Mr. and Mrs. Bernard E. O’Connor entertained at a dinner of twelve covers Thursday evening at Roundy’s, compli mentary to Hon. Joseph F. Cazeneuve and family. An elaborate menu was served, and the evening passed quickly and most delightfully. Mr. O’Connor made an ideal host and his lovely young bride a most gracious hostess. The Diamond Minstrel Company, a local organization of well-known young gentlemen, held its first regular, busi ness meeting for the season on Wednes day, and an election for officers resulted as follows: President, William Sick; secretary, John Jenks; treasurer. Geo. Sick; general manager, Joseph Killeen. The company will give a number of pri vate performances to their friends dur ing the summer season. Charles Breath, Jr., rarrowly escaped serious in jury Tuesday morning while out driving with members of the family. It appears, while passing the scene of the church and convent buildings. Front street, the horse shied at the sound of a steam engine working a der rick, and the jerk to the vehicle threw the little fellow forward into the street. He was taken to Evans’ drug store, where, alter an examination, it was found that no bones were broken, as was feared, and no internal injuries had been He was later examined by the family physician, and the results of the examination were the same. A solemn, yet beautiful, event was the First Communion exercises at St. Jo seph’s Chapel, Cedar Point, on last Sun day morning, at 2 o’clock, when a class of twelve children received into their hearts, for the first time, their Maker in the true body and blood. Rev. Father Husser, who had prepared the class during the several months past, offici ated at the mass and administered the holy sacraments. During the ceremony he delivered a few remarks appropriate to the occasion, well delivered and equally as well received. Miss Edna Brandao, who has had the parochial school in charge the past winter, and who had assisted in preparing the First Communion class, presided at the organ during the mass, and St. Joseph’s choir rendered the music for the occasion. Gounod’s Ave Maria was rendered at the offertory. Mrs. W. T. Adam and A. Miss Wagner had the decoration of the church in charge, and, during the mass the class was under the watchful eye of Miss Wagner. The boys and girls receiving their First Communion were: Alice Adam, Katie Adam, Ani ta Riddle, Laura Dambarino, Stella De moran,Nita Martinique, Stella Benve nudi, John Dambarino, Alvin Saucier, and three colored children whose names the reporter could not ascertain. The death of Miss Alice Treat Hunt, wife of Lester Lonergan, is announced in the press dispatches from Los Ange les, where the end came on Sunday last. Death was due to pneumonia, resulting from a cold contracted one night while returning to her hotel from the Belasco Theatre, where Miss Hunt was filling the role of leading lady for the season. Her husband is visiting his old home in Ireland, and it is expected the body will temporarily be interred in Los Angeles. Alice Treat Hunt was no stranger to the Bay St. Louis" public. Asa girl she lived here with her mother, and in later years was better known as leding lady of the several playhouses from sea son to season where melodrama held the boards. In Bay St. Louis, too, she ap peared; onetime at a benefit perform ance at the convent hall and another time at the Osoinach Opera House. She was a personal friend of Mrs. Bernard Shields, summer resident of Waveland, and was frequently a guest at the family home. An infant 6 months of age is the only child. As will be seen from the proceedings of the city council, published elsewhere in this issue of The Echo, the mayor has appointed a committee to investi gate, and report on, the opening or fur ther continuing of Nicaise avenue and Toulme streets clear through to Carroll avenue. This disposition of the matter of opening new streets is in keeping with the progressive spirit of the pres ent administration and one that will find hearty support and material co-opera tion from every right-thinking citizen and property owner. While streets, in a measure, cost to keep up, new terri tory opens up so many fields and offers possibilities for further improvements, which increase the revenues of the city. Just as business begets business, so every municipal improvement and ex pansion are “getters” of better things. “Nothing succeeds like success” ap plies very aptly in this case. The Bay Pictorium, W. A. Sigerson’a moving picture theatre, threw open its doors to the public on Saturday night for the first time. Everything new, spic and span, and, with anew and high priced apparatus, the working of the pictures has been highly satisfactory, and the crowds each night are well tes tifying to the popularity of this first class place of amusement. It has been truly said of the Pictorium that nothing was cheap but the price. There is a change of performance every night—no two nights the same—and the films are of the latest and best. Pure and whole some amusement is afforded, and noth ing suggestive or anything to offend the most fastidious taste is offered. Mr. Sigerson, with his enterprise, is a public benefactor and should receive the sup port of the best element of the city. Miss Lorena Guerra entertained de lightfully Saturday evening at a “Leap Year hop” at “Leah Villa”, the beau tiful home in Washington street of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. H. F. Mattox. The devotees of Terpsichore started their pastimes at 9 o’clock, and, when midnight arrived, a most pleasant even ing had been enjoyed. Miss Guerra was assisted in receiving by her mother, Mrs. Mattox, and sister, Miss Leah Guerra. Delectable refreshments were served and sweet music was discoursed by a string band, hidden in an alcove of the spacious dining room, cooled by re freshing sea breezes wafted from the beach front, which stole in by liberal whiffs from the many openings. Mrs. Allen J. Bordelon, of Marksville, La., is visiting her mother, Mrs. L. Spo torno, and family, and will remain for the summer months, while Mr. Borde lon, who is a candidate for district at torney, will make an active canvass in the interest of his candidacy. The many friends of Mrs. Bordelon, formerly Miss Adele Spotomo, welcome her visit to their midst again, and it is hoped Mr. Bordelon will succeed in his political as pirations, the indications, we under stand, for such being extremely favor able, the young attorney being not only an adept disciple of Blackstone, but a young gentleman well known and popu lar wherever he goes. Miss Lillian Bayer, the well-known leading lady of the Dauphin Theatre, at New Orleans, and who was a decided success the past winter season, has taken a lease for the summer of one of the Bokenfohr cottages on the beach front, and is spending the season in Bay St. Louis, resting and preparing for next season, when she will resume her role in stock company. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ebeling Mehr tens visited Bay St. Louis friends Sun day, returning to New Orleans the same evening. They were guests of their friends, Hr. and Mrs. Bayiey, at the residences!

Prof. William Woodward and Miss Woodward are abroad for the summer. Mr. and Mrs. W. A.

Dun bar and baby are domiciled the O’Brien villa for the summer months. Mr. R. Fulton O’Brien is at home from New Orleans for the summer. County Superintendent of Education John Craft is having constructed a com fortable and attractive cottage in St. Charles street, thus contributing to the further upbuilding of the city and show ing his faith in the value of Bay St. Louis dirt. Blanks T. Turner is disposing of the stock of his general merchandise store in Union street and will devote his en tire attention in the future to the inter est of the local agency of the Standard Oil Company, for which concern he has been the representative for some few years back. Miss May Edwards, after a season of faithful and hard work at the Bay St. Louis school, will leave within the next few days for the West, and will spend the summer at Los Angeles and visit San Francisco, Cal. Her friends and pupils wih her a pleasant journey, a delightful stay and safe return. Although on crutches at this writing, Anthony Thiery is recovering from a very lame foot, caused by stepping on a nail while working on the Taconi building, at the head of Main street, some two weeks ago. Dr. de Montlu zin attended the injury, and to his at tention the young min’s escape from serious results is due. Mrs. Charles Garvey and daughter are here from New Orleans at their sum mer home in Waveland and are prepar ing for a steamer trip to New York City, and will spend the summer visit ing at Atlantic City and other places in that vicinity. Before returning home they will visit relatives at St. Louis, Mo. Accompanied by the mother superior and sisters, the young ladies of St. Jo seph’s Academy attended the early per formance of the “Pictorium” on Mon day evening and enjoyed thoroughly the programme of that evening, one that was calculated to, and did, bring forth much laughter. The perpormance lasted about thirty minutes, and the pictures \v:re all that could be desired. Mr. H. S. Lelius is here from Hatties burg, spending a few days with his family at their beautiful home on the beach front. Mr. Lelius is looking for a desirable location in this city for busi ness, and in the event he should suc ceed in his desire he will continue both stores. His place of business at Hat tiesburg is one of the most representa tive in the Magic City, and it was the writer’s pleasure recently to pay that place a visit. t Hon. W. W. Stockstill has returned home from Oxford, Miss., where he has been studying law at the State Univer sity, and, after a season’s study, he finds he will be able to take the bar ex - amination and hang out his “shingle”, ready for business. He will return to Oxford in the fall and by December re ceive his diploma. Mrs, Stockstill re turned with him, having spent the last month at Oxford. Their friends are glad to welcome them home again. Mr. John Osoinach, of the Bay’s Mer cantile Company, met with a painful accident on Sunday afternoon, and as a result he is partially crippled and suf fers much inconvenience. While on the beach sands in front of his home he at tempted to bend with his left foot a 20-p. nail protruding from a piece of wood, and in so doing the nail refused to yield to the pressure and penetrated the shoe into the ball of the foot. With difficulty the nail was dislodged, and the wound bled profusely. Mr. C. H. Robinson, Jr., secretary - treaaurer of the Imperial Naval Stores Cos., Ltd., left on Tuesday night for At lanta, Ga., where today at high noon he will wed Miss Eleanor Gaillard at the beautiful family home in East street.

J RED HOT Says: For four years our dady has given the feed business some good deal of attention, in fact until he got us on his hands the grain business almost entirely consumed his time. lie says with plenty of money and credit, chiefly the latter, he has done a nice business and accumulated barrels of—experience, and, incidentally, a few of the gold and silver eagles as well. From what we can hear tossed about on the street corners he is about the only man who has ever conducted a feed business in Bay St. Louis suc cessfully to speak of. Why is it that one man has done what others failed to do? Well, that’s the way it goes, the world over. There will always be opportunities for the right kind of man. Just after starting in business / here our daddy had a racket with one of these Solomons of Xew Orleans because the aforesaid wise man sent him some bad feedstuff. After a hot correspondence this man of great and long experience says to daddy: “Young man, we predict you will not be in business long, unless you change your way of doing business,” He meant unless pa just accepted without a kick (just as almost anyone does) whatever was sent him. Well, pa kept on kicking apd keeping the best stuff to be had. His business kept growing; his prices were correct. lie is still doing busi ness at the same old stand at the depot. Buy everything in straight car lots, and we don’t believe his old customers can better themselves by changing. If you pay cash, come and buy your feedstuffs from us. If you don’t pay cash, buy from pa. He will treat you right. JUST RECEIVED TODAY-6-3=’oß.

Dr. R. de Montluzin, President of Board of Health, Instructs City Health Inspectors. Dr. R. de Montluzin, president and executive officer of the City Board of Health, has issued specific orders of in struction to the Health Inspectors, Peter Capdepon and John Dupont, who have started upon a house to house inspection within the city limits. The campaign of inspection this year will be very severe, and any property owner disre garding orders will be dealt with accord ingly- President de Montluzin’s official in structions are as follows: You are requested to carefully inspect all properties within the city limits; ex amine closets, sewers,backyards, vaults, stables, hog pens and beach. See that hog pens are not too close to house or neighbors’ residence; that they are kept clean, and do not constitute a nui sance. If vaults or cesspools are offensive, the proprietor is requested to have it disin fected as soon as possible with disinfect ant best suited for the case. Sulphate of iron mixture with crude carbolic acid being the cheapest as well as the best for ordinary purposes. It will be your duty also to examine fish markets or shops; see that a;l spoiled fish is buried in the giound, and lime thrown over it before covering the hole. Notice particularly if any anti septics are used in preserving fish, shrimp, etc., such as formaldehyde or boric acid, chloride, etc., as such prac tices are clearly against all rules of pub lic hygiene, and punishable by law. You must also carefully examine public mar kets and their meat boxes and all rotten meats must be destroyed and their shops during summer months must be kept scrupulously clean. It is important to warn all the resi dents on the beach front that no sewer will be tolerated that empties foecal mas ter in the lake. Nothing but bath tub drains are alowed to flow to the beach. All property holders are requested to keep their beach fronts clean. Weeds, old papers and garbage of all sorts must be burnt, raked or destroyed in some way. Where people are instructed by the inspector to remedy a declared nui sance, they must see that it is done within fiye days, otherwise action will be taken at once by the city authorities. ’ Bean Kind You Hate Always Bougnl Signature i I c j I XLh e Hmerican Xafc£, I I A Shoe for Women.
