Said to Have Lost Control of Car She Was Driving- 1 Other Car Owned by Geo. Toca and Was In Charge of His Son Rene, When the Smash-up Occurred on Tuesday Morning in Union Near Hancock Streets. 1 Asa result of an automobile collision Tuesday morning, Mrs. Claud Monti sustained a broken collar bone and oth er painful injuries. It appears Mrs. Monti was driving her car along Union street, near the corner of Hancock street, going towards -the beach front, as we understand it she lost control of her due to an exces sive nervous condition and collided with the automobile belonging to Geo. Toca, driven at the time by his son Rene. Although young Toca was quick to take in the situation and promptly threw on the emergency brake of his car, the compact was such as to smash the fronts of both cars and causing Mrs. Monti to be thrown against the wind shield as well as over the steering wheel, with results as aforestated. With her on the front seat was her neice, Marie Quintini, who has one knee *y injured besides receiving other in juries. Toca’s injuries were slight, to say nothing of the severe shock, receiving a slight cut on one side of his face, above the ear. Dr. Horton was summonded and took Mrs. Monti in charge. She was taken to her home in automobile while another car took Toca to his. From late reports it was learned that while Mrs. Monti was quite ill, she was doing as well as could be expected. It was most singular that both autos in the smash-up were of the same man ufacture and both new. The extent of the damage in dollars at this report could not be ascertained, however, it is certain the w r eck was costly, , BIGGEST PLANTATION INSTATEMISSISSIPPI Total Value of All the State Farms Is Over Two Million Dollars. Messrs. Stewart and Williams, ap praisers for the Penitentiary Board of Trustees, charged with fixing the valua tion of all lands, live stock and other farm paraphernalia, have completed their labors and have filed their report in the offices of the Board. The totals for the several farms are as follows: Rankin farm, comprising 3,216 acres of land at $25 per acre, $8,440; personal property, including live stock, $40,916; total, $131,305; Belmont farm, compris ing 2,005 acres at SSO per acre, $100,250; personal property, $30,000; total, $130,- 240; Oakley farm, oomprising 2,740 acres at $35 per acre, $95,000; personal property, $32,355; total, $128,255; Oakley Hospital, peosonal property only $2,y01; Parchman farm, comprising 17,- 790 acres, $1,412,010; personal property, $248,997; total, $1,672,908. Grand total valuation of all the farms, $2,058,346. The State began its present system of farming on its own lands less- than twenty years ago, paying an average of about sls per apre for lands. The Parchman farm was an unbroken wilder ness in Sunflower County, but today its 17,790 acres are valued at nearly one and a half million dollars, and no man who has ever visited it and examined it carefully will deny the correctness of these figures. The other farms in Rankin, Hinds and Holmes Counties were old and established plantations when purchased —worn by long cultivation. They haye all been wonderfully improved and to day are worth several times what the State paid for them. The l,7ooconvicts are humanely cared for and turn annually into the State treasury in the way of net profits about $300,000. Mr*. Bilk* a Dlpteam Victim at Biloxi. The “summer capital” of Mississippi has been placed under quarantine owing to the fact that Mrs. Theo G. Bilbo,wife of Governor Bilbo, has developed a case of diptheria, as, reported by attending physicians. Mrs.tßilbo was taken ill the latter part of last week and the case is one of mild form with no serious Je suits to occur. Governor Bilbo was called to Jackson several days ago on official business, and physicians keep in touch with him daily. Biloxi physi cians report only one other case Tn the city ol its kind, with the proper steps taken to premt its spread, j * ■■ Searsi Roebeck S Go. Watch newspapers. . I I IHllfc This is what Herman Rosenfield, advertising manager Of Sears, Roe buck & Cos., recently told the mem bers of the American Ad. Club at a convention. Wo have a bureau whose duty it is to read each week the country newspapers from all over the couptiy. There la not a paper of any consequence in our trade territory we do not get. The bureau looks over these papers and when ws find a town where the mer chants do not advertise in the local paper we immediately flood that ter ritory with our literature It always brings results far in excess of the same effort put forth in | territory where the local merchants use their local paper.” 4 . 4 Fl-AMU ORANGE ORCHARD IS SOLO FOR $20,000 Nebraska Investor Pays Rec ord Price to E. B. Dunten for Land Near Pascagoula. The five-acre pecan and orange orch ard of E. P, Dunten of Pascagoula, over in Jackson county, has been sold to Flora Bedison, of Omaha, Nebraska, for $20,000. This is the highest price ever paid in ’.hat section for an orchard of that size. The Dunten orchard is locally known TO ALL PATRIOTIC, PROGRESSIVE CITIZENS On August, the Board of Supervi ore of Hancock county will hold their regular monthly meeting at the court house in this city, and at two-thirty o’clock in the afternoon a request will be presented to them by parties from New Orleans for a right to construct a concrete toll bridge across the Bay of St. Louis, which will not cost the tax payers of Bay St. Louis and Hancock county one penny. It is useless to try and inform any well-thinking public or person of the in estimable value of this proposed bridge to our community. The Board of Supervisors desire doing the right thing and what the public demands. The only way the public’s Wishes can be known to the Board is by your individual expression and your presence when the matter is taken up for consideration. A public governmental body always acts according to public sentiment, if acquainted, and they (the citizens; have the power to so act. Let all progress ive citizens, heavy taxpayers and property owners be present at the courthouse at 2:30 o’clock P. M Monday and use every effort and little influence we might possess to help ourselves and the community to obtain an improvement that pre sents itself for the first time. We are all prone to say, “O, I can accomplish nothing, so I won’t go.” It takes you as a unit to make a representative gathering, and a body of citizens of any magnitude and size expressing their wishes in terms demanding constructive measures such as building this bridge, especially when it will cost nothing, will have very material and telling effect. On Monday we will see who is progressive. as the Valverde place, and is situated about two miles north of Pascagoula. It was purchased by Mr. Dunten about four years ago, and the orchard is just beginning to bear. It was not affect ed in the least by the storm. MONUMENT TO MEMORY OF J. IRA FORD. Friends of Deceased Attorney Erecting Handsome Monument in Cenrthonse Yard at Pascagoula. A handsome monument to the memo ry of J. I. Ford, one of the foremost at torneys and (most prominent citizens of the Coast, is being erected in the court house yard at Pascagoula, his home town, through the voluntary contribu tions of close personal friends and mem bers of the bar, says the Pascagoula Chronicle. The Ford Memorial Association, which has the matter in charge, was formed soon after Mr. Ford’s death last Dec ember, Mf. G. M. Luce of Mobile and Judge J. M. Neville, of Gulfport being leaders in the movement. The desire of the friends of Mr. Ford to erect a monument to his memory was submitted to Mrs. Ford, who gave her consent on ly with the understanding that all con tributions for the purpose be absolutely voluntary and without solicitation. This plan was adopted, and the beautiful and costly memorial now being erected in the courthouse is the result. The monument is being plkced at the northeast corner of the courthouse. It is a granite shaft, simple and chaste in design, about seven feet high and three feet square, the whole being about ten feet high. The shaft weighs 26,000 pounds. The inscription, while not de finitely settled, will be extremely sim ple carrying Mr. Ford’s name, the date of his birth and death, age, and the Uas, "firwtod by his . JNO. SHARP WILLIAMS ILL GET 200 TERM IN 0. $. SENATE. Democratic State Committee Declares Him Senate Nom inee in Absence of Opposi tion —Holden For Supreme Court Gov. Bilbo Bor rows $495,000 —Bonds Go Astray Through Lithogra phers’ Mistake. The Democratic State Executive Com mittee met at Jackson Tuesday and de clared John Sharp Williams the Demo cratic nominee for the United States Senate and Judge J. B. Holden the nominee for the Supreme court from the Southern district. The committee was in session only a few minutes, the procedure being pure ly formal. It gave its approval to sample ballots for use in the primary on August 15, as prepared and submitted by the Secre tary of state and the attorney general. Under the law it becomes the duty ol the executive committee to declare as nominees those candidates who have no opposition fifteen days before the pri mary. Governor Bilbo Borrows $495,000. The sum of $495,000 Tuesday was bor rowed by Governor Bilbo under author ity of an act passed at the last'session of the Legislature conferring this pow er upon him in the event that money was needed to care for running expenses of the government. The loan was made by Grant & Cos., of New York, at an in terest rate of 4.40 per cent. On June 20 the government borrowed $400,000 under the same authority from Comp ton & Company of St, Louis at 3.87 % payable on January 1, 1917. Of the sum borrowed Tuesday $146,000 is for the purchase of additional farm lands for the State penitentiary. That amount will come due on March 30, 1918. The governor has now borrowed all of the money authorized at the last session of the legislature and the State has sold all of the bonds that were also au thorized. The governor said that he felt sure that this would be sufficient to tide the state over the period when revenue came in slowly, Bondi Sent to Jackson, Mich. The failure of lithographed bonds to arrive Tuesday from New York pre vented the sum of SBOO,OOO from getting into the state’s strong box, but the money will be paid over tomorrow by Grant & Cos. of New York, who pur chased the bonds last week, if the documents arrive tomorrow and are signed by the governor. Mississippi state bonds to the amount of $500,000 matured Tuesday and the state had anticipated paying them with that part of the SBOO,OOO expected this morning. The lithographing firm mis directed the package of oonda to Jack son, Mich., and this caused the delay. However, telegrams state that the bonds haye been sent from Jackson, Mich., to this city, and should get hereby Wednesday. If they come In tomorrow the governor will spend a busy day attaching his signature to each one. The bonds have already been approved and as soon as they are signed they will be delivered to a local bank which has authority from Grant & Co.’to take them over and pay into the state treasury the sum they call for. Tne Winona, formerly a revenue cut ter on the sea coast, has been sold to W. M. Evans of Mobile to Francisco Negra, a wealthy Cuban raisea, for $30,- 000.
