Picked Up Around the Docks. The little schooner Arrow, Capt. P. Goodlet, brought in a load of red oak lumber Monday from Rock Island for the N. S. Washburn Co. She likewise recently made two trips to Menominee with cargoes of the same material. Great difficulty is experienced in loading this stuff at the island, it being necessary to erect a tramway on wooden horses from the shore to the schooner. When night comes on the vessel has to be hauled out to a place of safety and anchored in case of a storm. Capt. Goodlet says there is very little business this spring for the small fellows, where last season he had more than he could handle.
