I the biggest in the world Are in j the Utah desert. Wonders of White Canyon. Three massive towering Arches Majestic in their rugged grandeur j Span the lonely picturesque Gorge far from the beaten paths of Man. Among the wonders of the West which tie government has taken in j Dor its care Are the remarkable natural j Bridges of Utah which Are so far As is known without a peer. In 1908these three Bridges the Caroline. Augusta Ami Edwin were set aside Asna tonal monuments and later certain caves and Springs near by were added to the reserved area. It is difficult to give an adequate j idea of these stupendous Arches and so far they have been seen by few persons for it is a trip of Days across ? the desert to reach them but accurate measurements have been taken Anil convey some notion of their size and shape. The popular Way of reaching these curiosities is from Bluff Utah where one can Ottwin a guide and out fit thence you proceed through dry washes old Stream Beds Ami Sage Cov ered mesas to the great Bridges which loom up in White can you far from the beaten path of Man. The White Canyon itself is Many Miles Long and the Bridges Spring from its Steep Light Buff Walls the three being within a distance of five Miles. They seem carved by titanic forces for the largest is 222 feet High and 65 feet thick at the top of the Arch. The Arch is 28 feet wide the Span is 261 feet and the height of the Span is 157 feet. The natural Bridge of Virginia is a baby in comparison with any of the three Utah formations. It is to be regretted that these wonderful Bridges Are not easier of Access. Figures give Little idea of their immensity Ana words but suggest their Beauty. The first account of them Given to the world was that of Horace j. Long who visited the Bridges in 1903. Long was an Engineer and prospecting in Utah. One Day he fell in with a cattle Man named Scorup. Who was familiar with Utah and in particular with the Region lying around the san Juan River. Scorup after some preliminary conversation. Said that he had seen some remarkable Bridges so immense and wonderful that he disliked to talk about them for fear he would be accused of manufacturing the Story. He added that though he had seen them in 1808 he had always desired to go Back and if Long would accompany him and take photographs he would guarantee to in guide the Engineer to the place. Accordingly the two men set out with pack horses and provisions and after a lonely trip through deserts and canyons and wide stretches where no animal was to be seen they descended into the Gorge of the White Canyon the sides of which Are filled with deserted Cliff dwellings. Two Days later they came to the wonderful Bridges the first of which of Pink Sandstone Scorup called Caroline in Honor of his Mother Long was fairly dazed at the Beauty and size of this natural wonder. The Pink Walls were streaked with delicate coloured lichens and stood out in bold Relief against a sky of Blue. More than this both men Felt that they were Gaz ing on one of the wonders of the world. They pushed rapidly Down the can Yon and came to another Arch More symmetrical and More Beautiful than in the District court for the territory of Alaska. Third division.

With a lightness Ana Grace Ana Charm of colouring that made it a splendid work of nature Long named this the Augusta after his wife and Man aged to get a fair photograph. The Arch was so Gigli that the Trees of California would seem dwarfed beside it. And the men took what measurements they could by climbing and clinging to the canyons sides. They found the cd win. Or Little Bridge several Miles Down the Canyon the Arch in reality of immense Dimen Sions. But Small in comparison with those that they had measured. All around these Bridges Are crags and strange formations Cave dwellings Springs and other objects of interest hut the Center of attraction is and will always he these three towering Arches which Span the White Canyon. Undoubtedly those Bridges Are of great seen Tizie interest not alone be cause they Are so far As known the largest natural Bridges in the world but because they Are extraordinary examples of Stream erosion. An ancient River probably carved these great Arches which May have been known to prehistoric dwellers of the desert West. New York Sun. The crowded late general Booth.
