The Maritime History of the Great Lakes

Texas - The sailors have all gone from this vicinity. The last to go were Fred Dennis and John Turk. It is a great disappointment to a number of our young men to have the life saving destroyed just at a time when they expected to commence their season's work. They had made no calculations to sail. Three of them have gone. It is not definitely known yet how soon a new station will be erected.

Here and There - Capt. Chapman informs us that there was a special inspector of Life Saving Stations at Texas last week, and that he said he should recommend to the government the speedy erection of a station on the site of the old one. A life boat has been sent there.
