NEW STEAMER. -- A small screw steamer to be called the MAID OF MIDLAND was brought up on the Northern railway last week and will be launched and fitted up here. It is owned by Mr. F.S. Darling, has accommodation for about 50 passengers and will run between Penetanguishene, Coldwater, Waubaushene, Victoria Harbour and Severn. ---- Bulletin

The tug MAID OF MIDLAND is being overhauled at Coldwater and will be rechristened. They say the village belle didn't like the idea of a mere tug being called the MAID OF MIDLAND, so to remove all causes of jealousy the boat's new name will be FRANCIS JANE. No village belle in the world could be jealous of anyone or anything owning that name.
