The MASCOTT, a boat about as large as the NIAGARA, has been purchased from the Toledo owners and will be run between Buffalo and Fort Erie Grove. The purchase was made to accommodate the increased traffic between here and the Grove. The NIAGARA has been doing such a large business this summer, especially of late that many have had to wait 2 or 3 boats in going and coming.

      The Cleveland Plain Dealer of August 1st says: The double screw, steel hull prop. MASCOTTE of this port has been sold to the International Ferry Co. of Buffalo. The MASCOTTE is considered one of the best built and fastest boats on the lake. She is but a year old. The MASCOTTE leaves for Buffalo this evening

      The International Ferry Co. paid $20,000 for the MASCOTTE. This is considered a bargain by Buffalo tug and steam yacht owners. A more thoroughly equipped steamer than the MASCOTTE has never been put in the pleasure business at this end of the lake.
