Full Text

Racine.---The schooner ALVIN BRONSON, laden with railroad ties, and bound for Chicago, sprunk a leak in the lake Friday night. Her mainmast was carried away and part of her running gear. She came to anchor in the bay, and barely missed going on the beach. The life-saving crew and a tug managed to get her. She is part full of water. The crew of five men were completely exhausted.
