Popular science monthly . c^^^^ and which are distributed tlirough the water in the pipe. The greater weight of water lathe well overbalances the aerated water, and is forced upward and discharged One or more wells are sunk to a depthconsidcrahly below the level of theunderground water. A pipe of largediameter open at the bottom is thensunk nearly to the bottom of each well.This is for the water discharge. Whennot pumping, the water in this pipewill be at the same level as that in thewell. A second pipe of small diameteris also sunk to the bottom of each well, terminating in a chamber which sur-rounds the water-pipe. Air passes fromthis chamber through small perforationsinto the water-pipe, mixing small bubbleswith the water, giving a champagneeffect. These bubbles rise very slowh, until they arc distributed throughoutthe entire column of water in the dis-charge pipe. Coincident with the ad-mission of air, the column of waterelongates until it discharges. The weight of water in the well over- balances the very m
