of materials will necessitate advances

After sDendinc a day and a half in j
hearing the nasty details of the mar- j
ital troubles between Lewis A. Iripp 4
and Elsie Tripp, Judge Belt refused
to give either party a decree of se-
peration unless a settlement of pro-
peity rights was made. Tripp who
is a prune grower of the northern ena 1
of the county, then agreed to give ms
1 ,ifo S3 KflO. and the ease was ens-
missed,; The court has not yet de-
cided as to which party he will a-
nrarrl t.Vi decree of divorce. Ii
In the Circuit CourfTin Dallas Tues
day evening, Homer Dale was tried
and found guilty of the charge of
contributing to the delinquency of
a minor child. Thursday he was sen
fenced by Judge Belt to the full pen
alty of the law-4one year m the
county jail and a fine of $1,000.
In the ease of the State against
William -Tatom. charged with the
same offense as Dale, with the same
girl, the jury returned a verdict of
not guilty.
