WELLS Greene Bros. & Co., the well drillers, have secured the contract for sinking an artesian well for the Riverside Fibre Co., at Appleton, Wis. At Miller, S. D., an extra strong artesian well was struck near St. Lawrence, in consequence of which the St Lawrence people are celebrating. Four artesian wells have been drilled at the foot of the hill by the pumping station at Boland Spring, Me. This makes 14 wells to supply the house with water for all purposes but drinking. An artesian well is being bored to supply the Dixie tannery at Bristol, Tenn. If the experiment proves successful the Diamond Ice Company will have a well bored for its water supply. The City Council of Lowell, Mass., has given the Water Board $50,000 to continue the driven wells experiment.
