The Steamer Rand Disabled

The disabled steamer Rand was towed into port Monday afternoon by the steamer Ed­ward Buckley. The Rand was lumber laden from Ludington to St. Joseph. When twenty miles off Grand Haven Monday morning her engine was disabled by a broken piston rod. The steamer at once fell into the trough of the big sea, but was picked up later by the steamer Crouse. The towline parted after the Crouse had helped her ten miles, and the steamer Edward Buckley came to the assis­tance of the Rand. Four of the Rand's crew came ashore in a small boat. The deck load is gone from the steamer, but otherwise she suffered but little.
