Scarborough Water is obtained from two mineral springs which rise about a quarter of a mile from that town, in Yorkshire. One is a simple chalybeate water, similar to that of Tunbridge; while the other, which is chiefly frequented, contains, in addition to the iron, a considerable portion of purgative salt.

The Scarborough-water may be advantageously used, in the various complaints for which that of Cheltenham is recommended: the former is, however, chiefly employed as an alterative ; because few stomachs can support the large doses which are required to be taken, for producing a proper evacuation from the bowels.
