Mrs. Walker of Mitchell says the Stratford Herald has received a glove belonging to her daughter who was lost with the ill fated Waubuno. It was picked up on an island, but this is the only article out of a large outfit that has been found.

The hull of the ill-fated Waubuno now lies with the bow on Moberly Island and the stern in about 12 feet of water. A party among whom was ex-Warden Cameron, President of the Georgian Bay Trans. Co., have been visiting the wreck. They found the timbers of the vessel far from being rotten; nor were there indications of her having blown up. No trace of any of the bodies was discovered. The Enterprise thinks that the cause of the disaster will ever remain a mystery, and believes from the time that has now elapsed here is no possibility of ever discovering any of the bodies. It advances the theory that the bodies at the bottom would likely be washed close to the rocks and deep holes which abound in the vicinity, and would thus be prevented from ever coming to the surface.
