p.8 Handsome Yacht Here - The schooner yacht Priscilla, owned by Commodore George H. Worthington, Cleveland, O., rated as one of the finest pleasure crafts on the great lakes, passed down this morning on her way to Montreal. The yacht arrived in the harbor on Monday afternoon and spent the night here. The owner and a large party of friends were on board.

The schooner, which cost $130,000, was designed by Curry & Smith, New York, the same firm which designed George H. Gooderham's schooner. The furnishings also cost a small fortune. She carries four life boats and a naptha launch, which is used as a tender, and also an auxiliary gasoline engine, used sometimes in place of the sails. A crew of twelve men has the big schooner in charge.
