-------------------------------------------



Formel, Julius Z., was born in the city of Santiago, Cuba, and received his literary education there and at Pennington Institute, New Jersey, having taken his degree of B. A. in Havana prior to coming to the United States. He then studied in the University of Pennsylvania and the New York College of Pharmacy, from which he graduated in 1872, and afterward opened a drug store in New York city, which he conducted for several years. In 1889 he came to Saratoga Springs and engaged in the establishment of a plant for the extraction of carbonic acid gas from the waters of the Seltzer spring. He established the Saratoga Carbonic Acid Gas Co. and is one of the stockholders of that concern. At present he is vice-president and general manager of the Champion Carbonic Acid Gas Co., which he organized. This business has assumed a flattering magnitude, owing to the talent and energy of Mr. J. Z. Formel. This new industry has been of great benefit to Saratoga Springs. He has perfected two patents, one to purify the gas and another to purify the waters, by a mechanical process, without abstracting any of their fine qualities or adding any foreign ingredients to them. By this process the water ëan be kept for any length of time as fresh as when it leaves the spring. Mr. Formel is an ardent Cuban patriot, and has always been a warm friend and aid to the Cuban Junta. Mr. Forniel married first Margaret Byron, who died, leaving two children: Julius and Bella. He married second, Cordelia E. Heraghty, daughter of Peter Heraghty, and their children are Adrian, Fernando, Madeleine, Eugenie, Leonora, Inez and Theodora.
