To Advertisers! lyTiiE Sea Coast Echo bus & larger circulation in Bay St. Louis than any pa per published, EDITORIAL. Mr, Wanamakcr ought to be con vinced by this time that the people dovnot wish “bargains’* when they postage stamps. The veterans are growing fewer, btit the pension roll continues to grow larger all the time. Paradoxi cal, but true. The Louisiana country papets are urging immigration to their State. Thrifty and intelligent immigrants are desirable everywhere. Since the late general strike in New Orleans, commercial affairs in that city have been somewhat impair ed, however, patters will no doubt gradually improve. Northern manufacturers are rapid ly moving South. Mississippi is re ceiving a good share of this class of immigration by seeking. Why don’t south Mississippi sepk? The Echo hears from prominent sources that Hon. August Keller has the best chance for the office of Col lector of Custom over his competitors. Why should he not? No man could be better qualified for the position, and a truer typo of Democracy could not be found. All the Masonic Grand bodies will meet in Natchez during the week commencing Monday, February 6th. The Grand Commandery will meet on the 6th, the Grend Chapter and i Grand Council on the 7th, and Grand Lodge on ihe Bth. It will be the 75th anniversary of the Grand Lodge. Here is the biggest chunk of truth vre have yet found and it must be wall read and studied, it is clipped from the Biloxi Bercdd : “It is use less for newspapers to write columns after columns setting forth the ad vantages of the sea coast, unless its citizens will unite and give substan tial aid.” Mr. Blaine was no doubt one of the foremost Republican leaders, aside from his political beliefs he enjoyed a big share of friendship and popu lar esteem. He aspired for the Pres idential chair, but his party never yielded to this. In. defeating the in famous force bill, Mr. Blaine was an important factor. We read that the Chinese never dun a delinquent debtor, but if a bill is not paid when,due, off comes one of the debtors ears. If such was the case in this country, we wonder how many earless “dead beats” would there be going around. The coun try printer would have the largest and most varied collection of ears. —————— Subscribers should take advantage Of our clubbing offer entitled, “For Subscribers,” in another column. For $1.60 you gel every week your home paper and the best and largest illustrated agricultural weekly pub lished in America. The price may soon be raised again as it is in to day’s issue and the offer may soon be void. It is reported that the planters in Alabama aie preparing for an im mense cotton crap, and the same is threatened in Mississippi. This is where and how all the trouble origi nates. Too much raising of one pro duct and a lack of other products. The remedy of low cotton and high meat i to plant less of the former and raise the latter. The recent freeze along this Mis sissippi coast was no greater in de gree than in our sister State, Louis iana, and strange to say, while the orange trees of this section are most ly damaged, the Louisiana trees do not evidence the least sign of injury from the freeze. An ivestigation by horticulturists shows the main Wd simple reason. In Missis sippi the soil is sandy and unlike the close-connected Louisiana soil, does not allow the cold to penetrate. After all the pecan and fig proves to be the best for raising and profit •long the Mississippi coast. -SA-w> L UMBg/i BUSINESS ACTIVE. Hancock county saw mills are all reported flourishing during the brief period that has elapsed of the new year. Lumber is not by no means short, and notwithstanding the slight advance in prices, the market is good. The recent heavy rams proved a boom to the trade, that is to the log men and the mills. The mills at Pearlington of the Poitovent and Favre Lumber Com pany, the largest in the South, are very busy just now, and from a news paper report, it is learned that the lumber business is assuming a bright er aspect than last year. This com pany carries and immense business in New Orleans and in addition they carry a big foreign trade. At the present they are loading six vessels at Ship Island, opposite Biloxi, for foreign ports, whose total aggregate will reach 4,000,000. When these are loaded other ships will receive equally if not a larger cargo of lum ber. The Echo is gratified at such fav orable circumstances the lumber men arc working under. IN EXTREME. The Northwest is depleted of hogs and cattle. A report from lowa says a stock famine is now threatened, hogs have been scarce for some time past and are becoming more so every day. The price of pork in its various forms has risen to a parity with beef and a large number of farmers are shipping shoats from Missouri to the West to restpek their farms. Even this, however, cannot prevent the steady rise in prices. Beef will soon rise also since there are now very few cattle that are marketable in the country and buyers are each day buying all the cattle they can get. Misfortunes seem never to come singly. As the country judge once said about his boarding house lleas, “they all seem to be married and to haye remarkably large families.” On top of the short crops of the present year comes the war time prices of pork. Twenty dollars a barrel, and the top does not seem to have been reached. Cotton at 8 cents and pork at S2O does not present a very cheer ful outlook for the farmer. JAMES G. BLAINE. Ex-Secretary of State, James G. Blaine, who died last Friday, was buried at Washington on Monday. Whatever opinion be of some of his political acts, everyone must acknow ledge that the death of James G. Blaine removes one of the brainiest statesman of his time. Of late years he had differed so often with his par ty that it seems a stretch of the im agination to call him a Republican. To both of the leading measures of the present administration—the Mc- Kinley tariff bill and the Force bill —he was unalterably opposed, and he never shrank from making his op position known; and he is generally credited with having prevented this Government making a humiliating spectacle of itself by declaring war upon puny Chili. It was not bis po litics, but his staunch Americanism that gave to Blaine his fame, a fame of which the;American people, with out regard to political opinions, are proud. TRUCK FARMING. The early bird catches the worm, and if you are not early you may get left. The editor at Lumberton, gives the following advice that will be read and taken heed of by our readers it may interest: It is about time that some concert of action was being had in regard to the truck farming business. Last year about fifteen acres were planted in beans, and some money was made. Then we knew nothing about the business. This year we will start out with some experience in tne bean business and we have with us a man of considerable experience in the to mato Tomatoes pay much better, as a rule, than beans, than we can divide our land this year— putting in both beans and tomatoes. It is a very good idea to not plant too much of one kind. Tomatoes and beans go well together. Plant early and get the benefit of the high market price. Beam do well for shipping North. Another thing ought to be abolish ed is the custom of sending electoral votes, from all the States to Wash ington, by personal messengers. It is useless; it is absurd and it is quite costly, EDITORIAL AND GENERAL. Looking forward—the fellow who expects something nice in the office Hue. Jackson is on the steady growth of new enterprises. The latest is a big woolen mill. What France needs is anew deal, something like that ordered by the voters of the United States last Nov ember. The scuppernong yield promises to be enormous this year along the center and eastern part of the Mississippi coast. New Orleans has organized a stock company for the manufacture of paper from cotton seed hulls, with a capital of $500,000. Contracts have been awarded for the construction of two more hand some amored cruisers, for the United States Navy—the lowa and the Brooklyn. Hon. John G* Carlisle has a right to be the proudest man iu the United States; cot a single adverse criticism of his selection to be Secretary of the Trreasury has been made. Mr. Cleveland’s answer to the question ‘‘Will the McKinley tariff law be repealed?” is plain enough: to be read even by those who run. He said: “I’d like to know what else we are in power for?” All the saloon keepers in Jackson, with two exceptions, have been in dicted for selling liquor to minors. The penalty for this offense is a line from SIOO to 1000 and imprisonment for six months, half the fine going to the informer. There are 157,109 officials in the Ciyil service of the United States, whose salary aggregate about SIOO, 000,000 annually. We think Mr. Cleveland will be very conservative and very deliberate about making changes in these offices. Notwithstanding Senator Hill’s po sitive declaration of his intention to support Mr. Cleveland, bnsybodies are still trying to make it appear that he is marching around with a chip on his shoulder, which be has dared Mr, Cleveland to knock off. The Sardis, Miss., Reporter , in speaking of The Echo, says: “It is a credit to Bay St. Louis and the Coast, and deserves, and we hope enjoys, a liberal patronage. We en ter it on our exchage list with pleas ure, and only wish we could swap chairs with its editor for a few weeks.” A community where people sit with folded arms and wait for some other fellow to come along and build up and improve the place will sadly be left, or the people will. If by chance the “some other fellow” may come along it would prove unpleas ant for the folded arms, they would certainly be ousted. Unfold your arms. A Mobile [paper says: Toe South ern Lumber Manufacturers’ Associa tion meets in Mobile, February 15tb. This organization will be represented here by one hundred or more mem bers. Steps should be taken to give the association welcome. The mem bers all pay their way, but they will, of course, appreciate any courtesy that is shown them. $ One of the finest buildirg blocks of Greenwood, Miss., was destroyed by fire on Tuesday morning. The losses exceed $00,000; origin un known. The Echo deeply sympa thizes with the Delta Flag, whose material was completely lost, amount ing to $1,000; no insurance. S3 Tm pafhy also for the Enterprise who lost on printing office $3500, books and accounts $1800; insured for S2OOO. It is, in many instances, a shame tfyg way the majority of newspapers in Mississippi are dunning their de linquent subscribers. It is hard for the honest reader to ho bored with such unpleasant reading. Every pa per in Mississippi, with few excep tions, are calling upon their delin quents to settle up, aud most of the papers have resorted to abusing and exposing the culprits. The best of all is to carry a strictly cash newspa per business. It is better for the publisher to boast of a small and paid up list of subscri tiers than a long strings of names of mortals who take the; bomej paper and never ex pect to pay for it. . How Should Ton Plant Irish Potatoes? Some people say cut large pieces, if you would Lave a strong stalk. Others say, if you do, it will sour and will not come up. These people say, plant the peal and cut the core. Those people say, you will be cutting your crop before you plant. Some people say, plant very deep, for potatoes will come up through a raw-hide. Other people say, plant very shallow, otherwise you will miss a stand. Some people say, make the land very inch. Other people say, poor land always make the best potatoes. Some people say, always place the eyes up when you drop them. Others say, it makes no difference. Some people say, hill up your potatoes well. Others say it does no good. Will somebody please tell us how to raise Irish potatoes.—Lumberton Headblook. Capt. W. B. Keese, of Chautau qua. Miss., tells’THE Echo he has just planted potatoes by the methods of an Alabamian who has never lost a potatoe in twelve years. First spread a layer of pure manure one inch thick, plow the rows for the po tatoe and cover not too heavy. Over this place a layer of pine straw one foot deep. The straw will nof smoth er the seed, as one may suppose, but will protect. The vine will grow out of the straw, and when dead, harv vest your crop. The Early Rose and Peerless are best for seed. Do not cut the potatoe. The Captain pro mises to giye the result of his expe riment with this method. An appropriation of SIOO,OOO for representation at the World’s Fair has been made by the Kentucky Legislature. The best “condition powders" for all sorts of stock are good food and pure water. Add to these clean and comfortable quarters and you will have little use for patent nostrums. Editors Not in it. A Northern paper says: Down in Mississippi they have introduced hugging societies to swell the church treasury, and a paper gives the fol lowing scale of prices: Girls under 16, 15cts for a hug of two minutes, or lOcts for a short squeeze; from 16 to 20, 50cts; from 20 to 24, 75cts school inarms, 40cts; another man’s wife, $1; widows, according to looks, from lOcts to $3; old maids, Sets or two for a nickle, any time not limited. Preachers are not charged. Editors pay in advertising but are not allowed to participate until everybody else is through, and even then are not permitted to squeeze but old maids. “Handsome is th;u "handsome does,’’and it Hood’s Sarsaparilla doesn’t do hand somely then nothing does.
