- Full Text
Two Rivers, Wis., Oct. 28. -- The schooner DART, of Manistee, Mich., bound to Manitowoc, came to anchor at 3 o'clock this morning, one-half mile north of the harbor piers, and at a quarter after 4 in the morning parted her chains. Her canvas was immediately set, and all efforts were made to keep her off, but to no avail on acount of the strong east wind and heavy surf. The Life-saving crew were on hand with their boats within 5 minutes, but met the two men on the beach as they had waded ashore. The vessel is within fifty feet from dry beach. The captain has gone to Manitowoc to secure a tug. The vessel is fruit laden, and she lies quiet. No water in her yet.
