p.2 Steamer Russell Sage Chartered - The steamer Russell Sage, of Ogdensburg, has been chartered to carry 2,000 cords of pulpwood from Quebec to Cleveland, at $3.75 a cord. She will make four trips in that trade.

p.6 At The Yacht Club - new pier being built eastward to foot of Simcoe St.

Will Run Reindeer.

Capt. Collier will not put a new steamer on the Bay of Quinte this coming season, as was contemplated last fall. The veteran mariner had about completed arrangements for a steamer to be built in Kingston, modelled somewhat after the steamer Aletha, only wider and of more beam, but his plans were changed. He is having the steamer Reindeer thoroughly overhauled at Deseronto. Her hull is being well looked after and her engines renewed, so that she will be in stout shape for the opening of navigation. Capt. Collier's many friends are glad to see him around again after an illness that set in last fall, continuing the greater part of the last three months. [Picton Gazette]
