there's no need to feel liko that as
T. D. Peebles, Henry, Tenn., proved.
"Six bottles of Electric Bitters," ho
writes, "did more to give me now

they help everybody. It's folly to

Ono of tho grandest and most
intorosting sido tripd out of Los An
geles is that of going over to Catalina
Island about 30 miles out in tho Pa
cific ocean. Street cars take you to
tho coast town of San Pedro where
steamer is taken for the ride on the
majestic and placid "old ocean". I
say "old ocean" for that seems to bo
a very stylish manner of referring to
the sea, but for the life of me, I can't
understand how the ocean is any old
er than the land, but I must be fash
ionable in spots at least, hence I refer
to tho Pacific as "old ocean." Did I
get sea sick? No! Did my friend
Rider? Voll, Eider being my "soul
mate" on this trip, it is not proper
that I should give away family secrets.
However, when he saw me eating a
ham sandwich, while tho steamer was
making that peculiarly upheaving
motion known as the corkscrew twist,
there was a mighty strange look upon
his classic features which I shall long
remember. Poor boy, how he did
suffer, and yet, how brave he was.
As tho steamer approached tho en
trance to Avalon bay there, opened
out to tho viow of the passengers a
most beautiful beech, with high hills
and mountains backing the little city
bv the sea. And it is another beauty
spot. Nature's artistic touch has left
its indelible print upon every rock
and tree and cliff and mountain, and
bit of sky and sea, until tho whole
scene is ono errand panorama of
beauty, and again thatv feeling of
prido comes up in tho heart of the
loyal American and makes him' feel
liko giving special praise for the noble
gift of being an American citizen.
The only effort being made by
anybody at this place, is that of
striving to have a good time, and do
ing nothing but being happy, and

Fishing? Oh, what joy. Every

the whole day in catching tho beau
tiful and gamy sea bass, baracuda,
yellow tail and hallibut. A big Jew
fish weighing 397 pounds had beon
pulled in just before our nrrival at
tho dock, and RiJor wanted tqbuy
and ship it homo as one of his own
catching, but I would not permit him
to practice such deception upon his
Wood county friends.
In the evening tho visitor is treated
to'a fine band concert in tho Roman
amphitheatre which is formed by a
small natural canon which has been

It is a thing of beauty, and one that
any lady would be proud to' own.
Everyone has had the desire to

Is a jewel that never depreciates in
