This is the day, you and Mary Jane and me, Take the trip that Catalina Island to see. We'll drive the Chevrolet to the Terminal Hotel, Lambert says we can leave it right there just as well. After Mary Jane had powdered her face and nose, Samantha had put on her best Sunday clothes. I locked up the house, put the key under the mat, Samantha had put out some milk for our pet cat Manager Fleming was at the dock to see us start right, The big boat was ready, a mighty pretty sight. Thirty-five hundred horsepower they said this boat had, If it pulled like old Dobbin, they'd need it right bad. This boat was built from pennies for Wriglcy's gum spent. That gum is sure good, folks can't save for rent. The Catalina sailed out to the "Magic Isle," ~8,'e had a good time, I brought nly fish in a sack. We landed and went to St. Catherine's for lunch, Our crowd they sure was a mighty fine bunch. While Samantha and Mary Jane with the glass bottom boat were struck, I had a mind that at fishing to try my luck, I fished for a while, my patience most failed, When all of a sudden I knew I had a whale. I landed him at last, we put him on the scales, He lacked just a LITTLE of weighing like a whale. On the big white boat we made the trip back, \~vre had agood time, I brought my fish in a rack. I knew that Lou Johnson would never believe ME, If I didn't have the fish for him to see. "In all the world ,no trip like this," Folks, this is one that you nmst never miss. In All the World NO Trip Like This. --Wilmington Journal. BICYCLES MUST CARRY LIGHTS All bicycles mu'st be eqnil)ped.with lamps. Section 105 of the motor ve- hicle act provides that such lamps shall be "visible under normal atmos- pheric conditions at least 300 feet in the direction toward which such bicy- cle is facing." The law also requires a red light or a reflex nfirror at the rear of each bicycle. A serious acci- (lent accured recently in Los Angeles because a bicycle rider failed to. have the proper lights. More than 2,5()0,0(~0 radio sets were manufactured and sold in this country (luring the past three years. There are 560 broadcasting stations in opera- tion in the United States, and some 16,000 amateur transmitters sending and receiving messages by radio. And nobody ever says a word about Cat- alina 4n 1902, hexing the first connner- cial radio station in the world. Catalina will give you the rest of your life. Come to Catalina.
