Jennings and family re- turned to their Island home Saturday. They spent a portion of their time in the mountains, and then visited some of the Southern California cities. John H. Beesley, manager of the Catalina Country Club, and Mrs. Bees- ley, were among the southbound pas- sengers on the steamship Catalina on Friday last. Mr. Chas. H. Smith our genial and industrious business manager left for the mainland Sunday for a two weeks vacation--if he can stay away from the Islander office so long! Before leaving Avalon he said something about visit- ing friends in San Francisco and his old-home town. Stmday's steamship Catalina carried many island visitors, among whom was a party comprising Mr. and Mrs. Win. Goodall bf Santa Barbara, Mr. and Mrs. S. C. Carr, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Hall, of Santa Cruz, Bert Cramer and Thomas Shore of Los Angeles. All were delighted with Avalon and re- gretted their inability to remain long- er in Avalon. Mr. and Mrs. I. Shelly of Ocean Park, who are spending a month at Catalina, made the long hike to the Isthmus Wednesday. They were seven hours covering the twenty-five miles. Remaining at the Isthmus all night, they returned on the Betty O. Thurs- day. During the homeward trip all on board obtained a fine view of the dirgible Sbenandoah as it sailed by northward. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Burgess and fanfily are yacationing on the main- land for two weeks. They expect to visit a number of pleasure resorts by auto before returning to Avalon. Mr. Burgess is an expert driver, as most of the Island residents know because during the past summer he has "chaf- feured" the metropolitan newspapers every morning to many subscribers without receiving a single complaint. Mr. W. H. Mead brought a party of friends to Avalon Saturday on his yacht Idol Ours. Those enjoying the Meads' hospitality were Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand. Vinge, Jr., and daughter Nordine, Mr. and Mrs. George Weber, all of Los Angeles, Howard Hangste- fer of Detroit, Clarence Hinton of Fresno and Miss Lucile Mead, The entire party returned to the mainland Monday afternoon after a most de- lightful outing. Miss Lucile Mead re- turned to Los Angeles to resume her studies at the University of Southern California Dr. R. V. Baker returned Friday from a brief trip to Los Angeles. R. J. Cope with his side partner Tom Richards come into the bay on Monday, on board the Cope cruiser, Patricia, for an indefinite stay. Mr. and Mrs. F. V. Scott of Los Angeles made a flying visit to Avalon Thursday. Mr. Scott left Saturday for Mexico to look after some nfining in- terests he has there. Guests at the Tuna Club include F. H. Reed, A. C. Brode, H. J. Mallen, George L. Pollitz, H. G. Chaffee, A. M. Andrews, Dr. Albert Soiland, Ray Dawson, and Dwight Whiting. A. C. Brode is having extensive ce- ment work done around his residence on the hillside before the rains come. During the past summer Mr. Brode has entertained a lot of his friends at his lovely home here in Avalon, and that is not all, we shall sure see a tot of this genial gentleman during the winter, as he, like many others, realize what a lovely place Avalon is for eli- mate all the rear round. The First Annual Exposition of the Pasadena District Council of Boy Scouts of America is being held at the Carmeltia Gardens House, in Pasadena, this week. It opened last Saturday, and will continue until next Saturday, October 25th. The exhibits include pictures, drawings, knots, flags, pen- nants, cups, coins, stamps, post cards, minerals, first aid, signaling, tracking, trailing, fire building, cooking, compass, use of knife and axe, stars, plants, trees, birds, animals, and many other subjects of interest. The editor and Mrs. Windle arrived home Sunday after traveling almost 4000 miles by auto. The only reason why we make this announcement is to establish an alabi for not answering our last month's correspondence. On our desk (and on the floor) are several hundred unopened letters--the accu- mulation of thirty days growth! -Good nite! But, have patience, dear corres- pondents-just wait and we will have them all ANSWERED before we start to receive Christmas cards. We thank you. At a cost not to exceed $130 Mr. George E. Aull, it is reported, has in- vented a new type of cow-catcher for his special Essex Six automobile. It seems that while going north a couple of weeks ago'toward Vancouver, B. C., with Mrs. Aull in his "new machine, Mr. Aull came into contact with a cow (so we're told) hence the new inven- tion by our famous local marine engi- neer. Only a few days previous, the editor passed over the same spot near where George invented the cow-catch- er. A few miles "up the road" we did a lot of dodging to escape contact with a logging train. Now we are puzzled with the following problem on our re- turn to Avalon: If one cow-catcher costs $130, what would a logging train catcher cost? George and the Mrs. have not returned home yet, so our problem can only be answered at a later' date. Life as we call it, is nothing but the edge of the boundless ocean of exist- ence when it comes upon soundings. ---O. W. Holmes. Life is before you, not earthly life alone, but life--a thread running thru the warp of eternity.--J. G. Holland. Watch the world come to Catalina.
