p.1 M.N. - Lake Yacht Racing Association -

p.4 The Old St. Lawrence - The old St. Lawrence, from which Capt. Collier expected to get enough oak to make 800 chairs, is hardly a profitable investment. The St. Lawrence was bought by the Mortons years ago when she was a worn out old gunboat, and was intended, when sunken, to be used as a jetty. At present she is only four feet under water, and, so far from requiring blowing up, her very decayed timbers can be pulled out, with near as little trouble as taking a stake from a ploughed field. The captain has ceased operations on her.

Accident On Gunn's Wharf - This morning, while loading the schr. Wawanosh with railway iron at Gunn's wharf, the grips broke, and a bar fell on Henry Burke, a boss shoveller from Portsmouth. The bar struck him first on the shoulder and back, and then fell on his foot, tearing the leather of his thick boot as if it were paper, and injuring the poor man's foot severely. Dr. Saunders attended to Mr. Burke's injuries, and he was conveyed to his home at Portsmouth in the ambulance wagon. The injury to his shoulder is not so bad as at first suupposed.
