The principal compounds are probably as follows:

Silica, small quantity; alumnia, small quantity; iron carbonate, small quantity; sodium chloid, nearly half the total solids; magnesium sulphide, considerable quantity; sodium carbonate, probably quantity; alkaline sulphide, small or none.

 

These are very fine magnesian, saline calsic, sulphur waters.  They have a very pleasant taste and their excellence is enhanced by the absence of alkaline sulphides.  They resemble the Epsom Springs waters, but are about twice as strong.  They should be excellent waters for all diseases for which such waters are used.  Their freedom from organic matters and nitrites shows them to be good and wholesome waters.

“From the above analysis will be seen that these waters are excellent for any disease of the kidneys, stomach and liver.  And they are an excellent blood purifier.  And on these depend the whole human system; if your liver, kidneys, and blood are right you will not be sick; and if you are sick, you have only to use the remedy that will correct these organs and conditions.”
