BIG 4TH OF JULY CELEBRATION TOR Bay St. Louis on Monday Next —Celebration Under Auspices of Local Wood men of the World —Ad- dresses by Prominent Cit zens and -Candidates to be a Feature of the Day. Bay St. Louis will do itself proud on the Fourth of July, and much of the credit for the festivities of the day will be due to the zealous efforts of Cedar Grove Camp No. 507, Woodmen of the World, of this city, who will give a grand picnic at the College Campus on Monday next, for the- benefit of the Camp’s chair fund. In addition to other features of the day’s programme arranged for the en tertainment of the public, there will be two games of base ball, the first between Bay St. Louis and New Orleans teams and the second game between the Ed wardsvilles and Jean Larroux. The following candidates have ac cepted invitations to be present and ad dress the people on the political issues of the day: Hon. Theo. G. Bilbo, Hon. B. P. Harrison, Hon. Frank H. Lewis and Hon. John R. Tally. A half holiday will be declared by the merchants of the city, and all places will be closed at 11 o’clock a. ra. The day’s festivities will start at 10 o’clock with a grand parade from the Woodmen’s Hall through the principal streets of the city to the picnic grounds. The city council, in automobiles, will lead the procession, followed by the Ladies’ Circle, W. O. W., in carriages. The speakers for the occasion will come next, in automobiles; members of the press, board of health, and county offi cials will ride in carriages, as will mem bers of the local camp of Woodmen, and visiting friends, Mr. Dave Glover will be the grand marshal of the parade. The start will be made from Wood men’s Hall, and will, no doubt, prove a highly interesting feature of the day’s programme. Mr. J. S. Randolph, of Curley Pine Camp, of Gulfport, will deliver an ad dress on the “Good of the Grder”, and, as he is an adept in Woodcraft, his sub ject promises to be of more than usual interest to those interested in the teach ings of this organization. A feature of this celebration will be the receiving of the result of the Jef fries-Johnson prize fight, a special wire being connected on the grounds, and full returns will be received. It is understood that a large delega tion from Gulfport will attend, and from what has been gleaned in conversation with several members of the local lodge it would appear that almost the entire membership of Curley Pine Camp will come over to the Bay on that day. There will bo plenty of refreshments on the grounds, and a good time is promised all who attend. The affair will wind up with a grand ball at night, under the auspices of Pine Grove Circle No. 107, and as this will be the first time the Circle of Bay St. Louis appears in connection with a public function, they will make an effort to leave an impression, and will also see that all who attend enjoy themselves. A quiet, but pretty home wedding took place on Thursday night at the home of the bride’s mother, when Miss Letitia McGinty and Mr. John Toulme, son of Mayor R. W. Toulme, were joined in wedlock by Rev. Father J, M. Pren dergast, pastor of the Church of Our Lady of the Gulf. Only the immediate members of the family were present. Mr. Toulme is connected with his father’s business and will make this city his future home. The Echo extends best wishes. On Wednesday night, at Lew Rose’s Bay Pictoriura, for the first time in Bay St. Louis, a celebrated “Imp” film was projected on the motion picture screen, and Manager Snyder felt highly grati fied at the success attained in securing so fine a feature.

Resume of the .Beautiful and Interesting Graduating Exercises and Entertain ing Accompanying Ty rolean Queen, Operetta, Charmingly Rendered by Bright Pupils. (Continued from last week’s report.) The commencement exercises of Saint Joseph’s Academy took place Wednes day night of last week and proved to be the crowning glory of this well-known institution. The graduates, five charming mai dens, namely Misses Marguerite Keat ing, M. Lloyd, M. Spotorno, E. Bran dao, L. Ames, bade farewell to their dear Alma Mater. Miss Mercedes Spotorno gave the ap preciative audience a salutatory—the rhythm of English welcome. The valedictory, Foot-Prints in the Corridors of Time, by Miss L. Ames, showed her depth of thought and was delivered with that grace which belongs to the sweet girl graduate. The Voyage of Life, an allegory, was the acme of the night. Miss E. Brandao personated but too well fair youth, launched on the peril ous sea of life. Science, Miss M. Spotorno, scroll in hand, ever pointed to the rocks and shoals which threatened her fragile bark of clay. Faith, Miss M. Keating, cross in hand, stood at the holm. Hope, Miss M. Lloyd, with the anchor as her symbol, filled her soul with de sires of heaven. Charity, Miss V, Keller, with loving heart, kept Youth’s unsteady gaze on the great beyond. Humility, Miss E. Sporl, proved to youtb that she had naught but what the Almighty deigned to give. Purity, Miss O. Lamothe, warned her against those who would rob her of her most precious gem. Zeal, Miss N. Sutton, with untiring efforts, hushed the siren voices which were striving to blight her young life. Pride, Miss L. Ames, left naught un done to induce her to ascend the heights of glory and ronown. Sloth, Miss E. Berthelot, soothed Youth’s weary brain, while she enticed her to lonely bowers. Pleasure, Miss E. Godard, bedecked with every charm, did not in vain be guile unwary Youth, for gayly did she step in Pleasure’s boat, and would have gone beneath the billowy waves, had not the Virtues rescued the sinking bark and steered it safely into port. Miss Marie Lloyd, one of the most charming young graduates, by her natural genius and scholarly perform ance of Bonnie Boon and Bonnie Dundee, captivated all lovers of classi cal music, and she was enthusiastically applauded. She was, also, awarded a handsome gold pin for music. Tyrolean Queen. Miss L. Dreschaux, the Tyrolean Queen, captivated the audience from beginning to end. The Tyroleans, H. Sporl, F, Champ lain, N. Lapleau, G. Burk, R. Cora donna, L. Sartre, Z. Bonnond, A. Betz, J. Spotorno, L. Sporl, C. Chauvet, I. Tomasich, B. Gondron, M. Donlin, and Mamie Donlin, entered heartily into their merry songs and games. Miss G. Sartre, the Gypsy Queen, was truly winsome whilst alluring the innocent maiden from her mountain home. The Gypsies, L, Burk, G. Rice, M. Toledano, J. Coradonna, J. Pierri, 11. Strong, N. Nicaise, J. Mauffray, A. Songy, L. Rodolph, A. Quigly, N. Labrindirs and L. Beale, with the music of their tambourines and hearty laugh, showed how happy they could be in this world of woes. Miss L. Ladnier, the Fairy Queen, and her beautiful subjects, C. Osoinach, M. Chauvet, A. Rexach, E. Mauffray, M. Hall, L. McGinn, W. Horter, C. Toulme, L. Mallard, O. Chauvet, R, Betz, V. Ducatel, M. Perre, I. Mauff ray, M. Toulme, E. Perre, S. Sch ill, F. Hos mer and G. Guerra, kindly guided the weary Tyrolean Queen’s footsteps back to her rustic home. Miss V. Ducatel, with her usual grace and charming personality, distinguished herself in the rendition of her lovely solo. igpi -j _ i * For July. (Copyright 1910 by C. H. Rieth. When the Ballinger trial is ended, And the jury has said what it thinks; When the case has been made and de fended With the wonted political winks— We shall smile—and gads! we shall need to That feel it as well had Deen dropped And the Guggenheim crowd will pro ceed to Resume where it was when it stopped. The signs shall come down in the tim ber, And the patents shall tie up the coal. The law will get flabby and limber, And the trusts will do well on the whole. It always turns out in that manner, Although we may blush to confess it, And we do not regard it a banner Achievement exactly to guess it. July is a tribute to Caesar. One day with some other insurgents he talked by the pillar of Pompey on things of po litical urgence. He was just on the point of explaining the key to some government riddle, when a party of regulars jumped him and cut him into in the middle. There was Dccius Brutus, the speaker, and Cassius, boss of the Senate, to gether with others insistent upon some political tenet. “The party forever!” they shouted, and what w r ith that terrible slasher Ser vilius Casca, great Caesar as well had been run through a hasher. At any rate, Antony found him cut up into fodder for fishes, and begged this request of the Romans, who granted the least of his washes. And thus it has happened and shall be so long as the Tiber runs by the pillar of Pompey that Caesar shall live in the name of July. The Fourth shall return to discover Us waiting in battle array, And what with one thing and another Regretting we won, any way The cannon shall boom, and the scram ble For things on the medicine shelves Shall warn inexperienced countries Aspiring to freedem themselves. The dynamite cap and the rocket shall remind us of tyranny thwarted, and the valiant forefather shall turn in his coffin to see what he started. The eagle shall mount on his pinions and circle the North and the South, and the rapid-tire orator stand on the platform and shoot off his mouth. This latter, however, is harmless in a strict patho logical way, but remains notwithstand ing an evil we must in due season allay. Alas, how deficient is nature that might lay this pest on the shelf with ruling that shooting his mouth off he gave the lockjaw to himself. This tetanus, wa are quite certain, has good and defensible uses, and all of its manifestations thus far have been only abuses. The idea, as we regard it, is not that it should be the cause of any more serious matter than locking the orator’s jaws. We know that we never hear of it ex cept on the Fourth of July, and when ever some innocent gets it, we are for ever wondering why. Well, this is the fact of the matter, and, by Jove, we are willing to bet it turns out in the long run that no one but a lot of old wind-jam mers get it. However, be chat as it may be, And get whom the tetanus will, The jubilant youth of the nation Will resume with its shooting to kill The safe and the sane celebration Will suit us w'ho are not so skittish, But the youngsters have got to do some - To show what we did to the British, There never was anything safe in the way the forefathers attacked them, and as for the saner attainments, the old fellows seem to have lacked them. They simply cast fear to the bowwows and waded into the affray, and a boy does not think himself worthy if ho can’t shoot himself, anyway. At any rate, Jeffries and Johnson will v! like a couple of poodles and obsei independence with beating the hair oL heir mutual noodles. They’ll alternate making the other leviathan howl for his mother, and if the country at random is lucky, they’ll manage to kill one another. It’s only a plan to make money, de serving the strictest of strictures for what they will have in a race war divid ing what’s made on the pictu res. We’ve been pretty mad in this country for dol lars, and power, and places, but this is the first time we’ve trafficked upon the abyss between the races. The fat occupant of the White House Will lie on his back in the grass Beneath the green Beverly maples Observing the aeroplanes pass. The chauffeurs will keep right on chauf fing. With seeing it’s no one but Bill, And theyTl'sigh just to think what had happened, Had they flown over Sagamore Hill. But not every man can be Caesar, as someone has stated, alas! and in the due course of the matter somebody must lie on the grass. It’s hard on a strenu ous nation, afflicting us all in a way, but we’ll look on the brighter side of it, and conclude it is good for the hay. However, Time flies is a proverb. And one day, his foot on his gong, And his enjine back-peddaiing, August Will come aeropiamng along. FROM THE PASCAGOULA DEMOCRAT-STAR. FRANK H. LEWIS’ RECORD. The man who aspires to so responsi ble a political position as representative in the Lower House of the great Ameri can Congress should have a record that will bear investigation and scrutiny, and it should be a record of deeds worthy and of a high order. Frank Lewis, the son of one of the most prominent and successful public men of Jackson county, was elected, against strong odds, to the office of sheriff of Jackson county, into which office he was inducted just as he rounded his twenty-first year, thus entering manhood as the chief executive officer of his county. Those were days that tried men’s souls, but the boy was equal to the great emergency, and, with un flinching moral and physical courage and an integrity that makes no compro mise, no county in the State had a bet ter sheriff. When the law was so amended as to prohibit a sheriff from succeeding him self, Frank Lewis was the logical man for clerk of the courts, theretofore filled with such splendid ability by Hon. W. M. Denny, who was elected to Con gress. Into this office, already so tho roughly well systematized by a very prince of clerks, Frank H. Lewis was inducted as its head, which office became one of the best regulated and managed in the State, the office of the tw T o courts being combined. When he saw that the population justified it, he, of his own motion, and against his interests, promptly took action to establish the two offices as separate under the law, and he was elected chancery clerk. But it was not as officer, but as pub lic-spirited citizen that he has most dis tinguished himself, and of which his people delight to speak and for which to do him honor. We might be content to say that the subject of this sketch, as the active manifestation of a pure, sim ple, lofty patriotism, has been for many years the recognized leader, if not origi nator of every public movement, agita tion and enterprise in this section of the State for political, social, civic and busi ness uplift and betterment. As president and officer of the Pasca goula Commercial Club he made that organization, far more than any other man, notable for its intelligent and far reaching activities, and grappled with the most difficult problems with a mas ter hand that never failed.

MAUFFRAY, | y “The Store of Honest Values.” || P| Front Street, - Bay St. Louis, Miss. eering Department of the Government, his volumes of data and detail have per haps never been surpassed, and received the especial praise and personal credit in the halls of Congress, where his in fluence and prestige became second only to that of our able Representative, E. J. Bowers, in matters to which he set his hand. In education and morals the same leading spirit has ever been to the fore front, and as a trustee of the public schools of the city of Pascagoula he has found time to confer upon the rising generation the most valuable service in enabling them to possess those riches that thieves may not break through and steal; and in all public activities for promoting good morals and temperance and civic virtue and integrity all men have turned to Frank H. Lewis for a brave and dauntless champion, and have never been disappointed. But, with all this, of which the half has not been told, Frank Lewis, the farmer, is the man most natural, conge nial and happy if not valuable to his country and fellow-beings. With all his activities he has always been a far mer and loves farming and the farmer. He has spent thousands of dollars in ex perimentation in agriculture and horti culture, not only because he dearly loves it, but to demonstrate the adaptability of his native soil for the cqjture of the most valuable fruits, vegetable and farm products, and in this lino of work future generations will doubtless reap their richest reward and the fruits of the active life of a patriotic, courageous and industrious son. After following these experiments for a number of years, and finding others joining him in the good work, he gath ered up samples of the result, wont to the Jackson Fair, and, year after year, carried off the most valued and coveted prizes, and returned, the happiest man in all the State, His long staple cotton of marvelous yield found no worthy competitor in this great cotton State. His office in this city is a veritable mu seum of stuffed and preserved animals, fish, birds and fruits and vegetables, all for the love, the pride in, and better ment of, the land of his birth . It is this patriot, this man of all cour age, ability and amazing patriotic en ergy and perseverance that must repre - sent this (Sixth) district in Congress for a wider field and freer hand to serve and bless humanity.
