The Town Election.
An election was held last Monday
to elect a mayor, marshal and five
aldermen for the town of Hlomer to
serve for the next twelve months.
Very little interest and no excite
ment was manifested, owing to the
fact that but one ticket was placed
inthe field. Walter Ward was re
elected mayor and Thomas Harris
marshal. The aldermen are A. E.
Wilder, C. O. Ferguson, J. T.
Otts, J. E. Hulse and R. WI. Col
lier, all menmbers of the old board
except R. W. Collier, who was run
instead of E. R. White, the lattcr
Ideclining to serve another term.
These are all competent and exper
ienced men, and Homer will con

That Cow Case.
The celebrated cow case entitled,
Ned Johnson vs. Elizabeth Reyn
olds, appealed from the justice
court of ward 6, has at last dragged
its weary length to an end in the
District Court. The heroine of the
litigation was not produced in court,
for the reason that the search war
rant issued had not found her
whereabouts. The array of law
yers in this case was composed not
only of the best barristers at the
Homer br, but of the adjoining
parishes. Sam Barkedale, Gener
al Young, J. E. Moore and L. F.
It. Reynolds, Esqre. representing
the defense, while J. A. Dormon,
W3 W. Patterson, J. W. Holbert
and J. A. Richardson,. Esqrs., sp
peared for the plaintiff. Supposing
these eight lawyers each received a
fee of ~0,00, as they no doubt did,
the lItigants spent 6400.00 to get
the case presented in the District
Court, Add to this 6100.00 for
costs in both cotrts and we have
$600,00, besides the loss of time,
and vexztion of spirit1 We are not
able to arrive at the exact value of
the burden of this litigatih, for
the reason the witnesses differ as to
her intrinsic worth. The plaintit,
er Johnson, swore she was worth
AB(sg dollars, but another wit'
nes sof high repute teastled she
was not worth over two-bits, for
the reason that no one save Ned

of the kind than the one which

Keener's Creek, six miles this side
of Gibbs. A one hour's ride car
ried us to our destination; sad
and desolate we felt when the
train left us In the woods. Two
hours and a half rewarded us,
however. At 9:30 we heard the
whistle; the old horse came up
puffing and blowing with a car

from Gibbs, and baskets innumer

and a croquent sett. About 10
o'clock a harp was found, and the
IIomierites tripped the light fan

heavy and luxuriant foliage of the

to partake of the many good things
from the cuisine departmnc-t. Af
ter dinner our company, hearing
the entrancing strains of a violin,
and guitar, repaired again to the
dancing ground. The manipula

seated on a convenient stand a:d

Criminal Cases Heard From.
The criminal cases appealed
from this parish, have at last been
decided by the Supreme C.mrt
sitting in New Orleans. The
verdict of the jury and judgment
of the lower court in all the cases,
were aflirmed. Unless the sentence
is commuted, Rob. Wright will
be hung, at such a time in the
near future, as the governor may
designate. For the information
of the public we will state, that a
recent law of this state, requires
that all executions of the death
penalty be done in the presence
of not less than five nor more than
twenty persns.
Of the other prisoners whose
cases were appealed, 'I'on Bugg
will be imprisoned at hard labor
in the penetentiary for life, Bill
Ware for twelve years. Julius
Canty flve years and Tom Beck four
years. As soon as the mr ndate of
the Supreme Court is received the
sheriff will convey the last named
lprisoners to Baton Rouge.
The writer made quite a pleas
ant visit to Tulip last Saturday
attending the memorial services.
'There was a large crowd of people
i out to show their respect for the
I hallowed dead. They had met
the evening before and cleared off
r the glare yard, and on Saturday
r the decorating of graves and other
s memorial services were held. We
are glad to see that these beauti
ful and impressive ceremonies are
more commonly held in our parish
than they formerly were. While
t the exercises cannot benefit the
, silent sleepers, friends and kindred
of former days, yet they are calou
lated, to benefit the living, for the

a loved and lost, has a subduing
and hallowing influence over us
all. The people of the Tulip com

better in the parish, annually set
y apart one day for the purpose of

honored dead.
