p.4 In an article on lake yachting Outing, of New York, remarks: "Canada, too, has a strong club in the venerable city of Kingston, noted for its good sailors. Yachting all along the Canadian shore is fashionable and consequently flourishing. What fashion approves thrives. Were it the correct thing to own a yellow dog, we would have yellow dog clubs in every hamlet, each with a waiting list a yard long."
