      The masts of the new steamer MOHEGAN have been stepped and they give her a handsome appearance. The work upon her cabin is rapidly nearing completion. It is expected that she will prove one of the largest, if not the largest wooden carriers of lumber on the lakes. Together with her consort, the MINGOE, the tow will move 2,400,000 feet of lumber. She has all the latest improvements including steam steering gear. -- Marine City.
