The lake Is uino miles wide ami seventeen long and within the memory of man was not entirely roofed over by tbo salt dc posit. Originally evaporation played the most prominent part in coating tlio lake over with salt, but at the present time tho salt Fprlngs which surround it are adding fast to the thickness of tho crust In tho long ago rapid evaporation of tho lake's waters left great salt crys tals floating on the surface. In courso of time these caked together. Thus Uiu waters were dually entirely covered. In 1878 tho lake found an underground outlet into the river Obi, which low ercd its surface about three feet The salt crust wbh bo thick, however, that it retained Its old level and now pre sents the curious spectaclo of a salt roofed lake. Tho salt coat Increases six Inches In thickness every year. The many islands with which tho lako is studded are said to act as braces and to help keep tho arched salt crust in position.
