SEA GULL REACHES PORT AFTER STIFF FIGHT
      Capt. F. Henman Forced in to Collingwood
      THORNBURY, Oct. 30 The old idiom of "so near and yet so far" was fully carried out on Monday afternoon last when that veteran and doughty mariner Capt. Frank Henman endeavoured to reach Thornbury harbor with his small sailing vessel the "Sea Gull" but was forced to alter his course towards Collingwood. The Georgian Bay was celebrating its worst storm of the season when the boat was buffeted by the winds one quarter mile from the harbor after being in the path of the wind since leaving Parry Sound. The main sail received a rent and one of the masts was so badly cracked that another had to be secured. The captain made the best of his Collingwood trip by obtaining part of his cargo there, returning to Thornbury on Wednesday to secure the balance of his cargo for a trip across the bay this week-end.
