Full Text

The EMILY P. WEED, now being built at Bay City, will have an electric search light attached to the pilot house, which will be the first of its kind on a lake boat. The Edison people claim that it will disclose a buoy fully a quarter of a mile off on the darkest night, and can be made to penetrate a dense fog to the distance of 1/2 a mile.
