Gentlemen: — 

Enclosed please find the analysis of the sample of Vade 
Mecum Water which I trust will meet your expectations. 

You ask me to express my opinion in regard to the 
value and uses of this water. In compliance to this re- 
quest, 1 beg to state, that I consider the water very val- 
uable for the following reasons: — 

1st. It is a decidedly palatable water, making it on 
that account very acceptable. 

2d. It has a decided medicinal effect; taken in ordin- 
ary quantities, a glassful three or four times a day, it will 
produce in most persons one or two easy evacuations, 
without griping; and v\ hen taken in large quantities, will 
produce active purgation. In addition to the above, I 
believe it to have a decided action on the liver and should 
produce very beneficial effects in cases of engorgement of 
that organ on continued use of the water in moderate 
quantities. 

I further believe that you will find it to be useful in 
cases of gouty diathesis and as a general alterative. 

Trusting the above, in connection with the enclosed 
analysis, will give you the desired information, I am, 
Very respectfully yours, 

HENRY FROEHLING.

HE SIGNAL results which attend the use of our water have made it an economic 
necessity. Those who know it, buy it as they buy bread. No other water carries 
so well or keeps so long. With our "Perfect Poplar Barrel" the expense 
problem is solved, and the inferior waters requiring expensive vessels, must look 
for purchasers where our water is not known. 

As stated by one of our grateful patrons "The Vade Mecum water is a blessing from 
God, intended by Him to heal the people." Entertaining such a thought, it is our aim to let 
the millions know of its virtues, and have it if they will.

THE RCTION OF HINERRL WJ\TERS. 

FROM AN EMINENT AUTHORITY. 



"The action of mineral waters may be divided into tlie 
IMMEDIATE and the REMOTE. 

The IMMEDIATE action is present as a stimulent, sedative 
or eliminant, according' to the constitution of the water. 

The ELIMINANT action results from the effect of the waters 
on the intestines, kidneys and skin. Waters containing chloride 
of sodium, sulphate of soda, or sulphate of mag-nesia, in large 
proportion, act readily on the intestines. The alkaline and 
calcic waters prove diuretic, some of them stimulating the kid- 
neys in a marked manner. 

The REnOTE action of mineral waters is its alterative 
effect. And this, in the majority of diseases, is by far the most 
important qualit}'. 

Alteratives are medicines which in appropriate doses, modify 
the nutrition of the body without producing any antecedent phe- 
nomena. This is precisely the result obtained by the long=con = 
tinued use of mineral waters in moderate doses. 

As has been before stated, we are only so much water in 
combination with varied proportions of carbon, oxj'gen, hydro- 
gen, 'itrogen, chloride of sodium, phosphate of lime, carbonate 
of lime, carbonate of soda, etc. The water thus combined may 
be termed. Jhe water of constitution, answering the same pur- 
pose in rr^ ataining the body in form, that the water of crys- 
talization does in continuing a crystal in its integrity. 



For the ordinarj' purposes of quenching thirst we imbibe 
waters containing a very Minute quantity of mineral ingre- 
dients ; but when we repair to a mineral fountain for the cure 
of disease we drink freely of water containing double, treble, 
quadruple, and even a hundred times, the quantity and number 
of chemical constituents. The water thus introduced, slowly 
and regularly penetrates every blood-vessel, capillarj^ and tissue 
of the bodily structure, gradularly replacing the water of con- 
stitution, and by its different chemical affinities changing the 
molecular organism. It is not maintained that all of the constit- 
uents of the mineral water are retained, doubtless an almost in- 
finitesimal quantity is incorporated each day, but in the course 
of weeks there is a decided and radical change — an alterative 
effect — manifested by increased metamorphosis of tissue, by 
elimination of poisonous elements, by the cure of disease. 

All mineral waters produce an alterative action. Is there 
any difference in this action as it results from various waters? 
"We answer unhesitatingl)', YES. The alterative effect of 
alkaline waters exhibits itself in a reduction of the fibrinous 
elements of the blood — In a modification of the processes which 
produce lithic acid. 

Saline waters exert their influence most decidedly on the 
glandular system. Sulphur waters tend to the skin. Chaly- 
beate waters effect the red globules of the blood."

VADE MECUM SPRING. 

DISCOVERY. 

Many years ago Prof. S. W. Dewey, from New Eng- 
land, an eminent geologist, said to be a relative of tiie 
hero of Manila, was prospecting in the Sauratown Moun- 
tains of Stokes County, N. C. 

He is believed to have been sent here by the heirs of 
General Pickering to whom the State of North Carolina had 
granted 10,000 acres of these wild lands, in recognition ol 
his services to the cause of Liberty. It was he who found 
here the mine of ITACOLlMlfE OR FLEXIBLE SANDSTONE and 
with it this wonderful spring, bursting up through the bed 
rock of a large creek, 2(3,000 gallons strong per day. His 
enthusiasm over its incomparable qualities is one of the tra- 
ditions handed down to the present generation. The creek 
covered it again. The title to these lands is but lately 
settled, and the wealth of this discovery remained a sealed 
book to the innocent denizens of this region. 

From time to time as the water was accessable it 
accomplished cures, which if told abroad would have 
startled the world. Finally in 1900, the closing days of a 
wonderful century, its owner W. H. Vaden reported such 
results as to attract attention abroad. Its sale followed at 
once, and the publication of the analysis on September 
14th, 1900, created a profound impression. A strong com- 
pany began at once the preparation for the throng which a 
great resort must attract. It is approched by the vSouthern 
Railway, a few miles North of Rural Hall, N. C, 25 miles 
North of Winston-Salem, N. C. ; 45 miles Northwest of 
Greensboro, N. C. Such is a short account of a discovery 
destined to become known and read of all men.

MEANING OF OUR ANALYSIS. 



The human body, average weight 154 pounds, is com- 
posed of 38 pounds of dry matter and 116 pounds of water. 

This proportion must be maintained by taking 75 to 
100 ounces of water daily. Failing to do this the body 
becomes lean, the bowels constipated, the urine high col- 
ored, the skin dry and sallow, the feet cold, the liver and 
other organs sluggish and disease a necessary result. 

In addition to pure water, the human body requires 
salts, such as sulphate of magnesia, chloride of sodium. 



calcium chlorine, lithia, etc. to preserve a normal tone and 
stimulate the secretion of the gastric juices, and excite the 
peristaltic action of the membranes. All of these we find 
in the Vade Mecum water, also the carbonates which be- 
come salts by action of the gastric juices, iron to enrich the 
blood, purifying sulphates to soothe irritation and allay 
inflamation, carbonic acid to lighten the pressure, stimu- 
late and aid digestion. These should be taken to preserve 
health, and must be taken to restore it. 



PHYSICANS LAY NO CLAIM TO THE ART OF BLENDING 
THESE ELEMENTS EQUAL TO THE NATURAL. 

We state upon authority THAT IN NO OTHER WATER can so many of the 

■^ELEMENTS NECESSARY TO HEALTH. BLENDED IN SO PERFECT A MANNER, BE FOUND.

Many people believe th;it Lithia is the sole remedy for 
diseases of the kidneys, bladder and urethra. That being 
so, they will find their specific in the Vade Mecum water. 
But there are other valuable agents. 

"Calcic waters, especially those rich in carbonate of 
lime and carbonic acid, prove decidedly beneficial in 
diseases of the urinary apparatus, such as catarrh of the 
bladder, gravel and calculus, and are even preferable to 
alkaline waters. They also prove valuable in gastralgic 
dyspepsia and diabetes mellitus." From Dr. Walton's 
"Mineral Springs," page 268.

acting as a purgative, diuretic, diaporetic and tonic. More 
remarkable still, these elements are so mixed as to be self

We hesitate to come before the public, this early in our career with all the curative qualities of the Vade 
Mecum Water. What we have stated may strike some as exaggeration. If such should be your thought, 
we can but invite you to read the following estimates put upon it by physicians who have 
seen, and testimonials of patients who have felt the benefits which cannot be exaggerated. 



After quite an extended ex^rience of prescribing and 
notingf results of the various mineral waters, I unhesitatingly 
think this water the best general renovator and " builder up " of 
them all. For scrofula, catarrh and blood diseases generally it is 
almost a specific. Too much, in my opinion, cannot be said of the 
curative properties of the Vade Mecum water. 

D. N. DALTON, M. D. 

Winsto-n, N. C, October 10, 1900. 

Bethania, N. C, Jan. 5, 1901. 
The V;:.de Mecum Water has a wide range of usefulness in 
the field of therapeutics. It is especially indicated in the diseases 
de- -nding upon glandular inactivity of the alimentary canal, the 
liTt and the kidneys. In habitual constipation, jaundice and 
srae-Ja it is i/ie water par excellence. It is also a valuable agent 
ia the .;^eatment of scrofula, rickets, glandular enlargements and 
sandry phenomena depending upon mal-nutrition and blood

In the Vade Mecum water we have a combination that must 
certainly prove of service in treatment of most of our so-called 
chronics, especially rheumatic disorders, uric and lithic acid 
diathesis of plethoric and irritable systems, dyspepsia and head- 
ache with torpid bowels (biliousness so-called) anemia, chlorosis 
and uterine diseases. It has proved of service in my practice, and 
I have great confidence in it and shall continue to prescribe it in 
conditions as above noted.

Gentlemen :— After using forty bottles of the Vade Mecum 
Water, I am prepared to say that for indigestion, sluggish liver 
and acidity of the stomach, with which I have been troubled for 
months, I find it the most satisfactory of all mineral water.s 
(L,ithia, Sulphur and Tate's) I have used. I am not prepared to 
discontinue its use yet. I have no trouble with the ailments 
mentioned, yet I want to let the recovery be complete. I have 
never felt better in my life, and I am hopeful that my cure is 
complete. I allow no opportunity to pass in which I can help 
yoii and lunnanity. I will continue the use of the water for some 
time to come. I thought Harris Lithia could not be excelled, but 
Vade Mecum knocks it out. I am enthusiastic in its praise, 
and recommend it to all sufferers from above named ills.

IN HIS 89TH YEAR. 

Winston, N. C, Oct. 22, 1900. 
I have been afflicted with catarrh for 10 years, for 2 years 
past could not hear with satisfaction. I tried different waters — 
Buffalo Eithia, The White Sulphur of Mt. Airy, Warren County 
Water and Moore's— also all kinds of medicine recommended for 
catarrh, including Hall's Catarrh Cure. Several different 
physicians treated me ; but I got no relief until I used Vade 
Mecum Water. It has done me more good in four weeks than 
all other remedies in years. I am in my 89th year, and have 
gained seven pounds since I began to use this water. It has given 
me a new lease on life. In all my long life I have never known 
such a remedy. It is a blessing from God, intended by him to 
heal the people.

dropsies, chronic skin diseases, constipation and many other 
ailments. J. W. SLATE, M. D. 

FORMER OWNER OF OUR SPRING. 

Vade Mecum Springs, Sept. 26, 1900. 
I have lived in Stokes County for 30 years — the past 10 or 12 
years on Charles and John Moore's place— and during the time I 
used Moore's Spring Water off and on all the time. I have been 
afflicted with fistula, constipation and eczema for 12 or 13 years. 
My leg-s and arms were broken out badly. I tried everything- and 
could get no cure. In December 1899, I moved to the Vaden 
Spring, now called "Vade Mecum Springs," and began to use the 
water. I am now cured of all these troubles. The eczema passed 
off after I began to bathe with and drink the water. I took no 
medicine, and know that my cure was affected by this water. It 
is a powerful laxative. W. H. VADEN.

Gentlemen : — For the past two years, up to within the last 
month, I had been a great sufferer from a case of chronic nervous 
indigestion, finding no relief until through the advise of a person- 
al friend I began the use of Vade Mecum Water, and its effect on 
me within the short time of one month has been wonderful, 
having been relieved entirely of my trouble by its use. I take 
great pleasure in giving you this testimony of its merits and 
efficiency for stomach and liver troubles. Since I began the use 
of this water I have gained 23 pounds, and have reached my 
standard weight. Yours truly, B. A. NEWLAND. '

Gentlemen : — I have been troubled with nervous dyspepsia, or 
catarrh of the stomach, for the past ten years. Three months 
ago I began to use your Spring Water, and I believe it has 
afforded me more relief than all of the medicines I have taken in 
the last ten years. I have recently begun to gain flesh and now 
weigh more than ever before in all my life.

CLIPPINGS FROM THE PRESS. 



There probably never has been such a record of cures and 
beneficial results from the use of a mineral water in the same 
period of time. It goes without sayint,'- that here must grow up 
a g-reat and famous resort.— From Charlotte Observer, Febru- 
ary 17, 1901. 

It is well known that North Carolina is rich in natural 
resources, and especially in minerals. But it was not known 
that we had here a water, rich in every important mineral and 
so perfectly blended that it becomes at once a specific for the 
ills which one-half the human family is heir to.— From Twin 
City Daily, February 18, 1901. 

The publication of the analysis of this water on September 
14th, 1900, created profound impression, as North Carolina has 
nothing to compare with it.— From Raleigh News and Observer, 
March 17, 1901. 

The Vade Mecum has leaped into fame as a curative agent 
within the last year or two and gained a place in the estimation 
of the medical fraternity and public, that proves it to be a 
marvelous water. It seems to be the ideal combination of tonic, 
laxative, diuretic, blood purifier, and restorative nervine. The 
beauty of it is that it can be used at home and its real medical 
value is established by the cures it makes there. — From Web= 
ster's Weekly, June 13th, 1901. 

It is simply marvelous to look over the company's book of 
testimonia's and see what astonishing results have been re- 
ported. -From Durham Daily Sun, June 21, 1901. 



This mineral water lately discovered in Stokes County, has 
won a spontaneous popularit)'. The analj'sis shows 106 grains 
of mineral salts per gallon and is pronounced by eminent physi- 
cians to be the best laxative and healing- water in use. — From 
NeA-bern Journal, June 18, 1901. 

From reports it is learned that the Vade Mecum is to take the 
lead the coming season, that thousands o£ gallons of water arc 
being shipped all over the world. Excellent roads are being- 
constructed from the Spring to the railroad at Rural Hall. — 
From The Greensboro Telegram. 

It is an ideal place for a mineral spring. While Vade MeGU47- 
is not yet finished still it is now ready for visitors and non^ wj )' 
regret a visit there.— Ex. Lt. Gov. Reynolds, in the Unioi '^^ 
publican, June 20th, 1901. -M 

"Truth is that parfect word which knows no dece. oh," 
uttered by Rev. Jesse A. Ashburn and pronounced 'on. 
Champ Clark in the press at large to be the best de ion of 
truth that has ever been given : 

"Mj- Uncle's wife, who has been treated for yeai by physi- 
cians for a chronic disease of kidneys and bladde* ,has begun 
the use of this water and reports a rapid impro^icment."

Nothing can be more joyous and invigorating than to 
engage some of the company's burros and climb to Moore's 
Knob, 3,000 feet high, trace the hunters' trail to Tory Den 
and the Cascade, visit the Itacolumite Mines and the Rock 
House, run down to the Morotock Bend, or up the Pilot's 
Castellated Peak — reserving for another day, the Mill of 
the Revolution, Diamond Cave, Indian Spring, Cook's 
Wall and Iron Banks.

THE RAREST THING IN NATURE. 



You would say diamonds, and the answer would not be 
far from the truth, only one degree of kin removed. Ita= 
columite or flexible stone is the mother rock of diamonds. 
It is found nowhere in North America except at Vade 
Mecum Spring in the Sauratown Mountains, vStokes Coun- 
ty, N. C. 

It is strange that it appears at just one place in each of 
the s'x continents ; in the Itacolumi Mountains of Brazil, 
at Kimberly, South Africa, in the Ural Mountains of 
Europe, at the foot of the Himalaya Mountains, India, and 
near Melbourne in Australia; and at each of these mines of 
flexible sandstone, diamonds have been found in abun- 
dance. For vastness of deposit, beauty of structure, and 
flexibility of movement, none of the other world famed 
deposits equal this newly opened mine at Vade Mecum 
Spring. 

The Vade Mecum Spring Company has acquired all of 
this rare rock yci discovered, covering or underlying about 
IdOO acres, and is now mining and preparing it for the arts 



and museums, and for general stributation as souvenirs 
and curios. 

Visitors to this resort will see the only equipment on 
earth for tlie manufact ure of the various products of this 
rare material. 

It is useful in cutting and polishing marble and other 
stones, makes the best sand paper and whet rocks, a durable 
lining for furnaces, anJ cuts glass like diamond or emery. 
As an absorbant it has the same effect in the prevention of 
hydrophobia that is supposed to be peculiar to the mad- 
stone. And without doubt it is the most CURIOUS of all 
CURIOS found on our Planet. 

The company has been compelled to provide for the 
filling of orders by mail, selling bars of five different sizes 
at $0.25, $0.50, $0.75, $1.00 and $2.00 respectively, with 
50% additional for postage. It is the wonder and ad- 
miration of everyone. You cannot find it except at 
Vade Mecum vSprings.
