"The S S Iroquis caused quite a bit of excitement last Sunday morning when it ran aground on Bald Porcupine Island right outside of Bar Harbor The Shore Path and Water front were crowded all day with people from everywhere who had rushed here to see the huge liner run aground. Many thought it would be a matter of days before the ship could possibly be floated again, but at five p.m., with the help of full tide and the U.S.S. Owl, which was stationed here as mail base for President Roosevelt who is vacationing in Maine, the huge liner was pulled off the island very little damaged.

As this paper goes to press, Bar Harbor is all agog trying to locate President Roosevelt who is reported to be dining at various places on the Island. The town is crowded with reporters, camera men, and secret service men but to date nothing definite has been found out."
