The splendid scenery along the Detroit Kiver and anioug the islands of Lake Erie make this trip one ot the most pleasant and attractive ones that can be taken. Most of the large crowd that accompanied the Company on its excursión to the same place last year are again anxious to join the excursión of next week. This excursión will be much more pleasant than the one of last year, on acocunt of having secured a larger and more commodioiis steamboat for the trip. Several hours will be Bpent at Put-in-Bay, giving an opportunity to visit the mauy places of interest. On the return trip the steamer will stop for an an hour at Grosse Isle, to enable the excursionista to witness the dress parade of the Third Regiment, which has its encampment there during the coming week. Fare for the round trip only $1.75, children 90 cents.
