REDWOOD CITY ENTERPRISE
Opening the Way for Increased Ship
ments by the Water Route.
REDWOOD CITY, Cal., June 14.—Sev
eral boatloads of lumber and a pile-driver
have been landed at the mouth of Stein
toerger Creek at its junction with Redwood
Creek. At this point there is a good
depth of water at all stages of the tide,
and a new steamboat landing will be es
tablished there, connecting with Redwood
City by a plank road now being built
across the marsh.
At present vessels of light draught de
liver freight right in town, but they can
only come in on the full tide. The new
landing and the road leading to it will ob
viate that difficulty as well as shorten the
distance and cut off some of the sharp
bends of Redwood Creek.
A regular steamer line has been in opera
tion since January, carrying freight and
passengers between here and San Fran
cisco. In addition bulky freight and a
large part of the hay crop of this locality is
now shipped from here on lighters towed
by steam tugs.
The new road to the Steinberger was de
cided on by the Town Trustees so as to
afford better facilities for cheap transporta
tion by water.

There is nothing^ like Hood's Sarsaparilla

purities, vitalizes and enriches the blood.
" I had bilious j fever 7 weeks and was

Hood's Sarsaparilla, and three bottles
built me up and made me perfectly well.
She begran to take it for catarrh and to
