Dr. T. L. Kiohols and Mrs. Mary S. Gove ISTichols, have leased for the term of five years, the spacious and beautifully situated Water Cure Estab¬ lishment, known as the Yellow Springs Water Cure, at Yellow Springs, Miami township. Green county, Ohio; on the railroad between Xenia asd Springfield, about seventy miles north-east of Cincinnati, and accessible - by all the great routes of western travel.
The village of Yeiion^ .^pri^o-is is one of the pleasantest in south-western Ohio. The country is broken and picturesque; the climate delightfiiil; the air of singular salubrity, with an entii'e freedom i'rom malaria. Its remarkable healthfulness, and the beauty of its scenery, have made it for many years a resort for invalids. It is the site of Antioch College, the great liberal college of the West, which, under the presidency of Hon, Horace Mann, with a faculty of eminent ability, proffers to both sexes equal advantages in obtaining, at a nominal price, a thorough education.
The Water Cure Establishment, with accomodations for over one hun¬ dred persons, is situated on the side of a beautiful ravine, about half a mile from the village and college buildings. It. is surrounded by forest trees and gai'dens ; springs of living water gush from the hill sides; a little river runs through the glen, and there are pleasant and secluded walks for amusement or meditation. It is a sylvan retreat, surrounded by natural beauties.
We name this place, to which Providence has guided us, Mbmnonia,, from the Mystic Statue on the N"ile, which saluted the rising Sun with music. So would we salute with our Social Harmony, the dawn of a ISTew Era for Humanity. Here we open, ou the 1st of April, 1856, a School of the Progressive Union, for Health and Education; for Physical, Mental and Spiritual development; ana a training and preparation, intcmnl and external, for the True Life of a Harmonic Society.,
To the wearied, exhausted, and diseased, who have yet a recuperative vitality, we offer a home, Avhere rest, pure air and food, exercise, the processes of Water Cure, congenial society, and all natural and spiritu.al Hygienic ek.nents, will restore them to the.Physical Harmony of Health.
To our friends who wish to prepare themselves for a Ti-ue/Societj'-, by the development of all their faculties, we offer a School of Science, Lite¬ rature, Art, and Industry, which Avill enable them to " Give froiA all faculties, to all faculties; "—the law of Progress in Passional Harmony.
Memnonia will be a School of Health; a School of Progress; a School of Life. We wish to gather here, as in a carefully cultured nursery, the germs of a new society. [Over.
