Description
Full Text

The big barge WAHNAPITAE [sic] is pretty heavy on spelling, but when it comes to draft, she is very light. She left Buffalo Monday in tow of the tug CHAMPION with 1,200 tons of coal, drawing only six feet eight forward and seven feet ten aft. After returning with one load of lumber, she will carry two loads of telegraph poles from Georgian Bay to Monroe, Michigan.
