Tell of ancient architects finishing their works on the tops
of columns as perfectly as on the lower and more visible parts
We tramped and clumb around all over it, and by and by found a good big cavern in the rock, most up to the top
on the side towards Illinois.
It was three storeys high, of proportions not vast, though considerable: a gentleman's manor-house, not a nobleman's seat: battlements round the top
gave it a picturesque look.
