Our Mariners.

The Great Lake Sailor's Mission of the Upper Canada Tract Society is planning for an aggressive seasons' work in order that the thousands of men employed on the lakes during the season of navigation may be more efficiently cared for. Last season four missionaries gave their whole time to the work of ministering to the sailors and thousands of men were reached. On the Welland Canal, Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence river and the Georgian Bay its workers were stationed and its large and varied work carried on. This year, in addition to these points, the Lake Superior field will be occupied and plans are now being completed for sending its most experienced men to launch the work there and establish it on a firm basis.
