"Play balli'' said a stalwart looking
yoting man standing on a big truckload
of watermelon* backed up to the curb
in front of the store at which the melons
lie delivered, and a moment later
he had tossed the first big and solid green
globe to a man standing in the middle of
the sidewalk, who tossed it to a man
standing at the front of the ifore, where
the watermelons were to be piled, says
the New York Sun.
And then these three mm ', ?
watermelons going through the air till
tha whole load had been tr*
from the truck an,: - in a pll*
at the store door. This ls tbe common
way In which walermeions are unload?
ed, and In which they can be shifted a
good deal quicker than th*y could be
by picking them up and carrying
th*m In.
It ls strenuous work, and work that
calls for skill, too. tossing and catching
watermelons; but tbs men that handle
watermelons handle many loada thus
