Picayune Says Line Will Come to the Missis sippi Gulf Coast, a Short Distance to the West of Bay St. Louis Public Will Know Definitely the Plans of the Frisco. That the Frisco system of railroads is coming to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, on its way from the Middle West into New Orleans, the gateway to the Pa nama canal, there appears to be no doubt; in fact, that much has already been officially given out. But just at or near what point on the Coast the line will strike the Louisville and Nash ville tracks is not as yet given out. Bay St. Louis, or, better still, from a logical point of view, Clermont City or Lake Shore, it would appear, will in time prove the Frisco’s objective point. In the event that either of the latter men tioned places secure the location of this converging point, Bay St. Lonis will, to an appreciably extent, benefit thereby. The Echo, a champion for Bay St. Louis and Hancock county, first, last and all the time, anticipates the early definite announcement from the Frisco officials. The following, from the New Orleans Picayune, dated Wednesday morning, is of local interest and will be perused eagerly by every reader who is concern ed in the future welfare of this locality: “That the Frisco is making extensive preparations for the opening of its line from New Orleans to the Middle Wes tern sections is evident from the exten sive work that is now going on in Mis sissippi, and, from the present outlook, things will be in excellent shape in a few months for the installation of the new service. “B.F.Y’oakum, chairman of the execu tive committee, with President B. L, Winchell and several of the other pro minent officials, only recently made a trip of inspection down the New Or leans, Mobile and Chicago, the road reaching from Tennessee to points in Mississippi and Alabama, purchased from the Lerg interests, and as a result of that inspection plans were laid for extensive track building, which plans are now being carried out. “According to information received yesterday the Frisco has been survey ing its right of way from Beaumont, Miss., to a point on the Gulf Coast, a short distance to the west of Bay St. Louis. “As soon as all the surveys are made the tracks will be built over the course, and connection will be made with the Louisville and Nashville forty-five miles from New Orleans. The contract with the Louisvillo and Nashville, by which the Frisco uses that company’s tracks into the junction of the New Orleans Terminal Company’s tracks just at the city limits, has already been signed,and the announcement has been made that the Frisco will bring its Northern trains into the New Orleans Terminal Station instead of the Louisville and Nashville depot, at the head of Canal street. “While no definite information was obtainable at the Frisco or Louisville & Nashville offices in this city yesterday, it was nevertheless intimated that Mr. Yoakum and other Frisco officials,would be in the city shortly after New Year to make all final arrangements as to train schedules oyer the Louisville & Nash ville tracks from the Frisco Junction to this city.” TWO NEW TRAINS ON LOUISVILLE AND NASHVILLE LINE To Run Through Bay St. Louis Nos. 7 and 8 To Be Operated Through to New Orleans. The Mobile Daily Register, an appa rent authority for L. & N. railroad news, contains the following news of local in terest in its issue of Sunday, viz: Louis ville & Nashville fast trains Nos. 7 and 8 are to be operated regularly between New Orleans and Cincinnati,after the Ist of January, according to rumors current in local railroad circles. Nos, 7 and 8 now operate only as far south as Montgomery, and passengers bound south for New Orleans and Mo bile must take the local train, No. 5. The increasing volume of winter travel, it is stated, makes it necessary to in crease facilities, and a third fast through train will be added to the present two. The two Cincinnati “flyers” now in operation are comprised of No. 1 and 3, southbovnd, and Nos. 2 and 4, north bound. Official announcement regarding the change has not yet been received at the Louisville and Nashville offices. Construction Work on Pascagoula Traction Lise Will Start May Ist. PASCAGOULA.

LOUIS Elect Officers For Next Year and Show a Healthful and Steady Growth, With an Outlook for the Future That Means Much For the Unity and Promotion of the Fraternity of Man. Organized fraternalism is a good sign for any community, and Bay St. Louis in this respect is to the fore. It shows a better social condition and tends to promote a closer feeling of unity among mankind as nothing else will. Many of the local fraternal organizations have strong life insurance features, respect ively for both sexes, and that our men and women are providing for future emergencies and exigencies shows a care and forethought that is indicative of their concern for husbanding and add ing to their resources for the protection and care of their loved ones after they are gone. Every organization is a live one. The past few weeks have witnessed the elec tion of officers in the different organiza tions, to serve for the ensuing year. As a rule the officers represent the flower of the order and the array of names pre sented below well shows that our repre sentative people are actively allied with organized fraternalism and for all that this unity of mankind stands for.

Year after year the editor writes his epistle on Christmas, and no two must be alike! Then, dear reader, you can, to some extent, consider the “task.” Though the subject is old, its inspirations are ever new. Once more on the eve of Christmas-tide many thoughts flood the mind, and in each mind what a different trend! Christmas, it would seem, is interpreted differently by the individual. In the child the more mention conjures up thoughts and sights of ail that is dear to the earlier fancy—visions of the Christmas tree, with its myriad of lighted tapers, burden of toys and tinseled ornaments that scintillate in the glow of the light from either the reflex of multi-colored wax candles or the miniature elec tric bulbs. Then, later, after the order of Shakespeare’s “Seven Ages”, the grown ups assemble in their respective places of worship and pay homage with all humility and reverence, and, instead of incense and precious ointments and casket* of gems deposited by the wise men and kings of old, offer at the foot of the great white throne better still their hearts filled with love and veneration that know no like; for unto them that day anew King was born. And in return receive the blessing of that peace that passeth all understanding. Christian charity and the other virtues are all good to be practiced, par ticularly at this season, but the exercise of corporal charity is especially accept able at the Christmas-tide. “It is more blessed to give than to receive,” says the Scripture, and the quotation has lost none of its merit with the passing of time. We, who are rich in the joys and life bounties to anticipate Christmas, should not forget that possibly the little boy or little girl next door might be a victim of the tragedy of empty stocking on Christmas morning. We might save the youthful heart from the pangs of disappointment, and the recol lection of the smile of the wee wan face is enough pleasure, ample recompense for a little thought and consideration to last at least one whole day, and that day Christmas. In its popular acceptance, Christmas is the children’s season, and none accentuated this more in his delightful Christmas stories than Dickens, the favorite novelist, and possibly the greatest of them all. And no one, however least thoughtful, will forget the needy, the sick, the invalid with the pallid cheek, and, like so many flowers, fragrant and full of color, each kindness and every tenderness will exhale a lasting perfume. It is far better and more lasting to win the smile from the grateful lips and hearts than the plaudits of the mocking, hollow world, wherein our own selfish beings dwell. Selfishness poisons the spirit. What kind of a Christmas will be yours? That of the sordid, selfish sort, or that of the heart imbued with the spirit of the quotation, “It is more blessed to give than to receive!” Either one is yours, and only for the choosing. But why ask? We know. Then, gentle reader, The Echo wishes that true Merry Christmas which is in store for you, and that only for the mere asking! “DIPPIES” . . . 6Y "DAD” . . . The stern judge whom the fa nouts case was being tried bad entered the courtroom, assumed his exalted seat in that great tribunal of justice, ad justed his erlasaes upon his Romanesque proboscis aad proceeded to pry open the lid of procedure. His whole brow was distorted by a fierce frown of dis pleasure because of the fact that only that day did he learn that the seventy five dollar meerschaum which the retir ing medico had presented him as a “Donation Inter-Vivos”, had been found to be contained of three separate and distinct ingredients, namely: Chalk, Bunk and Fake. For that reason, par ticularly when the prisoner pleaded for clemency, he was scornfully rebuked, and, when asked if he had anything to say before sentence was passed, he begged leave to ask one simple ques tion—“ The Court grants the prisoner’s requests,” sternly breathed Justice. — “Well,” said the poor victim of Fate and Circumstances: — “If the Dairy-maid got sick, would the Condensed-Milk ?” (Back to the steel checker board!) If a jeweler wanted $7.98 for a Garnet Carbuncle, what would he ask for a Boil? (Quick, mama, the towel!) The other day a little boy with a per nicious twinkle in his other eye dashed into the butcher shop as though he was finishing first in a Bayou Talla mara thon —he had apparently lost his breath at some wayside inn. The kind-hearted butcher rushed up to him with all the solicitation of a stepmother: “Yes, my boy, what’s the matter ?” “M—mis—mister, my—my maw says” stuttered the boy. “Yes, my boy, your ma says”— “My maw says,“ continued the boy, “my maw says”; “If you couldn’t cut the steak, would the Pork-Chop it?” (Sic ’im, Tige, he got the scraps!) “Say, you with the tin foil all wrapped around you!” yelled the Corned-beef to the Fancy Bologna sausage under the grocer’s counter. “Say, listen, if the Oleomargarine lost its rank, would it make the Butter-nuts?” (Aw! git back in yer tub, horse!) If a turkey was sixteen, and be knew it, would Dan Carver? (Yes ma’m, it’s a bargain!) “Odds on favorite. Bill” “Wat’s an 'Odds-on-favorite’, Joe ?” “The Coast Train: 4 to 5 when she gets here!” (Fare, please!) S | “Say, Charlie, if you went up the I river in a pirogue, what would Four Dollar Bayou ?” (That’s right; it’s your turn!) New Year falls on Monday, Good time to start off with your New Year I resolutions, DEATH or m SECRETARY DETER.

LOUIS CASE TO FEDERAL COURT Attorney General Hudson Has Gone to Washington —Louisville and Nashville Company Fighting Every Inch of Ground and Does Not Want to Stop Trains at Front Street Crossing. Attorney General Hudson has g'one to Washington to personally look after the interests of the State in the matter of the appeal of the Louisville & Nash ville Railroad Company from the order, of the Mississippi Railroad Commission commanding the road to have its trains stop at the Front street crossing in Bay St. Louie. An appeal vras taken from the order of the commission to the State supreme court, and that tribunal upheld the authority of the commission to make the order and the reasonableness of the same. The Louisville & Nashville, always a hard and resourceful fighter, took an other tack and got the matter into the United States court on the ground that the stoppage was an interference with the proper transit of the United States mails and that the Mississippi commis sion generally had no jurisdiction to stop mail trains on interstate trips The Federal court sustained the conten tion of the railroad, and from this ad verse decision to the State of Missis sippi the State has appealed to the Su preme Court at Washington. This is the matter that Attorney General Hudson has gone to look after and of course will give it his best at tention. REALTY TRAHSFEBS.

SEA COAST IS NOW BEING RECOGNI2EO Collier’s Weekly, Self-Styl ed the “National Weekly” Pays Tribute to the Mis sissippi Sea Coast Coun try —British Officer Does Likewise —What Is Said of Pass Applies to “the Bay.’ ’ Garrard Harris, writing in his “Mis sissippi News and Comment” column, has the following to say of the Mijaia •ippi Gulf Coast: The sea c ist of Mississippi is at last beginning to come into itu own and to be appreciated as a winter resort. Col lier’s Weekly recently had this com plimentary notice of Pass Christian: “A British officer writes to us wish ing to know how many of the Ameri cans who flock to Europe in search of climate and scenery have ever heard of a little place called Pass Christian. This officer has traveled in most parts of the world, and if he were asked what was the bestall-year-around climate he knew, he would answer unhesitatingly in favor ®f this little place on the gulf. Residents of New Orleans go there for the summer, and a few Englishmen visit it occasionally to shoot duck, snipe and deer. The land speculator has not yet become busy, and wo understand that sea frontage is still obtainable.” What is said of the Pass is equally true of Bay St. Louis, Mississippi City, Biloxi, Moss Point, Pascagoula, Gulf port and all the territory in between. What is needed is for the whole coast country to get together, get up some funds and have some first-class adver tising agency place the advertising in such periodicals and publications as will reach the leisure class who deairo to escape the rigors of a northern win ter. Aiken was made by printer’s ink, and with not one-tenth the natural ad vantages of any point on the Missis sippi Coast. A concerted effort will turn the tourist tide to the Coast of Mississippi, and the result will be prof itable in more ways than one. The idea of going to Italy for a climate, when we have a better one at home, even if we do have to bo jolted into a conscious ness of it by a globe-trotting English - man who knows what he is talking about!
