Description
Full Text

As the barge McKERRAL, loaded with 14,000 bushels of wheat, was on her way to Meaford, Ont., last week, she struck a heavy mass of ice, breaking a hole in her bow. The captain finding it impossible to reach port, ran her toward the Nottawasaga Island, in about eight feet or ten feet of water, where she sank. Four thousand bushels of grain were landed on the island; the remainder is badly damaged.
