Full Text

      The steamer GALE STAPLES went ashore at Pt. Au Sable, Lake Superior, on Monday, Sept. 30. The STAPLES was bound for Hancock, Mich., with a cargo of coal. The crew was forced to abandon the vessel as she was leaking badly. The sea was washing over her decks and she was pounding hard. She was later abandoned by the underwriters as a contructive total loss. The steamer, which was formerly the CALEDONIA, is owned by the Massey Steamship Co., of Superior, Wis.
