There is to be au alley the entire length of the basement, and a laundry 23x40 feet. In the rear of the basement will be located the boiler and engine house, in which an engine of 40 horse power will do the pumping. The first story running back to the bath rooms will be 40x60 feet, and is to be divided into reception rooms for ladies and gentlemen.

This portion of the building is 60x72 feet and the walls 14 feet high. It will be lighted by skylights and five windows on the south side. The second story over the reception rooms will be fitted up for offies and smoking rooms. The total cost of the building, including piping, furniture, machinery, etc, will be about $25,000. The water, and there is no better mineral water to had anywhere, willbe conveyed in pipes from the well at Cornwell's paper mili and then distributed to all portions of the building. As to the efficacy of the water, its curative powers have been f lilly demonstrated by those who have used it. A large nuinber of invalids are waiting anxiously for the completion of the mineral bath house, when they propose to test the virtues of the water. We congratĂșlate our sister city on this new enterprise, for if one-half that has been told is true about the remarkible cures, there is "millions in it."
