Linn county is bounded on the north
by the north fork of the Santlam river.

connect with the C. .'- X. W. road at
Boise City, Idaho, making another'
transcontinental route, and opening
up some ot the Iniest vall.ys in tins

some of Linn county's best and pros

Six miles tip the Santlam river from
Lebanon, are the Waterloo falls, one of
the iest natural water-powers in the
State. Here is a very desirable loca
tion for any kind of manufacturing es
tablishments, especially lumber, as
large bodies of timber lie adjacent easy
of access. There Is now on foot, under
the direction of Mr. John Wirt, a very
plausable scheme to organize a mauu
facuring colony for this place, and we
iK'lieve it Is only a question of time
when this great power will be utilized
to the benefit of the entire county. At
Waterloo Is also to lie found oije of the
finest soda springs that ever gushed
out of the solid rock. It attracts many
tourists and invalids annually.
