p.1 Bought Steamer - Toronto, Jan. 8th - The steamer Tadousac, owned by John Waldie and A.A. Wright, has been sold to the Northern Navigation company for $150,000. The navigation company will place the boat on the grain and package freight route to some port from Port Arthur and Fort William and some other port (sic). The steamer was built in 1903 by the Bertram Engine company, and is valued for insurance purposes at $125,000. She registers 2359 gross tons.

p.2 The Harbor Is Clear - The harbor is free of ice, this morning, from Richardsons' elevator to Nine Mile Point, the bay is clear of ice. The heavy north-east wind, last night, did the trick and piled the ice up on the shore of Wolfe Island. The steamer Pierrepont and the island ferry will now be enabled to make their trips, and boats may yet run as late as February 2nd, the date that navigation closed last year.

p.7 Cape Vincent, Jan. 5th - Capt. Harvey Howard, who has been in command of the steamer Rutland for the past season, has returned to his home in this village.

p.8 Incidents of the Day - Last night Capt. Thomas Donnelly lectured to the marine school on "Rules of the Road." There was a large attendance.

Left For Cape Vincent - After a lapse of nearly three weeks the connection with the Cape by water was again started this morning. The Pierrepont left at nine o'clock for Cape Vincent with about twenty-five passengers and a large quantity of freight.
