Minnesota Tales

The Minneapolis Journal, July 11, 1895, p. 2


A Grand Affair Planned at 'Tonka for Tomorrow Night.

The moonlight excursion to be held tomorrow night, starting from the hotel, Lake park, promises to be entirely the event of the season in this particular manner of entertainment. The City of St. Louis is to be provided with mandolin and guitar orchestras, so that dancing or any other form of diversion will be possible to those participating in the after sun-down event.

The big steamer will leave the Lake Park hotel tomorrow night at 8 o'clock and make a tour of the lake, returning in time for the 11 p. m. trains for the city. All the Lake Park guests are going, and it is thought that there will be several hundred Minneapolitans in the party.
