From parties down from Horr we learn of the destruction of the large new coal bunker of the Park Coal and Coke company at that place by a wind storm last Friday. * The storm is reported to have been cyclonic in character and covered but a small area of ground, as parties working within twenty or thirty feet of the bunker were unware of any unusual atmospheric disturbance until the bunkers were noticed to be wrecked. There was about seventy-five tons of coal in the bunkers at the time, which will also be nearly a complete loss. The property loss to the company will be over 81,000, in addition to the loss re sulting from a temporary suspension of work at the upper mines. Day and night shifts were at once put to work and the. bunkers are being rebuilt as rapidly as possible. The interest in the entertainments given by the local lecture bureau ap pears to increase rather than diminish. That of Monday evening was probably better attended than heretofore, and a more varied and pleasing programme presented. The opening song was a quartette by Dr. and Mrs. Green, Mrs. J. M. Coyan and J. W. M. Tinling, which was exceedingly well received. Then followed a duet by Dr. and Mrs. Green, and a solo by Mrs. J. M. Coyan. The lecturer of the evening, W. H. Poorman, Esq., was introduced by Chairman Miles, and in a carefully prepared speech ably entertained the audience upon his sub ject, "Society." The evening's exercises were closed with a well rendered solo by Miss Laura Martin.

The "Chow Chow" club met Thurs day evening at the residence of Mrs. Mary E. Harmon, on the north side.

Do you know Ole Olson? The Bur lington Hawkeye says: "This new de parture in the dialect comedy line played to a packed house last night. The performance was well received and the merriment evoked by the hon est but unsophisticated Scandinavian was audible several blocks away from the Grand. "Ole" had "bane en dees kontry wan yare, feint mont and sex wake" and knew just enough about American institutions, Oklahoma eluded, to be real funny. His ideas of having "flies" on him and being in the "soup" were excessively comical. He is an excellent comedian and the individ uality with which he invests the char acter, keeps the audience in constantly laughing humor. The company is a good one, and the entertainment gave great satisfaction." Th9 Daylight, published at Britton, South Dakota, contains the following: "Monday morning Mr. and Mrs. A. Law rence arrived home on the Milwaukee train. They took up their residence for the time being at the popular Commer cial house. In the evening a formal re ception, for which printed invitations had been issued, was tendered the happy couple, by Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Hamilton and Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Aplin, at the spacious residence of Mr. Hamilton. Over sixty of Mr. Lawrence's old-time friends assembled to accord him and his bride the accustomed greeting on such occasions. This mark of distinction must be very gratifying to Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence, who are just taking up their residence among us almost in a new life." The groom was among the early busi ness men of Livingston, and during his sojourn here made many warm personal friends who will join with the Enter prise in congratulations to the joyous couple and wish them a long and pros perous matrimonial voyage. M. M. Coleman, a former section boss on the Northern Pacific at Miles City, met with a painful experience in this city Saturday night. He had started from Miles with a view to looking over the country, and upon reaching Living ston Saturday stopped off and took a room at Malloy's lodging house on Park street. Upon retiring at night he left the kerosene lamp in his room burning and went to sleep. He was shortly awakened by an explosion of the lamp, which set fire to the bed clothing, but before he could extricate himself he was severely burned about the face and hands. His outcries awakened the oc cupants of adjoining rooms, who hur ried to his assistance and quickly extin guished the flames. When discovered Mr. Coleman was in a dazed condition in one corner of the room, with his face buried in his hands. He was cared for and made as comfortable as possible un til the east bound passenger train ar rived, when he was put on board and taken to Miles City. At that place he was given proper medical attention and is reported to be recovering as rapidly as the nature of his injury will permit. The wrestling match announced between Prof. Willie and John T. Lilly's unknown, for 850 a side and door re ceipts, took place at Fowlie's hall Tues day evening, and was won by the pro fessor, who scored two falls out of three. The match was a Graeco-Roman contest. Thomas Newcombe was chosen referee. The early part of the evening was de voted to boxing by local talent, after which Jack Stone of Helena and Henry Whitten gave a very interesting three round exhibition. At the conclusion of this part of the programme Prof. Willie appeared upon the stage and was intro duced to the audience. He was quickly followed by the unknown, who proved to be Mike Flemming of Red Lodge. The first fall was won by the professor after what appeared to be a hard con test, and at its close the professor as sured his audience that Flemming was a better man than he thought him to be, and if anyone doubted his statement he was at liberty to come upon the stage and give him a trial. The second round was almost a repetition of the first, except that the professor, after giving a clever exhibition of avoiding a fall by turning completely over in the arms of his antagonist, finally lost the bout. The third round was the liveliest of the three, and during it both men f ave some fine exhibitions of wrestling. 'lemming threw the professor at the outset, but was unable to turn him on his back, and after a few minutes of hard work the professor rolled his an tagonist, who succeeded in gaining his feet, and again threw the professor on the pad. This time the professor gained a good hold around Flemmings neck and with a mighty effort threw him over and bore him squarely on the pad. This ended the contest, the professor having won two of three falls. a have occu in of and sum the of to who ma the 1st. and the re the the ar of for as In of of J. a PERSONAL P0INT8. visitor . J- B.

Yesterday morning the news was cir culated around the city that a man in the employ of the Northern Pacific rail road company had the previous night been the victim of a coat of tar and feathers, administered by unknown par ties. An investigation revealed the identity of the victim, whose name W. O. Hart, and who for the past month it is alleged, has been employed in the dual capacity of night watchman and general detective for the railroad com pany. Particulars regarding the affair are meagre, as the railroad authorities, who are interested in ferreting out and punishing the perpetrators, are exceed ingly reticent regarding the matter, Numerous rumors of the affair are in circulation, the most authentic of which is that purporting to come from Hart himself. The story is to the effect that while in the discharge of his duty in looking after company property in the vicinity of the Northern Pacific coal bunkers, he was set upon by two masked men, who were quicky reinforced by three others, also masked. He was over powered by his captors, his revolver and knife secured, when he was taken to a secluded locality east of the city and stripped of his clothing. His hands were then bound and his assailants deliber ately proceeded to horsewhip him, after which they applied to his body a coat of tar, shellac and chicken feathers, com pletely covering him from his neck to iis lower extremities. He was then marched across the railroad bridge and started east with the admonition to not again return to Livingston. As soon as released he dressed himself and returned to the city by the roundabout way of the wagon bridge, reaching Kirby's lodg ing house at an early hour in the morn ing, where he was cared for and the services of the company's physician se cured to assist in relieving him of his objectionable covering. The sheriff and county attorney were notified and with the information supplied by Hart will attempt to ferret out and punish the perpetrators of the offense. Building Improvements.
