Harper, the oldest newspaper man of the Stale, died at his home in Raymond last Saturday. The Echo deeply sympathizes with Ids bereaved family.

The cruiser “Montgomery” arrived in Mobile harbor Monday evening, drawing 23 feet of water. This means a great deal for that city’s harbor, but not half as much as that steamer’s trial of Alabama coal for steam purpose if will proves suc cessful. Thu president of the board of su pervisors of a certain Mississippi county is so unprogressive, narrow minded and prejudeied, that he re fuses to take his county paper, not withstanding that it is mailed to him complimentary. His re-election is now very doubtful. We extend fraternal greeting to “The Road to Wealth Leads Through the South,” anew magazine publish ed at Cincinnati, Ohio, and published by E. C. Robertson. The initial issue has reached our editorial sanc tum and its 200 pages team with solid and truthful literature of the solid South. Parties desiring to lo cate in this section can do nothing better than to procure a copy. In the death of Mr. Paul Conrad, mayor of Waveland, that town loses not only an excellent official but a true, generous and progressive citi zen. Ills presence In Waveland has assisted to build and beautify that town, and bis name will be remem bered for his public spiritedness and the many avenues of land he donat ed. Waveland to Mr. Conrad feels grateful and his loss it deeply mourns, WATER WORKS. We have repeatedly voiced the wish of the people relative to the wa ter work question now agitating the mind of every progressive and wide awake citizen of our city, yet noth ing is said or hcand from our city fathers. Can it bo possible that this indispensable necessity will be dis regarded? The absolute need of an Immediate step in this direction is too prominent for n rehearsal. Strike while the Iron is hot I The Dre of few days ago demonstrated the helplessness of onr condition in time of need and danger acd the cry for water was on the lips of every man who regarded bi Hume, Iris fireside, the cry is still fresh, forthe fire and its devastation is well re membered; but in a few more mouths—providing a repetition does not occur—people will have forgot t*n, water works will be regarded as superfluous, and wo will be as we have been, are now and probably will remain at the mere y of that destructive element! The geographical position of onr city, the close proximity of its houses makes tho sweeping away of the whole Bay, in onr present help - less condition, an indisputable fact. What bright prospects for those who have labored far years to secure what is dear to llio heart of all, a home ; and what protective assuran ces to the man cnitemplaling add ing one more structure to our city. The average stranger, who knows a thing or two, woiill never invest one cent of money in Improved real es tate wilh a “No water work sys tem” staring him in the face. The disadvantages of our pres ent condition arc numerous: It in vites waste, fear ajd destruction, be sides placing us aj the mercy of in surance corapaniii. Wc arc now, in some of our Realities, paying a higher rate of intirest than is being asked in larger ffties, yes, we may say in the largest of cities. Are these the inducenents through which the Bay will onqpilrage immigration? Is Bay ,mtu ifouiing? Docs t ,e toil ot uear, y one century Co| ,/ for naught? Arc the bcauti f,. structures which arc stretched cfing its beach but the playthings of a moment? Are the heart wrending cries which fill the air with the burn ing of every home worthy of no con sideration? Arc the smouldering ash es of what once, afforded pleasure, safely and shelter a pleasing sight? Is desolation so vciy amusing? Than why encourage it? The crimes of the savages in the wilds of Africa, are not in their nature, as brutal and barbarous as the crime which is to day inflicted on this community ! Let the person who thinks the Bay can do without water works go out on the water, a little distance from ashore, and obtain a bird’s eye view of one of the loveliest sights possi ble, let him see almost nine miles of beautiful homes all in one straight line, seemingly one large family, a round these houses are grouped some stalwart trees of all descriptions pre senting a truly beautiful and artistic spectacle, and then imagine his in spiring panorama drawn away by the work of a moment—go home then, yo apostle of retrogression, and repent of your grievous error. Do wc want more streets simply that we may have an increase of homes and the destruction be great er? However much the opening of streets and promiscuous improve ment may add to tbe beauty and de velopment of onr city they become unworthy of consideration when the greater necessity—water work —sug- gests itself. Do not let Ray St Louis stand in raid air suspended hy a flimsy thread the play thing of the sportive winds. Remove it from the abyss which yawns beteath ns. Give it the pro tection and assurance it deserves as a city and the common home of those who have struggled so earnestly and patiently to elevate her to the posi tion she now occnpies. Proclaim to the world that we are leaving the scattered and rugged dusk, with a crown of dying rays, for the clear light of advancement; announce, in ringing notes, that this folly shall be tolerated no longer, that the breath of progress beats within us, that we are on the onward march, that Bay St. Louis is worthy of the hibgest consideration and you will I have done your duty. THE PRESS. “One, dm]) of ink Makes millions think.” .When the immortal statesman am) character of journalism, Horace Greeley, gave birth to the foregoing quotation, he exampllflej nothing more true and noble than the influ ence ami power of the rewspaper, to which he wan an ardent co-worker and his intellect an ornament of the higher type. The newspaper furnishes the ink drops of distinctive characters and these influ ence the millions to think, producing the exercising of thought’s pawor. Tho destinies of the world are mani pulated by the gifts of thought, hence the progressive u ss which so notably marks the prs|Ms eta and thus the good work prOc'cMs. When the first American newspa paper, the Boston News-Letter, saw the dawn of its existence, little was tho usefulness to ensue and so rapid ly to develop was ever dreamed of— to influence, mould and guide the ideas of civilization to elevate man m ail lus spheres. This now ancient journalistic venture not only proved remunerative, but its usefulness in vited and successfully induced other similar bulwarks to stay the ravages of degradation, illiteracy and retro gression ; and soon the field of use fulness broadened to such an extent that tho American newspapers of to day number by the thousands. This alone is murder to all doubts and silences the heaviest argument if any argument at all can bo constructed in disfavor of the press. The big city papers are regarded in wonder and no one fails to recog nize the imposing monument of time, brains and money—a monument as lofty as the pinnacle of its grandeur. But why neglect to regard the coun try press, the paper that never tires to assist its locality, with the same sense of dignity and business consid eration tho city press receives? Did any one, comparatively reasoning, ever discover that the newspaper that tells of your relatives death, of J r * M/iu arrival, of your new wife your wiVe'i'fffifSAftiWfife, your mother-in-law visits you, that sympathizes with you in time of sor row, is equally deserving of as much credit as that of larger and more pre - tentious dimensions ? Consider the slender support the average country newspaper receives from the public and the numerous and varied difficul ties it has to contend with, and than weigh their respective merits in the balance ct your opinion and just con sideration will stcaey both evenly. There are country newspapers and country newspapers—some truly un deserving,but those depicted here are the average ones. The good country newspaper has made gentlemen of coarse men, educated ignoramuses, elevated morals, effaced evil blots, purified adulterated politics, secured legislation to purge the corrupted ballot box, made republics of dj nas ties, traced the origin of criminal proceedings, unrested rascals from their resting places, from high life to the gallows led cheaters, and let the writer for a moment ask in the words of Helen H. Gardner “what wrong doer fears tho pulpit? All wrong doers fears a fearless press!” It must he admitted that the source of the highest influence lies in the consolidated power of the press. The pen is mighty. Tmllifnl Truths. The proceeding, from the Balti more Americrn, is worthy of the space it occupies: “Contemplate the future of a section of country which has more coal and iron than all of Europe, one-half of all the standing timber in the United States, which raises three-fourths the world’s cot ton crop and which can manufacture at a lower cost than New England or Great Britain, which practically mo nopolizes the phosphate of rock de posits of the world, which can pro duce grain enough to supply Ameri ca and still not cultivate more than half of its soil, which has almost every mineral useful in art and sciences, which has an unequaled climate, which has a groat sea coast and rivers without number--think of such a combination, unknown else where, nnd then picture if you can the South of the future.” Bay St. Louisians who work never find lime to croalc. Now we know , who the croakers arc. A NEW EIU. Like the appearance of an eastern sun to light the da}’ foi our land, comes the good tidings of immigra tion from the North and North-west to light the future of our State and glorious and more bright than the western skies at cvening-tidc is the intelligence when wc learn upon what basis the plan is created. Immigration to the South sounds musty, but now that the railroad companies seem to have adopted the work the stimulation of immigration will now bo more extensively recog ( nizrd and the material beneficial re sults to accrue cannot be over color ed. Capt. Merry, the enterprising general passenger agent of the Illi nois Central, whose friends delight to bask in the sunshine of his genial ly, was in Jackson last week on an official visit and with Governor Stone end other prominent figures hold a meeting for tlio purpose of inviting from the exhausted lands of the West and North-west to the sunny, bright and incxhanstahlc lands of Mississ ippi. The meeting was one void of social executions; business and noth ing but genuine business was abso lute. Plans wore introduced and favored and an organization perfect ed. 'i'lio object of this body will not only be to populate the wild lands along the railroad line but all throughout the State—the central portion tho same as the northern, southern, eastern and western ex tremities, Mississippi has (he gonial and balmy climate and the fructiferous lands, no heavy frost nor drougth come to paralyze the agricultural pursuits of the fanner, and these catalogued alone are inducements sufficiently staunch for tho tillers of the soil who have for so long been vuiulessly coaxing the worn on! lands of different dimes. If truthfully and piopcrly set forth, the advan tages of Mississippi will readily be embraced by tho many who have found toil so arduous and living ns precarious in the loss favored regions. Land is good and cheap in one por tiere on'our VibaVi. rno Chin ate’ win ofi found more desirable. Come to Mis sissippi, you honest and deserving people, and join the South in its healthy condition of existence. ANTI-TOXINE. Of late considerable attention has attracted and been given to the new cure for diphtheria, “anti-toxine,” and after repeated experiments the new remedy is proving very effec tual, possessing all properties claim ed and furnishing the desired results. For this the whole universe owes a debt of gratitude to the French sa vant, Dr. Roux, a man not yet in his pri me, and who is successfully ex terminating diphtheria in a wholesale manner, and after taking the reme dy even raeasels and scarlitiua are easily eradicated. Microbes which locate themselves in the membrane of the throat multiplies and pro duces diphtheria; but unlike the bacilli belonging to other infectious diseases, they stubbornly remain, neither penetrating the blood nor system. But penetration of the cir culation which infects the body, is created from the deadly animalcules, secreting a poison ravaging violence called toxine. This poisonous toxine is extracted from the vie im and first in small quantities injected into the horse, a healthy and full grown young one, and in repealing the op eration by gradually increasing the dose, the organism of the animal finally revolts the poison, and be. comes not only impervious to the toxine, but destroys it, and from this singular result is duo the origin of the new substance. The deadly virus—-tire toxine—is injected into the shoulder of the horse, and the blood is drawn from the anatomy by puncturing the neck. This is anti, toxine and is injected under the skin of the patient similar to the injection of morphine. One dose is sufficient and soon the patient rallies, and the fatal toxine of diphtheria is silenced by anti toxine in thirty-six hours, i and the diphtheritic bacilli disap pear. Let the Democratic majority in Congress take advantage of the three months of life remaining and give us some simon pure Democratic leg islanon. That is just the tonic the I l>any needs. PRICK. 5 (TS I* Ell COPY. RBAI. I <TATR AUEXTB. Few pimple, if uny ru all, wo doubt ! ever give the class of hardworking ! people who come under the title of phis uvticl'- proper consideration of j their worili and benefit to the mate ' riel welfare of uuy community, either email or large. Unfortunately too many people think they profit too much off the salt of the earth and that their position is not of a suffi cient exaltation to correspond with the position they pose to occupy. If it were not for the irropresible agent lands would scarcely ever change hands and people never in duced to locate and invest their mon ey in a community. Heal estate agents stimulate the building, buy ing and selling of cities. Next to the acknowledged influence of a newspaper, the agent is a potent factor in the upbuilding of a town, and in most instance he is previous to the newspaper for it is him who first plans out the town for the paper to preside over its destinies, and why he is not more generally recognized is beyond comprehension. Where once reveled the frogs in croaking anti melodious notes, we find to-day their swamii abode of old crushed under the wheels of civilization and gigan tic buildings under the fantastic shadows of voluminous smoke gives animation to the scene. Who so marvelously brings about the change? The same in n who advertises, rents and sells your property. Give the real estate man his dues and when one comes to your town, treat him well, and though he is penniless, his energy and peculiar go aiicadncss which characterizes him, will contri bute to your town the same benefit, if not more, as well as the long-look ed for capitalists, who is to many places like things mythical. Hay St. Louis is so healthy that an item of this kind in a local paper of 1994 will not be surprising: “For healthfulness, this town is unsur passed. Nine doctors starved to death here this summer. The citi zens never die, and frequently men get so stiff they cannot move, and iip ih tuu gi Qfjkml them Bay St. Louis is a**i booming and we should feel thankful for the ab sence of that unreliable state, but the Bay is neither retrogressing. At this time, the same as of late years, new residences and buildings here and there are going up and other ma terial signs of improvements are visible and, unphaulorn like, arc developing into strong existence. Horses are now in less demand than ever, and, of course, the price is less commanding. The cauee is unknown to us, but hero is how a Kansas paper explains it: “The street cars are run by electricity, the threshing machines by steam and the Stale by a donkey.” If the capilafsts have lost faith in the Democratic administration, as republicans have constantly asserted, pray why arh they falling over each other in their efforts to get some of the bonds issued by a Democratic administration? % THE ECHO : I SOLICITS 3 I I 3ob printing. 11 r a! m b l=i Tim 1 Onr lUle < Are Reaftonuble* IGIVH XJ A TRIAL Anti be Convinced. ~ ; L (TdeMONTLUZINb i Chemist amt Pharmacist, r>KAMCR nr DRUGS, CHEMICALS AND PATEWP MEDICINES, .
