Development in the Jennings oil field is proceeding with such astonish ing rapidity that one familiar with the field as it was three months ago would scarcely know the place today. Three million barrels of oil are now in storage, representing about three quarters of a million dollars. Oil is being distributed from Egan, Mermen tau and Jennings, the three points to which it is piped for shipment, at the rate of about 15,000 barrels a day, while the production is more than four times that figure. Four new gushers have increased the production enormously. The pro duction of any one of them equals the total production of the field a year ago. The average, per day, from gushers, and excluding the pumping wells, which produce perhaps 3000 barrels, is about 70,000 barrels. One of the greatest problem that confront the operators in the field is that of storage. The Crowley Oil and Mineral Company and the Texas Com pany are both constructing additional storage tanks of very large capacity. Over four months ago the Produ cers-Lhatreille came in a gusher and it is still gushing, although not as strongly as at first. This well stop ped for a short time when the great Wilkins well came in, but resumed gushing in a few days. .... .. -- im. • o ... DOLLS, DOLLS, DOLLS.

Cont inuing fur tlhr he said: "Why here at Welsh you had the same gas masnifetations as they are now having at Humble, and, besides, you have had oil wells pumping right along for the past two years, and yet Welsh has had pracri cally no development. I believe this lack of interest in the Welsh field is because it has not been advertised sulticiently. The merits of the field are confined too closely to home. Welsh will be a great oil field even tually, and even at present gives more evidence of oil than many other fields now commanding widespread atten tion." Another gentleman, also an author ity on oil matters, whose name he re quested us not to divulge, said:. "In the many conversation, I have had concerning the oil conditions of the oil fields in the south, I have never heard a doubt expressed as to the final outcome of the Welsh field." This seems to be the concensus of opinion among all who are familiar with the conditions here, and it is only a matter of a short time until proper development will assert itself.

O R Loans Money on Real Estate At Reasonable Rates and on Easy Terms. T 8 Welsh Continues Developing. While the Rio Bravo Oil Co.( the Southern Pacific) has shut down its pumps, ceased operations and placed a keeper in charge of its tanks and machinery, others in the Welsh field continue to sink wells and operate those they have. The producing stratum in the Welsh field is reached almost uniformly at 1010 feet, making wells cheaper than in any other producing field, which fact, with the greater market value of the oil, would under normal con ditions mark this notably a profitable place for investment. The Southern Pacific is on the field, and as a site for manufacturing the little city has the strong attraction of cheap fuel and healthiness. Judged by the result in this field, it is little wonder that the wildcatters are inactive in the several prospective fields of this parish. There is plenty of oil in Calcasieu; but nobody with limited means can develop, and when developed the price of the product is ridiculosly inadequate when compared ,with the price of oil or of fuel else where. Those who own oil lands seem yet doomed to vex their souls in patience. -Lake Charles News. Taken Up. Tuesday, December 6, a red milk cow about seven years old, was taken up at my farm, near the Gulf rice mill. The animal is solid red without marks or brands.

The chief advant aZie, ur rtd for the new foo'(d are that it is better and cists less than others. I tadford ('o. is the motive po.,wer behind this new departure. The ware l[house oif the concern is linated in tle Fifth ward, corner of Montgomrry avenue and ()rleans ,street. l1;xperi'(.ce has taught those who have handled rice that it is one of the most nutritious of food stulfs. It has great power of sustenance. both for man and beast. The idea, therefore, occur'ued to Messrs. la(ldford and (;olding, members of the firm of Iad ford & '(o., that it would not le a had idea to utilize the "red" or low grade rice, which on account of its grade will not bring a fancy price in the( nm rket as a food for man. Bly doing this they can pay the farmer it better price for this rice than he can other wise receive and at the same time give the public a good feed stuff for live stock for less than it must pay for oats or corn. A number of people in Houston and vicinity are using the feed, and it is claimed that it is every bit as good as oats. It is claimed by some who used it while harvesting a crop of rice that the teams actually get fat (luring that very trying time. Radford & Co., says that while the feed is as good as oats, it is fully 33 per cent. cheaper, and this it is thought should be sufficient induce ment to get a man to use it after he is convinced that it will fatten his stock. The new feed is really a compound with red rice for a base. All the in gredients are highly nourishing and it is believed that when the preparation shall have been given a trial that the demand will be fully equivalent to the capacity of the concern. - -- ,,,I , e ,n- .. .

Jennings Record: It is natural for people to speak pro and con on the good and bad merits of a country-its people, climate, resources in various ways, but when a man expresses his opinion from an unbiased standpoint and especially one who is thoroughly familiar with the subject in contro versy such an opinion has more weight and can be relied on. The farmers of this section are to a certain extent turning their attention to cot ton and in many cases its cultivation is new to them. In conversation with a Times Record representative last evening a gentleman who knows what he is talking about in the cotton line -namely Mr. J. E. Adger, who is a cotton expert and is at present ac sociated with Prof. S. A. Knapp in making report on the cotton conditions for the United States government, stated that this section of Louisiana was an ideal cotton country. He owns and superintends a cotton plan trtion of 10,000 acres and is fully versed in the matter. He sees no reason why cotton can note produced on this soil and in his opinion we have a good soil that is adapted to cotton. He is of the opinion that the farm ers of this section will gradually be come cotton planters but he is a firm believer in the opinion that farmer should raise his own necessities of life.

Five children were born of this union, two daughters, the eldest 16," and three sons, the youngrest nearly seven. Lit tle Eugene, the baby of fifteen months, and the light and joy of the home hav ing been laid to rest in July, since which time the mother gradually fail ed until Nov. 30, when she peacefully passed away. Her life has been an exemplary one and she died as she had lived, per fectly submissive to God's will. She died at Hutchinson, Kansas, whither her husband had taken her in fond hopes of seeing her restored to health. Many friends met the bereaved hus band at the train.

You can't afford to send your rice away where you can tP not look after it, and where from past experience you can Vp figure from 6 months to one year in getting returns. You C can't sell it for the prevailing prices in the rough, as it is o too cheap. Now if you will take our advice; this is what you will do: Haul your rice to the mill of the GULF RICE` MILLING ) COMPANY, LTD., AT WELSH, LA. Theirs is a home enterprise t0 by home people-worthy of your patronage and support. C 0' The following is their proposition: Advance you three i. fourths of the actual value of your rice and mill it for ) you. You will then be advised what your rice is worth, or in other words what they can sell it for, and MAKE YOU V RETUINS IN TWENTY DAYS from the time you decide to sell, , C or if you want it held, they will hold it for you; and any time you call at the mill they will tell you just what it is worth on that day. However, after hauling if you do not Q wish to take the chanoes of the market fluctuation of the 10 days it would take to mill your rice and put it on the markets of the United States, we will pay you the top of "0 the market or MORE THAN THE PREVAILING PRICKS in the 0 rough. Better consider this before selling or shipping. t Bring in your samples and talk it over with Manager . Miller. NO TROUBLE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS AT THE o GULF RICE MILLING CO. o Trouble to Answer Questions at the Gulf Rice Mill ýhipping Tiee to Europe. Local richt men are encouraged over the prospect of oplening the European market to American rice says, the Crowley Signal. It is believed that the war in the for East. ;'hich has made Japan a large buyer of low grade rice and a smaller seller of the higber grades, is largely responsible for the fact that we are able to sell rice in Europe. Low grade rice is being fed to stock in great quantities, and the amount that will be taken out of general con sumption is estimated at from 200,000 to 4600,000 bags. Throughout the rice belt the mills are grinding rice for feed, and it is being fed as it comes from the mill and also mixed with oats and corn. All these increased avenues for working off the crop taken together have resulted in the greatly increased movement spoken of above, and while local rice men are not looking for a. marked rise in the price of low grade rice before next season, there is a growing feeling that the 19t)4 crop will be cleaned up in time to make room for the crop of 19!05. Department Treats Us Liberally. A Washington special says: Rep resentative A. P. Pujo, who reached here today, called at the war depart ment to enquire, what provisiohs had been made for the improvements of the Calcasieu mouth and passes. He was told that the war department had asked for $242,000 for the completion of the project, $125.000) of which was to be made available for the fiscal year. Mr. Pujo is satisfied with the es timates, and only hopes that the rivers and harbors committee of the house, now in session, will approve the de partment's recommendations. - e-- -c-------- Taken Up.
