on Maple Avenue will be open to the public tomorrow afternoon and

The spring which they have access to comes free and sparkling from
the treasure house of mother earth. It is one of the best of its
kind in Western New York. It contains all of the necessary ingredients
to place a person in a good healthy condition.
In arranging for the Sanitarium no expense has been spared in making
it a first class institution. It is fitted up in the very best order
with all the modern appliances of an Electro-Hydropathic Institution.
Every precaution has been taken from a sanitary point to prevent
the transmission of diseases. Mrs. Kneebone has been very fortunate
in the selection of her aides. She has secured the services of Mrs.
O.M. Sweet, of Jamestown, a graduate of the Malenberg Hydropathic
establishment of Jamestown and has had an extensive experience in
this kind of work.
The management of the institution will be under the direction of
Mr. J. H. Westcott, of Buffalo, a man who comes here with unquestionable
experience and attainment in his line of work. Mr. Westcott is a
graduate from the St. Louis Magnetic and Hydropathic College, and
brings the highest recommendations as to ability and character.
He is a man worthy of the position he holds. He handles his patients
with care and also with the ability to give them just the treatment
they need. On the whole hi is an educated and refined man and pleases
all with whom he comes in contact. There have been some invitations
distributed, but of course some have been overlooked. All who have
may consider this notice as an invitation to the opening.
