Tucumcari, N. M., Oct. 13. The Pro
gressive society of San Jon, east of this
city, on the Tucumcari & Memphis rail
road, has sent a delegation to communi
cate with the railroad officials to pro

deep well that was being put down at

abandoned by the company because of
the reports to the effect that salt wa

company. It is expected that a fine
flow of artesian water will yet be de
veloped, as the water is now standing
but 40 feet from the surface of the
hole. The well gang is now beginning
