Rideau King and Queen Will Make Daily Trips.

[Smith's Falls World]

Capt. D. Noonan, manager of the Rideau Lakes Navigation company, was a caller at the World office.

In the course of a pleasant conversation the genial captain informed us that next season the Rideau Queen and the Rideau King, well-known steamers on the Rideau canal, would provide a daily service between Smith's Falls and Clayton, N.Y.

The steamers will leave here every morning at five o'clock, crossing at Jones' Falls, the incoming boat arriving here at eight o'clock.

Passengers can buy through tickets to any point, which will include transfer from train to boat. Special cheap return fares will be offered on certain days to Jones' Falls, and the intention is to give the summer tourist and camper on the Rideau Lakes a first class service, the steamers calling at all intermediate points both ways.

We can safely predict success for the enterprise and we have no doubt Capt. Noonan's scheme will meet with the hearty approval and support of our citizens.
