- Full Text
The propeller T.S. FAXTON, a stranger in these waters, was at the Detroit dry dock yesterday getting her engine repaired. She is on her way from Clayton to Chicago where she will engage in the excursion business. She is a trim craft of about the dimensions of the propeller RIVERSIDE, was built about two years ago at a cost of $32,000, and has just been sold to Chicago parties for $12,000. For her inches there is no prettier craft afloat.
