VAST CAVES IN ENGLAND.
Scientific Investigation of Those in
the Mendip Hills.
"Spelaeology" is scientific cave
hunting. Thfre is a society for that
purpose with headquarters in Paris
which recently in-^stigated the caves
in the Mendip hills in England. These
caves are of vast extent, perforating
two masses of limestone, lying on
cither side of a core of old red sand-
stcne. forming the center of the Men-
'lips. Some are "swaiiet holes," ab-
sorbing rivers, others stalactite cav-
erns. One, called Wookey hole, marks
the emergence, la the form of the
river Axe, of two streams "swal-
lowed" some miles away. One of
these swallets is 500 feet deep. An-
other cave, called Swildon's hole, is
draped with wreaths and festoons of
pure white stalactite. Lamb's Lair,
on the northern side of the hills, is
the most magnificent stalactite cav-
ern in Great Britain; while adjoining
Wookey hole another chamber has
Just been found with 1,200 stalactite
pendants, all of dazzling whiteness.
The famous spring which gives its
name to the town of Wells is believed
to come through hidden caverns from
the higher parts of the Mendips.

OLDER THAN THE CHINESE.
Cliff Dweller* a Race That May Even
Antedate Far Cathay.
i Older even than China, the oldest j
' . listing nation, are the cliff dwellings1
I of southwestern United States, homes
of a race whose very name has per
'.shed from the earth. Explorers, puz-
zling through the Mancos and Casa
! Vtrde canyons of Arizona and New
i Mexico, have found th* houses of this
stiange people In the wildest and most
Inaccessible of the mountain sides.
, Did the cliff dwellers antedate the
pyramids of Egypt? Were they of
Mood relation to the early Inhabitants
i of the land where the Nile is god.
i Some students are prepared to an-
swer both questions affirmatively and
| to give what is to them abundant
j proof. The pottery from their long-
! wrecked homes suggests Egypt, and
1 the few inscriptions found have slm-
i ilar suggestions. Mummies, bodies
wrapped In cloth, feathers from the
i mi east of the turkey have been dug
! from lutrlal places among ti • cliffs,
and. In bone and hair much unlike tho
I Indian of to-day, there Is a hint of re-
•• inblance to a more Oriental type. If
'he cliff dwellers left any decendants,
. however remote, Ihry are doubtless
j the Mokl and Zunl Indians, who, re-
' -milling them In habit* and appear-
i unco, are their closest Kinsmen.
