GREAT FALLS is located at the Falls of the Missouri which furnish the greatest available water power on the Con
tinent. Is within 7 miles of the most extensive Coal and Iron district in the West, immediately beyond which are rich Silver and Copper districts. It lays tributary the best agricultural and grazing part of the Territory, and the pineries of the Upper Missouri and tributaries. It has made more progress in the past 8 month.in proportion to its size than any other place in Montana, and is especially adapted by its natural resources and geographical position to become the leading manufacturing center between Minneapolis and the Pacific. The trip to Great Falls will amply repay tourists by the beauty of the scenery on the way, and they will find here the most magnificent series of waterfalls in the world, while the surrounding country is rich in picturesque scenery. To those wishing to improve property, lots will be sold at very reasonable prices. Fcr particulars address, H. 0. CHOWEN, AGENT.

SOT 8. G. 1 ULTON, General Agent. Sad, A RAMBLE. sist FO, THE TRIBUNE. The day was beautiful. Tle rich out glow of a September sun crowned the vine-clad hills and dimpled the val- 'Mc leys. It was one those clear, still str days when Nature united all her har monies in one grand hymn of thanks- a 1 giving unto Him who gave birth to grc nations, and whose eye is over all. ] This day of all others is the one me- cnt morial day in which I was ushered bet into this beautiful world, and as it annually rolls around I often seek a his secluded spot and give myself entire- ha' ly over to meditation. Our camp was situated on a small tributary of the Big Horn river. Sep tember 2, 1877, I shouldered my Win chester and stole quietly away from camp. I had traveled far up the mountain and over many beautiful parks matted with thick tufts of bunch grass, among which grew thousands of fragrant flowers. The cactus was in full bloom and the roses of purple and pink out shown their neighbor in brightness; the service berries were hanging in purple clusters and clus ters of wild plums were to be seen at short intervals. I had wandered on some distance when I suddenly found myself face to face with an almost impenetrable forest of evergreen and mountain spruce. I went on, push ing my way my way into its foliage passed on I was amazed at the soft carpet which yielded under my feet like down. The growth of pine cones and bows of a dozen years lay in one brown mass beneath me. How chang ed in there! The rays of the sun had not penetrated the foliage for years gone by. Those tall, stately trees stood like a mighty army awaiting some dreaded foe; not a leaf stirred; not a chirp of the Mountain thrush; even the little red squirrel was no where to be seen. The situatioi be came painful, and I could hear my own breathing. I moved slowly on; the tall trees, like sentinels, stirred not, but seemed to grow taller. Their trunks were limbless full eighty feet high and their tops were entwined and woven together like network. I stood before a large fallen tree, where a bear had furrowed out a large hole underneath- to shelter himself from the winter's blasts, What a cave! Large stones were unearthed and many were still within. Bones and skeletons of animals lay scattered around, showing this to be their home. I was meditating on Robinson Cru soe's lonely life and felt sure I was alone in the dense wilderness, when a shrill cry above me, which made the cold chills run over me, told me I was an intruder. Far above me, perched on a dead limb, sat a bald eagle with his head drooped below his shoulders, his head turned to one side a large, bright eye scanning me from head to foot. I could see his large claws grasping the limb, as he bent over to see me. He gave another series of screams and moved farther out on his perch to get a better view of me. His last call brought another to his side, much darker in color and larger, and when be perched himself on the limb it' almost broke under the weight. Then they both began to abuse me. They would scream, flop their wings, run up and down the limb as though meditating an attack. If ever a mor tal felt out of place I surely did and I turned and started along the base of the mountain, when they shouted all kinds of slang at me, such as: "Sneak off," "shoot the hat," "take a tumbie," and many other things they don't say in church. I felt relieved when once out' of their sight and hearing. I soonleft the dense timber and found myself wandering along under a perpendicular mass of rocks thousands of feet high, fringed with a few hanging juniper bushes and some wild pea vines, but higher up the whole mountain was destitute of any vegetation whatever. The bald rocks and the clay peaks glistened in the bright sunlight. While sitting thus, drinking in the beautiful seen ery, I beheld a black-horned ibex, the first I had ever seen, go bounding along from rock to rock, with a little kid by her side, which kept close to her. I sit there fully expecting each moment to see them lose their footing and come dashing down the precipice, but they crossed safely and were soon out of sight. I soon set out for camp, tired and hungry, where I arrived just as they were sitting down to a supper of veni son, bear and mountain grouse and plenty of trout. I soon related my adventure with the eagles. Some in sisted they could not talk, but I held out they could. A. ----- ---- .....
