Chemical Properties of a Spring
le- That Makes the Hair Grow.
an The Strange DIscovery of a Bald-Headed
el, Old Man Whose Sealp Was Made to
no Produce a Generous
The spring is about thirteen miles
southeast of San Diego, at the head of a
little valley branching from the Swoet
s water. Standing on the little mound out
1( of which the waters gush you can see
he Mount San Miguel to the east, to the
he southward Sweetwater lake, and off in
a the west a range of low hills which
ig just shuts ofn the view of the Pacific
ze ocean. And if you follow. the road a
1 little farther north you will find your
self among the olive and lemon groves
of the Sweetwater and Spring valleys.
a The tiny valley is part of the old Span
as ish "Jamacha" grant, and had passed
he through many and romantic episodes
th before it made known the powers of its
pt- little spring. Underlying its soil and
p- but a few inches below the surface
es. there is an immense cement deposit,
Ur highly impregnated with iron, arsenic,
ed sulphur and magnesia, and it is sup
UU posed that the waters get their chemical
nd qialities by percolating through this
' cement bed and dissolving its ingredi
da The first person to discover the virtue
ad of these waters, says the Chicago Inter
kil Ocean, was an old man named Jepsen,
ct, who in 1885 lived on an adjoining claim
en and carried water for doinestic pur
lin poses from this spring. iIe was then
lIV seventy-three years old, his head was
8L, perfectly bald on the crown, and what
s hair lie had was thin and scattering. In
a few weeks a thick growth of hair
started up all .over his head, and his
U0 son, who is now a merchant on K street
1es in San Diego, says that he had to cut
his father's hair many times during
ud their residence on the ranch. At the
he time they regarded this growth of hair
ng as an unaccountable phenomenon, and
on did not think of attributing it to the
ist waters of the spring until they learned
on of its effects upon other people.
e4- At about the same time Charles Fitz
I. allen, another bald man, nearly sixty
years old, was living on the ranch and
J regularly using the spring water. In
about two months' time he found a new
, growth of hair covering his head, which
lie says is as soft and luxuriant as it
. was in his youthful days.
w Dr. P. C. Remondino, Dr. Thomas L.
iitI Magee and Dr. T. A. Davis, all prom
lot inent San Diego physicians and
SK members of the board of health
I. of that city, have investigat
a ed the spring and its cures and
have reported as follows to your cor
respondeut: "The water is alkaline,
ed ferruginous, sulphurretted, and arsen
ical, and from the evidence brought be
s fore us we must acknowledge that it has
ny made hair grow on scalps where it had
been entirely lost. Of this we have had
ir- several examples on persons whom we
its have known for a numberof years and
he who, until the use of said waters, had
t1e given up all hope of ever again having
M a full head of hair."
heP Most of the people in San Diego who
i known anything about this spring will
1. simply laugh and say, "Nonsense!" if
you ask them about its hair-raising
es prop)erties. T1heir scepticism, however,
is based solely on broad, general prin
eip)les, andI no ease was found in which
it wvas dlue to personal knowledge. But

Lequally gallant attempt to save life

leveral stores and the Postofoe Dr.
An extra Issue by the St. George's
gews dated December 23, says: The
nost disastrous fi e that St. George's
ias ever experienced occurred this
morning, starting at about 1 o'clock.
[t originated In the upper story of
L. A. Klauber's store, on Main St., and
was first discovered by Messrs. I. E.
Minus and E. E. Felder, who on their
way home from a party In the -intry,
Baw the flAmes burting from oi% of the
apper windows of the store. They ran
to the Methodist Church, broke in the
door, and rang the bell to alarm the
citizens who quickly respoDded to the
call. Before anything could be done,
however, the fire had completely en
vel)ped Klauber's building, and there
was no time to save any thing, and it
was cImpletely destroyed with all its
contents. From there the fire leaped to
the old McAlbany store, rented by 11.
H. iarper, and destro.jed it.
The posteflice building on the same
I>t next caught, and was destroyed,
but all mail matter etc , had been previ
ously iemoved, and the building itselt
nearly demolished in order to check the
flames, before It was consumed. The
Mc Albany house now occupied by Mr.
W. G. Sease was In great danger, but by
persistent work It was saved. The
buildig of Mrs W. 8. Uisey occup'e I
by Dr. P. M. Judy as a drug store, was
saved by arduous and persevering work
alone, and it is woLderful that it was
saved at all. The birber's shop on
Klaubers lot was burned also, and had
there been the least wind there is no tell
ing where t, ie fire would have ended.

several thousand dollars' worth of
clothine, and his stock of go->ds was
worth from ten to twelve tLousand dol

stand, is only $3,400, and scarcely any
thing at all was saved.
Mr. Herper's stock was insured tor
*1,000. and the largt r part of it was
saved, but konsiderable damage and loss
was occasioned in its removal. There
was, we niderstan ' no insurance upon
The credit of saving Dr. Judy's store
is largely due to Alfred Mitchell, Joe
Cobb, Primus Chisolm and Jim House,
colored citizeni, who wot ked like inroes,
and stood the inteuse heat without
flinching. Messrs R. E. Minus, R. L.
Utsey, A. B. S,ret t and G. E. Way,
and others distinguished themselves in
fighting the flames, and Mr. A. Baron
Holmes, of Ctiarleston, who happ med
to be stopping at Mr. Sease's. pitcied
in and rendered most, efficient service.
The McAlhany store occupied by
Harper was, we 1believe, the oldest in
the to vn, and wa a kind of land-mirk.
For ears we have anticipated a fire in
that crowded part, of the village, and it
has at, last, come.
There is cause for thankfulness that,
it was no jorse. The least wind would
ha%e created far more destruLtioi-and
that lea -s us to say that i - there had
been a fire company or hook and ladder
company of any sort, in the~ town the
damage wcutd ha'.e been much less.
