      THE MERRITT AND PEORIA ASHORE
They have also been having foggy weather on Lake Ontario. The T.R. MERRITT, timber laden, went ashore at Snake Island Wednesday night. She is just between the two buoys, and on pretty hard. She belongs to Captain Neelon and is not insured. The propeller PEORIA, with freight and passengers, ran ashore on a flat rock near Superior Shoal. She got off without serious damage.

PERSIA or PEORIA. Since there does not appear to have been a propeller PEORIA on the lakes, we will assume that PERSIA is correct.
