The dolphin and the pprpolse are smaller whale-like artjrhals.
They are playful and affectionate. They swim together in large
numbers. You ought to se.e what fun they have chasing each-dther.
They can turn somersaults better than you can. Often they come

"Heinje" Wagner, the clever
Boston shortstop, does not wor

And always on th.e'jump. "
In laughter and in tears is he
A genius of his trade,
He finds a smile in everything,

Goads many men to rage.

When tears are wont to flow,
And often stops a quarrel
And stays blind anger's blow.

The Jbker and his kind,
For he helps dispel our errobehes:
