FINDING WATER BY DIVINATION. A CHALLENGE. Sir,—In answer to Mr. C. Wolley-Dod's letter in your issue of Aug. 25, respecting water-finding, I have no doubt Mr. Wolley- Dod is aware of the great success from the divining rod all over the country. But perhaps Mr. Wolley-Dod does not believe anything unless he can see both ends of everything. He speaks of blindfolding the water-finder to baffle him. He may think so, but he makes a great mistake. If a person is blindfolded, his sight is taken from other things, and I can assure him the shock of the spring is felt much plainer and stronger when blindfolded. If I am trying a doubtful spring, I always do it with my eyes closed. Will Mr. Wolley-Dod stand to a fair public test on the conditions that the one that fails will have to pay £10 10s. to the Chester Hospital, and to pay the boring expenses, and I will guarantee the depth of spring within 10 feet ? This will be the fairest way to settle the question. I have been water-finding over 30 years, and I have had four failures during that time, in Egypt, India, and China, and all through England. I am leaving England next month for water-finding again in Egypt. In all my water- finding I guarantee the depth of the springs within 10 feet to the depth I give, and should I fail to find the water I indicated, I make no charge for the sinking done. I shall be pleased to make an arrangement with Mr. Wolley-Dod through this paper for a fair trial.—I am, Sir, yours truly, HENRY CHESTERMAN, Champion Expert Water-finder. 3, Anglo Terrace, Bath, Sept. 1st, 1897.
