Some years ago says the Western

solvedon a terriDie vengeance. yueu
the crew had retired the cookmanaged
to get them under the influence of
chloroform, and then he deliberately
fired the schooner, took tne Doatana
skinned out. The Indians on the
shore saw the fire and went out to tho
schooner and, with hard work, man
aged to get the msensiDie men asnore,
but the schooner burned to the
water's edge. Pieces of the old hull
can be fonnd around there yet When
