But to return to the cave. -On Saturday after dinner, we donned; our costume..s, uiucli to the amusonmnt òf each other. Our drc89c8 were short, and mi'nu* hoops.

At S o’clock, I’.

I’lotverH, terns, vines .and motscs grow abundiùitìy, uitd hung ver'y gracefully down over our heads as we entered; hero and there the limb of an old tree bus fallen, and the trickliug of a few drops of watet giveß it the uppcaraiice of a water-full aiorethuu a oavo.
