The scow MAGGIE JOHNSON, a small craft of 27 tons burden, has just passed through one of the most exciting events of the season on Lake Michigan. While en route for Sheboygan with a cargo of bark she was struck by a squall and capsized and the crew thrown into the lake, but succeeded in reaching the bottom of the craft where the remained for six hours, when they were rescued by a passing vessel which righted her and towed her into port.
