Aladin Vincent Divested of Property. The largest judgment ever awarded in the district court of Calcasieu was that last Thursday of J. G. Gray vs. Aladin Vincent. The amount involved, including attorney's fees, court costs, etc., amounted to about $230,000. In reference to the suit the Lake Charles Press says: The Vincent suit has been before the courts for several months and it was generally thought Mr. Vincent would make arrangements satisfactory to all parties, thus avoiding seizure; the events of Thursday disprove this idea. The writ of seizure includes all the lands of the defendautstretching away from the town of Vinton to the Sabine river and containing between ten and twelve thousand acres, mostly pasture lands. In the seizure is included "Hominy Hill," the home residence of Mr. Vincent, with the fine dwelling house and numerous outbuildings, barns, stables, etc. Deputy Huskey also siezed more than one thousand head of cattle, horses, etc. Jerry Ca ruthers has been appointed keeper over the property till furthur orders of the court.

Locke Breaux, who was here last week looking after his interests in and around Welsh, gave out the following interview to the Record in Jennings: "I have been looking over the rice fields in the vicinity of Welsh and Jennings and must say that the crop is getting along as well as was ex pected, under the favorable weather that we been having for the last two or three weeks. And the buyer knows what he is going to get when he buys the rico. "The market is holding out first rate and the better grade of Honduras is selling at a good value. My im pression and idea is that a wise man should turn his goods into money as the occasion offers, without pressing to sell. "Speaking in a general manner, I should say that I am going back to New Orleans much better satisfied as to the ability of the average planter to pay his debt and swing high. "I know we are all blue about the low price of rice but frankly I must say that if we made a better grade of goods, tfere would be more money realized for the same amount of effort. Altogether its not so bad but that might be a great deal worse." Miss Katie Balshaw, a pretty young girl of Estherwood, left on Wednesday of last week ostensibly for Crowley on a shopping tour, but it proved to b, a wedding tour instead. At Crow ley she met Frank Montague, whom she loved against the wishes of her mother, and together they eloped to Orange, Texas, aiid :ere marriedq Orange was the gretna green of two Louisiana couples that day.

Bell Plumb, the mother of three children who now reside with their father, Dwight Plumb, in this city. There was no opposition, however, to the match. Below is the Tribune's account of it: R. B. Gardner, an expert rice thresher, well known to the rice farm ers of the Louisiana belt, and of late operating at and around Crowley, and a young man of good repute and industry, had for a year or more loved Katie Bell Rose, an "estimable young lady" of Welsh, in the flue old parish of Calcasieu. "Miss Rose" reciprocated the affection of her ad mirer, although for some reason her friends objected to him. In the face of this objection she promised to be his wife, and the couple delayed their marriag.e, hoping that by and by the opposition to it might cease, and the wedding bells could then ring merrily. But time brought no change in the disfavor with which "Miss Katie's" people looked upon the suit of the faithful and persistent young man ipulator of the rice separator. In fact, it became more positive and an noying to him. He fumed under it and bore with it for a year; then see ing that it was working to the visible unhappiness of his betrothed, he re solved to assert himself. He did. He telegraphed last evening from Crowley to Miss Rose at Welsh to pack her trunk and meet him at the station there on the arrival of No. 9 on the Southern Pacific.

The train brought the eager Gardner. He was quickly joined by .Miss Rose, and the two came on to Orange. This morning Judge J. J. Winham was called upon at his office in the court house by two anxious but beam ing young folks, the same being IF. B. Gardner of Crowley and Miss Katie Bell Rose of Welsh.

B. Gar dner of Crowley stood ready to bid defiance to all opposing forces. Mr. and Mrs. Gardner called at the Tribune office this forenoon to make sure that we were going to print all the news of their runaway match, and they certainly were merry over the thought of how crestfallen the afore said friends would be when they re ceived copies of the Tribune contain ing the news.

Walshe furnished Wed nesday's Times-Democrat with the fol lowing news concerning the local oil field: On the "proven field" all the com I)anies are pumping and many of the wells now giving good returns in their daily output of oil have been steady producers for twenty odd months. The most prominent of the.e companies are the Iio Bravo Oil Conmpany, the Iill Top of New Orleans, and the local company, known as the Welsh Oil and Land Development Company. Other wells owned by Beaumont, Denver and Mobile persons are also giving good returns to their owners, though this field, compared with the Jennings oil field, is quite a small producer. Both these Louisiana fields, if fully develop6d, may some day place Louisiana in the front rank as an oil-producing State. Several "wildcat" wells are in contemplation to be drilled near the proven field, and at least two will be located, one north and one due west, and both not over a mile distant from the present oil center, while a third is now drill ing southeastof the "proven field," some five miles, and is located within the corporate limits of the town of Welsh. This well is down about 400 feet, and is owned by the Louisiana Oil Company, made up largely of local capi:al, a :d ,o far Driller James Bo +.1 stat-s t la t the work is progress ing satisfactor:il v. ith some evidelnce of oui an:d quite a show of gas.

Probably the finest lot of farm teams, including both mules and horses, that come to Crowley are those owned by J. M. Jeter, who raises rice near the Ferre relift. The twenty mules and horses owned by Mr. Jeter are all sleek and well-fed, and at the same time active and powerful animals. One team of Kentucky bred horses is an especially fine pair, and it is always remarkable for its fine con dition. Mr. Jeter was recently asked to explain the method of feeding that kept his stock in such good condition. "Ground rough rice," was the sen tentious reply. "I have been feeding this team more or less on ground rice for six years, and during the past year rice has formed their exclusive diet. I work on my farm twenty head of horses and mules, and are all fed on ground rough rice. I clubbed in with a neighbor last year and bought a small feed mill capable of grinding twenty sacks a day and operated by horse powor. About 500 sacks of rice were ground last year in this mill by myself and my neighbors. This year I am saving 400 sacks of rice for feed, and in my immediate neighborhood I am told a large quanitity will be held out for this purpose. "The feeding of ground rough rice to stock of all kinds has Ii: ",,irt" v successful with us, and we tind, it ni'th cheaper than hI:yi,- ort ,h,,r :ats. Bushel for bushel I rt,"e.ar iiice as a better feed than either crn or oats. I know nothing about the scientific test, but I know what the practical results are. "As to the cost of feed compared with corn and oats here is the way I figure it. A sack of rice has a feeding value equal to five bushels of oats. Five bushels of oats cost now $2 50. To this must he added fifteen cents a sack for hauling the rice to market and hauling the oats home. I there fore estimate that when a rice farmer exchanges red rioe for oats or sells his red rice and buys outs with the money, he must get $2.6i5 a sack for his rice in order to break even on the transaction. Even in the best years there is some rice on every farm that will not bring that much. "I feed rough rice to my hogs, but do not grind it. The rice is scattered on the ground, instead of being fed in troughs. This compels the anima!s to (at slowiy alndth ar t'v i thu able to grind it usnidiit'r,!l .
