Home From Clayton - Howard S. Folger has closed his office at Clayton and returned to Kingston for the winter months. He says that the season is about over at the island resorts; everybody is homeward bound. The steamers of the "White Squadron" enjoyed a profitable season. Tourist traffic was heavier than usual, but the ordinary travel was light, but on the average the steamers did splendidly. The steamers Empire State and America are here to lay up; the Island Wanderer is on the Cape Vincent route. The St. Lawrence will arrive up Sunday evening, to lay up and the Ramona and Islander will remain in commission until October 1st.

p.5 Capt. McDougall's Views - (of whaleback fame) at a luncheon which followed the launching of the Huronic at Collingwood, thinks it is impossible to carry grain from upper lakes ports across the Atlantic in the same bottoms.

p.6 Incidents of the Day - The steamer Caspian will winter at Sorel, and will receive extensive improvements.
