Captured Afterjs} Exciting Chase Sheriii Broussard last Thursday morning captured a negro fugitve from justice after a most exciting chase. The negro who gave his name as Geo. D. Morton, had visited Biossat's jewelry store to have a watch re paired and while there acted in a very sus picious manner and gave evidence of an un easy frame of mind. Sheriff Broussard on be.pg informed of the matter began asear=h for the man, who had in the meantime re tired to Jake Brown's cabin in Mouton's Addition. The officer proceeded thither and on approaching noticed a negro boy stadisg sent~ee, disappeared in great haste toward the rear of the house. By the time the sheriff arrived the negro fugitive had fled through a back way and was quite a d(stsrce awyay. The pursuit now began in earnest, the sheriff discharging several pis tol shots to cause his man to heave to, but all in vain, The negro finally took refuge an Mr. Jean Vigneauc's field and continued for some time to evade the sheriff by dogd ing about in the high weeds. Our plucky Sheriff a last worked his "rabbit foot" suc. cessfully put his man under arrest, although the latter lad two "rabbit foots" in his pocket. The sheriff found a Colt's pistol, 38 calibre and alirge valise filled with clothes, a watch and several smaller articles of jew elry in possession of Ihis prisoner, whom he believes to be Jeff Gibbs of Copiah county, Miss., and wanted for the murder of J. C. Davis in October, 1892. The negro claimed snt he was from - East Tetas, a brakeman by avocation and a mnember of the Brother hood'of Railway Trainmen whose badge he wore. The representations however are deemed false and the sheriff will hold Morton, until he ascertains positive informs. tions as to his Jrimes or misdeeds. Carencro News. From Our Resu Coonespondeta. The article of the Lafayette Ad veatiser replying to our little "pleas tnry" .orpcerning their "*parish map," has dadlgen~4~ our powder and spiked our guns5 asd we .acicept the very satisf~.cry :explsation in the spirit in which. it is offered. -It eas a merr'y party that asailed themselves of the pl.asent weather to visit the [Un'Ron pjanta tion a few days. It consited of Mr. and Mrs. O. P. Guilbeau, Mr. and Mrs. Odon Guldry, Mesdgmes G. H. Guilbeaa, Ludovic Guilbeau, and Maurice Francez. On arrival ;t the plantation, these ladies and gen tlemen were very cordially received by Mr. Bradford Knapp, super intendent, whoseemed to take much pleasure in escorting them around the place, showing and describing to them the workings of the compa- I ny's great refinery. They returned where they: visited friends. They d passed a most enjoyable day. -The following from the pen " of the Rayne, correspondent in the e last issue of The Ranger, affords food for meditation: "Last week I - noticed ' cotip was hauled to 4 s gin almost in ~ie corporation limits, there ginned, and the cotton seed r hauled to CarQncro, twenty miles or more away, to find a purchaser, and while our merchants were of fering only 63 cents, cotton sold for 7 tj cents t the place just men tioned, a difference of only one t cent." Why certainly, brother, and when a difference of one cent means a clear gain of $5 per bale, you should not be surprised that Carencro looms up as the best cot ton market in the parish. Our far mers can rest assured that they will always get the "*top market" prices for both cotton and cotton' seed, as well as for all their other pro duce. We give you our sympathy, if you will only:.glve us your cotton, and you will profit thereby. -Miss Aranide Guilbeau, of Breaux Bridge, was in town this week visiting relatives. -Tlhe good people of Breaux Bridge, are now in communication with the Carenero and Teche Rail road through its president, Prof. S. A. Knapp, looklo;g to the entension of its road to their town. Your cor respondent has it from reliable au thority that if the Breaux Bridge people do their part, which is not ,so very much, they will sure ac complish their object. Should this be done, there is' no doubt that a refinery will by established there. The Breaux Bridge committee is composed of the following influen tial and energetic citizens: Chas. Delhommer, mayor; J. Jeanmard, Cyp. Melancon, A. Billeaud, Dr. H. P. Guilbeau, Arthur Patin, Judge J. O. Bourdier, P. L. Guil beau, Dr. Arthur Guilbeau, and Judge Alphonse fJuilbeau. -Mr. Dominique Cayret, of the firm of Cayret & Blernard, of Mou ton's Switch, was in in town last SuDly. --The Sunset and Carencro base balil clubs played a very interesting gime- at the church grounds last Sunday. Owing to a disagreement between the "'scorers" of the re spective teams, the game was de cided a draw and the purse di vided. As in alisuch cases neither side was erjtented; and your correspondent Pea. been requested to insert the following "defi" in the Carencro column: CARENCRO, LA., Sept. IS, xS93. The Carencro Base Halt Club avails itself of this method of challenging the Sunset club to play a, game of ball within a rca sonable time for a hiarse of S25 aside. ANTHEoI.' ~s4IIAN, Captain B. C.

To the Editor of The Gazette: I will again 'try to interest the readers of The Gazette, which is the most popular paper in South West Louisiana. The weather has been good and favorable to our small crop of rice. Corn and cotton are very good, but more or less damaged by the recent storm. The writer had the pleasure to attend the grandest and most pleas urable picnic of the season, It was given by our Temperance Union at Indian Bayou last Saturday. Four of the unions were there, each one marching under its banner and sing ing beautiful temperance songs, presenting a truly grand scene. All the unions married to the church, where appropriate remarks were made by Messrs. Howard Huffpauir, Tom Spell, Odes Huffpauir, Brother Toler, and the Rev. Mr. Drake of Crowley, and S. W. Nickle, president of Union No. 34 of Duson, Brother Toler gave a splendid il lustration of the amount that is annu ally expended for alcoholic drinks, which is something like $9,ooo,ooo. This is almost double the amount expended for any one article of food, After a short addressed on the subject of temperance by the Rev. Mr. Drake the people departed for their respective homes all seeming well pleased and satisfied with a day well spent, Let us hope that th,:se unions will succeed in making many converts to the cause of terupet-n.c and bid them go4Gspeg4 in th.r noble efforts in fighting the whisJy .evil BELMONT, \Subcribe for The ..rette, Si per e. ca..
