Down The St. Lawrence

The steamyacht Visgar is anxious for a race with the Ramona, of the Thousand Island steamboat company.

Commutation tickets, a feature of the steamboat service on the river for the past two years, have proven so popular that the Thousand Island company will again put them on sale. The tickets are good for 100 miles and give cottagers a much reduced rate from place to place. The steamer New York begins her river trips on the 29th, and the steamer New Island Wanderer on July 1st.

The freight business has greatly exceeded that of last year, showing that the islands are being developed more and more each season.
