A Raft For Restful Holiday - Hiram A. Calvin, one of the pioneers in the rafting business on the St. Lawrence, was introduced on the Exchange today, by William Stewart. Mr. Calvin, of Garden Island, who is ex-M.P. for Frontenac, has been rafting since the early sixties, and his father conducted a business of the same sort before him. For a restful holiday with no opportunity of receiving urgent telegrams or other matters which are likely to stir the blood and make one think of the strife in the business world, Mr. Calvin said that he would recommend a trip on a raft down the St. Lawrence.
