      Capt. Inman, the enterprising owner and manager of the Inman tug Line of this city, has just added to his fleet a boat of more than ordinary importance it being no less than the stm. ASSIFRAGE (sic), built a year ago at Bay City by F.W. Wheeler. The boat is a fine excursion steamer capable of carrying 800 passengers and with stateroom accommodations for 100. She also has complete kitchen arrangements for dining large companies, and as a commodious and fine excursion steamer. Arragements are being made whereby excursions can be run here during the summer from interior cities with a turn around the lake on the ASSIFRAGE as a culmination of the trip.

      The new excursion stm. OSSIFRAGE will leave for Port Arthur and local points at noon Saturday. Capt. Inman purchased this beautiful boat, which is one of the fastest on the lakes, to supply the demand for a first class local excursion boat. She used to run last year between Cheboygan and Sault Ste. Marie. This is her first trip this season and the excursion should be well patronized as a very pleasant time is anticipated.
