MIDDLE RANCH WATER HERE! Now, you can DRINK from the local water system! In their usual quiet way, the officials of the Santa Catalina Island Company one day last week switched the Middle Ranch water into the city mains, just to see if the Ava- lonites would notice the difference. Some did! Particularly, those who were using the regular water for busi- ness purposes. The Middle Ranch water is soft and palatable. Of course the job has been completed on sched- ule time; yes, fifteen days ahead of that said time, which was June. 15th. Nobody got a chance to celebrate the history-makinK occasion, when Avalon got its first water from Middle Ranch over the new half-million dollar water system. The passing of the "water wagon" will be an inspiration for. many poeti- cal thoughts during the coming sum- mer. ". +The Pavilion building looks very ~neat in its coat of fresh paint.

Subscribe now-- per year. a free-gratis present of the rod and the fish to anyone, but the Major wax- ed eloquently satrical of my being 'bea- ten by a poor fish,' so I gritted my teeth and did as I was told. "It was rather rough by this time, and we were a long way front the Is- land. In fact, I began to wonder if I should live to see it again! It did seem at times as though I could not gain an inch of line, though I put every ounce of strength that I had trying to lift that fish. "It was a heart-straining moment when gaffing time came at last, and the Major took hold of wire leader, I still do not know how he did it, but he made a sudden, quick reach down into the water, jerked his right arm back.. 'I've got him! Lend me a hand to get him on board,' was his only remark. Little had I dreamed of the huge pro- portions of the fish until he lay in the boat, and I suppose that there is not a happier man than I in this whole wide world." With Mr. Sellers on the Mable F. were Messrs. A. D. Gall and E. C. Woodward, also of Los Angeles. The latter two gentlemen are all "pepped up" about tuna fishing, and are com- ing over in a few days to sally forth again in the Mable F. and try their luck. Mr. J. N. Stewart, vice-president and general passenger agent for the Santa Catalina Island Company and the Wilmington Transportation Com- pany, has recently completed a ten- day trip through Imperial Valley in the interests of passenger travel to the Island during the next three months. Another trip is planned for this week to San Jacinto Valley, after which the entire efforts of Mr. Stewart's "boost- er club" will be centered on local bus- iness. Several million pieces of Cata- lina literature have been given out by the company this spring under' the supervision of Mr. Stewart. "Wd are going to have record crowds this sum- mer. Decoration Day revealed to us the necessity of having the new steam- ship Catalina in operation by July ls[," he said. Price's Confectionery is to be re- opened this evening at 5 o'clock, in its new location, at the corner of Crescent and Catalina avenues, Dinner will be served from 5 to 8. Mr. and Mrs. Price need no introduction to Avalon- ites or regular visitors to Catalina, and we expect that they will build up a fine business.
