The latest one is none other than "Sheriff" R. R. Veale, for many years sheriff of Contra Costa County, and in his boy- hood days resident of a suburb of Antioch, which was the boyhood home of the writer. Brot'ner Veale was a much beloved member of the Native Sons of the Golden West, being a member of General Winn Parlor No. 32, of Antioch--named after the gen- tleman who was instrumental in bring- ing about the organization in San Francisco of the Native Sons, July 11, 1875, which has since spread through- out the state. Sheriff Veale's genial disposition made him a friend of ev- ery person with whom he came in contact. The last time we saw him was at the recent Admission Day cel- ebration at Santa Monica. The poinsettias in various parts of Avalon are showing a splendid growth this season, giving promise of many large and beautiful blossoms during the next few months. o- The ladies of Avalon are likely to find something of interest in the new advertisements in this issue of The Catalina islander.

The meeting of the Club was enliv- ened by various fines handed out by members whose birthdays occurred in October. It was not so nmch be- cause 'their birthdays happened in that month as it was because the gentle- men at the bar were somewhat equiv- ocal in replying to questions pro- pounded by the judge. O" "RULE 38" Rule 38 of the State Board of Equalization says: "All retail licensees shall post in a conspicuous place on their licensed premises a printed sign of type not less than one-half inch in height and in size not less than llx14 inches, in form as follows: PATRONS ATTENTION Selling, giving away or delivering al- coholic beverages betweeu 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. is a misdemeanor.

Any minor who co:'sumes alcoholic beverages in any on-sale premises is guilty of a misdemeanor. B.y order of State Board of Equal- izatmn. The Catalina islander office has such cards for sale to parties who may require them. The following historical item is from the Los Angeles Express of twenty- five years ago--October 28, 1912: "Ap- plication has been made by the Mar- coni Wireless Telegraph Co. to the state railroad commission for permis- sion to institute a wireless night let- ter service between Santa Catalina Is- land and Los Angeles. The United W'ireless Co., now merged into the Marconi corporation, has maintained a commercial wireless service between Avalon and the mainland for several years. The night letter innovation will enable visitors at Catalina and citizens of Avalon to keep in closer touch with Los Angeles, and wireless messages to be forwarded to eastern points may be sent east from Avalon when the innovation is established." Would it not be a fine joke to find out who "soaped" up the windows about town Friday and Saturday nights, and have them remove the same ? Several palm trees along the beach front which have not been doing well, have been removed and will be re- placed with healthy trees. The Avaconlay Club gave a pot-luck dinner Monday evening to its mem- bers and the members of their fami- lies. They had a good time. A~ Parent-Teacher Association meet- ing was held at the high school Tues- day evening, which included a talk by Dr. James Houloose.

Goodland of Los Ange- les, who is in charge of the summer camp, was immediately notified and has joined in the search for the miss- ing man. o- THE PEACE OF LIFE (Reprinted from the Ripon Record) Selected by California Feature Service as October's '*Best Editorial of the Month" When Abraham Lincoln left his Illi- nois home for the White House, he left the peace of his life behind. He exchanged the friendship of simple people who loved him and were proud of him, for a burden ahnost beyond mortal strength, and finally for mar- tyrdom. And yet had he known for a certainty the outcome of his period of service, we may be sure that his great heart would not have failed nor his feet have faltered. For he would have realized that the chance had come for hint to win something great- er than happiness. One of the most splendid tidngs is calm and smooth in the lee Island.
