The rooms In which the four tables for the players were arranged were lovely In their yule tide decorations, southern Bmilax and ivy interspersed with pine branch es and holly forming the embellish ment, and to further emphasize I he spirit of the season a beautiful little Christmas tree all ararngcil in the bright and lovely Christmas decor ations, stood just in the arch dividing the two rooms. Three games of auction were enjoyed, and the ClUh prize, a beautiful crepe de chine cami sole, was won by Miss Bstell'e Watkins, and the guests prize, a lovely basket of delicious CI MeVea Young a delicious plate luncheon Five Acre Play Ground to Be Improved to Give Impertus to Athletics in Schools. Mayor Lewis lias initiated a plan to make our kiddies ol tne punne scnouis happy the coming year, and at the same time give a strong stimulus to atheltics in the schools. Sonic months ago, at a time when the city was not in a position to issue bonds for needed grounds and addition al school building, a dozen enterpris ing citizens arranged the funds and bought a live-acre tract on Pascagoula si reel and built a temporary school house to take care of the situation. Since then the city council has issued the necessary bonds and taken over the property, and are now fencing it, leveling the grounds, etc., the rear of Which will be used as an athletic field for the schools of the city. The council is not authorized, nor has il the funds, to purchase all neces sary equipment to make an up-to-date athletic Held, such as t lie children are due. The mayor estimates it, will re quire approximately $1,000 to do this, and selecting a list Of fifty citizens, who have always responded to the de mand tor the city's progress and de velopment, has addressed a letter to them, suggesting that $10. from each Of I hem would form a nucleus tor the required fund and that other Interested parties would make up the balance in subscriptions of one to five dollars. . . Every school patron and friend of the city is therefore requested to send to Mr. Lewis such amount as they may feel they can donate tn this most worthy cause. Mr. Lewis advises us that the gentle men to whom he lias addressed the letter, are responding promptly near ly all, With a note heartily endorsing the plan and purpose. following is the mayor's letter: Pascagoula. Miss.. Dec. 8, 1920.

F. Pickett for a most execellent road from Bcranton on to that place. As road overseer he discharged his duty thoroughly. We prophesy that the day is not far distant when the travel between the two localities will demand a horse railroad and Moss Point thus be brought within half an hour's ride of the depol. And if one existed now from the depot to the seashore we would find that Pascagoula as a sum mer resort would be much more ex tensively patronized. Our visitors complain of the hot, dirty ride tliey now have to take. And by the bye we have heard a river road broached; a shell road running from the depot along the bank of the river and thence out (he bay road, would make a pleas lint drive which feuld prove an at traction to persons getting off the ears bound for ''the coast," besides being B pleasant drive for home folks; and as it would much enhance the value of the property along the river, the real-estate owners there should start the ball in motion. We know one of them who will give one hundred dol lars. Who say another hundred?" The Star of April 4, 1874 contains this note: "Oji U train of the New Orleans and Mobile R. R., last week we saw a sight which would have in duced some of our up country, hunt ing, friends to jump overboard if they j had his gun. Seemngly a black j cloud rested upon the waters of a bay we were passing over, and as the train : approached it rose and proved to be I ducks, as thick as they could sit to gether, and about the size the flock of a ten acre lot. i The Star of December 12. 1874, I makes note of "Some Turnips. Mr. I Krebs sends us a turnip weighing 6 lbs. and measuring 22 inches around it. raised by Mr. B. H. Toomer on his Bayou Casotte place, and says that he J had one of same lot weighing 14 1-2. j with top. measuring 24 inches. Mr. Toomer has about 1-4 of an acre of such turnips as these. On November 2Slh, 1S74, the Star prints this item: "All the girls are i becoming vegetarians. They wear turn-up hats, and reddish noses and ! cherry lips." 1 About sunflowers, the Star of Oc tober 10. 1874, 'has ie following ac count: "Sunflowers are rich in honey, and consequently good neighbors for i bees. Oil, hardly to be distinguished ! from olive oil by any one but an ex perl, may be extracted from the seeds, in the proportion of one gallon to one bushel. One acre will produce some thing like fifty bushels of seeds. The seeds, too, make food nol unpalatable lor human beings and very good for animals and poultry. The Portuguese and American Indians make a kind of bread from them, and roasted they may 1 be ground and used as a substitute for ' coffee. The stalks may be used as I liean poles while growing.
