WINGLESS VICTORY

path, which was smooth sand-the bed of some stream that once had issued through this cleft, I suppose-opened into a small amphitheater-after perhaps five or six loops and bends. The place was small, but up till then it was the most wonderful spot I'd ever seen.
" Talk of the Forty Thieves' cave in Ali Baba! All the rocks were of different colors; but that's simply to start with. The amazing thing was that they all seemed to be lit from within. They were partly translucent and were partly glowing with a queer radiance that seemed to flush out from their crystalline structure. Then I realized what, of course, it must be: They were fluorescing. The queer sky above must, for some reason, have been making these queer minerals-just as labradorite and other such do-send back a kind of light-echo, a sort of secondary radiation. But there nearly every rock seemed to have its own flush and pulse of color. You've never seen color until you've seen stuff like this. And that wasn't the end of the show which was being put on for me to gape at.
Out of these glowing rocks with their iridescent bloom and glow, and over them, flowed streams of steaming water in colors, waters like champagne, like burgundy, like chartreuse-purple, gold, amethyst. These cascades formed in fonts and pools; they tumbled over weirs which heaped up foam of every color and tint. The rivulets flowed off musically into culverts and grottoes, in the dusk of which they shone with a glowing phosphorescence.
" The floor of this domeless cave of wonder was a sand that sparkled like gold and diamond dust. Yet there was nothing harsh or garish about any of this close-packed splendor. The entire area was literally bathed in an opalescent mist.
