Medicinal Waters Near Eaton.
"Cleanliness is next to Godliness," is
an' old maxim, founded ou the fact that,
bathing the body in pure water is con
ducive to health. The use rf mineral
waters for various diseases is as old as
civilization, and progress in the -science
of medicine as well as the ex perience of
mankind, have only served to more cer
tainly fix the waters prepared by the
Sitrkme Chemist? in their proper place
as remedial aud curative agents. How
do mineral waters act? Doubtless
through the salts which they contain,
but on this delicate subject there still
prevails much uncertainty. The ana
lysis is for the chemist a difficult prob
lem to solve; he may find in the water
Carbonic, Sulphuric or Silicious Acid,
etc., Chlorine, Iodine, -Potassa, Soda or
Magnesia, etc., but how are these ele
ments combined and connected with
each other ? If we knew this we might
hope to find that there existed between
the water and its constituent elements
a relation which might permit us to di
vine its medical properties. Many min
eral springs contain Iron in very minute
proportion, aud yet it acts with more ef
ficacy than all medicinal remedies. We
see unexpected effects produced by
springs, yet the invalid has probably
taken only a few glasses of water each
day; perhaps he has only taken the
hundredth part of a grain of Iron. "A
Mineral Water," as Dr. Constantine
James has observed, is not an ordinary
saline solution ; it is, on the contrary, a
special beverage, which nature has mix
ed by a kiudrf occult chemistry, and of
which till now preserved the secret a
niong her treasures.
We hazard nothing in making the
statement that no county in the State,
perhaps none in the United States Is
richer in valuable Medicinal Springs
than Preble. The three springs at New
Paris, two of which hsve been subject
ed to analysis, are valuable, and are at
tracting the attention of invalids all
over the country. North-west, and only
two and one-half miles -from' Eaton,
there is a Chalybeate Spring, than
which there is none stronger in Iron in
the United States. Within one quarter
of a mile of the corporate limits are six
flowiug wells, very strong in Iron, So
dium, Potassium, Ac. None of these
springs have as yet been subjected to
complete analysis, and we therefore
propose to speak particularly of the well
in the Court House square. This well
is seventy feet in depth, thirty of which
is through soils of clay and pure gravel,
and forty feet bored through solid rock.
A careful analysis of the water of this
wrll has been made by F. M. Michael,
a competent Drussist and Chemist of
Eaton, which we herewith give:
113,000 grains of water contains :
Carbonate of Lime,
Sulphate Lime, .
Sulphate of Potassium,)

Sulphur Compound, )
Proto Sulphate Iron, f
Sulphuric Aeid, - Trace.

The above analysis proves this water
as very valuable in Liver and Kidney
complaints. Its aet.on on the bowels is
quite marked, and its effect as a tonic,
on weak and debilitated constitutions,
is certainly wonderful. This water as
yet, has been used only by our own citi
zens, but those seeking to be benefitted
can see in our town the living evidenc
es of what'this water has already done
and is still I'oing. We write this arti

Celebration of St. John's Day in
A short time since, Bolivcr Lodge,
No. 82, F. & A. M., resolved to hold a
social pic-nic at the Fair Grounds, on
the 2-lth inst. Tho several Commit
tees in charge of Hie various duties
to which they wore appointed so well
responded to their work, that when
the morning of the anniversary came
everything was in readiness for a day
of enjoyment. The day was auspi-
ions. A special train from Hamilton
brought up a large number of the
Brethren with their wives and child
ren. Camden Lodjje also came up,
furnished with an excellent Brass
Band, which by its choico music con
tributed much to the enjoyment of the
day. A procession was formed about

celebration that there might bo a
scarcity for want of food. But when
the Brethren came to opcu their well-
filled baskets, there was so bouutiful
a supply that we think every man,
woman and child had an abundance ;
and in tho languago of Bro. Lawder's
excellent little speech, mado after din
ner, there were many basketsfull of
fragments left. The pic-nic was iu
every sense a success, a success in
point of numbers present, a success in
the cheerful enjoyment of tho whole
day. The members of the Order who
took part in the exercises of the pro
gramme acquitted themselves . well.
The Eaton Cornet Band discoursed
excellent music, aud well sustained
its enviable reputation ; and the sing
ing by the Choir was thoroughly en
joyed by tho audience.
Bro. Z. T. Sullivan delivered tho
address, which was replete with jew
