the undersigned during the present summer, who
will use every effort in bis power to render it one
of tbe meet attractive ana agreeable watering
places in Virginia, It is situated on an elevation

The analysis made by tbe late Or. De Butts from
one hundred grains of the water from the main
fountain .afforded 63 grains of sulphate of lime,
10 J grains Carbonate or lime, 33 J grains of sulphate

From the above analysis the wsters ot Shannondale
may very properly be classed among tbe Saline
Cbalybeales? a combination of the most valuable
description in the whole range of mineral
waters, ft.may therefore be positively asserted,
without exaggeration or fear of contradiction, that
no mineral water within th? limits of TTniurf
States, possesses the same constituent parts, or is a
more salutary and efficient purgativfe, than the
water of Shannondale Springe This water acts
as gently as the mildest aperient, without giving
rise to those unpleasant sensations of pain and debility
so often occasioned by ordinary cathartics,
prepared by the most skilful pbysicans.
The free use of this water acts almost immediately
upon the skin and kidneys, removes worms,
relieves the convalescent from bilious or other
fevers, dyspepsia, dropsical swellings, calculous
affections, hemorrhoids,scrofula, indigestion, rheumatism,
lobs of appetite, exhaustion, general debility,
gravelly codcretions, strictures, and a
rariety of other diseases to which man is subject;
and it is freely acknowledged by all who have
been afflicted with any of the above diseases that
ihe free use ef the Shannondale waters have effectad
permanent cures.
