Schooner LOOKOUT Strands And The Crew Is Rescued.
      Two Rivers, Mich., April 29. -- In the northeast gale this morning the schooner LOOKOUT, bound from Chicago to Green Bay, went ashore about four miles north of this port. Capt, John Olson, who was also the owner of the schooner, and his crew of six men were taken from the wreck by the life-saving crew from Two Rivers. The LOOKOUT struck a bed of quicksand and will probably be a total loss. She is valued at $2,000 and is without insurance. She was without cargo.
