p.2 A Very Successful Season - The str. Hero went up the Bay of Quinte this afternoon on her 193rd and last trip of the season. She will return from Deseronto and lay up here this evening. The year has been most successful. No mishaps have occurred and the boat has made good connections at all points. She has probably done more runnng than any other steamer on inland waters. Facts gleaned prove that she is worthy of the name of Hero. From April 19th until today she ran 34,200 miles and made over 6,650 stops. In performing this service the wheel made over 6,491,000 revolutions. Captain Craig, Purser Nicholson, Engineer McCaul and Steward Moreland should feel gratified at the result of their labors.

p.3 Incidents Of The Day - Capt. Davis, Gananoque, has sold the yacht Ruby to Messrs. Chas. Stewart and D. Bradley, Lansdowne. Consideration $300.

Capt. Davis, of Gananoque, was in town yesterday after a new steam yacht, just completed for him at R. Davis' shipyard. He is very well pleased with the model and workmanship on her.
