The North Montana Fair associa

tween the Great Falls and Canada
and the Great Northern railroad
tracks, about one-half mile from the

hundred yards from the track of the
other, thus offering horsemen from

of the compass, every advantage and
convenience in unloading and load

The association's regulation track
is of a light sunny soil, almost iden

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,

total value of mining plants, 1405,
900,500 made up of buildings, rail
roads, machinery, underground im

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.
From the statistics it appears the
labor employed in the actual produc
tion of precious metal is better paid
and more productive, in fact, than in
any other industry thus far reported
in the bulletins issue! by the Elev
enth Census. 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.—

He singed his eyebrows and his nose,
This hero of my rhyme,
Blew off a linger and two toes,
A sisser spoiled his bran new clothes,
The punk destroyed his striped hose,
And yet, in spite of all his woes,
He had a bulk time.—Bazar.
