HYDRAULIC WELL BORING.
The following account of the
above process will' be read with in
terest by many of our readers. It
has been furnished us by Mr. Geo.
W. Stewart formerly Editor of the
Saturday I'rcss of this city
therefore has a
exactitude and illness for
The boring for artesian water on
Mr. William Stewart's place four
and a half miles west of Tulare, to
which frequent allusions have been
made in this paper can now be called
a success. The boring has been
done by Mr. John Thompson of
Stockton, by the use of steam and
hydraulic power, and is the first one
put down by this process in this
county, although apparatuses of the
same kind have been used success
fully for a number of years in San
Joaquin county. There has been
considerable speculation as .to the
success of the undertaking, and pro
phesies of failure have been fre
quently made, but it has been put
down with greater rapidity than any
other artesian well bored in this
county and without a mishap of any
kind. After the derrick was put up,
a surface well was bored by the same
process as the large one, to furnish
water for the engine and for washing
out the well, as will be explained. "
This was put down fifty feet on the
afternoon of Saturday the 19th inst.,
in an elevated piece of ground for
merly an ancient water course.
Sand ran in freely but this was
pumped out until a large stream of
clear water was obtained. On Mon
day, the 21st.,' about 10 A. M. bor
ing was commenced in the large
well. The auger is on the cud of u
long hollow pole down which a
stream of water is forced, and brings
lip the dirt as it is bored, two pieces
of hose fastened to an arrangement
on the top joint of the casing carry--ing
off the water and the sand, clay
or other substances brought to the
surface by it. They were troubled
very much with quick sand but made
good progress through it. For the
first 118 feet the boring was through
Hand with an occasional thin stratum
of clay. At that depth a clay stra
tum of eight feet was struck, and a
few others were encountered after,
but the sand held its owu to a depth
of about three hundred feet when
blue clay was struck, and yesterday
(Wednesday) morning at 7 A. M. a
small flow of water was obtained at
350 feet. This method of boring
facilitates work in many ways.
Everything is operated by steam,
and all heavy tools are raised and
lowered by the same power, the
quick sand is washed out of the well
very quickly and the casing may be
wished down at the same time the
sand is being got rid of.
The casing is forced down by
hydraulic pressure and the weight is
applied prependicularly and the ap
pliance is readily adjusted; the
auger docs not have to be taken out
until the well is completed, the pole
or rod being secured by a grab while
new joints of casing are being put
on. The above is a good showing
for eight days, and certainly the
working of the apparatus can be
, pronounced u success. Boring will
be continued until a good How is
obtained. When we visited the well
on Tuesday last everything was work
ing splendidly and we are informed
that rapid work is still being done.
Later : The wall was bored to a
depth of 500 feet and, although the
deepest in this immediate vicinity
the flow is not so large as the aver
age. Tulare City Daily Teleyrapt.

A good story tome's from Ber
muda with regard to the recent
visit of the Princess Louise to that
small sub-tropical Colony. It ap
pears that Her Royal Highness was
in the habit of taking exercise alone
in the immediate neighbourhood of
Her residence. l one of her walks
sue was anxious for a glass of water,
and asked a negro woman whom she
saw busily engaged in ironing u
shirt at the door of her cottage, to
get her oue. The old lady declined
to leave her work.1 Tho shirt (" a
boiled rag") was being sot up
against next morning, when she and
her husband were going somewhere
to have a look at tho ' Queen's
child." The Princess, determined
to have what she wanted, offered to
go on witli the ironing while the
coloured lady wept in search of the
water. This was agreed to Princess
Louise got the water and drank it,
then said who she was ; whereupon
the negress gathered up the shirt
which had thus been honoured with
the touch of Itoj'al hands, and de
clared that she," guessed her old
man" should never wear it, but
that it should be preserved as an
heirloom in the family. Her appre
ciation of lloyal etiquette does her
infinite credit. After all, it is quite
as genuine us that'of the'grandecs at
home -who for many generations
have considered' beds slept in or
chairs used' by RoyaUy. as acred.
