You make no mistake when you trade at Mauffray . “The White Season” It’s the month to replace those curtains that won t stand an other trip to the wash tub. , . It’s the month to replace those blinds that have been faded by winter’s suns. It’s the month for lightweight undergarments, and the light and medium-weight hosiery. It’s the month for muslins and linens and cambrics and cretonnes, AND OUR STORE IS THE PLACE TO GET THEM. A WONDERFUL DROP in White Goods and Women’s Furnishings has occurred since last season. Possibly nothing else has registered a greater fall in prices. The bottom has been reached, however, AND WE HAVE A BIG STOCK AT BOTTOM PRICES. COME IN AND BE CONVINCED THAT WE CAN SAVE YOU MONEY.

L. Genin be and he is hereby requested to re fund said amounts to said city, other wise this Board will consider what further action it will take in the matter. MAYOR’S VETO. To the Honorable Board of Aider men of the City of Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. 1 enter this, my veto and disap proval of the ordinance, rule o r or der attempted to be passed on mo tion of Alderman Sick and second ed by Alderman Buehler, with refer ence to request to Robert Genin to pay the city certain money, be cause it was unanimously agreed services were rendered and money legally paid, and my further reasons therefor being that, said ordinance, rule or order is unconstitutional, ille gal and in violation of the charter of the City of Bay St. Louis and contrary to the welfare of the City of Bay St. Louis, and for other reas ons not necessary to be mentioned herein. R. W. WEBB, Mayor. Bay St, Louis, Miss., * April 28th, 1922. Mr, R. L. Genin, City Attorney, Bay St. Louis, Miss. Dear Sir: In conformity with our conversa tion the othe r day in regard to the transfer of the water works of San ger to the city, I beg to state that Mr. Sanger has given me the follow ing items yet outstanding which should be passed on by the Mayor and Board of Aldermen before the transfer is accomplished: For new water mains, etc., recently put down on Main Street and else where $7,266.95 CASTOR IA For Infants and Children In Use For Over 30 Years For 71 new- connections made since the appraise ment in 1921 426.00 $7,692.95 Lot 604 in the Ist Ward-- 100.00 Another lot in the 4th Ward (description I can not read) 50.00 Right of way to well on Citizens Street Also he wants it provided that the city can connect with his well at Waveiand as long as same is owned by him, but with the right to cut it off in the event the pipe line in the City of Bay St. Louis or along the front road should break or fail to be kept in good repair. Also the question of the rents re ceived and back rents due should be embraced in the order to be passed by the Board. I believe it is the un derstanding that when the transfer is affected that the city will receive the rents from that day forward and that the rents prior to that date are to be paid to Sanger. So far as 1 know these are the things which Sanger desires the Board to settle before the trade is concluded. Yours truly, GEX & WALLER, By C. L. WALLER.

Bt it further resolved, That the City of Bay St. Louis, in acquiring said water works system, shall own and collect the water rent from the date of the transfer, and that all wa ter rent prior to that time shall be the property of Mr. Chas. Sanger, and all water rents and contracts shall be computed accordingly. Be it further resolved, That the water rents shall remain and be charged at the same rate by the city from the date of the city’s ownership as was charged and fixed by Mr. Chas. Sanger until said rates or rental shall be revised and fixed by the Board of Mayo r and Aldermen. Be it further resolved, That the Mayor be and is hereby authorized and empowered to deliver the said warrants to Mr. C has.
