Two Veins of Water Struck in
Plnkerton Well on Big Plain
Drilling Continued to Incroaso Flow
For Plqntlful and Permanent
Supply of Good Water
N. 1L Pinkerton, who is haying.a woll
drilled at his ranch on Agency Plains,
Htruck water at tho surpriitily small
depth of 09 fect, last week. There arc
two small veins of the water, both
flowing a Htte less than 350 gallons in
21 hours. A teat of the strength of the
flow was iijale last Tuesday and it was
found that tho water came in at the
rate of about 14 gallons ior hour, which
Mr. Pinkeilon considers too small an
umotint of water to make a satisfactory
well, and- ho ho ordered tho drilling
resumed yesterday morn'mg. lie ex
peels to go deep enough to get a good
permanent How of water for all ranch
When drilling on this well was begun
all purp'WH. drilling will be continued
until aHiifllcient supply isstruck.
The well drilled by W. A. Magill dur
ing the past hummer demonstrated the
falsity of the old theory tliat it would he
neceHHary to sink tot the level of the
DewhuU. a thousand feet below tho
lovel of Agency Plains, to secure an
abundant supply of water, and the
experience hi tho Pinkertou well still
further disproves the theory. The
remdt will be that tho daye of water
hauling to Agency PlainB will soon bo a
thing of th) past, for a numbor of
ranchers in that district arc already
planning to drill wells in the near future.
