AN UNLUCKY BOAT.
      The schooner SOUVENIR, recently crushed by ice in Tawas Bay, met with numerous disasters during her career. On one occasion she capsized on this lake and her whole crew was lost. Capt. Elmer W. Craine of the steamer WILLIAM H. WOOLF was born on board the SOUVENIR during a trip across Lake Michigan 24 years ago. At that time Capt. D. F. Craine, Elmer's father, now in the FERDINAND SCHLESINGER, was master of the SOUVENIR.
