The .outstanding development
of the year in the matter of; put
ting. the resort features of the
country on ' the map, writes The
Hubbard Enterprise, has. been the
completion or a teu mousand
dollar' sanatorium and hotel at
the Hubbard Mineral Springs and
the further development of the
property which was purchased n
few months ago by Dr. w A.
Smith, T. C; Watson, A. H. Horn
and I. O. Williams from the
Wolfer estate at Hubbard, Ore
gon... The' sanatorium has been re-
cently opened. By spring, the fol
lowing improvements will have
been built: A large swimming
pool. 30 by 100 feet, twenty mod
ern cottages electrically equipped.
play grounds ana piay noDDies lor
Children, and ground will be laid
out for tennis, croquet, baseball
and horse shoe. ,
.This natural resort is located in
one of nature's prettiest play
grounds and on every hand can
be seen the beautiful blending of
the architecture of the universe
grand old trees, secluded nooks,
lazy nerve-resting creek, air lad
en with the breath of he fir.
Fifteen years ago, the previous
owner conceived the idea that the
waer contained medical proper
ties. " Acting upon this belief, he
sent a sample of the water to M.
Stillman, engineer of tests for the
Southern . Pacific Railway com
pany. The report returned label
ed the "American Carlsbad" be
cause of its similarity to the "Ger
man Carlsbad," thought to be the
greatest, mineral water springs in
A hot and cold water system
has been installed in the new
sanatorium which provides pure
water from a spring as well as
both hot and cold water from the
mineral spring with a flow of one
hundred gallons per minute.- The
springs are situated in a natural
and most beautiful park, which,
when the landscape architect has
completed his work next year.
will doubtless be the most beau
tiful park in the .Willamette val
ley outside of Portland's famous
city park, and it will in many re
spects surpass this great resort.
The Hubbard Mineral Springs
are appropriately called the
"Carlsbad ; ot America.?' because
of the striking similarity of the
Carlsbad of Germany. - Plans have
already been drawn for a large
swimming-pool to be "constructed
at the springs next summer.
The Hubbard Mineral Springs
Co. filed papers of incorporation
last August and since that time
constructive development from a
purely modern standpoint has
been pursued at nn expense of ap
proximately $25,000, and this is
only . a beginning.
According to an analysis made
by M. Stillman, engineer of tests
for the Southern Pacific Railway
Co., the total matter in solution
consisting of grains per U. S. gal
ton, are 1.69.' Chloride of sodi
um and potassium. 27.74: bi-car-bonate
of lime, 6.S2: bi-earbonate
of soda, 16.10; bi-earbonate of
magnesia. 4.26; r. bi-carbonate of
iron. 2.10; silica, 2.39: sulphate
of soda, .58: manganesa, traces.
The water contains enough iron
to give it a decided taste and
classify it as a chalybeate water.
The new enterprise has already
commenced to attract much at
tention and the management has
welcomed thousands of visitors
from all parts of the country dur
ing the past few months, even
