The schooner H. W. SAGE in tow of the steamer SAMONA, foundered in the heavy sea on the lower end of Lake Michigan Saturday night. The seas beat heavily on the schooner and the SAMONA cut the tow line in order to pull anongside the SAGE to rescue her crew. Though the task was perilous it was successfully accomplished. The seven men of the crew of the schooner were rescued just in time. The schooner was owned by John Kelderhouse of Buffalo and was built in 1875. She was loaded with ore from Escanaba.
