      . . . . .

      The prop. St. LAWRENCE, says the Detroit Free Press, collided with a sail
vessel on Thursday near Point au Pelee, receiving considerable damage. She was
cut down to the water's edge, her smoke pipe torn away and her engine badly
injured. She was towed up to Malden and will probably go into dry dock for
repairs.
