EXCURSION TO OWEN SOUND - The excursion of the Manitou Lodge of A. F. & A. M. . of Collingwood. On Monday last, was a perfect success in so far as numbers were concerned. A special train left Barrie for Collingwood at 7 a.m. and carried with it some 150 Masons and their friends, which number was increased to 400 ere the train reached its destination. When this crowd embarked on board the steamer Chicora, the party all told totted up nearly 1200. The band of the Simcoe Foresters enlivened the trip to the Sound, and a quadrille band furnished those inclined to dance with moving music. After enjoying themselves for some hours at Owen Sound... the excursionists turned their faces homeward, and arrived at Collingwood about eleven o'clock - those from Barrie got here about half-past one on Tuesday morning. In a pecuniary sense the trip was a ...test of the sea-going qualities of the steamer Chicora.
