A TIMELY RESCUE
THREE EXHAUSTED SAILORS TAKEN FROM SCHR. ABBIE
MANISTEE LIFESAVERS ARRIVED ON SPECIAL TRAIN
One Man Swam Ashore Through the Icy Seas
Manistee, November 8. - Early this morning the little schooner ABBIE, bound from Beaver Island to Milwaukee with a cargo of bark, ran ashore just north of the Portage Lake piers.
The Manistee life-savers hurried to the rescue on a special train and a gasoline launch towed them to the wreck.
The vessel was submerged with the exception of the cabin on which were crouched three of the crew, nearly worn out by their struggles to save themselves. The remaining member of the crew had saved himself by swimming ashore.
