Full Text

Owen Sound, May 3. - Word has just been received from up the peninsula that the schooner ARIEL, owned by Capt. Findlay McPherson, of Southampton, is ashore on Baptist Island, near Capt Hurd. The tug GEORGE DOUGLAS went to her assistance, but could do nothing on account of a heavy sea. She is a total wreck; no insurance.

The Canadian schooner ARIEL, which went ashore in Georgian Bay last fall, was released and towed to this port where she will be placed in Dunford & Alverson's drydock for repairs. She is not badly damaged.

Note: The ARIEL was ashore three times during 1890, she was eventually removed from Owen Sound Harbor in 1912 as an Navigational Hazard.
