Cleveland (Ohio, United States) (search for this): article 10
at storm which swept that lake four years ago this fall, his sons were all lost, with their boat. The father, with the prophetic vision of an old fisherman, saw that a great storm was coming, and his boys were far out on the lake. From a high position on shore he attempted to signal them to return; but the storm, which came on with the suddenness and rapidity often remarked on Lake Michigan, overtook them before they could reach the harbor; the boat capsized in the gale, and the frantic father saw his four sons, the stay of his old age, perish among the angry waves, and he powerless to aid them.
