that tho levy to maintain the govurn

than ono and one half mills. While
the estimate Is pretty low, It Is pos
fdhle that such a levy would bo suf
ficient. However, since the average
taxpayor feels It Is necessary to place
a low valuo on his holdings when (he
assessor visits him, and some to for
get that they nave any taxable prop

bo done Is to levy enough to meet

claim that many do not give hi cor

Investigators, as rectne occurences
have attracted the attention of the
thinking world to these springs
One of their chief points of Inter
tst to medical men Is said to he that
which proveB that a pre-eminent ac
tion rests In tho waters which flow
from the earth at Paso Uobles, Cal
ifornia. Paso Robles Hot Springs are mak
ing cures dally of rheumatism, gout,
stomach trouble, neurotic diseases,
kidney trouble, and general break
down, which proves almost beyond
question to medical men that there
Is some quality in these waters su
perior to any In this country and
probably In the world.
It Is also claimed for Paso Robles
that the air conditions are perfect. It
lle3 in a small valley protected by
mountulD ranges; is 720 feet above
sea level and Is not assailed by too
much sea niomture or an abnormal
temperature from the hot land winds.
This air condition is thought by
somo to have almost as much to do
with its cures as the waters them
selves. The town like all health resorts.
is tilled with boarding houses of all
kinds, so that every purse will be
pleased. There are hotels for the
rich, where any luxury may he had.
Private baths for exclusive patrons
who wish to be to themselves.
These springs have been known
ror centuries, for they were used by
the Indian to cure his sick mid later
tho Franciscan fnthers performed
wonderful cures here, but. It Is only
recently that the really marvelous
powers of these waters were made
known to the world nt large.
Aearlv every form or organic trou
ble Is treated at these hot springs
for tho authorities welcome all ex
cept those who have tuberculosis or
unclean, diseases. For tho man who
suffers from overeating or from alco
holic excesses there is nothing In tho
world to enual a week spent at Paso
Uobles. U straightens him out with
a rupldlty that Is wonderful, and tho
best recommendation is that they do
away with the nerve-craving for stim

Truly speaking the study of Paso
Robles Hot Springs is one which Is
giving the medical fraternity abroad
and at home much Interest, und Is
probably directing more attention
to California than nny other of her
