p.2 On A Cruise - The Brockville Enterprise says: "The yacht Laura, of Kingston, arrived at this port yesterday afternoon on a cruise. Her appearance is somewhat improved since her last visit." The Laura has been painted black, and has got a new cabin top on her, which makes her look much better than she did formerly.
The Cape Route - After returning from Cape Vincent last evening, the Maud crossed over to Channel Grove and took off the picnic party from Cape Vincent. She then went over to the Cape with them, and returned at a late hour. The Geneva took the Cape route this afternoon, instead of the Maud, which is getting a rest.
