"Several attempts have been made by philanthropic persons to get Calam ity" to 'go into some home whery she would be provided for and wherb she would be safe from the snare of the tempter, but you might as well .try to make, a pet out of a timber wolf. She has been foot-loose all her life, and the quickest way to break her heart would be to take away her, peculiar and eccentric ideas of liberty. "Calamity has not yet recovered 1 fronm the effects of her experie#,e with philanthropists. About two years .ago a womah won her heart and whatever` apology for affections she has, and induced her to go east with he- to a. better life, where there was more civilization and less cactus and barbed wire. When she got the poor old woman back there, she opened up a dim'e quseum and exhibited Calam ity for .10cents a throw. "One day the old girl tired of this form of amusement and bidding the' museum a summary farewell, arrived in Billings one day with a ~sad story and adn rnquenchable thirst." Many, of Butte's well known citi zens are signing the petition which is destined \to put "Calamity Jane high and dry beyond the pangs of penury. A SPECIAL HONOR.
