GREAT FALLS, MONTANA .
GREAT FALLS is located at the Falls of the Missouri which furnish the greatest available water power on the Continent. Is within seven miles of the most extensive COAL and IRON district in the West, immediately beyond which are rich GOLD, 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 is especially adapted by its natural resources and geographical position to become the leading: MANUFACTURING CITY between Minneapolis and the Pacific, and the principal RAILROAD CENTER of Montana. 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 picturesqe scenery.

We have al- c< ways had a good opinion of him and shall be sorry to learn that he too, has gone wrong. His absence may yet be satisfac torily explained. A party of Montana Central engineers o dined at the Park last Sunday. They fý were, E. H. Beckler, the brilliant resident sI engineer at Helena, Wm. Danforth, J. R. ' B. Coons, E. O. Goodridge, E. W. Cum- a mings, W. H. Hawes, W. E. Ellis, John c Tilly and W. P. Read. b Ladies can buy a new Singer sewing s machine for five dollars a month from C. P. Thomson, county agent at this place. f There are over one hundred Singers in a use for every one of any other machine t made and they are warranted to do the t best work. Run the easiest and last five i times as long as any other machine made tf A cemetery association should be organ- I ised to improve the grounds set apart for i that purpose. The tract comprises 820 acres well located, about four miles from town, on high ground which commands a grand view in every direction. At com paratively little expense trees could be set out and cared for, and they would add a hundred per cent to the beauty of the place. T. W. Murphy, proprietor of the Great Falls livery stable, quotes the following cash rates for feed: Horse to hay and grain per month, $27.; horse to hay, $12. 1 Transient rates: Horse to hay at noon, 50 cents; hay and grain, 75 cents;horsetohay and grain over night, $1; day board, $L25; I stockto -hay in corral, 40 cents a night with ample manger faCilities forfeeding. 1 These prices will be charged after Novem- 1 ber 15. 2t . The engineers of the Montana Central t railroad yesterday run a preliminary line t to Anaconda, through the canyon below Silver Bow. They will also run a line by I the Hump, which the engineers say is the c most feasible route, and no doubt will be adopted. After having completed the line 1 to Anaconda they will return to Butte and i expect to leave to-morrow for Great Falls. I -Miner. CASUAL. We cannot help being thankful for con tinued pleasant weather. To be sure ice is forming on the river, but it is time for that to begin. In New York a foot of t snow has fallen. Dakota rejoices in tem perature ten degrees below zero, while we scarcely need an overcoat except for long drives. I regret that the dog-faced-man discuss ion has come to a close without the ques tion being definitely settled. Let's hear from old dog-face himself. I am reminded by the "water" contro versy at Helena, of what Bob Burdette says of monopolies. He states that "mon opoly" is from two Greek words, mono, man, and pole, pole, meaning the man who has the pole. A monopoly, he adds, is a syndicate that I can't get into, when I do get in it is a philanthropic institution for the benefit of all mankind." In the Hel ena fight, each faction calls the other a "griading monopoly "-~"onspiracy" and "fraud." At present Woolston seems to be the mono who has the polo. Helena certainly needs a good water-supply. They need it to cook with. They can't use whis key for everything. Calgary was destroyed by fire a couple of weeks ago. But with such lessons be fore us every day our citizens cannot be aroused from their lethargy. I hope the people of Great Falls will show their appreciation of Mr. Ehrhart's enterprise in getting up a grand Thanks giving dinner in the afternoon and ball in the evening. The Park hotel cannot be too highly commended. It is a great card for Great Falls. Its reputation has already gone abroad throughout the territory. It has no superior in the west. I am glad to see tha:t the business men of Great Falls are progressive enough to advertise well. The TInutB E certainly appreciates the fact that its Gre.it Falls patrons are generous in that regard. While they are thius doing a good work for the paper and the town they are ac complishing still more for themselves. Our business men take no stock in the old fogy notion that money spent for adver tising don't pay. No investment brings larger returns. There is more truth than fiction in the last sad request of the dying editor who told his family not to bury him by the side of a brook, where babbling lovers would wake him from his dreams, nor in any grand cemetery, where sight-seers, coming over epitaphs, might distract him; but begged that he might be layed away to take his last sleep under the counter of some merchant who did not advertise in the newspapers. There, he said, was to be found peace, passing all understanding-a depth of quiet slumber on which neither the sound of the buoyant foot of youth nor the weary shuffle of old age would ever intrude. Religious Notes. Last Sunday the Rev. Clews, Episcopal minister from Fort Benton, was to preach in the morning, but owing to an unforseen event could not get Into the school house. It seems that the Wednesday evening pre vious, Rev. John Reid after conducting prayer-meeting, locked the building and put the key in his pocket, saying that he must leave it at Beachley's. He then in company with Mr. Ross called on a friend or two and forgetting all about the key went home with it. Between that time and last Sunday the choir met'at his house and practiced particularly with a view to help our Episcopal friend to make his ser vice pleasant. But Sunday came and Rev. John Reid went out to Sand Coulee a-foot to conduct the services there and it was not till after Sunday .school in the p. m.' that the key*M o Iuod. It had slipp d between the lining and his pocket. Rev. John Reid ogized toUihe other minis ter and offered him the evening service, S but the offer was not accepted. Rev. John Reid preached last Sunday night on "Hope." His discourse was ex cellent and full of an earnest christian spirit. In speaking about petty jealousy between individual churches and denom inations he said that each must of necessity have its own laws and opinions and said in etfect that it did not become one church to pick to pieces another or uphold its own opinions as the only correct ones above all others and he also said that it was not the church that saved a man, anyhow, but Jesus Christ. k At the Sunday school last Sunday p. m. there were 49 present. Christmas is coming and the Sunday C school scholars and friends are called upon to meet at the school house every Wed nesday at 6:30 p, m. to practice songs etc. for Christmas. There is to be a Christmas tree and music and songs and speeches and a good time generally at the end of the year. Prayer meeting Weodnesday nights. Let all come. Subscribe at Once.
