In connection with it will be a garden and arbors where visitors or others may enjoy the pic- nic hmches they may bring with them without charge. We understand that Miss Edythe Stone and Miss Florence Vehrop will have charge of the stand, and that it will be opened this week- end. The breaking of a water main on Metropole avenue one day last week required the closing of a portion of that thoroughfare for several days. ALL DRESSED UP AND SOME- WHERE TO GO ON CATALINA The Crescent avenue office of the Catalina Jaunting Car Company, which operates the various sight-seeing trips in Avalon and vicinity, has been paint- ed and prepared for summer activities. An item that attracts much attention from visitors is an interesting collec- tion of photographs ntounted in glass- covered panels about the exterior of the office. These present views of in- terest not only in Avalon, but along the stage line, at the Istlmms, Cata- lina Harbor, Little Harbor, Eagle's Nest, Middle Ranch, etc. A trip on the' campany's machines, either in the city or further inland, helps one to under- stand better the wonderful all-the-year attractions of Catalina Island. This enterprising company is operated un- der the direction of Mr. I-t. Eichbaum of Venice, with Carl E. Miller as the Avalon manager. \Vork of opening the alley between Sumner and Catalina avenues is nearly completed. You are always welcome to come in and look over our stock and prices.
