Save Money On Flights

We Were Nearly Four Days In Making The Trip.

The line of boats of which the Lady Franklin is one, carries the mail at fifty dollars a trip.

During the boating season I believe the fare varies from seven to ten dollars to St. Paul.2 This season there have been two lines of boats running to Minnesota. All of them have made money fast; and next season many more boats will run. The "Northern Belle" is the best boat this season, and usually makes the trip up in two days. The advertised time is thirty hours.

[1 Three weeks after this trip the Lady Franklin was snagged, and became a total toss.]
