Handsome Purses Hung Up for the Speedy Ones—Water Alum dant, Buildings New and Convenient. Lying between the Sun and Miss ouri rivers, but a short distance above the confluence of the former with the latter stream, and just two miles northwest from the Park hotel in this city is a large body of land as level and as smooth as the placid waters of Broadwater bay. The most central and level portion of this beautifull valley has been se lected and purchased by the North Montana Fair association of Great Falls and by them converted into the association grounds and race course and which when fully completed, equiped and ready for business will be second to no association track in the state or west. With the same untiring energy and enterprise and the determination not to be outdone that has character ized the Cataract city and her people from the time of its infancy to the present day, the North Montana Fair association have planned, pushed to the front and perfected the following most excellent programme for the three days' racing of its first annual meeting, commencing Monday, the 17th, and ending Wednesday, Aug ust 20.

The North Montana Fair associa tion's track lies immediately be tween the Great Falls and Canada and the Great Northern railroad tracks, about one-half mile from the stock yards of the former amd one hundred yards from the track of the other, thus offering horsemen from the north as well as from other points of the compass, every advantage and convenience in unloading and load ing their stock at the grounds. The association's regulation track is of a light sunny soil, almost iden tically the same as that of Miles Ciiy, which under the management of Messrs. Robert Vaughn, U.II.Church ill and Julius Ilorst, the committee on buildings and improvements, lias been so admirably graded and ar ranged that its drainage is perfect, and even after the hardest rain will in a few hours be in working order. The water suply is all that could be desired, the water being forced from Sun river by thé stationary en gine of the Canada and Great Falls railroad into a huge tank of the United States Wind Engine and Pump company's make. Of a capa city of 25,0()0 gallons, and from whence it is distributed by small pipes to all portions of the grounds. The improvements, consisting of the judges and grand stand, stables, pool rooms, saloon, restaurant and secre tary's oflice and all substantial build ings, constructed from the best Mon tana lumber, which, like lier horses, is noted both far and near for its staying qualities and power of endur ance. The grand stand is J 00 feet long by thirty wide and will seat 1,51)0 people, with a restaurant and secre tary's office underneath, and an an nex on the west side to be used as a kitchen, at the cast end will be erect ed a pool room and saloon buildiug seventy-five by thirty feet. The stables consist of one hundred box stalls twelve by sixteen feet. Up to the present time fully à 18,000 lias been expended and fully §5,000 more will be required to put everything in order. And horsemen from all sections of the country must rest as sured tliat every prepcration is being made for their coining and the best possible stock. entertainment for their PRODUCTION OF MINKS. STATISTICS SHOWING THE YIELD FOK THE IJVST FISCAL YEAH. Washington, July 17.—A bulletin relating to the production of gold and silver in the United States dur ing the calendar year of 1 SSO was issued from the "census office to d ay, The bulletin shows the production of bullion during the year 1880 was; Gold 1,590,809 ounces, United States coinage value 832,880,744; silver 51, 354,851 ounces, United States coin age value $00,300,938. In gold this is nearly 28 percent of the world's pro duction, and in silver 41 per cent. The bulletin says: The number of gold and silver mining claims, or "lo cations" conionly called mines, in the United States, is practically beyond computation. The names of 100,000 such claims or mines, were recieved by the census oflice. Put upon lim iting the investigation to producing mines, mines working, but not pro ducing mines temporarily stopped, but which produced andupon tabula ting only such mines as made produc tion the returns or labor statistic list was reduced to 0,004; expenditures during the year, including wages, value of supplies, etc., #63,451,1536. total value of mining plants, 1405, 900,500 made up of buildings, rail roads, machinery, underground im provements, mine supplies and casl and the estimated value of mines ex clusive of the above items 8338,362 731; value of mills and reduction works, 8480,325,438. Of 0,004 mines on which returns of production on labor statistics made, 268 reported idle, 1,000 reported working but not producing bullion; twenty-eight producing 8500,000 worth of bullion; forty four producing 8250,000 to 8500,000; fifteen are producing 8100, 000 to 250,000; ninety-five from 850, 000 to 100,000; 437 from 810,000 to 850,000; 408 81,000 to 810,000 and 1,610 less than 81,000.

The average earnings of all persons employed at gold and silver mines (57,635) was 8725, while the average output per man amounted to 81,723 per year.— Helena Minnig Journal.
