The glad season of Christmas dawns again. The story of the birth of Christ in the lowly manger at a stable in Beth leham is told with all of its reverence, sublimity and sweetness of old and we commemorate the coming of the Re deemer of all mankind. Truly a season for rejoicing, for peace and good will and for the exercise of all that is good and ennobling. Then, in the proper spirit, let us re joice Let the gladsome bells peal forth in musical splendor and in joyous mer riment. Ring out the old, ring in the new, for the glad new year, too, dawns once more, and in the East of the Fu ture the shadows of the present year are fast ebbing and the rays of crimson tint are penetrating forth. Anew Christ is born, anew year is ushered in. In our minds, our hearts, our every action let the spirit of the season pervade and peace prevail and good will toward all men be the guiding star for our resolu tions as the star of Bethleham guided the footsteps of the three Wise Men toward the manger, where goodness it self serenely reposed. The good we derive from this world is the good we would do our fellow-crea tures —those in need of your succor — tne more needy than ourselves; to alle viate the suffering and to sympathize with the bereaved, and to render charity with lavish hand. Let t’ L tide be a season for your cba.iUcs lu the performance of good deeds is lodg ed that peace for a true merry Christ mas. We can then turn to the enjoy ment of the modem merry Christmas which time has so intensely commercial ized, having performed our duties like Christians to our Maker, our brother, ourselves. The Santa Claus spirit is another sub lime tradition of the day, and to the adult reader of these lines at the mere mention of the name of this Prince of Good Fellows, this Philanthropist from Gift Land, a flood of memories appear. What pleasant memories! Rapturous moments of childhood, when anticipa tion ran high and realization seldom failed unlike the years of today when cherished anticipations, fond hopes and pleasant longings are blighted by the idiosyncracies of Time and the stem mandates of Destiny. The years are fraught with disappointments and beset with arrows that sting deep and hard, but, too, the blue of heaven has smiled so benignantly upon us. The Light tnat never fails has shone upon us so res plendantly, depending much how we open our hearts to admit of the blessings and sunshine from the Divine Saviour, so let us not pause in retrospection but look forward and thank the Redeemer 1 for the glories that are born on Christ mas Day with His birth. Let us look not to the West of yesterday, but to the East of this Christmas mom and bask in the roseate tints of this new-born year. May Santa Claus come to all, young and old alike, and should we fail in re ceiving the gifts of intrinsic value, or of better value stiH which friendship stamps then let us appreciate all the more the attributes, the virtues, the ennobling traits, both of the heart and of the mind, which heritage by divine grace is ours, and let us strive for it, and thus our Christmas will be a merry one. ’Tis only noble to be good, Kind hearts are more than coronets And simple faith than Norman blood. —Tennyson. To its readers and others The Echo sends out the greeting: Merry Christ mas, A Thrice Merry Christmas! And a Happy New Year. Mr. E. C. Ballintine was a caller on The Echo during the week. Formerly a resident of this county, he is now lo lated at Waycross, Ga., in the auditing department of the Birmingham and Rail way Company. Mr. and Mrs. J. S.

After a two-week session the winter term of the Hancock county circuit court came to a close today, Judge McDonald disposing of an overcrowded docket. The case attracting the most attention and tried the first week was that of J. M. Tyler versus city of Bay St. Louis to recover damages to property caused by alleged defective drainage, decided in favor of the defendant. The prominent case of this week was that of the State vs. Asa Jarrel, charged with the murder of Samuel Kirklin, both of the Lacey vicinity, and resulting in a verdict of not guilty. The fines imposed and col lected by the court amounted to more i than $2,000, collected from “blind tiger” keepers, and will defray the expenses of the session. Elsewhere The Echo pub lishes the report of the gand jury. At the Sigma Chi’s Stag Supper, re cently given at Oxford by that fraternity of 'the University of Mississippi, The Echo notes with much pleasure and gratification the names of two young gentlemen from Bay St. Louis on the programme of toasts delivered on this occasion, to which were gathered legis lators, judges, lawyers, doctors and a host of professional and other prominent personages. The young gentlemen are Mr. J. A. Osoinach, who delivered this toast: “The Ladies;” Mr. P. S.McDon ald, “Our Great Fraternity.” Hon. Will T.

The firm of Bowers, Ne ville & Griffith will be dissolved, Judge Neville becoming general counsel for the Gulf & Ship Island Ry. The Echo wishes to acknowledge its thanks and appreciation of the many j complimentary expressions, both orally and written, on the occasion of our Hol iday Edition of last Saturday. The Echo strives at all times to represent Bay St. Louis and county to best advantage and in the most attractive manner, and that we have succeeded to a certain degree is pleasing to be told by our friends, and carries with It a reward far lasting than the dollars accrued from the enterprise. Mrs. C. Spotorno, assisted by her daughter Miss Julia, charmingly enter tained at her home in Citizen street, on last Saturday afternoon, the Maids and Matrons Euchre Club. The prizes were particularly well worth striving for and were captured by Mrs. G. R. Rea and Mrs, J, S. Duvol. The club will be en tertained by Mrs. S. L. Cowand on the occasion of the next meeting.

A quiet, but pretty wedding was cele brated Wednesday afternoon at 5 o’clock at the Church of Our Lady of the Gulf. The contracting parties were Miss Cath erine Spotorno and Mr. Gabriel Yves Blaize, both young people of Bay St. Louis. Shortly after the appointed hour, in time to the strains of the organ, so at*Jy presided over by Prof. Hemmersbach, the groom, escorted by his mother, en tered and was followed by Mr. Erasmus Olivari, acting as best man. Separated by a wide space, the bride followed, leaning on the arm of her uncle, Mr- Lazarus Olivari, preceded by the maid of honor, Miss Julia Spotorno. At the altar the prospective bride and groom and their attendants entered the sanctu ary, where they were met by Very Rev. Father Alois Van Waesberghe, who performed the solemn and impressive ceremony of the Catholic faith. The main altar, lighted with many candles, formed a fitting picture, and, the cur rent having been turned on, the electric lights around and about the altar, as the party entered, lent an unusual brilliancy and splendor. The bride, tall, graceful and stately, was a creature of loveliness. She was exquisitely attired in white messaline silk, trimmed with alenqon lace, cut bodice, with bolero effect of Irish lace, high neck, and at the throat wore a dia mond pin, the gift of the groom; a full skirt that hung in graceful and fitting folds, with shoes and gloves, completed the toilet. She wore a most becoming picture hat of white silk tulle and car ried a bouquet of bride’s roses, white carnations and hyacinths with maiden hair and asparagus fern, tied with long ribbon of white satin—a dream of floral splendor that was in keeping with the muchly - admired appearance of the bride. The groom looked handsome in the black conventional costume, as did also his best man. Miss Julia Spotorno was dressed in a creation of white silk chiffon, and wore a white hat trimmed with plum colored roses, gloves to match, and car ried a bouquet of white carnations. After the ceremony the bridal party and relatives of the contracting parties, who had witnessed the happy event, were driven to the home of the bride’s mother, Mrs. Widow Louis Spotorno, where an informal reception was held. Tne family being in semi-mourning, the wedding was an especially quiet one, yet the couple were liberally remem bered by their friends with handsome and substantial gifts, which were dis played in a private room at the recep tion, attesting well to the popularity and high esteem in which they are held, both at home and away. In addition to these a batch of telegrams were received during the evening. Mr. and Mrs. Blaize have gone to housekeeping in Bookter avenue, and no young couple ever started life more auspiciously than they. The bride is a daughter of the late Louis Spotorno and Mrs. Mathilde Spo tomo, a young woman of several accom plishments. A graduate of St. Joseph’s Academy, she is cultured and well equipped for the world’s battles. Asa token from her alma mater, the sisters of St. Joseph’s Academy ?nd pupils at tended the wedding ceremony in a body. Mr. Blaize is connected with the lo cal branch of the Postal cable and Tele graph company, holding a responsible and lucrative position, and is held in high regard by the company he repre sents. A telegram of congratulation and good wishes from the company’s headquarters at New Orleans w T as among the number received during the evening of the wedding, and he is well and fa vorably known in Bay St. Louis, the city of his birth. The Echo joins the numerous friends of Mr. and Mrs. Blaize in congratulat ing them on the occasion of so happy an event, and may the flowers of happiness, peace and plenty grow profusely along their pathway through life, and sun shine plenty to kiss and nutor the blos soms.
