Full Text

The schooner D.S. AUSTIN lies on the beach ¼ mile north of the Ludington piers and will be a total wreck. She carried a cargo of bulk salt for Chicago. She left Ludington on Monday morning in tow of the steamer E.S. TICE. Her anchors did not hold and she dragged ashore at 1 o'clock in the afternoon. The crew were rescued. She will probably go to pieces.
