p.2 Rescued - Yesterday afternoon while the steambarge Mary Ann was coming up the canal from Ottawa, one of the hands noticed something black in the water. The captain immediately left the barge he was towing and went over to the place where it was. On arriving at the place they found two young men clinging to a stump and on picking them up it was found that they, with another young man, had gone out fishing in a sail boat on the canal and had run on a stump and stove in the bottom of the boat which immediately filled with water. Two of them took hold of the stump while the other held on to the boat which floated to land.
