- Full Text
The name Aug Ford might have been seen on the side of a clipper-looking craft which sped by here yesterday with a stiff northwest breeze, lumber laden. During a service of thirty-three years she has been nine times wrecked and abandoned as a total loss, yet is looking in as fine trim as ever.
