The commit tee appointed by the board of trustees to have a deep well bored at the cen tral power station met here today and tested the well being bored for them by the Artesian Well company, of Wil son. -.-.J-y ,' r t. ' The committee made a contract for a five hundred foot well, expecting that It would take that deep a well to furnfeh the needed. twentyfflve gal lons per minute, but they reserved the fright to stop whenever they thought they had all the water they wanted. The work began July 20 with Mr. C. R. Heater as foreman on tbe Job. The first eighty feet was made in a short time through soil and cased with eight inch well casing. From then on It was rock and more rock. At eighty-seven feet Mr. Heater figur ed that he had struck a seven gallon per mlnuto flow. At 141 feet he added to that immensely, so much so that the head of water all but destroyed tbe working capacity of his J, 500 pound sl'eel drill. He worked for two days on the adamantine formation without making but about two Itet and asked that the committee test the well. This request was granted. Messrs. J. Beale Johnson, chairman, Raleigh; R. M. Morrow, Burlington, and H. W. Wellons, Elon College, the committee of the college on the deep well, accordingly met here today and after a fair test found that we hare a capacity of from fifty to one hundred and twelve gallons per minute In the present well. This seems to be all the water we need at present to sup ply the college plant and' the people of the village, and bo the Artesian Well company was released from the further prosecution, of its contract rt this time. The completion of this well marks an era In the value of the college heat, light and water plants. The water win be analyzed at once and if found suitable, as it no doubt wSl, will be used not only for sewerage but also for drinking. It has a pleasant taste and seems absolutely pure. Arrangements are also being made to put hot water from the central power station Into all the college buildings instead of having each build ing heat its own water separately. A CURIOUS WILL. It Forces a Happy Family Under Pe culiar Conditions. An extraordinary will has been left by an elderly unmarried lady who died in Vienna. Her property, amount ing to about 50,000 pounds, is ap pointed to be divided between her three nephews, now aged 24, 27 and 29, and her three nieces, 19, 21 and 22,, in equal parts on the following conditions: , ' . The six nephews and nieces must all live in the house formerly inhabit ed by their aunt, with the executor, a lawyer, whose business It will be to see that the conditions of the will are strictly observed. None of the neph ews Is to marry before reaching his fortieth year or the nieces before their thirtieth, under the penalty that tbe share of the one so marrying will be divided among the others. Further, the six legatees are admon 'shed never to quarrel among them selves. If one should do so persistent ly the executor is empowered to turn him or her out of the house and divide the share as in the case of marriage. The executor is himself forbidden to marry or to reside elsewhere than in the house with the legatees as 'ong as he holds bis oilice, to which handsome remuneration Is attached. The old maid Is raid to have made this peculiar will because her neph ews and nieces continually worried her during ber life by asking her to give them money to enable tbera to marry, requests she always refused.
