Gathered in the Local Harbor. While proceeding up Lake Huron with a load of gravel the steamer M. C. Neff, Capt. W. F. Thompson, was struck by the storm off Port Sanilac and barely managed to turn around and make the St. Clair river without foundering, the seas washing completely over her. The Neff is now used for hauling gravel for rebuilding the Harbor Beach breakwater and is equipped with a clamshell. When the waves began washing over her the clam was used to excellent advantage in dumping the cargo overboard; in fact, it worked much faster than a gang of men could, and undoubtedly saved the vessel.
