NEW ANCHOR LINE BOAT READY FOR SERVICE
      Because of the rapid growth of its business on the Great Lakes, the Erie & Western Transportation Company, the Lake Line of the Pennsylvania Railroad, has just added another new passenger steamer to its fleet. This boat, the OCTORARA, will be placed in regular service Saturday. The OCTORARA is a sister ship of the well-known passenger ships TIONESTA and JUNIATA, but has many additional improvements.
