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.

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.

A saloon was recently opened in
Mount Pleasant, Ohio, a temperance
stronghold. The citizens did patrol
duty around the place for a day or so
and then bought the place and made
a bonfire of it in the streets amid
great rejoicing.
Deacon Edwin S. Sutch, a promin
ent citizen of Roxborough, Penn., has
been missing for several days. Short
ly before his disappearance he was ac
cused of being unduly intimate with
his sister-in-law, and is supposed to
have left with that lady.
