STEAMER LOST WITH Ml IIAMIS.
The Phecda, in From Hamburg, Saw |
News and Courier.
The sinking of a large Danish steamship,
with all hands on board, off the
southwest coast of England during a
terrific hurricane on the 26th of De- J
cember, was the scene witnessed dy:
Capt. K. Ree, master of the Dutch |
steamship Phecda, which arrived in j
port Saiurady night from Hamburg
with a cargo of fertilier material. The
name of the lost vessel is not known,
but it ls believed by some of Capt.
Ree's Officers that she was a large Danish
merchantman, probably the Ivar
of Copenhagen. The vessel went down
about fifty miies southwest of Plymouth.
49 degrees and 25 minutes
north latitude and 6 degrees west longitude.
Capt. Ree says that on the 25th and
26th of December the Phecda passed
. through a hurricane. On the afternoon
of the 26th, about 3 o'clock, the officers i
of the Phecda sighted a biV Thitjv*
tramD. which se-pmprf
badly damaged by the storm, but was \
lighting her way slowly through high |
seas. Capt. Ree signaled to know if j
the steamer was in distress and ne-ed-1
ed assistance. The unknown vessel
did not request aid. She carri-ed her
flag at half-mast. As the Phecda drew
nearer the Dane appeared to be trying
to mak-o a turn a.nd come to the lee
side. The high seas washed her decks
and scattered her boats. At about 4:15
o'clock a mountain-like sea swept over
her, and when it passed the vessel
' plunged downward head first.
So Bodies Found.
Capt. Ree thinks that one last high
sea that broke over the ill-fated Dane
swept the men from her decks. The
Phecda came up to the spot where the
unknown vessel was seen to go down
and stood by until nearly midnight. '
The officers of the Phecda kept a
sharp lookout to see if any of tlie bodies
of the drowned men could be
found, but nothing floated afterward
by which the lost ship could be identified.
The weather was clear after
the storm and the moon shone brightly'
Capt. Re? reported the sinking of the
unknown vessel to the British steamship
Corendon^ en route to G-ilbraltar,
which he spoke shortly after witness- '
i, ing the tragic end of the vessel.
The vessel which sank appeared to j
he a steamer of about 3,000 tons, with
black hull and smokestack. The ,
smokestack had the sira of the per
pendicular cross. It is believed thatj
she was a Danish merchantman owned I
in Copenhagen, probably the Ivar.
The Phecda experienced an exceedingly
rough passage, but being a very
fine ship and in the hands of able officers
and seamen she weathered the j
gale and is entirely seaworthy and j
ready for the sea again at a moment's j

Iowa Farmers Have Special Exhibit.;
Columbia, S. C. Jan. 21?A complete j
presentation of the farmers' coopera-j
tive soci-eties of the western States will!
be an interesting educational feature;
of the Iowa State exhibit at the Fifth
National Corn Exposition, which opens
here the 27th. of this month. The exhibit
will show the methods by which
these societies conduct their affairs,!
and especial emphasis will be laid on j
the cooperative grain elevator orga-,1
mzation, the working of which I
will be demonstrated in actual operation,
and the exhibit will be supplemented
by a series of lectures giving
full knowledge of the various phases
The development of these farmers'
cooperative societies in Iowa has proceeded
to a greater extent, probably,
than in any other State of the Union, I
and it is especially fitting that such j
** an exhibit should come from this

H. F. Atwood, both of whom are thor-!'
oughly familiar with the operation of \
these elevators and the conduct of the
cooperative socieeties. j >
This Iowa exhibit is an. illustration i]
of one of the fundamental purposes <
of the National Corn Exposition?to 4
emphasize and explain the valuable *
results which have been achieved by (
individual farmers and farmers' or- 1
ganizations in various sections, in j*
their efforts to facilitate the handling 1
and systematize the distribution and 1
-marketing of the products of the farm, *
making this process more satisfactory 1
and less expensive to the producer. c
