A special meeting of the Board of School Trustees for the city of Bay St. Louis was held Saturday evening at ihe office of Secretary Jos. E.

Growth of the Bay St. Louis Public School. The following tabulated statement of the total enrollment and average attend ance at the Bay St. Louis Public School for a series of years, as indicated, shows a healthy, growing sentiment in favor of the public school system of educa tion: AV.

Franz, presi dent of the Third District Bank, New Orleans, and tutor for the children of the late Martin Bernard, who was killed in this city by the second coast train on Sunday morning, March 20th, was here in the interest of affairs of the deceased man’s estate, and, by a decree of the recent term of chancery court, secured the deposit of cash from one of the lo cal banks, which was to the credit of Bernard when he met with the disast rous accident. Mr. Franz was accom panied by W. L. Huttmann, superin tendent of the Lutheran Orphan Asy lum, at Now Orleans, of which institu tion the children are inmates. While here the gentlemen took possession of Bernard’s household effects and turned them over to Marshal R. J. Murtagh, with instructions to dispose of them to the best advantage of the orphans. Miss Maggie Cottrell, daughter of Rev. and Mrs. T. B, Cottrell, of this city, graduated with high honors last night from the Central High School at Scranton.

The closing exercises of the Bay St. Louis public colored school took place last night at the Promote Hall. A lengthy and interesting programme was excellently rendered and well received. The audience was a large one, and the best of order prevailed throughout the evening. The concluding exercises will take place tonight at the same place. This year’s first communion class by the children of the parish of the church of Our Lady of the Gulf will take place tomorrow, Sunday. Owing to the con tinued illness of Bishop Heslin, at his home in Natchez, the conferring of the rites of confirmation will not take place tomorrow, but has been indefinitely postponed. Mrs. J. S. Borstand friend, Miss Jane Hunter, are preparing to leave Bay St. Louis in the near future for a tour of Europe. They will spend part of the summer in Switzerland, and will also attend the Passion Play as produced by the peasants at Oberammergau. This is their annual European visit, and may it be as pleasant as on other occasions. Quite a blow was experienced here on Monday morning at an early hour, and it was thought by many that the comet was again responsible for the irregu lar behavior of the elements. However, the wind’s force was of short duration, and no damage ensued save the blowing down of dilapidated outhouses, fences, etc. Cards have been received in this city announcing the birth of Murray Bram well McCarley, Jr., Tuesday, April 26, 1910.

The last might be first, the first might be last; so, if you are last, don’t be down in the mouth, but wake up! get busy! and—-win the piano! Remember, it is going to be given away, absolutely free.

BEAUTIFUL ADDRESS 1 TO THE GRADUATES Bay St. Louis High School By Mr. A. J. Osoinach at Commencement Exercises Last Friday Night Ad dress Well Received and t he Aut horComplime nted. A noteworthy feature of the com mencement exercises at the Bay St. Louis High School on last Friday night was the address to the graduating class, de livered by Mr. A. J. Osoinach, connect ed with the New Orleans Daily Pica yune, and son of our esteemed towns man, Hon. John Osoinach. The beauti ful address speaks for itself, comment unnecessary, and The Echo takes a dis tinctive pride in reproducing in full ver batim the address, as delivered: (Reported especially for The Sea Coast Echo.) It was with a feeling of unalloyed pleasure that I accepted the invitation of Professor Ives to address you here this evening. It is with a sense of pe culiar gratification that I embraced this opportunity to talk to you, the gradu ates of the Bay 3t. Louis high school, an institution of which I claim the proud distinction of being an alumnus. It seems but yesterday that I stood where you do now, on the threshold of a fuller life, primed to battle with the unknown world beyond these academic doors — eager, expectant, anxious, to justify the solicitous training of my formative years by parent and preceptor. There are many, I dare say, in this audience who can go back with me down memory’s aisles to the time when we 7 f % A. J. OSOINACH. sat as students in this room. Those days marked an epoch in our lives —the impress they made shall never be ef faced. The expansion of school facilities in Hancock county and the growth of your own city schools have been such as to merit the most fulsome praise. Believe me, I do not exaggerate when I say that I am overwhelmed with glad surprise to note the strides that have been made. Anew era for education has dawned. Teachers’ training schools, teachers’ associations, better libraries, more facilities for study and research, more advantages in higher educational work—all have had their effect on the times, and the opportunity offered you today is greater than ever before. The world is roseate-tinted to you in the flush of your vigorous young man hood and womanhood. You will go forth next year to college, or out into the world of business, full of energy and enthusiasm; and, mark my words, the benefit cf these early years of training and of the lessons you have learned, the impressions you have gained, the moral and intellectual code that has been inculcated in you, will be brought I home to you many times during the strife and turmoil of life. The great system of retributive justice devised by an all-wise Providence will inevitably record every flash, every impulse, which | you have experienced for good or evil, I and will make or mar the outcome of ; every crisis of your life. That is why we select our best and brainiest men and women for teachers —that the youth of the land may be taught purposeful ideals, and reared with the power to realize them. Emerson says that this life is a search after power—it is an element with which this world is so saturated —there is not a chink or crevice in which it is not lodged,—that no honest seeking goes unrewarded. Events and possessions should be prized as the ore in which fine minerals are found, and man can afford to let events and possessions and breath of body go, if he can add them to himself in the shape of power. What the great moral crises of your life cost in vitality is repaid in added force of character; what is sown in dross is reaped in pure gold. All successful men have agreed in one thing:—they were causationists; they believed that things went, not by luck, but by law; that there was not a weak or cracked link in the chain that binds the first to the last of things, A belief in casualty, or a strict connection I between every pulse-beat and the prin ciple of being, and, in consequence, a belief in compensation, or that nothing is gotten for nothing, characterizes every valuable mind and must control every effort of an industrious one. The most valiant men are the best believers in the tension of laws. “All the great captains,” said Bona parte, “Jjave accomplished vast achieve ments by conforming to the rules of the art; by adjusting efforts to obstacles.” To adjust our efforts to obstacles, to develop talent, to engender tact, to fos ter aggressiveness; these are the pri mal purposes of systematic education, j Talent receives compliments; tact, fees; | talent convinces, tact converts; talent | commands, tact is obeyed; talent is honored with approbation, tact is blessed by preferment; talent has the ear of the people, tact the heart. Tact is as the life of the senses; it is a han dle for all practical purposes of life. To do this is to wield your influence i for the best, to utilize every ounce of j reserve force in the most advantageous i manner, and that, after all, is the chief desideratum of labor. The human mentality may be divided into two sorts, the analytic and the syn thetic. Here you have gained the power of analysis; each day something has been added to your fund of know lege or your force of character. You have dissected the course of common school education, and now that you have come to the day of grad nation,’you can appreciate what I mean by the syn thetic. Vou can now get a compreben- f sive yiew on all that you have learaed. f; You can put together the precious frag ments which have come to you day by day, patiently, and with consummate toil, and grasp the fuller meaning of the subjects covered in their entirety. You can begin to see the cause and ef fect produced by the myriad impres sions which have been sketched on your susceptible young minds. You can ap preciate the sendees of these patient men and women, who have guided you through the mazes of these elementary truths, and who have braced your tottering steps until you have be come able to walk, so to speak, in the path of the student. I must confess that to me the syn thetic has always appealed. To grasp a subject in its entirety, to realize the splendid unity in a million disjoined fragments, to know the purposefulness of things which in themselves seem in significant, yet which, taken in their relation to other things, are fraught with meaning, seems to me the happiest attribute of mental poise. There can be no greater object in life than striving to gain dimly, yet ever more clearly, some conception of this vast scheme of things entire analyzing, as it were, the beat of the arteries, the palpitations of the heart, the action and reaction of every faculty to get the synthetic whole; to dissect fragmentary and individual causes to adequately understand, as best our finite minds may, the wonderful cosmos. Not with the sublime, but im potent, beauty of Omar’s imagery, who, in mute appeal, exclaims: Ah, love! could you and I with Him conspire To grasp this sorry scheme of things entire; Would not we shatter it to bits, and then Remould it nearer to the heart’s desire ? Your every lesson learned, and your every future experience, which is to the world of fact what a text book is to the world of theory, will broaden and de velop your understanding, and, because of the guiding power of this early edu cation, you will insensibly grow into a deep sympathy with the infinite by which you are surrounded. That is latter-day religion—-though thousands of years old. It is useless to cry out Would but some winged angel, ere too late, Arrest the yet unfolded scroll of fate. And make the stern recorder otherwise Enregister, or quite obliterate! We are coming to know that we could not remould the world to any better ad vantage. The fault lies not with the world, but with us, if there be fault. Plato, in his Republic, argues that it is the aim of individval man, as of the State, to be wise, brave, and temperate. The State, he says, is composed of three orders, the guardians, the auxiliaries, and the producers. Wisdom should be the special virtue of the guardians, courage of the auxiliaries, and temper ance of all. These three virtues belong also to the individual man—wisdom to his rational part; courage to his spir itual, and temperance to his appetitive; while in the State, as in man, it is in justice that disturbs their harmony. Since a time when the mind of man runneth not to the contrary, human na ture in its highest type has been striv ing to attain that state of perfection characterized of man by Socrates in his Critias, of which we have only the be ginning; by Sir Thomas Moore, in his Utopia; by Sir Francis Bacon, tvno, in his moon-tinctured dreams, drew aside the curtain of human frailty, and, in his New Atlantis, gave us a glimpse of the happiness which shall crown the at tainment of wisdom, bravery, and tem perance; by Campanella and Harring ton, and all the master minds which I have gazed into the future so yearn ingly, trying to discern promise from the mists of mental and spiritual evolu tion that man shall at last grasp the full fruition of his earthly heritage. The age-old struggle for uplift is gaining in force. The master minds of each age are the dynamics, which rein force its powerful potentialities in the onslaught on the citadels of ignorance and sin. The work of scientists and theologians is coming more and more to merge with each passing year, in search of the great truths which shall make man master of himself as he is already master of the earth and the ele ments." It is a bit queer that mastery in the purely material domain should have preceded mastery in the realms of soul. However, a subtle introspection is characteristic of the age, and I be lieve that, in the future, the great dis coveries will be, not in electricity or chemistry, or aerial navigation, but in the soul of man. The philosopher, the theologian, and the scientist of the fu ture, must bend their energies to the study of man’s inner consciousness; that'is the last of the mysteries we are given to solve. Because the character of man ap peared in the slate unchanged, but in a larger form, Plato represented Socrates as studying the ideal man himself through an ideal commonwealth. Cri tias undertakes to tell him how such a commonwealth would work if put in motion. For he has received tradition of events which occurred nine thousand years before. At that early time, the Athenians were young, virile, and un corrupted by wealth or power. They repelled with great slaughter an attack from the wealthy Atlantids, people from an isle of monstrous proportions in some mythical western ocean, showing the superiority of those traits of the mind which they possessed. It seems to me that there is a lesson in that story for us: First, the Atlantids, drunk with lust and power, hastened their own downfall; second, we are shown that the idea of a great western empire is almost as old as time itself. I have hinte’d at a parallel between the ancient Athenian republic and our own. Both were born of simple, rugged men, whose concept of life and duty, untinctured by the temptations of wealth and civilization and power, made their governments invincible. A too care fully nurtured civilization has its dan gers. In the light of later years, we know that Athens crumbled to decay, because her progeny eventually proved unworthy of the ideals of their fathers. Is America destined to follow in the footsteps of the countless republics of history, when a degenerate people shall clutch, first at the benevolent embrace of a dictator, then a despot? There are some who answer yes. While we disagree with these pessim ists, it must be admitted that America faces problems which its best and bravest citizenship must rise to meet. The problems of the future are industrial and economic. The great world battle j must be between capital and labor. It iis manifest that, under a continuance |of the present systems, it is only a I question of thne ere a readjustment of classes and customs will be demanded. Militant politicians are already begin ning to make capital of the growing in dustrial unrest. Agitation of high food prices, the prosecution of the illegiti mate trusts—these and other signs are j harbingers of sweeping changes to come. The recent announcement of Nelson W. Aldrich,'’of Rhode Island, that he would not be a candidate for re-election bears the ear-marks of a retreat. It is a tacit admission by the predatory in terests that the yoice of the people is heard. The conspicuous favoritism of the tariff; the great custom house robber ies; the undeniable fact that the rich man holds the balance of power; that the trusts are putting on the screws as last as they dare; that they are buying in tbe world’s risible food supply each year at medium and low prices, then placing it in cold storage plants and warehouses for a time, and reselling it to the people at prices never before equalled; that, with each passing year, a greater percentage of the surplus wealth of the country is being concen trated in the hands of a few men who constitute a virtual moneyed oligarchy— these truisms are bringing the American people to realize that they are literally selling their birthright for a mess of pottage. Upton Sinclair, h Socialist, deals with these two extremes of Americanism in two noteworthy books—The Jungle and The Metropolis. In the one he depicts the down-trodden underworld, its vitals poisoned by the emblazoned rottenness of the system, when existence i* a strug - gle between brute man and brute man; in the other we see a class lolling in idleness and luxury, whose srreed and systematic plunder breed the rabble of the Jungle, which is the Parisian mob of America, which, in time, must pre cipitate a reign of terror and a riot of bloodshed, unless curbed by the wis dom, the foresight and the courage of the masses of the American people. The cure for our social and political ills, let us say, lies in no “ism” save patriot ism; in no fad or cult save sane politics. It lies with you and me, my young friends, as men and women, who may be called on in this generation to mould anew the destinies of the greatest na tion on earth, to say whether the com ing of a changed "social and political order, based on equity and justice, shall be ushered in sanely [and temperately by timely legislation, cogent thought, decisive, yet moderate, measure; or whether it shall be blazoned by the blare of revolutionary trumpet and the tread of the rabble’s lustful foot.
