Full Text

Capt. Bert Wilson received a telegram from Capt. Wood, at Milwaukee, Wednesday, saying that the schooner Island City, green lumber laden and bound from Ludington to Milwaukee went down a few miles of the latter city in the easterly gale of Sunday night. Capt. Wood reached shore after a perilous voyage in the yawl, but his two companions, Wm. Marsh and Jos. Rouse, of St. Joseph, went down with the schooner. Both were young men and unmarried. Mr. Rouse was a member in good standing of Sherman Camp, S. of V., and is the first active member the Camp has lost by death. Capt. Wood's home is at South Haven.
