Full Text

Chicago Times. -- On her last trip to Collingwood the schooner REED CASE had a rough experience. She was towed aground at the mouth of the harbor, and when she had taken out about2,000 bushels of grain it was found that the tug had no steam. The foresail was run up and an effort made to sail in. At the pier the CASE's jibboom got mixed up with that of the schooner McLEOD, and before she stopped both jibbooms and bowsprit were in the water. The CASE repaired at Collingwood, paid the damage to the McLEOD and came back to Chicago.
