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 progressin the past 8 months 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. O.

The Wonderful T.hi.nness of Shoets ol HIai:.nmzered Gold. [C..ic:i aCL NI.' vs-Journal.] "Any v an in this shop," said the gold-beater, "can Leat a gold dollar into tLo squares of four inches each. That would make 4(UU s l:are inches, or thirty-three and one-third square feet. To put the -,matter so that it may be comprehended by any one, we may say that two rooms, each sixteen and one third feet s 1uare, n. ay be carpeted with aiawl:ss s:ect of .old beaten from one single dollar. Rather a thin carpet? Well, yes, rather. It has beer eotinmated that 2"5,0.0 , heets of gold leaf go to make an inch. Two hundred sheets of uncommonly thin writing paper will make the same thickness, which shows us that it will require 1,400 sheets of gold leaf, placed one on the otiher, to make a sheet as thick as thin paper. "I buy the gold in the shape of grains, and molt it in my own cruciblee and furnace, right here in this room. The molten metal is poured into molds, which slhape it into bars about an in :h wide and six or seven inches long. Here is a bar thatI made this morning. It is worth z4ud." The bar was irregular in shape, and of a blurred and d.nuy color. It would -have been scorned by a ragpicker if discovered among the rubbish on the city dump. "'ihese bars we r:n through rolls a number of times until they are as thin as ordinary paper, -hwhn they are cut up into pieces a:; inch square, and handed over to the beaters to be beaten by hand into their proper thickness. Two hundred and fity sheets are beaten at one time. The sheets are placed in what is known as a mold, which is simply 25' sheets of parch. ment, inclosed in an cuter wrapper. The gold and the parchment are inter. leaved, the whole forming a bundle one inch thick by four inches aluare. This bundle is then placed ca the beater's slab, which must have a solid founda tion extending somo feet into the ground, and the whlole is beaten with a heavy iron hammer. The hammers range in weight froma four to sixteen pounds. When the first beating is complete the original inch squares have become four inch squares. They are now taken from the moll and each sheet is cut into four pieces, to undergc exactly the same process as at first This is continued until the leaf is as thin as we may safely make it." lannacy CauedmI by TWar. Dr, Le rand du Sanlle, a dis Hinuished authority on the subject of inanity, recently delivehred an interest in- lecture in the -:'tl'etr-ire on the in fluence of the siee of IParis in the pro duction o; mental di ease. For a few days after the declar:ti n of war there was a notable dimundion in the number of these cases; but as soon as it became known that the Prus ians were march ing on Iaris the anxity and alarm felt by the suburban population culminated in many instances in madness of a curi ous and ra. ely observed type- extreme melancholy, accompanied with stupor Sand dazed condition of the faculties. Three hundred and lifty thousand sub urban residents had to take refuge in Paris, where they found no other shel ter than that atinided by the railway carriages at the term iii, which soon be came densely crowded. Hunger and inan:tion swelled the stat-ti: s of insanity luring the siege all the more that wine was to be had in abundance, and the men of the National Guard spent the greater part of the P0 sous allowed them daily on drink, on which, in fact, they and many others lived during the last few days of the sieve. The "mania of inventions" be came very common at the same time. Gen. Trochu was constantly pestered with lunatics, who came to lay before him all manner of wild contrivances of their invention for the total and in stantaneous annihilation of the Prussians.
