Issues from the Hartfell mountain in the county of Annandale, Scotland. It is quite pure and pellucid; has a chalybeate and so strong a styptic taste, that it was suspected to contain alum; but, by being exposed to the open air, it becomes weaker, and is observed to be stronger in wet than in dry weather, so that it is mose probably a chalybeate; and on evaporation afforded 0.9 of vitriolated iron. Somepor-tion of iron is also suspended by carbonic acid.
This water is recommended in cases where chaly-beates are useful; in menorrhagia, fluor albus, gleets, old dysenteries, in diseases arising from relaxation, and in some circumstances of hectics. It sometimes at first produces giddiness, and consequently small quantities should be first used. A pint is a sufficient dose in one day. See Monro on Mineral Waters.
