MINERAL WELLS TEXAS CARLSBAD WATER

Description:

This picture appears to be a label taken from a container of mineral water sold by the Texas Carlsbad Water Company. The label describes the water as "Purgative" and "Diuretic." DIRECTIONS state further: The average person requires from 8 to 12 glasses per day, but there are those who need less, and others for whom this quantity will not suffice. Hence drink such quantity as gives desired effect, be it small or great. One or two glasses taken hot, half hour before breakfast, will be found very effective.
The label ends with the legend: This Label Censored [sic] by the Parker-Palo Pinto Co. Medical Society.
