W. Baughman Saturday evening to discuss the matter of drilling for artesian water here. Expert well drillers from the eastern part of state were here to investigate the matter, but no agreement between them and local men was reached, Artesian wells are coming closer to us every day, and those districts which have them are enjoying con siderable prosperity now. It is said that there were 500 visitors in Richfield last week, and the town there is on the boom. It is much the same as other points where they have drilled artesian wells. If we are to retain the title of "Capitol of the Southwest." it will be up to us pretty soon to do something along this line, and it aepearsnow, that a definite step towards securing a well will be made in the near future. A letter by J. W. Baughman follows: Neosho Falls, Ks., Apr. 24, '11. Mr. John Baughman, Liberal, Ks. Dear Sir: I am anxious to get started to drilling in your territory, therefore will make you people the following proposition: We will'drill a well to a depth of 2,000 feet. The first 1,000 feet for $2.00 per ft., and the balance for $3.00 per ft. You to furnish all necessary casing. If artesian water is found at less than 1,000 feet, we are to be paid for 1,000 feet, and you guarantee us two more wells within a radius of three miles of town. Let us hear from you by return mail it possible. Yours truly, Sulivanft Schnir. Wednesday Meeting The Christian Ladies' Missionary Society will meet with Mrs. E. J.
