Lost Her Life Boats - The steamer Melbourne, which left here on Thursday on her last trip of the season, encountered very rough weather on her way up the lake. Several life boats were lost overboard, and other minor damage done. The boat is now being placed in winter quarters at Toronto. T. Milne, of this city, who is first engineer on the Melbourne, is expected home on Thursday or Friday. His boat has had a very successful season.
