"Electric Springs Water. Drink your way to health using Nature’s own beverage. Especially recommended for all kidney and bladder troubles, diabetes, sour stomach, dyspepsia, etc."
"Invalids, the Oakes Hotel is now ready for business. The Electric Springs bath house is in full blast where baths are given with pure Electric Springs water, red hot if desired. This hotel is situated in the city of Warrensburg, one half mile from the (old)courthouse, yet it is in the wilderness, in the midst of wild scenery. Do you know that this water has cured diseases that have baffled the skill of the medical fraternity for the past 2000 years?"

There was also a race track located between Electric Springs and today's modern Highway 50.
