A despatch from Parry Sound, dated Oct. 5th says Henry Gould of Parry Harbour, was drowned yesterday while attempting to kill a large brown bear, assisted by the crew of the tug Superior. It seems the bear was swimming in the sound just opposite Kilbear Point, when the tug gave chase...

The Penetang Herald says - Mr. Beck's new tug the Shawanaga, made a trial trip yesterday going a distance of about twenty miles. The boat was well built here, the machinery being furnished by the well known firm of Copp Bros & Barry of Hamilton, and the trip greatly was highly satisfactory. The action of the engines was splendid and a speed of about 12 miles per hour was reached. We congratulate Mr. Beck on now having one of the finest tugs on the lakes.
