The strike was over in Leadville, and though far from being as bustling and busy a camp as it formerly had been, was still " the greatest mining camp on earth."

ExcFaRrs from E. V. Smalley's writ ings: "Montana has many special advantages. - Farming in connection with stockraising is always profita ble. A man who works only enough land to support his family will soen become independent in Montana, from the increase of his stock, which cost practically nothing to raise. It used to be a saying that it cost more :to raise a chicken in Montana than a steer, and this was not very wide of the mark. We can assure farmers .who want to enmgrate to Montana and who have sufficient capital to start with in a moderate way, that they will have no trouble in finding excellent openings, either to buy out old settlers or take up government land, where irrigation is practicable, and where there is an abundance of open pasture." MONTANA is but little known in the east as compared with her sister ter ritories, which have enjoyed the pat ronage of the Northern Pacific rail road. This great trans-continental road has, during the past few years put forth its best...

Choicest Portion of Montana Some Facts of Interest for the Intend ing Settler-The Fertility of the Valleys and Hills-Great Pro mises of Wonderful lDevel opment in the Future. Wr.itten for the Teibn ne: A few years ago Montana was almost unheard of: to-day she is attracting more general attention than any other territory in the North-west. Perhaps if one por tion of Montana is watched to-day with more breathless interest than another by argus-eyed capitalists all the country over it is this town and its immediate surround ings. This being so, it may not be here out of order to give a description of some of the best portions of Northern Montana for the benefit of those who seek a good place to settle in, but do not know where to find it. Leaving Bismark, (Dak.) on a passenger boat, we steam up the broad bosom of the Missouri, a distance of 1,200 miles by wa ter. (It is much less by land as the river is very tortuous.)

MATERIALS AND METALS Great Falls Surrounded by Various Building Materials and Many of the Precious Metals. The limits of this paper will not allow more than a cursory glance at the mineral riches and geological advantages, shown and exhibited by nature's own hand within a radius of fifty miles of Great Falls. It is not within my province in the present article to enlarge on the magnificent water power of the townsite, nor to treat on the agricultural facilities of the surrounding localities, though both have to be consil ered in the cost of production of metals, precious or otherwise. I only need say that nature has furnished the useful and precious metals, the necessary fluxes and uiel, and also the necessary motive power. More could not have been done by nature unaided, it only needed man with knowl edge how to collect these bounties and how to use them for the varied industries of the nineteenth century. COAL.

Alone he sat at the break of day In his cabin alone and drear. Sleep had not come its tribute to pay The last night of the dying year. His heart was sad, as he looked back On the year, and on years before. As over the past he revived the track Of his wand'rings, so long and sore. The faces of those he loved at home Came up, passed in fond review. The father who warned him not to roam And his mother, so loving and true. The brothers, then boys, now grown up men Had remained through all the years His sisters, the girls, he called them then, Women, with wives' hopes and fears. How is it with him this new year morn, This day of the holiday wish, Why is he sad, and why does he mourn Whats the cause of his soul's anguish? Do his thoughts of home depress him so Have his wanderings such an effect As to make ...

MANUAL TRXINING SCHOOLS. c: ti Written for the Tribune by TV. F. Wheeler. a] "The school of the future that is to dig nify labor, that is to generate power, where C the brain informs the muscle, where the S( mind, the eye and the hand constitute an is invincible tripple alliance, will be the ni manual training and educational school S combined." It should be a public school, and should til be a part of all our public schools wherev- hi er practicable. It is industrial as well as aR educational. As the apprentice system tp has been destroyed in America, this insti- ar tution will take its place, and give us T skilled laborers in every department of t labor. It is teaching through things in- aC stead of through signs of things. As an i old saw mill man once said to so me: er "You can't learn to tend a saw by reading P1 a book, but you must do it yourself." It p1 is teaching by object lessons, the method in of the kindergarten system, and naturally succeeds it in the course of educatio...

It A PROFITABLE INDL STRY. SNovel MIeans oat Ltvlihood In Whtle * Citizens of Detroit are Engaged. [Detroit YFst and Tribune.] There is an enterprise carried on in EDetroit which is not generally known, and never appears in the statement of the city's varied prosperous industries. Its novelty is such that it has never as yet attained the dignity of-a name. It is carried on when a imajority ef citizens are asleep. Those en tgaged in it prosper upon the carelessntss and misfortunes of others. Their income defies definite pre. iction, but can be depended on for a iandsome return on the capital invested. The few engaged in this industry might Tbe termed "fighters." The pioneers in the business were gas-lighters. Scarcely one of their number, who has been en gr.ged with the craft for any consider able length of time. has failed to find one or more articles which afforded a handsome addition to his regular in come. Almost every night there was a valuable find or two, and as a knowl 'edge ...

WASHIGTON LETTER. iFrom Our Regular Correspondent. WVAHIxGTOX, Dec. 4, 1886. Since I last wrote you congress met, and amid its usual cordial greetings and floral tributes, read the president's message and went to work. On opening day large t crowds of people, not deterred by unpro pitious weather, filled the galleries and looked down with interest and amusement s upon the scenes enacted on the floor. In a the house for an hour before the gavel I fell, groups of members crowded the cloak I rooms, blockaded the aisles, chatted, laughed, exchanged congratulations on success in the recent elections on condo- 5 lences upon defeat. Victors twited the e vanquished, and defeated members jok- t ingly commiserated with victors upon their G failure to throw off the burden of public S] life. ci The senate, which is never given to iE demonstration under any circumstances, ii met quietly and shook hands as if only t separated yesterday, instead of four months ai ago.

GREAT FALLS TRIBUN 82 VOL. 2, GREAT FALLS, MONTANA' ERRITORY, SATURDAY, JANUARY 8, 1887, NO 34 Loaded for Lynx. About six miles above town, on bun river, Howard Criss, while out hunting, killed a large lynx. He was exhibiting this homely-shaped, but beautifully furred trophy to admiring hunters Tuesday. Sun river valley, in this vicinity, seems to ibe quite a rendezvous for felines. Trial of Strength. Last Tuesday, Joe Peeper made a wager with J. G. Henry, that his horse could out pull the latter's. Accordingly each horse was in turn, hitched to a heavy freighting wagon, loaded with five men and a half a ton of coal. All the wagon wheels were locked. The contest was decided in favor of Peeper's horse which managed to stir the load about six inches. Painful Rumor. It has been reported here that Mr. W. Nicoll, the well known rancher of Ming's coulee, has not been heard of since he left here about a week ago, for Choteau. Con siderable solicitude is felt for his safety, as the horse wh...
