The man appears to havo been rather an eccentric individual, and In order to prove to the world his belief In concrete aa a building material, be set about the construction of this great tower. Tbo building took many years to complete, but Is entirely of concrete, and by the Ume the final lay-r- s bad been placed bad reached an altitude of more than 300 feot. It is about 40 years since tbo tower was erected, and Its present condition Is certainly a Justification of the faith of the builder. Petersen left lnstruo-tloo- s that hla remains should be xlaood "nder the tower, and this was accordingly dune. Another desire, that the chamber at tho summit should contain a light, was defoatod by the firm o stand which Trinity house, tho authority, took on the matter.

God, this was lucki With now courage throbbing through my veins I groped my way back to tho table after flint and steel, and relit the candle fragment, shadowing tho flame with both palms as I returned to where the plank had been pressed asldo. However, I found such precaution unnecessary, as there was no perceptible draft through tho paasago now the opening was clear for tfce circulation of air. There had been two planks-th- ick and of hard wood composing the entrance to tho tunnel, but I found It Impossible to dislodge the second, and was compelled to squeeze my way through the narrow twelve-Incopening. This was a difficult task, as I was a man of somo weight, but once accomplished I found myself in a contracted passageway, not to exceed three feet In width, and perhaps Ave from floor to roof. Here It waa apparently as well preserved as when first constructed, probably a hundred years or moro ago, the sldo walls faced with stone, tho roof supported by roughly hewn oak beams. I was convinced there waa no great weight of earth resting upon these, and the tunnel, which I followed without difficulty, or the discovery of any serious obstruction, for fifty feet, inclined steadily upward, until, In my Judgment, It must have come within a very few feet of tho surface. Here there occurred a sharp turn to the right, and the excavation advanced almost upon a leveL Knowing nothing of the conformation above, or of tho location of buildings, I was obliged to press forward blindly, conserving tho faint light of the candle, and praying for a free passage. It waa an experience to test the nervee, the Intense stillness, the bare, gray walls, cold to the touch, the beams grazing my head, and upholding that mass of earth above, the Intense darkness before and behind, with only the flickering radius of yellow light barely Illuminating where I trod. Occasionally the wood creaked ominously, and bits of earth, Jarred by my passage, fell upon me In clods. Altogether It was an experience I have no desire to repeat, although I was In no actual danger for some distance. Old Mortimer bad built his tunnel well, and through all the years it bad held safely, except where water had soaked through, rotting tho Umbers. The candle was sputtering with a final effort to remain alight when I came to the first serious obstruction. I had barely time in which to mark the nature of the obstacle before the flame died in the socket, leaving me In a blackness so prof ound-I- t was like a weight For the moment I was practically paralyzed by fear, my muBcles limp, my limbs trembling. Yet to endeavor to push forward was no more to be dreaded than to attempt retracing my steps. In one way there was hope; In the other none. With groping fingers I verified the situation, as that brief glance ere the candle failed had revealed It A beam had fallen, letting down a mass of earth, but was wedged In such a way as to leave a small opening above tho floor, barely sufficient for n man to wiggle through. How far even this slight passage extended, or what worso obstruction lay hidden beyond was all conjecture. It was a mere chance In which I must risk life In hope of saving It I might become helpless!) wedged beneath the Umbers, or any movement might preeipitate upon n a mass of loosened earth. It was a horrid thought, the death of a burrowing rat; and I dare not let my mind dwell upon the dread possibility. Slowly, barely advancing an Inch at a Ume, I began the venture, my hands blindly groping for tho passage, the cold per splratlon bathing my body. The far ther I penetrated amid the debris, th greater became the terror domlnaUna. me, yet to draw back was ne . to impossible. The opening grew r ore contracted; I could scarcely force my sell forward, digging fingers and toes Into the hard earth floor, the obstructing tlmber scraping my body.
