Carns, W. J. & Son. - These gentlemen are the proprietors of the " Fountain House," which they purchased three years ago, refitting and furnishing it throughout with all modern improvements, baths, etc., and it is now conducted in connection with the " Magnetic Springs House." This charming and healthful resort is located in a beautiful valley, eight miles from Ithaca and Cayuga Lake, and has an altitude of 2,000 feet above tide water. It has exquisite scenery, fine roads and a pure atmosphere, besides its magnetic mineral water, and is an ideal locality for the hunter, fisherman and tourist. The famous Magnetic Springs have attracted great attention from every part of the country. The water is highly impregnated with magnetic properties, and many are the cures that have resulted from its use. The water is shipped to all parts of the United States, and has been found to give great relief and often cures that puzzle to medical science, diabetes; also having cured many other chronic diseases. The proprietors make a point of the excellent table which they are enabled to place before their guests, they having extra facilities for obtaining pure milk, newly churned butter, vegetables, etc., fresh from their own farm, and with the best meats and fruits from the city markets. The rooms are all large, well lighted, ventilated, and connected with the office by electric bells, and the service is unsurpassed.
