The Yacht Mena - This well known and favorite second class yacht has been purchased from her former owner, Mr. Shaw, United States Consul at Toronto, by Messrs. Chaffey, Stewart and Makins, and brought over from Cape Vincent, where she has been stationed, to Kingston this week. The Mena won the first prize of her class at the regatta here last year, as well as several at the regattas up the lake. She was also the winning boat at Prescott this spring. Her good sailing qualities and well known character for speed, will make her purchase an acquisition to the yachts of Kington.
