Full Text

The hull of the old car ferry MICHIGAN, now lying in Windsor was bought by J.M. Jones monday for some Detroit parties. Her upper work and guards will be torn off, and she will be converted into a first class tow barge. She will then be the largest of her craft on the lakes being 284 ft. over all, 42 ft. beam and 14 ft. in hold. Her carrying capacity will be 80,000 cubic feet of timber or 1,500,000 ft. of lumber. She will be housed in fore and aft, and 3 masts will be placed in her each 90 ft. long. The work of reconstruction will be done this winter.
