FREEZING WEATHER AT
SHEPHERD’S HOT SPRINGS
H. M. Vail, well-known Lents
busine«« man, returned Sunday
with Mr». Vail from Carson,
Ws»h., where he had gone for
treatment at the hot springs.
Mrs. Vail went up Saturday to
come back with him. When »he
reached Carson she walked to
Shepherd's spring» where Mr.
Vail had been staying since the
previous Friday. When they
left Shepherd’s hotel for home,
having missed one train, they
had to walk over five miles
through the snow to another
railway station. Consequently
Mrs. V ail was confined to her
home for a day or so on account
of acute lameness.

fell to from 12 to 20 below
zero, which no ordinary hot
spring could overcome. He plans

these hot springs his system

tobacco user should go there that
length of time, cutting out the
use of the weed during his stay,
he would be so cleansed by the
baths and drinking the water
that he would have to* learn the
use of tobacco as a novic«- if he
wished to use it again. He con
siders his health improved al

springs was limited to such a
