stories of their rescue from the bark
Carrie Winslow, as that vessel, evtry
seam split asunder by three storms,
was sinking, were told here tonight
by Capt. Carlson, commander 'of the
bark, his young wife, the mate and
eight sailors. They reported here on
the steamer Syndic, by which they
were taken off.
The Carrie Winslow, coal laden, left

Heavy storms raged an Christmas eve
and last Friday and Saturday. Friday
night the gale reached hurricane
force and the foremast fell. There
was more than four feet of water in
the hold. The entire crew manned
the pumps throughout the night. Saturday
morning the Syndie responded
to the signal of distress. An attempt
to launch a Jife boat was frustrated,
as it smashed against the side of the
steamer. When it was seen the Winslow
would be unable to weather
another night, another desperate effort
was made and the only life boat
which remained uninjured on the
Syudie was launched and succeeded
in reaching the Window. Mrs. Carlton,
a bride, was first taken off. Two
other trips were required before Capt.
Carlton, the last to leave the bark,
