Home Matters

Messrs. Geo Emery and W. W. Coulter, range 66, town 124, section 19 and 30, Edmunds county, have dug wells on their claims to a depth of twenty-three and twenty-eight feet respectively, and get an abundant supply of clear, cold, water at a temperature of fourteen degrees above the freezing point. It is pronounced by all who have tasted it, to be second to none in the Territory. This will very materially add to the value of their claims, as good water is an indispensable article.
