I '•j~~ ■■ - FREE tuition to all in Harris’ Busi ness College, Jackson, Miss. tf THE TEN CENT COUNTER at the Bay’s Mercantile Company during the past week had to be replenisned several times owing to the great demand for that class of goods. Mr. Osoinach will continue this the coming week so that those who were not served from this bargain department may have the opportunity. LOST —Small gold Masonic pin—be tween Catholic Church and Merchants Bank, on last Sunday. Reward, if re turned to Dr. Weston or Merchants Bank. It The Echo job department is busily en gaged on a large contract of stationery for the Peerless Oyster Company, which has changed its headquarters from New Orleans to Bay St. Louis. The Cumberland Telephone Company has revised its directory, and the new one is in the press of The Echo’s job department. Bay St. Louis is fast getting to be a school centre. Apart from the superior parochial schools, which are growing in popularity, the high school is drawing a class of patronage from abroad which will attract residentcrs to our place. This year among others there will be four students from Ansley, some from other parts of our county. Mr. George R. Rea has made a rare find along the numismatological line, as he calls it. A rare coin was exhumed from his front yard, bearing the date of I*ID. The coin has a face value of one cent and belongs to the reign of Charles the XIII fof the Netherlands and was coined just after the battle of New Or leans. Mr. George L’Hhote is here as as signee adjusting the affairs of the Favre Lumber Company. One of the improvements to Front street in the near future will be the re habilitation of the Mauffray stores. It is the intention of the owner to add an extra story to them and to use the up stairs as a dwelling. The entrance to the residence will be from the north cast side—a staircase 7 feet wide. Mr. A. A. Chaible, of Alaculsy, Ga., is seeking a -winter home here to get the advantages of St. Stanislaus College. Lem Armstrong, of Silver Creek, will arrive here in time to enter the city high school. This young gentleman is a kinsman of Hon. V. A. Griffith, with whom he will live. The ugly man’s contest in New Or leans and later here has created so much favorable comment that our friend, Hon. Richard Mendes, suggests to The Echo that it would be better to get up a lazy man’s contest. He says that he has about ten candidates to enter the con test and will furnish the names on appli cation. The octogenarian florist, Herr Freund, who lives on the extension of Washing ton street, in the rear of Bay St. Louis, came very near being killed while cross ing the railroad track a few days ago. He had a wagonload of plants on the track, when a freight car backed on his w T agon, totally wrecking it, but hurting neither the horse nor the old gentleman. Mrs. H. R. Piccaluga accompanied Editor Moreau and family on their west ward trip. Miss Mabel Cazeneuve has returned to resume her duties in the high school after a delightful visit to the “Great Smoky Mountains'’. The hotels of our city have been util izing the dull season by making greater preparations than ever for the winter trade. The Clifton has been already thoroughly renovated, and the Pickwick will soon have anew and modern annex built in place of the old wing on the northeast. Mr. John Shansy, the pro prietor, is now waiting for blue prints from the architect. Mr. Chas. E. Schaur, of Baltimore, has arrived. He will fill the position of secretary-treasurer of the Peerless Oys ter Company. Mr. V. A. Griffith and family have returned home from summer outing at Marietta, Georgia. On the return trip Mr. Griffith paid a visft to Washington, D. C., and Charlottesville, Va. Mr. Kenneth Graham is filling the position of depot agent at Pass Christ ian. Mr. W. M. Hodges has severed his connection with the Peerless Oyster Company and has returned to New Or leans. His many friends regret his de parture. Mrs. Corinne E. Green, of Lake Shore, is visiting friends and relatives at the Bay. Miss Mary Benton, the new primary’ teacher at the public school, arrived on Friday morning and will be the guest of Mrs. Rea during the coming session. Miss Benton, at a recent examination, received a license to teach anywhere in the State for a period of three years. Mr. H. Rubenstein and family, who have this summer occupied one of Mrs. Muller’s cottages, left for New Orleans on Monday by the way of Nashville, Tenn. , Will Chapman has received a scholar ship in the University of Louisiana and will leave for Baton Rouge as soon as the college opens. John Turner will matriculate in Tulano University, Geof frey Marshall and Grey Hickey will probably enter the University of Loui- , siana, and Percy McDonald will enter the freshman class at the University of Mississippi. This is a very good showing for the Bay St. Louis boys— all of the class of ‘OS of our city school. Architect S. R. Duval has prepared plans and specifications for the Pitcher residence, which will shortly be built on the lot formerly belonging to the Cow ands. Mr. Duval has in store a treat for the children of the town in the shape of a lecture with sciopticon illustrations on the historical subject, “The North- American Indian”. He will deliver this lecture and exhibit the pictures in the auditorium of the high school soon after the beginning of the session. Congressman E. J. Bowers is here from Washington for a few days. Next week he will return to the Capitol, from whence he will go to Purvis to at tend court and then here before return ing to Washington to resume his pub lic duties. It is with pleasure that The Echo learns that E. J. Bowers, Jr., has mat riculated in the Georgetown University, entering the sophomore class on exami nation. He had a certificate from our public school, placing him in the fresh man class, but preferred to enter higher and was successful. Hon. Mayor E. E. O’Brien has sub mitted copies of the blue prints of the new’ city hall to various architects and 1 builders oyer the State, and it is proba ble that there will be several builders to bid on the same Monday. Among those asking for specifications were Hall & Hall, of Jackson, Miss., and McDonald, of Pass Christian. It is presumed that the local contractors will also put in bids 1 m time. The Echo hopes that, all things being equable, the local bidders will be awarded the contract, and that the city hall w’ill be built with home labor and home material as far as possible. The board of health met on Thursday and issued permits to the members of the board of supervisors to enter tow r n for their regular monthly meeting. Mrs. Henry P. Dart, Miss Mary Dart and William K. and John Dart left Sunday forenoon for Philadelphia and New York on pleasure and at the same time accompanying Miss Mary to col lege. Dr. Turner is having anew iron roof put on his dwelling in Union street, and lat the same time will haye other im . provements done. Miss Benton came to Bay St. Louis via Nicholson, in order to avoid being cooped up in Mobile. Street Commissioner Banderet will soon let the contract for a dwelling on Main street, in the rear of his present abode. Mr. Banderet is a firm believer in the future prosperity of Bny St. Louis ana is substantiating hio :a a vc.a substantial manner. Mr. and Mrs. Chas. G. Moreau, Miss Marie Louise Moreau and Mrs. H. R. Piccaluga, Sr., reached Chicago, where they are at present visiting their rela tives, Mr. Charles W. Patton and fam ily, Noi 150(i Garfield Boulevard, one of the fashionable residence sections of that great city. Mr. Sherman, in charge of the me chanical department of The Progress, accompanied by his wife, left last Sun day for St. Lcuis, to reside there per manently. While here they lived in the Joseph Laurent house on Carroll avenue- The Echo is glad to learn of the con valescense of Mr. John Ogden, who re cently moved to Bay St. Louis. Mr. John Edwards has recently pur chuased a forty foot tug boat, “The Thistle”, which he will use in towing logs and lumber. WANTED TO LOAN OUT until the first of June for board and keep to responsible party a well broke family horse. Apply to TANARUS, L. Trawick, Bay St. Louis. Schoolteachers are getting very scarce in Hancock county. Superintendent Stockstill, who is now conducting the white examination at Nicholson, phones the editor, that only one teacher is standing the teachers’ examination, and that two are taking the agricultural supplementary examination. Of the latter our friend Mr. Craft, of the Wave land schools, was one who successfully passed the required average. The family of Mr. J. E. Merihl, of Nashville, Tenn., are among the recent arrivals. They will spend the entire season at the Bay. Mr. Cage, of the firm of Cage, Drew & Cos., expects to become a pennaneH 1 resident of Bay St. Louis and is now looking after a suitable place along the beach, either to rent temporarily or to purchase.. Mr. Horace Pitcher leaves Saturday for Cedar Grove Plantation, where he has accepted a very important position. Miss Rose Cromillcr, after a pleas ant summering with relatives here, has returned to New* Orleans. The month of September is a festive time at the beautiful home of Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Grace, of East Side. Misses Vivian, May and Virginia, as well ns Mr, Daniel, and Mrs. Grace have their natal days in this month, and from the first of September to the last the home is beautifdlly decorated and hospitality is dispensed. A unique way of cele brating these happy occasions is to have enacted charades, operettas, plays on a stage in one of the spacious salons. The music is furnished by an orchestra of the young ladies, and the players are all of the family, while the audience consists of the numerous friends of the young people who are fortunate enough to enjoy their friendship. Miss Louise Delcuse has been honored with the appointment to the princinal ship of the Arlington School, this county, by the trustees of that school. This is quite a compliment to the iite rary qualifications of Miss Delcuze, as well as to her executive ability and dis ciplinary powers, and The Echo pre dicts a successful career for her in her chosen profession. Miss Delcuse re cently stood an examination for a teach ers’ license before the county board, and received the highest mark of any of the applicants. In this connection The Echo desires to remark that no higher calling can be assumed by any young lady than to devote the years of her life to the instruction of the young, and no people can better honor them selves than by thus employing the choicest young ladies to instruct the youth of the land. Mr. M. L. Ansley, the efficient official of the L. & N. at this place after an ex tended vacation w’ith his family to the mountains of Tennessee has returned to his duties here. Mr. Ansley besides be ing a trusted official of the railroad cor poration has been honored also in a ci vic w r ay by being placed on the Board of Trustees of the city schools in which he is most deeply interested. He is pos sibly the youngest school trustee in Mississippi and certainly one of the most enthusiastic. Norman, the fisherman, attracted all the office force of the Echo out to the front on Friday, by shooting a gun and killing a Colymbus Peliasgiaticus Striata, a waterfowl that had wnderd over two thousand miles from its accust omed haunts. This bird is sometimes called a Loon and has a voice that* can be heard for a distance of sevaral miles. William Chapman, Adam Lorch and the two Pitcher boys spent a few’ days ahunting up on Bayou Cadet with the usual success. They made the trip in the “Virginia”, which weathered the gale on the homeward trip in her usual graceful manner. It is reported that, while on this camp hunt, one of the young gentlemen mentioned above sep arated himself and wrote the following idyll to his best girl in Bay St. Louis, which The Echo herewith reproduces. REMINISCENCE. When the sun sinks to rest, And the star of the West Sheds its silver light over the sea, What sweet thoughts arise As the dim twilight dies? For then I am thinkiug of thee! Oh, then, crowding fast, Come the joys of the past, Of memories of moments gone by, Like stars peeping out From the firmament about And the deep silent depths of the sky! Then welcome the night, With its soft, holy light! In its presence my heart is more free, The rude world to forget. Where no pleasures I’ve met Since the hour 1 parted from thee. Mr. and Mrs. George Muller onter ained the young folks Tuesday night at a donkey party. Forty-eight little tots ranging from five to twelve years of age, engaged in the merriment of pin ning on the tail. Little Letitia Nicaise won the first prize for girls, while Ida Prats received the second and Bessie Gallopy the third. The first boy’s prize was awarded toC. Bontemps, the second to D.Bourgeris, and the third to Charles Muller. The booby prizes were awarded to Ruth Cazeneuve and Albert Prats. Our friend,JMr. Reuben Farmer, came I to our sanctum on Thursday and an nounced an addition to his family, a young lady, who will be a permanent visitor in his house on Jefferson Davis avenue, Wayeland. Another artesian well has been bored by Mr. Sanger. This one has a splendid flow’ of four hundred erallons per minute. It will be coupled w r ith the ones that he has already and with those still to b'’ sunk and all together will furnish the city with a copious flow of pure w'ator. Mr. H. D. Gillara, the front street confectioner, has been very sick for a few days, but is now on the road to con valescence. Next week the Echo will contain interviews with the leading merchants of Bay St Louis on the fiscal year that ends with Sept, thirtieth. All things considered it is thought that there will be a better showing than would be anticipated. / Master Charles Tarut who has become a familiar figure on the streets of Bay St Louis, and who has been visiting his grandmot her Mrs, M. C. Bach el on Carroll Avenue left for New Orleans j today. Mr. A. L. Stokoe has already ordered i v Ia twenty five ton ice plant whir-a w' •be delivered here o ■ t.n n o ... .a;:try.

On next Friday and Saturday there will be a great RUMMAGE sale at the store next to Mr, Jos. Mau Trays. The proceeds of this sale will *o to wards improving the Episcopal Cau :h building. The ladies of the cburdi will be os hand at the Rummage Stcre on Thurs day next to receive oed and eve.ybo’... is solicited to contribute. Anything, “the ladies say,“ will be acceptable, from an ol i tin pan with a hole in it, or an odd shoo, to a c ornei lot with a house on it. Old east clothing, buggy cushions, whips, fish ing tackle, or anything sal’tble, will be received and sold and the proceeds used to paint and otherwise improve the church on Front street. In connection with the rummage sale on Friday and Saturday nights refresh ments will be served at the store. CITY HALL NEWS. Next week’s Echo will contain the financial statement of the City of Bay St Louis for the fiscal year ending Sep tember the thirtieth. The showiug is excellent, and despite the heavy quarantine expenses which could not have been provided for the regular budget of expenses the city makes a better record tnan ever before in the history of the town and shows that the city fathers have planned well. Even,* department of the budget has a credit to its account, but the largest credit to be carried over to the comfng year will be the school fund, which is more than $850.u0 against 84. SS last year The judgement fund has been wiped out, and when the money comes in to the treasury for the sales of bonds there will be to the credit of that fund $(3244.53, this independent of the purchase price of the lot which was a thousand. Mayor Obrien, Mr. Mendes and Mr. Conway have been busy during the week signing the bonds which will be delivered on the first as soon as signed. Work will begin on the new city hall next month and the same will be rushed to completion, and when completed the city will have another institution of which to be proud. The Echo desires to especially mention the neatness or all the town records which have been examined this week, and thinks that one would have to search far and wide to find any that would equal them either in accuracy or neat ness. All this is due to the careful painstaking assiduity of our worthy clerk, Mr. Richard Mendes. To the nasters and Owners .. of .. Oyster Boats: THE TREASURE BAY OYSTER COMPANY takes pleasure in announc ing 1 to the Masters and Owners of oyster boats, that its factory located at Three Mile Bayou, in the' Louisiana Marsh, has been completed and is ready for business. The company will employ from fifty (50) to one hundred (100) shuckers, and will do a large trade in shucked oysters. The factory is built on Shell Point, inside, at Three Mile Bayou, on the water’s edge, and has a a wharf one hundred and seventy (170) feet long, running out into deep water. Pure, sweet water from an artesian well, flowing 50 gallons per minute, is carried by pipes out on the wharf, and is free to all boats, which can fill their tanks and barrels by simply turning on the hose. The company has a large commissary store over the factory, containing a large and well-selected stock of wines, liquors, groceries, clothing and boat supplies, of every kind, which are sold at very reasonable prices. The company pays excellent prices for oysters, giving full value for them, ac cording to quality, and pays CASH for all purchases. When more oysters are offered than the company needs on any day, it buys and beds them in the wa ters around the factory. Should any boat come out to the fac tory without a license, the company will send in to New Orleans for the li cense, and will get the boat a permit to go fishing imir -diately in the meantime. Advances will be made to responsible boats which come into the marsh un provided. Boatmen will find it to their advantage to call at the factory as soon as they ’s fishing. Your patronage is solicited. TreniU.c L;y Oyster Cos. LEGAL - NOTICE.

A daring attempt at robbery on last night has put the town on the qui vive this morning and a strict watch out will hereafter be kept for the trespassers. The attempt was first made on the house of the Misses Chapman. The thief made an attempt at the blinds, and had a light in his hand by which he was easily seen, a short rather stout negro. He was scared away from this residence by the Misses Chapman and then made a second attempt on the house of Mrs. Lilius, where he sought entrance through the blinds. He was frightened away by the screams of the occupants of this house, but was seen by Mr. W. M. Wallace who came to the rescue and drove away the burglar. Last Saturday evening Master Er hart entertained his friends in honor of his eighth natal day, The principal game of the evening was pinning the tail on the donkey. Master Harry Boy le won the first prize and Miss Alice Haas got the consolation prize. The young hostess was the recipient of many presents. Dr. and Mrs Wallace Wood have re turned to New Orleans for the winter. Mrs A. B. Blakemore and family have returned to New Orleans, Mrs James Kitchen has returned to the Bay and is at home at Ceder Point. Mrs V. E. Morrison and her two pret ty granddaughters Misses Blossom and Lilah have bid farewell to friends here for the winter season, haying returned to New Orleans. Mr. Frank Jacobs, the bachelor mer chant prince of Second str., spends his interim between shops in picking out speed on anew typewriter that he has recently purchased. He says that the next purchase that he will make of a personal nature will an Antomobile. From the number of inquiries that are being made about the opening of the public school which will be on Monday it is thought that there will be a large opening. Miss Marie Armitage, late of Ansley, will be engaged in teaching during the coming scholastic year in one of the rural schools near our city. E. J. Bowers. Jas. H. .Neville. V. A.
