June 15 – On this day in Montana history in 1916 the Wibaux Pioneer carried a front page story on “Happenings on Circus Day.” A person hired to help set up the tents was run over by a six ton wagon, but lived to tell about it. “The circus gladly paid his bill.” Another local was struck by a crutch by one of the injured female performers after he “was getting gay with her.” But all in all the paper reported that “it was a clean show that pleased everyone.”
