The high water is due to the ex
traordmary snow fall in the foot
hills the past winter. The warm
weather is melting the snow and
the water is coming down faster
than the river can take care of it.
Hut for the capacious maw of the
lava beds the rush of the water
would be likely to do damage at

of a mill race.
On the uper reaches or the river
where the flats arc overflowed the
current is comparatively sluggish.
No damage is done by the over
