Olsen of, the Aiierican. barkentine Ethel V. Boynton^ a bronze Eli-footer of Viking aspeit and ancestry, recently arrived troi I Cuba with a vivid yarn of • the wrcQt of his ship in hurricane blasts. an( pondsrous eeas oiDt the Georgia coast. ; The wife of the ^kipper, Capt. G. W. Waldemar, and hil niece, Gladys Lni^ rock of Boston, w^re in a ship's company: of 1^ all told that drifted six days lashed or grasping life lines on B raft and tfce detached deck house ofthe barkentlnei Sharks swarmed around them at timea and the more vigorous of the tastaways, for diver sion batted the big fellows over the snoiit whenever ^ they came near enough to disturb^the serenity of the women. ^ The stalwart mafe says the skipper's niece and his wife acted as if shipwrecks were a natural part of a sea ^.voyage and did not do any praying, as shipwrecked women are supiiosed to in. raoniffrtts of iinu=iral stress. Per- i\ans one tiling tfial imerfered with prayer, oir-i'i. of a mental sort, was the unremitting extortion of holdlngion and dodging wrecltage and the crdsts •of combers. ( Girl AlmoBt'Loses Hope.' On tlie morning of Monday, J|anuary 18, a) few hours before succor came with the' steamship Manzanillo, Miss Gladys ;had almost abandoned hope, • and saia to the mate: ''We never shalll se^ Boston." He l&iJghed and, pattirlg • Her on the shoulder, remarked: "Don't give up." She a^hswered his laugh with a smile, and said: "We v.ill die .with Btouit" hearts.^' She went' to a hospital it Santiago with the rest, badly bruised and suffering from salt water boily, but she did not die. The Boynton sailed from Mobile for Genoa on December 26 with a fuA cargo of lumber, a large part lashed on Ideck. Off the Florida | coast on Jannary 11 a heavy southeasterly gale lashed up tall sfeasvand forced the lumber ship to heave to under storm try- sail. The g»Ie iiic|reased to a hurr|i- cane, and fearing ^be might pound out heri bow in "tie crashing Jcombers, the skipper turned tail to the blast and rani miles to the northwest under hare poles. The deck load shifted in the flight dpwn the wind and the old ship began to leak. All hands were on deck, the sUrboard watch ai the pumps and the port watch trylifg to.,jettison the deck load, which ^imperiled the lives ^of Ul hands. The T*omen were safe from the tumult ^ in the after deck bouse. 1 • The deck cargo, relieved of its lash- inKB. went by the; board on the morn- lOKJ of January 12; The Boynton was then waterlogged, her main deck al- oiost awash, and^ floundering in the tFougta of Uie v.aVes. I Hit by Huge Wave. A monster sea; which the mate called a "tidal /wtve," but which doubtless was a cumulative wave, or two or more waves rolled Into one, rose 40 feet above the vessel and descended on the de«k thunderously. It proBed over some pf th% seamen. None was In Its almost resistless course. It tore off 40 feet of i the quarter deck. At 2:30 o'clock the next morning a wave'almost as big' as the giant boarded the wreck and; swept the forward bbuse into the tumult The men cut away the main ahd mizzeh masts at daylight. The foijemast later jammed Itself through the bottom of the ship. • The yawl had t^scaped the smashing seas and an ^ITort was.made to launch it. The drifting lumber stove It in and finally; it was broken to matchwood. The cargo below the main deck. lorced up by the water, lifted the deck fri>m the after house to the place wher^ the forward house bad been and thi^ big section went sailing off by itselC and was soon out of view to leeward. The released beams and boards leaped and rolled out of the barkentine from both sides The skipper and the lusty mate, wltli the crew, attacked the after deck bouse and with ax^s and naked hands got off the top to;use as a raft. All bands -got aboard.' and the seas launched It. | The next; morning, tlje mate says, ' be did something that no castaway in bis memory of wrecks ever did: that is, as 'he said, smilingly, "We sighted tbe '.^in de9k,"'Jwbich had drilted - back In a sbift of Uhe gale. ^ vBaftB tashBd Together. ^ TbeTBmaller raff felt as if it might •ooB-g6 to pieces 'and it was decided Uv board tb* main deck, two hours of [bard paddling; wltb broken oars broogbt tbe little nft to the big <«e, jWid after IJashing the two, the sea IMwrlng gone dowkwmewbat, all handr Mttj^'tlw tnuufjMr, tbe men. aasistiDt Good To Wheri Made Witlr Calumet pastry is good to l (M)k at, !

The women lay dowc and the men held X'M-. li.elir .fti-;. At 10:ao that niorn,ing, January tR the Manzanillo hove in sight. The mate, being the tallest in the party, waved as a signal of distress the only bunting saved, the international code signal R, a square flag with a yellow cross on a red ground, which had been made fast to an end of a long piece of board. Most of the shipwrecked were ear ried aboard the JjjinzaniUo from her lifeboat. They were cared for generously aboard and taken to a hospital' at Santiago.!
