Masonic Excursion

The annual excursion of the St. George's Lodge of Freemen took place on Monday last, the 28th inst. on the steamer Silver Spray after eight o'clock. The members of the lodge marched down to the boat. About 150 excursionists were on board. The boat was decorated with flags.

After leaving Leith dancing was commenced and the boat stopped at Oxender where a few excursionists went on shore. Most of them remained on board until they arrived at Wiarton about 12 o'clock... a start homeward was made...the arrival of the boat at Owen Sound, about half past seven o'clock.

The Silver Spray is an excellent boat a fast sailor, and very steady. There is a great deal of room on deck and there would be no difficulty in accommodating a party of three or four hundred excursionists without undue comfort or crowding.
