This Cave, as the guide's story goes, is the remains of a formally active geyser being at one time replete with grotesque stalactites, stalagmites, and other sub- terranean wonders. The visitor in the early days entered through a rough rocky entrance m door-way into a lonj dark gruesome tunnelind was conducted by the" Scottish Guide through a length of darkness and along its winding course whose walls were the bold rock worn away In" ages past .by the running water, until the cave is reached. But now one enters through a masnificcnt plate-glass 'double door into a .fine large rotunda supported by. fine pillars. From this, after registering in the hook placed on the-desk for the purpose .the tunnel proper is entered through another door. The bottom of.the tunnel is now of con- crete which covers the overflow from thi basin as it runs to the large outer pool. The tunnel is how lighted by electricity which is another of the up-to-date inno- vations. and top are, how- ever, still in the regular form, being rocky-and rough.
