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.

GGreat Falls, lVontana.
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 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.
