To Put On A Faster Boat.

Capt. Rothwell informs us that it is the intention of the Folgers to put a faster boat on the Gananoque-Kingston route next season. The Pierrepont is admirably adapted for the island ferry business, but lacking speed she has to leave here at such unearthly hours in order to get to the islands on time that many persons forego the pleasure of the trip by water rather than rise so early. The faster boat will be able to leave Gananoque at a reasonable hour and still do the ferry business. [Gananoque Reporter]

Will Build Another Yacht - Mr. Knopf to have new craft built this fall, between eighty and ninety feet long; Miltonia was destroyed when smokestack set fire to boathouse.
