      Detroit. - The tug STRANGER, which was burned two years ago at Trenton, and sunk at Grosse Isle bridge, was sold at United States Marshal's sale Monday. If the engine and boiler of the tug are not resting on the bottom they will be nearly as good as when the tug burned. The STRANGER was owned by Captain J. LaFramboise. Captain W.H. Stodard bought the tug STRANGER for $265.
