p.1 Sale of the Steamer Unique - at Ogdensburg.

p.2

At Davis' Shipyard.

Last week was very satisfactory to Davis & Sons, shipbuilders. On Tuesday they sold a triple expansion engine and water tube boiler for $1,500. On Wednesday they contracted with James L. Lombard, Kansas City, Mo., to build a steam yacht 45 x 8 1/2 x 4, with a compound engine and water tube boiler, to cost $2,200 and to be ready by June 15th. On Thursday they received an order from H. Robinson, Muskoka, for a water tube boiler, to cost $600.

There are now forty-two men working at the ship yard. A new steam yacht for George Forman is nearly completed, its cost being $3,000. The new passenger steamer for the Cornwall oil company is about half planked, and the deck beams are all in. The tug being built for James Predergast, Cornwall, is planked, and is being sealed up inside. These latter two boats will be floated about March 1st.
