Ogdensburg News: Captain Lyon, Ogdensburg, now has the distinction of possessing the fastest yacht in the world. The Carmencita has never been distanced on the St. Lawrence, nor has its records ever been equaled. One of the best runs made by this trim Ogdensburg boat during this season was one of twenty-five miles in one hour and thirteen minutes. It has set a fast pace for the St. Lawrence and the boat builder who succeeds in producing a yacht which will run by the Carmencita will have placed in the water a boat which will win for him a reputation.

p.5 Yacht Club Awards - the yacht club regatta committee presented awards.

Incidents Of The Day - The steamer Ceylon from upper lake ports is unloading timber at Garden Island.
