In Cases of Dyspepsin. Rheumatism,
Gout ami Nervous Breakdown,
Upon recent investigation by emin
etn physicians, chemists and scien
tists it has been demonstrated that
natural, earth flowing mineral waters
are the most beneficial means for the
cute of organic maladies.
Pnao Robles Hot Springs are at
this time the point of interest to most
investigators, as rectus occurences
have attracted the attention of the
thinking world to these springs
One of their chief points of inter
est to medical men is said to be that
which. proves that a pre-eminent ac
tion rests in the waters which flow
from the earth at Paso Robles, Cal
ifornia. Paso Robles Hot Springs are mak
ing cures daily of rheumatism, gout,
stomach trouble, neurotic diseases,
kidney trouble, and general break
down, which proves almost beyond
question to medical men that there
is Borne quality in these waters su
uerlor to any ill this country and
probably In the world.
It Is also claimed for Paso Robles
that the air conditions are perfect. It
lies In a small valley protected by
mountain ranges; Ib 720 feet above
sea level and is not assailed by too
much sea moisture or an abnormal
tomperaluro from the hot land winds.
This air condition Is thought by
some to have almost as much to do
with its cures as the waters them
selves. The town like all health rcBorts,
Is filled with boarding houses of all
kinds, bo thnt every purse will be
pleased. There are hotols for the
rich, where any luxury may be had.
Private baths for exclusive patrons
who wish to be to themselves.
Those springs have been known
for centuries, for they were used by
the Indian to euro his sick and later
the Franciscan fathers performed
wonderful cures here, but it is only
recently that the really marvelous
powers of theso waters were made
known to the world at large.
Nearly every form or organic trou
ble Is .treated at those hot springs

cept those who have tuberculosis or
unclean diseases. For the man who
suffers from overeating or from n'.co
hollc excesses there Ib nothing ill the
world to equal a week spent at PnBo
