Patrons of the searchlight excursions on the steamer St. Lawrence this season are pleased with the frequent variation in route which has been introduced by the new commander, Capt. C.H. Kendell.

Capt. Kendell was born at Clayton, N.Y., and is thoroughly familiar with the river and its many intricate channels. His father, A.S. Kendall, was a vesselman, having been captain of both river and lake craft. Though comparatively a young man, not much past forty, the new commander of the St. Lawrence is no stranger to summer visitors at the Thousand Islands. Last year he was first mate with Captain Estes and he has been in command of the Jessie Bain and of the Islander.

He is very unobtrusive and does not wear so much as a brass button to indicate his rank.
