Waynesville, Ga. Aug. Mr. Dan T. Cowart, well known Waycross man,
announces that negotiations for the Mineral Springs located near Waynesville in
this county have been closed. Four-hundred and seventy-one acres of land was
included in the sale.
These springs have a swimming pool, a colonial mansion, and an artesian well
on the grounds. The water of the springs, according to information received from
Mr. Cowart, have been analyzed and the report of analysis show that they are
both healing and beneficial, which brings to mind the old story, supposedly to
have been related by "old timers" of this section to the effect that
the Indian tribes of ancient times cured all their ailments with the waters of
these springs. Plans for improvement are under consideration and temporary bath
houses are now being constructed to accommodate the swimming enthusiast on
