Lewis the Leader candi date for Circuit Judge in this dis trict last county court day in his home town Springfield was as jubilant as a small boy with his first tin horn and put in a good portion of the day seeking congratulations from various and sundry neighbors andcounty men His exuberant pride in his achievement and irrepressible hilarity in displaying the evidence of his prowess forcibly reminded those who saw him of the mighty Jack Horner of undying a nusery fame who H sat in a corner eating a Christmas pie He put in his thumb and pulled out a plum and said What a good boy am 1 wonder Mr Lewis felt IINo and wished those who had known him long and well to rejoice with him he had actually succeeded in procuring a certi ficate of character signed by fIflcersthe bar of Grayson county that he really possessed some of the qualifications suited to a Circuit JudgeWhatever might have been the estimate among his lifelong ac uantances of his capabilities and peculiararities no one among them need now or hereafter presume to intimade th the is or has ever been impartial partisan or1rthatt impulse passion or prejudice or even fail to guess at the law on any question as it will be hereafter expounded by the Court of Appeals the sixteen Grayson county citizens after an experi ence with him on i dressparade for three weeks have settled all that and thejvoters of his home county and district must accept their verdict As the jury numbered not less lthan twentyfour the officers of court at least a half a dozen and the bar certainly not less than four we dont understand why he did not while he was about it get the names of the other half to the recommendation that pleased him and could not hurt them iteis to get up these petitions or recommendations i a tures to any kind of a paper that does not Containapromise to P VI money IS of a wag in one pf the great literary clubs O f London that he made a bet that he could within twentyfour hours get a hundred names to a petition for the hanging of the of the president of the club and he actually won the bet It would be cruel however ip condemn Mr Lewis for rejoicing so greatly at the unusual and un expected pleasure of having anybody testify to his judicial quali fications for he certainly could not have expected any f one nearer his home than Grayson county to have done so except the editor of the Leader who brought t Mm

forms and entered the cave pmThe = guides claimed that thej f cave was first entered in by a hunter named Hutchins in I pursuit of a wounded bear We passed through the iron gate into Broadway Ave In there we first came to the Natural Circle on the ceiling then to the saltpeter vats and wooden pipes placed there in 1812 by the miners who were making gunpowder for war In t this Ave you see heaps of stones which represent different socie ties schools and states thenwe go into Bridal Chamber where a we see the bridal altar where fifteencO1ple have been married We came Joa place where the water was dripping down from E the ceiling and is forming a rock I E shaped like a skull The guide E told us it was a mans skull One lady asked how he knew it was aI mariVskull He said because it 5 had its

stars and a meteor We then went back to the hotel it being 11 oclock in the night We left the hotel April 30 at 9 oclock a m and entered the cave again As my letter is get tingtoo lengthy I will mention only the most important scenes We went through Broadway to Dantes Gateway leading to lower regions into the Wooden BowlI room calledthis on finding wooden bowls there that were used by the Indians This room is as far down as they ever found any trace of Indians Then we went down the steps of time then we came to a place called Leopards Rug on account of theI stone floor being spotted a leopard We next came to Pen sacola Ave where we saw the Florida Piana which is a ledge of stone overhead which is shaped like the keyes on a piano and when you strike them they all have a different tone The next scenes are roses overhead in the rocks we then went to the Echo river got in a boat and road about a quarter of a mile on a river that is 350 feet from the earths surface In this chamber we saw Shake spheares face and gallery and white rabbits on the walls The ceiling varies in color one place looks like the snow clouds an other like the beautiful sunset We ate dinner in the river hall at 130 p m They use this as a dinning hall They can serve per haps 150 or two hundred people at one time I After dinner the guide showed us what is called the meat house because the rocks over head hang down and resemble pieces of meat From here we went to the Mammoth Dome which is 15 feet high In there we saw the Egyptian Ruins of Corinth Maidens hats and what they called molasses candy- Mammoth Dome is one of the grandest scenes of all the cave We next cam back through the Corkscrew and went back to the hotel arriving there about 3 p m We took supper at 6 p m and boarded the train
