THE BEAUTIES OF MISSOURI'S RE
MARKABLE MARBLE CAVE.
Subterranean 'Wonders That Are Unsur
passed Walla of Jaxper and Onyx.
Figures Cut in Stone That Sculptors
Can Scarcely Imitate.
In tbe deepest f justnesses of the mysteri
ous Ozark mountains, eighteen miles south
east jf this city, is whtit is perhaps the
greatest and mo-t wonderful natural for
mation in the world. The famous Mam
moth cave, of Kentucky, has long been
looked upon as the greatest marvel of the
kind in the known world, but its greatest
depth is only nine miles from the entrance.
Hidden away iu the Ozarks is a cavern
which extends over thirty miles and has
ramifications which, when fully explored,
ill undoubtedly show cavernous cham
bers with openings extending more than
Deep in the heart of Wilderness ridge,
the highest peak of that highest ridge of
the Ozark mountains, is Koai-k peak. On
the extreme summit of this elevated ieak
is an immense craterlike depression, the
sides of which extend almost jerpeudicu
larly down for a distance of tUM feet. In
the center of the bottom is a narrow slit
like opening. To reach this opening a
hundred or more steps have been cut in
the steep sides of the crater, anil then the
explorer sees at his feet a yawning abyss
extending down into deepest darkness.
Descent is made into this abysmal depth
by means of a series of rope ladders, and
going deeper and deeper nt last he finds
himself at the bottom. feet from the
entrance and on a level tiour, and can just
see daylight streamingthrough the open
ing far above him.
Now, as the eye liecomes accustomed to
the darkness and the feeble light of the
lurches penetrates dimly the recesses of
the cavern.it is found that the entrance
leads directly into a most magnificent
chamber niaguiliceiit both as to size and
decoration. This grand amphitheater is
almost circular in form. Too feet in diam
eter, while the ceiling, feet above, a
pears to be held in place by immense col
umns of onyx and marble. On all sides
are to be seen exquisite forms standing
against the immense walls as if carved by
the hand of au artist, and the imagination
can depict the varied forms of sculpture as
seen in the galleries of the Old World.
Some of these rival in massiveness and
splendor the heroic statues of the world,
while others liear all the delicacy of carv
ingof the flowers which adorn the entrance
of the cavern. Giant columns rear their
heads to the roof, their bases standing on
pedestals of incrusted marble and jasper.
Intertwining among these majestic col
umns can be seen delicate tendril-like
veinings which appear to lie some beauti
ful vine turned suddenly to stone. Athwart
the walls, crossing ami recrossing. can be
seen what at first glance appear to be
bunches of beautiful Ilowers, showing all
the varied tints of the rainbow, but which
examination shows to bedelicate incrusta
tions across the chalcedony and onyx,
forming tendrils and leaves as perfect as if
formed by the hand of nature on the flora
of the upiMT air.
liut there are more and grander beauties
to he seen in this gigantic cavern of the
Ozark. From the grand amphitheater
there extend live immense galleries, lead
ing to other chambers which equal and,
in some instances, surpass the first great
room at the foot of the descent. From an
opening off to one side there tricklesa little
stream of water as cold as if it came from
an icelx-rg. Following this to its source
the explorer reaches the springroom, the
walls of which are aa white as pure Jasper
can make them.
Here the temperature is constantly at 32
(legs. Fahrenheit, and the moisture which
is in the air of the larger rooms and pas
sageways condenses on the alabaster walls
and trickles constantly down in streams
which farm the rivulet which runs into
the grand amphitheater. This condensa
tion of itself is one of the most remark
able curiosities of the immense cavern. So
great is the supply that it is estimated
that twenty gallons per minute pour off
the walls of the small, barrel shaped niche
called the shower bathroom, and runs
down into the circular spring of youth.
This water is so pure thao it leaves no
deposit whatever and is really distilled by
nature just as it is by science above
ground. This shower bathroom and spring
room rivals in lieauty of design any cham
ber decorated by art in the known world.
Delicate veinings of onyx, alabaster,
chalcedony and beryl interlace in such pro
fusion on the marble wall and with such
delicate tracery that the whole presents a
picture of rarest design. Along the base
of the room runs a dado of reds and grays,
formed by the mottled and discolored
marbles which have received the drippings
of water washing over portions stained
Leading ofl in another direction from the
grand amphitheater is a lofty passageway,
with stuccoed roof and arched entrance.
Following this the throneroom is reached
and here, in solitude, is a grander throne
than was ever built by mau or designed by
human brain. The great white throne
stands alone in the middle of a magnifi
cent chamler with lofty ceiling full 00
feet above. From side to side the floor
measures 200 feet, while from end to end
it is 570 feet. The throne, a majestic ovate
stalagmite, stands iu the center, formed of
pure onyx and jasper, with markings of
chalcedony and beryl.
Standing thirty-six feet across and twenty-six
feet from front to back it rises in
grandeur to a height of sixty-live feet,
being t welve feet in diameter at the top.
An immense niche faces the entrance to
the room, and here is the imaginary seat
of some prehistoric deity. The throne is
hollow, and beneath the seat are three
beautiful rooms of alabaster whiteness.
Xo work of art can compare with it, and
words are inadequate to fully describe its
beauties and wonderful construction.
To the right of the immense throne rises
to the celling a pure white fluted pillar
about three feet in diameter, resting on a
hollow iedestal, the interior walls of
which are of onyx in colors of red, yellow
and white. From this room flows a small
stream fed from a spring which furnishes
pure ice cold water.
On all sides of the' throneroom the walls
are adorned with flowers anil vines carved
by nntuiwfroin the solid marble, while the
yellow, red and white stalagmites stand
on all sides and beautiful pendants hang
from the ceiling.
Many and various are the decorations
which adorn t his most magnificent of all
underground chambers, and yet there is
more to be found by following the various
passageways leading in all directions from
the central portion of the cavern. Rooms
spread out at the end of beautifully arched
passageways, and these are adorned with
the same colored and white carvings. One
passageway has been traced for a distance
of twelve miles in a southwesterly direc
tion. Sc. Louis Globe-Democrat.
