      . . . . .

      The schooner TWIN BROTHERS cleared for Sheboygan yesterday afternoon, but was caught in the gale before reaching that port, and had to return in a leaking condition. She stove a hole in her port side by pounding against the south pier in the Straight Cut, and, filling with water, she soon capsized and sunk. She now lies on her broadside in the river, just inside of the Straight Cut. The crew escaped by clinging to the pier. The TWIN BROTHERS was an old vessel, and not probably worth more than $1,000 or $1,500. - - - Milwaukee Sentinel, March 13
