- Full Text
The new prop. JOHN PRIDGEON JR., of the Sarnia & Chicago, G.T. Line has had placed over her pilot-house one of the most appropriate and beautiful ornaments ever carried by a lake steamer. It consists of a vase, of a size proportioned to its position, and elaborately carved, in which a lot of leaves, ears of corn are promiscuously thrown. The leaves and corn are painted their natural color and the vase gilded. The ornament, at its high elevation is both showy and tasty, and reflects credit on the workman who produced it. The letter "P" is painted on each side of the vase.
