The only opportunity to see anything of the kind WATER OR OIL? Strange Phenomena that Attends the Search for Artesian Water. INTERNAL PRESSURE -DRIVES OUT TOOLS Well Filled From Below by Pres iure of Water, Oil or Gai—A Gusher Expected. A strange phenomena attends the boring for artesian water on the Yantis tract. The well fills from below as fast as the substance is taken out and internal pressure fills up the space and with such force as to drive up the tools. This phenomena was first encountered Mon day morning. Mr. Helm observed that when the drill was set to work after cleattin^up from an hours drilling that it did uot sink to the depth attained by about six feet. He began drilling but could make no progress, but began losing ground for the tools were being forced up from below. The sand bucket was low ered to ascertain the nature of the new obstacle, and on being raised showed a composite of lignite aud cretacious earth resembling in it constituency a gumbo muck. The drill was again lowered but by this time failed by so feet of reaching the depth obtained. Drill and sand buckets were kept at work but made no headway against the substance that was evidently being driven by subterranean force into the well from beneath. It rose in the well 90 feet and has remained stationary at that point and for two days Mr. Helm has been unable to gain a foot in the depth of the well, though the drill easily penetrates the substance and the sand bucket brings it to the surface, the hole is kept fall from the pressure below. The phenomena is pusxling, but seems best accounted for by the hypothesis that water, ges or Oil under heavy pres sure lies just beneath the strata that has been driven by pressure into the well. This gumbo pack acts as a cork to the bottle, which, when removed, will allow the fluid beneath to burst out at the sur face. The fact that the wet pack does not rise higher in the well than 90 feet can be accounted for by the theory that the pressure is dissipated at this point by allowing the fluid to escape in the st ratas of gravel. The fact that the substance is kept at the same height shows the pres ence of uniform pressure. It is likely that the process now is like drawing the cork from a bottle. Aa fast as the cork is cut off above by the drill and sand buckets the pressure pushes it up from below It is not unlikely that as the cork grows less the pressure will blow out the remaining portion and carry the tools out of the well with n gnshing over flow such as often marks the opening of artesian wells. ! There is now every indi cation that a gnshing well will soon be developed. Petition for Pardon. Thomas Heney, of Mullen, left for Moscow this morning after a week's visit in the city and county circulating a pe tition for the pardon of Paul Corcoran. Mr. Heney feels confident that when the petition is presented pardon will be granted tp Corcoran.
