wells blow out for severs! days, and equal
period whsa their air currents are re

blowing occurs with changes of the barom

audible when the wind la from the north

The rltliens of the region hare attempted
trsny explanations of the wells. Some have
reasoned that the blowing Is probably
due to the liberation of gas produced from
petroleum, and that as petroleum Is a nat
ural distillation from great coal fields,
there must be an abundant supply of the
latter mineral beneath the surface. Fort
unes bav been staked upon this deduction
and much time consumed In fruitless
search for cosl. Other have noticed tb
change of current which aome wells show
every twelve bour., morning and evening,
and bare thought that this regular oscilla
tion wa due to a tidal Action of the aheet

as a great aubterranean lake. The phe
nomena are most frequently attributed by
scientific observers to atmospheric pres

The material through which the. wells
ar driven may throw some light on their
peculiarities. In southesstern Nebraska a
layer of dense limestone about four Inches
thick lies beneath fifty to 100 feet of sub
soil. Below the limestone Is found water
bearing gravel. When the limestone cover

water under alight pressure rises about one
foot. The water-bearing layer I very por

air. As the air above and the air Inclosed
In the gravela below are alike subject to
the fluctuations of the barometer. It follow
that If the surface air is rendered less
dense the air below will pass out through
the well openings until equilibrium between
the rarer air and denser air Is established,
and the opposite effect will follow during
a period of high pressure. Still, thl ex
planation, plausible as It 1. hardly ac

eleven Cuban children deatined for Point
