White Stone Lithia Water!
I< the lightest water ou the market. We realize that thin is claiming a great
doal, and we ooulil not afford to make this assertion unless wo knew that we
could prove it to he true. But it does not bake an expert to test tho loftness of
a Mineral Water. When oarbonating a mineral water, if it. is a hard water the
gases will not ho absorbed in tho wator, and when the bottle is opened, the gas
es escape, and the water is left Hat and hard, whilo If it is a soft water, like
White Stono Lithia, it will retain Ls gases for hours after being unstopped.
