p.5 Boat Livery at the Mills - William Davidson and Robert J. Bennett have opened a boat livery at Connell's Grove, near Kingston Mills, which will fill a long felt want for the people who are fond of fishing. Below the Mills there is excellent bass, pike and perch fishing, but only those who were acquainted with some of the farmers could get boats to indulge in their favorite pastime. No doubt the lovers of the sport will show their appreciation of the enterprise by patronizing the new boat livery. Boats, fishing and camping outfits can be secured at reasonable rates.

Dry Dock Formally Transferred - Messrs. Chapleau and Whitney of the Public Works Department, Ottawa, were in the city today and formally handed the dock over to the Kingston Shipbuilding Co.

He sold the Chickadee to Sir Richard about ten years ago and has since built two other yachts.

p.7 Washburn - Albert Randall, who has been repairing his father's steam barge took it to Brewer's Mills, Monday, to have a new wheel put in. Capt. Randall has the contract of carrying coal for the brickyard. Mr. Chisholm intends turning out the "real article" this summer.
