"We need an addition to the schoc,1, a new bridge at the top of Mari[la avenue, thirty more homes on Sunshine Terrace, ten miles of new road in Avalon canyon and at the rear of the Public Utilities plant, and a new club house for tlie Country Club.' The new golf course will be put in as soon as possible. "Then we want to complete the road from Hamilton's Beach to White's Landing. This road has been mapped to follow the shore line and will con- nect Avalon with the new pier at Vghite's Landing The 20,000,000 gal- lon reservoir at the Summit will be Started after the rains have softened! the ground. "We have been taking out so tnuch Ore at the Black Jack mine that we have decided to purchase a mill. Mr. R.enton will probably erect tl~e mill near the new pier at W.hite's Landing. This will facilitate our mining opera- tions. We have more than 400 tons of ore at the pier now, ,~aiting shipment to San Francisco" Then, with a wave of Iris hand, Mr. "Wrigley walked up the gangplank of the steamship Avalon and joined Mrs. Wrigley and their party. "See you all agiain about Christmas time," he shout- ed from the bridge as the vessel left the pier. Everyone has been so busy in Ava- lon during the past three months that Very little attention had been given to the work which has been going on ouside the city limits.' Acting on Mr. Vqrigley's suggestion that we take a trip over to Middle Ranch and to V(hite's Landing, such a trip was tak- en last Sunday with Mr. C. H. Ham- mond. Three months ago a trip was made from Middle Ranch to Black J'ack ~[ine and White's Landing. At that time the steam shovel was working along the road from the mine to Mid- dle Ranch. Sunday, the shovel was almost at the Summit, at an elevation of 1700 feet. Most of the way from the ranch houses to the Summit the roadway is thirty feet in width.

"Apparently that young woman thought her criticisms were 'smart.' They were so smart that she would have felt highly indignant had some- one said the same words about the young lady herself. Of course, the young woman didn't have sufficient experience to realize that the criticism W l p as fixing a few subconscious thoughts in her own mind. And that at some time in her life, as a matter of habit, she'd probably attempt to do the same things, if given an opportun- ity, because she had fixed pictures in her subconscious mind." "Yes, the human mind is a peculiar piece of mechanism. It's a great imi- tator.

Emerson told us years ago that, 'Man is part and parcel of every one he meets.' " "The person who resents criticism should remember that others may re- sent their criticisms.
