The 'Little-Witwater' Home Gold Machine
Forsaking All That Tiresome Reef-Digging & Crushing, this Compact Homely Device Efficiently Recaptures the Glorious Old Prospector Days.
It Has a Closed Circuit of Pure Mountain-Stream Activating a Small, Sunny, Rich Alluvial Creek. the Water-Wheel Is Composed of Acceptable, Nostalgic Old-Time Panning-Utensils & a Gratifying End-Product Can Usually Be Expected.
(Upon Reflection, Judging by the Prosperity One Sees Around, Perhaps Quite a Number of People Here Have Something Like this Already!)
