In this country. The heolthfulness of this
section of the State cannot be disputed
and when it is understood that Virginia,

Llthla Springs, 550 feet above the sea.
This Spring has been known for many
years as Iho best water In this commun?
ity and upon development, there was
fourni three separate fountains, deriving
their source from as many separate veins
in the solid rock. The analysis has proven
that these waters contain different
amounts of mineral matter, which also
differs In medicinal properties and value.

-traveled out of their way to get water
from this Spring, when they wero school
boys and nfterwardR when they, with
the ambition of youth, tramped through
the forest in search of game, which was
abundant in their day and which they
brought down with the old flint-lock guns
now a relic ot Kevolutlonary times.
It would appear that the properties of
these waters must havo been recognized
by the Indians, when this country was
