Issue 2 and Volume 20.

WELLS At Dallas, Ore., a fine flow has been struck at a depth of 115 feet, and the water rose to within nine feet of the surface. A powerful steam pump was attached to the well, and was kept pumping steadily for an hour, throwing a 2-inch stream of water continuously for that time, without perceptibly lowering the water in the well. The water is pure, cool, and clear, containing no foreign substance or mineral taste. A flow of water has been struck in the well sunk behind the S. M. Stephenson hotel at Stephenson, Mich., at a depth of 460 feet. The water is clear and cold and agreeable to the taste. At Dover, Mass., a well is being driven at the pumping station near the one driven last fall. A depth of over too feet has been reached.
