LIVINGSTON, M.T., AUGUST 81,1883.
Yesterday's issue o f the Bozeman Cour
ier contains a lengthy editorial advocating
a concert of action between Livingston
and Bozeman in all important enterprises
and taking as its text "in unity there is
strength''. Our readers will be greatly
interested in its perusal and for their ben
efit we shall reproduce it in to-morrow's
issue of the Enterprise. We trust that
its suggestions will receive the attention
they deserve.
Is anything special to be done by Liv
ingston on the afternoon of Sptcmber 6th,
when the four trains bearing the selection
from the nobility of America, England
and Germany halt at our depot? It is
special opportunity and should not pass
unimproved. Livingston is a child of the
Northern Pacific, and though now, per
haps. out of leading strings, should not
forget its parent. Henry Villard has by
his orders to those in charge of his great
property evinced a desire to see every
thing along the line put on its most
pleasing appearance for the eyes of his
mstinguished guests. This feeling on his
part is right and proper, not only in jus
tice to himself, but for the credit of the
new northwest. We believe that so far
as they can conveniently do so the people
aUug the route should second his efforts,
if from no other consideration than that
of self-interest. There is no need of any
extra expenditure for the purpose. Let
the residents generally be careful that on
that day the town wears its accustomed
aspect of thrift and activity. A goodly
representation of the inhabitants would
do well to place themselves in view at
the depot. Carriages and working teams
should find business at that time on the
streets in plain view of the trains. Prop
erty owners should put their buildings
and places of business in as neat condition
as possible. If there are flags in town
they should be floated to the breeze, and
a judicious ornamentation with evergreens
will have a pleasing effect. All these
things will produce the natural, proper and
most desirable impression that we have
here in Livingston a busy, active town,
with every sign of neatness, order, and
wealth, and plenty of people enjoying
life within its boundaries. We believe
that Such a display of our every-day life
would create a better impression than any
formal reception.

The treasury department is receiv
ing daily credit bonds bearing assign
ments witnessed by cashiers or presi
dents of national banks, but not veri
fied by the bank seal. Heretofore the
signatures of tiie bank officers have
been certified by treasury officials after
comparison with the signatures on file
in the office of the comptroller of the
currency and known to be genuine. It
lias been decided, however, that this
practice involves too much risk, and
hereafter when the seal of the bank is
missing the bonds will be returned to
the sender.
We pullish the following for the
benefit of the Billings Herald. It
was clipped from the Terre Haute
(Ind.) Gazette, and was written by the
editor, W. It. Bali, who was of the
Associated Press excursion to the
Park: Of Billings a story is told
whicn runs as follows: One of G. P.
R. James' "solitary horsemen travel
ing alone by himself " was on his way
to the town several years ago, proba
bly to see bis newly bought home.
Stopping the only man he met, he
asked where Billings was. "Billings!
Why, you are in it now," "And
where is Starr & Bullock's store?"
"Just you keep eighteen miies down
the left hand side of this avenue; its
oil the first corner." Somewhat later
a sheep herder located a homestead
ang a stream back among the foot
hills where no human habitation was
visible for miles around, but just as
he had completed bis log claim shack
he was driven off by a real estate
agent who came out to locate an east
ern man on his residence lot in an
addition to Billings which comprised
the sheep herder's homestead.

North of Machine Shops. Very desirable property for investment.
All wishing residence lots, come and investigate for yourselves
before purchasing elsewhere, and buy only first-class property. Be
sure and do not buy property which will separate you from the best
part of the town, and those who have examined the Park and Paiace
Additions acknowledge them to be far superior to all for residences.
We have already sold lots to person?? who will build immediately, and
in some instances bring their families. We aim to constantly keep
houses for sale and rent, thus to accommodate those who wish to go
to housekeeping in great hast e and not Laving time to build. We are
selling houses very cheap, and wish those who anticipate buying
would carefully examine ours, and see for themselves we do not pre
varicate.
