of 1917 geougi3 p Tulloch notary Public my commission expires Vav poll i 1941 by Herbert editorial about the Middle of August the Herald asked Herbert e Varnum to about a boat trip he arid or m by Smith arid Hugh Miles of this City were about to make frown Erie to Points in Canada to be joined at Toronto by mrs Smith and mrs Miles he agreed to do so and within a week or two after his rely Rev submitted his copy it was handed to where the primary election Campaign was at its height and was put away so carefully that when search was made for it later it could hot be found just a Day or two ago it was in the exact place where it had been so carefully placed we feel this explanation necessary to account for the lapse of time Between the writing and the publication in to Way however does the delay in publication de tract from or Varnum interest ing narrative the question i have had to answer most often about my recent cruise in the Idylene is whether i got sea sick fortunately we Only had about two hours of rough weather and none of us had a touch seasickness for the Benefit of those who Are not acquainted with the boat i shall give a description of it the Idylene is a 36mi foot Cabin Cruiser powered by a 140 h p Peerless motor or m l Smith built it in his garage in 1929 most of the1 boat is mahogany even the Hull which is painted White Trie ribs braces and keel Are Oak Start ing with the Bow there is a 150gallon tank for storing water then a Hatch in which the life preserver and Anchor Are stored the first room is a toilet room in which there is running hot and cold water and a space for hang ing clothes then there is the Cabin with seats running Lengthwise the backs of which pull up making two double deck Beds then comes the Kitchenette consist ing of a Prothe Gas cooking stove a sink a table for cooking and an ice Box the dining table is in the Center Between the seats with sides that fold Down Between meals tills r room has about eight lockers in which Are stored clothes food and other things this Cabin is ventilated by portholes and a Back of this room is the enclosed dec House the windows of which have screens in this i room is the steering wheel Compass and con Trolson the boat and also a wide Flat space for charts Backof the deck House is a Small open deck the lifer boat or Dinghy was strapped on top of the dec House we used that to go fishing the boat has a Fine radio electric lights and running hot and cold water a charcoal strove provided heat in the Cabin during the cold nights i Hope i have described the Cabin Cruiser sufficiently to show you that the boat was Well equipped for live incl the Fco double berths provided sleeping quarters for four and the fifth person slept on a folding cot in the dec House two other questions i have been asked is How much gasoline the boat used and How fast it would go the boat weighed about seven tons loaded and would make approximately two Miles on a gallon of gasoline at the rate of ten Miles per hour which was the Speed we went most of the time the boat is capable of fifteen Miles per hour but that is not economical defying superstition we started our trip on Friday the thirteenth of August leaving the Erie yacht club at g p m and tying up outside the Harbor behind a Hook at the end of the Peninsula As we went through the Harbor Entrance we informed the coast guard that we would not be Back the next morning we arose at 4 and after breakfast pulled up Anchor and set out across Lake Erie for port Colbourne taking a Northeast by North course the water was pretty Choppy and the water dashed up Over the Forward deck male ing it necessary to use a Windshield wiper this let up after about two hours so that the balance of our cruising was in a Light sea this was relatively easy travelling for All but the helmsman who had to watch the Compass As the Waves had a tendency to throw the boat off the course he also had to watch the water for fishermen nets which were marked by red bombers or steel buoys we saw a half dozen fishing tugs and probably a dozen Lake freighters about 10 Oclock we caught sight of the on Tario Shore of Lake Erie and gradually caught up to a Coal freighter which we followed into port Colbourne arriving there about noon a distance of 62 Miles we entered the first lock of the Wei land canal at Humberstone and there paid our fees of for going through the locks this lock dropped us about four feet we then had Clear sailing across the isthmus to thou old where seven locks dropped us to the level of Lake Ontario each one of these seven locks dropped us approximately forty six and on half feet this was a novel experience but became rather tiresome before we had gone through the last lock the freighter which we had for Lowed into the canal went through the locks with us the length of the locks were 820 feet so there was plenty of room for both boats upon entering the locks we threw Bow and Stern lines to men who attached them to piers we held on to these lines which were 1qo feet Long and when the water was Down to the next level the men threw the lines Down to us we then had to Coil up the ropes for the next descent the latest Welland canal was opened in 1931 and seems to have every mod Ern conceivable thing to protect the boats going through each lock had double Gates in addition to guard Gates preventing the boats going in and out until they were lifted each lock had red and Green lights like traffic signal lights and you could go in and out of the locks Only on a Green Light the Panal was built to accommodate boats of 25foot draft the Jast Welland canal is the fourth the first one being started in 1824 As a private Enterprise we arrived at port Weller at Trie Ontario end of the Cana 8 Oclock in the evening eight hours is consid ered the average time forgoing through the canal while we were in the locks we got quite Friendly with the master of the freighter he said that if we wanted to follow him to Toronto we could we had intended to stay at port Weller Over night and proceed to to Ronto on sunday but the Lake was Calm so we thought it would probably be better to follow the freighter across tit when buying or to taking try Titus vice americas Sweet tooth a Hundred years ago sugar was so rare an expensive that the average american consumed Only ten Poi ids of i it a year according to the United states department of i Commerce today the consumption of sugar in the United states by every Man woman and child is around 100 pounds a year out of the mists of legendary lore we derive the idea that the Art of sugar making came from India and that the word from the persian language so much was sugar coveted that we Are told sugar was one of Columbus objectives when he set sail for the new world in 1492 the first american Cane sugar was made in Louisiana before the revolutionary War the making of beet sugar was begun in France in 1811 by Benjamin de Lessert and some time after 1847 its manufacture was introduced into America by the mormons of Utah today sugar is among our greater american industries according to the lates Bureau of census figures there Are Well Over 150 establishments engaged in processing and refining beet and Cane sugar the raw materials and supplies purchased by these sugar establishments Cost More than last year Titusville shares with All America i its use of sugar and the Titusville Trust company extends its Broad facilities to i Hose individuals and Busi Nesses thai Are interested in sugar production and Sale As Well Aslo the whole Zei Iship

the Shoie was a mass of lights and we could not distinguish any docks we noticed a Small sail boat cruising along so we pulled up behind and asked the skipper where we could tie up for the night he came on Board and we towed his boat into the Royal Canadian yacht club on Center Island facing the Mam part of Toronto Harbor this around Midnight and we were plenty tired after getting up at four that morning most of the boat owning members of the Royal Canadian yacht club Are interested in sail boats there were a great Many of them tied up in front of the yacht club and also in the Back Lagoon where we Weie tied up there Weie several other Jane can Cabin cruisers tied up there sunday morning our Friend took us for a Nde on his class c sail boat this is a medium size boat having a water line of 28 feet we went but into Lake Ontario a Little bit but twas too rough for Comfort so we came Back in Side the Harbor we were then glad that we had not waited to Cross Lake Ontario in the
