Saratoga Springs has become the favorite convention town of the United States for national organizations of every kind. It owes this distinction partly to its natural advantages and partly to its unequaled—indeed, we might say, its unapproached—facilities for the entertainment of such gatherings. Nature has made it the great health resort of this continent and one that is not surpassed in its comforts and attractions anywhere in the world. Situated on a plateau at the end of the foot-hills of the Adirondacks, a region deservedly famed for its salubrity, it has an elevation of three hundred and twelve feet above tide water level and is swept by the breezes of the great northern forests. The celebrity of Saratoga is, however, largely owing to its natural mineral waters.
