I was told nut I could see the shore shaft, but ibov vould not let any body go down. 1 did jO down, and I saw the whole thing, "or liis privilege I am indebted to Mr. Rose, ne of the Board. Duiing- my journey bere were times when I doubled about ts being much of a privilege.. Mr. Rose ook me to a near nine o'clock at light. A sort of elevator filled it. and it s woiked by an engine, with a strong "re rope. They had been bringing up dirt, w hich is sold at ten cents a load. The two miners stopped on the plat- brm of the elevator. One was named Edward Jiverctt. lie inspected the brick foe the cityj and examines every Drick. The city keeps at least n the tunnel every moment to watch the srogress, and to guard against bad woik and dinger. For there is danger. Of coutsc Ihere is. Il U in they come ,o quicksand, or spn'ngs which rise up in he bottom of the Like. At that limo they had advanced about three quaitcis of mile. The waves oi Lake Michigan are over them. When steamboats pass thuy plainly hear the working of the engine and the paddle-wheels. The miners told me they were ready, and pointed lo the place on the platform where I was to stand. It was something like the pUtioun they hang folks, and a ropo was overhead, but foi another purpose. Then we st.u-tcd. Thp muion ivas swift easy.

Leading into the tunnel is a railroad track, and tlieie stood ono of the cars on which they haul brick, lime and dirt. Usually they have a mule, but theie was none thai time. One miner sat on the front of the cm hi.-, lamp in his haud. They gave me a lit- tlo bcsrd to sit on. I partly sat ami sijuit- ted on iho middle of the cai. The arch above was so low I had to stoop, or t-.iy hc.id would have touched. The other lain- er was to walk. He bent forwaul anrl pushed tho car. Then we stalled- Immediately a col'l blast e.Tme out of the tunnel. I almost icgrcitcd I had come, but I knew then was fun ahead, and I would not be fright- ened.

The car its echoes lol.lcd through the tunnel like a constant peal of thunder. On tho right side of iho wall, every five feet, the distance wa-i marked in bl.tck figures. At the upper turn of tue arch csieidcd a blaclv pipe, made of sheet iron, through which the en- gine drew the bad air out of the Not only is there bad air, but ihcy find inflammable gases. Once they took fire there was a great light through the tun- nel, and man was badly burned, but he still lives. Theje seemed no cud to ibis blayk pipe, to the black figures, nor to the tunnel, as we rolled through the damp air. It was the blackness of darkness be- foie, and -the same behind. The scene was like that in a sick dream, likea night- mare in which there is no relief and no change. Unless a man's duty lead him he can have no business here. Had I not to describe ihe place 1 would not have dreamed of going down. Ono can visit no other place in the world where he may be suddenly cut off from human help.
