utes but two lives were lost. The
most perfect discipline prevailed on
each vessel and the. boats were hoist

a death agony, and then disappeared
under the waters. While most of the
Waesland's boats were rescued by
Hermonldes easily, one of them took
the wrong course in the fog and it
was two hours before it could bo
