I ' FOB-K NOTES. Red Cross Is the Greatest Mother Of Ail—A Description of the Mean ing of the Square Cross. . “GIVE TO THE RED CROSS” Miso Catherine Laboulsse, of New Orleans. Visits Bay Chapter Interest cf Home Service. Give to the Tied Cross—the great est mother in the world. The meaning of our Red Cross.— “The red in our cross stands for sac rifice, for giving life, as the warm crimson blood gives life to the body. The cross has the same length on all four sides of its arms to signify that it gives life equaly to nil, high or low', east or west. It stands alone always, no words or markings on it, to show that the Red Cross have only one thought—to serve. They ask no question?; they care not whether the wounded be ours or of another peo ple. Their duty is to give and to give quickly. “The Red Cross stands on a white ground, because real sacrifice can come only from pure hearts. Service must come, not from hate, but from love; from the noblest thoughts and wishes of the heart, or it wil fail. That is why children love this Hag. It is drawing them by millions ip, the schools of our land, in a wonderful army of rescue under the President, to make, to save, to give for others. And some day the children of all lands, under the Red Cross, will teach the grown people the ways of understanding and of friendship; the beautiful meaning of the Red Cross which is echoed in their lives.”—H. IN- McCracken. “Girls and boys of America, you are the hope of the world!” is the eloquent message to the youth of America by Herman Kagedorn, a young American poet and patriot, which ie so expressive of the appeal that the Junior Red Cross is making to the little citizens of our country. Destiny, Fortune, God,, whatever you want to call it, laid on you the pri vilege and the responsibility of being the hope of a world in tears. You can carry this responsibility and be glo rious. You can throw' it off, and be damned; but you cannot ignore it. Let us be big enough to see the big things in this world and make ourselves a part of them. We were delighted at the patriot ism displayed in the parade, and the Junior Red Cross display in the win dow. The boys’ knitting and the girls’ beautiful layettes, which says; “Remember Belgium.” It is characteristic of the people of the United States that in the midst of their own momentous problems due to entrance into the world-war they still remember Belgium. Our Civilian Relief Committee is doing valuable work, and now they are to have some home service work ers. Miss Catherine Labouisse from New Orleans was present Thursday afternoon and made a plendid talk on the Home Service Course, which wall be given in Biloxi for four weeks, beginning on next Tuesda and will embrace three days of each week, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The lesture will begin about 11 A. M. and last a little over one hour. She outlined the course as follows; 1 — The Why, What and Where of the Heme Service of the Red Cross. 2 The Normal Family; Its Prob lems and Resources -3 How Home Service Is Carried On. _ 4 Health Problems In Home Ser vice Families. 5 Child Welfare. 6 Unstable Families. 7 Family Income; Its Use through a Budget. B—Community Resources for Home Service Families. She gave a brief outline ns tojme above topics, and showed that skilled workmen were needed. The delicate work of going into homes and gaining the confidence of pe pie require* a tender, gentle, sym pathetic, trained heart and that is why these courses are planned. Tha illnaw of Mr*. A. L. Stokoe, chairman of tk* Executive Commit tee, is noted with regret. Mrs. Sto koe was unable to attend the various meetings during the week as result of her indisposition. Until further notice, meetings of the Executive Committee will be held on Friday afternoons instead of on Thursday afternoons. If we make a bandage wrong, it can easily be made over; but it we wound the feelings, or misconduct the affairs of a household,it cannot be so easily remedied. So the Home Service Com. helps people to help themselves and to avoid pauperiza tion; aso presents the greatest op portunity to save democracy. We hope as many as can will take advantage of this course. Bay Chapter stands secon in efficiency in Red Cross work in Gulf Division, so Mr. Christ said, and we want to be prepared for Home Ser vice. , , Whoever has shipped refugee gar jjignts please report to the secretary.

Fire From Supposed Defective Flue Tuesday Morning Consumed Star- Hpper Home—Owned by E. E, Lu cas— Partially Covered by Insur ance In Local Agency. Shorty before 9 o’clock Tuesday morning fire caused from a defective flue, destroyed the one-story frame dwelling occupied by A. W. Star lipper and family and owned by E. E. Lucas. The flames originated under the roof, over one of the bed rooms, where fire had been built in one of he fire places •. few moments pre riously- The usual alarm was given and citizens and the city fire engine responded. Contents of the house were saved, but the property was practically des troyed—the front porch and wall of the house remaining, but of no value to be used again. About $2,000 is the estimated val ue of the property, covered by SI2OO insurance in the Queen Insurance Cos., Jos. F. Cazeneuve local agent. The adjoining dwellings of neigh bors were saved from slightest dam aged by the volunteer firemen and the city’s fire engine, in charge of Chief Louis Schwab. The Starlipper family have moved in the Heymann cottage on the beach front. BAY FORESTERS INSTALL. Ceremony Followed by Spread at the Home of Mrs. G. Y. Blaize. The heme of Mrs. G. Y.

LADNER, Sec'y. mirmmDftH i iwr iiOIOKoAN LIl jun&ip cts noapT ALlib deft bOHui TOJppi v m cinui ULLidlhoLl illuibm Recent Legislation Empowers Muni to Construct System Along Ivllssisslppi Coast. TO CONNECT N. O. AND MOBILE New Orleans Ready To Do Her Pari of Connecting tho Coast Towns With Outside World. Construction of an electric in terurban railway between New Or leans and Mobile, to be owned by the municipalities along the route- will fellow the close of the war. if the plans that are now being worked cut are put into clieot. The building of an electric line be tween New Orleans and Mobile has been discussed for some time, but nothing could be done in that direc tion until an enabling act could be secured from the Mississippi Legls lautre. The Mississippi Legislature, at the recent session, passed the law and the way is now open for the con struction of the interurban as soon as the war situation adjusts itself so that bonds can be floated and mate rial can be purchased. Although nothing can be done to ward building the line while the war lasts, it is the intention of the muni cipalities interested, it is understood to make a preliminary survey witn the view of ascertaining the approxi mate cost-, so that when peace is res tored the work of construction will proceed rapidly. It is very likely that a conference will be held at Gulfport or Biloxi within the nex. few weeks, to launch the movement for the interurban. The ten.-.3 of the Mississippi coast that wili be called upon to participate in the construction of the new elec tric line are; Waveland, Bay St. Louis, Pass Christian Long Beach, Gulfport, Biloxi, Ocean Springs, Pas cagoula and Moss The new law enacted by the Legislature en ables them to combine and co-oper atc with each other and with munici palities in other States. This will authorize the Mississippi municipalities to deal with the city of New Orleans which, it is under stood stands ready to build its end of the road from the Louisiana-Ivlissis sippi line into the city. The city of New Orleans is in position to build its end of the inter urban through the Public Belt Ra 1- xcad, in the opinion of City Attor ney L. D. Moore- who rendered an opinion on the subject at the request of Mayor Behrman. Judge Moore held that the Publicßelt has the right to build and operate a railroad in the parish of Orleans or any of the adjacent parishes, and under this au thority the Public Belt can cross the parish of St. Tammany and connect with the Missisippi system at the State line. If present plans are carried out, the Mississippi division of the system will connect with the public belt at some point on Pearl River at or near Logtown or Pearlington. The city of New Orleans will have the right to determine the route of the railroad from the city to the state line. Mississippi municipalities inter ested are anxious to connect up their line with the interurban road in St. Tammany parish at some point near Slideli, and thus establish an inter urban system on the north side of Lake Pontchartrain that may be ex tended to Hammond and Baton Rouge. It is very likely that the St. Tammany municipalities will be ask ed to participate in the conference for the purpose of launching the enterprise. If Louisiana munic - palities outside of New Orleans need any additional to enable them to join in the work they will be in position to secure it from the le gislature, when that body meets at Baton Rouge in May. What the Mississippi Law is. The act passed by the Mississippi legislature empowers municipalities chat wish to take advantage of the law to issue bonds for the construc tion of electric interurban railways and hydro-electric plants. The muni cipalities are given the right to moru cage the railway and all of its re ceipts for the purpose of raising money for construction purposes. In this way it is plain :c 1 to build the line without costing the tax-payers a cent beyond the cost of the sur vey While the boncis aie to be un derwritten by the mu "licipalities, it is figured that the traffic receipts, when the line is in operation, will bring sufficient revenue to provide for op erating and maintaining a .-inmag fund for the retirement of the secu rities when due. . _ There are several streams m boutn Mississippi that will furnish power for hydro-electric plants and tne new law authorizes the use of these water courses. The act confers on munici palities full authority to expropriate property for rights of way, sidings, depots, ’ power plants or anything else necesary in the operation of an inter-urban system.
