He hammered the paclflsta, cursed

"Washington Is always crossing the
Delaware, or receiving the sword of

events, but I was much relieved to
know that Washington was fond of

So they made a diver out of him
and for a couple of years Barrlnger
cleaned ships' bottoms and pulled up

That was how It happened that when

on board when It seemed In danger of

but there be had some adventures

For the diver is not sll afraid of

Barrlnger has rapped many a shark

he Is gone, for the vicious bony nose
of the fish would bore through his

divers don't argue with them.
The barracuda around this wreck
