sister kindly. "A revised copy means
that certain changes hare been made In
tho Bible which wore considered neces

The vomit; man could scarcely con-

Now how muny tunnels does It pass

natural answer. But this Is not bo as
on Its return trip it only goes through
Bcvcnty-elght tunnels. This Is becauso
