Historical Note - week of September 25th
The Livingston Enterprise, September 25, 1886
The people of Gardiner are anticipating a rare treat on the 30th inst. A horse race is booked for that date for $200 a side between Cooke City blood and a horse owned by Mr. Wilkins of Gardiner. The distance to be run is 400 yards, and the money is already up on the race. There promises also to be free betting on the outside.
Frank Craven, the Republic Mining company’s superintendent at Cooke, went to Bozeman Thursday. Mr. Craven reports the camp as very lively, with but few idle men.
