Owing to tbo loss, breakage and pi of type incidental to our flight from the lire. The Echo, although kindly assisted, is being issued this week under adverse cir cumstances, and it is reasonable to sup pose that all shortcomings will be ovor looked. Tun Puumshf.b. THE FIRE. During the past week Bay St Louis lias been the scone of a most disastrous conflagration, one that has wiped away about the most important and active por tion of the city, and ns a gener al result which in a measure moans much to the detriment of the community’s interests. This time of the year, the dawning of the most prosperous season, stamps the calamity far greater than its occurrence at any other time for it is well known that the bridging over of a long and extremely dull winter is by no means anything but a strain on business solidity, and it was at this time the rays of that light of full and plenty were giving life to hope and encouragement. Notwithstanding how active the work of rebuilding, it will require considerable time for the utter obliteration of the calamity. However, the extent of ruin, had the high wind prevailed which immediately arose follow ing the control of the flames, would have been far greater and in this midst of gloom and sad ness there is space for rejoicing and much to he thankful for. That it might have been worse is well to say. Already contracts are being made for rebuilding, and as well as the largest of fires in towns have been their making then let us hope for the best and try of the worst to make the best. A A INCENDIARY. That the origin of Wednesday morning’s fire, in which so many thousands of dollars were lost in a space of so short a lime,is a ques tion every effort possible should bo made to not lot go unsolved. Circumstances are too numer ons and evidences too positive to say the fire was not of an incen diary origin, and editorially we opine likewise. The time of oc currence, the initial course of the belching flames and the rapidity of the beginning alone tell the work is a diabolical act, the idea more criminal than that of a red handed assasin, the conception of an arch-fiend; an escape from the depths of hades. Strange a fire to originate in two different places remote from the other, and to spread with that sameness which might have char acterized one. And more strange yet to consider the many peculiari ties connected with the subject. Our people as a rule arc an up right and peaceful one and be sides the consideration of the loss entailed the thought alone that the perpetrators of £0 gross an outrage are in our midst should spur them to action tilffW time the criminal is captured, and when captured the punishment best will doubtless suggest itself. The citizens of Greenwood are vigorously agitating the import ance of putting in waterworks. For such improvements there is no better time than at present. It is now hoped the opponents of water works have been con verted. All-Levee Prattle, It is quiie evident that those of our exchanges and glher friends have reach a conclusion with out scientific calculation or thought. Here is from the Greenwood Delta Flag: It is amusing to read the discus sion going on among our lull breth ren about the levees. The Sea Const Kobo asks of the Greenville Democrat, ‘-Now will our contempo rary tell us why repeated overflows occur in the face of tj* building of the levees higher cami year?” We can answer for the part of our levee district. 1 hey don*t. Leflore coun ty has not been overflowed since 1884; our population has largely in creased, and the number of people owing homesteads has doubled since the people have become convinced that the levee protects us. The mis erable pittance we have received from the goverraent docs not amount to anything. We have paid for our levee and we are pleased with them, and regret very much that they do not please our hill contemporaries/** Wo have never heard of a Untied States engineer who had studied the question that opposed the hnlldinj, of levees or expressed an opinion that the water could not be held in the Mississippi river. The river was C feet higher this year than ever before known on account of the enormous rainfall thousands of miles from u. We want the levees, brotheren, and will never have another overflow. We hope jon will agree with us that it pleases us and doesn't hurt you. A Lively Time. Gov. McLaurln is working hard on his message to the legislature which will be convened in extra session at an early date. It is our opinion that that extra session will be one of the scrappingcsl and most beligcrent bodies ever assembled in Mississippi since reconstruction times. Were wo a member of that body a good gun would be a part of our impedimenta in starling to the scat of the coming Jaw war. Picket firing commenced when the two Senate and House com mittees on ways and means met at Jackson recently to formulate a plan before hand to meet the emergency. —Booneville Piaindealcr. Betcherboots it will bo lively. With the levee ring fighting Anso and Anse hitting back at the levee ring; witli Glover of Coahoma county brandish ing a icsoiution to impeach Judge McLaurln oi Vicksburg for taking too much “red lickor” for his sto mach’s sake; and with a plantoon of senators threatening lo investigate some of the governor’s appointments, lliingj will he very lively. In fact there will be such a row as lo make people at a distance think we have imported the populite legislature from Kansas’ And the worst of it all is that the tax payers will have to foot the bills,—Meridian Herald. Pearl River Echoes. Mr. C. C. Capers was a visitor to Ocean Springs Sunday. Mr. John Orr returned to Flo renyille Saturday evening. Mr. R. C. Fieri spent several days in •Plaquemine, La., this week. Major J. L. Pierson visited his family in Nw Orleans Sunday. Mr. Dan B. Favrc, of Missis sippi City, paid a brief visit to his parents hero Sunday, Misses Angeline Favre, Katie Favre and Eunice Boyer returned to school in New Orleans Monday morning after spending Easter with their parents. Miss Stella Fieri of Bay Saint Louis paid a short visit to her brother, Mr, R. C. Fieri, last week. Mr. S. Sutton visited his fami ly at Moss Point Sunday. The steamer Earl returned Sat urday night after her regular win ter “cruise” uji Pearl river, and is now docked for the summer months. Mr. S. T. Holmes has returned from Madisonville, La., where he has been inspecting a cargo of lumber. Mr. and Mrs. C. D. Orr gave a delightful dance Saturday evening last which was largely attended by the people of Logtown and Pearlington. Diavolo. There is a kick coining and when it will come it will boa gen eral and big one. Think of our city, for years never without a nigh! clerk at the telegraph office, now void of that accommodation. It is a necessity which our people should not suffer without. The N. O. Times-Dennorat suffered much this week owing to the lack of wire facility, as aforostatod. In iSiffi, The Echo Building had all of its contents moved to the street and narrowly escaped the ravages of the storm, the building being moved from its (pillars; in 1897, fire has caused a repetition of an awful threat, but fortunate ly on Jbolh occasions, although narrowly, w<> have escaped, the latter time being miracle like. With the destruction this week of the Spotorno store the Bay loses one of its oldest landmarks, it having been erected in 1850— almost a half century ago. It was erected by the old Toulmo, origi nally intended as a beef market for which purpose it served and since has been the location of va rious and many establishments. Now wo have hud another big fire, as usual, the steam-ongino fire-eom puny-waterworks thirty days’ agitation can now bo expect ed—and results unexpected. Ine snt"rtaiiiinev‘.-Fr(lp:;.'o be given for the benefit of sufferers is a most notewoi'' undertaking.

According to the latest compula tion, there are 14 Catholic archbish ops. seventy- four bishops, with 10,- 752 clergy. 9670 churches, 5189 sta tions and chapels and a Catholic pop ulation of 9,596,427 in the United —Stales.

Growing Children One-third of all the children die before they arc five years old. Most of them die of some wasting disease. They grow very slowly; keep thin in flesh; are fretful; food does not do them much good. You cap’t say they have any disease, yet they never prosper. A slight cola, or some stomach and bowel trouble takes them away easily. SCOTT'S EMULSION of Cod-liver Oil with Hypophos phites is just the remedy for growing children. It makes hard flesh; sound flesh; not soft, flabby fat. It makes strong bones, healthy nerves. It changes poor children to children rich in prosperity. Book about It free lot the asking.
