Atlanta's Artesian Pump.
Atlanta, Ga., January 25.—Tbe new 6-inch pump
the great arteniau well has come. Col. Eanm’s
large rubber boots were seen dangling around the
machine to-day. He is engaged in a frantic strug
gle to get it in place. This is the first time in the
history of tbe world that a 6-inch pump haa beeu
employed to squeeze the water out of an artesian
well. In most instances any well will give up wa
ter if worked by a pump. It ia understood, how-
fiver, that Colonel Damn and the city council, har
ing spent $24,u0i> vu tue »< U**tu Woil.tR> called, and
busted, are determined to call in the services of an
expensive six-inch pump, just to make the water
flow anyhow. Atlanta wants the world to know
that when tier artesian well ought to flow and wont
flow, ahe’ll make it flow—if she has to retain the
services of Colonel Baum’s rubber boots and a
brand new alx-inch pump to do It. ButO, Conscript

Our Mica IkposlU
Atlanta, January 23.—The mica beds of Georgia
are worthy far more attention than they have re
ceived. The mica of thia State is exceptionally fine.
As I learn from Mr. McCutcheon, the geologist
agricultural department the beds
have not been worked at all in com
mensuration with their commercial value. The
transportation of mica in comparison to its bulk
value, is comparatively cheap; for It ia worth from
20 cents to $10 per pound, according to the size
sheets in which it is found. The average aheeta
here are superior. The belt of mica reaches from
Carroll county in a northeast direction to Macon
county. Roberson and a few other isolated coun
ties, have valuable deposits of mica. Elbert and
the adjoining counties southeast, have good de

that Dr. Joseph LeContc, tho distinguished

California, had predicted, thirty your* nqo,
tbe impracticability of finding water by
boring artesian wells in Southwest Geor
gia, und that Captain John Fort, without
any pretensions to scientific attainments,
had proved the contrary, and thus estab

sense to the deductions of science.
Dr. LcContc stands in the front rank of
scientists in this or any other country, and
from an answer to n letter I addressed to
him several weeka aince, I will make the
‘T have never, to my knowledge, been
consulted or asked an opinion; nor have ~
given an opinion of any kind concerning
the probability of getting artesian water in
Southwest Georgia, much less tho absnrd

In Dr. Le Contis' work, "The Elements
of Geology,” trader the head of Artesian
Wells, page 09, wo find as follows: "Thus
there is on oil coasts a constant flowing of
water, both superficial and subterranean,
into the sea. Their relative amount it'
impossible to determine. Much depends
upon the configuration of tho country and
the nature of the strata. Tha heavy hydro
static pressure to which subterranean water
is subjected, especially in elevated countries,
brings a larger portion of it to the snrface
as springs. Bnt, in limestone regions, (thia
rock being affected with freauent and large
fissures, and open subterranean paaaagea,
as will be hereafter explained), large sub
terranean rivers often exist, and these, even
after coming to the surface, are often re-
engulfed, and finally reach the sea by sub
terranean passages. The largest springs,
therefore, generally occur In limestone
It ia well know that nearly the whole of
southwest Georgia rests upon a bed of lime
stone as described in tha above extract*,
and, as numerous experiment* have proved,
the allegation made against Mr. Le Conte's
knowledge of tbo geological features of that
portion ia simply preposterous and not
worthy of a moment a consideration. It is
to be hoped, therefore, that the silly state

Miss Elizabeth M. Belt, a pretty
woman, who says the is a type writer at
Union Square, was brought to the Tombs
yesterday by Detective Heidelberg, and Ja
cob It. Bnipkeril of Petuvian fame came in
and sat beside her; Alfred McK. Post, who
lives at the B&rrett Houso and says he is an
adjuster, accuses her of grand larcony. Ho
says that on June 3 last he instructed Miss
Belt to take Mrs. Post’s $500 sealskin clonk,
with beaver fur trimmings, to Simp
son's pawn shop and borrow $60 on it.
This Miss Belt did, and gave Mr. Post
tbe $60 and kept the pawn ticket Cold
weather enme on again, and Mr. Post says
ho osked Miss Belt for tho pawn ticket He
says that sho kept putting him off until he
determined upon having her arrested. Miss
Belt says that Mr. Post nover asked her for
tbe pawn ticket She produced it in court.
Detective Heidelberg says the girl has a
counter claim for $312 against Mr. Post.
Miss Belt was called up to Clerk McGow
an's desk to undergo the formal examina
tion to which every prisoner is submitted.
Miss Belt tried to answer the questions, but
wept instead. The venerable Mr. Shipbetd
lushed up to her side and said to Mr. Mc-
"I would thank you if you' would defer
thia examination for jtut a little."
“You ain’t got anything to say here. You
ain't this lady’s counsel. All wo want is to
take her formal examination," Detective
“I'm not her attorney," Mr. Shipherd
■aid, “but I'm Miss Belt's counsel und ad
viser in a variety of matters.”
“He has known me all my life,” Miss
Belt explained, tbo tears welling np ngain
in her eyes.
Shipherd made way for Miss Belt to go
hack to her seat, Heidelberg went over
and brought her back, insisting tlmt she
mnst tell her name and birthplace and
residence and occupation. She did, and
then she wns paroled into the custody of
her counsel, Junes H. Elliott, who hod
come in. Mr. Shipherd said to Justice
“No honester lady liras in this city, your
honor. I havo known her and her family

A YVORM IN HER LUNG.
inary 25.—The Repub-
can members of the Ohio Senate contin
ued in session from 10 o'clock this morn
ing, and it was the intention to have ad
journed at 4 p. m. unless the Democrats
put in an appearance. As the latter hour
approached and it had been lonrncil tlmt a
majority of the members would be thero
on time, the Senate chamber filled up rap
idly. Half on hour before the joint meet
ing all available spaco had been appropri
ated. Among tbe spectators were a large
number of local politioians of both parties,
each ono claiming that the
other had the boll packed for
emergeney. There was plenty
of anxiety and any number who were ready
to fight at a moment's warning. The ser
geant-at-arms took advantage of the situ
ation. before the arrival of the Democratic
members to dear the floor. As the major
ity members filed in they were greeted with
applause by the Republicans, who apparent
ly construed their presence to be an admis
sion of defeat. The sergeant-at-arms soon
quieted the demonstration and the tactics
of Friday afternoon were proeeeded with.
The cell of the Scnato showed all members
present, and a motion to dispense with far
ther proceedings under the call would not
be entertained by tbo clinlr, he
holding the call had exhausted
itself by the presence of all
members. Over an hour wits spent in
discussing an appeal from his decision,
which was afterwards withdrawn, and the
chair allowed tho motion to dispense with
further proceedings to he voted upon.
There was no apparent point to be gained
either way on a contest over this motion.
In the flood of suhseqnent motions and
appeals which followed, the Republican*
were insisting upon the order of the day
and endeavoring to get the oontest cases
before the Senate, while tbe Democrats
were engaged in on effort to get before the
body's resolution which had been agreed
upon in caucus, proposing the appoinment
f a Gommittecjto consider tbe constitutional
and legal relations existing between the
Senate and its presiding officer. A Repub
lican Senator had been recognized, and
was about to report the trial of the con
test case when a motion was mode on the
Democratic aide to adjourn. The chair
held thia and several other motions of a
dillatory nature not to be in order.' Mr.
Pavey, Republican, yielded tbe floor to Mr.
Cable, Democrat, for n question of
privilege, and tho member was
proceeding to state hit question
and making the Democratic caucus resolu
tion a part of the same, but the choir held
that nothing waa in order except rules in
contest cases. The Democrats being una
ble to get their resolution before the Senate,
a final motion was mode to adjourn, and a
ilet.niiid wns mode by.the l)‘u that
the clerk proceed with the fall call. Tbe
President St first endeavored to drown the
voice of the clerk with his gavel, bnt he
finally become quiet, and the roll was called.
Twenty-elx members voting for ad
journment, the Democratic members
rose from their seats and walked
out while the elerk banded the roll to the
President to be announced. That official
tore the roll in several pieces and threw it
on the floor, while the orowd surged in
front of tha railings and the grentost con
fusion and violent demonstration prevailed.
The clerks all left their places, and as soon
aa partial order conld be restored, the
President read the rules himself, which bod
been offered by Mr. Pavey, with one
of tho senators at the clerk’s desk.
The Republican minority voted

dayn ago, Mr. Smith handed bis daughter Ethel

covered a peculiar looking worm at tbe bottom of
the mug. Her narrow eecape led a physician of
thin county to relate in the Elberton Leader the
following actual occurrence:
During the yeer 1857 or 1858 one of my neighbors
bad a negro woman taken sick. Aa be wae a man
who read, observed and thought, be rarely ever
called in a pbyiician to treat an ordinary disease

been nick about a week, and all the time Buffering
tbe most excruciating pain and referring it to
hrr hip joint, and for aoveral days her cries bad
beau almost incessant. Blisters *ad been applied,
and the naual constitutional treatment for acute
disease* of the hip Joint, bnt to no purpose. I will
never forget tbe unspeakable agony expressed in
her countenance. Her breathing was hurried.
Her cries feeble, yet heartrending. An examina
tion revealed no aoreucae or swelling about the blp,
and it/ waa evident that she ha d mialocatod the
pain. Auscultation and percussion abowed that
there wae an occlnaion of the air-cells
throughout tbe right lung. Bbe died
that night An autopsy revealed
neit day no trace of di«ease in thi hip, bnt exhib
ited a worm one and three-quarter inches long in
hrr lung. It was white and flat with a black head,
reaembling cloeely the common wood sawyer. Much
worms 1 have seen in the mud of springs and
branches. 1 suppose she swallowed It while drink-
lag- 1 traced the track of the intruder through the
costa of her stomach into her liver, thence beck
through her diaphragm into her lung. What will
appear moat strange to the physician, she neither
coughed nor expectorated. I refer the incredulous
to Col. W. II. Mattox, bin father and Uncle John W.
