hours of pleasant travel , ntul 3 ct it ia

two huniirctl of the citizuna of the
Qucou City have over soon it A
hundred people visited Niagara falls
to every ono who visits the oiulorful
cavern of Kentucky. There uro va
rious reasons for this. First , Nugnra
i& fprtunato in being well advertised ,
while Mainnioth cave , for some ren-
aon , Boldoin sees it naiuo in print.
Secondly , Niagara falls U muniged for
all the inoitoy it ia capable of bringing -
ing to its shrewd agents , \\hurcna
Mammoth ewe , until very recently ,
was under the control of non-
progresRivo ideas. Thinl , Niagara hus
ttncovorcd billionth the noonday sun ,
and distant view of its splendor can
alwiiya be had ; Mammoth C.ive is hid-
dcn in the darksome depths of tlio
earth , with nothing visible to the out
side world but its cavernoun mouth.
Fourthly , Niagara lies almost in the
direct line of travel between tlio great
centers of castorn and wea orn popu
lation , and is of comparatively tusj
access ; Mammoth C.xvo is situated in
a wild region of the south , nuar which
no great tide of travel llowa , and is
eight miles from the nearest railroad
station. And yet , in npito of oil this ,
the subterranean axpomtion of natural
wonders ii worth more than the time ,
trottblo and money it requires to sets it.
Before attempting to describe any
of thu wondrous sights of the u\vo it
might bo well ta briefly sot out a few
historical facts about it. Mammoth
cave ia situated in , or rather under
Edtnonson county , Ky. , the center of
the wildest section of the state. The
noted James brothers , it is said , have
several times been in hiding within
cannon shot of the place. There nio
over seven thousand aquavo miles ot
limestone formation in this section ,
and all of it is supposed to bu honey
combed by subterronean passages and
cavernous halls. The whole county
of Eilmuusoii is dotted witlisiuk-holca
and nearly four hundred cavern
mouths have been discovered , thougl
most of them give access to but voiy
small cavoj. Only ono entrance has
been discovered to Mammoth cave ; at
least , but ono has over been made
public. It is believed the guides could
tell of other means of entrance or
exit , but it is their business to keep
this laioweldge , if there bo such , to

land which rises 312 feet ubovo the
waters of Green river.
is at the end of a ravine back of the
Cave hotel , and 118 feet below the
building. The visitor noes do\vn a
winding path until ho arrives at the
place where thu ravine seems to have
runup against a precipitous blutT and
knocked a hugo hole in the hillside ,
The hole is the mouth of the cave. Il
is twenty-four feet in height and
thirty wide. A small stream of clear
water flows from between the rocks
above the opening and falls upon the
rocky bed below with pleasing oiFm.
At nearly every season of the year a
constant fog or bank of mist obscures
the entrance , caused by the meeting
of two atmospheres , ono of which is
colder than the other , and thus con
denscs the moisture in the air where
the meeting takes place. Upon the
day we entered the cave the tempera
ture inside and outside happened to
bo about tlio same , and the fog AV.I'
absent , something that rarely occurs
of the cave never varies. Until re
ccntly it was declared that the constani
temperature inside the cave , winter ,
spring , summer and .autumn , was 50 °
Fahrenheit. But very recent scientific
tific teats have shown that this measurement
uromont was marked five degrees too
high ; the temperature IB shown to bu
but 50o , and from that it never varies.
The atmosphere is very pure. Oxy
ijen and nitrogen boar the same ic-
lation to each other in the cave at-
inosphoro that they do in the air out'
side ; but there is much less caibonit
acid gas in the cave than is found n
the air we breathe. In the dryer
parts of the cavern the proportion ii
about l-f > 000th and near the rivers i
ia leas still. Not a trace of ammonia
has over bean found in the cave prop
or. The humidity of the atmosuhon
varies as you docond to the river and
lake regions. In the upper avenue
and chambers , upon the walls and
floors of which nitrate of lime is deposited
posited , there is a destitution of moisture
uro almost absolute. Hero aninia
matter mummifies instead of decayin
by putrefaction. A dead body lett ii

is said that tlio nimosphcro of the
cave ia the most exhilarating on the
face i f or in the earth. Fragile , delicate -
cato women have been known to travel
oil foot over ton , and oven twenty
miles of the rocky , rough passages in
the cave , experiencing little or no
fatigue , whereas they could not walk
one-third the distance in thu upon air.

Terrible Strnculo lu n Railroad
Car \Vitli n Desperado-
Detroit I'ost Deo. 0.
At 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon n
thrilling epiaodo occuired on the
Michigan Central in-bound express
train near Kalamazoo , nnd but for the
courage of a woman might have end
ed in a terrible tragedy. When the
train neared Pokagon a man , who had
been apparently engaged in reading a
newspaper , was seen to rise suddenly
in his seat , and turning to a poison
seemingly his companion , shouted in
loud tones. "You give mo your reveler
vol\or and lot mo go or I will brain
you ! " A desperate struggle instantly
ensued between the two men , nnd the
startled and now thmoughly fright
cnod passengers precipitately lied from
the car , with the exception of a plucky
little woman.
The man who uttered the exclama'
tion was Henry W. White , alias Bur
ton , a notorious stago-robbor , bandit ,
and desperado , en route to tlio Detroit
house of cornction. The individual
ho addrcssnd was United States Mnr
Blial P. P. Wilcox , of Denver , Col. ,
who had him in custody. The oxcla
matioii was instantly followed by the
prisoner bringing down on thootticer's
head with terrible force a pair of
handcuifi , which he had cunningly
picked from his wrists with a tooth
pick. Tlio ollicor was momentarily
stunned by the blow , but made a desperate -
perato resistance. Blow after blow
was rained on the ollicor's head bj
the prisoner with the handcuili
and then he made a success
ful effort to got the revolver ,
The oflioer shouted for help ,
but none came. The prisoner cocked
the revolver , held it against the elli
cor's breast , and pulled the trigger ,
but it failed to perform the work in
tended for it. A desperate struggl
for the possession of the revolver , a
six-shootei of 44-calibro , knoivn as i
bulldog , now took place on the par ;
of the oflicer. Now it was in his
hands snd then in that of tlio prison
or. The most mysterious thing about
the stiuglo is that , although each tried
to fire the revolver , it failed in cacl
caao to lospond. The tnuz/.lo of the
weapon while in the hands of the was thrust gainst the left
temple of the ollicor with such force
that the prints of it wore plainly discernible
corniblo when ho iiriived in Dotioit.
During the contest the lady , a Mrs.
Smithson , from Denver City , remain
ed in the car and labored heroically
to aid the oilicer. She threw her
arms about the dcaporapo's neck and
tried to hold his linnds. She remon
strated with him nnd tried to calm
his fury. Toward the close of the
struggle , the prisoner seeing ho could
not kill the ollicor nor got possession
of the keys to unlock the shackles 01
his foot , placed the mui/lc of the re
volver against his heart nnd again il
tcfusod to icspond. Finally the elli
cer grabbed the bell-rope and stopped
the train , A brnkeman , attracted bj
the struggle , had come inU.
the car , but was nfinid t <
touch thu prisoner. The ntruggl
was fortunately bi ought to n clos
by the opportune appearance of 0. F ,
Ohnpin , of Denver , from the forwnrt
car , who joined forces with the elli
cer. The two guards , whom the elli
ccr had brought with him , were in th "
car , smoking during th
struggle. Word finally reached then II
of the peril of their chief , und the , IIa IIy
came rushing to the rescue. Th a
prisoner was soon reduced to subjcc :
tion , and his hands pinioned bohin
his back. White did not hesitate ti
announce that he intended to kill Hi
ollicer , rob the passengers , and make
his escape to the north woods , lie
fluid ho was virtually a dead man when
once within the walls of tlio house of
Wilcox with his prisoner nriivod in
