Full Text

p.4 Want A Lighthouse - R.R. Finkle, Bath, joint owner of the Middle Brother Island, in Bay of Quinte, has been to Ottawa, with a petition asking that a light house be erected on the island. He was ably assisted by Uriah Wilson M.P., Hon. George Kirkpatrick and Hon. Mackenzie Bowell. Mr. Finkle and C.L. Rogers have a lease of the island for a term of twenty-five years. The lighthouse is much needed as dangerous shoals abound in the vicinity, and accidents are of frequent occurrence.

p.8 Incidents Of The Day - The schr. H. Dudley is being got ready for service. Sailors were engaged today in mending her sails.

A. Knapp built two life boats for the str. Kathleen.
