Gulfport, September 22.  It has been and will continue to be the purpose of this paper during the next tVfplve months to stimulate the agricultural interests of Harrison Comity, so that when the gates of the Mississippi Centennial Exposition are onenfed for visitors from all parts of tie ctfuntry there may be a suitable tot of exhibits of different kinds on display from our home section to give à practical demonstration as to what tihe soil ôf this end of the State will produce.  Knowing the active and effective work that has been done along this line by the First National Bank of Gulfport in the past an interview was sought by a Heiald man with J. A. Bàndi, managing officer of that institution to ascertian what plans, if any, the bank had formulated for work of this character. It was learned from Mr. Bandi that, as usual, it was fully aîiva to this proposition, for, as he said, "We realize the necessity of our bank, as the leading institution of it's kind in this end of the State, to take an activé part in any move toward the improvement of our rural conditions and the promotion of our undeveloped resources. We already have under discussion with Mr. McCandliss, the County Agent, and our directors, cer-taitt'Tnethpds of rendering assistance to\farmers and live stock growers, which, if carried out, as we contemplate, will bring material and practical jrpsults. It is the purpose of Mr. McCandliss (as stated by him) to learn the names oif all farmers, as well as boys and girls of the different cooperative clubs and organizations of thè County., who are interested in raising and producing next season some one crop or thing on Harrison County larid that will be suitable for display at the Exposition or compete for a pa^-cmdferrangewith them to do so."  "r. Wnâi MheV stated, "To show you how thoroughly impressed .w 1 « are with thi* idèa, we have authorized Mr. McCandliss to announce at his diffèrent meetings throughout the county, that the FirSt National Bank stands rèad'y at all times to co-operate with him in this movement. We have agreed to furnish under his direction, seed for such crops as he may select to be grown for the purpose of exhibit or display at the Centennial Exposition. [ We will also lend assistance on the most remarkable terms and conditions to those Who wish to engage legitimately in iaising some kind of live stock, let it be cattle, hogs, or sheep/ for display purposes. In fact, you " may say for us, that when it comes to lending encouragement to thé tiller of the soil and the live stock raiser; we have a sympathetic ear that is alwfcys open, ready to listen to his petitions fof aid."

George County is preparing to build manv miles of gòod roads at the expense of the government as a result of'the relief fund that was appropriated-for the benèfit of the farmers who lhst their crops in . the hurricane of Jjulv 5.

The Wood Consolidated School at Lyman was opened Monday night with exercises that proved pleasing to a very large audience.  The program was opened with the song America, sung by the school children and which was followed with an invocation by Rev. J. R. Jones. A piano selection by three of Mrs. Bag-by's pupils proved very satisfying.  Prof. A. F. Houston introduced County Superintendent Wood who talked on the necessity of co-operation in school work if success were to be attained. At the conclusion of his remarks he introduced State Superintendent Bond who talked largely on the work of rural schools, showing the great possibilities of co-operative schools. Before closing he commended very highly the progress made along educational lines in "Harrison. County.  Supt. Bond was followed by J. J. Melvin, who also gave a short talk on consolidated schools. The program was brought to a close with an address by Prof. Houston.  Among the pleasing numbers on the program was a cornet colo by Prof. Bagby of Gulfport.  The Wood Consolidated School has eight teachers and has an eleven-grade course. Authorities on schools say it will compare favorably with any school in the state. Two large auto trucks are used in bringing the pupils to the school house.  TFE NATIONAL GAME  AMERICAN LEAGUE. Standing  Won. Lost.

Gulfport, September 22.  The officials of the Exposition have received a communication from tha Swiss Commissioner at the Panama California International Exposition at San Diego, Cal., requesting that space in an exhibit building be reserved for a comprehensive collective Swiss exhibit. Speaking of this exhibit, C. H. Osborne, director of exhibits, said it is one of the most interesting in the San Diego Exposition, containing, as it does, a remarkable display of the resources of that nation. A model Swiss chalet, complete in every detail, is one of the features of the exhibit.  The firm of Manion & Company of New Orleans has kindly offered to donate to Mississippi Centennial all of the plumbing fixtures that will be required to equip the emergency hos-pitaL.  Officials of the exposition will move tomorrow in the old Hewes residence on the Record addition, which will be used as an administration building until the new one is completed.  Swift Campaign in Dobrudja Province Ends In Repulse of Germans, Bulgarians and Turks.  London, September 21.  The German, Bulgarian and-Turkish troops under Field Marshal von Mack-ensen have been defeated in the Rumanian province of Dobruja, according to the official announcement from Bucharest. It is declared that the invaders have retired to the south and are burning villages in their retreat.  The great battle, which was the climax of von Mackensen's swift campaign in the Dobrudja district immediately after the declaration of war by Rumania, began on September 15, and ended, says Rumanian headquarters, on the 20th.  With reference to these operations Berlin merely says that "fighting in Dobrudja has come to a standstill."  Rumanians, Russians and Serbians were pitted against the invaders, strong reinforcements having been hurried to Dobrudja, when the operations under the noted German field marshal threatened to overwhelm a section of Rumania. A strong line to the north was fortified hastily and powerful forces were thrown out to (Continued on Second Page)  ■m  Pet .607 . .590-T .5,78 ¿547 .451 .437 .417 .386  SPENDING MONEY.  i Use sound sense in spending , money.

POLITICAL EXPERTS  Denials of Both Gov. B'-ibo and Representative Harrisdn Regarded as Non-Committal on Coast.  NO REASON IN THE WORLD WHY FORECASTS ARE WRONG  Mr. Harrison's Friends Think He Could Be Elected Governor Three Years Hence, If He Wants it—Gov. Bilbo is Popular on the Gulf Coast.  Gulfport, September 22.  The community was shocked this morning when it learned of an automobile accident thirty miles -from Jackson yesterday afternoon in which persons known in Gulfport were either killed or seriously injured.  The car was owned and driven by T. A. Chichester, a Hinds County planter, and was run into by an A. & V. train, at the crossing east of Smith's station, at 4:50 o'clock, and entirely demolished.  Reports state that the train stopped directly after the accident and physic cians were summoned from Edwards. All members oft he automobile party were unconscious and were taken in the baggage car to Vicksburg* atyd rushed to a hospital. Mr. CKicne^ts'r died from his injuries soon after the hospital was reached. His wife is not expected to live. Both of.her lower limbs are broken.  The dead: T. A. Chichester, aged 50 years.  The injured: Mrs. T. A. Chichester, one foot badly crushed; Miss Gertrude Chichester, 19, skull believed fractured; Miss Georgia Chichester, 12, back of neck injured; Miss Clemmie Colmery, 17, internally injured; Miss Ethlyn Luster, 16, both legs broken.  A telegram to Judge T. H. Barrett this morning stated that Miss Georgia Chicheser had died since the accident and Mrs. T. A. Chichester was at the point of death.  T. A. Chichester, who was a prominent citizen of Hinds County, was the first cousin of Mrs. Judge T. H, Barrett of this city. Mrs. Chichester is a sister of W. Robbi, well known in this city where he is a frequent visitor.  Mrs. Barrett will leave this afternoon for the scene of the accident if the condition of her young son, Ash-ton, who is ill, will permit.  It is supposed that Mr. Chichester was on the way from Edwards to h.is home. The train, which was making about forty miles an hour when the accident occurred, was. in charge of Engineer Stone and Conductor Mc-Elroy. Immediately after the accident the train stopped and crew and passengers administered what aid they could to the injured until assistance could be ^obtained from Edwards.  Term Cost $3,518.63 and 287 Cases Were Disposed of—More Sentences.  Gulfport, September 22.  Circuit Court was adjourned this afternoon after remaining in session continuously since September 4.  During the session 287 cases were disposed of, which is said to have been mòre than during any previous term of court in this county. There remains on the docket 49 old cases and 33 new ones. The term of court cost the county $3,518.63.  Of the cost of the court which is set down at $3,518.63, $800 of this, amount will be gotten back in fines, forfeitures, jury taxes and state witness fees, which will bring the net cost down to $2,718.63.  Before adjourning the following sentences were imposed :  City of Pass Christian vs. Joe Pagana, profanity; $25 and 30 days in city jaiL The jail sentence was suspended.  State vs. Robert Durant, assault and battery; $100.  State vs. John Williams, petit larceny; $25.  State vs. Calvin Slay, petit larcens* $25.  State vs. Chauncey Evans, seduction; $100.  The grand jury returned 58 indictments.  Biloxi, Sept. 22.  Although Congressman B. P. Harrison has not yet admitted or denied the report emanating at Washington to the effect that he might be a gubernatorial candidate three years hence, the fact remains that on the gulf coasTas well as in other parts of the state he is regarded as splendid material for that office and among his friends on the gulf Coast there ii> a general impression that before many years he will be going higher in politics.  Representative Harrison, mingling freely and genially with "home folks" in Biloxi yesterday, was asked as to the various rumors afloat as to his political ambitions. To the rather personal questions aimed at him, he did not answer pointblanck just what he intended to do, but left the impression that there might be somthing in the report which has been current on the gulf coast for a number of months and which was given impetus by a story emanating from Washington on August 30 to the effect that he and Governor Theodore G. Bilbo had bee» "fixing slates" in Washington.  "PAT" NON-COMMITTAL.  Mr. Harrison, in a word, was more or less non-committal, admitting that at the present time he had more important business to command his personal attention than his own political ambitions.  Many persons have been of the impression that Mr. Harrison will be a candidate for the senate two years hence, but the most important prog-Uost ;  cation now is that he has his eye on the governor's chair.  When Gov. Bilbo was in Washington th^ latter part of August he and Mr. Harrison were together a great deal and while there is nothing of importance in the Jfgct^that friends jn ^ distant city are to""6e seeril in eaoh-«^th-gr's company, the~Washington political o6servors made much of it and gave fresh impetus to the rumor current on the coast for months that Gov. Bilbo would aspire to represent this district in congress and that Mr. Harrison would not interfere, but would seek something better.  BILB(TDOESN'T COMMIT HIMSELF.  Seemingly this report has been "knocked into a cocked hat" by a denial offered by Gov. Bilbo at Jackson last Wednesday.  Gov. Bilbo said: "The Washington story is news to me. I was in Washington on business for the state of Mississippi, in connection with the Mississippi Centennial ExpoSiti&tl." He did not say, however; that he did not intend to run for congress. What he did say was:  "I am already a resident of Mr. Harrison's district. My home is there my farm is there and I vote there, and there is nothing in the way if I should desire to run for congress. I have no such present intention—in fact, it is too early to be sayilig what I am going to do three years hence."  Mark you, Gov. Bilbo sdys "there is nothing in the way if I should desire  to run for congress......It is : too  earlv to be saying what I am gbing to do three years hence."  Mr. Bilbo said that he would vote for Mr. Vardaman against any living man, so, apparently, the feature of the contest is eliminated. Mr. Harrison, apparently, will not enter the arena against Senator Vardaman, whom he has always held in high esteem, nor will Gov. Bilbo, for many years an ally of the senator, seek to oust him.  But-  And here is the most interesting phase of the situation, narrowing down to the very great possibility, even probability, that he will step down out of the way of Bilbo in this district while the governor will give leeway for the gubernatorial office. Of course, there is the present Lieutenant-Governor Lee M. Kussell to be reckoned with, but there are political ways that sometimes change such things, and, at least for prognostication purposes, it is not advisable just now to consider this phase of the situation.  Gov. Bilbo is stronger in South Mississippi than any other part of the state. He could more easily get to Washington from this district than any other, especially with the influence of the brilliant greatly liked "Pg,t" Harrison. Besides, Gov. Bilbo has not been asleep to his opportunities. He came down to BJloxi this summer and established his "summer capital" here. He bought land out; at Beauvoir and proposes to build a handsome residence there and it is also stated that when -the mansion will have been constructed he will spend most of his time on the coast. Hq likes the gulf coast people and> the .gulf coast people like him. Moreover, he has not forgotten to build his political fences while here. He has strengthened himself with various political! factions on the coast—factions that heretofore have opposed him. For instance, take that little incident of the appointments bv the Mississippi oyster Commission. He entered the breach there and threw liis influence to certain candidate that are certain to prove of value to him should he (Continued on Sixth Page)  MISSISSIPPI CENTENNIAL EXPOSITION  Opens December 10  1917  ORDER CENTENNIAL HERALDS NOW  Every regular Herald subscriber will be sent a complimentary copy of the Centennial Number of The Daily Herald, but those desiring extra copies are advised to send The Herald a remittance now to cover cost of extra number desired to insure getting them.

Biloxi, September 21.  Biloxi had her patriotic celebrations in the long ago, as is shown by a clipping in the possession of Mrs. L. clipping in the possession of Mrs. L. Chisolm, Division avenue and La-meuse street. The item in question was sent to the New Orleans Picayune on July 5, 1860, and speaks of a Fourth of July celebration in Biloxi. in which the Biloxi Rifles took an important part. The article is as follows:  The Fourth in Biloxi.  (Correspondence of the Picayune.)  Biloxi, July 5, 1860.  Messrs. Editors:—The aniversary of the Sabbath of our country's independence was celebrated in our pleasant town with a spirit of commendable patriotism. The morning dawned in all the glorious etffugence of our sea-coast summer weather, and as the sun, that golden type of freedom, arose from out the crimson East, he Seemed to usher in the day with more than common lustre.  The two thousand five hundred citizens of Biloxi were aroused early from their slumbers by the reveille of the trumpeter of the Biloxi Rifle Guard, calling the gallant members of this volunteer company to prepare for parade. Very soon all were astir, and our cool and quite town wore a martial abearance, and seemed decidedly on a warfooting.  At 3 o'clock a. m., the members of the above named company, numbering forty-four good and true men, assembled at the armory hall, on La-meuse street.  Then B. R. G., though not very strong in numbers, is composed of young, able and good looking men, and when on parade in the uniform of the company, which is similar to that worn by the chivalrous Mississippi Rifles in Mexico, look remarkably well and soldier like. By the way, many of the meh belonging to this corps have seen service, both in Mexico and elsewhere among whom we may mention J. D. Howard, the captain of the guprds, a man who is every inch a soldier.  After drill, in the parade room of the armory, the company filed down Lameuse, and preceded by fife and drum, marched through several of our streets, the nlace selected for target shooting, which was on the beach, immediately overlooking the bay.  The appearance of the men and officers on the Fourth was very cre-itable to the company. Every map was in his place, his accoutrements bright and soldier like, indicating discipline and order, and his tout ensemble unexceptionable. The list of officers stood as follows: Captain, J. D. Howard; 2d lieutenant, Jas. Blythe; acting as 1st lieutenant pro tem; James Maycock, 2nd lieutenant pro tem; Caleb Burton, 3rd lieutenant pro tem; Ensign F. Callivat; 1st sergeant, G. W. Andrews; 2d sergeant, L. B. Holley; 3rd sergeant, A. Marsane; 4th Sergeant, J. L. Baltz; 1st cornoral, R. Fowler; 2d, John Darcy; 3d, C. Mott; 4th, Mr. Knapp.  The ensign of this company was the subject of universal admiration. It was presented by the ladies of Biloxi, last spring, to the Biloxi Rifle Guards, by the hands of the accomplished Miss Clemens, who it is said, delivered a most appropriate and elegant speech upon the occasion. It is a flag of the finest silk, representing the stars and stripes, with the CContinued on Third Page)  First National Bank of Biloxi Issue« Comparative Statement, Showing -, Business Increase.  1   DEPOSITS OF THE BANK ■  INCREASE DURING YEAH  Surplus and Profits Also Show Nocmif Increase During Present Year Over That of 1915—Biff Increase in AS-sets.
