Full Text

The Chippewa (Mich.) County News says that when the steam-barge Chamberlain was a few miles from Marquette, a man fell overboard and managed to get ahold of the tow line. The barge was slacked up, but the captain, seeing that unless he kept on his course the slack line would sink and deprive the man of his support, went ahead, and the sailor was rescued by a yawl of one of the consorts. The man's life was saved by the rare presence of mind of the captain of the Chamberlain.
