Huntingdon Republican: News

seems that Andrew Bullock had a dif

Memphis Appeal: Prof. Safford, of
Vanderbilt University, and for thirty I
years State geologist, passed through
Memphis a day or two ago and, we
understand, looked carefully iuto the
matter of the stratathrough which
our artesian wells are being bored,
and by his general knowledge of the
earth formations throughout the
State, he is able to figure out reliable
data; and after seeing the borings from
these wells he very freely confirms the
opiuions of the very best frieuds of
this system of water supply for Mem
phis. The professor says thia water
must come from at least seventy niileg
east of Memphis, as it could not get
under the strata of blue mud at a
point nearer than that, while in his
opinion the quantity to lie had only
depends iihii the number of wells
put down and the size of pumps used.
He practically gays it is equal to
pumpiug from a cistern knuwu to be
225 feet deep and possibly much
deeper, and in diameter rquul to the
