      The OSSIFRAGE has been returned to F.W. Wheeler, of Bay City, her original owner. She left for her old port at 2:15 this afternoon. The loss of this popular excursion boat will be felt not a little in Duluth as she was the only boat of her class at the head of the lakes.
      But Commodore Inman has contracted with Capt. Wheeler to build two entirely new and powerful tugs, one of which will be ready this season, to be added to the Inman fleet. He is also about putting in at Duluth a large and complete wrecking outfit of steam pumps, diving appliances and lighters, and will devote all his time to towing and wrecking. The $30,000 invested in the OSSIFRAGE could be used to greater advantage in the proposed improvements and additions to the tug line.
