A Wonderful Spring Natural Chicken
About one mile out from Elko, on the
old White Pine road, aro a number of
hot springs the property of Messrs.
Laumeistur & Groej. per. One of these
springs is really a great natural curiosity
a spriug the like of which is perhaps
nowhere else to be found in the whole
world. It is a hot spiing of considera
ble size, the water of which, when prop
erly seasoned with pepper and salt, can
not be distinguished f rom the best chick
soup. Of the hundreds who Lave par
taken of it all agree that it has precise
ly the taste of chicken soup or broth.
The proprietors have made many expert'
mcnts with the water of this spring, and
find it both wholesome and nutritious.
Three pounds of beef boiled iu the water
of the (spring yields as much soup as
could be obtained from twelve pounds of
the same meat cookod in common water.
The spring is one of a group of hot
springs situated in a stretch oi moderate-
ly hilly or rolliug ' couuuy , - uud in
no way remarkable iu appearance.
Like the other springs about the placed .
it ie at the top of a little mound of loam
and sediment formed by the decay of
plants and mineral deposits from the.
water. The proprietors of the springs
have constructed bathing rooms near
them, into which hot and cold water,
nronerlv minsled, is led: but as yet thertf
are no hotel accommodations. However,
the springs are but a mile out ot the
towuofElko, and a wagon leaves tho
town for the spriDgs every two hours.
Physicians speak very niguiy oi mo
medical virtues of the springs, and were
they situated near some large city tiiey
would be worth a mint of money. The
soup spring would supply not only all
the soup houses, but an tne noieis ana
restaurants with a good article of
chicken soup ; then at a small cxpenser

horses, all of which were consumed.
Another barn, belonging to F. M. Mans
field, standing near, filled with sheaf oats,

chickens. They have already hatched
several large batches, and find the
operation inexpensive. The eggs are
placed in small wooden boxes capable of
holding o dozen or two caeh, and theso
are then placed in frames and sunk to
the proper depth in the water, the tem
perature of which is regulated by the
proper admixture of hot and cokl water.
The eggs aro placed between layers of
cotten wool and are turned over once
every day. The water is not alowed to
come in contact with the eggs, The
proprietors of the spring intend to go into
this chicken-hatching Dusiness quite
extensively as soon as they can erect the
proper tanks and buildii'gs. Chickens
have been successfully hatched, with

Springs, near this city, lhere is hot
