THE WATERS.

Harrogate may justly challenge Britain and all Europe for the great number and variety of its Mineral Waters. Within the district there are no less than 87 known springs, differing in strength and quality, the " Bogs Field " alone containing 36. Of these waters, 16 are used for internal administration, the remainder being devoted to bathing purposes.

The waters may be divided into two groups : Sulphur Waters and Iron Waters ; and of each group there are several varieties, as is shown in the following classification :
