Ira Myers returned from the east yes terday, bringing his family with him. He rejoices in the possession of a fine baby and is correspondingly happy. During his absence Mr. Myers visited points in Ohio and elsewhere. At each point he was questioned about Great Falls; its re sources, population etc. He says "a large influx of people from those places may be looked for in the spring. In fact Great Falls is becoming very widely and favoarbly known among our eastern peo ple and I should not be surprised to see our town rapidly fill up in the near future."
