The schooner Abbie L. Andrews is on her way to Buffalo with a novel cargo of lumber. Pfohl & Son have bought three lots of shipwrecked stock, and the Andrews will collect it together. She will take 50,000 feet of maple that was lost last season by the Desmond near Manitowoc, 200,000 feet from the George Steele's cargo lost at Au Sable, and 50,000 feet of pine from the cargo of the T. S. Fassett, which wintered ashore near Sand Beach.
