MONTGOMERY WENT TO PIECES ON WEDNESDAY
Cargo of Lumber is Scattered for Miles Along the Shore of Lake Superior

Alf. Richards returned Saturday from a trip to the life saving stations and he reports that the schooner Montgomery, which was abandoned near station 10, two weeks ago had gone to pieces. The schooner was in good shape on the beach Tuesday when Mr. Richards went up but on Wednesday a big blow broke her up and she disappeared.

The Montgomery’s valuable cargo of lumber is scattered for miles along the shore and very little of it was saved. Capt. Perew, agent for the underwriters who carried the Montgomery’s insurance, went up the lake last week to examine the boat but he arrived to late to see the wreck.
