Bill Raisers Busy and Several Bad Tens and Twenties Have Appeared in Local Circulation. Merchants and business people gen erally are warned to be on the look out for "bad" ten and twenty dollar bills of the Federal Reserve Bank. The bills in question are ones and twos which have been raised to ten and twenty respectively. A "twenty" ap peared in the deposits of a local mer chant at the Merchants & Marine bank and a "ten" in the deposits of another marehant at the Pascagoula National bank during the past week. The treas ury department has been advised of the appearance of the bogus bills. Whether the raised bills are local products or drifted in from elsewhere is not known. The work of raising the bills is cleverly done and is the work of an artist. Only by careful scrutiny can the changed figures be noted. Everyone is advised to look careful ly at all bills of ten and twenty denomi nations coming into their possession. U. S. POPULATION GAINS 15 PER CENT. DURING 10 YEARS Census Bureau Announces 105,683,108 Persons Live Within Continental Boundaries. Washington, Oct. 7. The 1920 popu lation of Continental United States was announced today by the census bureau as 105,(188,108. This was an increase of 13,710,842, or 14.9 per cent since 1910. Today's total does not include the populations of outlying possessions which will be announced as soon as the figures from Alaska and the mili tary naval service abroad are tabu lated. It is estimated, however, that these possessions have 12,250,000 In habitants, so that the total number of people living under the American (lag is in round numbers 118,000,000. The figures for continental United States compare with 91, 972, 260, ten years ago, and 75. 994, 575 twenty years ago. The increase for the last decade however, fell 2,20(1, S49, or 0.1 per cent below that of the preceding decade.

Prelminary tabulations, Mr. Rogers said, showed that 54,816,69 or 31.9 per cent of the people were living in incorporated places of 2,500 inhabitants or more and 50,860,899 or 48.1 per cent, in rural territory.

There was an interesting group of attendants upon both the bride and groom, the cere mony taking place at the Methodist church at 7 o'clock, a large assemb lage of invited guests being present. The ceremony was performed by Rev. J. H. Ellis, pastor of the church. The church was beautiful In its decora tions, graceful ferns and trailing vines forming a pretty back ground about the chancel, and tall vases filled with gracefully arranged queenswreath, de veloped the pink and green color tones. Chandeliers filled with lighted tapers cast a soft glow upon the sur roundings. When the wedding guests had been seated by the ushers Miss Dora Cowan sang sweetly "All For You," Miss Mary Ada Stewart sang "At Dawning," and Mrs. J. C. Mont gomery, "Bcause." Mrs. F. C. Wil liams accompanied them and all were prettily gowned in white. The bride's attendants, who included Misses Jessie Bounds, Louise Cowan, Helen Turner sister of the groom, and Mrs. Dennis Grandberry, scarcely more than a bride herself, all wore beautiful taffeta dresses, developing the rainbow colors OIL NOTES. The Seacoast has set eight-inch cas ing at 2398 feet. Several days will elapse for the cement to set and drill ing will probably not be resumed until the latter part of next week. Indica tions in this well for the past several hundred feet have been highly encour aging and the bringing in of a big gas or oil well is predicted by several well known oil men. who have been watching operations. Drilling at the Georgia Company's well has been shut dowu for several days, due it is said, to dissension In the company. It is reported on the streets that a reorganization has been effected and Mr. Gary placed at head of board of directors. The new man ager is expected to arrive today from Atlanta and work resumed on the ar rival of a quantity of six-inch casing, which has been delayed in shipment. Those in a positon to know are con fident that the company will bring in a good well. While the exact depth reached is not known on the outside, our information is that it is around 2,000 feet.

In the Star of February 7th, 1874 the following interesting editorial ap peared: "We believe our locality can boast of as energetic, go-ahead, active, citi zens as can be found in the State; and withal as liberal and public-spirited In this do we place much dependence in our calculations of what the future has in store for us; and upon this do we mainly reply, when we predict Pascagoula is to become a pride and ornament to the State; a seaport Which is to relieve her of paying tribute to her sister States; a com mercial emporium which shall sit like a queen upon the Gulf, and upon which she can lavish her favors and affections. We do not think we over draw the picture for we have already a commerce, valuable now, and which is constantly and surely increasing. This trade has been brought about by the energy and enterprise of a few in dividuals engaged in the manufacture of lumber; the demand for which is continually increasing, and presents a field which is indeed "co-extensive with the globe itself." Among the pioneers in the business, and one of the most successful operators, is the head of the firm of Denny & Co., who is mentioned as below, in the Meridian Gazette: "Our old friend Walter Denny, a re spected member of the legislature from Jackson county in 1860-64 has, we learn, accumulated a snug fortune of one hundred thousand dollars since the war in the lumber trade at Pasca goula. He owns his own schooners and several profitable steam mills in tlhe vicinity, and ships cargoes of lumber to South America, Canada, Europe, Japan, and other quarters of the earth. The field for enterprise in this business is co-extensive with the globe itself." The Star of February 1, 1874 ex cerpts from the Mobile Evening Graphic an item of importance to the citizens of Pascagoula. An article headed "Pascagoula's Lumber Trade" gives these facts: "There are now upwards of thirty vessels loading lumber below East Pascagoula, for foreign and domestic ports. This is the largest fleet ever moored at that port, and the fact is flattering to the press of East Pascagoula, which has done much to attract business there, and develop the resources of that sec tion of Mississippi. Since Colonel Melancthon Smith Ihas made his pop ular journal the guiding Star of the people of that portion of Jackson county, more thai usual activity has been aroused, and laudable efforts have been made to improve the facili ties of navigation tlhere. In 1867, Dr. James Noyes, of New Orleans, aided by the capital of General S. L. Brown, of that city, formerly of Chicago, un der a charter from the State of Missis sippi, granted in January of that year, begai the construction of a canal at HEALTH LECTURE AT THE RED CR08S ROOMS Dr. W. F. Brown, the Washington, D. C, visited the Red Cross Chapter House on Wednesday afternoon, and delivered a most instructive and en tertaining address to an audience com posed of thirty-five or forty Red Cross workers. Dr. Brown is connected with the public health service at Washing ton, D. C.i and is now engaged in pre senting health matters to the country, through the medium ef the Red Cross His theme is the prevention of dis eases, Instead of the cure of them, and he cited many illustrations and scien tific facts to show that fully forty per cent of the ills of man can be pre vented. His address was full of pert! nent illustrations and sound advice, and will prove of great benefit to the Red Cross workers here in their efforts to create a health centre and to do preventative work among the school children and others. Mrs. William Hardee, of New Orleans, was present at the same meeting, and made a few pertinent remarks on the work of the Red Cross in the Gulf Division. STREET PAVING FINISHED. The contractors this week completed the city paving, which has been under way for several months. Shortage of cars, transportation difficulties and oth er troubles beyond control was respon sible for the long delay in completing the work, but now that it is all over the people of Pascagoula can congratu late themselves on having the best paved business section of any city in the state. The total length of the newly paved streets is about one and a half miles. The paving is six inches in thickness, consisting of four inches of concrete with two inches of asphalt- gravel composition on top. REAL ESTATE IN JACKSON COUNTY Recorded In Chancery Clerk's Office For Week Ending Oct. 1, 1920; MOBILE FAIR. Te Gulf States Agricultural Live stock Fair, called for short, the Mobile Fair, as it is intended to interest every body in Mobile trade territory, will be held November 8-14. Manager Bixler says that there will be the best entertainment program from every standpoint that has ever been offered. When it is remembered how much the war set agriculture back, in the coast country, the agricultural and horticultural exhibit will be phe nomenal. The livestock show and auction sales will interest every farmer who believes in purebred cattle and hogs. On Tuesday, November 9, there will be a sale of Duroc Jerseys by the best breeders in the Gulf Coast section. On Friday, the 12th, there will be a sale of Hampshires from the best breeding establishments in Georgia. On Saturday, the 13th, there will he a sale of Hereford cattle from the West Dallas Farms at Orrville, Ala. These features alone give an excuse for the existence of the Mobile Fair.

A better baby campaign will be con ducted at Chapter headquarters on October 28th, 29th and 30th. Age limit six years. This work will be un der the direction of a nurse from the division, and there will not be any charge. Do not forget the date. Bring you babies and find out if they have any defects before it is too late. Every body in Jackson county is invited to attend this campaign. One out of every five dies of pre ventable diseases during the first year of its life. One out of every ten deaths from preventable diseases is caused from tuberculosis. The death rale from pneumonia for 118 was 298 per 100,000. No mother's baby is safe until every baby is safe. A Red Cross health center will help reduce this mortality and will prevent the great economic loss caused by pre ventable disease and death. Jackson county needs a health center. Hon. L. E. Evans, commissioner of immigration for Porto Rico, who is spending his vacation n Pascagoula, left Thursday for Washington for a conference with the chief of his department. Mayor F. H. Lewis will leave Satur day for New York and other points east, combining business and pleasure. Mrs. Arthur Allen was a visitor to I New Orleans Wednesday.
