One of the readers of this paper, who is in Miami, Florida, writes: "I mailed Mr. ~ my extra copies of the Islander last evening, so this a. m. they wilt have their little bit o$ hea- ven, too." A cement bridge connecting the new drive back of Villa Park from Clemen- te avenue, has been constructed dur- ing the past week over the storm ditch. The Santa Catalina Island Company built the bridge. Two new Pierce-Arrow auto stages arrived here Tuesday, to be placed in the sight-seeing service for the Cata- lina Jaunting Car Company. As soon as the road to the Isthmus is open to general traffic, the new machines will be placed on Avalon to Isthmus run. If you are interested in the causes of your success and your failures, read the Catalina Islander. On page four of this issue there is an article about our silent forces. Next week we will put a little more "punch" behind the language. Mind "talks" to mind with its own signals. Do you know the signals of the "mind language ?" They have "shorthand" backed off the map! Almost every other day the freight barge from the mainlandarrives at Avalon carrying building supplies. One day last week it brought over a pump that weighed 26,000 pounds. The pump was taken to the Middle Ranch dam site, where it is now being installed for the fresh water project. With the "Catalina Goat" Charley Hammond pulled the heavy piece of machinery from the pier to the dam, a distance of twelve miles. The altitude at the Summit is 1600 feet.

Thank you. it t t t t LOVE By Major Lawrence Mott ORC--SIGNAL~USA Some ask how to define it, Then ponder, soberly, And write full reams about it, That are read--and wonderingly. Love is that thing within us That knows no space, nor years; That hath no pomp nor circumstance; That fails before no fears. That is strongest at the darkest hour; That sweetly finds its way Into the hearts of all mankind-- Do they but say it yea. Love helps the chap who stumbles; Love cheers him with a smile; Love light's the burden---heavy lo~d--- And makes this life worth while. Love sees the beauty in the flower; Love feels the kiss in the wind; Love sooths the bed'rid', sickness hour, Love is merciful and kind. Love knows no ill, or unclean thing; Love's lamp gleams clear and true; Love gathers in the hopeless-- And gives them hope anew. Love cherishes the weary; Love smooths this life's long trail; Love pours from the fount' of the strongest To steady the steps of the frail. Love has no end--no beginning; Love comes of divinity; Lov~ asks but a home at the hearthside Of YOU, and of YOU--and of me. Avalon, Catalina Island, California. THE HOME NEWSPAPER If there is anything in your town worth talking about, ten chances to one your newspaper had a hand in putting it there. If anybody beyond the walls of your burg ever learns that there is such a place as Three Corners it will be through the home paper. Every town gets its money's worth through the home newspapers. It's the wagon that carries all your goods to market. It ought to be kept in good repair. It will pay to grease it, paint it and keep its running gears in good shape and shelter. They are the guardians and defend- ers of every interest, the forerunners and poineers of every movement and 'the sturdy advocates of law and order. --Northern New York Press Associa- tion Bulletin. BUSINESS CALLS WRIGLEY EAST William Wrigley, Jr., owner of the Chicago Cubs and the Angles, left last week for Chicago, where pressure of business has called the chewing gum king : "Right now, I am sorry to say, [ live in Chicago and visit California," he said. "Soon I hope to be able tO live in California and visit Chicago." He expressed confidence in the abil- ity of the Cubs to fight it out to the last week for the National League flag, and said he was convinced that the Angles will be a serious contender in the Coast League. "He will re'turn to Los Angeles in four weeks to spend the spring. On the Flintridge golf course, J'ant/- ary 30, Fred Wright and Art Thomp- son had to play twenty-two holes be- fore defeating Everett Seaver and Pim Palmer. Catalina--"in all the world no trip like this." FURNACE INSTALLED AT CATALINA HOSPITAL Through the courtesy of Mr.William Wrigley Jr. and Mr. D. M. Renton of the Santa Catalina Island Compgmy, a very efficient two-burner and pilot type of gas furnace has been installed in the Catalina Hospital during the past week. "According to the reports of the hos- pital attaches, the installation has been a very successful one," said Mr. J. Benjamin, sales manager for the Ward Gas Floor Furnace. "The sealed fur- nace gives a clean, healthy, odorless heat, which is free from any of the poisonous carbon - monoxide fumes which frequently occur from a number of gas heaters. Dr. Baker is very much pleased with the new equipment. "[ am making arrangements to have Mr. Carl Carson of Metropole avenue handle the Ward Gas Floor Fftrnace, and a shipment of them will be re- ceived in Avalon during the coming week. In all probability the new Cat- alina Hospital will be equipped with the Ward furnaces." WRIGLEY ACTS AS FILM EXTRA The Los Angeles Examiner asserts that William Wrigley, Jr., has become a motion picture actor! That is, he became a film "extra" for a short time the other day when Frank Lloyd, producer-director, was making a picture on Catalina Island. The script of the play called for an actor to represent a merchant prince of the sixteeth century. Lloyd had no "extra" available to play the part. So he called on Wrigley and asked him to play it. The chewing gum magnate consented. Mrs. Wrigley was an interested spectator of her husband's histrionic attempt. Dressed in the robes of a wealthy merchant of 400 years ago, Wrigley played his role before the camera like a professional actor, ac- cording to friends who watched him. It was the first time the millionaire had appeared as an "extra" in motion pictures, and he enjoyed the experience greatly. WHALES (By Science Service) So many whales are now being killed off the coast of South Africa, that ap- peals have been made to the Union government to restrict their taking to the larger sized males. A total of 700 whales in a year were killed by com- panies operating out of South African ports and in the near-by waters. Whales are becoming scarcer and smaller as a result of unrestricted slaughter, and it is now proposed to prohibit the killing of females, and of all whales below a certain size, de- pendent upon the species.

THINK IT OVER THEN Thirty years ago eggs were dozen for 25c; butter, 10c per milk, 5c a quart; the butcher away liver, and treated the bologna; the hired girl received a week, and did the washing. did not powder and paint (in smoke, vote, play poker, wear ers, or shake the shimmie. Men wore whiskers and chewed tobacco, spit on the and cussed. Beer was 5c, lunch was free. Laborers hours a day, and never went strike. No tips were given to and the hat-check grafters known. A kerosene hanging a stereoscope in the parlor were uries. No one was ever operated apendicitis, or bought monkey Microbes were unheard of. ed to a good old age, and every walked miles to wish their Merry Christmas. NOW Today, everybody rides in biles or flies; plays golf; shoots plays the piano with their feet; to the movies nightly; smokes ettes ; drinks Ruckus juice ; H. C. of L. on the Democrats; goes to bed the same day they and they think they are wonderful time. These are the days of suffragel profiteering, excess taxes and bition, and if you think life is living, we wish you a pleasant mertime. Does advertising pay?
