Published every day except Sunday. WEIGHT & HENDRY, : Publishers. LIVINGSTON, M. T, NOV. 8. 1884 Entered at the postoffice in Livingston, M. T. a se.;odJ-cl&ss mail matter. With the appearance «f this issue the daily edition of the Enterprise is tem porarily discontinued. This has been coi'temp'ated by the proprietors of the paper during some months past—since last winter. We here wish to express our confidence that Livingston would still con tinue to profitably support a daily paper, and that paper the Dail/ Enterprise, during the coming winter and to an indeli nite future did the proprietors of the pa per consider it advisable to continue pub lication. But the issue of a daily paper in Livingston during the coming winter upon a profitable basis would involve such a great amount of labor to the pro prietors as they do not care to undertake, and such a small amount of satisfaction as will not compensate them. The En terprise will therefore be continued through the winter as a weekly paper only, aud the daily publication will be re sume.t in the spring-. We hope to make the Weekly Enterprise equal to the best of the many superior weeklies for which Montana is renowned. We wish to thank the people of Livingston for the support they have so cordially extend ed to the Daily Enterprise. They have done as no town of equal size on the line of the Northern Pacific railroad, and we believe in the world, has done. Our course has made us political and perhaps business enemies in Livingston, but we can only think that a person or an institu tion is but a nonentity that lives and has a being untrauimelied by enmity. With out any desire to appear patronizing or os tentatiously magnanimous, we will say that the Enterprise will ever be the per sonal and business organ of its enemies exactly as of its friends. Without any boastful feeling, we believe we can hon estly say that the Enterprise have ever been the distinctive index and organ of Livingston aud its surrounding country; sucii it will ever be while the paper re mains under it» present control. In sus pending the daily edition of the paper we feel much more re gret than any other person possibly can. During the past eighteen months w e have lived for the Daily Enterprise ; we have been absorbed in its fortunes as a man might live aud work for a loved fam ily; to such au extent, indeed, has this been the case that serious physical aud meutal disability has resulted and the ne cessity of relief is a great iuoeutive reason for its discontinuance. We fully expect to resume its publication at the earliest possible opportunity and till then the Gaily Enterprise bids its reader» adieu and tiie Weekly Enterprise will tiy to fill the void.

The acting Attorney General at Wash ington has advised Governor Crosby that he has instructed the United Slates marshal not to receive any more territorial prisoners at the penetentiary until he had secured proper facilities for their care and safe keeping. It seems that there are now 111 convicts therein and that there are proper accommodations for only twenty eight. There is an additional building now under construction, but it does not provide for any cells for incarcerating prisoners. No more cell room will be provided until an additional appropriation is made for the south wing of the building in which forty-two cells are to be placed. The December number closes the six teenth volume of Erank Leslie's Sunday Magazine, and is even more than usually interesting. Now is the time to subscribe, and the new T volume promises to he of a brilliant character. In the present num ber -Raffacllo Sunzio Da Ur bin«," "The Capital City of Georgia," "Schiller, the P«>et of Freedom," etc., are prominent ar I i § j # ' tides, beautifully illustrated. Allreton Hervey continues the interesting sketches, "Sacr j d Musicians of the XlXtli Cen tury;" the editor. Dr Talmage, has a characteristic article, "The Epideuiic gf Swindle," aud a serjntm in the HDméTfco Pulpit, "The Dumb Prayer Answered.' There are also serial and short stories, sketches, essays and poems by favorite writers, and a miscellany abundaut and entertaining. The illustrations are nu merous and fine specimens of art.

Story, of Chicago, has been tile«! in probate court. It bequeaths his entire estate, including the Times uewspajjer, to his widow, Eure ka C. Story, with the privilege of selling the same; the entire estate, however, is to revert to his heir-at-law». The will pro vides for the payment «M ananuuity to the brother and sister of the testator, provided the income from the estate exceeds $10, 000 a year. Attorney for the heirs at law presented a petition for the appoint ment of Or&ou L. Story, brother of the de ceased, as administrator of the estate, thus indirect'y disputing the validity of the will. The hearing of this petition was postponed for one week.. The New hallway Heed.

Sometime, despite every attempt at discouragement, she will begin a story, of which her brother is the hero, and keep it up until patience is gray-haired with age. Ma rinda Napoleon applied to CoL Wetheral for a position of trust in his family. She began to tell him of her honesty. "That makes no difference." said the colonel. "I don't care whether you are hon est or not, and you may be reasonably negli gent in the discharge of your duties, but there is one thing that I wish to impress upon your mind." "What's dat, colonel; 'case I ken do any thing." "I do not wish you to take me into your confidence, and tell me about your family. 1 do not want to hear a word about your mother and father." "I un'erstands, sab." "I will pay you extra to keep your mouth shut. Speak when you are spokeu to, and th< n merely answer direct questions."
