A Pump and a Well
Societies, Scientific Practitioners
Notes that members of the British Association for the Advancement of Science style themselves 'pumps' and ponders a paper by one such pump, Rev. T Rankin, on a 'deep well'. Suggests that 'scientific minds' would make ridiculous observations about the well, such as 'I wonder how deep the water is'.
