you find that hundreds of ships aiv

cd light colors having the marks In

more closely you would soon discover
that all the ships belonging to Great
Britain, even the magnificent passen
ger steamers like the "Lueauia" and
"Teutonic'," were marked with those
queer signs, and that ships of no other
nation had them. If you were to nsli
