WARM SPRINGS,
PERRY COUNTY, PA.
rPFtn ur.derxlgried begs leave to inform the public, that
-*- lie hag recently purchased the Warm Sprint#, in
Perry county, Pa , and has improved and refurnished the
building# for the entertainment of visiters, in a style
calculated to ensure couifort and convenience to all who
may feel disposed to patronize the establishment.
These springs are situated on the banks of ami empty
Into Sherman's creek, a stream assoc ated with the thrill
ing seen< between the early settlers of that part of
I Pennsylvania and the aborigines, whose hunting grounds
lay on Its margin They are 11 miles from Carlisle,
(through which Ibe Cumberland Valley Railroad passes
from Chambersburg to Uarrisburg,) from whkh place
visiters can at alt times procure excellent convey arires.
Those also from the easi. wishing to reach the springs by
the Central Railroad, can do so by taking passage to the
Duncannon Iron Works, (13 miles distant from the
springs) where coaches are constantly in readiness to
convey them thither; and those coming from the west
on the same road, can at ail tunes obtain easy conveyan
ces at the Railroad Hotel at Newport, which is but a few
miles distant from the springs
The qualities of the water at these springs are most
extraordinary indeed for the speedy and permanent cure
of SCROFULA, TETTER, Eruption vf the Skin, and
In J act every sptciet nf Cutantoue Vutasrs. He has
hundreds of certificates, showing the wonderful cures
effected by using this water internally, and by bathing in
It, obtained as well from strangers as from those residing
I't the immediate neighborhood of the springs, w ho have
not only experienced the infallible efficacy of the water
themselves, but witnessed lite same upon others. Prof
JAMES C BOOTH has analyzed the waters, and found
them to contain W 2 grains of solid matter in the gallon,
which is composed as follows :
Carbonate of lime, ... 2 (if,7
" magnesia, - - 1 b3S
Alkaline salts, chiefly cltlorWies. wish a p>,r
lion of sulphate, I Htl3
Hiliela - - - - 0 603
Organic matter, "... 2.MIT

There are also at the same piace half a dozen of other
springs, of different ilescrtptions, among which is one <>f
sulphur and one of cold water.
It rosy not be imiiropertostate why a knowledge of the
extraordinary medical qualities of these springs has not
(•••en more extensively known than is indicated by lh<-
certificate# of those only who have resided in their im
nedtate neighborhood. Yi-ars ago the property fell into
'tie hands of a number of heirs, who were indisposed to
undertake the repon#ibility of making it place of pob
tic entertainment —probably because the patronage ol'the
pjblic would not have justified the undertaking, as at
'bat time (before the apirit nf improvement had rend red
distant and difficult points nf speedy and cheap access,)
Us location was out of the way, and the roads to il rough
ar,.) almost impassable At the death of Mr. Kennedy,
it fell into the hands of hi# heirr, neither of whom seem
il disposed to lake hold of it, but leas' d it to tenant#,
more for the cultivation of the land than a regard to the
use of the water It was finally rented to Mr flippte,
(now proprietor of a large hotel in Treiuorit. I'a ) who
made arrangements to accommodate the public, and dur
ing hi* term many invalids availed themselves of lids
opportunity to visit and test it* medical qualities Mr
liipph- however retired in a short time, and the property
again fell into the hands of the. tu ir< and remained so
iiilil proceeding# were instituted u> the. Orphans'Omri
for us sale. It ordered to le sold, and ih' - sutwen
'cr became the pur. baser- li will ihu# be seen that with
'lw exception of the short lime it was held by Mr. Hip
pie, no effort# were u ad,- to bring it into notice
