The reports of correspondents of the

by the North Carolina I x peri mem t Sta
tion and State Weather Service for the
week ending Friday, May 221, loDl,
show the weather conditions during t he
past week have been v ry fayor.dne,
and that crops have generally improved
somewhat as well as the spirits of the
farmers. Occasional thowers fell timing
the week, which were very beneficial,
but the rain-fall was below the average
aiitl more rain is needed, especially in
the B.istern District. Tne temperature
has been below the average, the nigtits
particularly, being too coo!. The de
ficiency in temperature for the Stale
during the week amounts to over 20
degrees. Ars regards the condition of
etops, it -will fc seen that reports are
unanimous as to t lie poor stand of cotton,
and generally also of ccm. Many farm
ers ave had to replant cottonsand
-o nc are doing it now ; others are plow -big
up land and planting corn.br peas
instead of cotton. In fact, farmers are
.sullen ng from undue haste in planting
on soil not fully prepared. The week
was very favorable for transplanting to
bacco, in w hich rapid progress has been
made. There are no complaints about
scarcity of plants. The wheat and oat
crops are reported in fair condition.

Geological Survey purchase a diamond
drill, to be u-ed in making deep borings
for investigating the extent and value of
mineral deposits, building stones,
and have olferi d to co-operate with the
survey in bearing the expense of making
these borings. It is the object of the
Survey to do everything possible to aid
in making known and developing the
mineral and other resourcefoi the Stati;
and but for the heavy expense of pur
chasing" and opeiating the drill there
would be no doubt as to the wisdom of our
making use of this important means of
exploration, which on account of its cost
but lew geological surveys have tried.
The cost of operating one drill continu
ously would require the entire appropri
ation for the survey; and that without
accomplishing a very large part of the
work for which the survey 'was estab
lished. And the only basis on which it
seems practicable for the survey is
that of liberal e - )peration by parties
on whose lands borings are to be made.
And this but fair as tliese parties are the
ones to be most benefited bv the boring.
It will be we:l, before deciding on the
purchase of a drill, that tire State geolo
gist be informed as to the probable num
ier of pai ties who rnav desire to com-
oete in this work on the basis stated be
The cost of a diamond drill which w ill
bore to a depth of 700 feet including engine
ami complete equipment, is from 0,000
to 8o,o00. i o operate the d. il.l requires
the services of two, and at times, of three,
trained men who are paid usually about
$B $2 and$l pel day, respectively. Then
there is the considerable cost of "dia
monds" which set in the lower end of
the driil-tube do the cutting (boring); the
cost of fuel, ami of traupcrting the ma
chinery from place to place. ' In fairly
sott rock like the sand atones and shales
of a coal formation, the rate of boring is
10 to 15 feet per day; and the cost, in
ciuding the above named items, varies
from 1 to per foot, averaging :r2 to ','
per foot. At 2.50 per foot a boring 100
teet doscp would cost 250; ami one 500
feet deep would cost $1,250. I:i harder
rock the cost is greater; and often the
breaking of "diamond?"' adds much to
The diamond drill consists of a tube
or hollow rod ol' iron, made in sections.
In the lower end of tiie low er section are
set three rows of diamond.-; and this
tube is revolved rapidly by the machin

cut their way downward the rock

current of water forcdbtlown inside and
which flovs up outside tiie drill tube,
inside this tube is also a core of solid rock
which when taken out shows tjie exact
character and thickness of rock or min
eral passed through. Tne drill will be
especially useful in prospecli ng for coal,
ouilding stone3 and iron ore-; ami under
some circumstances for other mineral de
posits. It seems !i.;e an expensive
means of expiorat ion, but it, is cheaper
than any ether method which lurnBhis

The plan of co-operation proposed is
that the Stale survey own tiie drill for

accordingly, the survey will decide as to
