Baron Nordenskjold, of Sweden,
believed fro')m his researches in
Spitzbergeni, that at horizontal crack
would generally be foutd to exist
inl all solid rocks at an illsignuificant
depth beneath tihe earth's surface.
Ile further believes stich cracks to
be formed from variations in tem
perature, and finds them in granite
rocks fron 90 to 12, feet below the
surface. They yield from 6oo to
2,(x)( quarts of water ant hour with
moderate pulpinlf'g. It tle gnciss
of this State we neither look for,
nor do we find, anly such horizontal
cracks, but fissures and fractures int
every directiont through the rock,
and it any inclination to tile sur
How to locate these fissures is
the oiie aid only problem to be
solved. This problem, while not
generally understood, if at all, evenl
by the professional well-borer, ad
mits of easy solution where the
rocks are exposed ; because their
character and position, the nature
and amoutil of the disturbance
which hats taken place in thei, can
readily be seen, even by the unl
trained observer. But where the
soil covers them to any con1id, r
ble depth, or where there are but
few rock exposures, as is frequently
tle case, it is often difiicult to de
termine whether or not to expect
to find fissures. It might appear
that a valley or hill side shall i
ways be chosen for the locatioi of
tile well. If all valleys atid hill
sides resulted from one and the
sate cause, viz., faulting, we
might reasonably expect fissures
and fractures to abound in the rocks
along tile line of tile fault, and that
a drill penetrating tie rock for a
fev hundred feet would, in all prob
ability, pass through one or more
fisGurcs carrying wvater. Valleys,
however, originate in several ways,
chiefly as follows: Valleys of ero
sion-formed by the softer parts of
the rock wearing awiay faster than
the harder; valleys formed by the
folding of the strala ; and valleys
resulting from dislocation of the
rocks, commonly known as fitilts.
Experience has showl that tile
margins of this last class of valleys
are good locations for artesian
wells. S. L. Powltm..
Case*~ of Poisoning
Hood's Barsaparila Drives the PoI
son from the System, Quiets
the Nerves, RelIeves Dyspepsa
" While in the army I was poisoned in
wardly with poison oak, and I did not get
well for 15 years. My blood bocame so
affected that I was taken with a hacking
cough, and I was thought to be going
into consumption. I took many different
medicines without avail, and finally re
solved to try Hood's Sarsaparilla. When
I had finished taking the first bottle the
pimples began to disappear from my
body, and after I had taken three bottles
I was well. I have also nuffered with ca
tarrh in the head and have been taking
Hood's Sarsaparilla for this trouble and
it helps me. Ini fact I take it for ali all
nmentst and believe it has no equal as a
blood purifier. It quiets the nerves and
gives refreshing sleep. It has relieved
me of dyspepsia and built me up." J. I.
