On the Frontier:

A Medicinal Spring

This water has strong medicinal and remedial qualities, but requires to be drunk very carefully, at first, by both man and beast, or very serious results may ensue. It has one quality in common with The Caves water -.- the more you drink of it the more you want to do so. It is slightly saline in flavour, and decidedly sweet. When first taken from the spring it is too hot to drink ; in fact, the water in the basin is so warm that the hand cannot be long held in it. I have used the water in July, and I have used it in January, and it was of just the same temperature. It is the most delightful water to wash with ever used, has a soft velvety touch to the skin that is delicious, and leaves it in beautiful condition, pure and white like that of Venus Aphrodite, smooth and fine as the coat of a race-horse in high training. But it makes the vilest coffee, and the nastiest tea conceivable.
