Full Text

The steamer Jay Gould came into Bay Mills (Lake Superior) with five feet of water in her hold. The first mate, Ben Lewis, was caught by a wave and washed off the deck during the storm. As the crew were throwing him lines and life preservers, another wave from the opposite direction caught him and landed him on the deck again with a crash. He was only bruised, but is completely unnerved by his miraculous escape from death.
