Full Text

The spring announcement of Mr. W. F. Herman, general passenger agent of the Cleveland & Buffalo Transit Co., is as gay as the millinery of the season, and with striking appropriateness it is flowery in every sense of the word. The line's magnificent new steamer CITY OF ERIE is represented resting upon a bed of roses, while below is the welcome announcement that the C. & B. fleet "the flower of the lake marine" again blossoms forth with regular trips. For the time being sailings will be made from Cleveland at 8 o'clock and from Buffalo at 9 o'clock each evening, except Sunday. and after May 28 the service will be resumed every day in the week, permitting of the popular excursion trips to Cleveland and Niagara Falls.
