The precipitation during the past
month has been slightly in excess of
eleven inches. As the normal raiufall
for this section of the state for both rain

Langdon and Cavalier played on the
down town diamond in the afternoon,
following which the trap shopters o! the
county gathered at the grounds of the
Langdon Gun Club for a shoot. In the
evening the rain came down in torrents

Two interesting home talent ball games
this week have afforded lots of fun. Mon
day night the heavy bitters of the Gt.
Northern Hotel batted Cashier Thomp
son, the pitcher of the Columbia Hotel
boarders, for 20 runs. Murry Archer was
put in the box for the other side and
kept the score down to 16. Wonderful
feats in the way of fielding, base running
as well as getting hit with the ball gave
entertainment to the orowd. With the
exception of catehertthe line up of both
was striotly non-professional. They
went to bat in the following order:

Last night the enthusiasts had another
fine exhibition of amateur ball playing
by nines made up of Langdon married
and singles with Pat McHugh located
behind the pitcher to call balls and
strikes. The two teams put up a gilt
edge though not altogether errorless
game, still the score was kept down to
3 to 4, of which the benedicts captured
the big end. Jabe Souch pitched for the
victors with Joe Kelly behind the bat.
The singlemen had Hayes and Jack
Crawford as their battery. That no
scores were tallied until the second
innings shows that both sides were
attending to business all the time. It is
a long time since such an interesting
game was put up and shows that some
cf the old "has beens" have not yet
retired to the bench. Tonight the
benedicts will undertake to "shut out"
