This water would have the follow-
ing medical properties to the extent
of the minerals contained therein:
(a) Calcium Cabonate is an excel-
lent antacid, extensively used by phy-
sicians in cases of acidity attending
dyspepsia, gout, etc.
(b) Magnesium Carbonate, is also
an antacid and laxative, being favor-
ably employed in sick stomach, at-
tended with acidity. It is also an ex-
cellent antilithic when uric acid ?s
present in excess.
(c)Sodium Sulphate is an efficient
hydragogue-cathartic; in smaller
amounts, it is aperient and diuretic.
(d) Sodium Carbonate is the natural
alkali of the blood and other liquids
of the human organism. It is of de-
cided value in the treatment of gall
stones, ^ind various affections associa-
ted with excessive acidity of the bi-
liary secretions. It is successfully
used when necessary to overcome aci-
dity of the stomach or intestines, or
to render acid urine akaline. It is
not only of value internally, but ex-
ternally in skin diseases, especially
those of a papulous scaly character.
From a mineral standpoint this
water is excellent as a drinking wa-
ter, there being absolutely nothing of
a mineral nature in it to impair the
stomach or health in any way.
