and ninety-seven passengers were
taken off the steamer IUngrand nt se

The Ulngrand also had her lifeboats
ready when the Swnnmore reached her
They were hanging in their davits
loaded with passengers.
Tlie rescue was made 205 miles

high sea, but there was such perfect
discipline among jtho crews of both

old mariners assert.
One report from the burning ship

Itlngrand. Another says some of the
passengers are still on the Swanmore.
The Swanmore was only u few miles
