MILLS STILL AGROUND.
And Nothing Had Been Done Up To Noon Toward Releasing Her.
Nothing was done today toward releasing the steamer David W. Mills, of Cleveland, which went hard aground on Ford Shoals early yesterday morning when the lake was covered with smoke which made it impossible to see any distance.
The boat is resting comfortably and unless a northwest wind springs up, is in no danger. Captain Mat Langan stated today that the owners were undecided as to what they were going to do.
The announcement of the boat being ashore attracted large numbers to the beach to witness her plight.
Captain Peterson, of Cleveland, owner of the boat, arrived shortly after noon and went to the wreck with the life saving crew, to see if anything could be done. He reported only a small insurance on the boat.
