A full-rigged sloop in the window of the Catalina Hardware Company has an attractive Christmas appearance. The survey for the new road from Black Jack mine to Banning's Beach was made last week by General Mana- ger D. M. Renton. It did look quite "Christmassy" last Tuesday evening, when most of the stores on Crescent avenue were deco- rated with colored lights and holiday presents. Services at St. Catherine's Catholic Church on Christmas Day 5, 8 and 10 o'clock. Everybody welcome. The choir will render special music at all the masses. One of the most attractive places on Crescent avenue this Christmas time is the "Waffle Shop" located nearly op- posite the pleasure pier. Read their ad on page three for a full program of the Christmas dinner "eats." Santa Claus invites everyone to meet him at seven o'clock tonight at the Community (Congregational) Church.

Dustin Farnum is telling this story about his brother Bill Farnum: "One day, "Dusty says, "we were trolling off Seal Rocks, and the tuna were so thick that they stopped the boat." "How did you get back to the Tuna Club ?" some one asked. "Get back!" exclaimed Dusty, "Well, my brother is noted for his big appe- tite, and he just ate his way through that school of fish." A very interesting feature of the service at the Conmmnity Church (Congregational) last Sunday evening was a description of her visit to the Holy Land by Mrs. M. E. Wood. Al- though eighty-seven years of age, Mrs. Wood did not use notes as she told m a clear, logical and interesting way of her visit many years ago to the land of the origin of Christmas. Her visit to that country was on the re- turn from a missionary tour of India with her husband, who was a promi- nent Methodist minister. Mrs. Wood. who has a home on Metropole avenue, first came to Catalina Island about a third of a century ago, and has loved the Magic Isle ever since. She has crossed the channel over one hundred times.
