Sheriffs, county education, mlnlste ors of municipalities SANITARY ORDERS AND tWMM. City of Pascagoula and Vicinity. The Dierks Blodgett Shipbuilding Company has recently sinned a con tract with the government to build ten 9000 ton steel ships. This contract will necessitate changes and additions to the present plant that will make it one of the largest shipyards In the en tire country. The work of extending the yard has already begun, and the 700 feet river front has been added to by the recent purchase of 1900 feet more, making a total frontage of a half mile and an average depth of about a quarter of a mile. The land recently acquired by the company rep resents an outlay of nearly $100,000. The ships to be built under the new contract will be the largest that have ever been built In the South. They will be 4tt feet over all, with a 64 foot beam. It will take 750 cars of steel, 125 cars of machinery, and mean the addition of about 2000 men to the company's pay roll. When the new yard is in full blast between 3000 and 3500 men will be employed In this yard alone. The steel will be shipped In by rail from the eastern and cen tral steel districts, for the purchase of which an office has been opened m Philadelphia. Approximately two years will he required to 1111 the con tract. The vessels will be built and fitted out completely before they leave here. The increased business of the firm has also made necessary the enlarg ment of its office force. The company has outgrown its Cedar street office here, and is clearing the ground at the corner of Magnolia and Laurel streets where will he erected a large, two story office building, 50 feet by 80 feet. The office force is rapidly being in creased by the addition of purchasing agent, rate men, etc. The work of budding the wooden ships already contracted for will con tinue, and new contracts for additional vessels of this kind will doubtless be signed when the present wooden ships contract is completed. Dierks Blodgett has given one ship to the government and expects to have an other ready very soon, with a third and a fourth to follow in a few weeks. Among the purchases of property made to enlarge the yard was that from Dr. W. F. Martin, ('. H. Bruce, V. E. Ros, Mrs. Meline, Henry Frentz, George Frentz, Chris. Brondom. A. J.

We have reached a time in our state and national life when no person should be Idle, Every consumer should be producing, and no man, or woman or child in our great state should be without his or her task. Truly, in this grave hour in the life of our common country, all should hear and heed the injunction: "Six days shalt thou labor."

' On the sixth day of July, in Gulf port, there will take place a meeting the purpose of which will he to dis cuss and devise ways and means of completing the cultivation and harvest ing of the crops of this state and to keep In full operation all the essential war industries. The effective mobilization of the manpower of this nation for non-combatant occupation is just as important for the Winning of the war as the mil itary and naval organizations. Throughout the world, 28,000.000 men have been abruptly removed from the ranks of producers, while they con tinue to consume and destroy at a terrific rate. The task devolving upon those who remain at home has been greatly Increased in order lo fill up this tremendous gap In production power. We can't send (lour and bread to our boys across the sea if the wheat and corn in our fields rot for lack of harvesters. It Is the patriotic duty of every man and hoy to lend his strength at this time of labor shortage to help swell the wheat tonnage export ed to our Allies. It is the purpose of the metings an nounced by the Governor to insure the maximum output both In the produc tion of crops and in the essential war industries in order that our lighting forces will not be less effective for want of food, munitions, or ships. II is up to us to do our all here wbih our boys face the tiring line over there. W.S.S. How much money could you raise by economy by sacrifice by borrowing, to save your home from passing in to other hands? How much money could you raise to bring back to health J and save the life of some strickened member of your family?
