A large number from the Hazelton country and front the eastern part of tlie county went to the celebra tion at Napoleon, many of them at traded by the game of base ball be tween Hazelton and Napoleon. Al though the day was about as uncom fortable as could be imagined heat, a high wind and a dust storm all combining to make things disagree able there was the biggest crowd assembled that the Logan countv capital has ever had within its borders. There were games of all sorts, an address by the editor of the Record, and two base-ball con tests. The first was Hazelton-Napo leon, resulting IT to 1 in favor ol the former, and a game between Kintyreand Burnsted, which tin Emmons county team won out. A foot race between I'aul Kurt/ Hazelton and a Logan county man was won by Kurtz. The people of Napoleon did everything possible to make the day an enjoyable one for the visitors.
