Sand Beach.---On Thursday the 24th., when the schooner H.C. WINSLOW was outside the harbor and making for shelter, a sailor named Frank Fuller, was knocked overboard by the main boom. Lumber and lath were thrown overboard to him, but all efforts to save him failed, as he sank immediately and never came to the surface. The parents of the man live at Jeddo, St. Clair County, Mich. He was about 5 feet 10 inches tall, and was a heavily built man. When drowned he had on a mackinaw shirt and overcoat and long rubber boots.
