GLADSTONE DASHED ON ROCKS.
      Owen Sound, Ont. Nov. 7. -- The tug GLADSTONE with a large scow, both owned by Pedwell & Lembke, sawmill owners of Lyon's head, broke from her moorings on the rocks and smashed to pieces. The tug CRAWFORD with a scow also broke loose, but was saved.

      WRECKED AT LYON'S HEAD.
In all likelihood the tug W.E.GLADSTONE, which went on the rocks at Lyon's head last Tuesday night, will prove a total wreck. The vessel, in company with the tug CRAWFORD, was on its way to meaford when the accident occurred. The tugs were each towing a barge, and the weather becoming extremely rough they tied up at the wharf at Lyon's head for shelter. The CRAWFORD held her moorings, but the W.E.GLADSTONE and the two barges broke adrift and were driven across the bay, all three going aground. The barges struck on a fairly good bottom and little difficulty will be experienced in saving them. The GLADSTONE, however, struck among boulders at a distance of not more than twenty feet from the shore Captain Rumley, who had charge of the tug, is of the opinion that it will be impossible to save the vessel.

      The above picture is that of the former steamer EASTNOR, which burned at her dock at Wiarton on Saturday morning last. She was owned by Mr. John Tackaberry, of Lion's head. This boat was built at Lion's head in 1909 by Messrs Pedwell & Lembke, the hull being entirely new, but the machinery of the tug GLADSTONE, which was burned at Lion's head, was placed in her, and was named the HENRY PEDWELL.-------part
