iat the rest of the battleship's divers

The worst was feared when some

avigating lieutenant sent ashore an

ressed immediately and went below,
ly to come up full of Indignation.
"Why, that fellow's been asleep all
mis time!" he said wrathfully. It was
-e. The man had just had his lunch,

an he had thought, he finished it in
few minutes and then sat comfort
