Ahoul farm Wella,
The well on the farm are a great
source from which come many diseases
Nome well are never cleaned. When
dug they are carefully H,anlis1 over, the
bump made tight nnd nnug, with the
ground sloping away on all sides so as
to allow the surface water to flow from
the opening. There Is no well water
that is pure. Something depends on the
character of the soil. 1 f sandy, and the
wster will disappear quirkly from the
surface after a rain, the well will drain
the soil for a long distance around it,
and ttw consequence will lie that a large
portion of the With of tho soil will find
IU way into the well, although the
waUr may appear sparkling and bright.
It Is contended that the soil removes all
the Impurities from the wateri but this
depends upon whether thn soil, by
long-continued absorption, be not
already so thoroughly saturated with
impurities an to refuse to take up more.
That the soil does not remove all the
impurities, even from new ground where
a well has been recently dug, has been
demonstrated by saturating the surface
arth at a distance from the well with
kerosene oil, which gradually found It
way to the well (having been washed
down by the rains) and imparted its
odor to the water.
If the soil be of heavy clay tho danger
will be lessened, but on all poroun soil
the liability of pollution of the water Is
gri'fit. No manure heaps, privies, sinks
