REBUILT STEAMER AS GOOD AS NEW.
      The steamer RIVERTON, owned by the Matthews interests of Toronto, which is now here with grain from Ft. William, was formerly the L. C. WALDO of Detroit. She was swept ashore near Copper Harbor, last season, and was left neglected for a long time a total construction loss. For a time no one wanted her, and she was finally bid in by the Matthews people who had rebuilt and fitted her up as good as new.
