the
plausible explanation. It was a ridiculous idea that party governments
could do anything to promote commercial prosperity. The Socialist,
believed that the house attached too
much importance lo what it called
the "business" class, whilst the majority of the people were not "business,"
but working people and were ignored.
Two lawyers would eat up the whole
years earnings of a workingman in
two davs. Today the administration
of the law had become an instrument
oi the rich and strong to oppress the
poor and weak. This would have to
be remedied.
Referring to the railway policy of
the government he commended them
for continuing to refuse to put their
hands into the public funds to aid
grafters.   There was no need for more
irrants
valley up which we were ascending i railway,; there was no need to open
up more land to settlers; there was no
need to interfere with the few paltry
acres of the poor Indian.
He twitted the opposition with their
eagerness last session to give all kind
ui subsidies to any kind of a railway
policy. He scorned the claims of Mr,
J. A. Maedonald, the member fur
Rossland, to having helped along the
smelter bill. Referring to alien labor,
lie declared that Doukhobors worked
for half the rates othtr men would.
This was the result of the much
lauded immigration policy of tbe
Dominion government.
Mr. H. Tanner thought the reason
the supporters ol the government
attacked the Dominion government
was that they could find nothing to
talk about in the speech Irom the
throne. They seemed very proud of
their surplus; it wasa surplus obtained
by largely increased taxation and impairing llie eiliciency of the public
service, and especially education. Ho
strongly enforced tbe demands of the
member for Cowiclinu for iissistauce
in laud clearing, especially cheap
•tumping powder,
Mr. Tanner claimed that nothing
wouldcause generous settlement in
British Columbia unless the onerous
Conditions of land settlement were
modified, It was too expensive and
ditlicnlt. He condemned theiniliction
of a costly experiment on the provinco
in the forni of the Schools act. «*>mm
.Mr. R. Hall said nu doubt the return of ii Conservative member for
Albernl would be a great relief to tbe
govefhm'ent'iii'lifting the nightmare
that hud worried thoin since they
came into power lest the Socialist
Support should be withdrawn. .-He
condemned the School' Act. He contended^ that the''prosperity of the
Rubbering ^industry wus tbe direct
result of tjje 'Dominion (,g^yerilm,ei]t

to the Songhees reserve. As to the
railway policy, no doubt the Premier
who although a young man wa, one
uf the ablest premiers the province
ever had, would develop that just
about the time he wa, ready to go to
the country. That was the science of
politics.
As to the surplus, he did not know
what they meant; he only saw in
creased taxation' and refraining from
necessary expenditure,.     ■

Mr. J. Oliver, referring to his question, of which notice had been given
to the following effect, "aBking for a

FAMOUS CAVES

with insurmountable walls on
either side, but, alas, it came to an
abrupt conclusion on a steep hillside with a nice bank of snow and
ice at the bottom sloping to the
water's edge. Il was not far to fall
but seemed an unnecessary expert-
iiii-iit if avoidable, so our escort
laid aside his pack and liy the
assistance of bushes and strong
anus we were hauled aerO's the
slippery green incline, landed with
one tumble and a bruised arm on
tl".- snowbank, thence on up the
side of the brawling creek, a tiresome but gradual ascent over big
rocks and debris for half a mile.
At this point we came upon two
boys returning from the cave, who
informed us that Deutschman had
gone down to the tank to meet us
and we had missed him on the
trail where the long grass and the
pony tracks had misled us, for we
should have gone up instead of
down, and would have avoided the
creek and saved ourselves much
superfluous labor and fatigue. We
were now on the right road, so sat
down to lunch and wait for
Deutschman, who soon appeared
upon the scene and proved a fine
type of the western miner and
prospector—tall, thin, tougli and
supple as whipcord.
We sped on with the Campaigner's pack to prepare our way, giving us directions that were easy to
follow. We proceeded onwards
and upwards over some stiff and
slippery inclines along the sides of
the canyon, which grew narrower,
and the trail in consequence ever
steeper and harder, but our escort,
relieved of his burden, was now
able to lend a helping hand. The
crossing of the roaring creek on
tottering wet rocks and one small
pile was somewhat adventurous,
culling for prompt and unhesitating action. Then the worst was
over. Though the ascent continued
long and arduous, it was only
steep, not made difficult with
brush, rocks and slippery grass.
At last the canyon narrowed to a
gully like a deep cutting, in which
big plants and bracken grew almost breast-high and the path was
barely perceptible amid the tangle
of vegetation. We heard shouts
from Deutschman, who was hailing
us from the top of the bluff on
which lie is represented, and knew
we had arrived, though no tents
were yet in sight. Turning to the
left, as lie indicated, we scaled the
side oi the gully and found ourselves in a few strides more in a
perfect natural park dotted with
superb balsam firs from 150 to '250
years old. tall and straight, perfect
specimens of their kind. No more
ideal place for a camp can be
imaeined than this flowery meadow,
surrounded by magnificent snow
capped peaks in the heart of the
Selkirk Mountains. Our tents
were most luxurious, with beds of
hay rais,-il on logs and abundance
of blankets. Deutschman had an
appetizing supper ready, with bannocks to beguile an epicure anil
the best batter we had tasted in
British Columbia, It had taken
us four hours of slow climbing, for
the sun was hot, and we had both
lunched and wandered from the
right path, to rise 1,1)00 feet above
the C. P. R. and to accomplish two
miles, but it is calculated that one
of such miles is equal to two on the
level, so we had not done so badly
on the whole.
We made a preliminary survey
ot Cougar Creek valley before dark,
and its beauty exceeded our most
aanguine expectations, with its
great glacier, twin lakes, two cascades, tl ree waterfalls, two natural
bridges and magnificent views,
apart from the caves and the freaks
of Cougar Creek. This stream
rushes down irom its icebed in the
glacier at the head of the valley

and suddenly disappears beneath a
great wall of rocks at the west end
of the first natural bridge, 350 feet
to the east, stealing quietly out
from beneath a grassy slope. It
-continues a chequered career of
cascades and rapids until it dives
again into a huge fissure in the
rocks under the second natural
bridge, whence it roars and
rumbleB away into the bowels ol
the earth. This second bridge has
been christened "The Mill," because the noise ot the water sounds
like the ceaseless revolution ol
hundreds of wheels. The channel
carved by the torrent in the solid
rock beneath the bridge is full of
-curious potholes like great cylin
ders, The Campaigner assisted me
into one, from which we gazed
down over the vanished fall, whose
bottom was lost to view ; we stood
in this bole up to our shoulders
and found it much easier to get in
than out again, for we were prospecting without our guide.
Cougar Creek, after it disappears
under the Mill Bridge, flows
through the Auditorium cave im-
mediately below Deutschman's
-camp, and emerges again into
daylight in a narrow canyon, hence
with a rush and kick of white heels
it dives once more into the mountain-side.
Tbe latest discovery in grottos
has been made in this canyon,
which the Campaigner was the first
person after Deutschman to enter,
the approach being both difficult
and dangerous ; indeed, he nearly
came to serious grief in his explorations, ae reported to us later. He
followed his guide safely down into
the canyon on a half-inch rope,
125 feet long, and they found
themselves in the largest cave yet
-entered, which could contain a big
building ; there iB a hole 50 ft. in
diameter at the top, through which
t trees and mountain peaks are
plainly visible, with a most curious
weird effect as seen from this subterranean point of view. Out ot
this great vault a passage runs in
a north-westerly direction, dropping gradually down in a series of
ledges ; it was followed for two
miles—a distance ot 8,000 feet from
the brink of the canyon—where it
lead into a new grotto ot entrancing beauty, whose walls are
literally covered with stalactites,
varying in length from one to
twenty inches. Thousands of teet
of crystalized lime hang in
glistening draperies, in places pure
white, then shading to cream or a
delicate pink, and sparkling in the
glare oi light like myriads of
diamonds. For over a quarter oi
a mile the floor is of crystallized
lime, sounding under ioot like
flint.
Tbe course oi the creek was
followed ior 700 feet from the big
cave, where it turns off and iB not
seen again, the passage pursued
being the old channel. This was
followed for two miles without the
end being attained. At times the
roof waB not more than 30 or 40
feet high, at others several hundred feet. In several placet in the
crystal cave the light would not
reach the roof, or give any idea of
its height.
The air in some of the branch
passages explored was cold, but in
the main one it was pure and
pleasant. A large slab of rock,
like a big shingle, was brought up
from the crystal cave, which had
fallen from the walls. The limestone, we observed, had crystallized upon it in a floreated pattern
exactly like the bead of a cauliflower : the whole piece measured
about eighteen inches in length
by nine inches in depth, and
looked like a masa ol delicate
carving. The effect oi a whole
interior lined with this pearly
formation must be truly daziling
•nd wonderful.
