THRILLING TIME ON FERRY BOAT.
      Passengers on Edge of Collapse After 36 Hours of Danger.
      Menominee, Mich., Dec. 31. -- After being tossed about on a raging sea for 36 hours and in imminent danger of going to the bottom. ANN ARBOR car ferry No. 3 has reached port in a badly battered condition.
      The boat left Frankfort in good weather, but a few hours after leaving port a terrific blow came up. Cars became loosened and were with great difficultysaved from going overboard.
      A casting weighing 25 tons was broken from its fastenings and flung partly around, crushing the smoke-stack and exhaust pipe and threatening to go through the bottom of the boat.
