p.3 Wind Wafts - The bottled ships of Anderson the Swede, are the wonder of all.

Impossible To Get Her Off - Capt. Donnelly has just returned from Buffalo, where he had been called by the Phoenix Insurance Company to get off, if possible, the schr. Oades. The vessel had been driven ashore during one of the heavy gales last fall. The Captain found her so embedded in ice that as he informed the managers, "the Company hadn't money enough to rescue her." He will probably try what he can do with her in the Spring.

Railway Extension - owners of Prince Edward railway want to ship iron ore out of South Bay.

Vessel Sale - The schr. J.N. Carter has been sold by Messrs. Welbanks, Ellis & Co. to the Messrs. Dyment, of Barrie, for $8,000 cash. The Carter was injured last summer by a collision at Detroit and repaired here.

LIFE STATIONS

The subject of live stations along the Canadian coast has been revived as a result of the maritime bills being submitted for the consideration of the Dominion Parliament. Today, Capt. Donnelly, who was recently at Ottawa, stated that a life station was much needed at Presqu'Isle light. Had there been a life-boat there last fall every man on the wrecked schooner Garibaldi would have been saved. He met the Captain of that vessel in Toronto a few days ago and heard a harrowing account of his sufferings on the terrible night on which his mate perished and he and another were severely frost bitten. All the crew of the schooner Belle Sheridan might also have been saved had a life-saving crew bee convenient. Such facts before the Government should induce it during the coming season to do something towards the accomplishment of what is deemed by all mariners to be an absolute necessity.
