Mason City Is having Homo experience in tlio making of a city well, though not tho same as that of Algona. While ours is loo shallow theirs is too deep. Tho Republican of that town says: The artesian well question bus been solved. On Saturday hist tho council concluded to plug up tho present well at a depth of 050 foot, and start tho former How, and also to put down another well a short distance from tho old well, to the < same depth, and thereby increase tlio How. Tho old well has now boon plugged up at tho abovo mentioned doptn, and a flow of 80 gallons u inlnuto is running. From tho examination of u geologist it was estimated that u now well of the sumo diameter will increuRo tho suppjy about throo-fourths, which will make) a total How of artesian water of about 1MO gallons per minute. This, in add Mon to tho How from the springs, which \at low water murk is about 70 gullons p;pr minute, will make a grand total of about 210 gallons per minute, which is about 70 or 80 gallons more than is used by tho water system at any time of tho year, Tho council havo undoubtedly adopted u wiKo course, as it is now reasonably certain that the supply will bo amply sulllcient without expending a vast amount of money in trying aiV experiment of boring deep Into tho earth in a search for water. In case a How wub struck at a great depth, it would iu all probability bo exhausted before it reached tho surface by tho many crevices in tho rock which it strikes. It is also sate to say that orook water will not bo used through tho mains next summer as was tho case last. The New Meat Market. Auctioneering Done.
