GALE BEACHES TWO SCHOONERS.
One Will be a Total loss - Only Shift of Wind Can Save Other From Destruction.
Glen Haven, Nov. 17. -- The schooner MARGARET DALL is high and dry on the beach at South Manitou Island and will be a total loss. The DALL was in the harbor, but the terrific east gale drove the vessel ashore against the holding of its anchors. The crew walked ashore in the sand from their stranded ship. The schooner HORACT TABER was also caught at its anchorage and is drifting on the beach not far from the DALL. Nothing can save the TAGER except a shift of wind.
