POISONED WELLS. j Ignorance of Geological Knowledge, j Mr John Lloyd, writing from 15, Chepstow- J •lace, W., says: —"The want of geological know- edge accounted for landowners granting long eases of valuable mineral rights at a small fixed ent 150 years ago. To-day tbey are wiser. But be Local Government Board and London if&cials and utban and rural sanitary (authorities .re still unacquainted with even ths rudiments if geological knowledge and sanction echemes for he passage of sewage carriers, and even of ewage farms, on and over highly porous strata. Pbe Clydach Valley in Breconshira is an instance t if this, and tbe simple dwellers there ac the foot if the mountain limestone rocks bave bean Jiink- ng water from ancient springs, once pare, but tow for yearc polititei by the sewage carriers of be Local Government Board authorised sewage arm of the town of Brynmawr. These sewage ariiers leak, and tbeir foul contents sink into be craonies of tbe- limestone rock and poison he wells below. It is On old story, aud typhoid ever is scarcely ever absent from tbis little Doantaiu valley. A very few years ago I strongly irged the Crickhowell sanitary authority and hair medical officer, Mr Hill, to attend before he Parliamentary Committee than sitting out -5ill dealing with the water eupplyof the district, ['heir 'appearance and the evidence of Mr Hill, heir medical officer of health, would have been boat valuable, but no favourable response came, tud I was told my letter was ordered to lie on he table,' with a cheap snaar from one of its eading membera-a member of the County Jouncil-at ray interference. And the Local government Board, tto, turned a deaf ear."
