The expenses of the wel so far have
been light. The actual drilling cost was
stated Friday afternoon by Mr. War
nock, of Alamogordo, who was the only
citizen from that place in attendance,
to be about $800. The material for the
drill stem, was stated to be about $1100
The coal for the drilling work, three
cars, has been donated by the South
western railway, which has also sup
plied 7S0 feet of casing.
Experience of -the Drillers.
Drilling work was first commenced
on Jan. 15, and proceeded, with but few
interruptions, until March 24, when the
1270 foot level was reached. Encoun
tering the hard "blue shale rock, it was
decided to pull the drill point up for
sharpening, and it was raised 40 feet.
At that juncture, the stay bolts, holding
the crown sheets in the boiler, blew
out, and the operations were necessar
ily suspended. The boiler was repaired
on March 28, and on March 29 an at
tempt was made to pull the drill stem
and point from the well. ,
By this time the quick sand had drift
ed to the 600 foot level, in around the
drill stem, aud the engine was not equal
to the task, the sand having formed
what is termed a "sand lock." Real
izing that the weight of the sand around
the drill stem wag too great to permit
Its being drawn out of the well, the
drilllers then installed a one and one
quarter inch pipe in the well outside
of the drill stem and began forcing the
sand packed up, using 200 pound wa
By April 14 the smd was reduced to
a 985 foot level, and a second attempt
was then made to pull the drill stem
and point from the well, but the stem
was pulled In two. 140 feet from the,
surface. It was joined by a fishing
spear and another attempt was made to
lift the point. The engine, however,
was not equal to the task.
By this time, the sand had again fill
ed the drill hole proper to the 5S6 level
and again the water pressure system
was installed to force the sand up on
the outside of the drill stem to the
surface. On Friday afternoon the un
obstructed passage down the drill hole
measured the same, 586 feet. "Work
was again commenced this morning.
The well to a depth of 650 feet, orig
inally measured nine incnes In diame
ter. For the first 150 feet the hole
was cased with eight inch pipe. From
the 650 foot level, the balance of the
hole was originally seven and one-half
The drill used was of the rotary style,
and this is also true of the inch and
one-quarter pipe down though which
the water Is forced by pressure to was
the sand out.
That the sand which has caused trou
ble in the well, drifted in "from a 560
foot level, is the opinion of E. A. Mayo,
notwithstanding the fact that the log
of the well, between the 2S5A and 598
feet levels, records gumbo only. Mr.
Mayo, however, asserts he was In

I i with TUBERCULOSIS rn
By WILL M. BOSS
Afflicted with tuberculosis, I went to El Paso in 1908, supposing that the
climate, alone, would cure me. It proved acostiy supposition. It was only
after making mahy costly mistakes, that I learned the way to health. That
others may profit by and avoid my experiences, I have endeavored, in this
book, to show YOU how you can carry into practice wherever you are the
methods that the cure depends on. Read it; your physician will endorse it.
