Those who would flee for a few hours from the racket, heat and smudge incident to the patriotic observance of the glorious Fourth, and in exchange therefor enjoy a delightful ride on Lake Erie, with the accompaniment of its exhilerating breezes, need only to make their way to the foot of Main St. at 10:00 A.M. or 2:00 P.M., or both, where they will find the elegant stm. PEARL in readiness for 3 hour excursion trips. There will be good music on board, and also refreshments, but no liquors whatever will be sold. Again in the evening the PEARL will make a moonlight excursion, leaving the wharf at 8:00 and returning at 11:00. The fare for each round trip will be but 50 cents.
