tier, and on llio eastern margin
of that vast desert expanse,
the Llano Estaeado, sixty
miles north of the little Uavu
of Graham, there settled about
u year ago a colony from Ore-1

market, and lumber scarcely to
be had. The settlers, therfeore,
as the cold northers of winter
were "approaching, determined
to .build habitations under
ground. They selected a hill,
in whose sides they excavated
rooms, halls, kitchens and
sleeping apartments, not un

ney was formed by running
a stovepipe up through the
hill to the surface. The
dwellings are perfectly dry and
warm in the coldest and most
freezing: norther. The little
city of caves has been named
