——— ANALYSIS OF “HEALING” WATER A report that wells in the Heathcote Valley might prove to have value in helping in the cure of invalids was disproved when a Chemical analysis of the water was recently obtained by the Heathcote County Council. In the report accompanying the analysis it was stated that the water could not have any healing effect whether used internally or externally. The matter was first, raised last August in a letter from Mr W. S. Wharton, secretary of the North Canterbury Hospital Board, to the Heathcote County Council explaining that he made enquiries about the warm spring water to be found in the Heathcote Valley. He said it was reported that the water had distinct healing properties. Mr F. J. T. Grigg, the Government analyst, in submitting an analysis of the water that was ■ completed recently, said that that water could not be regarded as “mineral” water. , The major constituent was common salt, together with bicarbonate of soda and lime, and there were smaller amounts of chloride and sulphate of magnesium.
