Kalispell is a young and growing city 4t over 2,000 inhabitants in which the Drat building was erected in May, 1891. '.. the geograpioal center of the Flat ,*s4d valley, and a divisional point on the main line of the Pacific extension of the Great Northern railroad. Several miles of side track, a round hous e, coal yards, and a freight depot have already been built, and a handsome two story brick and stone passenger depot, which when completed, will be the finest on the line of this road west of St. Paul, is now tinder construction. Steamers plying on the waters of Flathead lake and river rea-h the head of nuvigatiun at laslis rell, thus affording transportation faril ities to the Noit.,ern Pacitfic railr ad. The construction of a new railroad has been commenced from the mynini cen ters of the state to the immense coal fields in the northern p-rt of the Flat head val oe, which ,a:sin:g through Ktal ispll, will give lhy-r the ap and direct communication with Butte, tolena anid all points south, and op-n a ready mar ket for products of the valley, all of which, from her geographical location, will necessarily center at Kalispell; while the natural grades from the mrnes and coil fields of the surrounding coun try, the cheap and unlimited supply of fuel, together with the great water power at her very doors, will make Kal iepell the smelting center of this portion of theetate. It is already thesopply point for the army of minero and pros pector: oterating in the North and South forks and the i'oy!tern li tin in: region:, and ':it't her three strong natioral baho:+. the rian have ino rival as the tinnnr:ial center of the whole Flatthe:ad region.

The Flathead valley, ten years ago an almost unknown region, the home of the savage and 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 cele. b a e I Red River Valley of the North in t se superior quality of its cereals. It is the o rly agricultural section in the state o' Montana, where crops can be raised n ithout irrigation. Vegetables of all kinds re grown i. 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 seol in the riots mineral di tricts to the east, west a d south, the farmers of tha Flathead valley will soon be classed among the wealthiest and most influen tailof this new countrr. Wheat averages thirty five bushels per acre, oats sixty bushels, barley forty bushele, rye thirty bushels, potatoes 400 bushb's, cabbage 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 numerous branches, making a total of over C00 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 $2.50 per aore. According to the state aud;tor's report, of the 103,489,283 feet of lumber cawed in the st ite during the year 1891, 100,. 0,0,000 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 roeCs are alrerdy building, and the de. velol.ment of this resource alone will render this section the Pitt:buag of the northwest. Adjoining those imm'nse bodies of coal lie large tracts o; oil laud, which g ve promies of equa ing the rich petroleum fields of Pennsylvania. Natural gai has also been discovered in this region. Underlying a large portion of the valley, a thirty-foot stirt um of the finest qual ty of fi.e clay is found, which o.f'rs excep. tional opportunities for the manufao ture of potuevry, and affords the brick maker a convent nL and unlimi el sup pliy for his kiln. 'Common and iressed brick of a most super;or qualiy have b:en made from this clay, and numer ous handsome buildirga throughout the va ley stand as monumen a to this in dustry.
