The long hall in the addition leads directly from the main building into the bath house, on both the first and second stories, so one may go from room to bath and back, practically in one building. The whole house and bath house have been wired for electric lights, the current to be furnished by a generator on the premises, so that light and current for elevator and the special therapeutic treatments, to be installed later, may be available at all times of the day and night.

In some of the gas wells drilled in and around the village a dark salty water was found at varying depths, and it caused the drillers a good deal of annoyance. Some one thought that it might be good for something, and an investigation was made of its properties. An analysis showed that the water was substantially the same tffc that used in the famous baths at Mount Clemens, Michigan. Some of the water was pumped up and taken to the local hospital, then in charge of Dr. Hunter, and a few baths were given The results secured in cases of rheumatism and kindred troubles showed that the therapeutic value of the water was equal to that at the other places where the Black Water Baths have been used for many years. An attempt was made by the Business Men's Association to form a stock company to build a bath house and use the water to the benefit of the suffering and the upbuilding of the village. Some few shares were subscribed, but not enough to warrant, in the judgment of those in charge of the project, the proceeding with the plan, so the matter was allowed to rest. Afterwards Dr. Welch, who was very much interested in the idea, formed some plans and started to carry them out. His idea was to build a hotel with a bath house in connection with it, very much like those at Mount Clemens, but the pressure of other business forced him to abandon the plan. So it appeared that this great natural resource was to be allowed to go undeveloped and .the opportunity to write Westfield large on the map was to be neglected.Boraxo Limeade Japanese Fans A soap and Borax Powder rightly blended and perfumed tor toilet use.

In the meantime arrangements have been made to take care of all patients who may come, either for the baths alone or for board and rooms as well. A competent chef has been engaged and the table will be first class in every particular. The aim has been all through the planning, and will continue to be in the execution of the plans, to have just as good accommodations, service and treatment as can be had in any sanitarium in the country.

Among those interested in the idea from the very first was A. W. Rumsey- He saw the possibilities and was very anxious to have them realized. He subscribed for stock in the proposed business men's company and did what he could to make the effort a success. After that project was abandoned he kept thinking and talking about the matter until gradually a new idea shaped itself. With Mr. Rumsey an idea usually means a plan of action and a plan means a serious effort to accomplish. So he went to work on his plan and has gradually and steadily worked it out.

The young man attended a dance at Sherman Thursday night. He seemed to enter into the spirit of the occasion there, and gave no intimation of intended selfdestruction. After leaving the dance at about 3 o'clock Friday morning he drove to Ashton Corners, where he committed the deed on a road that was not much used. C. N. Pringle discovered the horse coming along the road without any guide and stopped him and found Mr. Bates' dead body in the buggy. The body was taken to the residence of Victor Raymond and the coroner notified. The remains were brought home Saturday and the funeral was held on Monday afternoon and was largely attended, Rev. G. L. Mac- Clelland officiating. He was formerly a clerk in W. H. Thompson's store and had a large circle of friends who mourn his untimely death. The Corner Drug Store. 19 Main St., R. D. POWERS, Westfield, N. Y. The large residence and .its ample grounds provided an ideal location for a sanitarium, and the black water was to be found in sufficient quantities in the gas well in the back yard. Mr. Rumsey obtained a charter for a stock company incorporated with a capital stock of $100.- 000, transferred the title to the property to the company, had the shares guaranteed and started to sell the stock. A few of the shares were sold and without waiting plans were drawn for the remodeling of the residence and the building of a bath house. The bath house is ready for business. An engine and pump have been installed at the well, the water is pumped into tanks of 150 barrels capacity. Steam, generated by a large boHer, passes through coils in the tanks and the water flows hot or cold as desired into heavy porcelain tubs. Fresh water is piped directly into the bath rooms. The bath house is divided, one side being for men, the other for women. Each side has a sitting or rest room, toilet room and complete bath equipment, consisting of Ave tubs separated by marble partitions. Opposite each bath is a cooling room with a cot. The whole is ventilated by large transoms in a cupola and heated by steam The entrance is through a spacious lobby, from which the stairs lead to the second story containing sleeping rooms and a room to be fitted up later for other treatments. Experienced attendants trained in the special methods of administering the mineral baths and their accompanying massage are ready to give each patient just the treatment required On the 4th of July the baths were ready and Mr. Carleton Jones took the first bath. He was very much pleased with the results and expressed the opinion that the water and the treatment were superior to that he had received on his visits to Mount Clemens. By making appointments for baths in advance patients will be sure of their time and will avoid waiting for others who may be ahead of them.
