sequlbo, British Guiana. The peipendlcular height of the fall is 741 feet, or
nearly five times that of Niagara. The width varies from 350 feet In the dry
season to 400 feet in the rainy season, and (he depth of water passing over
similarly ranges from a few feet to 20 feet. Even in very dry seasons, the
river has a depth of 3b feet about a quarter of a mile above the fall. The
face of the fall is of sandstone with a capping of harder conglomerate, it is
suggested that the falls may be used to provide power, and it is pointed out
that the chief fall alone would supply 2,125,000 horsepower.
