to the surface again tho German soldiers,
who were sunning along tho banks of the
river, opened another fuslllado with rides
and magazlno pistols.
Macgralv again dived and swam as long
ns ho could under wnter. Again ho had
to face the vollejs When he rose to the
surface, the bullets spattering the water
After being In the water flvo hours and
