A Suprised Engineer
Dei 11 big. N M. JulyiM. -IV IS.
Fuller. United States engineer
in charge of pumping investiga
tions, came to Doming equipped
among other things with a weir,
witli which to make accurate tests
of the wells in this valley. He
and H.M'haps many other persons
away from Deming thought likely
some of of our wells had been
greatly overrated, so he proposed
to satisfy his depart in nt of the
true cuacity of these wells.
The first well that lie tackled
with his instrument proved too
much for him. it was the Van
Sickle well, four miles e st of
Deming. liefore the engine got
speeded up 1,H."0 gallons Kr min
ute were going through the weir,
when a slight increase of speed
in the engine shot ont a sluice of
water that carried the weir oir
down into the ditch. The party
then came back to town and de
signed a special weir to meet the
tremendous enpireity of Mimbres
valley wells. M r. Fuller Is quot
ed as saying that the Deming
country is the biggest pumping
proposition in thu United SUites.
