He decided to improve this tract by putting down an artesian well. Not ,- expecting to find a flow af less than 1000 feet, the average depth of the flowing wells in the county, he hired an expert artesian well man and started the work. At the depth of only 160 feet the strongest flow over found in the county was struck, and the well is now gushing forth at the rate of 65 gallons a minute, through an inch and a quarter pipe, against an average of 3( gallons from the same sized pipe TUEBDAY, MAY 22, I** in other wells of that section.
