A message from New Orleans on Wednesday morning, February Bth, 1922, announced the passing away of the young and gentle spirit of Mrs. Paul M. La Crone, nee Blanche Muller, a native of Bay St. Louis, and a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Muller, Sr., former and well-known residents of this city for nearly 20 years. Mrs. La Crone was also a sister of Mr. George J. Muller, for mer assistant cashier of the Mer chants Bank, and a neice of C. G. Moreau of this city. The deceased was taken ill shortly after Christmas and her death fol lowed as a result. For one so young and whose illness was of short dura tion hey passing away was a distinct shock to the friends and others who knew her, both here and in New Or leans. Her husband and a daughter, Dorris, 5 years old, survive. The funeral took place in New Or leans Thursday morning from the late residence in Salcedo, near Canal streets, and from the church of the Sacred Heart and interment at Me tairie Cemetery, a wealth of flowers decorated the tomb, and attesting to the love and affection in which the deceased was held by the many. Mrs, La Crone was educated by the sisters of St. Joseph, Bay St. Louis and New Orleans. She was 27 years of age. Of her, it can truly be said she was a loving daughter, a dutiful wife a devoted mother and a true friend. We know of no fitting and more worthy tribute. Her death leaves a void in aching hearts and her memory will ever remain fresh in the minds and hearts of those who loved and knew her best. Mr. and Mrs. Muller, the parents and family, who are so well-known here by reason of their long resi dence, have the sympathy of their many local friends and acquaintan ces. BAY ST.

SUCCESSFUL ENTERTAINMENT GIVEN SATURDAY NIGHT. “Road to Paradise” and Other Fea tures, Including Sketches By the Shields Well Received by Crowded House—Benefit Guild of Christ Episcopal Church. A large and cultured audience as sembled at Woodmen auditorium last Saturday night to witness the presentation of an entertainment that was far above the average, and which was received with much en thusiasm and liberal applause, tes tifying to the merit of the program, such liberal manifestation was an appreciation worthily bestowed. The first number was a series of tableaux, representing stories of childhood days. These were vividly and truthfully portrayed by a num ber of younger people. Mrs. J. H. Elliott had this in charge and the success of the presentations reflected her talent and ability. It might not be amiss here to say that Mrs. Eliott is the authoress of a number of plays. Miss Evelyn Lacoste, gifted with marvelous voice, successfully ren dered a number followed by an en core, and as a prelude to the panto mine play, “The Road to Paradise,” sang “The Way to Paradise,” with much feeling and usual ability. Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Shields, lo cal favorites, rendered the playlet, a travesty on “Camille,” injected with lot of local allusions. The farce was presented in their own initimable way and was uproarious ly funny. They were liberally ap plauded and it was evident they had won favor over the entire house. Mrs. Walter Saxon, well-known New Orleans presented the monologue, “Mirandy,” by Dorothy Dix. Her interpretation was excel lent and took with instant favor. The attention given a performer and the applause that followed are unfailing registers of the audience’s pleasure and appreciation. Last but by no means least, was the presentation of the panto mine, “The Road to Paradise,” poem by the late Catherine Cole, read by Mrs. Saxon behind the wings and and in terpreted by Miss Lillith Ansley as the fair young maiden in quest of paradise, and Mr. Santos Shields as the Youth who shows the way. Other figures prominently portraying the story were Eugene Ansley as old age, Gordon Borden as the beggar, Randolph Firsching as the stalwart young soldier and Bernard Shields as God’s good man. The gentlemen were excellent in their respective portrayals. Miss Ansley and Santos Shields were ideal in the cast > and so finished was their presentation that nothing was left to be desired. Their work was beautiful and refreshing. This concluded the program and dancing until the midnight hour con cluded the evening’s pleasure. The entertainment was given un der the auspices of the Guild of the Christ Episcopal Church, and it might well be said the effort was both a social and financial success. Among the workers in the cause who helped to make this success possible were Mesdames Abrahams, Rea, Leonhard, Horton, Chapman, Power, Firsching, Borden, Crawford > Four nier, deMontluzin, Edwards, Worsley, Nelson, Perry. 4 4 4444 444444444 fr a ■}■ .;■ aa a 4~A4fr444443444 < fr < H > 4444 44 4 'S’ 4 4 ■H M N t *i 1* • Hancock |onnfg iank. il BAY ST.

THIRTY-FIRST YEAR—-No. 7. HENRY FORD’S HALF DOZEN SUCCESS RULES. (Albert Sidney Gregg, in Leslie’s Weekly.) “For the benefit of young men who are striving to make the most of themselves, I am willing to name some of the rules that have been of help to me. I did not find them in a book, but evolved them myself out,£|| my experiences.” Henry Ford, of Detroit was the speaker. We were at luncheon and had been discussing a variety of matters. “Work is my first rule of success,” he continued, “and I want every young man to learn that rule so thor oughly that he never will forget it. A wise man has said that genius is but an unusual faculty for taking pains, and I know he is right. What do dreams and ideals amount to, if you are not willing to peg away at dry routine labor to make them tan gible? “If you are hammering away at something, don’t give up because you fail to find the combination the first time. Stick at it. You certainly won’t win by quitting. “Of they are all important but one that I think a great deal of is: Take time to do things well It was just twelve years from the time I made my first automobile until I manufactured any for sale. And in that 12 years I made only five cars. I was testing and experimenting. It was a time of getting ready. In re cent years we have spent $40,000,000 preparing to make and sell tractors. Now we have everything in shape, and we will make and market a mil lion a year. We are ready because we have tested the machine at every point, have overcome every possible objection and know what it will do. “Right in conneceion with this rule I want to say that I hae always found that it paid to get all the facts I could myself. For that rea son I keep in close touch with every thing in which I am interested. Oth ers may report with perfect honesty but they may not see all that should be seen. “Another perfect good rule is to be optimistic I What I mean is for you to believe that good is stronger than evil and will eventually triumph “Last of all, don’t be too proud to do anything within your power to push the business in which you are engaged. Fool pride gets in the way of a man’s advancement. So don't be afraid of overalls or a little grease or dirt, if such things are a part of the job to be done. “Foolish pride never gets a man anywhere. It is a great hindrance. “These rules will work. I know, for I have tried every one of them.” FREE COTTON SEED. To the People of Hancock County: I have allotted to me for distribu tion to the farmers several hundred packages of cotton seed. The gov ernment says the seed are very fine. I will be glad to send a package to any farmer writing for same, as long as the supply lasts. PAUL B. JOHNSON, M. C. Washington, D, C.
