A Schooner Founders

Adams. Oct. 13- At about 4 o’clock Thursday afternoon a big three masted schooner became disabled in Mexico bay, about five miles south of the Sandy Creek life saving station, and about one and one-half miles from shore. The life saving crew went to the rescue with its beach truck, but was unable to get a line over the boat. The crew returned for the lifeboat, but before it could reach the vessel she went down with all on board, and it is thought all the crew were drowned. The schooner was loaded with wheat. Her name is unknown as yet, nothing having come ashore by which to identify her. Two of her masts have washed shore. The wind bows a gale all the afternoon.
