Smith-Wablhe Marriage. The New Orleans Picayulue of Sun day says in part of the marriags of Capt. Walshe's daughter the fol lowing: A very beautiful and prominent home wedding of the Eastertide was that of Miss Elizabeth Quirk Walshe, daughter of Colonel and Mrs. Blaney T. Walshe, to Mr. Gcorge Herbert Smith, of Guatemala and New York, which was celebrated on Saturday of last week at the residence of the bride's parents in Peters Avenue, in the presencegf the family relatives and a limited numnber of intimate friends. The spacious. and lovely home was most beautifully decorated for the occasion with quaniities.of tall, grace ful palms and ferns that lined the walls and banked every nook and corner. Mr. and Mrs. Smith, who were the recipitent of a number of beautiful and costly presents, left the same evening for New York en route "to Atlantic City. N. J., where they will remain until the 24th of May, when they sail from New York on the steamship Baltic for several months' travel abroad. On their return in the late fall they wAl reside in NAw York city. The bride, who is a young woman of m:any lovely traits of mind and charactcr, is followed to her new home by the love and best wishes of a large circle of friends. Capt. Walshe, father,is well known in Welsh and we claim him as one of our people. His genial manners and gentlemanly bearing has made him a host of warm friends in this section. He owns a large rice plan tation near Welsh, which makes his interest and our interest mutual.

A".-'AO A A MUST KEEP RIVER FREE OF OIL. El Pollution of the Beautiful Stream May H Cause Criminal Prosecution. Police Juror George Hathaway and Walter Heath, proprietor of the w, Lake Arthur hotel, arrived in the VE city from Shreveport Saturday where L; they spent several days on business la of supreme importance in the eastern ek part of the parish. Mr. Heath is nt seeking a remedy for the pollution of is the Mermentan and Lake Arthur, bE which threatl us to destroy Lake fr Arthur an a resort. Mr. Hathaway ot is seeking tP protect the rice farmers from having oil pumped on their br fields, and also to procure the build- dt ing of a bridge across Bayou Nezpi- Ef que on the oil field road. U Th, pollution of the Mermentau er river and the beautiful lake at Lake or Arthur, by waste oil from the Jen- jI nings field, has long been considered J. a serious matter and this spring has wi reached an acute stage. In spite of we remonstrances, the dumping of oil Si into bayou Nezpique has continued until the Mermentau is polluted from te end to end. The oil kills the fish and w; vegetation, makes navigation dan- . gerous and renders bathins as pleasant wi as it would be in a sewer. When the p; pumping season begins, it will work I wide-spread damage to the rice crop. L; "We have received assurance from hl the United States district attorney," bE said Mr. Heath, that we have a reme- dt dy at law, and that we can carry the case to the federal grand jury which w meets at Alaxandria this month. If the oil men will eliminate the evil, which they can do with a little care, A we will not press the matter: but we are determined to put a stop to the nusiance somehow." Mr. Hathaway, on behalf of the rice growess, fully endorsed Mr. Heath's views. He also consulted District Attorney Elstner in regard to the draw for the new bayou Nezpique bridge. "The Acadia parish authori- ' ties have offered to bear half the expense," he said, "and we intend to put in a permanent structure with a steel draw span. There will be no more makeshifts with the Bayou Nezpique bridge."-L. C. American. ,0 o i - C The Union Social. Tie union social given by the Young 'eoples Societies of Welsh on F, idavy, the 28 of April, was a grand success in every way, as was expressed by all present. The program was in- J teresting and was rendered very nice y., especially the recitation by Mrs. Carroll, and the talks by the presi- v dents of the dtfferent societies, We extez l many thanks to those who labored so willingly in the decoration which tas very pretty. Especialy to Mr. George Maul do we extend thanks, who was chairman of the committee and to whom the success is due. Mr. Maul left last week for an extended trip through the north, pleasure and business I presume. IIe will be great ly missed by his many friends, especi ally the Endeavorers, of which he is a very active and helpful member. May you have a pIleasant trip George, and a speedy return is the wish of the Endeavorers. An Endeavorer. (Canned Rice. L The attention of the Rice Associa- L tion of America is respectfully in- s vited to a new scheme to introduce E rice proposed by the Lake Charles F American. Briefly explained, the scheme is to have rice put up in tin cans up north and sent down here to be sold by our grocers at two-bits for a twopound can. r Here is a scheme that meets with d our unqualified approval. Any man can see at a glance that it is practical and tfiere is every reason to believe t that it would be a howling success from the start. We buy car load of canned tgamtoes put up in Maryland, ' although this is a better tomato country than Maryland. There is no more reason why we should buy Maryland canned tomatoes than Maryland canned rice. We pay two bits a pound for sowbelly dressed in heavy overalls in Kansas City, and we've got the great West skinned to death on raising cheap hog meat. It would be wiser for us to pay al shilling a pound for rice canned in Kansas City than to pay two-bits a pound for Northern hog meat, . If we are going to keep on buying Northern sowbelly in heavy canvas covers, and tomatoes, peas beans, corn, milk, butter, etc., in cans let ) us go the limit and let them can our ) rice for us. That wodld increase the consumption and possibly some of our rice farmers and millers might learn thatit's good to eat.-Crowley SSignal.

It seems that a negro robbed another in Lake Charles Tues day evening and came to Welsh ( Tuesday night. On Wednesday morn- ( ig the robbed negro came over on the 9 o'clock train and when the train stopped at the depot the robbed negro saw his man and the thief saw the man be had robbed. This brought about a foot race through the streets of Welsh in which the thief out ran his pursuer. This occured so sud denly that the spectators did not grasp the meaning of the affair until too late to assist the injured party. The thief took to the woods that skirt the town of Welsh on the south and all trace of him lost, All the grieved party could say was: "That negro sho do run like a skert rabbit." The thief thought; He who steals and runs away, will live to steal some other day." For Rent. Two buildings on south side of Railrod Aveane for rent.

Because it requires 50t per cent less Snnburst Iice Flour than it does wheat tflour. Because the more Sunburst Iice Flour you uns. the, greater you increase the consumption of rice.

For awhile last week it was thought the Terry well had ,one out of busi- o ness. It was pumpinlg over a hundred d barrels a day when the direectors or. g dered Mr. Maul, against his judgment, w to pump faster. IHe applied more w steam and the result was a clear a stream of water instead of oil. Mr. d Maul at once ,began, work and con tinued diligently for several days, and l( on last Tuesday his labor was reward- s ed. lie discovered that the pressure r of the water near the middle of the n I well was so great that it bursted a tl section of pipe sutiiciont to let in wa- a ter that filled the well, and keeping J the flow of oil hack. Mr. Maul, after I much hard work and worry. succeed- e ed in screwing the screen down until 2 the water was entirely shut oll. The tl pump was then set to work and a pureI stream of oil was soon pouring into fi the pit. The well is just as, rood nlow as it was before the nuihap occurred. f It is gratifying to know this well is r again all right, for it means amuch to t Welsh at this time. The directors of the company left last Sunday morning in disgust for ] their homes at Jackson. Mich., he lieving that the oil had given out and a that water had taken its place. t As soon as Mr. Maul found the r cause and applied the remedy he tele- g Sgraphed the directors, and ere thi l time they are rejoicingovertheir good I s fortune. r Cautionary Notice. i All persons indebted to A.
