T h i r t y years ago the cave was talked about and some venturesome s p i r i t s bad crawled a short distance within its c o n s t r u c t e d mouth and gullet, but no real e x p l o r a t i o n ever was u n d e r t a k e n so far as Is known. Recently A. F. Porter and Carl Slieel conceived the idea of building a boat in two s e c t i o n s and t r y i n g to get into the w a t e r s of t h e cavern, for it was known t h e r e was w a t e r in the cave ' because d u r i n g heavy downpours it lias gushed out of t h e e n t r a n c e in big s t r e a m s. Porter, Slieel, Earl Stewart and John Lougstrcet made t h e excursion. They spent four hours within the cave and rowed for an unknown distance. Carl Hermit/., " Huddy" Wells, Leon- I aril Ooltz, " Hiinny" Oehler and H. P.'. Auumdsoti at a l a t e r day the cave with hip rubber wilh torches. Then they wailed in t h e ley wa'er, using flashlights to find their way. The boys spent about an hour in tho cave and emerged wringing wel and almost numb from the waistline down. The water was over their boots in some p l a c e s . Thoy p e n e t r a t ed over 1,000 feet. The cave is twelve miles southeast of P e l ' o r a h and t h e r e Is talk of enlarging tho mouth of tho eavo and making it a resort.
