TWO DAYW .NADi.
A Large Attendance at the Great Falls Course- Adam's Cascade Wins the Citizen Stakes. Many people gathered Saturday after noon at the race-track to witness the races for the citizens'purse. Pool-selling went on actively and was conducted in a business-like way. The amount invested was large, all the sports in the city were present and rendered the scene very lively. The first race for a purse of $25 was betweenJoe Herring's Bobtail and Smith's Arab, a sorrel mare. John Doyle rode Bobtail and Lora L. Lux rode the sorrel mare. After a bad start, Bobtail soon took the lead and held it to the finish, winning easily. This race was declared void, on the ground that Bobtail started before his time, and the judges ordered the riders to the starting line. A good start was made for the next race, which was better contested than the first, but BIobtail was much the stronger and larger horse and came in some lengths ahead. Three horses ran for the race of the day-the stakes being $100 for the first horse and $50 for the second. The en tries were Marshy Adams' Cascade, Al Hockett's Pilot Boy and Ralph Horton's Grey Eagle. Adam's'mare was the favor ite in the pools, which sold in the propor tion of about $5 for first choice, $3 for second and 50 cents ,for third. A good start was made and the race was even from the beginning between Cascade and Pilot Boy. Coming near the finish the jockey laid the whip freely on Cascade, .who made a spurt and won by a length. Racing was resumed yesterday.. The first race was between John Lacross' mare Daisy and Lovell's bay mare Cora. The start was even and fair. Cora took the lead from the start and came in about three lengths ahead, winning the $40 staked on the race. The owners rode. The next race was a match between Lovell's mare and Al Vine's horse Raven for $10. Lora L. Lux rode Cora which won easily, beating Raven by five lengths. The day's racing concluded with a pony race for a purse of $5, entrance $1. Four ponies were entered, including those owned by John Doyle, John Lacross, Smith and Joe Herring. The riders were Arthur Nebel, John Lacross, Smith, and Lora L. Lux, who rode Joe Herring's gray pony. This was a lively race, the ponies being very well matched. Lora Lux rode with considerable skill and succeeded in piloting Joe Herring's horse to victory. The attendance was large and the people enjoyed the sport consider ably. SPRAY OF THE FALLS.

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 its tributaries. It is especially adapted by its natural resources and geographical position to become the leading manufacturing city between Minneapolis and the Pacific ocean, 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 water-falls in the world, while the surrounding country is rich in picturesque scenery.
