Except the railroad feature, there
nothing so very unusual in the forma
vion of a new sink; one was formed
year or so ago about a mile from the
sit of the accident, and close by the
same railroad, but there was no partic
ular publicity given to the fact. Un
less the formation of a new sink causes
some particular acoidont or incon
venience. It is only mentioned as a new
curiosity might be something to look
at if you are going that way.
Alachua county probably has a larger
number of these sink holes than any
oilier county in the state,
omeof these sinks have water
thorn, some are dry, and some are forty
fe-.it in depth, and bearing orange trees
rmvt on the sloping sides.
AH efforts to find natural causes for
these sinks have failed to account for
their existence, snys a correspondent
or the bavannah fiows.
The numerous "recent discoveries in
some western states, In Central Amer
ica and in Mexico of the remains of the
dwellings of a people who lived be
lu'uth the surface of the earth suggCBt
the possibility that these Florida sinks
are the breaking-in of the roots of
(hambore formed by a race of people
who, m the long ago, occupied r lorida.
That subterranean chambers and
passage-ways exist in Florida is well
known, but how they wore formed and
for what purpose I have never seen
even suggested in any work on the sub
The natural wells all have an artifl
cial appearance. They are all entrances
to tunnels in which water runs. Per
sous have often entered one and come
oat by another. I have heard it claimed
thut these natural wells are the open
air shafts to subterranean roodwnvs

some places. I have been told of a
large subterranean chamber near Arch'
iron the walls of which are picture

Inve made some very strange discov
eries regarding these ( lorida sinks.
They have found that, like the numer
v lW other ancient works of Florida of
winch I have written, Buch of these
sinks as they have examined nil bear
the same entrmcers marks (attrai
iKxiies placed in tho ground), by which
t.ie outlines of the original work ci
be traced, und also the connecting pas
s tges; and this has led to the further
uiicovery that the same lines are nuiw
.onerous in olaces vchcre then' m-e no
signs of sinks or natural wells to ho
A deeided similarity exists between
many ancient works found in Aincrlcitn
and Kgyptian work. There is no pood
reason vhy we should uot tak wisnt is
known ox Egypt to at least saff 'st the
tunu or purpose of the unkLown in
Aiaerica. In F.gypt and Muruouo, I am
imunned, the excess of gruiu crois is
placed in chambers in the ground, the
lii'nnber in closed, and all vuiibl-j traces
'.ii its existence are destroyed. In time
?f need the eaid or sheile finds the
.:. nimher by use of the at mil el lco, and
...ms a famine is provided against.
May not some of our numerous large
sinks represent similar large granaries
or more chambers?
She Bcene of the accident on the
J'lorida Southern railway is on the
tugc of Payne's prairie, where twenty
thousand acres of rich land might
yiuiu grain enough to require an im
mense storage capacity. The spot is
c entrally situated for water transporta
tion oi the crop across the prairie by
its central drainage canal, and is easilv
accessible from a .region where there
ure no large prairies to cultivate.
Aear Oainesvillo and in the city
there are many places where it is often
noticed that where horses trot over
them a hollow sound comes from the
ground. I have traced on some of
tlicufapote the very same lines that are
found at the sinks. At Oeoia, Iade
City, Tampa and Port Tamnn i;i'v
have found the same lines, anil 1 have
been told of many other places where
thc&t- lines have been traced by gentle
men interested in the sume line of in-
litaMminr; from the lines found at
tho sinks, wells and tunnels that are
known, the same lines being found
where no sink or well now exists, the
