Full Text

p.3 They Had To Jump Overboard - The steam barge Norman was burned in Prinyer's Cove on Friday night. The fire broke out about 11 p.m. while the crew were all asleep. They had just time to save themselves by jumping overboard. The crew lost all their clothing. The Norman was built on the Rideau Canal and valued at $5,000. Insured for $4,000 against fire. She was owned by Hazelton Hicks.

Here & There - The schr. Oliver Mowat has left Toronto with wheat for Cape Vincent.

The steamer Hero has been laid up. She has had a most successful season, and a profitable one too, we hope.

The prop. Canada sprung a leak near Port Colborne and the crew had difficulty in keeping her afloat. When repaired she proceeded on her way.
