The Rice Association is continuing to do good work for the rice planters, having advanced the price of rice from $2."5 to $2.;5 for No. I., during the past few weeks. A still further advance would be possible if the lanters would all join in the move iment and lend their assistance to mak inj their product worth inmore on the market. by signing up with the asso ciation, thus making it impossible for the mills to continue buying at a fig ure less than the cost of actual pro dluction, as they have been doing in the past. There are, however, we are sorry to say, a few farmers in this locality that are like barnacles on a ship, doing nothintlg to push the mark et along, yet hoping to profit by any increase that may accrue from the efforts of others. This class of farm ers, of which there are not many, rather than pay the small tee of ten cents a sack necessary to provide running expenses for the association, will follow in the association's wake and otier to take a few cents less for their rice than the association prices, and so are, to a certain extent' keep ing the market more or less unstable. If these same planters, as well as all others, would sign up with the asso ciation it would be but a short time before they would be enabled to ad vance the price of rice even further than they have already done.

Have some EXTRA SHORT STRAW SEED, also Very truly, R. E. Powell, Unlimited. Anar Cbaisson and Louis Meyers Ar rested ou Cbarge of Stealing Cattle Quite a sensation was caused here Wednesday afternoon, by the arrest of Amar Chaisson of Welsh, by Deputy Sheriff r. E. Powell, of Elton, and Louis Meyers, of the Grand Mirias, by Deputy Isaac Fontenot on the charge of cattle stealing. The men were taken to Jennings, where the warrants had been made out and com. mitted to Lake Charles, where it is expected their ease will come up be fore the Grand Jury, which is now in session. It seems that a number of fat cattle have been stolen recently in the Elton neighborhood, . and finally a watch was appointed to catch the thieves if possible. The second night of the watch a disturbance was heard among the cattle, and the watchers made a dash for the thieves, who by running through wire.ferces eluded their cap tors. Returning they found a freohly killed beef bearing Mr. Coriel's brand. They also found a team and wagon which Mr. Chaisson admits Is' his, A coat containing a letter addressed to Mr. Chaisson as well as his belt was also found in the wagon. Mr. Chaisson explains the matter as follows: that he had just opened up a butcher shop in Roanoke, and had eone out to kill a cow, which he had bought from Louis Meyers, and that when he got there. he found the cow ito poor to kill, and that two unknown mulattoes came along and told him they had a beef 4o sell, and if he would let them take his wagon they would kill it and bring it bac-thbat they took the team but did not return <with it, Ell and Jane Produced the Ladgh Alright. Eli and Jane at the Auditormui Sat. urday night was the greatest laugh producer of the season.

One of the pleasant social events of the season was the reception tend ered Mr. Chas. V. Moor and his bride, Monday evening at the Moor home stead just north of town. Between seventy-five and a hundred guests assembled to welcome the young couple back to Welsh. The evening was spent in guessing charades, social chat, the discussion of politics and the enjoyment of the abundent refreshments that were served. The evening was a most hSp. py one in every particular and is, we trust, but a harbinger of the happiness that awaits the bride and groom in the new home they are founding, The newly married couple received many beautiful and valuable presents in cut glass, china and silverwear.
