Two Fair* in Bay St. Louis; One For White the Other for Colored; Unde,- Auspices Hancock County Fair Association. Big posters over the county and city are conspicuous for their size, and the announcement carried, to the effect that the Hancock County Fair Association will hold two coun ty fairs in Bay St. Louis this month. The first will be the white Fair, held at the Court House, on next Thursday and Friday, October 6th and 7th. The second on Thursday and Friday, October 13th and 14th, at the Valena C. Jones High School building and grounds by the colored people and for the colored people. Both the white and colored fairs have separate catalogues, compre hensive in their scope and handsome i n their get-up, the association, re presented by the different executive committees, liberal in their list of prizes and the form of presentation. It might be well here to mention the liberality of the advertisers who hav e made these catalogues possible and the liberality of the public mak ing the list of the cash prizes possi ble. The county fair has become an es tablished fixity for Hancock. This will be the fourth annual fair. And its success is already assured. There has been complaint emanating from some quarters, that the Bay St Louis people who benefit largely by the Fair being held in their midst are in some quarters not cognizant of what the enterprise means, and they seem ingly show a lukewarmness by a lack of spirit and their absence from the activities. If this does exist, it should not, and it is hoped Bay St. Louis will turn out in full numbers next Thursday and Friday, and in the meantime boost the Fair for all they are worth. An exhibit at the Fair will identify you. Your presence will mean much. I n the meantime boost, boost, boost! Penny Party for Primary Depart ment Central School. There will be a Penny Party given at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. Fay ard, October 7th from 4 to 6 P. M., by the pupils in Miss Celine Fayard’s classes for a fund which has been previously started toward a Victrola for the primary department.- Twen ty dollars has been collected and is not sufficient. ************ * FOR SALEH * * MULE, WAGON, HAR- * * NESS, SADDLE. * * ALL FOR S6O. * * BERTRAND BORDAGE, * * Goodchildren St., Bay St. Louis. * ******** **** POST SEASON OF BASEBALL ENDED VICTORIUS FOR S. S. C. Last Game of Baitball Short Season Witnessed Sunday.—College De feated Canal-Commercial of New Orleans Bankers' League. It was quite an innovation of the athletic department of St. Stanislaus College to put on a post-season of baseball, and the three-week season afforded the fang and others the privilege of witnessing three excel lent games, viz: S. S. C. vs. Knights of Columbus of New Orleans, Park ers of New Orleans and Canal-Com mercial Bank team, also of the Cres cent City, th e College team winning all three. Winning the last game from the bankers afforded much satisfaction. There was a keen rivalry between both teams and the status of su premacy had, as a matter if fact, been clearly established. It is now settled and the collegians are su preme until next season, when the championship will again be contest ed. That all games of the post-season of baseball were well attended is an earnest of appreciation, an the ath letic department of St. Stanislaus College have not lost sight of this fact. A card of thanks to that ef fect appears elsewhere in this issue of The Echo. —There is no admission charged to the County Fair at the Court House next Thursday and Friday. r i. . ..... - The Charter of Incorporation of .

Patent Ofic* Granted Patent 'lbis Week.—Guard Will Save tb Heel and Prevent Turning of Foot Bay St. Louis has a lady inven tor and a clever one at that. Mrs. A. U. Bordelon was this week grant ed a patent by the U. S. Patent Of fice at Washington, for a heel guard, r rom the blue print it is readily noted that the contrivance is a prac tical one, and one that not only pro tects a lady’s high heel but will pre vent the wearer from turning on her heel or ankle as is often the case, and too often painful. The heel guard can also be wort t by gentle men. “The invention relates to shoe neel guards and has particular refer ence to the high-heeled shoes worn by women," says the description ac companying the blue print,” “the main object being the provision of a guard which will prevent the heel irom wearing sideways and thereby twist and weaken the ankle of the person wearing the same. “Another object is to provide a guard which will protect the heel and prevent tne same from being torn irom the shoe, this being a common occurrence wnen the foot of the wearer comes into violent contact witn a raised pavement or other similar construction.” Frank Ledermann, patent attor ney, of New fork, procued the pat ent for the patentee. The guard is made of metal, a plate extending under the shoe and along tne inner wall of the heel, con nects both plates. It is not notic able, and will not only brace the foot and avoid accidents but will save the shoe to an extent that will pay for the brac e many times more. Mrs. Bordelon has evolved quite a number of clever and practical de vices and contrivances. The merit of ner latest invention was readily re cognized by the Government depart ment of patents and her patent and ail rights were readily granted. COMMISSIONER’S SALE OP LAND.

Dear Sunburn: Well, bo, the summer’s nearly over—eh? Oh, I mean ’cordin' to the almanac, and that’s one drug leaflet what ca n never comerbage herself sose to look like the bible — am I right? Well, Redness, if you was here on a sojourn you’d® know how to answer without the able as sistance of a sweet-Sixteen’s letter writer. There’s about a million or more of guys and other folks what seem to not follow any literature be sides the funny papers and almanacs and as soon as Doc Cline begins to snortin’ out a few about the arrival of old lady Equinax, they packs up and starts back to the sky-scrapers, boasting about 69 per cent tan, 22 speckled trout and the etcetaras — not carin’ to be reminded of any fool thing like cat-fish and sheets. Them kind o’ ginks had orta get some kind o’ dope shot inta ’em to show they’d only got a half-portion and was leavin’ just when th e start ing gun was beginnin* to explode. Wouldn’t it kill you just how bugs some folks be? Red, I’m right here to shout at the world that the best time of the calendar year is just now beginnin’ to exhibit. Old Sol is about to lose both his pep and his punch—he rises late and flops early—the wet is still briny and good; the sliding trombone is still ballin’ the Jack and th e Janes look both riper and sweeter. —’cording to the almanac we’re in the Fall —but nary a tumble in sight, Red, unless it ssome of the fall-guys snoopin’ round. Sic ’em Foster has got his mitt full these days over at the House of Brains with a bunch of bony bubs what he has serious in tention of turnin’ into prize winnin’ slamovers. He’s got ’em all dolled up to look like Hun-gladiators with a lot of bone protectin' junk from the Bean to th e Bunion, and he’s putting through some jobs what make Walter Camp turn,to a Alice green. Give me your old cauliflow er, Red boy, that old Sic ’em boy’s goin’ to cop the tin can with them go-getters of his or my name’s Ar-! buckle. The way them guys are goin’ to hit the line will make an also ran out of a dozen Roscoe's, or I’m a tree kangaroo. I seen ’em go at each other like regardless of human life and a nasty spill or a little of the red is a tonic to them— them guys are paradin’ all down the highwty i n search of trouble and the cards read that the St. Aloysius gang are goin’ back hom e next Sun day so mamma wont know a dern son of the family—and Red, its a shame that th e Raver can’t get a poke at somebody’s culinary de partment in a scrimmage—he's ach ing all over to hammer ’em—Jumbo Jaubert's fixin’ to sit down on some body—and that'll be SOME CRUSH. Yet verily, anyhow. Red, I’ll give you the recipe soon, and wise you to the bunch what’s goin’ to put San Stan on th e Grid map this session of the pig-skin. Yours to a cinder, FULLER BULL.

John Draekett and son, Mr. Ernest Draekett, who operate the Bay St. Louis ferry, announce that beginning from today, October Ist, they will run on schedul# somewhat different from heretofore, the same as last winter. The first ferry will leave Bay St. Louis side at 7 o’clock a. ra., running every hour all day, and the last trip will leave this side at 5 o’clock. Returning leaving Henderson Point at 6 o’clock. The summer season has proven a most successul one, said Captain Draekett and his son to The Echo. We gave regular and libers! service and it is gratifying to note, they stated, that the public showed its appreciation by a liberal patronage. I n fact so successful has been the season, and the patronage accorded all the year ’round so liberal, that Captain Draekett and his son have returned from a trip, during their absence purchasing *~ne machinery of a '<at offered for sale and it is their intention to ha i o i*ew boat built with bigger capacity. The new boat will carry 24 automobiles on one trip across and the trip will be made in about 20 minutes. The boat in present use carries about 12 automobiles and takes a consider able length of tim e to cross the bay. A ferry must meet with the wishes of its patrons. The people wish to be ferried across not only in com fort and safety, but quickly. This is a day of fast transportation, and the people must be served. The Messrs. Draekett ar® elated over the prospects, appreciative of the patron age extended their enterprise, and expect to have their new boat in commission about the first of the new year. NOTICE TO CREDITORS.
