An Interesting Letter from
Judge J. H. Newton.
ED. SENTINEL:-I left Louis
ville, Ky., on the 26th ult. Lou
isville is on the Ohio river;
population 225,000. Came on
,he L. & N. R. R. to Elizabeth
bown, and transferred to a
ranch railroad and vi ent 10
iles to Hodgensville, county
eat of Laru. Small place: popu
ation 1,000.
After attending church at
odgensville on the 29th ult.,
walked out three miles to the
Log Cabin Farm, where Pres
.dent Abraham Lincoln was
born. Collier & Co., publishers
>f New York, bought the Lin
ohi farm, which ,was sold for
axes, and by public' contribu
ion, by people of all America,
rected a memorial house on the
ite of the log cabin. You enter
;he grounds to the hall through
t gate, and go 300 yards on a
ravel road out into the farm.
md come to a small park, in a
at place, about'300 yards from
ihe hall. The latter is on a
;mall hill, reached from the
>ark by granite steps, 30 feet
wide.. The hall or house is
)uilt over and around the log
,abin, and entirely encloses it
)y being 36 feet wide, 40 feet
ong and about 35 high. It is
)uilt of granite, and four gran
te colonial columns support the
ront porch. The hall resembles
t court-house more than a
[welling. It is not designed to
e used for the latter, however.
:t cost $100,000. A family reside
>n the place in a neat log house,
laubed with mud. President
Roosevelt laid the corner-stone
>f the hall about three years
jgo; President Taft will dedi
ate it on the 9th inst.
Coming on toward Nashville
stopped at Glasgow Junction,
y., and went out on the Mam
noth Cave R. R. eight miles to
fammoth Cave, one of the
;even wonders of the world.
_ -here is a very large old hotel
bout 300 yards from the cave.
Uanguage is inadequate to at
~empt a description of the cave.
[t is grand and wonderful. It
ust be seen to be appreciated.
rhe entrance is on an incline of
about 40 degrees. The sides
mnd overhead are rock (lime)
mnd the opening is from 20 to 40
feet wide, and from 4 to 200 feet
igh. There are four routes
, 2, 3, 4. It takes four hours
: make one of these routes.
)ne man, two ladies, (a dog),
he guide and myself took route
No. 1. The guide hands you a
antern, for it is very dark in
he cave. You go down grad
tally till you reach 350 feet below
bhe surface. Following are the
hief points of interest on route
No. 1, which is three miles long:
"Mammoth Dome," i" Cork
screw," "Fat Man's Misery,"
i narrow place. I doubt if T. D.
E~arris or Mr. Rampey could
make it. Echo river, at the bot
om of the cave, you get into a
row-boat and ride a short dis
;ance. The reverberation here
is charming. We sang "Nearer
Ky God to Thee." The echo
yan be heard for two or three
minutes. Qverhead is arch
shaped, and the eddy water in
the river makes the resound.
here are 'blind white fish in
this river. Next points of inter
ast are the "Grecian Bend."
'Bottomless Pit," the "Devil's
ounding Board," "Indian's
Ball Grounds," "Vanderbilt's
Faculty" and "Students' Hall."
The theory as to the cause of
this rock cave is that at some
age of the world the cave was a
river, cutting through the cal
areous rock, and thus made
the river.
This place is visited by people
of Europe, and strange to say,
many people who live within
Four and.twenty miles of it have
never been there.
