An eastern exchange, in puffing a
water-wheel says: "It is estimated
that turbine water-wheels have, since
their invention, saved the country
over 8300,000,000 in the one single
item of fuel." But the paper does
not calculate how many families have
been driven to the verge of starvation
by those same labor-saving inventions,
300,000,000 taken from the wood

and if the proportion due to ihis vi

The Yreka Journal referring "to the ,
Klamath river says:
We cannot see why Klamath rivar
would not alFord a profitable enterprise
in the salmon canning business, as
that stream abounds with this fish.
We suppose the difficulty is in get
ting into the river from Humboldt
bay, with vessels for shipping, but a
late successful effort by a small steam
er, promises to make the stream ac
cessible. The Klamath is "the largest
stream in California, and carries
an immense body of water from
the mouth of the Scott river to the
coast, and is quite a Jarge stream all
through this country up to the Big
and Little Klamath Jakes, in southern
Oregon, which feed 5t.
From what we know of rfihat river
and its tributaries we judge it to be
one of the most productive uivers an
that line on the coasfc.
