WRIGLEY WORKS CATALINA MINE .CblICAGO, Nov. 14.--An old silver ~frne has been found on William lgley's famous Catalina Island, the California coast, and already :x~q carloads of ore, realizing $6500 to ':teh carload, have been shipped to ~a,! t'rancisco Mr. Wrigley said today. , qcrc wall be no rush across the aUntry as in '49, however, as Mr. Vfigley owns all the island, including e mineral rights. 'It looks like a big thing," said Mr. rigley, "and I'm going to develop it; ot that I care so nmch for the profits, out simply to develop the natural re- ~.OUrces. The mine is about twenty- ~e miles from my home and about " ,t~0, feet up in the hills." When found he said the only tun- el was covered with dense under- rush. The mine has probably been ost for sixty years, h~e added. O./. wrcnee "See my new pants!" He comes to me With eyes aglow and manly stride; He's just as pleased as he can be; He fairly scintillates with pride. "An' here's some pockets in 'em too!" He yells, then struts across the floor That I may have a better view-- May see him aft as well as fore. And as I watch I think how swift The years have flown since I was three, When she whose hands designed his gift Was fashioning such clothes for me, Oh. how I wish I were a lad Of three tonight and had a chance To march again up to my dad And yell at him, "See my new pants!" O, LA V R.~,MC~, WE EXPECT TOO MUCH Most of us expect too much of those about us; they are too busy with themselves to bestow upon us the ap- preciation or the notice we think we deserve. But this truth has a very comforting side. If our services and successes do not win thanks or praise neither do our slips and failures at- tract half the attention we fear. We have only "to pick ourselves up and go on again as best we may, and the rest of. the world will pay little heed. So long as we are honestly trying to do our best, we nlay be sure that those about us are not likely to mis- judge us greatly, either by over or un- der estixnation. Tell your Merchant that you saw his ad in the Catalina Islander, and that he is making your shopping problems easier by his advertising. "I have always taken mY fish easy on light tackle," said Jones. "Yes, I've heard of these safe crack- ers sand-papering their fingers." WOMAN TAXIDERMIST PROVING HER ABILITY STRAND THEATRE NOTES Every Avalonite will be interested in the following note, which the Islander received one day last week from "Bill" Quinn, the genial general manager of United Theatres : "Wish to advise you that we have succeeded in securing the big Cosmo- politan Production, "Janice Meredith," which is now playing Los Angeles, for the Thanksgiving Day attraction for Avalon. This picture has been se- cured at considerable expense to us, but in booking this attraction we are Simldy trying to carry out our promise made to your people that we were go- ing to give them the best obtainable. 1 trust that the people of Avalon will appreciate our efforts and respond ac- cordingly." This great picture continues to draw crowded houses in the metropolis, and Mrs. Emily E. Parker, the oialy wo- man fish taxidermist in the world, has just completed her work on several game fish specimens that were landed at Catalina during the past summer. The specimens were shipped to their owners last week. "I feel very proud of the results I have obtained with the broadbill swordfish caught by Mr. Harry J. Mallen," said Mrs. Parker. "This fish weighed 528 pounds, and measured 12 feet 9 inches in length. It is undoubt- edly the largest fish of its kind ever taken by an angler. "Other specimens were those caught by George C. Thomas, Jr., a marlin swordfish weighing 216 pounds; Mr. Harry Tregartben, marlin weight 165 pounds; Mr. R. E. Norton Rosemont, Pennsylvania, a marlin swordfish weighing 155 pounds; Mr. W. A. Lombard, I,os Angeles, marlin swordfish, weight 122 pounds; Mrs. L. P. Streeter, Chicago, marlin sword- fish, weight 124 pounds;Mr. Jack Kendall, Pasadena, marlin swordfish, weight 260 pounds; Mr. J. Frank Meyer, Chicago, a tuna; Mr. G. J. Tucket, a tuna; Mrs. L. P. Streeter, a white sea bass; Mr. William Wrigley, lr., a 65-pound opah, and Mr. Joe Cameron a large sunfish. "Since the death of nay husband, which occurred last July at the begin- ning of the fishing season, I have been kept very busy," continued Mrs. Park- er. "For many years we had worked together in onr little business. The toughest job I have tackled this year is the big hammer-head shark which was brought to gaff by Mr. S. M. Douglass of Eleho, Wisconsin. '/his specimen weighed 235 ponnds, and is probably the most perfect shark of the hammer-head variety in existence for exhibition purposes. The specimen was mounted life-size and I was suc- cessful in extracting all of the oil from the skin." TELL US A TRUE STORY I)uring the past week we have mail- ed out several hundred postcards to anglers who have hmded game fish at Catalina. l?erhaps we shall receive some interesting stories on :~a ang- ling.
