THE BOSS CANOE.--On Tuesday last Mr. John Nugent, druggist, of this village, brought home with him from Lindsay a very handsome canoe, made by the well-known builder, Mr. Patrick Doris, who says that he believes it to be the best he ever turned out, and that not even the most bloated aristocrat in the county town can boast of owning a better. Mr. Nugent's purchase, which is called the Dolphin, is built of choice cedar and measures 18 feet in length by 35 inches breadth of beam, and is furnished with sculls and outriggers. It is painted a lively green with a gold stripe, and cost (stripe included) about $40. Mr. Nugent and Mr. Doris confidently expect that it will "walk the water like a thing of life," and no doubt the former, who has had a roomy and substantial boat house erected at the edge of Cameron Lake, will have many an hour's sport and exercise in the Dolphin, with before business commences or when spells of simultaneous wellness on the part of the community reduce the demand for drugs and medicines to a minimum.
