THE DAILY ENTERPRISE.
Published everyday except Sunday. WRIGHT & HENDRY, : Publishers. LIVINGSTON, MONT., JUNE 28.1883. A letter from an eis ern correspondent to one of our business men contains the following sentence: "If what the Daily Enterprise says is true Livingston must be very lively." We know not what par ticular issue of the paper came under this writer's notice, or what statement was questioned as being an index of the town's prosperity, but the expression is sugges tive. • Since beginning the publiction of this paper we have seduously endeavored to give in its columns a fair idea of what is daily transpiring in and around tile town. The Enterprise does not claim to be a boom sheet other than by faithfully recording loeal happenings, and thus giving to readers who are not residents an idea of the active life of this town. But it is a fact that such readers often form their opinions of a town from a perusal of the "local" columns of its papers. A newspaper article written with the inten rion of booming a particular locality gen erally bears about it the impress of its character to a sufficient degree to be re garded with disfavor and skepticism by the general foreign reader. We, therefore, consider it at all times best when referring to tha town's status to remain within the strict bounds of plain truthful state ment of facts. Noa-reäidsnt readers will, we trust, never have occasion to accuse the Enterprise of having misled them into an exaggerated opinion of Livingston. The whole truth if told of this town is sufficiently prepossessing without resorting to any draft upon the imagination. To point a moral, before concluding, we would say send your friends copies of your local papers. It.is impossible to'es timate the public good accomplished by this simple practice. Printers' ink gives opinions to all the world, and the truism loses none of its force when your Living ston papers are the subject under consid eration. A Printer's Dream. A printer sat in his office chair, his boots were patched and his coat thread bare, a-id his face looked weary and worn with care. While sadly thinking of busi ness debt, old Morpheus slowy around him crept, and before he knew it he soundly slept; and sleeping he dreame thot he was dead, from trouble and toil liis spirit had tied, and that now even a cow-bell tolled for'the peacetul rest of Ilia cow-hide soul. As he wandered among the shades v that smoke scorch in lower hadcp, he éhoytly noticed an iron door that créaMhgly'ttwiiEg on hinges ajar, but tiie enhance was closec with a red-hot bar, and Satan himself stood peeping ont and watching for travelers thereabout, and thus to the passing printer spoke: "Come iu, my dear, it shall not cost you any thing; never fear, this is the place I cook the ones who never pay their subscription sums; for though in life they may escape, they will find that when they are dead it is too late ; I will show you the place where I melt them thin with red-hot chains and scraps of tin, and also where I comb their heads with broken glass and molten lead, and if of refreshment they only think, there's boiling water for them to drink; there's the red-hot grindstone to grind down his nose, and red-hot rings to wear in his toes; and if they mention they don't like fire, I'll sew up their mouths with a red-hot wire; and then, dear sir, you should see them squirm, while I roll them over and cook to a turn." With these last words the printer awoke, and thought it all a practical joke, but still at times so real did it seem that he can't be lieve it was all a dream; and often he thinks with a chuckle and grin, of the fate of those who save their tin, and never pay the printer. * * The Circus. The circus has come and gone. It seemed to give general satisfaction, and was in fact a good show. The acrobatic performances, particularly that on the trapeze, were exceptionally good and well worth the price erf admission. If Cos tello will permit us to make a suggestion of improvement, it would be that cushion ed scats tie provided in the reserved sec tion, if not throughout. We judge such arrangement would greatly add to the average person's enjoyment of the show. The afternoon performance was well at tended, and in the evening the pavillion was literally packed with . spectators. Fully 1,800 people must have occupied ac&te at last evening's performance. Cas tcJlo told & reporter of the Enterprise that Livingston had given him a much larger attendance than any town in which bo had displayed wnce leaving Bi-marck. This is most practise and indisputable evidence ef the fact that to-day Living Aton is the liest town between the Missouri end. Uelfitu. Be the to A WHOLESALER OF Milwaukee Beer!
