WALTERt M ATIIESON. 359 North Main street. THE FLATHEAD VALLEY. The Flathead va!ley, ten years ago an almost unknown region, the home of the savage anti wild beast, to-day is the most productive section of the north. west, yielding per acre double the out put of Kansas, Iowa cr the Dakotas, and is the only section west of the Miss. issippi river which can rival the c3le b:a ol Red River Valley of the North in the superior quality of its cereals. It is th oi ly agricultural section'in the state o' Miontuna. where crops can be rfised without irrigation. Vegetables of all kinds rea grown it abundance, while apples, plums, peaches, cherries, pears, and the small fruits such as strawber ries, blackberries, goosebe -ries, raspber ries are be;ng raised successfully. With a ready market for all products of the soil in the rich mineral di tricts to the east, west a- d south, the farmers of tha Flathead valley will s)on be classed among the wealthiest and most influen 1 ailof this new countr -. Wheat averages thirty-five bushels per neare, oats sixty bushels, barley forty bushele, rye thirty bushels, potatoes 400 busheh-s, cabbege ten tons per acre, rutabagas thirty tons per acre. The Flathead river, with its tribu. taries--the North, South and Middle forks --the Stillwater and Whitefish rivers, with their nume -ous branches, making a total of over t.0) miles of log ging streams, all of which converge at Kalispell, flow through vast forests of pine, tamarack, fir, larch and cedar. Under the recent law enacted by con gress these boundless tracts of timber land can be purchased at 82.50 per acre. According to the state auditor's report, of the 103,489,283 feet of lumber sawed in the st rte during the year 1891, 100, 00,000t was sawed in M ssoula county, thus demonstrating this portion of the state's sul remacy in the lumber in dustry. In the northern portion of the valley are hidden vast measures of a superior quality of coal towards which the rail roads are already building, and the de velol ment of this resource alone will render this section the Pittebuag of the northwest. Adjoinining these immensa bodies of coal lie large tracts of oil land, which gveo plomisa of equaling the rich petroleum fihld- of Pennsylvania. Natural gat has also been discovered in this region. Underlying a large portion of the valley, a thirty-foot start um of the finest quality of fire clay is found, which offers excep tional opportunities for the manufac ture of pottevry, and affords the brick maker it convenia-n and unlimi el sup ply for his kiln. Coommon and pressed brick of a most superior quality have b-en natdo from this clay, and numer ous handsome buildings throughout the valley stand as monuments to this in dust ry. Montana's mineral output, whI Ih now surpasses I hat of any o her sa'e in the nui, n, will be largely augmIen ed by the development of the hidden treasures in the mountain ranges surrounding the Fla heI l valley. RiIch veins of goll, silver, a ,pper and lead, which hitve already bsen dis orv -rod, are attrae, ing the attention of the capiailes a who have invested largely in mining proper lies throughout this section, andi are rauidly iushini their develoutuena.
