The temperatoits of the Ana Rivet J
waters is 20 per cent or more above ;
the mean annual temperate re of the
region, iudicats that the springs rise
from del thi 100 feet or more below

less than this, it is probable that the ,

of these waters still remains unknown.
The geologists of the United States
geological survey who have been
studying the region rejected at onoe
the idea that the areas east and south
of the springs eould fnrnisb the water,
partly because cf the aridity of these
areas, and partly because the invntt
gatlons had revealed structural condi
tions that would tend to prevent the
circulation of water westward to the
point at which it issues. North and
west of the springs, however, Is
a mountainous region, not well known
geologically, bnt including au area
that is well timbered and baa rela

rise Sprague and Williamson rivers,
both streams of considerable volume.
It is probable that the surface of this
monnlaiu region preeeots areas of
porous rock capable of absorbing the
rain water that falls upon it, and
these areas are regard) d as the most
