Secrets Lie Within The Earth
"Tell me frankly what you saw in that chasm: I am sure it was something strange and terrible. Confide in me."
The engineer long endeavoured to evade my inquiries. But at last, he spoke.
"I will tell you all. A steady brilliant light. I left the cage and clambered down. As I drew nearer and nearer to the light, the chasm became wider, and at last I saw, to my unspeakable amaze, a broad level road at the bottom of the abyss, illumined as far as the eye could reach by what seemed artificial gas-lamps placed at regular intervals, as in the thoroughfare of a great city; and I heard confusedly at a distance a hum as of human voices. I know, of course, that no rival miners are at work in this district. Whose could be those voices? What human hands could have levelled that road and marshalled those lamps?"
"You will descend again?"
"I ought, yet I feel as if I durst not."
