"I asked several men to show me
how to put 011 a life preserver, but
(they were too busy saving them

the ship went down and I with it.
It seemed as though I would never
stop. 'Hold your breath,' I kept
saying to myself and I tried hard,

suddenly the wire rope was jerked
from my hand. lYrhaps the Co

I legan going to the top of the
waves. For two hours I floated by

the dark I struck something, it was

wave took me to a raft .and after
those on loard it told me they could
got reach me I climlcd on and was
saved. I had almost no clothing
on and on reaching the San Tedro
I'was given a pair of overalls. W.
il Smith, of Tortland, won't tell
you, but he was one of the most
taluable men 011 the wreck, doing
much to save other women and my

saved by Captain Doran was Mi

Carrie Martin, of Eugene, was
quickly prepared to take her chances
with the ocean, and put on a Hie

thorough inquiry . into the loss of
