      A careful record kept on board the PEWAUKEE shows that since the Manistee Iron Works compounded her engine there has been a wonderful saving in the fuel bills. It formerly required 28 to 30 tons of coal to make the round trip between Sturgeon Bay and Chicago, against 24 cords of slabs so far this season. The coal costs on an average of $3.75 per ton, making upward of $ 100, while the slabs are $1.25 a cord, making a difference of $70 in the fuel bill each trip. Aside from this the steamer makes better time than heretofore.- Sturgeon Bay Advocate.
