A ldr. Edward Inser was passing the foot of llount

Sbasta in the train. Sudctenly he eew tbe whole south-

of extraordinary brillience. Iatert Ienser deternined
to investigate the origia of this unusual Ligbt. He
went throug.h enall towns in tbe area of Shaeta and
began asklng questions.

Icnser relates that officials and ranchers spoke

freely of a secret comnunity living i.n or on llount
