BOW MDIG artesian Wells
h. Interesting and instructive tn
'nets the process whereby an artesian
M is constructed. The well
'thaVhav contract for locating an
!rtXan well for the 0R4N at the
I railroad yerds, have reached a debt of
1 150 feet having been in actual operation
pseven and one half days. They are still
in the gravel-aand ttratum wh'ch they
'entered at the surface.
WMe the various strata are pliable.
the f7pmg will be a ten inch side. The
drill is about six- inches in diameter and
when it has worked its way into the ground
some distance, a pan is let down which
scoops the mud. When this operation has
increased the depth of the hole abotins.
So slow is the descent of this casing,
thatjleach time the hammer falls, there
is no perceptible drop of the pipe. 'Should
the diggers encounter a hard stratum the
size of the casing will reduce conform
with the size of the hole drilled, for ths
casing cannot be forced thru rock. As-
cording to the contract, the well is only a
iittieTnore than one tenth finished.
Everything in my millinery store will
be sold at a reduced price for the next
thirty days. Mrs. J. R. Forrest
