UNPLEASANT LAKE EXPERIENCE
      Sheboygan, Wis., Dec. 2. - The schooner C.P. MINCH was brought in here yesterday afternoon by the Life Saving crew after a terrible experience of ten hours with ice. While off Two River Point she broke away from the steamer OHIO in avoiding a collision. She sailed up the lake within a mile of Sheboygan, where Captain Kauffman raised a signal of distress.
      The Life Saving crew went out to the schooner and with their help Captain Kauffman succeeded in bringing her into port. Two of the crew were badly frozen and three of the life savers were seriously frost bitten. The schooner looked like a hugh mass of ice.
