Just what these disbursements have been we are not fully Inforned for reason that; state meats have1 not been '"provided and published to show the tax-payers the financial condition of the city.

According to the Star of February 6, 1876, "Succeass Means Hard Work In 1855 a young gentleman registered his name In the largest hotel in the city of Louisville, Ky. He had a pretty good wardrobe, such as men usually have, including a gold watch and chain. He was in search of occupa tion. At the expiration of two weeks he took an inventory of his personal effects. Out of work and no business. He had a brief interview with the pro prietor of the hotel. His trunk was left as security for his board bill; he hypothecated his watch for the loan of $10, and having kissed the tip end or his coral Angers to a kind and sympathetic love lost,, he went diving for the bottom. He found bottom on Water street, where a steamer was being discharged of cotton by Dutch men, Negroes and Yankees. Having purchased a heavy pair of boots, a blue shirt, and overalls, he commenced roll ing and piling cotton at the rate of five cents per bale. Jn three weeks he was promoted to the nnnltlnn of marker, with a salary of $46, per month, and at the expiration of nine months he had a right to grow mel low over a salary of $125 per month. Today this gentleman is one of the largest business operators in Bay street." The Star of March 6th, 1875, says: "A new vessel in the shape of a steam boat, the Favorite, from New Orleans was added last week to the Pascagoula craft.

While there is so much criticism of the Government going on, and now that the war is over nobody seems to have a kind word for Uncle Sam, I would like to call attention to one really good and first class thing he is doing, The Government has appropriated $90,000,000 to help all those who have been incapacitated by the war to fit themselves for jobs. That is quite a tidy sum. Do you know about it? Are you a disabled soldier, or do you know of one? If so, here is the chance to find out that the Country that asked that man to flgh for it is not altogether ungrateful Every week hundreds of service men are discharged as cured from the Gov ernment hospitals, and at the same time returned to civilian status, but these young men in many cases are not physlcially and mentally able to take up their former vocation.

"An organization planned to function ..with dignity and respect yet with courage and the determination of sensible men with the real manhood to at once fully investigate all munici pal Ills and safeguard whatever we may have remaining of value in our property and our credit, preventing an actual state of bankruptcy of the en tire City of Pascagoula. "Whether the present administration has exercised wisdom or not In its public business methods we do not at this time consider nor do we charge insincerity nor specilic mismanage ment here. We simply realize a con dition that wiil not be further borne V the taxpayer and will demand emedy. ' "We declare an exisiting disburse ment of public funds which will event ually bankrupt the property owner and lay by said elected niembeis. Under stood that the Assocation will con tinue as active organization looking to future welfare of conditions and bet terment of affairs touching all public matters, And be it further "Resolved, That a president, a vice preseident, a. secretary and n treas urer be officers and that an executive committee consisting of six additional members of the association be elected to form a total executive committee of ten members with the officers, acting in authority. That they be In structed to arrange for an attorney for the association to be selected by them after due and full consideration of needs." Permanent organization was effect ed by the election of the following of- Cera: E. J. Jane, president; McVca Young, vice-president; V. P. Dejean. secretary: T. J. Schleisser, trasurer; L. E. Cox, V. L. Clinton. S. II. Frederic. E. B. Martin. V. Ros and J. J. Mar thaler, executive committee. A membership list pledging sup port to the organization, each signer subscribing toward immediate and necessary expense, was circulated at the meeting and signed by some seventy-live citizens. The signers pleuge themselves to subscribe such further sums as may be necessary to carry out the organization's work, the total amount to be called for in any one year not to exceed one per cent promulgated we can confidently wa our citizens to be on the qui vive the P. C. K's." The Star of March 27, 1875, has this interesting article: "The Pascagoula and Jackson railroad Is a subject that lias been quietly dropped and nothing said about it for some time. To some, perhaps to a majority of persons, the idea of a railroad from this place to the interior of State may seem chim erical, but stranger things than that have happened, and it will happen some of these dys, of this we have no doubt, at all. The matter ought to be agitated, and if the geuetlemen who compose the corporators were to hold u meeting perhaps something of bene fit may be evolved. Not very many years ago Mr. Baldwin of Mobile used to button-hole every person he met in the street and talk about a railroad from that city, north through Ten nessee, and everybody thought the old gentlemen cracked and voted him a bore of the first grade, but the result of his persistent talking was the Mo bile and Ohio Railroad. A railroad from Mississippi's chief port north ward, either to Jackson, or continu ously through the State between the M. & O. Railroad and the New Orleans and Jackson Railroad is for the State a necessity, and thns she can ship her produce through her own port.

Later the hostess served a delicious salad course. Friends here of Mrs. Jack Ryan, vho will be remembered as Nan Eaie Henry, regret to learn of her injury n an auto accident In Gulfport last week. Mrs. Ryan's condition, tho serious is somewhat improved and hope is entertained for a speedy recovery. Little Miss Clare Dclmas, who celebrated her eighth birthday Satur day, entertained a number of little friends who enjoyed a birthday party with her, including eats served them by her sister,- Miss Irene Delmas. The laying of the concrete on the Moss Point-Pascagoula Highway has been completed across Bellvieu avenue and will be opened to travel in about two weeks. The work on the road has created a new mode of entertainment. With thirty-five men, ten mules and trucks, a concrete mixer and a steam roller all at work at the same time proves most interesting and fascinat ing, as was the case Monday after noon when some fifteen ladies gather ed at tbe home of Miss Ina Thompson for a "fence party." Assisted by Mrs. M. P. Hobdy, Miss Thompson served delicious candy, stuffed dates and peanuts while the guests hung upon the fence to watch the road work, the weather being ideal. As the work pro gresses down the front street others will no doubt entertain at these de lightful "fence parties." abled ex-service man honorably dis charged since April 7, 1917, who is unable to carry on at his former work without a real handicap and whose con dition makes such training feasible, in this way the Government has pro vided a comparatively happy and in dependent future for such men. The Government now pays men from $80 to $170 per month, according to a man's dependents and the cost of liv ing in the locality in which he is trained. These men are trained at many of the best professional and trade schools in the country; others aire train ed on the job with some practical firm ; others prefer to keep their present positions and study in night courses without .training pay in order to ad "vance themselves. If a man's eligibility can be estab lisbed, he can be almost immediately enrolled in a school or placed in train ing for a trade with some firm. Men from out of town will be furn ished free railroad transportation up on request and given meals and lodg ing where necessary. Lack of schooling does not make a man ineligible. The Board will en deavor to train the most illiterate foreigners. Many men think It is necessary for them to leave home towns In order to get training of any sort. As the Board places a great many men in "placement trainng on '.be lob", it is quite possible that a man can liv; at home vjKw taking training. If any man has a reason why he can not accept vocational training at the hands of the Federal Board, he is urg ed to brjng that reason to the attention of the Board. If he is right, his case will be reired to the Board's inactive files until he wishes to open it again. If he has been misinformed. 'the Board will set him right. The Board states it is continually running into men who do not know what they may be en titled, tor instance to compensation from the War Risk Insurance Bureau, and also to training under the Federal Board. You may have heard ex-soldiers or others say that the Government draft ed them to fight, and now that it's all over, it casts them aside, and cares nothing for them. If you have read what I have written here you know that is not so. All you have to do is to write to the Federal Board for Vocational Edu cation, 736 Carondelet St., New Or leans, La., and you will receive full information. That does not mean you may have W come to New Orleans. The Board Ranches all over the country in almoaWery large city, but you can wrue tthe Now Orleans office and find Dtu If you a in any way disabled why not receivtjfhis help? You are en titled to It, ,Vd the Board is anxious to find you. (Copyright, tii by Frank Cranc ) SCHOONIIt LOST. The L. N. Dan tiler Lumber Co, re celved a cablegram last Sunday tell ing of the lose of the American schoon er Susie B. Dantzler at Frontera, Mex ico. This home vessel was in com mand of Oapt. Frank Dethloff, veteran seafarer of Moss Point, it la supposed that the schooner, which waa freight ed with coal, was driven on the rocky coast by a havy northeaster. Capt. Dethloff and his crew are sate and have left for this port. The Susie B. Dantzler, familiarly called the "Water Wagon," was built by Capt. George Frentz, pioneer ship builder at the site of the Gulf Ship Company's shipyard on Pascagoula river, eighteen, years ago. Recently the ill-fated schooner was thoroughly overhauled. Capt. Dethloff is recognised as the oldest ship master in the Mexican trade. He has been plying between Moss Point and the Mexican coast for the past thirty years. The many friends of the genial captain are happy to learn that he reached shore in good shape. NUMB! ESTATE REAL JACKSON Recorded In Chancery CtoHr for the Wek tnfdnt January 14th. CIVIC LEAGUE.

HOME ECONOMICS. By 10LA MONTEITH. Why should we interest ourselves in poultry? 1. It requires less capital to start In with poultry than anv line of liv stock. 2. Chickens are best farm foragers and will consume a great deal of waste food, which will otherwise go Sk waste, and turn it into profitable products. 3. In many instances, the chickens on the farm entirely pay the grocery bill. A few suggestions before hatching: 1. Select eggs for hatching that are' num iiieuiuin in size 10 large. Avoid freakish eggs such as too long, too short, wrinkle shell, and those with ridges around them, these eggs do not hatch well, if at all. 2. Keep your eggs for hatching In a cool dry place. The cellar makes . good place, if dry. 3. The sooner you can set the eggs after they are laid, the better the hatch will be. If you are getting eggs by express or parcel post, it Is well to let them stand a day or two to allow them to settle f the jn -nr he? get in shipping. These mehods help you: 1.
