You know, the best of friends often have to part. For twenty-eight months I have greatly enjoyed your regular, welcome, and free visits to the Parsonage, all the inmates of which highly appreciate the compliment. Your pure, clear-cut democracy, your fair and impartial reports of all that affects the public weal—political, indus trial, educational, social, and munici pal—are truly grateful to all whose motto is, “Pro bono publico”. And thou, Bay St. Louis! “beautiful for situation,” embraced within the loving arms of umbrageous sylva and health-promoting bay, fanned by saline, balmy breezes —generous gifts of God— I must bid you an affectionate and re luctant farewell! Oh! may the unhallowed feet of Sab bath breakers cease to desecrate thy sacred soil! When I came to you, I found my darlings happily within the commodious home of the Hon. E. J. Bowers, who generously gave it to them to occupy while the Parsonage was un dergoing repairs. Grateful memories of my stay there will ever linger with me, prominent among which was asso ciation with the intelligent, energetic, quick-motioned, accommodating Hilary Posey. How we used to hie to the cu linary department, ere the feathered choristers began to warble forth their matinee, while. all the other inmates of the mansion were hugged in the sooth ing arms of “balmy sleep, nature’s sweet restorer,” and there quaff our nectarian coffee, and talk—politics?— no, not much; for we did not wholly agree in that. But we agreed to dis agree; just like all true friends and brethren will do, and think none the less ot one another for honest differ ences of opinion. We heartily com mend the wisdom of the Hon. Richard Mendes in procuring the services of so capable an assistant in the P. O. de partment as Hilary, who, doubtless, would make good in any business be might choose. And, now, let this old octogenarian , venture a parting word to the municipal officers: —Water your streets, especially the main streets of your town. Enforce the law that will keep stock from run ning at large, and keep strict surveil lance over the sanitary condition ol all the city homes. You will thereby make your beautiful town still more attractive as a health and pleasure resort and draw to it the best class of society, whose influence will prove potential for the highest good of the communP “So mote it be!” -/• Farewell! Good-’ , _ Louis! ~,,-uye! dear Bay St. t 4 H. B. COTTRELL. THE ECHO’S Job Printing Department | b Complete end Up-to-DeU POWER EQUIPPED TWENTY-FIRST Year.
