WOODEN STEAMER GOES UP IN FLAMES
Crew of F. H. Prince Escape from Doomed Vessel near Toledo.
Toledo, Ohio, Aug. 8. -- The crew of the wooden lake steamer F.H. PRINCE bound from Detroit to Cleveland narrowly escaped death today when flames of unknown origin enveloped the bow of the vessel a short distance from Kelley's Isle. The steamer was bound up the lake when she burst into flames and it was with great difficulty that the crew was able to beach her on the east end of the island. Sand suckers soon had water playing on the blaze which was extinguished after considerable damage was done to the forward part.
