THE WRECK RECORD
      THE ECLIPSE AND SIGEL.
      [Special telegram to the Inter Ocean]
Ludington, Mich., Nov. 25. -- The schooners ECLIPSE and SIGEL are both lying just above Great Point Sable, wrecked by yesterday's gale Both had left manistee loaded with shingles for Chicago.
      About noon yesterday Anton Rasmussen, a Norwegian, aged 24 years, started to swim ashore from the ECLIPSE, but was drowned in the attempt. This was to be his last trip, and he was to be married upon his arrival in Chicago. The inquest was held upon his remains today.
      The ECLIPSE is reported to be badly broken, and is probably a total wreck. She was the schooner which was stranded in the gale of October, 1881. A man whose name cannot be learned was lost off the SIGEL.
