      Crew Took To a Yawl Boat And After Enduring Fearful Suffering Were Finally Rescued.
Detroit, Oct. 30. - A special to the Free Press from Montague, Mich., says :
      The schooner HENRY C. RICHARDS of Cleveland foundered 15 miles off Little Point Au Sable. The crew took to the yawl boat, and after terrible suffering were picked up by the White River life saving crew.
      The vessel parted from the steamer H.E. TUTTLE, which was towing her Sunday night, and drifted helplessly until she foundered.
