As the steamer Keweenaw was passing Forty Mile Point [Lake Huron - d] on her late trip, Capt. Jones sighted a large schooner, and passed close to her stern. As he was passing the captain of the schooner came on deck and hailed Capt. Jones as follows:
"Can you tell me where in blazes I am?"
"Why, havn't you seen any body lately?"
"No, I havn't seen a ____ ____ thing since I left Chicago."
"Well, you'r off Forty Mile point, about 2 miles from land."
"Thank you, sir. I'm very glad to have met you. Good-by."
Capt. Jones says he meets propellers heading in all directions, some going towards land, others apparently starting toward Canada. All these eagerly hail the shore boats for information.
