jVeeording to the favorite legend
of this Indian trilx : lany, many
mofns ago, long before the paleface
appeared to disturb the peace of the
proud; natives; of the forest, when
the deer "were plentiful and th
brooks teemed with fish,, a band of
brave Klamaths, while on a hunting
espelition,-came suddenly tipon' a
huire cavern in .the moUntainlop.
The braves were struck dumb by its
remarkable walls and majestic pro
portions. With spirits subdued and
quaking: withnfear they stealthily
crept up to its edge and gazed into
its fathomless depths. They con
ceived it to be a lake, the awful
stillness of which was appalling,
something within told them the
Great Spirit dwelt there, and they
dared not remain. Bowed :with
reverence, they crept down the
mountain and camped far away. :
iBy some mysterious and unac
countable influence, one " young
brave, was induced to return. In
the dead of night, he climbetl up
the moonlit mountain to the very
brink of the precipice and started
his camp fie. Here he lay down to
commune ilrith the Great Spirit,
Sleep closed his eyes. Soon strange
voiees arose, from the vaters, wiertl
sounds filled - the air. - When he
awoke, thersun was high in the
heavens. - He arose .and joinod his
tribe far down the mountain. A
nisht, he came agam: an irreststi
ble power seemed to call him back.
A era in. he slept till morn ; each visit
seemed to increase the charm, The
voices were soothing to his spirit.
After many moons spent on' the
cliffs, he climbed down to the lakei
and bathed his- limbs in its waters
Frequently he saw mysterious be
ings elide to the surface; they re
sembled his brethren except they
lived in the water. Again and
again, he returned to. spend the
night and Lathe in the lase Mid

mysterious, waters gave him power
far greater than that possessed by
any other member of his tribe;
Others followed lum and sought
the influence of the magic water
Old warriors sent their sons to visit
this region and receive strength to
cone with their neighboring tribes
Their superstition and dread of the
spirits at hrst only allowed them

they ventured to the water s edge
