LATER LAKE DISASTERS - GREAT LOSS Of LIFE AND PROPERTY
      The gale on tbe lakes last Friday and Saturday was probably the most severe when taken in connection of the severity of the temperature ever experienced on our waters. News of sad disasters are reaching us from every point, some of which we chronicle below, as we find them in our exchanges.
      The propeller DAKOTA which left Buffalo just before the storm, has been lost at Evans Center with all her crew, together with the crew of the porpeller MARQUETTE, who were returning home to Chicago. Portions of the wreckage were seattered along the shore for eighteen miles this side of Buffa1o. William Cross was commander, and Mr. Charles H. Pease had been steward, but the later was not aboard
