. GREAT OREGON CAVES.
The largest limestone caves in the
world are in Oregon; iu Josephine
conuty, fur np in the depths of the
Cascade mountains; 45 miles from the
railroad. Thoso great and remarkable
labyrinths lie in the midst of a forest
solitude,' aro reached only by a nar
row trail,' and are comparatively un
explored. Remote and undisturbed
the great caves lie, remarkable, won
derful to the greatest degree, yet al
most unknown except to those who
live and dwell near about them.
A few years ago a banter pnrsned a
bear throngfi the southern Oregon
mountains. He followed it to its den
and was led into the month of these
wonderful caves. Following into the
opening the hnnter was led into an
endless labyrinth of passages, tun
nels, halln nnd ravems,all of liuiostono
of purest white and the most beautiful
There are two entrances to the caves,
one above the other and about 2o0
feet apart on tho mountain side, form
ing practically two caves, the explorer
can climb from one to the other on the
interior. The only difference between
the npper and tho lower cave is that
the upper 0110 is possessed of fino
stalnctito formations,-while in the
lower one none apiiear. Eutering the
lower cave the explorer finds himself
in a small hallway, from which an
endless number of passages ramify
into the depths of the mountains.
Following theso one will find himself
being led through tunnels that at times
open np wide and high enough to ad
mit several teams abreast, whilo at
other times they are so low and nar
row as to be passed through only on
hmids and knees. A strong current of
air passes through these tunnels, mak
ing it dilllcult to keep a torch lighted,
and proving that there must be a cor-
resKindiiig outlet on tho opposite
Bide of tho mountain that has as yet
not been discovered.
There are no square chambers or halls
in the caves. Irregularity is mani
fest everywhere throughout them, and
in this particular they aro nnsurpass
ed. There aro no parallel walls, few
straight ones, hut corners are every
where. Beautiful views of stalactites
and stalagmites of limestone stand
out in bold relief ngaiust snow-white
walls, and in the light of the cxplor
cr's torch, the crystals on the walls
and columns sparkle mid glitter like
so many diamonds.
Ono of tho wonders of the cave is
tho Devil's banquet ball. This is an
immense chamber that is found far
back about three-fourths of a milt1
from tho lower entrance. It is a large
circular hall, ISO feet across, and
with a domed ceiling that stands tlO
feet from the floor ut the highest
point, with long and hrilliunt stalac
tites hanging like extravagant floral
decorations from every Mint above.
On each side of the immense room and
opiosito each other aro the two arch
ed entrances of the great hall. .Stand
ing iu one of these entrances and gaz
ing across with uplifted torch, the
explorer witnesses a sight ho will
never forget. Heautiful, yet awe-in
spiring and almost grewsome, is the
The dismal shadows from the flick
eriug lights, leap liitlier and yon
alniut the walls and ceiling and im
part a ghoulish dance-liko asixct.
Multitudes of little streams trickle
down the walls mid fill the hall with
rippling music, pleasant for devils,
perhaps, but not at all such for suier
Btitious explorers; and by the way,
nearly all the explorers of these raves
find that they are suiierstitious in
some degree so long as they are iu thu
caves. Hut the music! As one looks
and listens tliey can easily imagine
that the devil is holding high carni
val iu his favorite banquet hall. One
can see the myriad little imps as they
(aT iu and about thu dark corners
anil crevices or the great hall. I p
and down they dance, swinging their
arms in fiendish glee until the cxplor
er gets enough and makes his retreat,
but the devil and his imps continue
to make merry and the dam e goes on
Just how far these caves have Im-cii
penetrated and the winding istssagf-s
explored, is not known, hut probably
no exploring iiarty lias ever gone more
than a mile into the bowels of the vast
risk mountain. Distance in these
eaves is something that cannot be
measured with accuracy. The sub
terranean niH'iiings wind in and nut,
and turn and twist with endless varia
tions. From a single room or hall,
a half dozen low and narrow imssages
may ramify. Nnnc of these os-iiings
had out into other stone-walled,
stone-ceiled, snow-white Bir(miiits ;
some, ufter describing a carve, or af
ter making many short turns, and
acute angles, return to the same room.
Koine of the o nings lead dowu to un
known depths, while others lead to
passages aloft. Heyoiid any doubt the
whole mountain is one vast honey
comb of limestone, and many years
will pass before they will bo com
pletely explored, in truth they may
never be. For tiny irty of explorers
to enter the raves without a guide
would be risky, a very risky undertak
ing. If one onr became farily en
tangled in the intricate labyrinths of
rooms and the narrow tunnels and
the wide halls, it would be iinsiss
ible to find thu way out to the 0'ii
The lost explorer in these great Ore
gon raves might wander ill helpleas
bewilderment through gloomy regions
for days, w.i-lis and even months
without finding an outlet from bis
There are aouic people w ho concede
that these raves were, in prehistorc
time, the abiding place of human be-
I ings, of a strange people who lived in !
the lime of the cave dwellers' age. If '
I this be true it would set-in that there
wonld be something loft to show that
such a people once dwelt in the moun
tain labyrinths. No traco can bo
found where human beings have at
former times inhabited these dungeon
like abodes, or even visited them.
Tho most remarkable feature of the
upper cave is wliat is known as the
Queen's chamber a great, spacious
hall, well worthy of the uamo given
it Countless stalactites depend from
the ceiling, from the uoedlo points of
whicli, from everyone a single drop of
water, hangs and clings and glitters in
tho light liko a huge, solitaire dia
mond. The great ceiling to the
Queen's chamber, hung with its conut-
less stalactites with their glittering
points, reminds one of a lingo Arctic
grotto, thickly hung with snow-white
icicles. These stalactites have been
forming, slowly forming for countless
years, centuries iierhaps. Slowly,
steadily tho process goes on, each lit-
tlo drop forming at tho needle point,
then growing larger, clings desper
ately, glitteriug and siarkling the
while, more brilliantly than the rich-'
est diamond; desperately the little
drop clings to the stalactites' point
and at last with a final quiver, a final
sparkle, lets go its hold and dashes
against the point of the protruding
stalagmite below. D. II. S.

PLAN TO SETTLE OREGON.
The management of the Hnrrinian
lines hits jnst crfectcd the details of
tho largest colonization plan ever
attempted by a railroad iu tho east.
The organization of a colonization bu
reau, and the appointment of O. M.
McKinney to be general colonization
agent in charge of the bureau, with
headquarters iu Chicago, ' has been
announced. A largo sum has been
npproriated tocarry on the work which
is to ho 011 a scale hitherto nuuttcmpt-
ed. It is the purpose tnaprsiiut coloni
zation agents iu all the Eastern and
Middle West centers and to draw
largely from the population of Hie
Eastern states. The bureau will rep
resent tho Southern Pacific, the Union
Pacific, tho Oregon Short Line, and
the Oregon Railroad and Navigation
Co. It is thu pur)Hsn of the manage
ment of theso roads, through the coin
hiiied trallle department, to thorough
ly exploit, develop and si lt le Oregon

will bo given to the mineral, agricul
tural and tinilsT resources. It is slat
en there are many millions or unoccu
pied fertile lands in these states, and
that no other states have so brilliant
futures from a mineral standpoint.
The bureau with all the railroads buck
of it is going to juiy especial atten
tion to irrigation in the way of in

THE TIMBER SHARKS.
Indignation still continues hero on
the part of the miners, regarding the
wholesale manner in which timber
lauds, so called, aro being taken up by
The miners say that timlicr claims
are being tiled ou daily in Josephine
that are valuable mineral lauds. In
some cases it is stated there is scarce
ly enongh timber on the claim to
fence it, tho evident purpose being
to get the mineral land. Tho miners
have no objection to timber being tak
en np, but they believe that Hie
Easterners lire taking up much laud
and calling it timber, merely for the
value it will luivo from a mineral
standpoint in tho future.
The idea the miners have in view
is to solicit subscriptions and procure
funds to employ a eomiH'tcut judge
whose duty it will bo to examine all
lauds located iu the county, and if he
deems it more valuable for its miner
al than its timber, to enter a protest
ngaiust the issuing of lutcuts for such

expected from the controversy before
it is settled.

"THE OLD MAN."
There is a class of men who are sel
dom, if evor, appreciated at their trno
value. Iu this enlightened age they
are commonly called "Dad." It is
Dad that humps himself year in and
year out ou tho farm, in the olllco or
tho workshop, in order that his boy or
girl may go away to school, and op
en their return, that the boy may have
a fino horse and top buggy, and tho
girl a costly piano. It is Dad that
hustles nnd cultivates great calloused
knots on his hands and becomes stoop
shouldered iu order that his offspring
may revel iu luxury and tnako tarual
fools of themselves. His sons and
daughters have learned at his expense
to despise his old-fashioiied ways.
They secretly laugh at the stylo of
his coat and and tho shape of his bell
crowned hat. On Sunday when his
daughter has comiiany and he would
liko to sit iu the parlor and listen to
the music, ho is given in various ways
to understand that, iiis presence is not
desirable, and the poor old man goes
out into tho kitchen and stays the rest
of the afternoon. God help the son
and daughter who goes tutek ou Dad.
