It was incredible to see. But something was wrong. I could smell a very powerful odor. I knew right away that the cavern was filled with a dangerous gas that miners call fire damp. If we had gone through the cavern with a torch rather than the Ruhmkorf lanterns, our journey would have ended in a terrible explosion. It was evening as we still journeyed through this wondrous coal mine. My uncle grew impatient that our road continued to move in a horizontal direction. The darkness ahead and behind made it impossible to see the true 37 length of the gallery.
It was a curious matter that I could not understand. 30 6 Deeper Into the Earth We resumed our journey at six o’clock in the morning the next day. It was Tuesday, July second. We continued to follow the natural pathway made of lava. I was surprised and glad that it was as easy a walk down as if we were going down stairs in an old German house. Hans had walked farther ahead. After six hours, we found that Hans had stopped suddenly. We were standing in the center of four narrow tunnels. My uncle quickly made up his mind and pointed to the eastern tunnel.

My uncle bore them like a man who was wrong. Hans moved forward with his usual quiet character. I did nothing but complain and despair. My only consolation was that such defeat would probably stop our journey. As I feared from the beginning, our water supply ran out on our first day’s march. The temperature was stifling and I was so exhausted that several times I almost fell.
