Historical Note - Week of January 18th

Helena Independent, January 20th, 1889

Miles City Journal: When a railroad is built to Cooke City, which will probably be next year, the Soda Butte waters of that vicinity will become valuable property. These waters are especially valuable to consumptive patients. A gentleman says that at one time he was spitting blood, when he went to the spring and drank water three days, procuring a number of bottles which he filled in such a manner as to keep out air, and that his recovery was entirely due, he thinks, to the medicinal qualities of the water.
