Few Oregon people are aware of tbe

In the heart of the Cascade rsuge of
mountains In Southern Oregon.
Imagine a vast pit alx milea in
diameter, with almost perpendicular
shies 4000 t.. 0000 feet In height, and
you have Crater lake.
For centuries this lake was knewn to
the Indians under the name of l.lao
Rook. It was viewed with fear aa an
abode of evil spirits, and was the
source of many legenda. Crater lake
was first seen by white men in 1S63.
l'revlous to that Its exlatance waa
unknown, except to the Indian trlbea
near It. It was first explored In 1872
by a party of four, Captain Applegate
being oue of the number, Hinoe then
il has been several times visited by
dill'erent parties of geologists tha
depth of the lake has Ixcu ascertained
in many places, and tlie island and Ita
orater have been explored.
All these various explorations have
demonstrated that many thousand
years ago an enormous volcano stood
where Crater lake is, aud with a height
possibly equal to that of Mt Shasta,
14,030 feet, and that the vast accumula
tion of molten material within it
escaped at a level thousauds of feet
below the summit, leaving the
mountain hollow, and the summit,
having so mu eii of its support removed,
fell in and disappeared In tbe molten
reservoir below. In the lapse of agea
the aiibterranean tires die. I out, and
the great pit, from 4000 to 6'W0 feet
below tbe surrounding walls, was
partially filled by water. The laland,
which is about 800 feet high, aud bas a
crater 80 feet deep, la claimed by some
to represent the summit of tha sunken
volcano. Suob Is one theory, and
there are strong reasons for believing
il is tbe true one. Crater lake Is about
six ml lea aoroaa it; hence tbe enormous
amount of molten material within it
when the voloano waa living.
