p.8 Incidents Of The Day - Nineteen steel frames for Bajus' new passenger boat were raised yesterday. It is expected that the steamer will be ready for launching in April.

Yachting Information - R. Davis, shipbuilder, has sold the little steamer Carlteton (which has been owned by the Rev. O. Gezner, of Milton Island), to G.M. Beecher, of Brockville. The price was $600. The steamer will be used to run from Brockville to the St. Lawrence Park, as the travel on that part of the river is increasing rapidly. The str. Island Queen, built here last winter, runs on the same route during the summer months and is doing an excellent trade.

Dr. Clark's handsome little keel yacht is nearly completed at Davis' yard, and will likely be taken to Rockwood next week. It is expected she will be an excellent cruiser as well as a fast boat, especially in rough water, as there is no doubt of her heavy weather sailing qualities.

Grain Warehouse And The Western Trade - letter to editor about missed opportunity 15 years ago to build grain warehouse; another opportunity has come.
