Wel "l~c You rent a boat, "Any old kind," Row out on the briny deep. You row and row until you find The saud bank which you seek. Then cast your anchor, bait your hooks, down some hundred feet. If not enough, keep letting down Till weight and saud do meet. Then wait a while, pull up again. L)h, boy, it feels so fine To hoisten up a thousand feet Of empty, baitless line! Then your line you bait again. The process you repeat-- Only, this time, you will find You've gone out too deep. Then, again, you start to row, Not minding sun or heat, l_;ntil you strike that certain Sl)t Where weight and sand do meet. And now, that certain spot you've struck You're catching them all right. Your bringing up your weight in fish, \Vithout a kick or fight. But why not take a good size rock, And tie it on your line, Then let it down and pull it up-- And think you play the game? Except for fish, I know, myfriend, The KICK is just the same. ~r SPECIAL EXTRA "Na ture's UCTS Best "" Are Being Demonstrated at YOU ARE INVITED TO TEST THEIR QUALITY.
