FIRST VESSEL EVER LOST ON ITS MAIDEN VOYAGE

Chicago Daily Journal

New York, April 16,---In the melancholy roll of marine tragedies that which overtook the Titanic is the first on record wherein a conspicuous vessel has met disaster on her maiden voyage.

The nearest approach to such an unfortunate fate was the cruise of the Naronic which singularly enough belonged to the same line.

She went to the port of missing ships on her second voyage.  Carrying about 300 all told, she steamed out of this port on her return trip nearly twenty years ago and since then there has never been a word as how she met her fate.
