win rertalnly pr. ve the most powerfJ exDoneat of the Great Lakes ever cjh!i5h"d, whilf? as a tourist ffulde it is
unriva!.d, as it Doth interests and instructs. Address E. B. WHITCOMB, DETROIT, MiCH.





''i In \^} 'I t^l ft^Ss; '\X I^ presenting this little

pamphlet, the ^s-riter
assumes that the public,
or at least that portion of it that goes from
home during the summer months, is well
educated to the efficacy of vacations, and will not waste
the limited space at his command by useless homilies on
that over-written subject. Instead, it is intended to tell,
in a fair and impassible manner, of the delights of a lake trip,
and, by means of practical descriptions and detailed informa-
tion of the company's routes, aid the prospective tourist in his
selections.

Travel on the water may truthfully be called the acme of
delight, pleasing, as it does, more generally than any other
source of amusement, the extremes of all classes and tempera-
ments. Again, while it gently stimulates that zest for adven-
ture, so inherent in every American bosom, it accomplishes its
main purpose by overcoming the weariness or ennui occasioned
by the hot weather and enabling humanity to make the most
out of a short resting spell. It is hard to determine from which
conditions these results spring; the new and novel life, whereby
the over-wrought brain is diverted in spite of itself to insignifi-
cant matters involving little or no mental exertion, the life-
gfiving ozone distilled by the tremendous expanse of air and
water penetrated, the constant unrolling of those grand beauties
of nature so beneficial to every temperament, or the enforced
absence from all suggestions of business or household ; they
can invariably be depended on to do their work, however.

The invalid, especially if suffering from hay- fever or bron-
chial affections, may be equally certain of beneficial results.
Mackinac and Petoskey are so celebrated as sanitariums for
ihcr^c iUcUu.uii.s that we shaii not sound fheu" praises here. It
is not so well known, but assuredly a fact, that the wonderful
• "*^. purity of atmosphere to which these resorts owe their reputa-

tion, gives to the lake voyage the same curative properties, and the sufferer may
embark ^\'ith certainty of being so benefited in the outset that his trip wiU be thor-
oughly enjoyable.

SOLID COMFORT EN ROUTE

IS an expression fuU of meaning to the experienced traveler; suggesting that
a pleasant journey may have much to do with subsequent enjovments. The
company has cousiderf^i it so, ;t;:d always siiapi.'S its poiicv su as to anticioate
every want of its patrons. Started in i^fo with the parent route between Detroit
and Cleveland, its capital now exceeds a miiUon dolhirs, and it owns a deet o^

five steamers, the largest, swift-
est and most luxurious on fresh
waters. The companj' builds
none but steel vessels of the
strongest pattern, thus secur-
ing, vAth the addition of suffi-
cient watertight compartments,
practical indestructibility.

While all the newest marine
ideas of real merit are invari-
ably made use of. the policy of >
the management is well defined __- -

m the uniformity of general de- , ;■ ^-j- ;
sign. The steamers are roomy [■ : v.- ;
iide-wheelers, propelled by the
Clyde patterned feathering wheels, thereby
developing a marvelous speed without the
slightest jar or noise. Their forward and after saloons, '-
of solid mahogany, are magnificently appointed and
tastefully decorated, and their rooms and parlors replete
with wire and hair mattresses, Pullman blankets, electric
lights, etc. The lower saloons are devoted to dining halls,
v,hich entirely separate the culinary departments from the "" main cabins. The
cuisine, which is equal to that of any first-class hotel, includes all the luxuries of
the season, and the price charged barely meets the outlay. In fact, it may not be
egotistical to say that the Detroit and Cleveland Steam Navigation Co. offers to
persons of fastidious tastes the only solid satisfaction to be found in inland travel.

THE LAKE ERIE DIVISION.

BETWEEN Detroit and Cleveland may be called the main stem of the
company's lines. Operated between two large cities, a sufficiently steady
patronage is received to waiTant the best of service, and to this end two mam-
moth sister ships have just been built. Their extraordinary size and grandeur has
placed the route in the front rank of that comparatively small array of trunk lines
to which travelers of experience look forward with pleasant anticipations. We may
describe the new City of Detroit, the latest addition, as being 300 feet long by 7?
feet wide and 16 feet molded depth, with hull divided into nine water-tight com-
partments. The boilers are four in number, and carr\' no lbs. of steam. The
engine is a compound beam of 2700 horse-power. The grand saloon is of solid
mahogany, and contains a double tier of state-rooms connected bv a hrond ga'lery.
it: is 24U loci in length, auu i:s dome rises 20 feet overhead. There are over 14c
state-rooms and parlors, each lighted by an electric lamp. The City of Cleveland
is similar in every respect. A steamer leaves either city late in the evening and
"Arrives at her destination long before breakfast, making connections with all arriving
and departing trains, and form.ing by far the shortest and cheapest as well as the
most delightful route between many far distant cities. Steady travelers, usually con-
fined to the hot, dusty, noisy rail car. always avail themselves of the charming quiet,
cool fresh air and luxury of a full night's rest afforded by this water route. The
Sunday night trips, from June to September, are very popular and have proved a
^eat convenience.

Passengers intending; 10 cuntinuo their voyage on the steamers of the Lake
Huron Division may so plan their departure from Cleveland as to make direct
connections at Detroit, or have a day for sight-seeing. The Tuesday or Thursday

to depart, while the Friday or Sunday steamer will

_ liecessitate a stay in Detroit till evening. In either case the

Lake Huron steamer will be found at the Company's dock on

C^ the arrival of the Lake Erie steamer, and passengers may

at once transfer to and take breakfast on the former, which

they can make their home.

Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and intending to take the Lake
Huron steamer the next morning, may at once proceed on board
and occupy their state-rooms free of extra charge, thus becoming
settled down and in a position to enjoy, as a spectator, the excit-
ing scenes incident to departure the next day.

THE LAKE HURON DIVISION

EXTENDS from Detroit to Mackinac Island on the Straits of Mackinac, a
distance of 350 miles, mostly through Lake Huron. From Detroit to Port
Huron, at the foot of the lal-:e, the scenery is most charming, embracing
the headwaters of the Detroit River, the placid Lake St. Clair, the far-famed
Government ship canal, the famous St. Clair Flats fishing and shooting ground and
the majestic St. Clair River. From Port Huron, all suggestion of land disappears on
the starboard bow, and only shows faintly on the port or American side. Occasionally,
when the steamer approaches a way port, the passengers have time to gather some
ideas of the characteristics and occupations of the inhabitants of this purely lumber
region, but for the nnjst part of the twenty-four hours spent on Lake Huron, they
will experience tiie sensation of being in midlake.

Considerable interest attaches to many way ports because of their note as
camping or resorting spots. At St. Clair or Port Huron clubs are constantly located
from July to September, and at Oscoda, Alpena, Cheboygan and St. Ignace bodies,
of hardy men may frequently be seen embarking or debarking. Those leaving the
steamer are making for some inland lake or stream; the others need naught but the
troijhJcs of their ski:i to -v-ll >:<: :/■_;:• ■.v;i.:-'_:r3. _.•.::- u;;r;n^ the preceding two weeks.
In fact, the whole of the country surrounding Mackinac offers endless attractions to
the adventurous. Well-stocked rivers and lakes abound, and the interminable forest
Is still overrun with furred and feathered creatures.

After touching at Mackinac, the steamers cross to the freight terminus of the
route at St. Ignace. This occupies from four to six hours, and those who wish to
return at once can. without laying over, see considerable of the main points of interest
at the famous National Park, if they engage one of the charioteers for a drive.

This delightful round trip of 920 miles from Cleveland or 700 miles from Detroit
occupies 4'< days from the former or 2 - ^ days from the latter point. It costs but a
trifle more than f4.'vj per day all told, and at that price is most emphaticallv within
the reach of all. Vou caniv*:. go ar.yv.-liere and compass so much enjovrnent and solid

the scenery is varied and attractive, and there is ample time for a good look at
every interesting object,

THE COST OF A ROUND TRIP

CANNOT be intelligently shown without some explanation. By the company's
advanced system, meals and berths are not included in the price of a ticket,
and patrons are at liberty to provide for themselves if they so desire. Berths
are in rooms, and cost Sr.oo for the upper or $1.50 for the lower, on each steamer,
no matter if the trip be one or two nights. The whole room accommodates three
persons and costs $2.50. Meals cost 50 cents each and may be estimated by the
time card. These expenses are invariable, except for children under five, when the
meals are 25 cents. Our table of costs is not guaranteed, but the figures are more
